[quote name='noodle' timestamp='1308159474' post='512749'] [quote name='sjcrain' timestamp='1308144833' post='512717'] I'd love to see one of these machined to fit some standard size of Erlenmeyer flask. Perfect for the science lab [/quote] I think that would lead to a top-heavy setup. [/quote] Something about the size of a mya might work out pretty well for that. There are some large flasks out there.

  3. Any vendors carrying these in the states yet?
  4. [quote name='Shnordle' timestamp='1304807518' post='508656'] thanks for the answers guys, i'll see what he can do about a glass cover [/quote] Any update on that glass cover? I really like the idea of never messing with foil again.
  5. I'm in Indianapolis and even though I've been smoking awhile, I've never been able to duplicate the sheer awesomeness that was my first hookah session. Anyone want to meet up and show me what I'm doing wrong?
  6. I smoke at home, alone, so I don't mind keeping an oven mitt handy. One of those nice, silicone ones with an articulated thumb should work. [quote name='jorlyfish' timestamp='1304968270' post='508821'] Is there a way to be able to pick it up though? Some sort of handle? This is the kind of thing I think of when you say hurricane lamp... and it doesn't seem like there's a good way to be able to pick it up without touching the glass...[img]http://www.mymirrors.co.uk/images/large-shaped-hurricane-lamp.jpg[/img] [/quote]
  7. Anyone tried using a large hurricane lamp in place of a windcover? It looks like there would be enough of a hole on the top to allow for decent airflow in, even without the holes on the side.
  8. If anyone is interested in reading up on an analysis of what the emails did/did not contain check this link: [url="http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2009/11/the-cru-hack/#more-1853"]http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2009/11/the-cru-hack/#more-1853[/url]

[/quote] Hahaa! Does the QT even come in red :$? [/quote] I saw a really decent knock off that had a red base with a gold-tone stem. Looked completely awesome. My only issue was that most of my chinese knockoffs that involved a screw-on stem had cheap threads that wore out fast.
  10. Overall the layout is fine, but the page that lists the threads feels cluttered and hurts my eyes. Once I'm in the thread it's not really a big deal. Maybe a more muted color scheme would help.
  11. I'll have to do some running around this weekend and see what I can find from some of the shops around here. I've seen some of the flavors mentioned. Will report back.
  12. I've tried searching on this with poor results. I did find that Nakhla and Al Fakher both have pipe flavors, but the one review I found in our reviews section said that AF was horribly disappointing. Coupling that to the fact that I fail at Nakhla (coughing up a storm, whether packed by me, or at any of the local lounges) leads me to asking here. I smoke a briar pipe every once in awhile, but tend to notice that it makes my tongue kind of raw. I rarely get this from hookah, so I'm looking to combine the two for an optimal session. Any suggestions for a good brand to try?
  13. I have the mini with the scalli mod and glass screen. I like it fine, but I can only really compare it to the egyptian bowls that I've had previously, and it handily beats them. I've tried it with the glass screen and with foil, and I like the glass screen better, since it's less wasteful and mostly effortless. I don't really care about cleaning it, since it's not really a display piece for me. I have noticed that I get better results with cocos on the glass vs. Goldens. Goldens seem to burn out faster on the glass than when I use foil.
  14. QUOTE (fcbayern @ Nov 13 2009, 10:56 AM) QUOTE (Charley @ Nov 12 2009, 06:25 PM) It sounds reasonable to me. your looking at this as if its a game as most ppl do but it is not its a business. It is a game, isnt it? Why would I watch a business? If I wanted to watch a business I will watch MSNBC. I'm not sure that this is the only point here. For me, it also comes down to sportsmanship and class. I've seen some celebrations that are straight up mocking the other team. Some teams, like the Colts, have strict codes of conduct for their players which I think are critical for team sports today. Don't follow soccer as much, so don't really know the state of the game there.
