a few people have them in my dorm. they're pretty relaxing and a decent way to chill with people, but i think too many people just smoke them to be cool. they're not that great, not good enough to buy one.
ya its actually called Hookah and the stuff you smoke is called shisha or nargile... seems to be getting pretty big in california with lots hookah bars and stuff... its getting well known at my colloege in portland too. my house a a two hoser and a four hose rotating one that is fuckin sick. best flavors are:
When worst comes to worst skiing comes first.
theres a hookah bar by my house that serves kids and theyre cool plus my friends and i had one for a while but a few drunken nights beat the shit out of it and peices broke slowly one by one so we bought a new bowl and a new base but it wont hit at all, were probably gonna by a two or three hoser. plus its fun if you have a lot of pot and people to pack a fat hookah bowl of weed
