Default Re: What does it all mean!? Hookah, Shisha, Maassel, Tobamel, Narghile?

I call tobacco shisha, and call the actual pipe a hookah. I realize these are pretty common terms used in the states, but since joining HP i've also become familiar with a bunch of other names, the second most common being moassel/narghile, from what i've noticed. I just keep an open mind, accept the regional vocabulary differences, and i think it's nice to have a hobby that's enjoyed in all different parts of the world done in various different methods. It shouldn't be something subject to negative criticism, just a difference which you can learn from.
