Default Re: Why is hookah so harmful, but so good? :S

Dunkel, you clearly missed my point. It's probably even my fault for not making it blatantly obvious. Now let me re-fix your list.

-Using soda cans as wind covers can burn Dioxin from the plastic layer on the inside of the can. Buy a real wind cover.
-Burning soda cans remove creosote from your fireplace, imagine what it can do to your throat/lungs again buy a real wind cover and if you must use a soda can wind cover don't use a blow torch to burn the aluminum.
~You are probably right when you say all coals give off CO, I don't feel in the mood to research.
~If you have found a way not to put coals on foil, please let us know. Coals burn hotter then most lighters (not butane though.).
~I personally don't have much in the way of extra cash to throw down for a $10 piece of metal. If you want me to get a real windcover, I will send you my paypal information, and feel free to pitch in.
Good day, sir.
