Re: hookah and astronomy
Dude, my Geography "Lands of the Non-Western People" teacher spent like 15 minutes talking about Shisha. He went over all the different names for the pipe from Hookah to Shisha to Narghile, etc.
He then explained how it worked, showed some pictures of him smoking it with some locals in Egypt, and named all the flavours he tried. Mint, Apple, Strawberry, etc.
I invited him to smoke with me and as soon as it gets warmer, looks like I'll be having a nice smoke with my teacher. Too bad I don't have him this semester... it'll still be fun though.
