Another 12 months in a Back Brace (6 months rehab). When the did the fussion they had to reroute all the lower back nerves (conveniently there was some surgical steel close by and that was a safe place to put those nerves) Now when any weather changes occur my back tells me. During the first 12 months I was on Morphine Tablets for the pain. and after 3 months of walking around like a zombie I decided that I had enough I kicked the Pain med's and just said I can and will get through it spent many a winters night standing in a cold swimming pool to dull that aching eating pain. or laying in a hot bath to soak the knots out of the back muscle spasms. I still experiance pain but it has not killed me just raised my tollerance level for pain to gianormous heights. I have lost a lot of sensation in my arms legs hands and feet. I was 34 years old when this happend and now 16 years later I still carry on. Now some would call that a disaster I would rather call that fate for on that day when I saw that truck approaching I resigned myself to the fact that I may not make it out alive. I faced death and lived thus my fear of dying was erased.

So a broken bowl is not a disaster but a minor inconveniance.



Pack another and enjoy.
Good point. Some people need to be re calibrated. On a big level (and a personal one as well but less so) i'd say the real tragedies were 1 June 1979 since that is the day Rhodesia died, September 28, 1989 since that was the day that Koevoet died & 27 April 1994 since that was day that neo-Bolshevism overtook the RSA.

In more a more spectacularly bad sense along the lines you're talking about i'd say that a disaster for me would be being sprayed with spall & shrapnel after an RPG impact which is something i'd guess you know about as well.

As for narghile disasters the worst was the result of a haulage company losing my collection of antique Arab and Turkish rigs and the insurance company stiffing me. That still bugs me even though it was more then 10 years ago.

my "disasters" aren't really disasters, more like minor issues... 1st one: i was at a party and brought my hookah, then while i was letting my friend load a new bowl (i was giving him tips since he had ordered his first hookah earlier that day), and as he's walking out of the kitchen, a drunk guy threw his elbow back and knocked the bowl out of my friends hands and put a pretty big chip in it... it's still smoke-able, but my phunnel has some character now, i was mostly angry that he didn't listen when my friend yelled "look out, comin' through". 2nd one: i was smoking out back with a group of friends when my dog decided to come and say "hi" to them, and would have knocked my MZ over with his tail, if my friend hadn't caught the stem with his foot... two NEAR disasters, but nothing big yet... things aren't ALWAYS bad when stuff happens.... i think.....

i bought a brand new temsah 31" tri-metal from John and was like a kid on christmas as i opened it. i smoked a bowl out of it with a couple friends but in the middle i had to leave to go to work. i decided to leave it with my friends and they could finish the bowl. while at work i got a text saying "idk what happened but i went to shut the light of on the porch and your hookah was shattered". i had it for less than 3 hours and boom. it was no more. (i lost a phunnel bowl too) luckily bases arent that expensive and john sent me one of those rubber protectors so it wont happen again. i decided to blame the wind just cuz i dont wanna start anything with my friends. oh well, it has been replaced.

when its the one bowl you need to use that night it kills the night

ya i shattered my vortex a few days ago, i started using it for tangiers (works better than the phunnel), picked it up off the counter, emptied the old tobacco went to go wash it out and dropped it, right as i did it i started cussing before it hit the ground cause i knew the concrete floor was going to kill it. kinda surprised how many piece is broke into
