Default RIP stargate story

i went to classes today. there was a new teacher today, "what are you into?" she asked me. "i like shoegazing and hookah." turned out she is lebanese, but she didnt quite understand what shoegazing is, but instead of telling her its just a genre of music i explained it vaguely, "you have to hear it to feel its essence."

afterwards, heres where things get depressing and happy at the same time.. i came home and went straight to cleaning my stargate. i tried out sambooka's beer method, worked well. plenty of hot water, lots of scrubbing, dryed everything so it wouldnt rust.

as i was assembling the stargate i was thinking, "id sure like to smoke a bowl right now." but nah, i was just planning to put the stargate up and sit on the computer doing work. anyways... when it came time to screw the stem to the base of the stargate, something dreadful happened!

the acrylic had finally stripped!!! i knew this would eventually happen! i had been smoking it everyday for months and months, each time i would unscrew it, a bit of white powder would get on my hands. but finally today, it had completely stripped after all this use. i kept screwing it hoping it would tighten but no, it was kaput.

i freaked out. i cant go without hookah even though i wasnt planning on having a session today. so i called bilal (or billy as he prefers it ) since i was initially planning on buying a hookah from him a long time ago. he immediately sprung into action to get me one while i called my friend joey the viking, to see if i could get a ride from him.

he came, we drove to the new starbuzz warehouse. amazing, i was like wow

and there it was, a KM black pear waiting for me. we walked around checking things out, its honestly a hookahnauts dream. we also talked for a bit. and yes, i got a pair of the infamous starbuzz pocket tongs haha.

me and joey the viking then drove back to my house. smoked a bowl of starbuzz white peach while we played halo and ate pizza. turned out to be a great day even though i was freaking out over my stargate finally kicking the bucket.

RIP stargate, you were amazing, you got me laid numerous times and you were there for all the parties i had with other hookah pro members. you were a beautiful one.

i used it ALOT! so i was pretty sad when the acrylic finally gave out. there are some things im going to miss about it, for fucks sake, the thing got me laid with 2 different women! MULTIPLE TIMES! so yea, im going to miss it.

as for the KM i got today, i can see why people like it, it smokes great! but when it comes to looks, the stargate is one sexy beast , i mean come on, it got me laid with 2 different women! MULTIPLE TIMES!

overall, there are great things about them both. and i want to thank you mahir for selling me my stargate, i took good care of it but this was something i couldnt have prevented. i can see why they've made the new stargates with glass instead of acrylic. everytime you unscrew the base, before cleaning, or to put water in, it would slowly strip the threading. not sure why taqseem didnt see this problem.

HAHAHA! yea, the sad thing is i dont have a car hahaha. imagine if i did have a car - one week im drinking iced tea with mahir, next week im wine tasting with smiley haha.

dont worry, yea i was freaking out but hell, i smoked it everyday about two times a day, not to mention the sessions with friends that lasted for hours and hours. i definitely got my money's worth from it, along with a ton of good memories.

That is a bummer man, but at least you got a KM out of the deal. I personally don't like the looks of a Stargate. I mean maybe if I was a Star Trek goober I'd like it! LOL

I'm pretty sure Daedra will have no problem in that department..Lol..I loved how he mentioned it repeatedly in one post and then again repeated himself again in another post and went all out to capitalize "MULTIPLE TIMES". Got to love him.

I'm so jealous that you can just go hang out with so many HP peoples. I just live in the world's unluckiest state, so far away from vendors and other HP peoples. One day I will make it over to Cali though (something I've always planned on to do before I die. I need to get off the damn east coast. I have only been really off twice in my life (went to colorado and Minnesota, both for health conferences, was paid for by my college))

Again I am bored in class so of course I'm on HP writing the world's longest reply posts. Lol

daedra, just listen to the other posts, it sounds like it's not dead just yet. i have owned at least 20 hookahs. almost none go bad (unless you break the stem) just rig it like mentioned above. most good quality hookahs last years, the only problem we all have here is that we always want another newer one (like women in your case daedra!) don't toss this one just yet, work through. you are free to buy all the hookahs you want but don't be quick to discard what you have, keep it a part of your collection even if it isn't your favorate anymore. who here thinks daedra needs to have his own harem?

i think maybe i should keep it - but space here is so limited. although taping it up does sound good, i dealt with that in the past when my nammor wouldnt stay in the hose port, it worked but man that was a hassel to deal with.

slowly adjusting to the KM pear, its bigger than the stargate which is nice, and it does hit very well, not entirely different but it does hit very well. i'd gladly pay more for this KM that what i got it for.
