Default Another Hookah Tip over

Well, I am sitting there taking a break in between puffs. The coal is nearing the end of its life. My hookah is already unstable as it is, on carpet with its teardrop base. Anyway, it just started to tip towards me. I was like NOOO and the coal fell of my bowl and onto my leg bounced of that and hit the carpet. I don't panic so I just grabbed the nearest fluid, which was my coke and poured it on the coal then discarded the extinguished coal. As for leg damage I suffered a little black mark with a 5 minute sequence of pain. I am alright though, and another catastrophic event contained

I've had many dodges on this sort of thing, but not because my base is unstable. Most of the time someone isn't paying attention and knocks my hookah right between my legs. I know what your thinking but I make sure I slap that coal away!!!

oh wow, I had a tip over at a friends house with two coals that shattered when they hit the carpet and really made a mess. I dumped water and scrubbed and scrubbed, but the damage is done. I hope she isnt too mad, I treated her to dinner and a movie, I hardly think that makes up for the roasted carpet though.

chupacabra's are known for vicously killing small to medium size animals, and at times even large animals. but they are also infamous for tipping over our hookahs.

I don't usually have base issues that end in tipping. Mostly if i smoke with more than two or three people, someone gets overzealous and yanks on the hose thus pulling over the hookah. I usually save the hookah itself but the coals go all over. Now I have a big fluffy scorch marked towel I put under the base when I smoke because I am tired of trying to clean/fix unfortunate coal marks.

hahaha! luckily i've never suffered a crotch burn, but my hand and legs have suffered pretty bad burns. usually at the same time. someone gets overexcited grabbing the hose and it tumps over, getting burns on my legs, in my paniced state, i usually grab the coal with my hands, causing nothing but more burns. funny how the hookah never falls towards the person who tips it.

I know, WTF is up with that.
oh wait I know why, the chupacabra see's who is knocking it over and try's to save it by pushing it the other way a little to hard.
