Default Death to the Carpet...

Ok... another in the line of coal mishaps.... or as I am beginning to think of them as - "Death to the Ugly Carpet" adventures....

Picked up Nakhla Pistacho and AF Cherry, get home - clean everything set up (finally) the prefect bowl... smoking the Nakhla and all is good... notice the hookah wasn't seated fully.

Without even stopping to think about the 2 large chunks of coal on the bowl, I "seat" the stem...

We ALL know what happens next.... the coal deiceds it hates my poor ugly carpet and does a striffing run... but first by BOUNCING off my arm, then landing UNDERNEATH the coffee table. The coal barely touched my arm and only sat on the carpet for less than 30 second.... but appearently these Dynimite Fingers burn HOT!

Another burn....on both me and the carpet.

Get this - even though the coal bounced off my forarm, it wasn't on long enough to even singe the hair on my arm - but did produce 3 small blisters!

So.... I DUB this the official

DEATH TO THE CARPET THREAD.......

Post all your burns, holes, and or ouchies here....along w/ the story of your hookah's attempt on you or your carpet/sofa/ect life...

Ohhhhh, "KNOCK on WOOD!", I hope I don't have to add to this thread!!

I have knocked coals over in my garage, while having a few beers...whoops! But I have a cement floor.

My friend jagarby put a coal in an ashtray, and the ashtray exploded..and the coal dropped on a plastic table..

I must admit, the coals scare me!!!

Ohhhh man haha....whew..
yeah I have a good one.
I dropped a nicely-lit golden 40mm onto my LINOLEUM kitchen floor :
Awesome. Left a two foot diameter area of smelly burnt spots, just peppered.
You wanna talk about ugly? hehe

Fi burnt the linolium (sp) in our bathroom. Right in between the toilet and the sink. It's two spots, ones a quarter black burn mark and the other is about the size of a nickle. RANK!

My last mishap was a girl at a party of mine, too drunk, had her legs crossed and then decided to uncross them with brute force. The hose happened to be in the right place for her leg to land, and the hookah did a flip right off the table. Coal everywhere. Had to waste a lot of good beer to save the carpet.

We call those people jackals. They come to your party, get hammered and either knock over the hookah or throw up all over your bathroom.

Also, it never hurts to throw the crown of foil around the bowl. It wont save your carpet from the jackals, but should prevent small bumps and over anxious hose passing from knocking the coal onto the carpet.

2 years ago on a school trip I took my hookah with me and we stayed in a hotel. The only thing i can say is that holes on the carpet where bigger than the base of the hookah. ( The coal fell on the carpet but we though there was no fire... its was slowly burning.) The next base we used the hole to put the hookah on the floor not on carpet 8)
