Default Major accident.... leave yor coals away from the hookah!

So tonight I had what was my most embarrassing hookah mistake yet. Many of us have dropped coals and burned your carpet, but nothing to this scale...

I had my half-full CH quick-light box on the coffee table, and my Syrian standing right between it and my sofa. I used the little battery powered fan to ash the bowl, without thinking about the open box of coals.

I go back to smoking, only to see about 15 seconds later, a GIANT flame coming from the box. I must have blown a lit piece of coal into the box.

I grab the cover of the box with my tongs and carry it outside, where it continues to burn like it's the 4th of July.

Funny in hindsight, but scary as hell for about 30 seconds. I'm just glad my fire alarm didn't go off.

holy hell hahaha well the worst thing happened when I was smoking my Hookah and my dog jumps over the hose and his hind leg pulls on the hose and i see the tall KM tower of death fall over and the 3 pieces of coal destroy my carpet. These were some coconut shell ones so it shatters as i try to pick them up off the carpet so I end up trying to stomp it out. Now I have burn marks on my carpet taking shape of Hawaii on my carpet. damn dog.

a friend of mine was smoking in his living room, a tiny lit piece of coal fell down, and crawled under the sofa, and started burning slowly. Half an hour later he sees the whole sofa on fire, and guess what, the utility company has cut off water off the building to fix some of the water lines lol.

Lol that sucks! At least nothing was damaged and that you are okay!

Hehe maybe you should've tried to put them out with water, dry em, and see if they are of use again. I've seen cocos that have been put out and then reused like they were never even put out in the first place. Maybe all coconut coals are the same?

Man, thats funny. I made this mistake of throwing away "ash" from a tray I'd stopped smoking a half hour earlier in a previous apartment. I smell something funny.... a coal burned through the can, through the vinyl floor, and was working its way through whatever was under that.

last friday I was invited to a party and given permission to bring my hookah. I set up my hookah and I was the center or the party because alot of the people didn't know what a hookah was and many had some distorted views on what it is used to smoke. I felt so cool educating and intruducing people to hookahs and showing off some cool tricks. the coals on the hookah had gotten small so the smoke was getting lighter so I lit a couple of instant light coals. the first one lit fine so i placed it on the hookah. The second one was giving me some trouble, I had to keep putting a flame on it so that it would fully light then all the sudden half of it exploded. its sent hundreds of small chunks of coal on me. I was wearing my favorite shirt that was very very comfortable but the tiny chuncks of coal burned about 12 small holes in my shirt. I Jumped up because it burned my skin and i dropped the other half of the coal on the coffee table leaving a burn mark. suddenly I wasn't so cool and I'm not sure I'll get invited to a party like that one anymore. LOL. I have a bunch of small burn marks on my chest and stomach now that fit the holes on my shirt perfectly

lol i've got one...
We were having a party and we were smoking out of a tall hookah my friend made at his shop, (like 5 feet tall...lol) it's slightly unstable so we smoke outside. Well I was in my kitchen lighting about 4 natural coals, when they were done I placed them in a coal carrier and proceeded to walk across my living room and out my sliding glass door to the patio to smoke.

At the sliding glass door way were my two friends who were both very intoxicated, (i was still pretty sober, so this is not my bad...lol)

One of them in perfect timing reached out for a full arm slap at my other friends face, however his hand hit my coal carrier instead, sending the coals falling towards my two nice wood tables. Upon contact with the tables they shatter into 1000s of pieces, burning the table, and burning the carpet, it was horrible. The room was filled with silence as I watched 100's of little holes burn into my carpet.

I didn't even care to save the coals, I just didn't want my place going up in flames. So i grabbed a glass of water and a rag and dipped and extinguished as many large pieces as I could before saying forget it, and dumping water over the entire area. A steamcleaning later, I just have about 50 holes about finger-tip deep.

The moral of the story? If you are drunk at a hookah party, do not slap anywhere near the hookah, otherwise you end up forking out $500 to replace carpet and a table.

However, after the deep cleaning, I asked the group, "So shall we smoke some hookah?"
lol

These are some epic stories. Too bad I've had nothing very exciting happen to me yet... Or maybe that's a good thing.
