Default RIP - The stargate

And yesterday was a sad day for all of man kind in the hookah community.

My beloved black mamba (AKA My stargate) died yesterday.
Sniffle. You were a loving loyal companion. I don't think I'll ever find another hookah who braved the bowls, good and bad, like you did.

I don't think I'll find another friend that seems as thick and sturdy as you were. I already miss you dearly.

RIP.


So there it is folks. My stargate has officially died. The base will no longer stay connected to the stem. It has slowly stripped w/ many years of use.
I will miss my friend. I already hate using my other hookahs. They just arn' as sturdy, and the seal seems weak, and the purging systems suck. I find myself moping around. It sucks.... I don't think I'll ever find one I like as much, and that's sad.

Sad days ahead for me

Now I'm concerned that I may not find another hookah that I will love. I love screw bases but afraid that there are only two (the stargate and mya) and i don't know what I should purchase next...

I am sure you will find another love. We always think that they are the only one for us until we actually get out there and start to see how wonderful other options are. you must play the field a bit and get right back on the horse. Of course there should be a period of mourning but you will learn to love again once you start dati.... wait... what were we talking about?

Its hard coming down from a long term relationship. You knew that you could be trusting and give all of yourself to the other half of the relationship, but alas that is no more. Get out there again and find another.. the magic will happen.


P.S. Don't "Jump" Without A "Parachute" until then!

Sorry to hear that KK. Losing a friend you loved is really tough. I'm sure in time you'll find a new best friend.

Sorry to hear about this tragic loss! =[

I think screw on bases are the best, because there is always that numbnuts at a party that likes to pick it up by the stem.

Good luck shopping, hope you find something great! =]

*bows my head in a moment of silence*

I have had the privilege of smoking from the black mamba a couple of times .. and I must admit that she provided a really fantastic smoke! You will be missed ...

I am sorry for your loss KK ..

Thanks guys.

I'm pretty set on it because I've had hookah's w/ grommets and i don't like how unsecure they are , or the lean, etc.

I've had km's, I've had mya's I just don't know what I am going to do. I am actually really sad about this. I tried to smoke this morning when I got home, besides the fact i have shitty coals, the whole session was ruined for me because mamba was sitting in the corner , all deshoveled.... I was quite depressed. LOL. I feel like I'm lost a pet or something.

Oh well.

Thanks for the kind words everyone

Sorry to hear about your loss. any chance it could be restored perhaps? Even if in a slightly modified state. It doesn't sound it but there's always that glimmer of hope! A Steel Thread Insert perhaps?
