    Seriously, we are just a couple guys that like smoking our tobacco (which is soaked in flavoured molasses) through water cooled pipes. We don't want any problems or incidents, we just want to go outside and relax while smoking something that tastes like candy, as opposed to a regular cigarette.

    I was hoping this thread was about another kind of smokable substance. Which I can help anyone out-of-towners with.
    You wanna do that on your own time in your apartment/house whatever with PAX'ers then more power to ya... but don't do it around the convention center, including freeway park. The people using freeway park legitely won't like the hassle & we dont need the convention center folks gettin pissed at us

    ?? if it's legal, then who cares?
    It's... not legal. He was talking about weed one would assume... which is what I was talking about.

    I don't care if you guys smoke tobacco from a hookah... just dont bring illegal drugs to the convention center or any areas associated with PAX. That's not a comment directed at your "normal everyday smokers"... it's directed at everyone.

    As info, I did not say that. May want to fix your quote tree.

    I'm just saying. Joking or not (it isn't clear that this is in jest), this is the kind of thing I don't want on the forums or at PAX. Seriously. I have no problem with adults smoking legal whatever through whatever they want. But this isn't helping the cause.

    can someone just delete these peoples' posts? they're pretty much just trolling at this point.

    Him or you? Of course there's going to be confusion when several people run in here asking to smoke pot. The best action is to just not talk about illegal drugs and stick to the real topic at hand.

    Ok so i figure the way we should do this is, on friday/saturday night just check out freeway park every once in a while, if you see me and leaf smoking the hookas, just feel free to set up, or just smoke! and if we keep it clean and cool, we can make this a part of our PAX experience! w00t!

    Why do you guys keep calling the Tobacco Shisha?
    Shisha is the actuall name of the Hookah in Egypt and other persian gulf countries... not the Tobacco.
    Other names are of course Hookah which is from India and Nargila (silent N) from most arab countries and eastern european countries.

    What I think you guys are doing is seeing the name as "Shisha Tobacco" and thinking that its called Shisha, when its just pretty much saying its Hookah Tobacco.

    The acctuall names for the Tobacco is Ma'sal which is pretty much arabic for "honeyed" or Tobamel which is a generic word for the stuff you smoke from hookahs wethere containing Tobacco or not

    glad to help you guys out on this and not use the wrong wordings ^_^.

    I've always heard the tobacco referred to as Shisha. IMO it has adopted that name in America so people will differentiate hookah tobacco from, say, pipe or cigarette tobacco. Not like it's a crime against language or anything...

    Slightly related tangent: Look at French Canada. In Canada, (I forget the french words) one word is the equivalent to 'condom' and another to 'lollipop'. If you go to France, they swap. Never go into a candy store asking for condoms. :P True story.

    Yeah, dont smoke around me either.

    Go to your local smoke shop and ask for shisha or nargila and you'll get what were smoking.

    If you ask for what you said they'll look at you funny.
    also for people who do not know, your thinking hahesh, not seisha (spelling on both?) being the ill-legit substance

    Shisha (nargila, flavored tobacco) is shredded tobacco, dipped in flavored molasses with bits of fruit (sometimes). Its a legal substance with no chemical effects (within the context of drugs such as THC or hallucinogens)

    "Hashish (from Arabic: حشيش ', lit. "grass"; also hash''') is a preparation of cannabis composed of the compressed trichomes collected from the cannabis plant. It contains the same active ingredients but in higher concentrations than other parts of the plant such as the buds or the leaves" ~ Wikipedia

    1 - Roll of regular foil
    1 - Knife
    1 - tongs
    x - A hand full of paper towels
    1 or 2 - liters of bottled water
    1 - propane torch

    You can probably skip the water unless the body of your hookah is funky shaped or tall. 32? Haha man, I picked up a pack of large circle coals and one pack is going to be moooorrreeee than enough. Better safe than sorry though, finding some of that stuff in seattle is kind of hard, atleast a few years ago.

    And I'm still trying to find watermelon flavour.

    no Shisha is not the Tobacco... it may be what you americans call it. but thats not what it is..
    Its sad that not only do you yanks have to butcher the language you call your own, but then you have to take other languages and just take any word you want and put any definition you want with it.
    silly.
