Explaining drug policy with the long arm of the... Octopus?

But then I thought wait, give the Octopus a chance because all these years later and I still don't understand it...

I've looked a long time to find a photo of the earth pipe in Africa in use, finally found one!

Looks like this one has a bowl outside the hole, going into a hole filled with water. Straws above waterline and bam, earth bong!

I also touched up my post #42 on page 5.
"Mmmmmhhh, so earthy!" LOL Reminds me of some of the dumber methods I've used in the past myself. Good find.

We made a water pipe/hookah in college and called it the “hoover”. It was a large round fishbowl that had a bowl stem and toking hose coming out of a make shift lid for the fishbowl. It was mounted on a small furniture dolly so it could easily be moved around the room. It also had interchangeable bowls depending on the size of the “crowd”.

"The women of the Vale of Kashmir, one of the loveliest places in the world, have long been considered among the most beautiful in India. The languorous and exotic nautch dancers, with their jeweled headdresses and their richly embroidered costumes, play a conspicuous part in Kashmir ceremonies, particularly on those occasions when the Maharaja squanders a fortune for the celebration of some August event."



Nautch dancers in Kashmir, 1928

Ah, the art of alliteration. Anything in that fishbowl would have needed a very high tolerance.

We did have a gar fish in an aquarium though. Feeding time was always a hit.
