    It's saddening how misinformed many people are :shead:

    At least a few commenters quickly tried to set him straight on how wrong he is in his assumptions. :sh:
    We should all get on there and comment, set the record straight!

    If you inhale the smoke into your lungs, then you deserve what you get...

    That thing had a carburetor, pretty sure it's designed with medicinal use in California in mind.

    It turns from a marital aid into a hash pipe. It's the world's worst transformer.

    Yeah, that pipe kinda looked like it was for something else... :hip1:

    But there will always be people like that writer. It's part of tobacco history and culture. When Tobacco first showed up in England the Church was against it, doctors wanted it to be by prescription only, and by 1620 Tobacco growth and import was already being regulated and growth was banned in England entirely. SOURCE 1620.

    At least the Hobbit is coming out this winter. I'd lay wager that the forum will see an increase after that. Dwaugh can work up a graph for us... The months before the Hobbit vs. The months after the Hobbit.

    Win some. Lose some.

    **Edit** Further reading showed in 1632 that Massachusetts forbid public smoking.

    My response to him might be something like...

    "I have no taste buds in my lungs. Perhaps you'd like to try and inhale a milkshake... see how that works for you Mr. Anti-Tobacco man!"

    Looks like the guy set out to make a vibrator but forgot to leave a cavity for the battery. All the parts were already machined so he had to try something else. Still, even with ingenuity, he ended up with a nice looking piece of machine tooled whatever. Geez, the music in the background even sounds like porn music.

    Cool little hash pipe, works as well as a coke can and tin foil.

    That is definitely not a tobacco pipe. Just goes to show the level of ignorance that is the Internet. It is a very cool little piece of machine work though. If I were a pothead that would be my convenience of choice.
