How To Deal With A Buzzkill
While you may not think that Dane Cook is funny, he came up with a brilliant point during one of his standups that perfectly names the one stoner in the group that just... Well they suck. He aptly named this friend "Karen" and stated that every single group of friends has one. It's totally true. There are always people who get stoned and want to talk about deep life decisions or how they think that the world will be taken over by giant spider aliens that shoot lasers from their eight eyes. People get weird when they get high.
When a Buzz Killington shows up in your smoke circle, there's quite a few things that you can do to get them to shut up or leave. The buzz kill will hang on as long as they can to make sure that they feel like they're part of the group. To get a buzz kill to stop brutally attacking to positive vibes in the room, I've found that if you just kind of ignore them, they will either get that what they're saying is a bummer or they'll leave. That's the not so nice way... I use this method on people that seem to never have their own weed or who constantly have something sad to talk about when they're high.
The nicer way to tell someone that they're a buzz kill is to straight up tell them. You can either do this in front of the other friends or you can pull them aside. Basically, all you need to say is "hey man... You're bumming everyone out". If the person is chill, they'll get it and attempt to lighten their mood. This situation can still go wrong when your friend now translates from buzz kill to extreme paranoia and then they think you're yelling at them.
Dealing with a buzzkill comes with the territory of smoking! It takes some skill to master but I'm sure that in no time, you'll be able to calmly express to your rain cloud friend that bumming everyone out kills them vibe. If the friend doesn't understand, there's not a whole lot you can do other than say "see ya!"
Bongs Aren't Always Glass...
Bongs are the greatest smoking device. They cool off the smoke, they hit hard, and they come in a variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and complexity. Most people are familiar with the glass bongs, which are the most popular. Plastic works as well but never hits as cleanly as glass. There has to be other things to smoke out of though right? Here are five of the coolest bongs that I could find on the internet that aren't made of glass and would still make your friends jealous.
1. Coconut Bong
This is a bong that must be smoked on a visit to a tropical place! There would be nothing cooler than sitting on a beach with white sand and turquoise water smoking dank out of a coconut. They look cool and already come with water that happens to enhance your smoking experience by flavoring your weed like the tropical fruit! To make this awesome contraption, I found a simple way that you can do it yourself.
What You'll Need:
To start, match the drill bit to the straw that you will be inhaling from. Drill out one of the holes already on the coconut. Next, make sure thatuor drill bit fits the down stem as well. Drill out another one of the holes on the coconut. Test out what you've done so far and make sure that everything fits. Next, drill out the third hole and this will be the carb. Congrats, you've finished your coconut bong! Be sure not to push down on the coconut too hard when you're drilling. They can and will crack. Now, time to pack it up and enjoy some coconut flavored smoke!
2. Bamboo Bongs
These amazing creations are another piece that has a tropical feel. These unfortunately are a little more difficult to make and I recommend buying them rather than making them yourself. They are intricate and beautiful, not to mention their naturalness gives the smoke a very clean, naturey feel to it. I suggest trying one of these out if you can, as it is definitely an uplifting experience!
3. Lego Bong
This one is pretty complicated but is sure to be the center of attention among your pot head friends. Not only that but this piece can be constructed during smoke sessions. How much fun it is it to play with legos while you're stoned? While it may be questionable if the bong would hold water, I have a solution for you! Mix a little bit of glue with some water and paint the outside of the bong with the liquidy glue. Now it's airtight and water tight! Time to get stoned off some legos!
4. Game Controller
Talk about nostalgia! This piece isn't quite a bong but how can you deny the awesomeness of smoking out of an N64 controller? The game system was great when we were young and it's great now! Thankfully, someone thought to themselves "we could smoke out of this..." And hence this masterpiece!
5. Ice Bong
This is something you attempt when you're feeling brave. Making a nice bong requires that you create some sort of mold that the water will sit in while it freezes. While that may seem complicated, some people (myself included) can see how dope it would be to smoke out of something like this, even though it'll only last a short time.
