the best quote in the article:
"The IBM PC was created by people who drank alcohol. The Mac was created by people who smoked pot."

Shouldn't this have the OBVIOUS tag?
 
2002-03-16 01:57:43 PM  
total and complete waste of time.

but can i have a hit?
 
2002-03-16 01:58:12 PM  
I never thought of Burzum as chill-out stoner music. But then again, I don't use Macintosh's either
 
2002-03-16 01:59:22 PM  
If they made a mac into a bong, I think the moniker of nerd may be removed.
 
2002-03-16 01:59:31 PM  
heh - i know lots of stoners that work for apple. still going strong
 
2002-03-16 01:59:57 PM  
Get the fark out of the basement, hippies. Go smoke your I-Dope or whatever and get a job!

I may be a pothead... but i would never... EVER... do this.. or even think of doing this.. or would even have the time to do this.. jeezy chreezy!
 
2002-03-16 02:03:55 PM  
Drew, you gotta mention this next time you're on The Screen Savers. Talk about a bunch of stoners that would appreciate this 'case mod'

"We were working on a way to make an aquarium with the bong inside it so that the person taking the hit could watch the fish...."

Ladies and Gentlemen, Welcome to Loserville!

At least now it makes more sense as to why the new imac was designed that way. Damm hippies.
 
2002-03-16 02:09:00 PM  
The Mac has come full circle at last...
 
2002-03-16 02:11:12 PM  
Gotta hand it to these guys, but what the hell was that guy gibbering about after his first night of toking it?! Thats why it gets the Nerd tag ;)

Usually stoners are cool, but where would we be without an exception?

Also is this what they mean with think different?

Well, those guys just rendered this obsolete.

Hey, can ibong?
 
2002-03-16 02:57:20 PM  
Try that with your PC, punk.
 
2002-03-16 02:57:48 PM  


Best use of old hardware ever.
 
2002-03-16 03:23:44 PM  
I am so proud of the youth. what a great waste of time.
 
2002-03-16 03:38:24 PM  
Hmm.. While building my MacQuarium, I did have this idea.. but I never got around to doing it. Bastards!!

 
2002-03-16 03:49:25 PM  
That is freaken retarted, I have seen better bongs come out of my ass.
 
2002-03-16 03:52:01 PM  
Just a word to the wise.
GRAPHICS bongs = Excellent choice

GRAFFIX bongs = Terrible choice
 
2002-03-16 03:57:05 PM  
best use for a mac i have ever seen
 
2002-03-16 04:11:30 PM  
I already have a Lisaquarium,



maybe I should make a Lisa-bong with my other one. That would be way more retro than an iMac-bong.
 
2002-03-16 04:13:44 PM  
That will be one BUTT UGLY bong!
 
2002-03-16 04:20:46 PM  
How long before case-mod guys with water-cooled CPU's run some tubing for a bong through the water supply? A fully functional PC/bong.
 
2002-03-16 04:26:40 PM  
Intentionally inhaling hot smoke and ash into your lungs is about the dumbest thing a person can do. I wish it killed more quickly so people that dumb couldn't reproduce. That way evolution could continue.
 
2002-03-16 04:57:42 PM  
Nooooooo!!
 
2002-03-16 05:02:24 PM  
Wow, maybe now someone can work on converting a mac into a fully operational personal microcomputer?

Nah, scratch that... I don't think it's possible...
 
2002-03-16 05:04:40 PM  
ibong? back in the day, me and some friends could make a bong out of anything. you know those logitech 3d wingman joysticks? i have 2 - and one is now a bong.
hehe, When these guys make a fully functional water bong out of an empty cigarette pack, they'll get my respect. And not untill.
 
2002-03-16 05:23:53 PM  
the only funcational use for a mac ever
 
2002-03-16 06:04:04 PM  
Speaking of strange bongs, anyone ever smoke out of a 'Gravity Bong'? I'm not sure if is a SoCal thing only or not, but that was THE way to smoke pot in my college days...

Nowadays, I just use a nice simple bubbler.
 
2002-03-16 06:36:35 PM  
What local McDonald's do they work at when they aren't inventing such wonderful devices?
 
2002-03-16 06:38:01 PM  
heh, that's pretty funny and a good use for an old Mac.
 
2002-03-16 06:59:58 PM  
Locke,
Anybody who thinks pot is different from booze or any other form of release from reality, which humanity has been practicing, incidentally, since cave dwelling times, is a conformist square fascist self deluded self righteous pompous ass who shouldn't be allowed to reproduce.
 
2002-03-16 07:05:41 PM  
Wow, uptight anti-pot people getting together with uptight windows using mac-haters to unload on such great ingenuity. Sad, really.
 
2002-03-16 07:29:24 PM  
Gives the term "Happy Mac" a whole new meaning.
 
2002-03-16 07:42:16 PM  
TheKing, thank you! You have been cleared for reproduction.
 
2002-03-16 07:56:50 PM  
hmm.. ive got 4 really old macs i could use. I use mostly windows and linux now, but ive got an apple Lisa, a mac+ original SE (no HDFD) and a Classic 2, i still dink around with them occiasionally. No one can beat my lode runner and bonzai scores, no one :)

You idiot... That's what bongs are for... To cool down the smoke, and filter the ashes... What a dumbass...

And marijuana doesn't kill you... Certailny not like chain smoking will...
 
2002-03-16 08:34:44 PM  
If a fish lives in the bong water, will it die or just be high all of the time?
 
2002-03-16 08:45:33 PM  
Hmm... Maybe I should have done this with the old SE I had sitting around here... Nah, I don't smoke pot. And, I use a Mac. Now, most Linux guys I know, well...
 
2002-03-16 08:48:34 PM  
"We saw the aquarium made out of an imac, and thought we should put a bong in there...we were probably stoned."
Ya think?
 
2002-03-16 08:56:25 PM  
yes, yes.. we all know pot smoke is safer than any other kind of smoke and it also clears up acne, huh?
 
2002-03-16 09:15:22 PM  
I've made some cool bongs in my time. I'm gonna put pics of them up on the net soon. I'm sure you all care. Oh, ya, and that was a pretty cool idea. I admire those pot heads.
