Would that be an eighth-bit game controller?

DslainteC: Would that be an eighth-bit game controller?

Nice one.

best home made "appliance" I ever saw was made by a friend in college from one of those ROTC athletic sippy cup things that the uniformed guys were giving away.

i dont see where you would put the water.

not a bong. it's just a pipe. a pipe that melts when your bowl gets too hot.

I like it, if it doesn't start just blow on it. That usually works for me.

IF it were a bong, they probably gutted the inside and that's where they put a tiny amount of water and then tilt the controller so the stem catches the water.

But it probably isn't, since it makes more sense as a plain old pipe.

Not that I really know about these things. I just used to like smoking tobacco out of non-traditional devices.

Dude, for me, that's like using pages out of the Bible for toilet paper.

I remember once "a friend of mine" made a bong out of an old HE-MAN thermos. That "friend" gave it to another "friend" and that guy lost it, of course...

It was pretty "sweet."

The melted styrene really gives it a pop.

GASP! That's sacrilege wasting perfectly good rolling papers like that.

Fail. NES controllers are way too small to make a half decent bong, unless maybe you made it so the bowl comes out the left side. Even then it would be a dangerous bong to use because it would tip over and spill really easily. That being said, I also agree with dragonchild, the NES controller was a work of art. I have several from over 20 years ago and they still work as well as the day they were purchased, despite taking many vicious beatings over the past 25 years from dogs tripping over the cord and stupid friends who get cranky when they lose and can't keep the controller in their hands.

I'd like to see someone make a bong out of an old Atari joystick. Now that would look cool and work well.

I am firmly in the "it is not a bong, it is a pipe" camp.

Who says stoners are a bunch of lazy do nothings? Give us some weed and nothing to smoke it out of and we become a damn innovative group!

Obviously FAIL. It's a pipe not a bong and the dude still farked it up so it didn't even work.

This is not news! Boy fails to make a crappy pipe from a game controller work ... has stereo-typical crappy scratched up stoner coffee table.

Yup, the lightbulb vaporizer, and the 2/3 liter gravity bong are my favorites.

Back in my poor youth days I made bongs out of shampoo bottles, a piece of rabbit ear antenna and a socket. It worked great. Then I discovered the Pyrex beakers et al in science class.

FTA "It doesn't work, unfortunately"

Ga Tech students built the better gravity bong. Complete with dual gate valves to prevent having to remove tinfoil.

A heat resistant baby bottle and a thimble was one of my favorite bongs. I also had a pipe made out of one of those brass garden hose nozzles. Thimbles make great bowls.

The most extravagant piece of paraphernalia our group made was a two-man steamroller made out of a six foot long cardboard tube. Each person would have to hit it from either end, and a third person had to light it.

Wait, they used real valves... And tin foil? Someone's doing it wrong.

If you want to talk about bongs you need to see these (pops)

It amazes me how much my resourcefulness is increased when I want to smoke.

it was always fun to watch the local skids come to the appliance store to buy stuff from the plumbing department. if they got the wrong type of fittings for their bongs they were poisoning themselves slowly. it's win-win!
 
2008-10-02 02:09:06 PM  
made a waterfall out of a five gallon gas can. (never used for gas and washed thoroughly). Wow that was alot of smoke. also may not have washed it well enough.
 
2008-10-02 02:27:34 PM  
I've only made a couple.

1 out of one of those Heinee Baby-Keg things.

And another from my old PS2 Guitar Hero controller.

Don't forget the classic bear shaped honey bottle. There are also soda can pipes, wood shop pipes, toilet paper tubes wrapped with foil. You would store them all in the purple Crown Royal bag with the gold pull string.

Of course. I've used a couple before but never made one. I had a buddy who used the honey bear as his utensil of choice.

I've rolled a joint with pages from the Bible. They're usually quite thin so they work very well in a pinch.
