“You know how subatomic particles don’t obey physical laws? They act according to chance, chaos, coincidence. They run into each other in the middle of the universe somewhere, and bang! Energy! That’s the great thing about the universe. It’s unpredictable. That’s why it’s so much fun.”—
For bongs, pour some rubbing alcohol in the chamber and add generous amounts of salt. Then swirl the solution around until all the resin has been loosened or dissolved and rinse it out with warm water. For pipes and bubblers, just get a zip lock baggy and pour some rubbing alcohol and salt in it. Then put your pipe in the bag and shake vigorously. Sometimes the resin in my pipe gets so thick, I will just let it sit overnight in the bag to let the solution soak in. After the resin is broken up, just rinse the pipe with warm water. If there is still some resin remaining, just repeat the process until it is gone. Just let it dry and it will taste and hit like a brand new piece.
I think that the magical about concerts, having sex, and skydiving (aside from the obvious factors like the music, orgasms, and the adrenaline rush) is that those who participate in these activities are completely and utterly immersed in the moment. There is no dwelling on the past, no stressing about the future; just living and breathing and absorbing every detail about the surrounding environment. The smells, the sights, the tastes, the touches and the sounds become rich and colourful and alive, as do you when you experience them.
What better way is there to live than in the present moment? To acknowledge and appreciate your current situation with open eyes and an open heart? Such liberation, such life.
