Second semester freshman year, I was in my friend’s two-room double when, from the inside room, we heard a loud “CRASH!” followed by uncontrollable sobbing. After the crying had died down a bit, we found out that her roommate had broken her beautiful $150 glass water pipe. There was no consoling the girl.
To avoid such heartbreak, there’s Pfwoot, the world’s first (and only?) inflatable water pipe. Yeah, inflatable. It folds down to the size of a cigarette pack, which I’d imagine to be convenient for you traveling ones, and though I have no idea how to clean the thing, at $20, it’s worth it just for the novelty of owning an inflatable bright orange bong. You can buy it at Compact Impact.
