This cool and efficient percolator bong is made from high quality borosilicate glass, and stands a very impressible 52cm tall, equipped with multiple chambers and for the ultimate smooth and cool hit. To give to you the coolest and best, the smoke is split into the two side chambers, where the diffusers break it up into smaller particles to begin the cooling process. From there it is directed back through the main body of the bong to a third inline diffuser, before it enters the final chamber, where the percolator further filters and cools the smoke.

Featuring a beautiful drop in style bowl, complete with glass handle, you have a choice of six stunning coloured accents to add to the overall awesomeness of this bong. We offer: “The Original” which features blue accents, “Signor Dick” with black accents, “Meat The Loaf” features mint accents, aptly named “blizzard has cool white accents, and finally “Sideshow Rob” has green accents.

Obesity not smoking is the top cause of preventable deaths

For years we smokers have been subjected to a barrage of negative comments about the pleasure of a cigarette or cooling smoke through a bong, telling us on numerous occasions that we are not only killing ourselves, but costing the NHS billions of pounds!  The last suggestion may seem strange considering the amount of duty and tax that our pleasure brings to the treasury, but that is another matter.

Now the target is people who are overweight, as it has been reported that being obese can increase your chance of heart disease and stroke, which are the world’s biggest killers and having a bulging waistline is now the leading cause of preventable deaths, all according to a team of scientists from the Cleveland Clinic.

The data, which was collated using 2014 data on causes-of-death in the US and analysing behavioural risk factors that may have contributed to the deaths put obesity ahead of smoking and they went on to suggest that obese people lost as much as 47 per cent more life years than those who smoke. This is a big turnaround from fifteen years ago, and then tobacco would have topped the list as the leading cause of preventable deaths.

This is of course not the first time that obesity has been highlighted as the cause of preventable deaths; here in the UK levels have more than trebled in the last 30 years and, on current estimates, more than half the population could be obese by 2050, according to the NHS. Other figures that have been obtained show that in the year 2015, pharmacies in England dispensed just under half a million products for treating obesity at a cost of £13.9 million. In that year 6,000 or more people underwent obesity ops like gastric bypasses stomach stapling and gastric band maintenance in England alone!

Being overweight can cause a person to have heart problems, this is well known and it is one of the biggest killers in the world. Currently there is a war on sugar as a means of trying to get obesity levels down, but portion sizes, snacking on crisps and chocolate must play a huge part. Before we become too sanctimonious, heart disease and stroke, two of the world’s biggest killers, can be caused by both smoking as well as obesity.

The Good Book Deluxe

There are numerous examples of classy hiding places to keep valuables away from the prying eyes of “Billy the Burglar” many examples of which can be seen at our web pages. The Good Book Deluxe is another example and one which has to rank pretty near the top.

It would be hard to distinguish this from an old book, which can be either left on a coffee table or standing upright on a shelf. When you open up The Good Book Deluxe you will see all sorts of compartments for you to store your personal items, with separate compartments that are large enough to store your smoking mix, grinder and lighter, there is also a draw compartment that is great to keep anything that is fresh and pungent.

Although the bong is fitted with a female 14.5mm pinch bowl, it is simple to covert this to a dab rig with the addition of a nail or banger which can be supplied. Experienced smokers confirm that dabbing is seen as being a healthier alternative to smoking as it is essentially, vaporizing, now regarded as being the best way to consume herbs and essential oils. Vaporizing is believed to be a more healthy way to smoke because it doesn’t carry the risks associated with the combustion of materials, such as the inhalation of carbon monoxide, tar, and other harmful substances.
