They explained to me that "people" - I use the term loosely here - like you break off the tops of spark plugs and use the porcelain tubes to smoke crack. As an engineer and former MacGyver fan, in a way I think this is kind of cool. But then I remember that I just paid $100 for YOUR crackpipes, and I get angry again.
He should be like the crackheads here downtown...buy or steal a nip bottle...drink its contents, and fancy it into a nice reusable crack pipe...very cost effective. He could always go the cheap way and find an empty nip bottle and make a free pipe...Great post. I wouldn't doubt the crackhead would sell the pipe for more dope though.
