What you will need:
1 Light Bulb
3 TBSP’s of salt
1 pointy knife
1 Cheap Pen (hollowed out)
1 butane/propane torch (optional)
So you got your shit and your all happy, but since you’re a crack head you’ve probably broken or misplaced all your pipes, and, it is most likely 3 in the morning no headshops are open. Anyways, read on…
Step 1- Obtain a light bulb, a regular old light bulb, nothing fancy…no clear ones either.
Step 2- Take the pointy knife and and pry of the brass metal ring attached to the dark colored glass at the base of the bulb, shave off the little soldered button too.
Step 3- Again take the pointy knife and starting from the center- use a twisting motion to grind the dark colored glass from the base (the cheap glass crumbles easily).
Ok with the glass gone it should look like this. Some shit colored glue and the filament glass.
Step 3.5– There is a bit of glass that holds the filament, which is attached via the glue; break this by carefully tapping this with the knife and pull out the filament.
Get the salt
Step 4- Pour in 1 TBSP or whatever into the bulb.
Step 5- Put your thumb over the open end of the bulb and agitate the salt until it has cleaned off all the chemicals on the inside of the glass. (We wouldn’t want to be smoking any dangerous chemicals now would we?)
Step 6- Pour out the salt and repeat steps 4 & 5 a few more times.
Step 7- Add a dash of water to rinse the thing out, when dry use the pen as a mouthpiece.
Optional extra credit assignment:
Yea, so when you smoke with a pen as shown above its like taking a hit off a pipe and not closing off the carb, very unfulfilling wasteful hit.
Below would be a sort of deluxe model light bulb pipe:
Follow steps 1-7 above.
Preheat the bulb on the stove, concentrating on one area.
Take your torch and heat a [small spot]<–Important, until it is red hot, while it is hot blow into the bulb so that you blow out a small hole. DO NOT BREATHE IN WHILE DOING THIS, YOU WILL BREATHE IN HOT AIR AND FUCK YOURSELF UP!
The blown out area should look like this.
Massage the area with the torch and the blown out area should sink back in leaving a nice hole intact.
