    The modern Hookah trend was certainly starting when I was at school in 05-07 and there was a significant subset of people at university who were using hookahs in 2010. I went to a private school and my friends weren't exactly risk takers so it must have been mainstream well before then.

    I never got involved myself, but there was definitely a trend for people on the edge of the UK equivalent of the hipster sub-culture to smoke hookah. In fact I would say it was the thing that crossed over from the proto hipster culture into mainstream posh culture as well as mainstream culture.

    Loads of house parties featured a room with a hookah in it and lots of people had them.

    I doesn't surprise me that people are going to hookah bars and demanding they conform to western standards given the ubiquity of hookah pipes over the last 6 years.

    Hookahs and hookah bars are pretty common/popular here too. I remember many times walking through downtown and having to stop so a friend of mine could chat with a girl he liked who worked at a hookah bar. It would take forever and I'd end up joking around with the security guy about how hopeless my friend was being.

    Wow, I thought it was only popular here. But it's not exactly a trend it's been around for ages, before I was born even.

    Also, the Egyptian name for it is Shisha, the Lebanese/Syrian name is Hookah.

    Its always been called shisha amongst people I've known, but I've also heard them called hookah pipes or hubble bubble pipes.

    Shisha is by far the most common name for them in England. Probably something to do with lots of English people holidaying in Sharm el Sheikh.

    It's also the most common name to call it in Spain, mainly among youngsters. Older people use to call it narghile or even "cachimba".
    The finest middle east-style restaurants and coffee houses used to have shishas for their customers. But, since tobacco has been banned from almost everywhere and you only can smoke in the street or at home, I don't know if they still offer you a hookah to share and chat .

    Personaly, I may have whipped out my dick and pissed on her. Maybe.
    technically she assaulted him as well, assault: figurative attack or bombard (someone or the senses) with something undesirable or unpleasant. You pissing on her would have counted as sexual assault.

    I think you guys completely missed my point, mainly due to the bad way I wrote my post. I think hookahs are cool as ****. Also I appreciate the offer for me to try hookah, I've tried it but I'd gladly accept the generosity.

    I meant to say; if she was so against people who speak English with one of those 'dark skinned' accents (i.e. racist as ****) then why was she trying to go into this establishment, owned by the Egyptian Americans?

    worst bit is, even if she had slapped or punched him, and that was his response, he'd still, here in the states, likely be looking at jail time without so much as a glance askance at her. Men here, it seems, are obliged to put up with quite a bit of what may constitute 'assault' from women, just because the legal system (or, rather, it's enforcers and judges, et al) seem to think that we should take it.
