2,400 year old bongs discovered

Quote:


Archaeologists have uncovered two 2,400-year-old pure gold ‘bongs’ that were used by Aryan tribal chiefs to smoke cannabis during ceremonies. The historic drug paraphernalia was found alongside 7lbs of other gold items when an area of land was dug up in Russia to make way for power lines. They items had been buried in a stone chamber before being concealed by a thick layer of clay.

Criminologists have since carried out tests which indicate that the thick, black residue found inside the vessels comes from the cannabis and opium which the tribal royal smoked. Experts believe the items belonged to the Scythians, a nomadic warrior race who ruled large swathes of Europe and Asia between the 9th century BC and the 4th century AD.

It means the so-called bongs could be some of the oldest in existence. Several historians say the Scythians smoked, and sometimes brewed, a strong concoction of cannabis and opium in order to alter their state of mind before heading into battle.
Famed Greek historian Herodotus, who died in 425BC, wrote: ‘Scythians used a plant to produce smoke that no Grecian vapour-bath can surpass which made them shout aloud.’ The dig also led to the discovery of golden cups, rings, and neck rings. All the items have since been cleaned and put on display in a Russian museum. Antonn Gass, from the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation, in Berlin said: ‘These are among the finest objects we know from the region.’

That would be kind of hard to fight a good fight while you're on weed and opium.  Are they sure the guys didnt save that for after a good fight?  That would make much more sense.

I'd literally give away a nut of the owners choosing to have a 2400 year old bong.

Thats right. Or left. Their choice.

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Idk, it appears to be more a chalice than a bong.
They mixed up some concoction of cannabis and opium in it and drank from it.

Yeah, I wouldn't want one of these gold fuckers anyway. I just want an old clay bong or something.
