There are basic instructions that comes with a new Zippo and are availble online as to how to replace a Zippo wick. The instructions are clear, but it’s much easier to see how it’s done when someone else is showing you how to do it.
With that in mind, I came across a great video on YouTube showing you just that. Hope you find this helpful!
Look, I have allergies. I used to be able to just go to the store and pick up pseudoephedrine. Now, since it’s used in the manufacturing of meth, I now am required to present my drivers license to buy it, and have my purchases monitored because god forbid I’m building up a stockpile 3 pills at a time. If there’s anything that meth dealers should be put to death for, it’s the fact that I can’t just pick up allergy medication without a full strip search. By the same extent, I’ve been thinking about going to a meth dealer just so I can buy 30 days of Sudaphedrin all at once.
Now comes this wacky story. We know that smoking anything but pipes is bad for you. Your average pipe smoker can actually jog 13 miles with a meerschaum between their teeth, but they’re just too mellow to get up from that comfortable chair. But smoking Smarties? If I have to present my goddamn license just to buy Smarties, someone is going to die.

A number of YouTube videos indicate this is not a new trend, however, some parents and health authorities are concerned about teens smoking smarties.
The video that accompanies this story was posted on August 14, 2008 which as trends go is not new. What has happened is that parents and health authorities have seen the video because the mainstream media finally caught up with the Internet.
The concerns that are being expressed are one, that it glorifies smoking and two that smoking smarties can lead to chronic conditions such as smokers’ cough, infections and choking.
The danger rests in the possibility that the person could accidentally inhale the fine powder down the wrong pipe. Sugar sitting in the lungs or nasal cavity for an extended period of time could cause an infection.
Smarties have also been snorted. I’d be more concerned about the snorting behaviour than the smoking one.

Why do teens do this, well, perhaps they are seeking that viral video that will take them to instant Internet fame,as short lived as it maybe. Perhaps they watched a video that showed them how or perhaps they saw the news which gave this trend considerable coverage or maybe they are just imitating morn or dad or that older sibling who smokes.
Teenagers will experiment and YouTube and cell phone have given them the tools to film and broadcast those experiments. A suggestion to parents, the mainstream media and health authorities check out YouTube more often, you may be surprised what people are doing.
