This smoking utensil is a gravity bong for all purposese. The gravity bong is a way of smoking massive amounts of the sticky-icky whereby a bottomless jug is filled with smoke by inserting it into a larger bucket with a water depth about equal to the jug height, placing a bowl over the top of the jug
and pulling it slowly out of the water. It is pretty great (linky). This idea could be a great extension.
Have a well of depth 10m in your backyard all beautiful (linky). Fill it halfway with water. Get a 5m tall thick glass jug and lower it down into the well. Have a device that slides a bowl over onto the jug top once its at the bottom of the well. Raise the jug by cranking the well. When it gets to the top, take the bowl off the jug top and insert a hose into the jug top. Let go of the crank and let it fall. Inhale the smoke that should now be pluming out of the hose.

||That would be a waste of effort for tobacco. Why not smoke weed out of it?
||On a side-note, I once made a gravity bong with a 2-liter bottle and my fish tank. With the fish still in it, it freaked them the hell out.
||We aren't in a head shop, you don't have to pretend it's for tobacco.
||//Gravity Bong Well// ..actually, gravity don't bong very well at all, its more of a ~plop~thud~ sound.
||This idea is well worth a sip - the
ambiance of the smoking site alone
would make a very special setting for
the right situation. Just a few questions
from a seasoned BSquad water pipe
design evaluater and smoking system
||1) your Gravity Bong link shows a stem
extending down from the bowl that is a
design flaw. Wikpedia (linky) well
explains the science of this type of
device. As you describe it, the smoke is
not filtered by the water, it just creates
the pressure to move it in and out of
the glass chamber.
||2) where is the bowl when you light it?
ideally, the chamber should be filled to
the top at both ends of the smoking
cycle. This might work better if the
water level in the well was closer to the
top or the bowl was fixed at the surface
with a tube extending just to the
surface level and the chamber slid up
and down on the shaft.
||It is BSquad policy to reward any
reasonable and imaginative hemp
smoking ideas with a pastry should its
halfbaker gets the munchies. Party on
||[Cube] is right: the tube from the bowl should be long enough to extend to the bottom of the bong (in this case 5 m). Also, any volume of bong greater than two lung-fulls is basically a waste of smoke; there should be corresponding number of outlets per volume of bong, for a simultaneous multi-hoot experience. + regardless.
||I seriously expected this to be a bong based around a
gravity well in space-time, perhaps built around a
singularity, which would accelerate air to around the
speed of light for an ultra-clean burn before a swift
delivery to the lungs. The effect of getting stoned would
also be amplified by the fact that the rest of the world
would appear to be going very fast but to others you
would appear devoid of life or motion. The water well
thing is cute and more practical though.
||I am now visualiziing [GumBob], [bigsleep],
and me [Cube] sitting around //The Well//
(linky) debating the pros and cons of this
idea and other pot puffing postulations
posted here in the halfbakery. The image
gives old meaning to the word 'baked.'
||Here [cube], have a go on this croissant.
||Seems like a waste of weed (although one could argue all gravity bongs are regardless of their size), that is if you can ever light it...does this idea include 5m long matches or is that under a seperate entry.
||The lighting assembly could be included with the bowl placement assembly attached to the well lines.
