A blunt. Comes from philly where the cheapest cigars to roll blunts with weren't Philly's but instead White Owls. Over time, "roll an owl" morphed to "roll an el" and then "smoke an el".

El = "The" in arabic. This word can be used in front of any word to really emphasize the word. It is a lot of fun to add an "el" in front of a word. Arab's around the world are use this frequently.

EL is an ancient measure of length, reaching (at least in the Netherlands) approximately 69.4 cm. The measure was local, in every major commercial center, established to differences occurred:

Amsterdam el 68.8 cm
Brabant el 69.2 cm or 16 waists
Delfsche el 68.2 cm
The Hague or ordinary el 69.4 cm
Goesche el 69 cm
Twente el 58.7 cm
Workumer or Frisian El 70.9 cm

The name is derived from the length of the forearm, the ulna. One could thus in a simple way measure lengths.

In connection with the levying of excise duty, The Hague el became the national standard in 1725.

When introducing the Dutch metric system in 1820, the El equated to one meter.

The Law of April 7, 1869 (Gazette No. 1957) were former names, including el abolished and replaced by the now customary terms. In the period 1820-1870 was a El of 10 palms (decimetres) or 100 inches (centimeters) or 1000 lines (millimeters).

El in the Bible and the Hadith books (ziraa) discussed, for example, the dimensions of the ark, is approximately 52 cm.
You can measure your el from the tip of the elbow to the top of your pink!!

The Chicago elevated rail system and the biggest piece of junk in the world. Trains are slow, stops are located two blocks apart, trains stop in the middle of the track for no apparent reason and stay there for 5 minutes, stations are old, dirty and disgunting, the fare keeps going up, every once in a while trains crash. There are about 5 stops on different lines with the name "Western" and this could lead to confusion. The stop called "Central" is nowhere near Chicago's downtown. Many of the stations are elevated and don't have stair or escalator access, causing you to have to walk a shitload of steps. Luckily, the crappiness of the system means trains are rarely, if ever, overcrowded.
Tear down that piece of shit and bury it underground, where I at least don't have to look it at it on my way to work.
