    If this gum catches on, we`ll lose part of our culture, you know the part where we are to lazy to find a garbage can.

    some of you might not understand how great this is...but at college, working for the grounds department, sometimes I got the lovely job of scraping gum off the sidewalk. Let me tell you, it is NOT fun. Not only do you get blisters from scraping, but you can scrape your knuckles on the concrete. And that`s not even mentioning the doushbag comments you get from some passersby. It was probably the worst job on campus, and all because people were too lazy to keep gum in their mouth and discard it in one of the many trashcans around campus.

    Awesome! I stepped in gum twice in the last two days, once on my way to choir and once leaving choir. We have to walk outside to get there and everyone always throws their gum on the concrete.

    Here`s an idea... STOP CHEWING GUM in the first place!! It`s gross and widens your jaw so you always look rude while talking.

    the way they say this gum works it dissolves with water. So what are we not supposed to chew it but squeeze it between our hands?
    i`m not going to look back at this topic so whatever

    Ah this reminds me of that time in my biology class when the teacher forced all of us to get on the floor with thses little metal things and scrape 40 years of gum buildup off the bottom of all the desks. and one kid got end to the principal for refusing to do it but the principal didn`t care.

    1# One problem at the time

    2# This is accualy a problem, bakteria and "disseases" do tend to grown on gum wich has been laying on the ground, and they do get airborn and make people sick

    3# if you think the money could have been spent bether, why didnt you do anything?
    you probably dont do S*** but sitting at home drinking f*** cofee, reading the new paper and go: those poor people!(or something), and what do you do? NOTHING!!!
    maybe you donate 20 bucks to some charity thingy, and think you have don the world a favour... well what a hell of a favor, those 20 bucks just went into the pockets of some dude whos gonna use them for drugs, becous no one can help that person!

    F*** YOU ALL IN THE ARSE !!!!!11!!!!111!!!!

    *phew* atleast I got that out of my system...

    fun fakt
    (1/11 of all charity stuff is fake or frouds!)

    GypsyCassie...We are ALL glad to hear about where you get your jizz....Is this your way of bringing up being engaged?....

    Good in theory....People with braces could enjoy gum without the downside of sticking....Taste..might be an issue though.
