Now I know many have their weird pet hates, and I definately have a few of my own. However as of late, I often find that the sound of people eating is one of the few things in this world which i can't stomach, if you pardon the pun.

But there is a particular substance going around, and has been for a considerable while. A substance which brings out the worst in all people. A substance which promotes ill behaviour, a substance which is the scourge of our day to day lives, a substance which we encounter every living day.

And that substance, is chewing gum.

Someone chewing gum, much likened to a cow chewing the cud, is an absolutely repulsive behaviour, and leads to many high stress trips on public transport with others who are not familiar with "chew with your mouth closed!"

Not only this, but at every traffic light, you can look at the ground and see all the gum which has been driven into the bitumen. Or tossed aside onto your pavement. When you're a kid, whats the worst thing that can happen to your clothes or hair? You get gum in it!

All this, for an item which is consumed like food, but has no value at all?

I vote for a ban on chewing gum.

Why would we have such a scourge of society, when we could simply use breathmints, Tic Tacs and Listerine Pocket Paks?

Thoughts?

I hate chewing gum, it tastes disgusting, has a disgusting quality to it (especially when left on the floor or on a bus after some tramp has had it in their mouth and then spat it out for all to see) and is actually quite unhealthy as I think it has been proven to give you stomach ulsers.

I like the feeling of having something in my mouth. I love it.


Edit: Fuck that came out wrong.

Fresher breath, keeps me occupied, better than chewing picks, and most importantly

MOUTH

Thats what she said?......... But seriously, I like gum, it freshes breath and it does prevent boredom as mentioned above. And FYI, I do keep my mouth closed while chewing it and I ALWAYS dispose of it in the proper waste recepticle. Its always the other people that ruin it.
what a waste of a perfectly good sig.
#22
I agree with TS, the stuffs bloody horrible.

However I don't get annoyed by other people chewing it.

Worst thing about it - going to move a desk/table at school, only to put your fingers in someones gum that they 'disposed' of by sticking under said desk/table.


Edit: To make it clear, I dont mind people chewing gum, I just like them to dispose of it properly, so it doesn't crap up places.

Breath mints don't work long enough. They only keep my mouth minty for a few minutes. Gum works for hours.

Now, I tend to chew with my mouth closed. And I also never spit t out onto the ground, I always use a trash can. People who stick gum under tables and the like are scummy.


Also, why the hell can't I find Wintergreen anymore? Pisses me off.

I dislike mints and such.

I like chewing gum. I don't like people who put their chewing gum anywhere but the bin when they're done.

EDIT: ^^ and aye I'm 19 in a few months and never had anything longer than a few minute check-up at the dentists.

I wish I still got the stickers though

Also you're off topic. This thread is about Reva eating snowmen.

Not true. I'm communist. I love gum.

Chewing gum is awesome unless someone puts it in your hair.
Born to lose, live to win.
#32
I hate the stuff.

It should be banned until they come up with a way of making it biodegradable.

I'm seriously fed up of getting it stuck to my shoes when I walk down the street on hot days.
#33
I'm not 100% sure on this, but I remember hearing that students chewing gum during tests generally score better than those who don't... keeps blood flowing in your head I guess.

+1 to Wintergreen, so hard to find.
#34
I prefer mints, you don't end up with a tasteless stiff blob in your mouth after 5 minutes, and even if you are incourteous enough to spit it out in the street it'll just dissolve in the rain rather than sitting there forevermore as a testament to the disgusting slovenly attitudes of people today.

Possibly proof for gum not being good for your teeth? In my uneducated opion, it might seem that having sugar around your teeth for a long time isnt a good thing

Sugarless gum = good for your teeth.

I like gum but I hate people that spit it out on the ground, find a garbage can if you don't want it anymore.
