I love them. I usually eat them when I'm bored or nervous.

Do you know chewing gums was a crime in Singapore? Now they lifted it after 12 years banning of chewing gums. However it’s only for registered users and people who break the rules will be fined and go to jail. It sounds stupid laws to me.

A law for not chewing gums? This is just too much like our Madame Nhu made a law that no one could dance during her time. I think I'm hearing cuckooooooooooooooooooooooo train is coming... :roll:

I heard somewhere that chewing gums make the contrary effect: you inhale too much air, thus gaining weight. I don't know if that's true, though.

I meant is that there are some girls who are afraid that eating would make them gain weight; therefore, they choose to chew gums. Gums don't contain much calories. Only about 5-15 calories and no fats. After a while this habit is considered as a psychological disorder, for a girl is being too obsessed with her body figure; she could literally damage it by choosing gums as her priority nutrients. I've seen some girls chew gums all day and eat nothing. It's sick!

When little, I used to love them but once I had a nightmare about them, I don't eat them often.
I fell asleep and I forgot to spit it out. Then I dreamed that I was choking with it. It was horrible.
I think my parents were glad that I stopped chewing them because my chew gums were stuck everywhere. I'd leave them under the table, on one side of my plate, under my bed, etc. :oops:

During my two last years in high school, my class timetable was from 8am to 2:30pm. There was a time when I used to have a chewing gum right before starting the class at 8 and didn't throw it away until I went home at 2:30.

Gross or what? :D

Kind of.
Sometimes I'd start chewing gum in the morning and when it was lunch time, I'd put it on my side of my plate and when I was done eating, I'd put it into my mouth again.
Grosser??
I guess I just wanted to eat only one piece of gum per day and make them last longer. :oops:

I saw some girls in my high school shared their gums together, and I mean as in one girl was chewing it and then spit it out for another girl to chew.
