It was not intended to be the least bit personal, I just find it distracting -- just like Banana's avatar. But then I have trouble chewing gum and walking at the same time... :wink:

Chewing gum is bad for your stomach lining, Mary!

I'd agree when there are large photos involved

yep, and also there's no need to quote an entire post when just responding to one or two particular points. the delete button is there for a reason...

Oh, it's Lunkhead now, is it? Well, missy!!!!


You chew, you chew - your tummy gets ready for food and creates acid it can break down . . . chew, chew, acid, acid - oops - nothing coming, so there's nothing left bar the stomach lining . . .

Your mother would be shocked!

(On a serious note, isn't it great not to have gum stuck to your shoes . . . not worrying about lifting a table or chairs . . . no gum sticking anywhere . . .)

and it's quite sickening going to another country and seeing old chewing gum on the side walk and the girls chewing like cows...

I heard that one of the potential deal breakers with the free trade agreement with America was chewing gum. The Americans wanted Singapore to start selling it & Singapore didn't want it. The compromise was sugar free gum & nicotine gum being available from the chemists.

About a year ago I was given a leaflet in guardian promoting sugar free gum, I was very surprised. So I believe you can get it but it is 'over the counter' so to speak.

but shhhh don't tell anyone 8)

I heard from a local when they started selling it here last year that you have to give the Chemist your id no. or passport no. and the chemist writes it down in a book.

Is this done to make it harded to buy or could it possibly be an easier way for forensic scientists to trace your DNA if found on the side walk? :wink:
