    This thread amuses me!

    I was a major gum sticker into college. I very easily could've wrapped the gum into a piece of paper or tucked it between my teeth and cheeks but I didn't. I had no good reason for this habit, because I really didn't think about it. I know I liked to add to the gum that was already under desks and make the gum lobs even bigger. It was my form of vandalism, and yeah it was gross.

    Also, I'm not particular grossed out when I touch gum stuck to chairs and whatnot.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    ugh... the very THOUGHT of touching gum stuck somewhere creeps me out!

    there was an area under the bleachers in the gym in high school where everyone stuck their gum on the walls... it smelled so horrible that I can distinctly recall that smell to this day... it smelled like stale dog drool or something *shudders*

    If there's a trash can, the gum goes there. If there isn't a trash can I swallow it

    I tried gum when I was six. I didn't like it.

    Like any other easily conditionable human, I haven't had gum since. Most gum smells make me nauseous. I'm not quite sure if my dislike caused the nausea or vice versa.
    If a deaf INFP falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

    Me too!

    Once a heel broke on my shoe - temporary fix: GUM!

    Stick a love note on the bf's door, no tack - GUM!

    The clasp on my purse broke - GUM!

    Broke the head off a porcelean doll in my house - GUM! (as a kid though)

    I fell in love with gum the first time I stuck it to a few straws (my other love) and fished out something that I dropped in a sewer grate.

    I love gum.

    But if others want a gum free existence, try Singapore.

    i don't stick gum to things, but i don't mind it when it is stuck.
    i like gum-walls, when a wall is covered in gum. those are pretty cool.

    I voted no, but this post reminded me of this lovely, infamous Gum Wall attached to the boarding platform of a rollercoaster at this amusement park near my old house.

    (I love how I was able to find a photograph of this in Google.)


    Ok, it's not as epic as the post above mine.. but- it used to be!
    I think they make the staff try to clean it off every couple yrs.

    Decades of people waiting in line..
    As a child, I looked forward to the rollercoaster ride,
    but also to contributing to the Great Wall.
