    Question Sticking gum to objects

    I'm sure everyone has done this at one time:

    You've touched gum stuck to the underside of a desk.


    Who does this? Why not throw it away?

    It seems less prevalent now than even a decade ago, but it still happens.

    Why? So gross.

    My guess is that deep down, some retards just find that chewing gums ability to defy gravity by means of stickiness enthralling.

    I rarely chew gum and I always clean up after my garbage... So no. I couldn't understand why people stick gum under desks/tables/chairs etc. Who do you expect to remove the plasticy mess? It's gross.

    Gum, no. But I used to put banana peels in between bus seats when I was little. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Yup. Once was enough, I now make sure not to stick my hands anywhere they're not supposed to be sticked.

    All I can think of is that once gum and teeth part, horrible chemical reactions occur which make the gum so toxic to touch that it burns, burns, BURNS. The poor innocent and soft hands that haven't touched anything but a gumwrapper their entire lives cannot handle the pressure. So, since the trash can is too far away to get up and walk there, the only solution is to get rid of it and stick it under a nearest piece of furniture or throw it on the ground so that the little forsaken piece of gum can find a new friend such as someone's hand or foot.

    Oh, cool, this reminds me that I haven't had a gum in 5 years. I used to live on the stuff, I wonder what happened, I must have found more substantial things to chew on.

    I don't stick my hands in places where I can't see them.

    I'm sorry, but the poll options are terribly biased toward those who do not stick gum to objects.
