I used to beleive when i was really little, before i could blow bubbles with bubblegum, that only adults could blow bubbles. I thought that they had a special thing in their mouth that blew air into the gum and shaped it into a bubble!
I used to belive that if you swallowed gum then it will stick to your butt and your butt will stick together which will not let you poop! I always used to swallow my gum and my mom told me that so I wont choke!
I used to believe it took 7 years to digest swallowed gum. If that was really the case then I would have over 8,000 pieces of gum wadded up inside of me. 3 pieces a day x 7 days a week x 52 weeks in a year x 7 years really adds up. It is gross that I swallow that much but it is just a habit. Now I think I believe that the gum swallowing has saved me from many accidents and health problems. They will probably find someday that it is actually good for you!!!!!
My parents used to tell me when I was about 5 that if I ate bubblegum and swallowed it that it would stay there for seven years.
They also told me that if I ate the watermelon seeds that in about a couple of years I would have a watermelon growing in my tummy.
When I was young my grandad told me that chewing gum was made from the soles of Native Americans feet. I believed him!
When I was really small, I had this little friend who thought that Starburst was gum. She'd put a piece in her mouth and chew it for a few seconds and then take it out and give it to her mom. I was only three, but I thought, "Gosh, this girl is dumb." She thought I was going to die from swallowing it.
i used 2 belive dat chewing gum was rubber!!! lol how dumb. im still not sure, so i try to nvr eat it.
I swallowed gum once when I was little, and I told my dad about it so he'd give me another piece. He told me that when I tried to poop later, I'd blow a bubble out my butt! I totally believed him! Now I tell my friends' kids the same thing, and they swallow it on purpose to see if it's true. :-) Hee hee!
i was sitting in my P.E lesson and a girl started getting told off for chewing gum. immediately i realised that i was chewing gum too, and as i didnt want to get told off, i decided to swallow my gum. my friend then turned to me and said: "dont swallow your chewing gum, it will rap around your heart." to this day, whenever i think about that i laugh.
I used to believe that if I swallowed too many wads of gum, they would stay in my stomach and one day they would all stick together and form a big ball and then it would expload in me and i would die. i was terrified of gum until i was 7!
my older bro told me that if i blew bubbles bigger than my head they would eat me because they got so big and that stoped me from evan trying to blow bubbles
as a little kid, i was really good at blowing bubbles as big as my head and blowing a bubble inside a bubble and stuff like that. my older cousin got so fed up with all the popping noises i was making (or maybe it was she couldnt blow a bubble to save her life and she got jealous) she told me that little people thrive inside the bubbles i blow and every time i pop a bubble they can escape. she told me that they all meet in some deserted cave in mexico and that once enough bubbles have popped and there are enough of them, they will slaughter every person in the whole world. i still kept blowing bubbles though, just making sure to slap my hands closed on the air my bubbles popped in to kill all the little "people"...
I was scared to death about swallowing my chewing gum since I thought it would turn into a seed in my stomach and eventually a huge tree would grow out my mouth and I wouldn't be able to close my mouth.
I used to see the commercials for Juicy Fruit gum that advertised "the taste will really move you." Finally I convinced my mom to buy this gum for me and as I stood completely still in the kitchen, I popped in a piece of gum, and waited for the gum to move me. Needless to say, I was standing still awhile.
My older sister used to trick us a lot. One day she told us she could turn paper into chewing gum. She gave me a little piece of paper to chew. Every now and then, she'd check to see if it was ready, and add a bit of gum to it, till it was mostly all gum. I swallowed it whole. Not the gum, the trick!
I thought you could die from chewing gum while in the shower.
When I was younger I always swallowed my gum until one day I did it while with my grandmother. She told me that if I continue to do that I will blow one BIG bubble out my bottom end when I would "pass gas" as she called it. Now I have my own child and I tell him the same thing !
When I was little, my mom would tell us that chewing gum helped with car-sickness, just to shut us up in the car and such. It was only in my early twenties that I found out it was all a lie. What gets me is that to this day, whenever I feel carsick, my first thought is to get some gum!
i used to believe some even say i still do but they don't know do they!! that if i chewed chewing gum for a hard core 162 days i'd actually turn into a hubba bubba! i know tell me about it life on the shelves in the corner shop sure is strenuous.
When i was little i thought that if you were drinking and chewing gum at the same time you would swallow your gum and die
