Burn Yourself with Big Red Gum

This is a neat trick that will cause severe pain, and a red mark. You don't really need much for this, a stick of Big Red, some saliva, and a high tolerance to pain.
You'll need:
-A stick of Big Red Brand chewing gum
-The wrapper from the gum

Step 1: Unwrap the gum

Very easy, simply unfold the tabs on the wrapper and remove the stick of gum

Step 2: Chew the gum

Take the stick of gum you removed from the wrapper (Don't place the wrapper in your mouth), place it in your mouth, and chew. Don't do this in any other order no matter how funny it may seem.

Step 5: It's gonna hurt

It won't hurt right away. Give it about 30 seconds.

Use it how ever you see fit, but remember, it's only funny when it hurts your friend, not you.

seabananers4 years ago

And you discovered this how exactly?

I have trouble with this step. Every time when I try to unfold the wrapper the gum falls on the bathroom floor. What do I do? Should I fashion a netting system out of toilet paper? That way after it falls, if I'm lucky, the gum will land safely in the netting system. You should really have been more descriptive with your instructions.
i think you need some help.
Why is this an issue?
GreenDay (author)  mintybreath5 years ago
The netting system could work, but in the long run it might hurt you. My theory is that if you're stupid enough to not open a peice of gum, you'll forget to take it off your forehead and get a serious chemical burn and come sue me. So you're responsible for your own fate.
does this work with any gum?

 could you also use a winter fresh wrapper or would it do the opposite?

i ahvent seen big red chewy here in auz
munchman binnie6 years ago
I live in victoria and it is avaliable at target, usually near the registers. It costs about $3
thatsa rip at walmart its like 69 cents for a small pack
At Walmart where I live a 3 pack of 5 gum is 99 cents
its a super strong cinnamon gum try it with something similar. Also you can do something very very funny with salt and an ice cube, you bet your friends that you can keep your ice cube on your arm longer. you put salt on your forearm and on his then set an ice cube on there to see who can last the longest. PS it leaves a mark for a few years......
yea that hurts >> i tryed it as soon as i read it i lasted less than a minute b4 it burned i didnt leave it too long How does this happen the salt expands in water > expanion causes heat > burns you or is it a faster way to get frostbyte
Bartboy binnie6 years ago
Salt make ice 10 degrees C colder
no its not a faster way to get frost bite. cuz in salt thers some sort of radiation and whe its with the ice its like makes it wors. thats what my step dad told me he workd in a necleer plant place thingy . so like ya a. lol.'
uhm...are you serious?....there's some correction to be done here. It burns because the presence of salt lowers the freezing temperature of water, and the presence of a (relatively) giant block of ice lowers the temperature of the ice touching the salt......basically, it gets really really cold. Colder than normal ice. The effect is like holding something much colder than ice on your arm, or wherever. That being said, yes, it is a faster way to get frostbite, and no offense, but did your stepdad work at like...Chernobyl? Something's wrong with that, you might want to correct him.. Unrelated, i hear if you turn a can of compressed air upside down and shoot yourself in the eye with it, it gives you superpowers...

I heart superpowers.
<3 thats Shift+comma and the number 3. now you know how to make a real heart so you don't have to spell it out.
GreenDay (author)  James (pseudo-geek)6 years ago
I <3 not using stupid msn emoticons, but you're right, spelling out heart looks funny.
Tomo27 GreenDay6 years ago
It's good to know some people are actually helpful, but yeah, I knew that. I sorta meant for it to sound odd?
GreenDay (author)  Gloom6 years ago
I just tried that, and all I got was a trip to the hospital... On a lighter note, me and my friends used to freeze flies with an upside down of compressed "air" (nitrogen I think). It was oddly amusing...
actually hes right about salt putting off radiation. hes wrong about that being why it burns your arm. salt only puts off TINY amounts of radiation, and then only alpha rays, not beta and gamma as well.
no man it is a faster way to get frostbite. it is ice - it is not going to burn you no matter how much salt you put on it.

Did they teach science at your school?
