Arg. So anyone know any tricks to get it out? The material is sort of courdoroy-like, so it's stuck in the grooves and WOE. MY LIFE IS FULL OF WOE.

Yes, ninth level of hell, indeed. No more no more no more...

That sucks majorly! It is impossible to find a perfect pair of pants and then...GUM?! Cursed miscreants and their sticky brightly colored chewing tar!

The only thing I can think of is peanut butter. I agree with JP (Ahhhhhhh, nooooooo!!!). Worth a try?

Ok, I'm sorry but........... :rolls: :roll2: :rotfl: :rolls:

I just spit my coffee on myself!! Thanks Amaria!! :lol: :lol:

I totally understand where you are coming from, and it absolutely sucks, but it's really funny too=-))

Anyway - Take a towel (white and clean so nothing gets on the pants), get it just a tiny tiny bit wet, lay it over the pants and pat an iron on them. The heat from the iron will pull the gum off of the pants and stick it on the towel. This works for things like wax on carpets as well......

Wow! That's amazing, Jess. I never would have thought of such a thing. I'll have to keep that in mind (for when I sit on gum - 'cause it WILL HAPPEN.) :D

Yes, that is a good trick - it also works with paper bags instead of a towel. The usual grocery store type will do. :D

I KNEW there was a reason I liked this place. Thanks everyone for the tips (although I stayed clear of peanut butter after seeing the Simpsons episode where Lisa ended up having all sorts of condiments on her head and was chased by bees). Jess, thank you especially for the tip! Although it seems like you're ruining one garment for the other :rolls: I would definitely take the pants over the towel though, so no worries. I actually already froze the pants then scraped off most of it, so I'll just go ahead and try your method to get the small remaining bits. :D

Okay, I'm a little upset right now. There seems to be a difference in programming on the Discovery Channel between the US and the UK. There are now two shows that I very much wanted to see but alas they won't be shown here. First there was Mongrel Nation hosted by Eddie Izzard and now Warrior Women hosted by Lucy Lawless (I know, I know it's Xena. I have an affinity for Kiwis, what can I say. At least it's not TJ Hooker. )

You would think they would release them on DVD but nooooooo. They are doing this to torture me I know it. Dang you Discovery Channel! :thump:

Moose, *cough*bittorrent?*cough*

I would like to rant for just a brief moment about the fact that I can't sleep solidly through the night these days and the fact that the scale has moved in the wrong direction the past few days for no sane reason. So now I'm feeling quite grumpy today.

I can relate with the scale problem, Jones. :x All I can say is, eh? What? How'd that happen? And some other less polite things.
Sorry to hear about the sleeping. :( They may be related. Lack of a proper nights sleep can effect weight. I know, that's really helpful, right?

Here, I'll lend you some of my :zzz:

No luck though.

And I hope you a feeling better today. :goodman:

Thanks Moosey. Sorry you didn't have any luck finding the programs.
