I chose Option 3.

The Talking Point

The nation's latest batch of politicians include internet comedians, an alleged serial killer, and a highly trained Cat.

Alanis Star was reclassified from a Left-wing Utopia to a Scandinavian Liberal Paradise.

Alanis Star's Political Freedoms fell from Superb to Below Average.

Still a Democratic Socialist at heart.

I once roleplayed Singapore so hard that I turned into a Psychotic Dictatorship.

That was funny.

Personally gum hasn't been affecting my life very much. If anything there's a lucrative black market in my school for gum going on right now, and when I bring gum back from Malaysia, never gets confiscated by the officers at customs. Personally I feel that Singaporeans should emulate the Taiwanese and Japanese when it comes to cleaniness. I guess what you mean by the symbolic banning on gum is the same as why America refuses to criminalize gun possession despite all those shooting cases?

So the only reason why you don't wanna see the ban lifted is because it would cut back your extra pocket money. ; )

The resistance against a ban of guns is partially symbolic but I think it would also have a huge real impact on the society and industry.
In contrast to that, Singaporeans don't care if chewing gum is banned since they can chew anyway, and/or for many (young) Singaporeans chewing never became a habit/desire anyway. (Not sure how the people reacted to the ban back then?).
So, looking as an outsider at Singapore, the chewing gum ban gives the impression of a super authoritarian government that can do what ever it likes to do, banning stupid, harmless things overnight for almost no reason, taking away the freedom of the people. (When you live here it doesn't feel like that though).
Lifting the ban would give a signal to the people in Singapore like 'hey, actually you Singaporean people can also have chewing gum like all other people on this planet because you are civilized enough now. We trust you.'

The gum thing is... kinda weird. You can't sell it here, but you can still eat it with little to no problem. So it's not exactly a ban on consumption, but just on the sales. I think because if you are allowed to sell it, the problem will get bigger (more gum = more dirty places, presumably).
To side track a bit, we should totally make biodegradable chewing gum that will decompose after 5 days. Like after you've chewed it, some chemical triggered it and degrade it.

I'm surprised that gums aren't biodegradable yet?

Why can't gamblers just invest in the stock market? There's plenty of risk-taking too.

Indeed, the standard gum isn't degradable. While strangely in some rare cases some chewing standard gums suddenly 'powderized' in my mouth?! Pretty unexpected and disgusting.

Has it ever happened to any one?

I heard of people that really are addicted to gambling machines. At least when I was a kid. Quite hard to imagine for me though, never found it interesting.

Zheng Yi Sao

Nope, but throughout my life, I have swallowed 2-3 gums, some toothpaste, and even some Listerine. I even managed to take 6 x Vitamin C 500 mg (I got 4998 % of Daily Requirement on that day) tablets at one point. And all of this happened WHEN I WAS A MERE 8-10 YEARS OLD. How am I still alive is a mystery.

Hmm, for the gambling machines? Actually, to be honest, I don't mind spending a hundred or less on a jackpot machine (or blackjack); I can't play poker. Like one comment I saw on (6 realities of casinos; they're more disgusting than you think*), if I started working, I might set aside $50 per month as a gambling fund.

- If I got more than $50 from the winnings, I'll keep the extra for my own usage.
- If I lost the $50, well, it's pleasure, and I didn't bet large, so all is well. For the future me, DO NOT TOP UP once you lose the $50. You get $50/mth to play, that's it.

Yep. That's my plan, anyway. Small doses are fine, but it isn't healthy if one keeps spending hundreds or thousands and losing them.

* Not sure about MBS, but the casinos in, say, Las Vegas, are disgusting. Let's just say that the customers lose track of time, and some don't bother to go to the toilet for... relief. And that the chairs need to be sent for deep-cleaning now and then.

On gambling...Horse Sense is that quality that horses have that keeps them from betting on what people will do. :P
