Apparently it's a very effective laxative (with drastic results) if ingested orally.
That's a useful piece of information for people who don't know their eyeball from their gob!
It's an easy mistake to make, giraffe...
I'm one of those odd people who is incapable of putting their contact lenses (and eye drops etc.) in without their mouth wide open.
I have no idea why I do this.
Manashee - I pop over to Personal - and you provide another music link!
Into The Great Wide Open:
Ba, ha, ha, ha! I shall think of this every time I put my lenses in.
Cracking tune though.
As is eating too many Sainsbury's sugar-free marshmallows. They are evil.
You dont have to answer this ....... perhaps you shouldn't
do you have personal experience of these effects ......
did you find out the hard way ...... or loose way?
rosie, I think it's the sorbitol (artificial sweetener) that produces this unfortunate effect. If you eat too many Smints it does the same, hence the warning on the box!
Alenga, thankfully no personal experience - it came up (don't ask why) in conversation with a friend who knows a lot of air hostesses.
I read the warning on the bottom of the bag "too late".
You'll not be doing that again, then.
It does make you wonder how these things are discovered.
Some daft student probably drank a bottle for a bet and the rest (as they say) is history.
I've gone right off marshmallows now I have discovered they can trap you in the house for 24 hours.
Your tongue is very sensitive and receives millions of sensory messages a lot of the time - so holding your mouth open serves to reduce those messages to the brain leaving you a greater ability to process the fine motor actions necessary for such a delicate operation.
It also helps to stretch your face a bit so you can open your eyes that bit wider.
Or so I've been told
Have you seen the movie Wedding Crashers? One of the heroes disarms a competitor for the attentions of a lady by emptying a bottle of eyedrops in his drink. He spends the whole night wracked by stomach pain and I think vomiting as well as diarrhoea. I always wondered if it's true.
