When I'm done using a styrofoam cup, I...

    What is up with Styrofoam cups? I've never seen someone simply throw one out. Without fail, before ending up in the garbage, a Styrofoam cup will be chewed, shaped, torn, etc. What is with this phenomenon?

    I collect them, I stick them in the ground in the hope they will turn into diamonds within 50,000 years so my ancestors remember me.

    I like to cut out the bottom and put it back in the stack and watch another person try to fill it. :D

    plastic are at least recyclable... Styrofoam is just a menace of pollution... though the best thing would simply be to wash ur damn glasses, or at least get paper cups

    When I have a Styrofoam cup I do tend to pick apart the rim, sometimes. I honestly don't know I'm doing it. (I also have a twichy foot, it bounces without my being aware of it, until someone leans over and puts their hand on my knee to make it stop).

    That said, I usually use paper cups or ceramic ones. (Roll up the rim to win!!!)

    Personally, I don't drink out of anything other than proper cups and glasses. I just hate the feel of plastic or styrofoam in my mouth.

    I reenact the scene in Jaws when Richard Dreyfus stares down Robert Shaw and then crushes his Stryrofoam cup. But I'm not normal.

    I bite it. It's fun and soft, and won't hurt me. But it's a pain to clean up. :csad:
