    I just filled a bag with candy and hung it on a random door. I don't ever want to see another piece of candy in my life. It's like candy heaven around here.

    It would be like bartering with pennies. Every single CHU is overflowing with candy. The TOC has boxes of it with little signs that say "PLEASE TAKE SOME FUCKING CANDY". The briefing tent has boxes of candy stacked on top of boxes of candy! :run:

    We had a contest to see who could eat the most gum with everything we had. IIRC we even had that zebra stripe gum. I know I've posted it here before, but this is on topic on what we did with candy in the IQ.
