    From what I hear, it digests normally unless it sticks to somethin on the inside, then it takes a few years to break down, or something like that.

    Gum will take years to "digest" as in be broken down by your bodie's internal processes. luckily the gum only takes the same amount of time as regular food to pass through the body.
