Barry Chappell: Chewing Gum Engineer

After being denied anywhere to put his used  Nicorette gum on a long-haul flight to Europe, Barry Chappell did what any self respecting man would do... He set out on a bizarre, and somewhat disgusting, six year quest to construct the world's largest gumball out of pre-chewed gum.

His finished project, which weighs in at 175 pounds and consists of 95,200 pieces of gum, will be exhibited on an American cable channel tonight. Nice one Barry, it's important to have dreams mate.

Check out how Barry meticulously constructed his stomach-churning project over at Buzzfeed
