Title: Episode 133: Coldmouth Strikes Again
Post by: Lemon on April 12, 2014, 03:32:17 pm
with Boots Raingear, Acierocolotl, Isfahan, Adam Bozarth, and Lemon.

Content for this episode was compiled by Caroline.

Edited by Isfahan.

Alright now fellas, what's cooler than being cool? These tongues! We're spending some time on IceChewing.com. As the name would imply, it's a place on the internet for persons who chew on ice to talk to other people with the same fascination, learn about the reasons that they share their passion, then ignore medical advice and go back to their ice chewing. This week, The F Plus wants to talk to you about the company refrigerators.

Holy shit
I dated a girl who kept chewing on the ice in her drinks, and I always thought it was weird and considered it to be merely a quirk but holy fuck this episode made me realize how messed up she REALLY was.
Well, to be honest, it wasn't the only red-flag....

I'm suggesting a "the kind of shit that goblins do" tag, just because there are a lot of old and future episodes that could be described in that way.

Jesus Christ, good work guys.  When I started the episode, hearing the subject matter made me think this was gonna be a horrid episode, but the voices and the jokes were beautiful.  Isfahan and Acier in particular, you two rocked it.

The "sitting down minding my own business just eating ice" from the roommate story sounds just like a really bad fake excuse someone would give for showing up to the hospital with multiple stab wounds.

By the way, great job for not making any Neuromancer/Shadowrun or Cat's Cradle jokes.

I had ice eating pica with both of my pregnancies. It was a disturbing experience the first time around.  It started out with a strong urge to drive the three hours to my parents house because they have an ice machine in their fridge!  Totally rational, right?  I knew about ice eating pica in pregnancy, but my brain refused to believe that was an option. My brain wanted ice and wanted me to want ice.  After having some blood tests run by my OB,  I was, of course, diagnosed as anemic. Two days on iron and I completely lost interest in ice.

But it was horrifying how quickly it came on and how completely insane it felt - like having an alien take over my brain. I can't imagine going on for years like that without seeing a doctor of some sort, let alone joining a social/fetish community

Off the top of my head "the kind of shit that goblins do" includes:
-tricking maidens into falling into quicksand traps
-hiding in garbage
-squatting in dirty hovels
-cast terrible spells (only goblin wizards)

It says a lot that the people who were obviously getting turned on by people chewing ice were the least weird ones.

I am actually barely into listening to this episode but I just had to say, it is the weirdest experience for me to listen to this because I've legitimately chewed ice since I was a kid and until now I didn't realize it was considered a form of pica and was related to iron deficiency. I just knew that there were people, as in this episode, who considered it like a huge lifestyle choice/fetish thing, and even as someone who chews ice I found those people pretty weird, because even if I casually enjoy it, the idea of considering it as a huge part of your life/personality seemed super bizarre to me. (plus it's something I try not to do on a regular basis since I already have enough issues with my jaw, since I tend to clench it in my sleep and when I'm stressing.)

Chewing ice grosses me out on a nails-on-chalkboard type level. The only way you can make it grosser is by combining it with TEETH CRUMBLING AND FALLING OUT. Jesus christ. Despite that, utterly hilarious episode. I really wanna hear that pica stuff now.

I've chewed ice before too, but mostly because my drink was gone yet I still wanted some refreshment or was bored. The folks we read from either had a quantifiable medical problem or were exhibiting legit addictive behavior. If you've never cleaned out an entire office building's worth of ice just for yourself or physically attacked someone over hiding ice trays, you're probably all right.

I don't know what your life situation is, but if the ice-chewing thing feels at all like a compulsion—like you can't even look at ice without wanting to chew some—then you might want to pursue some blood work to see if you need iron supplements. Based on fruit power's story and on some of the posts we read, supplementing iron seems to make the ice-chewing compulsion go away extremely quickly.

It's more of a thing I do when there's ice left in my drink, but I have genuinely given consideration to ice texture preference shit before so who knows. (the idea of absolutely HAVING to do it or wanting to eat the ice collecting inside the freezer or being compelled to eat all the snow on a mountain has never happened though, and I hope it never does.)

What you describe sounds more like a comforting/nervous habit kind of thing, like chewing on pencils or twirling your hair.  If you aren't thinking about when you'll get your next ice fix, you're probably fine, except for the fact that it's bad for your teeth. 

The best way I can describe pica is that it's like falling in love. That obsessive kind of love/crush that you get especially when you are young. It comes at you from out of nowhere and takes over your entire being. So I can kind of get how people who have it might turn it into a fetish. It is overwhelming!

 The physical act of chewing ice was not really part of it for me. It was just consuming ice that mattered. Sucking on ice was perfectly fine and what I preferred since I have a few fragile molars. I actually wanted Sonic ice because it breaks apart easily. It does not surprise me at all to hear it mentioned on the podcast readings.

Sonic ice, btw, is very popular in certain places like Texas, and people go there to buy bags of it to put in coolers like they might buy bags of ice at the gas station or grocery store. That's a good way to mask a pica problem.

I'm willing to bet that also exists, and if it doesn't, it soon will.
