At my high school people chewed on used cars.

Gum was verboten at my high school (as was dip)

It wasn't allowed at my high school either, but people in high places could get away with it (as long as they didn't bubble).
Nowadays, it's commmonplace! Just like weed is! ;-) At mine anyways...

Real heroes smoked weed in high school while it was 100% illegal.

I understood the joke.

You need to use an emoticon (like freebrickproductions used) if you're going to be sarcastic. It's nearly impossible to sense sarcasm online.

This happened to the kids who chewed on Pintos at my school.

Saw this news story float across my Facebook feed and automatically thought of this particular thread and the particular person who started it.

If it's clean, it doesn't count as used. Therefore you're not "reusing" it.

Who cleans a used Q-tip?

How would one clean a used Q-tip?

Why would one clean a used Q-tip?

LOL. Fundemental misunderstanding here. Google q-tip :-D
Unlike a toothbrush/washcloth/insert other cleaning device of choice, q-tips are meant to be disposable.

My wife actually found (in a dollar store of course,) a plastic reusable ear swab. 

Used it once.  Not a good idea to use them at all.

No, it's not. You're actually not supposed to put Q-Tips (or really anything at all) in your ear, either, due to the risk of damaging one's eardrum and/or impacting wax in the ear canal. I know this after I had to go to urgent care to get a double ear infection treated last year. (Yeah, that was painful and it sucked. I also learned that amoxicillin gives me a horribly itchy rash.)

In short: Don't stick stuff into your ears.

Cleaning out ear-wax is completely fine as long as you don't stick the q-tip to within inches of your brain. I go maybe 7-10 mm into my ear canal when cleaning. I also clean daily in the shower when ear-wax is more easily removed due to being wet.
