All you have to do is over saturate your mouth with saliva, then you can swallow it no problem, although it will be rather spicy

Actually, cinnamon repels water and saliva. Once it's in your mouth, the saliva repels the cinnamon, pushing the saliva down your throat and drying your tongue, thus making people choke on it.

They did a Mythbusters episode on this.

Here is proof.

See how it repels water?

It doesn't actually repel water, but it doesn't soak up water.
The idea is to make a slurry with saliva, rather than a paste. It's less like mud and more like muddy water.

Google says that it blocks the glands from making saliva, but there's a fancy word they use to describe cinnamon

that's not repelling water, that's blocking the saliva glands. big difference.

Actually there's many different theories on why people choke on cinnamon. It's hard to find an official reason.

gismothefirst wasn't giving another example, but simply stating that the blocking of saliva glands is not the equivalent of repelling water. Therefore, your logical is askew. At first, you said cinnamon repels water, which gismothefirst was disproving. Then your counter argument was, "google says that it blocks the glands from making saliva.." All gismothefirst was trying to say is that repelling water and blocking saliva glands are two different things. Your argument is incoherent.

.... wow, you just keep switching topics.
I didn't say that's why people choke on cinnamon, or that cinnamon blocks (or doesn't block) the saliva glands. What I said what that cinnamon does not repel water. This is correct. Please argue the point, or don't bother.

if cinnamon doesnt repel water then y cant they see y kids love cinnamon toast crunch?

If you don't want to accept the fact that there are many different possible explanations for this, than that's fine, but yours isn't exactly the only correct one. Just sayin'.
#86 to #83 - gjsmothefirst (12/04/2012) [-]
WOW you really switched topics. I never said there was a different explanation, or gave another explanation for why it's so hard. What I said was, VERY SPECIFICALLY, "Cinnamon does not repel water." This claim is indisputably true. Whether or not this is why it's difficult to do, is irrelevant to the argument.
User avatar #88 to #86 - herefortheporno (12/04/2012) [-]
You also said that you were correct, which is what confuses me. Plus I didn't switch topics, I stated that there are many different explanations and theories on how this happens. If you want to continue arguing about cinnamon, go ahead and reply but this is getting kind of ridiculous. Can we agree to disagree?
#93 to #88 - gjsmothefirst (12/04/2012) [-]
I suppose so.
I said that I was correct (which I am) when I said "Cinnamon does not repel water).
That statement is still correct.

Talking about blocking saliva glands, and then why cinnamon is so hard to eat, are different topics. Just sayin'.

My roommate took the cinnamon test and did pretty well exactly was AresX said and it worked. It wasn't easy, but he managed to complete the test only coughing a couple times and swallowing all the cinnamon.

i did the same, puked it up like 5 minutes later though.
User avatar #58 to #56 - sketchE ONLINE (12/04/2012) [-]
the trick is to chew on it. it actually works
User avatar #61 to #58 - herefortheporno (12/04/2012) [-]
I would put it in one cheek and salivate with the other and then eventually they'll cancel each other out and I will've eaten a spoonful of cinnamon.
