Are you a bubble wrap freak? Do you like popping bubble wrap? I used to until I started mailing things that needed to be bubble wrapped, now I save all my bubble wrap, carefully NOT popping any bubbles. I just found the perfect answer to no bubble wrap to pop. Check it out! http://www.boreme.com/boreme/funny-2006/bubblewrap-p1.php Yes I was bored enough to click on it. Try it. It's addicting!

I am obsessed with popping bubble wrap. If it's near me I have to pop it. That is so cool, I popped a whole sheet. I almost popped a second sheet. I'm going to do more...gotta go...

Be sure to do it in manic mode. Not quite as satisfying as taking a big piece of the real thing and giving it a good twist, but fun anyway.

It was a good stress reliever today. I had some step child issues this morning. It helped me feel a lot better.

Heeheee! And how long did you play with that? I used to put bubble wrap on the floor and watch the kids play with it when they were little. Of course, I had to restrain myself so that I didn't pop all the bubbles before they had a chance to play with them. What is it about bubble wrap that makes people want to sit there and pop every single bubble on the sheet, regardless how large or small it is? Then, I, for one, am soooo disappointed when they are all gone.*L*

Hi Bo! Welcome back. It's been quiet around here without you. I'm disappointed too. I love to take a whole sheet and give it a twist and listen to dozens pop at once.

I love bubblewrap. I'm not sure why but I can remember being a kid and stealing the bubble wrap from packages and stuff and popping it when I should have been doing other things. I still like taking the bubblewrap from packages now and popping them. It's like a nice stress reliever. I have used the bubblewrap simulators online before but it's just not the same,lol.

You're right it's not the same! But it'll do in a pinch when you don't have the real thing!

i posted something similar about a year ago because i am like you because i love to pop bubbles much to the dismay of my family (they hate the noise!) but it is good to remind the new generation of mylotters of the fun of popping bubbles on line.

I haven't been on mylot that long, but I had seen the site before. Probably one of my kids or grandkids sent it to me, but it was a bookmark on a computer that conked out on me and I hadn't found the link again til yesterday.

I confess, I am a bubble wrap popper. I do one cell at a time. There are some people I know that put it on the floor and jump on it. That is way too noisy and a complete waste of good bubble wrap.

Thanks for the link to the site. Now I can feed my obsession without destroying perfectly good bubble wrap.

My little girl loves to pop bubble wrap. I like seeing her happy face when she pops one. I don't particularly have any emotions about them. They serve a good purpose and I suppose I am happy they were invented. Cheers!!

I love bubble wrap. We get it around parts at work all the time. I pop it all so we can pack it into the garbage bags to go out. We get small bubbles big bubbles and then the little packets of air. They bang pretty good when you jump on them. I've tried the ones online - they're fun but just not as good as the real ones. Last year part of my Christmas gift from my boyfriend was a box of bubble wrap (he knows how much i like it)

Popping bubble wrap can sometimes be a great form of therapy. We used it at my former job on occasion to take the edge off. Of course it may cause more stress for those around you listening to the sound of it.

I just love that bubble wrap material! I do have a weakness for popping those tiny bubbles! I have checked out your link and that really is quite funny! I guess it's not as good as holding the real thing though! Andrew

i really hate hearing ppl pop the bubble wrap! ive popped a couple but i just dont get the crazy need to pop them all lol! though 2 others in my household love the stuff..and that would mean that id be sitting there grinding my teeth listening to the seemingly neverending pops! so i always throw the wrap away really quick into the garbage can outside..no one but me seems to ever feel the need to take out the trash, so no one has found it so far lol! im gonna send that link to my sister.i bet my niece will get a kick out of it!

My children love popping the bubble wrap and if I want to save the bubble wrap I have to hide it very quickly. You can buy sheets of party bubble wrap for birthday parties and all they do is jump up and down on it bursting the bubbles and the one who brusts all the bubbles first is the winner.... wears them out, which is very good.

I am like you used to love poping it but started saving it so I can re use it when I send or wrap things. The only problem is my 5 year old son loves it now and finds it and pops it and I cant say dont do it because I know how much I loved doing it. Now the only problem is I went and got 4m of it so I can wrap some things we are sending to my in laws and he found it and poped the whole lot it was funny but now I have to go buy more.
