Nutritionally speaking, does it matter how much I chew my food? And would the advice change depending on the type of foot it is (fruit, meat, carb, etc.)? On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being as little chewing as possible to get the food down, 10 being completely pulverized food in mouth), is there a number I should aim for?
A stray pit mix wandered up to my place a few days ago and has begun chewing on my car, destroying my brand new bumper and puncturing the sidewall of a tire. I called the Sheriff's office and a deputy was sent out to tell me that I can put the dog down myself but there's nothing they can do. I don't have the means to kill this dog, nor do I want to. What are my options? [more inside]
Over Thanksgiving I discovered I really enjoy chewing on cinnamon sticks. The only problem is they can get brittle pretty fast, leading to a mouthful of fragments and a really unpleasant explosion of cinnamon in my mouth. So! I thought I can't be the only person that likes this... [more inside]

My budgies love love love these chew toys and are about to chew their way through a third of these, made from the same stuff. But at $10 a piece, it's getting a little ridiculous. That first link says they're made of yucca -- is there somewhere I can either buy these toys in bulk, or just get ahold of tons of the raw (dried) material and cut it up myself?

YuckHabitFilter/NeedMoreToWorryAboutFilter: Say you tend to chew on plastic pens while working, despite efforts to stop. Aside from the obvious Googleable dental detriments (tooth wear) and, um, choking risk I guess, are there any other dangers, esp. ones not grounded in Freudian analysis? Are you ingesting scary levels of leeching plasticizers and resins? If so, can you litigate? Kidding...
