Imagine little kids seeing those shiny water pearls and swallowing them. Not good.

Some will switch out as a prank as juice pearls in bubble tea, that too will go bad quickly.

You old guys are several years late to the party. These things have been around for quite a while and ultimately the disaster scenarios are few and far between.

Would be a funny way to mess with some stuff though

Want privacy from the diy/hacks? Too bad, the motherland has fallen, freedom is dead.

The only time Ive had to deal with anything like this was a school.. I guess they had a spill of some sort and they have this silica gel based stuff that sucks it all up.. well they dumped way too much of the stuff on the floor then swept it down the drain...

The night custodian was like you guys are idiots... the sewer was swelled up solid for about 100' with silica gel... not only is the spill stuff super expensive but then they had to pay us to come flush it out..

we jetted the line with a all reverse head and pulled it all out of the drain.. there was a mountain of sticky oozey stuff..

had a couple shop vacs running to suck it all up and dump it in the garbage filled about 5 or more rubber maid garbage cans fun job
