The25-year-old's disfigured remains were discovered at his parent's homein the northern Ukrainian city of Konotop, reports in the EasternEuropean country said.

The young man, whostudied at Kiev Polytechnic Institute, was working at a computer lateon Saturday when the alleged explosion happened.

"A loud pop was heard from the student's room," the ukranews.com Web site said, citing an aide to the city's police chief.

"When his relatives entered the room, they saw that the lower part of the young man's face had been blown off."

Aforensic examination established that the chewing gum was covered withan unidentified chemical substance, thought to be some type ofexplosive material.

The student apparentlyhad a bizarre habit of chewing gum after dipping it into citric acid,Russian news agency Ria Novosti said.

Smokeless tobacco users beware. A little pinch may blow your jaw off now instead of rotting it off later. :rolleyes:
