You might think it's common sense that some items are banned from prison, but when you hear our list you will be shocked by the common everyday items you may take for granted that are completely prohibited from being in the possession of any prisoners because what they can with innocent looking items like bubble gum, is insane. Watch today's insane video to find out exactly what these banned items are.

  • The key thing is definitely a concern. Fun fact in Norway the prisoners are given their own key for their cells (though to be clear this is in lower security ones where you have to earn your way there).

  • The western prison system (among others) is NOT designed to reform prisoners, it is designed to confide, suppress, control and condition them. Why do you think they ban some of the stupidest things like the Orwell novels? Seems pretty suspect to me...

  • You can soak a pencil in water to remove the graphite from the wood and then use the graphite to cause a spark off an electric outlet , just put one peice of graphite in each side of a 2 prong outlet and then take a third peice and complete the circuit, wrap some TP around the third peice and bam you got a wick!! Jam lids work too

  • When the gaurds say that it goes for basic stuff not real contraband. Its like gaurds have to do regular shakedowns and are lazy . Toss in some extra socks and toothbrishes with a bunch of garbage to make it look like somthing and overwhelm them with a hugh mess and they will not really look any further.
