    I mean, really. Ever see guys on the side of the road or walking around and they spit on the sidewalk or grass? What's up with that? Unless you've got a bug in your mouth, or you're drinking something stale, or you're chewing tobacco, there is no reason to spit. You SWALLOW your flem and extra saliva. No one wants to see your hack on the sidewalk, or watch you toss your mucus.

    EDIT: I've now been convinced by the many handsome spitters below to love spit. Spitting is f*cking hot! icon_wink.gif

    I also never spit and find it a rather unattractive habit. But that's just me.

    My ex had sinus issues where he would make this disgusting sound where he would suck his phlegm to his mouth and spit atleast twice per day, it was one of the least attractive things about him.

    One of the nastiest pet peeves of mine. I see people spitting on the sidewalk or onto the the subway tracks all the time. It makes almost guy look unattractive.

    Why can't they just swallow?

    It is a disgusting habit. One of my earlier roommate used to do that and I always made sure to let him know its a disgusting habit. Atleast he stopped doing it when he was outside with me.

    The only time I really do this is when Im running. I build up a lot of phlegm after and while I'm running so I'd rather spit it out than swallow...

    I don't spit and I also find it rather gross when other people do it.

    One reason that has not been mentioned though is smoking. The smoke contains chemicals that coat the cilia (the fine hairs on the inside of the throat) and prevents them from performing one of their functions of keeping the mucus on the inside the throat there. The mucus absorbs germs, bacteria, toxins and other nasty stuff, and then the cilia move the mucus upward and it gets expelled to be spit or swallowed. Smoking interferes with this, so they may not be chewing tobacco, but you might see someone do the hacking cough and then spit out a lot of phlegm, they could be a smoker. This should happen regularly in small amounts, but because the natural order has been disturbed, they may have a lot of mucus to expel and rather than swallow, they spit it out.

    Honestly, it seems to be a very low-brow mentality.
    For example.....once a year my family's company has a picnic that has to include the warehouse subordinates. icon_rolleyes.gif
    As soon as these miscreants are outside, it is as if the ground becomes a magnet for their spit!?! icon_eek.gif

    Even out in general public it tends to be the poor and the uneducated that seem to enjoy this disgusting display of bodily fluid. I just don't understand this lack of self respect. It tells everyone who sees them do it, that they come from the gutter, and continue to be in the gutter. Bleh!

    I find it more maculine... its like a psychological neurological link to "ejaculation"

    Which is why guys like explosive and shooting objects (fireworks, guns) more often then women

    And why women like boxes and shoes (stuff to put something in, its linked to the genitals' role as well)

    It's not something I'd do in front of my grandmother, but if I hoarf a half-pound wad of snot into my throat that's tougher than a gummy bear, I would rather spit it out than swallow it. It's gunk. My body wants it out.

    That said, I'm getting over a case of the sniffles.

    I'm not gonna lie. I spit. I have always had really bad post nasal drip. And if I swallow lots of mucus, my stomach does not like it. Only way out is to spit.

    It means thinking outside the box is overrated.
