I still see guys spitting all the time. I don't get it. Unless you're chewing tobacco or sunflower seeds, or you just went to the orthodontist's and your mouth tastes terrible, or you just ran a marathon and chugged a quart of milk, why do you need to spit? I see baseball players at Biola doing it, when they're just walking somewhere on campus. It's still stupid to me, but I can sort of understand that it's a cultural thing for them. You play baseball? You spit. All the time. But I see regular guys doing it too. Just walking around campus, and they'll spit. Right there on the pavement. Are you civilized? Did you swallow a bee? Why is that a habit? What are you getting out of your mouth that shouldn't be there? Do you have a genetic condition that affects your saliva glands so you produce 10x more than the average person?
In elementary school I tried spitting for a while. Cool kids did it. "Ok, I'm game, I'll spit too. I have no reason to, but I guess it's what you do if you're a cool guy." Eventually I got over it when I realized it was stupid, gross, and pointless, and not in a cool "guy" way.
I don't get why guys still do it. At this age. For no reason.
