I was standing at the train station yesterday and my goodness do Finns spit! It's absolutely disgusting!! I stood there in my little corner and all around my you hear someone gather everything in their throat then hurl it out with a loud splat!!! So I really try not look where I'm stepping coz if i do, then i will take ages to get anywhere coz of avoiding all the splats of all different colors and density! eeeew!! Funny some people who've been here for a long time kinda get used to it. I can't the sound is the worst. Since everyone is doing it, its like a 6th sypmphony of finnish spitters!

that my dear is one of the most disgusting behaviour. I cant stand walking with anyone who does that. I had a walalo friend years back, we were going out with a group of friends then he decided he needed to clean his throat. I avoided him like a plague!

Ahh, but do they chew tobacco and then spit?

Visit West Virginia, Pittsburgh, or many parts of the South for some good brown stuff coming your way!

American men spit a lot, also.

Very, very weird.

As someone wise once said
"Tembea uone" I am disgusted just at the thought. Does it have cultural connotations, the spit cleanses your soul or something to that effect???

eek i hate spitters. all over campus there are people who spit everywhere. it has taken the joy out of sitting outside especially when you hear them first clearing their throats, snorting, grunting, swirling it around and then spitting ... think i've just grossed myself out. but i definately feel you. yuk!

eeww...i just ate and this didn't go too well. americans spit like they're being paid to, whenever i'm walking on campus, i have to look at where i'm stepping so i don't end up stepping on someone's spit. it's one of the nastiest habits...EVER!!
