The Chinese do it INSIDE trains? Like kwahpuh right onto the aisle floor??Absolutely not - but I see it a lot on my travels... well, maybe not so much in Singapore but on the African continent including North Africa.

It's waste fluid, do you really want to digest it? lol And if you can't swallow a blob of gunk because it keeps bobbing back up your throat no matter how hard your uvula tries to force it down, obviously Mother Nature is asking you to "take out the trash", so to speak..What, exactly, is wrong with swallowing it, as nature intended? If you absolutely must, go to a bathroom. Otherwise, keep your bodily fluids to yourself.
