Civilized people do a whole lot of stuff we all might find beyond our beliefs. To me, jumping out of a perfectly good airplane with nothing more than a tablecloth attached to strings goes way beyond doing some snuff.
The civilised comment was purely about spitting. I was brought up to believe it wasn't polite to spit in public. But as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else I don't care what people do.

Yeap, but chewing tobacco or dipping snuff results in the mouth generating all kinds of extra spit that has to be released to the world ever so often. It's not real classy but most considerate Dippers are fairly considerate since they know it's not pretty and can discretely use a spit cup. Most guys who do it know it's not high on the sexy things that turn women on list.

Then there are the rude and crude guys who don't care.

Sean does long cut Skoal and Copenhagen everyday and I can tell he is very much addicted to it. I am guessing most guys hide it from women if they dip, or maybe a true redneck girl would not mind her man doing it, would you dump a man if you found out he dipped?

It looks pretty yucky to me.When I see men doing this they remind me of a chipmunk or someone punched them in the cheek.LOL To each their own thing I guess.If it's legal and feels good do it I guess.LOL

Hopefully you don't get half way down before you realize you forgot your chute.

I've seen guys stuck in traffic actually open their driver's side door to spit on the road. What do they do when moving?

Some have brown stripes down the side of their truck and it's not mud. The others use that nasty spit cup I mentioned.

When that cup is full, they'll let it sit in the hot sun for several days and then throw it at any driver who cuts them off in traffic. That's why we Texas guys know to never mess with a Cowboy in a Pickup. (Also, they have big guns.)

Ha, yeah, I was going to add that I don't ever think I've seen this happen in anything other than a pickup truck.

No! That's one of the things I just couldn't deal with.

This is hilarious! In Oklahoma, hillbillies do the same, keep the cup full of spit handy and if anybody pisses you off, throw it at their windshield, this is definitely uncivilized behavior
