    Both have their merits and de-merits (is that a word:sad:)

    Swallowing may give some nutritional value and allow you to grind out an extra mile

    blowing out onto a windscreen gives an intense feeling of evil satisfaction

    Swallowing is soooooooo disgusting

    blowing out often ends up clinging all over your shoulder

    Spit it out man ! Worst thing that can happen is that it looks like a snail has crawled across your shoulder, best thing is the car driver, after putting his wipers on, will have a big smear..............I'm bored as well !

    C'mon - it's got to be a big blow. With the correct technique you gets a satisfying splat sound as you hits the target ;)

    That's why cycling gloves of any usefulness have a wiping patch on the back - to just tidy up after if needed ;)

    Only slightly off-topic:

    When having a slash in a gale do not point percy directly downwind - swirling winds cause salty face syndrome. Correct method is to point percy perpendicular to wind.

    Not bored.

    Yet.

    You should wait, and let it build up and when a car come too close let it all go on the car.

    Just think about the person having to scrape it off because its dried and has gone all crusty.

    I usually block one nostril with a forefinger and blow, clearing out both barrells at once. Sometimes though, the consistency is a little stickier than I am aware of and consequently get 'blow-back, in my face, as some of the stuff is still firmly attached in the nostril. ;)

    OT but, years ago my mate borrowed his Nans Austin 1300 so he, his g/f, me and my g/f could go out for the night, Cut a long story short us 2 fellas slightly over imbibed so his g/f drove us home. on the way back he opened the window and barfed out of it. when he got up Sunday morning, where the sick had hit the n/s of the car it had stripped the paint !
    When returning it to his Nan he parked it tight up to her hedge, posted keys through door and ran off.
