Evolutionary trait

Ever wondered why most of humans (esp. males) spit while answering the all important nature call?

According to one idea/theory early humans used to answer the nature’s call near the bushes and shrubs, inside which danger lurked in the form of snakes and other reptiles which caused enormous damage to humans.

So as line first defense humans checked for the presence of these reptiles by spitting in the bush and making sure the place is safe to urinate. This ritual is embedded in humans and they religiously follow it even if it had any relevance today!
