FirstNationalBastard: They're swimming in jizz?


Yes, but we're talking about what they're doing in the pools, not just outside of the pools.

...

Wait, nevermind.

I noticed a lot of them will scoop up pool water and put it in their mouths. Seemed a tad odd to me.

I have no idea why I did it, but I know I did, and I'm almost certain everyone else on my swim teams did it as well.

The additives are made by the same company that distributes Flintstone vitamins. Thus, the pool at London's Aquatic Centre tastes like a red Wilma.

Now why did they have to go and put such a horrible image in my head?

I thought they just liked the taste of my urine.

Is this one of those "that's the joke" jpeg kind of jokes? I spit water when I swim because I inhale through my mouth and some water always gets in, which I eventually have to spit out.

ROCKET SCIENCE!

Swollowing is for the birds.

one Spitz, the other swallows.

Well, Phelps is a giant douche bag. Squirting water is his nature.

I hate spitting in pornos. Why do you need to hock a loogie when you're eating some chick out?

Or, you know, they could just be wetting their mouth, and removing the cotton mouth taste.

/Nah, they'd go find a water bottle for that rather than just use the giant puddle in front of them

Actually it has to do with removing excess body heat. There's a lot of large blood vessels that pass close to the surface of the inside of the mouth. Bringing sub-body temperature water, swishing it around and spitting it out helps to reduce the overall temperature of the blood, particularly blood moving close to the brain.

Don't blame me. I've never been with an Olympic swimmer.
 
2012-07-30 07:59:18 PM  
DOODIE!
 
2012-07-30 09:02:16 PM  
wait... they spike the pool water?

Yeah, spitting in porns bothers me too(spiting in general), just grab some farking lube

On swim teams from age of 5 all the way through high school, never spit in or out of the pool.
