I think I have developed a bad habit of spittle / spitting when talking. Its particularly bad when at restaurants or say the pub when there is a lot of noise and I feel I have to yell to be heard. I'm a late 30s male, in London and this has been happening for years. What can I do to fix this? [more inside]

My family Christmas lunch has blown out from the usual 15 people to at least 27 and my original plan to roast a whole sirloin in the Webber isn't going to cut it.
I have a motorised spit-roaster (charcoal, rated to 25kg) and I need to cook beef. What sort of cut should I order from the butcher to feed the crowd? [more inside]

My adult son and my boyfriend refuse to ever send anything back in a restaurant because they claim the kitchen staff (in ANY restaurant, fast food or otherwise, ANYWHERE) will spit in it or do something equally disgusting to the food. I have always called bullshit on this one, but they are adamant. [more inside]

What children's book had one of the main characters, a boy, collect his spit in a bottle? It seems to me that at some point he tripped on the stairs and broke the bottle. I remember being utterly grossed out by this. I seem to recall it being a sort of a dramatic book, rather than light.
As a side note, there may have been a bully in the book who was obsessed with airplanes, and possibly a brother and a sister who were obsessed with kingfishers, although it's entirely possible I'm describing three separate books.

Why do people spit -- especially in public? I'd be really interested in hearing from someone who spits as to why he/she does it. It seems to be a class thing, and I'm too upper-middle class to get it. I never feel the desire to spit. But is this desire natural, and has my class training has just repressed it in me? If I could understand it, maybe I wouldn't be so disgusted by it.
