Brief Explanation:
It’s a common custom in some countries in the Middle East for lower-income young boys to hang out at street corners, eating Bizir (sunflower seeds) and spitting them out. They do this intimidatingly at other guys and mostly at pretty young girls. The amazing part is that they can do this for hours together, literally.
