but mooseyfate, if we no longer swear, what would we do to releave stresses? To cry is to be a pansey, to yelp or scream (in the case of injury) draws too much attention, and to just "hold it in" will increase the levels of stressors upon your heart, shortening your life time. To swear is fine, just do it in the right times and places.

I wish people would just ignore "profanities"
they are just words
if you ignore them eventually they won`t seem bad anymore

God you people are so predictable, commenting on this by swearing. Pathetic.

My favourite ones are "son of a biscuit" (biscuit can be changed to monkey, submariner etc), and s.h.i.t.a.k.e mushrooms, heh. Oh and `fudge`. Also here in the UK instead of the Sh word, people often say "sugar", in the North UK F-ing Hell becomes "Flippin` Heck" or "Flamin` Hell". Another good UK exclaimation too is "BOLLOCKS!" which can be used to mean "sh*t!" or "bullsh*t!" and is a literal slang to mean testicles...

I don`t swear....mainly beacuse when I was young, everytime I swore, my sister would slap my mouth three times hard. I`ve been afraid of swearing ever since, haha

When I stub my toe I cry. I never thought anyone would have the spare time to analyze the history, neurological aspect, and social aspect of swearing. Pretty cool though.

I can`t believe someone has thought so much about this that they`ve written an essay on the subject. My step son told me he heard me say "the f-word" and then asked me why I said it. I couldn`t remember even saying it, so I just apologized to using bad English. I was brought up with the idea that swearing came about because people were lazy with the language and couldn`t think of better words to say. Oh my mum`s sooo educated, lol!

At first I thought this poo was a bunch of drating bullpoo, but the brain diagram looked cool, so it must be real. What`s your word of choice when you stub your toe?
