Discussion question of the week:
Strong Language

Do you tend to have trouble restraining yourself from swearing? In what situations do you feel comfortable using bad language? Or are you the type of person who doesn't ordinarily swear?

Hm, I like it and find it interesting that both Dax and Weaver thought of the same word while wondering about Adele.

Heh, boys fighting over the new pretty girl in class? BBH, fellas, BBH. Though it makes me wonder who would win in a fight between Dax and Weaver. True, if Dax gets ahold of Weaver then it's probably all over. However, Weaver has a weapon, good aim, is good at camouflage and hiding, and can fly out of reach.

"Swearing" is unavoidable, it is a psychological necessity under stress. However, we *do* have control over choice of "swear" words. You should pick ones ahead of time you won't be ashamed of when you calm down. Ok, so it's not very macho, but my favorite swear word is "Brussels sprouts". My Mom used "fiddlesticks". My Dad used the traditional, but vaguely blasphemous "Damn" (he was ashamed of it when he calmed down).

In addition to the simple nominative swear, you will likely need an adjective to attach to despised nouns when under stress. The "f word" is popular these days, but I find it vulgar and demeaning of what ought to be a wholesome and uplifting activity. I find myself using "stupid", although it seems childish when I calm down. "Damn" doubles as an adjective for the traditionalists.

Some people collect a large number of swear words, both nouns, adjectives, and adverbs and their resulting speech under stress is described as "colorful", but the actual words are rarely if ever reported.

Any comments left here are PUBLIC. If you are not comfortable with that, mail me directly.
