Cool Frakkin' Report Says Swearing is Good For You!

So I guess your mom was wrong -- it's good to swear!

Holy frak!

It's so true - expressing yourself and getting it out your system is so much better than keeping it in.

I've have never used profanity in my entire life.
I WILL NEVER USE profanity.

I Will not place myself over others and assault and demean them with some of the worst words one could possibly. I lived in a house hold like this and I hated it. It destroys lives.

For me it's hurts to hear profanity...
to hear parents rip apart a child's fragile ego with one word.
The opressive onslaught of school mates berating with this "language"
every day, every year. It's so cruel, so manelovent, evil, the opposite of love.

It's the reason being called human is nothing more than an insult.
Because we'll find articles like this one to justify searing life long scars into others if it helps us. It's abomidable. I retch at this. I can't help it. You might as well be a cold blooded serial killer, you'll destroy far more lives with a word than a gun and the effects last longer.

Let's see how much George Carlin could get away with here:

cat ****, bat ****, dirty old ----
69 ------- tied in a knot.
hurray! pigeon ****! ****!

Huh - the "t" word and the "a" word made it past the filter!

Sure, there are other ways...
most are no better.

Drug use today is the prevaing remedy for an escape or release.
Ask Michael Jackson.

We load alot of stress on our own lives, striving for fortune and striving to keep a fortune or sucess or popularity and fame. It all takes a toll.

I find reducing my responsibilities, inner thought, art and music are a daily thing and release for me and I've never had to swear to realse anything. I do alot of excercise and so I can sleep easy because otherwise I just think too much and that only ends in insomnia for me.

Most often I don't feel anything other than contentment.
(and sometimes mild amusement)

I take it out on videos games, it can do wonders when I'm stuck on a level.

Next poll: "Frak" versus "frell" -- the battle of the "minced" swear words. ("Minced" is actually a descriptor that's used. Just Wiki "frak." I did. )

Oh, frak for sure. Frell sounds like a shampoo.
After working with a 7th Day Adventist for a while, I now say "snap" instead of "****" but luckily that was the only profane change!

That's what I use battlefield for ..
But I take it easy because I can actually have violent tendencies because of the FPS games. I don't get the same effect when I play Mass Effect or other role playing games.
