Besides, there's just something about expletives that end in hard consonants like "c" + "k" that just enhances the relief level. LOL!

Not to mention, have we not forgotten the versatility of a certain word?


------
The versatility of the "F" word: (frak and its variants are used) (list is far from conclusive)

Disbelief: "You've got to be frakking kidding me!"
Insult: "You is frakking ugly!"
Warning: "Don't frak with me!"
Compassion: "Let me take care of your emotional stress. Come on in for a gentle frak."
Resignation: "I just don't frakking know anymore."
Deception: "Watch me frak with this guy."
Parental aspersion: "You're a real motherfrakker!"
Telling the doctor what's wrong: "It frakking hurts right here! Really frakking bad!"
Complimentary: "This is really frakking good!"
Surprise: "What the frak was that?!"
Curiosity: "What the frak is that?!"
Unfamiliarity: "Who the frak are you?!"
Loss of privacy: "What the frak are you doing here?!"
Invasion of home: "How the frak did you get in here?!"
Catharsis: "FRAAAAAAAAAAKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!"
Caution: "Watch where you're swinging that frakking thing!"
Impending terminal violence: "You are frakking dead!"
Oversight: "How in the frak did you miss that?!"
Dismissal: "Frak off!"
Terminal dismissal: "Frak off and die!"
Defiance: "Frak you!"
Defeatism: "Frak me."
Terminal defeatism: "Frak me, I'm dead."
Sexual desire: "Frak me good."
Sexual prowess: "I'll frak your socks off."
Extreme sexual prowess: "I'll frak your frakking socks off."
Sexual impotence: "FRAAAAAAKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Abstinence: "I don't want any frakking thing to do with that!"
Mental instability: "You are frakked in the head, you know that?"
Imparting of wisdom: "Did you know frak is a versatile word?"
Assimilation of wisdom: "I did not frakking know that."
Questioning of wisdom: "The frak you say?!"
Dismissal of wisdom: "You don't know what the frak you're talking about!"
Terminal velocity before impact: "FRRAAAAAAKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK---splat!"
and last but not least---
Rubbing it in the censors' faces: "Frak frakkity frak frak frak!"

That's, to stay on topic, funny sh*t.

I don't know the show, but how about something like this as response: "F**k you, I surely ain't gonna help you out again when you run out of cream for your coffee."

Well, I find foul language to be offensive, to be honest. One thing I've noticed, having volunteered for several years, as the only woman, working on an old ship, among young military guys, is that they swear to impress each other or those around them.

Sometimes, I will quietly ask them with a smile to please remember who they are around. (I may be in dirty clothes and gloves, sweaty and grimy from work, but I am a female and old enough to be their mother) They nearly always appear embarrassed, apologize, and clean up their language.

With my boys, I've held up their father, as well as other men who do no rely on profanity to express themselves, as an example. How we express ourselves is a choice.

Regular use of profane language usually goes hand in hand with poor language skills in general and something like this would annoy me too. But if you hurt yourself (like in the example of the inital link), why not curse if you feel better after you let your frustration and pain out?

There are many things I consider as impolite: turning up the volume of a walkman (yeah I know, it is called mp3 player these days) such that the entire train can listen to what you hear, not saying please and thanks, hello and goodbye, spitting onto the street or any kind of behaviour that does not respect the private sphere of others.
I could care less whether someone says "sh*t" when his/her car breaks down or "f**d up" to emphasize that something or someone is more than just messed up.

I agree that being considerate of others is just good manners.

(And it was transistor radios, before the walkmans.... )

The problem is when they start increasing doses in order to relieve pain, then as it progresses they need the drug just to feel normal.
That's true but the chemicals he was using you coulding use to get rest.
Patients always feel even more tired after coming out from under than when then went in.

Don't be so harsh when you don't have all the facts. Drugs, alcohol, and escapism in general were, and probably continue to be, prevalent in the music and artistic worlds, but don't assume Micheal Jackson was using drugs for fun or to get high.
I would prefer not to know more than I already do.

I was not addicted to prescriptions drugs, but someone very close and dear to me was. She is still struggling to stay off the drugs. She was hurt in a bad accident and was lucky to survive. Now she has a bad knee that needs replacing and a pelvis that never healed correctly after being broken. She suffers from chronic pain. I saw her get VERY bad with pain meds, to the point she would take an entire month's prescription in less than a week. The rest of the time she would buy off the street and spend about $20-$30 a day until she could refill the prescription from her doctor. I found out because money was missing from the bank account.
Good...Lord. Mr.Q....
