Hi,

"Swearing helps many people better tolerate pain. So you can use profanity to sledgehammer through the wall during a marathon

Isn't swearing wonderful? To my mind it fucking is. The act of swearing, the summoning of words that are strangely imbued with a delicious potency, is both a force to be reckoned with and a joy to be had. In conversation it sharpens the point and intensifies the argument. In moments of ecstasy it punctuates the climax. Swearing has psychological properties too, having the power to both generate physical energy and alleviate anguish. Easy, egalitarian, effective - really, what's not to like?

In bygone years, salty language brought `forbidden' ideas to mind. Take a wank, for example, or a fuck. These are deliciously coarse words used to describe activities that, while entirely normal, we nevertheless still like to see happen behind closed doors. The history of swearing is, of course, deeply entwined with that of the Church, where to take the Lord's sobriquet in vain is/was a punishable taboo. Speaking as one whose mother named him after The Pope, none of this is lost on me.

The original John-Paul taught me all about blasphemy, that strange concept whereby certain words are permissible unless repeated in the wrong context. I grew up knowing that to utter the words "Jesus Christ" in a fit of pique was a very bad thing, not mention throwing the odd "fucking" in there for good measure. Which, of course, made me love it all the more"


Good Heavens !


Regards, Mick. D.

It's time for a return to the era when refined gentlemen didn't use that type of language. You all need to look inside yourself and ask, do I really need to use this profanity?.......................... Do I give a fuck what anyone things? :tease: :tease:

Well Yorkie.
Shakespeare is said to have put a large number of words in the English dictionary. ( That is why his works need to be performed so that the word can be acted and its meaning understood)
In all of his 37 plays, there is always a touch of "rumpty tumpty" and the spoken "discription" was Horney..
This all changed with Romeo and Juliet, when the had "A fuck"
(Wonder how they performed this scene on stage!!)

Shakers
(Act ll Scene VI)
