I am always inspired by the best non-profane cussing of John Astin in this video. I have made it a point to not use profanity on the internets, I take inspiration from that clip to be a bit more creative.

My dad's college degree was in linguistics, and he was one of those who was a quick study in languages. I grew up being sworn at in Spanish, Latin, French, Russian, German, Yiddish, Korean and Vietnamese. One thing I remembered is to never repeat a word you did not understand. :-)

I sure could have used that yesterday! Had to have some blood drawn, and it took 4 damn tries because my veins kept moving around. I started shouting "bad word bad word REALLY bad word!" LOL

I love this,I try never to swear as my youngest daughter will repeat EVERYTHING ! I regularly say Holy Shit when she is not around or Holy Ship(a quote from the film Road to Eldorado :) when she is around but
stercus sanctum is a perfect alternative :)


This is hilarious.

Back in the stone age when we barely evolved from cards I used to have to use a "computer room" as an engineer. Apparently some of the older ones objected to us "young boomer folks" use of language. So I created my own words like "furglesnort" and "razzlefrats" to express my frustration with the PDP-11 and VAX-750 computers. (One command I issued took seven hours to complete!).


Oh, I forgot! Since listening to science podcasts my vocabulary has expanded. I think from now on I will refer to anti-science screeds I read as pure coprolite.
