To those of you that know me, (the grand 2 people that read my widely popular blog), you will also know that I am a firm believer of the power of swearing. :)
Whack your thumb with a hammer and let rip with a stream that would make a marine blush and wow, that feels good. :)
Stub a toe and roar with a few obscenities that would kill a nun and wow, that feels good. :)
Smash you shin on a cinder block and let fly with enough swearing to fill the urban dictionary and wow, that feeeeeeeeeels soooooooooooo gooooooooood. :)
What's my point to all of this seemingly nonsense?
I. AM. RIGHT.

Profanity Bleeps Physical Pain
A study in the journal NeuroReport finds that using socially unacceptable "swear words" has physical effects that enable the swearer to tolerate pain better. Adam Hinterthuer reports.
Holy @$#%! According to neuroscientists from Britain’s Keele University, dropping the f-bomb can actually relieve physical pain. In the upcoming August 5th issue of the journal NeuroReport, the researchers say swearing is a different phenomenon than most language. It activates emotional centers in the right side of the brain, rather than those &#*@ing cerebral areas reserved for regular #$#y communication in the left hemisphere.
Green is @#%$ Good!!!
