thought it would be, but
it COULD HAVE BEEN FICKING BETTER

I suppose they have to cater to all audiences and there are a LOT of kids watching, and I would recommend it for middle schoolers on up.

A culture's language develops curse words organically through repression.

In mainland Europe the most repressive entity was the church so in languages like French the strongest swear words were all religious-based (tabernac, sacre bleu).

In England, words of that sort also exist (god damn, Jesus H. Christ), but were far less offensive. Instead, the supreme repressive authority was cultural decency. Thus vile bodily functions (shiat, piss) and slang words for genitalia (cock, coont) and, of course, sex itself (fark) developed into the strongest, most evocative language. This also goes for Britain's colonies, including America.

Over the past century, however, American curse words have shifted away from British cultural decency into a uniquely American form of cultural repression: Race.

Slang words for races are now so toxic and unspeakable that we don't even want to utter them anymore, especially in the company of the attractive and successful races in question.

Point is we haven't eliminated swear words, it's just that the weight and offensiveness of the words has shifted from bodily functions to race and ethnicity.

And now, unfortunately, it no longer exists and can never be commented upon ever by anyone.

I found your submission lacking, Subby.


I too had some weird expectations going into that link from the mouseover.

If only there were a way to report such things.

How cheap is Nicolas Cage these days?  Is he on Fivver already?

It would be better if there was ANYONE other than Nicholas Cage. He's such a joke.

Meh. The book is better.
Bonus: no Nic Cage.

I could have dealt with Cage, but there was WAY too much hair/ beard dye. I couldn't even listen to what he was saying because I kept looking at it, expecting it to become sentient or something

I watched it.  It was ok.  Kind of a VH1 "I love the 80s" interview and comic approach with a few more braincells.  Six episodes, a few serious moments in the middle, but mostly handled with humor.

It's rare to accuse a narrator of "chewing the scenery", but here we are.

Exactly the vibe I got. The whole thing managed to be boring. They had way too much filler for each episode just to fill the run time.
It might have been better as a single, longer presentation and without exclusions that are obvious be held back for the next seasons. The c**nts.

History of swear words?  I just need 5 minutes in the car with my father or hear a few minutes of a phone conversation with his buddies. Could have played swear word bingo.

vudukungfu: thought it would be, but
it COULD HAVE BEEN FICKING BETTER

I suppose they have to cater to all audiences and there are a LOT of kids watching, and I would recommend it for middle schoolers on up.


Yeah, they give about 12 minutes of actual history then they explore all of the ways you can use the word.

I was hoping for better, but half an hour per word is silly.
