Pretty much the only time I swear out loud is when I'm the only person who can hear me.

A new study says the Valley of the Sun is tied with Portland for having the fewest average cuss words per day at 14, a third less than the national average, which is apparently 21

Wow. I'm pretty sure I hit 21 before 9 am.

Americans don't know shiat about swearing.

It's too hot to swear

I imagine living in Phoenix would make you say things like, "shiat, fark this goddamn farking hellhole straight to farking hell."

Or words to that effect.

I swear a lot but I'm from Nova Scotia. it gets noticed more the further west I go.

In any list, someone has to be first and someone has to be last.

Mrs. Carte alone, could change that average.

Particularly if she was talking about Republicans or to a phone solicitor.*


* A phone solicitor guy once called us back and asked her to apologize for her remarks.

I swear loads.  I've realised Londoners are terrible for it.

fark off, they didn't ask my fatass how many times I swear a day.  Buncha disphsits.

CSB?

From the get-go I have not shielded my daughter from words. There are some words that people call "curse" "cuss" "bad" etc. I always just told here they're just words, I don't care if she says them, but her teachers and friends' parents might get mad at her for saying them.

I would have thought she'd take every opportunity to say them when she's alone with me, but no.

The only time she swears is a low-level lyric to a song. Damn, hell, etc.

She did call our cat Miss Pissy-pants tonight, but that is what her mom calls the cat every time the cat pees on something.

Obviously they didn't take into account anyone who drives in this damn valley!

FTA: "Just 7% swear the most while driving or at work"

In other news, 93% of people responding to that survey were farkin' liars.

I always excuse myself when I burp. Just in case someone is in within earshot.

Not sure about the rest of the state, but my entire family swore a LOT when we were stuck in PHX itself for four hours over the summer.

We came to the conclusion it was designed by someone who used a Hoveround, who assumed everyone else on the planet did as well.
 
2022-10-01 11:33:49 PM  
That's because there aren't any F@#king Navy bases in Phoenix. Yes, I still cuss like a sailor, even though I got out 40 f@#king years ago.

The firm found Boston and Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were tied for third for the least amount of swearing

I don't farking believe it.  Maybe the people that responded didn't feellike they were swearing, but 'fark' and all its derivatives  and compound forms are artfully ingrained in the local vernacular here.

It does, but I think the Mormons skew the average.

Maybe nobody could understand them enough to realize they were swearing.

Kraig57:

I'd say ex military in expat communities tend to be the best and worst farking influences.
 
2022-10-01 11:43:51 PM  
I swear a lot when I'm playing stupid farking games on my phone.
I only ever play them when I'm alone.  If people could hear me they'd think I was having a rough time:

OH fark YOU, YOU CHEATING coont !
OH BULLshiat, I CLICKED THAT YOU farkING ASSHOLE !
WHAT THE fark?!  YEAH, WHAT A CONVENIENT TIME TO CRASH, YOU PIECE OF shiat !

I enjoy them.

It's because they mostly communicate with grunts and pointing at things.

Just another reason to not visit Phoenix.

Especially farts.  If you hold-in farts your body has to reabsorb them, and then they end up in the bloodstream and go up to your brain.  These become bad ideas.

My Old Reguar Hardshell Baptist grandparents would give us an earful for using "blackguard" words  like son of a gun, crap and so on..

"Golly" would have gotten an ass beating for blasphemy.

Well of course. Phoenix is nowhere near the ocean so there aren't any sailors around.

You've offended my innate American sense of decorum - I can no longer associate with such a willful and unrepentant profaner of simple civility!

That's because Phoenix is on a steady diet of vanilla. They don't need to announce its farking snowing, sleeting, time to shovel, mow, etc. They only have it's farking hot and everyone already knows it.

14? I doubt the  veracity of  this farking study.

We do see haboobs from time to time.  Occasionally giant haboobs.

Personally I find profanity needless at best and vulgar at worst.
I also find it mind agitating, as opposed to mind calming, so less conducive to level-headed thinking.
My tough-as-nails, ex-military, martial arts instructor to one of the students after the student kept cussing every time he got hit for not defending properly: "Stop fighting two people. Fight your opponent. Don't fight the opponent and yourself."

I never swore in front of my mom. I don't think my dad heard me swear until I was in my 40s.  Nevertheless, I learned my best swear words from grade school and my dad.
