The employment, by many, of a 'God compound' curse is interesting. Being an atheist it has equal value to me as many other curse words from various sexual acts to bodily function.
So I'm wondering about the God-fearingness (?) or otherwise of people who employ the word in curses. And whether the people who do believe consider the more Anglo-Saxon derived words to be worse or on a a par with the deity-rooted words?

I have students who do this "gentleman's cut -downs."
Instead of cursing they will say something like:
"You sir, are the festered genitals of a prostitute!"

It comes across as a kind of Monty Python skit- but you make your point.

cursing is a matter of etiquette, which demands anger management. i forget who said that etiquette is the oil that lubricates the gears of society. --- having said that: i find myself muttering "fuck it" or "what the fuck" or "fuckin' A" oftentimes. i try not to let my little girls hear that. "shit!" is a nice rapid word that i say almost all day while i'm working on the computer. unfortunately my older daughter has caught on to this one, although, amusingly, she thinks the word is "shut", which eases my mind a little. "holy shit", when i see something astounding. "holy crap" when i want to sound like i'm from the midwest. "god-dammit" with a nice pause between the two words, for effect. usually said in frustration.

LOL, kids make us a lot more conscious of what we're saying, don't they? I think that driving my car with my daughter in the back seat is when minding my tongue is most challenging.

not only that, but i've had to learn lots of other verbal kung fu - how to explain things quickly, succinctly, and simply, for example. or how to change the subject - my god that can be hard to do with a little kid.

My top picks include: -Motherfuck (as noun/verb) -Clusterfuck ( as in, "These people in line in front of me are all clusterfucks" or "Politics these days appear to be just one big clusterfuck." I picked it up from reading a few Richard Marcinko books.) -Hijueputa (a Costa Rican bastardization of the phrase "hijo de puta" or "son of a whore") -Fuckhole (a new twist on some old words) Enjoy.

wow, that's pretty embarrasing.

A few times behind closed doors when incredibly angry I've uttered terrible racial slurs I'd never use in any type of company in a serious way. I suppose it's because the words are so taboo that I needed to invoke their power to express my outrage, even though no such racial group was involved (to my knowledge) to said misfortunes.

Once while taking a surprise exam in an EE class, where most of the students were immigrants, as everyone began to flip through the questions I heard such mangled curses as "son of a dick" and "mothershit".

This is true; I rarely swear in anger except in the car. I get it over with in there and feel a lot better than if I just carried it around with me all day looking for an outlet.
