Holy Sh*t
There is a new book on swearing, Holy Sh*t, with an article and interview with the author here.

I thought you all might be interested.

Very interesting, CW.
Roaming though history, linguistics, literature, psychology, and physiology, Mohr argues that swearing is a powerful tool for bonding, for expressing emotion, and even for containing pain.
I do agree with her that everyone swears, in his/her own way.
