Nathan Hopsons response to the claim made me laugh.

I hope nobody named Mankowitz lives in Japan.

It seems ridiculous that any language, in its own way, doesn't have a way to curse.

BTW, in that article they point out two curses that I'd never heard - and I thought I've heard them all Roll Eyes : ass face and fuckwad.

Stop spending your life in conferences and visit a local dive.


Give a man a fish and he can eat for one day; give a man a fishing pole and he will find an excuse to never work again.

Don't worry, Proof, once T. Rump is through with the scientific community, Kalleh's conferences will be in dives.

As a group concerned with words, I think we should watch carefully rump's attempts to prevent discussion and ban "controversial" ideas.

I think it's more a matter of "regional" curses - I've spent many an hour in local dives. Wink
