Everyone swears. Except on the radio, and in most churches. So here are four random facts about swearing for all you a-holes to suck down . . .
1. About 0.7% of the words we use on a daily basis are swear words. That’s about the same amount as words like “we” and “our.”
2. The average child learns a swear word before they can recite the alphabet.
3. The people who swear the least are generally people who are upper-middle class . . . basically people who are “rising” in status. Upper class people swear the most.
4. Swearing can help you with pain. A study found that if you put your hand in a bucket of ice water, you can keep it there longer if you say the S-word instead of saying “Shoot.”
