    I've given up swearing

    Well I've given up swearing for good. Started off as a lent challenge two days ago from a friend, which I gladly accepted, spent two days conditioning for, and so far, one complete day without a profanity.

    Anyone wanna join me?

    I bet I can do it for as long as anybody, I dont swear that much anyway.

    In extreme cases yes, but otherwise not really.

    Neil's trying to perpetuate the myth that he is a rock hard Northerner.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Profanity can be a superb form of communication, but only in the right circumstances.. otherwise it loses its effect... i guess its like too much of a good thing :P

    nah you cant have too much swearing..too much is still not enough..like cigarrettes,beer,women,kebabs,fighting,cocaine.... hehehehe:P

    (only kidding)

    you are right..a well placed (and well thought out) bout of swearing can have just the right effect...too much and you start to sound like you come from Bradford

    The stereotypical English thug who swears between every word when talking normally!. Another thing I can never understand about English culture is the obsession and great interest with disorderly family life. Why in every drama that is on the television in UK they show family problems, arguments and divorce like normal, acceptable way of life. Also what I find strange is that in all these dramas where there are children they seem more interested with having boyfriend or girlfirend rather than studying? This has now become a reality. Some English people model their lives around TV dramas but why when they encourage immorality, bad habits and bad practices. Is this really causing the downfall of English society?

    I totally agree with you, but its not just an English thing I can assure you of that....

    Ive seen a bad marriage breakup at first hand, nearly all my friends have been torn apart by divorce... I have no intentions of getting married as things stand, no matter what the circumstances... Sadly its very ingrianed in our culture...
