Swear words are not located in the linguistic part of the brain, but in the emotive part. This is why when a person feels any form of extreme emotion, they are more likely to swear. submitted by differentinfrench

Some have argued that this is also why swear words tend to slip out in moments of intense emotion.
Rather than being a deliberate choice like the words we speak, expletives are more so a reflex.

WHAT DO YOU AMERICANS MEAN WHEN A SHOW IS ON AT LIKE FUCKIN “8/7c” WHAT IS THAT????

We never switched over to metric timekeeping. The c stands for “Caw”, referring to how many times a majestic eagle has flown overhead and cawed that day. Sometimes the eagles are feeling sluggish, so the show could be on after either the 7th or 8th caw.
