Thought for the day

I see the avoidance of certain words to be nothing more than superstition, so to me swearing is the linguistic equivalent of opening an umbrella indoors or having twelve guests for dinner.

Some people will act as if you're doing something dreadfully wrong, even though your action is not inherently harmful.

It's just that, for some reason, there seems to be more people who are afraid of the word "fuck" than there are who are afraid of the number 13.
