Watch Your Mouth!

Whether you're proud of it or not, the fact is everyone swears or has sworn, here's some random interesting facts about swearing for all you potty mouths!
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."  I don't know about you, but a few people I work with are WAY above average!
2.  The average child learns a swear word before they can recite the alphabet.  This is funny to me, because I hear parents all the time that cuss non stop, yet think their kids won't!?!
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.  This is surprising to me, you?
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."   This is NOT surprising to me!
