    When I was a kid, I used to love playing Jeopardy because I had all sorts of 'worthless' information stored in my head. Love the stuff! especially as it relates to biology. Today I don't care so much for it or scrabble as my info does not extend so much to computers and the geographical info changes daily.:cool:

    DYK:

    The f-word is of Germanic origin, related to Dutch, German, and Swedish words for "to strike" and "to move back and forth." It first appears, though, only in the 16th century, in a manuscript of the Latin orator Cicero.May 29, 2013

    I wonder if it's used more Freely in the above countries. It sure has been made to be Awful in the U.S. A No No

    I found myself letting go with it when I was 84 or so...from dealing with body damage from surgery.....

    Imagine banning this because of the history of freedom it represents.

    My wife doesn't say the "f" bomb at all. I think I've said it perhaps 5 times in the 24 years we've been together. My wife's family doesn't use it or words like it.
    Unfortunately, it has become a very popular word, mainly used by certain people, as well as certain young people. I've had co-workers get fired, or get a very heavy warning, by management, for using it at work.
    I think society would be much better off if it wasn't used at all.

    Not to suggest that I haven't used it myself, even recently, but I agree.

    Here's a tidbit I just learned today. Lauren Boebert's (R-CO) level of education is a GED. Somehow this does not surprise me.

    Welllll, this is not exactly a tidbit. With all the fear mongering in vogue and worries about China I found this vid very interesting about the future as it may look. Go past the middle if you don't have much time.
