It is no secret that when people are hurt they usually scream to high heaven an earful of "cuss" words. Well, a new study suggests that this actually increases your tolerance to pain... go figure.

wtf? and also, why does UG have to censor cuss words? I don't understand it.. we're all supposed to be older than 13, so why aren't we allowed to swear?
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..

I don't get it either. The majority of us hear it in music and such, hell most here are probably lying about being 13 and probably watch porn. Most bypass the censor anyways. Might as well just allow it...

It may increase your tolerance for pain, but depending on the whole reason for your cursing can be as simple as getting your arse owned in COD4, or having a dramatic negative life changing event occur, which can lead to some serious stress on the heart. The majority of the percentage who will be cursing out loud, or at all even will always have some reason as to why their cursing, which might have them tolerate some sort of physical pain but will probably affect them in some sort of other negative way.

Maybe I'm being pessimistic on the article but I see this as a win-lose feature of the human body.

The test they conducted doesn't seem like it would be most accurate, because there is no exact point at which you feel you must pull your hand out of the ice water. And the second test where they didn't cuss might have been an hour afterwards, or the next week, but we don't know. It could all play on mood and things like that where cussing only has a small impact.

I'd say that's true. Even though my family HATES it when I cuss when I'm mad. They get over it though.
#9
I'm not sure that would work for me.
In any event, the test isn't great, because it only measures how much pain you will willingly tolerate, not how much you can actually take before being broken.

Party poopers?

Who would think the Pit, of all places, would try to debunk an excuse to swear?

This reminds of the time somebody brought in one of those shocky-pen things that "hurt" when you press them. Everybody would freak out and drop the pen in pain when they touched it, even on their fourth or fifth time trying it.

I walked up and grabbed the thing and held it down for five minutes, whilst talking to everybody in the group. They were like and I was like " You guys are pussies."


BACK TO THE THREAD SUBJECT: I don't believe it.

this is probably because they expected it to hurt. you tried it knowing it wasn't that bad and it came out better for you.

Quote by The article:
The researchers enlisted 64 undergraduate volunteers and had them submerge their hand in a tub of ice water for as long as possible while repeating a swear word of their choice. The experiment was then repeated with the volunteer repeating a more common word that they would use to describe a table.


this part just got me... imagining these people sticking their hands in ice water and yelling "Wooden!" or "Hard!" for minutes on end.

That's an awful experiment, way too many variables, result shows us nothing.

WRONG.

The only reason it exists is because drugs get people fucked up, and people love getting fucked up.
