    I find swearing in Scottish very therapeutic, whether alone or in company.

    There's a surprising amount of profanity in the Scots' vernacular.

    All that aggression and frustration seems to evaporate...

    Git tae fuck noo ya wee biskit-ersed baw bags!

    It's really just a modifier of quantitative statements, ie:

    "Dude, I'm really fuckin' happy today!"

    "Dude, I just bought a shit-ton of cool shit from the store!"

    "These Blazin Buffalo Doritos are damn good!"

    ...Alright, now I'm just having fun. See what I mean? Totally positive.
    lol Exactly.

    I tend not to curse when I'm annoyed, angry, or I stubbed my toe.

    Does cursing serve a specific psychological purpose? Does it do any good to suppress cursing? Does cursing too much defeat this purpose?

    Discuss.
    I've never used a single fucking curse word in my entire fucking life. People who curse are shitheads. What a bunch of assholes!

    It's not cursing that's the problem, gorilla cunt. Motherfuckers who throw that shit around lightly have no goddamn manners whatsoever, that's all.

    I think Steven Pinker wrote extensively about cursing in his latest book on language, but I haven't read it yet.
