WHEN IT’S OK TO SWEAR

A British researcher said his study indicates using swear words increases a person’s tolerance for pain. The researcher (Keele University) said he compared the pain tolerance of 67 students of both sexes when they each dropped a hand into ice-cold water. He said most of the subjects found their pain tolerances increased when they were allowed to exclaim swear words as opposed to neutral language.
