Curious study shows that cursing increases pain tolerance. Who'd have thought?

So, think back to your teenage years and fire up those explicatives the next time the headache demons attack Wink

Interesting.

Just be careful about who is around you since they didn't study the effects on surrounding people!

that's quite insightful. Maybe you should help them do a follow up study.

I've actually heard about this swearing thing somewhere else. I think there was a study that said co-workers who swear amongst each other have a tighter bond and less hostility between each other or something like that. So kill two birds with one stone I guess...curse with your co-workers when you have a headache. Smile
