Im not sure you're on the better end of the deal here... :?

There is always the suspicion that people are laughing at me more than they are laughing with me :wink:

My wife has said that one of the reasons she doesn't want me to die while climbing, is that she doesn't want my last word in life to be "SHIIIITTTTT"

You can't go wrong with Carlin's seven but I usually add fart, turd, and something that rhymes with what.

Also a catchy Blink-182 song called family reunion. Probably their best.

It took some strength to not just type them all out since anyone who comes to this thread should be able to handle reading them but...you never know what goes on in this wacky world.

If I die in a fall, I want my last words to be "CLINT EASTWOOD FUUUUUUUUUUUUUU" --splat.
If I get hit by lightning, I hope my last words are something defiant and proud. Just to be an asshole, one last time.

For non-fatal mis-steps, I usually just mutter "whoa SHIT" to myself. And in my head I think 'that was stupid chris you're gonna snap an ankle on class 2 crap and have to crawl out before succumbing to the elements or accidentally eat poisonous berries. Thats not gonna get you in the newspaper.'

When I hiked Mt Washington in winter i wasn't in nearly good enough shape so my legs were burning. once the towers on summit were in view in my head i kept cursing them out like they were some enemy i was about to fight or had just beat up or whatever. The meaner or more heinous my insults towards those towers the more I felt it took my mind off my dead legs, freezing wind, etc.

Dropped a $5000 project last night....caught it just before hitting the floor of the shop but still felt a need to reflect on the event with a full exploration of my vocab. For fu(ks sake let it out!

Swearing Like a Sailor May Alleviate Pain

Although the news probably won't stop parents from washing kids' mouths out with soap, it turns out that cussing a blue streak may be a good thing. A study appearing in the August 5 NeuroReport suggests that four-letter words may help alleviate pain.

Unfortunately, my swearing 'technique' is highly developed.
Mostly when I am by myself and I screw something up. I am pretty good about 'keeping a lid on it' when I am around other folks.
Discretion or hypocrisy-not sure which?

I climbed with a shiny young man who never swore instead falling back to "cheese and rice". I've always liked "fuck sox", of Christopher Moore fame.
