One more reason I’ll live forever

Okay, so we’ve already established that I’m pretty much going to live forever.  But according to the latest health article I found (okay, well, it’s not exactly a health article), not only am I going to live forever, I’m going to be sexy as hell doing it.  If you  think this has anything to do with salty language — well,  you’d be right. I mean really…just whose blog did you think you were reading?

The summary of the article, if you don’t want to read it (it’s pretty short though, so you can jump in without fear) is basically that people who curse live longer, healthier lives, and based on a survey of both men and women, tend to be “hotter.”

From the article:

“Several studies have found that swearing is a healthy practice that encourages emotional strength. Which pretty much debunks the theory that cursing is the language of the ignorant.

In one British study, researchers found that we swear to cope with situations that make us feel strong emotions, and that a good string of expletives can actually help us endure pain.

Not only do we feel more confident when we curse, but apparently it makes us a whole lot more attractive, too.”

Who would have ever thought that not only would my…ahem…occasional cursing… NOT be my downfall, but would in fact be a reason I get to stick around for a great while longer, enjoying the luxury of health, “hotness,” and a fairly unrestricted vocabulary.  It’s a win-win-win.

  1. Oh dear! In my 65 years, I’ve never cursed. Perhaps I should abandon making plans for next year as I might not be around.

    It’s not that I’m averse to swearing, I’ve simply never felt the urge to do so. I have a few choice words saved up, and perhaps one day I’ll have an excuse to use them. In the meantime, they will continue to gather dust in the recesses of my mind.

  2. Wow! Yesterday alone should assure me eternal life. 🙂 We should set up a meeting place about 1,000 years from now so we can have hot chocolate and cake while we discuss those who held it in:) I love this. Yay and finally, something that won’t make me fat or hurt the lint in my dryer…an article I can believe in. LOL Thank you for this
