Cursing can numb your pain

Gawker sometimes throws up some intriguing bits of random information like the one about blowjobs giving you cancer *haha*.This time it says that scientists at Keele University have demonstrated through what obviously is empirical evidence (they had subjects sink their hands into ice water), that there seems to be a link between swearing and an increase in pain tolerance.

Most fascinating part of this study is that it is the prudes who felt the pain-numbing effects more than regular cursers (like yours truly). What a way to convince myself to reduce swearing like a sailor. No wonder no one believes I am a chick when I play COH.

Now I know why people curse their exes when they go through breakups. Because it numbs the pain.
