"The demographics of most "civilised" countries have increased, especially in the last 60 years. The demographic curve for Scotland in that period, is alarmingly flat. So, I would ask this. If Scotland is so fuckin' great, why are people leaving in droves? My theory is that Scottish people are like the Jewish nation. Apart from having very deep pockets, the vast majority don't live in their homeland. How many millions of Scots are scattered all over the world?
"If Scotland is so fuckin' great..."
What is the point of your use of "fuckin'"? Do you realise what it tells the rest of us about the sort of person you are?
You have no idea of the type of person I am, and if you're the type of person who decides what someone is like by the language they use, then errr .... have a go at Stephen Fry .... what sort of person do you reckon he is? His every other word is a profanity. Duke of Edingburgh? ... I have it from several sources at Balmoral that his everyday language is fruity, to say the least .... what sort of a person is he? .... so looking forward to this reply ...
I think we all judge others by the language they use even if most of the time we do so subconsciously. Language including profanities can so accurately reflect so much about a person.
Generally speaking almost everyone I have met who uses regular profanities interspersed in all their conversations have been fairly ignorant and not particularly well educated but of course there are plenty of people who swear occasionally or use the odd profanity to be a little more descriptive just because they want to!
You need to get out more ..
I tend to swear when I wish to emphasise a point, although I wouldn't do so unless in front of people I knew. I believe this forum to be an informal chat between "friends", therefore profanities are allowed, thereby enriching the conversation no end ..
