Man at His Best

Go Ahead, Swear Your F**king Face Off. It's Good for You.

Just be smart about it.

In 2013, Wolf of Wall Street blasted our eardrums with a whopping total of 544 f-bombs. Those eloquent f**kers.

No, really. 

According to Scientific American, new research shows that those who curse with grace are also wordsmiths with vocabulary of a more appropriate nature.

Across three tests, researchers found that those participants who knew more swear words were also more verbally fluent with inoffensive words. Though the study does not say anything about how curse words are used by participants in the real world—how often, in what context, etc.—their vocabularies in the study were all the richer for it. 

And richer vocabularies are tied to better socioeconomic status, higher educational achievement, and more impressive personal interactions—imagine how you come off in a conversation stacked with flowing imagery and emotions better expressed than as "sad" or "excited," minus the "ums" and "uhs."

So go f**king nuts. Go stock-broker-on-blow nuts. Just don't be gross.
