Advertisement Following Hanselman's post, developer Rob Conery offered his take on the problem of swearing in presentations, titled Fucking Your Way Out : The slide [at right] is taken from a talk by Zach Holman.
It's a gorgeous slide deck and Zach shows a deft hand at communicating ideas in a very concise way. I want to make this clear again: I'm not offended at the presence of the F-bomb, I'm offended that someone with his talent takes the easy way out.
Making your point with profanity is what the general population uses as punctuation to emphasize a point. It's conversational punctual shorthand. Advertisement Conery's main point appears to be "Educated folk should not use words common among the uneducated masses" my words, not his. He even goes so far as to call them "Walmart words" his words , which, frankly, is more offensive than any profanity I'd heard in Holman's talk.
Between these two common anti-profanity arguments, both clearly hold some truth. So how about the flip side? Advertisement In Defense of Profanity Holman posted a response, called simply Swearing , and breaks down his defense of swearing in presentations to three main points: Swear words are succinctly emotional and evocative Swearing is a crafted part of his persona—one that's served him well He'd rather lose audience numbers to his profanity than audience connection which he feels is stronger because of his voice Advertisement Regarding his last point: I'm less concerned about my overall reach than I am with connecting with my audience.
Put another way: I'm content with losing a handful of people if that means I connect much stronger with everyone else.
Your reputation is your brand. Just like a company, your brand can be deeply impacted by a small group of passionate followers. I've been seeing this for years- the same avatars retweet me, the same names show up in discussions about me, the same sites help promote my projects. I'm fortunate and humbled to have these people at my back. I wouldn't have nearly as many of them if I played it safe.
I enjoy keeping an edge, and they respect that. Someone else could construct a beige persona and cultivate a following, but that would be less effective for me because I'm not nearly as good at fitting that personality. Advertisement Holman isn't the only speaker whose persona has a little profanity in its grout. David Heinemeier Hansson, creator of the popular open-source web framework Ruby on Rails and co-founder of web company 37Signals, is a popular speaker who's big on profanity.
Best-selling author, passionate speaker, and social media dude Gary Vaynerchuk is perhaps the poster boy of profanity in communication. You can watch him speak in the video below. Advertisement Apart from an individual's personal proclivity, it's also worth noting that profanity is persuasive. One study found that swearing at the start or end of a persuasive speech can influence the audience: To see whether swearing can help change attitudes, Scherer and Sagarin divided 88 participants into three groups to watch one of three slightly different speeches.
The only difference between the speeches was that one contained a mild swear word at the start: "…lowering of tuition is not only a great idea, but damn it, also the most reasonable one for all parties involved. Also Lily was not aware that she is being an unconscious racism because of T Half awake, he sprang up and started violently swatting away the pests.
He left the security of the bunker, killing cockroaches with every step he took. He was outside now and the fresh air and night sky provided some relief for him. He walked to a patch of grass and collapsed, lying as he contemplated his dream. What the fuck. The images playing through his mind, attempting to tie in some significance to it William kicked the side of the horse and rode back to the farmhouse.
James and Crocco walked off the porch when they saw William riding towards them Divorce was not fun and this particular one was becoming her own personal horror story.
These groups were beneficial though, teaching her not to let his harassment bait her and that there was safety in numbers. So, the night he decided to call thirty-five times within an hour and a half as she chose not to answer the phone, she called her best friend to come over and help her cope with the never-ending ringing of the telephone Shut The Fuck Up!

The stage crew was expected to point the spotlight onto me at the beginning of our skit Even to this day, she has NEVER admitted any wrong doing as far as everything she did in S02 but they just expected the viewers to forget and fall in love with her. How can I or anyone else believe Hayley is genuinely on their side and remorseful of what she did if the character literally shows no indication of regret. Thank You. Where did that even come from. I swear I thought someone drugged me when I heard that shit I was just like, "What are you smoking.
Tyler hates her and she ruined his life. He 's one of the loyalist people on this show. You think he 's gonna dip his wick into the inarticulate skank who ruined his life and killed friends and mom.
You think he wants to raise the child he tried to kill in utero and the daughter of his mortal enemy? Marcus get your ass out the restroom. I know what you doing in there you nasty bastard. I telling momma you raising the damn water bill. The bus will be here in twenty minutes and I 'll be late waiting for you.
The mode of communication has vastly changed in my life time. As a child I remember there being a land line telephone with a feature titled call waiting indicated by a beep when you received a call while speaking on the phone with someone else and an answering machine.
Those items are now considered artifacts. The rise of technology gave birth to new ways to communicate. Letter writing and speaking on land lines are truly a thing of the past The van began to slow down as Brother Bill parked the car right behind the gas station. The engine came to an engulfing silence as Scott sat there staring at Hunter.
In the four weeks, I have been absent, the place has not changed. Angel was in her familiar place, serving behind the bar. While Ant is sat in his usual spot, watching the brothers as they flirted with his old lady. However, none of the bikers ever touched or took it beyond a mild flirtation. As much as I love being on the road with Twiggy, I miss this place. I have a good sense of humor. This is why Charlie and I were such great friends; he could tell the jokes, and I could appreciate them.
He seemingly evaporated from it, a ghastly spirit he was who held tightly to the briefcase he seemed to bring directly from the grave he was buried within. There wasn 't anywhere to look when he entered, for he stammered loudly between the grunts he breathed out and slopped across the floor in a slumped stance over to the counter of just another Ohio gas station diner spaced cross the plains, which apparently stuck in a good variety of holes for corpses among the corn I was pissed and got that fuck it attitude.
Call it denial, maybe. But it was obvious that they knew each other. They were too comfortable showing that type of affection in public. What was interesting was his body language was unclear.

Eliza snorted, readjusted the laptop, and relaxed into his embrace, allowing her head to rest against his chest and shoulder He forces Stiles to go down to meet his hips as he goes upwards. He starts to become a moaning mess as he moves his cock deep in Stiles tight warm wet mouth.
He lets go and starts to thrust his hips as fast as he can face fucking Stiles making him gag. He finally stops and lets stiles do all the work as he catches his breath I was plenty pissed off though, and I felt myself fixing to pop. Look at her. She made her way to the kitchen. She placed the four layer red velvet with yellow icing birthday cake on the island next to the balloons. Next she went outside on the back patio. She positioned the disc jockey at an angle on the left side of the yard.
She set up light fixtures that were being mounted up by poles, forming a square beginning at the house. She place fire sticks in all four corners in the backyard. Why not have Stefan tell her she can 't come with him and let her go. Why all this unnecessary drama. Why not have Caroline be single when Stefan comes back, maybe she lives in the same house as Alaric or near him or in some unusual living arrangement that works for them - people do it every day and it doesn 't have to be a romance.
Things such as inappropriate or offensive language, references to drugs, criminal activities or even references to sex can be deemed inappropriate and not broadcast. The question arises, is this something done for the good of the public, or is this censoring a violation of our freedom to hear or see what we want to, and is it also a violation of the freedom of the artist to not play their music or to force them to change and compromis It had some simple ideas such as adding a filter to the tap water.

Mmm, yeah, mmm harder. Aphrodite was probably rolling somewhere in her tomb, or wherever it was that she rolled. Which was fine by me because my interest was still on looking over at the Mt.

It's a very natural part of the way I communicate. Committing felonies? When applied to a specific audience, I'd be shocked to learn that anyone was turned off or offended by my profanity. You read the letter several before, but you decide to read it one last time. Nia sees the concern on her face, before Nia said anything Jodi runs from the room crying Letter writing and speaking on land lines are truly a thing of the past

So we are going to get some shit straight today. The bus will be here in twenty minutes and I 'll be late waiting for you. The big issue here is that it can be difficult to determine the correct way to use swear words.
Swearing reinforces relationships or quite literally comes between them, and differing social groups define their linguistic boundaries in a variety of nuanced and complex ways in order to negotiate and express their collective values, often to the point of inventing their own euphemisms or, on occasion, entirely new lexicons. Advertisement Holman isn't the only speaker whose persona has a little profanity in its grout. Upon learning this information, one would make the assumption that profanity is another common attribute to our daily lives, such as brushing our teeth. As a child I remember there being a land line telephone with a feature titled call waiting indicated by a beep when you received a call while speaking on the phone with someone else and an answering machine.
