Steven Pinker on Why We Curse

I know that access to my blog is blocked at least by EMC (heard so from friends there) so I will refrain from quoting this article's first word:
"*ucking became the subject of congressional debate in 2003, after NBC broadcast the Golden Globe Awards. Bono, lead singer of the mega-band U2, was accepting a prize on behalf of the group and in his euphoria exclaimed, "This is really, really, *ucking brilliant" on the air." (from Pinker on Why We Curse)
It's actually a serious article about linguistics, culture and human nature. Well written, well reasoned and interesting. Read Steven Pinker, Why We Curse, "What the F***?"
