That's sad actually......

Does that mean that the term/word "F-Bomb" is now an "acceptable" word? Personally, I don't think "slang-like" words should be added or accepted. But hey, that's just me.

So a hundred or so years from now they will not speak or write the same as we do now. Isn't that the way it always been? Have you tried reading letters from the 1800s?

I grew up thinking America was an open minded society.
Then I met a bunch of Aussies, NZer, Europeans and
they laughed at how "stuffy" our society is.
And when I found out that prostitution was legal..
pot is legal (and regulated) as well I was really
surprised.
No wonder they think We are stuffy....we kinda are.
