That's more than there have been wolf attacks in the last 100 years here. And we're still having people arguing for exterminating the lot of them.

So, I watched the single best anime series I've ever seen yesterday. I was seriously impressed, didn't expect it at all when I began watching.

I do, but I watch a LOT of BBC. Also ( and this is a little odd) my best friend had a British speech pathologist as a child, and so developed a British accent, even though he is 100% American, and had ancestors on the Mayflower.

I just find it funny when American things have English characters use "bloody" really casually, as if it's no worse than "darn", when it's more on the level of "bastard".

From the perspective of a complete outsider, I'd rank those as about the same on the appropriateness scale...

"Darn" is what you say in front of kids when you don't want to say "damn". (I avoided using "damn" as an example for appropriateness because it's slightly stronger in America than in England.) "Bastard" is definitely worse than "damn".

Agreed on "bloody" being more severe, though.

"Bastard" and "bloody" are on the level of "I don't want to hear my kids saying that", which is more than I'd say for "damn".

See, 'bloody' is pretty mild, but saying 'cunt' will get you shot at in some areas.

I used to never swear at all until my late teens. Now, I don't do it all the time, but I do have to actually remind myself not to do it when there are children present. Although today on the train home there was a guy talking very loudly on his mobile and using multiple swear words, and there was at least one child right in front of him...

two kids, and I bloody well swear in front of them. How else are they going to learn how to use them properly?

:twisted:

Of course, that lead to my (at the time) 2 year old knocking her bottle off the table and saying, "well, shit."
