I don't know what the young kids of today say to each other in the playgrounds, but these days you don't see the word "gay' used as an insult much anymore, at least up here in the educated North. I don't know how things are down south, but I think the southern folk are still racist as hell down there. The southerners tend to have a lot of rednecks especially in the states that still worship the Confederate flag, so even I as a white man would not feel comfortable interacting with these people.

Florida is OK though, because we all know most Floridians are from New York.

But you seem to also be a tad ignorant yourself despite claiming to have had friends and acquaintances of all sorts of backgrounds. So what's your excuse, eh? :P

I come from a house where cursing was a rare occurrence, with my mother saying the word "sh*t" about 5-6 times a year on average. I've learnt all of the bad words by 7th-8th grade or so thanks to my classmates.

My father would occasionally swear and it was usually by accident since the adults around me generally watched how they spoke. In my recent memory, I think I’ve only heard my mother swear once and I was an adult, and for that, my mother was super super super angry and used the F-word. I won’t get into what triggered it, but it involved a friend of my father’s who disrespected our home and has been banned from the house since like 2001. That was disturbing.

Damn.

Never heard my parents drop anything worse than "sh*t". Other relatives from my family also don't/didn't curse much from my experience.

Ironically, I brought it up to her the last time I was home (January for a week) and she doesn’t remember using that language. I told her that she was so enraged that she probably didn’t realize what she was saying and I guess that’s why she forgot. She had every right to be super angry, though. Me as well, getting down to it, given how everything occurred downstairs. My room and stuff is on the bottom floor of our home. Generally, though, my mother doesn’t use bad language. My father, as I pointed out, seemed to have more restraint when I was an actual kid. Since I’m an adult, he may let something slip every once in a while, and it’s pretty mild, like “damn” or “hell”. I’ve never heard him use anything worse than that and I hope I never do.

As for me, I’ve never used bad language in front of my parents and don't in front of kids and certain people, but I notice since coming to Japan, I tend to use bad language more…but that’s due to always being so frustrated over work. Thank god this job ends next Wednesday...

I love how this thread has turned into a, "reveal your life story and your upbringing" type of thread.

We're one big Turtle family. A sista can share with her brothas and sistas, can't she? Don't be trippin' dawg. :P

Anyone who voted liquor, or weed... party at my place! If you can get through this snow.

Candy Kappa 03-14-2017 03:58 AM

I've tried cigars a few times at parties, it's not bad but not something I'd do everyday.

I will bring the Irish Cream, staggering amounts of coffee, and a spectacularly bad attitude towards life and everybody in it.

Utrommaniac 03-14-2017 09:08 AM

I'm down for Irish cream.

That number sounds EXTREMELY high. Are you saying that half the people between 16 and 30 have tried cigarettes? Cause I'll absolutely agree with that number. But there is no way that in the year 2017, half of the people between the age of 16 and 30 are smokers.

EDIT: I just noticed that you're location says "Portugal". I was talking about 16-30 year olds in the United States.

I also found it interesting how in a lot of movies with kids in it the actors would take out a cig and smoke right in front of them. I don't think you can do that in movies nowadays.

This reminds me of a moment in the Jessica Alba/Chris Evans version of Fantastic 4. There was a whole montage of them in the Baxter Building where Reed Richards was testing out their abilities and they're checking out Ben Grimm's new rocky exterior, and at one point the big guy says "How bad is it? You know I used to smoke." I remember in the commentary the actors explained that's how they managed to reference that back in the olden days of Marvel Comics The Thing actually did smoke. It wasn't just in movies and television.

I noticed they cut smoking out of almost all superhero movies. In fact didn't Wolverine used to smoke a cigar in the first few X-men films, then he stopped doing that? I can't recall which one it was in though.

Yeah, the organization that rates films started clamping down on tobacco use. It gets you an R-rating like the f-bomb now... more than one scene and that's IT for your all-access PG-13 rating.

We'll need all of it, in bulk. Just showed the old lady Next Mutation on Netflix. She's more than a little confused.

Null used to smoke in the Archie series.

Bulk is what I do, my man.

Next Mutation is on Netflix? And TMNT 2007?

Why not any of the GOOD Ninja Turtles shows/movies? :tlol:

And now that you bring it up, I wanna see Lady Null smoking in IDW.

ToTheNines 03-14-2017 12:09 PM

Haha, because Viacom hates TMNT.

Just remembered that Old Hob smokes, so it's not like they're not allowed.

Oh, that's right! I forgot Hob smokes! I don't think he's done it in awhile... last I remember was probably City Fall, when he was talking with Slash on the rooftop.

Candy Kappa 03-14-2017 12:20 PM

We have the 1st movie on Netflix (plus 07 and NM), not sure if it survived the last license purge, we did have it last year.

Oh that's right, I remember that. Didn't Dr. Octopus smoke a stogie in Spider-Man 2 at one point, or am I mis-remembering?
