People Who Swear a Lot Make the Best Friends Ever, Apparently

By

Science has recently proven what a lot of us already know: the best friends are usually those without a filter.

If you think back on all of your best relationships, they're probably the ones that are the least reserved. Fewer reservations usually equal more fun.

And when you don't have any reservations with your best friend, you probably will speak freely and maybe let a few "bad" words slip out.

Although I try to keep my language as clean as possible around my kids, here and there a few cuss words slip out. I don't tell my son these words are "bad" — just that they're only for "grown-ups" — just like paying bills, using the big knife to carve up dinner... or listening to this classic Juvenile track.

And while there are a lot of people who believe that those who use "bad words" are uncouth or, to put it bluntly, stupid, it turns out that they're probably wrong.
