Cursing isn't all that unusual these days.
According to a 2006 survey conducted by Associated Press/Ipsos, 74 percent of Americans say they encountered profanity in public regularly and 66 percent agreed that people curse more today than 20 years ago. The study also indicated those who do cuss, utter 80 to 90 taboo words per day, out of an average of 15,000 to 16,000 words they speak daily.
