I was amused to read about research carried out at Keele University. Scientists there have established that swearing after injury may be good for your health! Following extensive research they found that letting out a volley of foul language can have a pain lessening effect.

To test the theory students placed their hands in a bucket of ice cold water while swearing repeatedly.  They then repeated the exercise but instead of swearing, repeated a harmless phrase instead and discovered that the students tolerated the ice cold water for longer whilst swearing. Personally, I am not sure ice cold water reflects pain but anyway!
 
So, next time you accidently injure yourself you can be excused for "beep beep"!!
