The Radio Buzz... the top talk radio stories of the day...

All you folks with dirty mouths... fear not....

"Regent University's Dean of their School of Psychology and Counseling - Dr. Bill Hathaway joins us for this latest report. Reported that researchers in England say - just throw a couple swear words out there and it'll get better. It actually gets rid of pain. Dr. Hathaway - you buying this?"

"Well, yeah. But it's a little bit more complicated than that."

In the study - they found swearing to be a very powerful painkiller - especially for people who don't normally swear!

"So if you're hitting your thumb with the hammer instead of the nail - doing something to distract yourself from feeling the pain will let you tolerate it a bit longer. That doesn't mean when you're done swearing the pain is gone - unless it's just gone away on it's own."

Hathaway - was speaking with Chip Franklin at affiliate KOGO in San Diego.

Researchers at Keele University had student volunteers place their hands in buckets of ICE cold water - and were asked to swear repeatedly. The students who repeatedly swore could keep their hands submerged for a longer period of time than those who didn't.

So the next time you have aches and pains... forget the pain relievers!

Try dropping a few F bombs instead...

Buzzing right along...

Out with the old ... in with the new -- terror alert system, that is.

"Do you think it's a better system? Or do you think all of these systems are kind of just - I don't know - just a swig of booze for America - trying to calm our nerves a little bit?

That question - posed by Big John Howell of affiliate WIND in Chicago - to Paul Rosenzweig - Former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy in the Department of Homeland Security.

The answer?

"I think that depends on how they implement it."

The old color coded system - will be scrapped and replaced next week.

"Did you ever think the color coded system was worth pursuing?"

"No. And I don't think that anybody really did."

The new system - being rolled out next week - is a much more specific alert system...

That is designed to give the public better information about "credible" terror threats facing the U.S.
