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.
"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.
