A study out of England found that cursing can help relieve pain, but only if you don’t do it too often. Students who repeated a swear word were able to keep their hand in a bucket of ice water 40 seconds longer than those who repeaded an innocuous, random word. But the emotional release that kills the pain only worked for those who don’t swear very often.

- The study was originally done on chickens: Those who said “Cluck” a lot required more pain meds.
