    Got an F-Bomb? Feel free to drop it here.

    The only prohibited targets are HP and other fellow Hubbers. I'll start.

    TWC bills people for unrendered services. TWC can go F-Bomb themselves.

    F-Bomb all telephone solicitors and other spammers.

    The summer internet traffic pattern has really F-Bombed me.

    Why does "B" continually keep F-Bombing things up?

    Is this one F-Bombing thread or what?

    Is the f word illegal in forums? Just asking

      Yep, profanity is a forum no-no. Though "hell", "damn", and "crap" have been and seem to be allowable exceptions.

      Side note. I rewrote the op. Came up with a better way than the banana way. Should have gone the new way to begin with. Guess I'm slow in the IQ department today. Wouldn't be the first.

    Ok, I have one smile My frustration of the week is that I am having a heck of an f-bombing time trying to get my pool levels balanced.  High pH and alkalinity but everything else is fine.  I also ran over 2 miles today and was feeling great then promptly came home and got a f-bombing migraine which has had me out of commission most of the rest of today.  fun forum thread smile lol

      LOL,  ChristinS--
         Some years back, we set up our summer-only pool (3500 gallons; the kind with the inflated top ring that holds it together...) ... and we decided to save on the water bill and fill it with our well water.
        Apparently, it has a high metal or mineral content, because when we added the pool chemicals, the water turned the color of F-bombing orange soda-pop!  Took it to be tested; they said it was safe, just weird, and we got a neutralizer to add and take the metal out; took away the color, so all was well.

        ChristinSposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        Wow - yeah, I'd be upset too if that happened.  Makes me glad we decided not to use the water from the well and go with the city water instead.  Glad it wasn't toxic at least.  We have more fbombing chemicals to add and then when we get it balanced I am investing in a salt filter to make it easier to manage.

        As for f-bombing cable - we dropped that and have Roku boxes and Netflix these days.  Never been happier and it saves a ton of money.  I hated dealing with the f-bombing satellite companies.  We have a local cable company I use for internet only and I am fortunate that they are really awesome.

    Why is it,

    From the simple to the complex,

    I always run into F-bombing obstructions?

    It just never ends. It just never stops. Ever.

    And this concludes today's life rant.

      Aw, I'm sorry!  I hope your Fbombing day gets better wink.  We all have these days/times in life - and they pass smile hang in there.  I had a week like this just last week - dealing with one parent just out of surgery and another who had to have biopsy done - fbombing stressful and these situations seem to travel in clusters.  It will get better.  Change is a constant.

    To F Bomb or not to F Bomb, that is the F bomb?
    Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
    The slings and  F Bombs of outrageous fortune,
    Or to take arms against a sea of  F Bombs,
    And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;
    No more; and by a sleep to say we  F Bomb
    The heart-ache and the thousand natural  F Bombs
    That flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummation
    Devoutly to be  F Bomb. To die, to  F Bomb;
    To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the  F Bomb;
    For in that sleep of death what  F Bombs may come
    When we have shuffled off this  F Bomb,
    Must give us pause: there's the  F Bomb
    That makes calamity of so long life;
    For who would bear the whips and scorns of  F Bomb
    The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's  F Bomb,
    The pangs of despised love, the  F Bomb delay,
    The insolence of office and the  F Bomb
    That patient merit of the unworthy  F Bomb,
    When he himself might his quietus make
    With a bare  F Bomb? who would fardels bear,
    To grunt and sweat under a weary  F Bomb,
    But that the dread of something after death,
    The undiscover'd  F Bomb from whose bourn
    No traveller returns, puzzles the will
    And makes us rather bear those  F Bombs we have
    Than fly to others that we know not of?
    Thus conscience does make  F Bombs of us all;
    And thus the native hue of resolution
    Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
    And enterprises of great pith and moment
    With this regard their currents turn  F Bomb-ish?,
    And lose the name of action. -  F Bomb you now!
    The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy  F Bomb
    Be all my  F Bombs remember'd.

    F-bombing Cable service, also known as Dumb-Cast, Crumb-Cast or Crap-Cast....

    ALWAYS manages to f-bomb up the billing, and then use fuzzy math to try and explain why a $10 credit only shows up as a $6.45 credit on the bill.....

        DzyMsLizzyposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        Nope--all itemized separately...the tax isn't part of the credit, or the result of the difference.  IMO, it's an F-bombing scam!  They figure most people will just pay the "amount due" without looking at the itemized charges.

            They are bad, but there is little choice.  AT&T was not willing to give access to the fastest line service to the former ISP we had; Dish is worse, and AT&T proper does not offer it's high-speed "U-Verse" package "in our area," even though we can see the service box 500 feet away from our house!
            They are ALL F-bombing A**holes!

              I used to work for numerous ISP's in Ireland while in University. It's pretty much the same as the US there. The ISP's would literally have us programed to give people the run around. I now live in Wisconsin which, outside of the main cities, has particularly poor service. The customer service here is the same. I know people living 40 miles north of Madison (the capital of WI) who have NO internet access at all and have to use satellite broadband.
              The ISP's response when they inquire? "We are unavailable in your area. We will send you a letter when our services are available" They then become irate and try to end the call as my friend is no longer an easy sign up/ sale.

    Since I am a high school teacher, I constantly have to remind my students that those words are unacceptable. I recently used the opportunity to teach them a new word which encompasses all of those words though which is expletive. It reminds me of the Nixon tapes (I think) when they say expletive deleted.

    One of my other solutions is to remind them they can express themselves better without the use of those words. Of course they can use biological terms, but that takes all the bite out of the words. When did it become acceptable to use four letter words everywhere? Personally, I only use them  in private conversations where all participants are okay with it.

      krantcents - it's a joke thread smile smile - life is good.  I don't tell my teenagers to run around using them either, but I'd rather they do that then oh drink, fail school, drugs etc. smile  Most people don't run around dropping f-bombs or other words in public places, around children, etc.  But adults can express themselves and have a little fun with it and blow off some steam. smile  I grew up around it, and I am still educated and able to function professionally when necessary, as are most of us who do, periodically, pepper our language to express intensity of emotion lol.

      DzyMsLizzyposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      krantcents--It's "just a word."  It is a matter of place and time, as to whether or not it is acceptable to use. 
      However, IMO, on the flip side, the more such "language" is heard, the more it loses its shock value, and therefore the less offensive it becomes.  I don't allow myself to become offended by "foul" language.  I use plenty of it myself in certain circumstances.
      For example, "OUCH!  Doggone it!" Just does not quite cut it when you've slammed your thumb with a hammer.  Check out this article from Scientific American:
      http://  www.  scientificamerican.com/article/why-do-we-swear/
      (Take out the double spaces to make the link work)

      I always take circumstances into consideration.  I am equally capable of the proper language for taking high tea with the Queen, or of matching word for word with the proverbial sailor or a barroom crowd.

      And finally, as ChristinS has pointed out, this IS a "just in fun" thread for ADULTS....so no harm, no foul.

    That "B" site is such a neverending piece of f-bombing cr@p.

    Every time I go there today in pursuit of gathering my daily $.50, and the site crashes, I'm going to F-Bomb them here.

    Here is for the first three crashes I've already experienced today.

    F-bomb "B".

    F-bomb "B".

    F-bomb "B".

    We'll see how many more show up in the next hour-and-a-half.

        Instead of repeating myself, I'll just say: F-Bomb "B" 3X.

        And an illustrious $.12 earned.

        And I quit. Am done for the day there.

    "F-bombing" takes too long to type. I like terms like "fscking" and "effing" instead, and if you don't, that's your own forking problem.
