Johnny Tucker with he get -- talk about costs in that one thing clean up quickly and get Naia. A text your column about and a freeze people's and it's tasteless that'd take sweetened. Those that are Texans will be entering a whole bunches stuff. Not once as a very sweet tastes easy to hide in the sugary drinks only guests in no way he would you be league get to it fiercer and somebody. A -- billion heights so we're talking about costs and now Louisiana the fourth. Constant state in the country also the fourth courteous so we thought we go to an expert here. Doctor Christopher winter who joins us from. The UK now Richard Stevens a big part in Reno lineup professor of psychology ansari professor at. Kiel university in England and the easier it cubism. He's here to give us some. Yeah. It is easier to give us some. Some. He's here to give -- some and advice on Kirsten thank you it's trying to. Richard good morning where you where are you in England. In effect actually just hopefully -- -- -- -- yet. I have -- -- a complicated problem and. I certainly hope it was delicious enough Islam billion let's talk about costs and how in the world -- How in the world or why in the world do do we do this and and how to do don't get started. Well we. Everybody lives that swearing is that that we weekly slide and you can you call -- -- look at the freedom and likely -- that's what musical. So everybody. They seemed to all coaches on the for the slamming -- -- the way you let people who use way it's about China's. Great civilians and civilians. As that we. And so -- but he does it says it's interesting but he does it because. It must fulfill some of the patents because it is it is to -- -- -- it would kind of dropped out of existence. -- -- -- -- -- And it's fascinating what what purpose do you think it fails to demand angered to shock people to make yourself somehow feel in controller tougher I don't know. Although all the all of those things that can't speak to strangle them things like. It didn't help people kind of folding groups yup it's kind of yes swaggering coaches think by the military and soak and wet places. That it's like kind of swearing cruel trick of the opposition was a member of the group. It can be -- you people can be -- else. Yeah you know they kicked out of the angels -- he starting to -- an identity again comics of the moves he is. It to me it. The proposal kinds of -- by accident is the need to put -- negative functions you can believe people quite effectively decide in the past but I was in fact peninsula that. More publicity to the swearing. Positive uses. -- that he is. So that -- be able to think of putting it back to the Egyptian at least the -- At the high rate of of swearing -- -- -- the -- straight detectives he says. That's quite interesting between what you ram there's really story. It's not the of this over the previous well. But it will then awarded gold -- with a bronze medal -- sensing. I'm actually kinda climbing up the world that still dripping wet the BBC to collect about them that Egypt LeBron about how to -- And that is the the concept that. In fantastic is that she says. It picked up that -- -- -- not the people's last imposes situations. As well at that situation it just it just seems like it. It did things that you kind of. Moving. -- it to. Maybe you that you really didn't if you use swear I would you really you kind of really feel. Way about it. You know I think is interesting linguistically is that. People of all cultures and all languages -- so if I use a word like for example. That would offend somebody terribly. Perhaps in the UK here in the United States but in. Maybe a committees in country they have no idea when I'm saying and it's just letters put together but. In the mideast they could say something that I'd be repeating on the air -- not having any idea. That it's a curse -- -- swear word. That's why I mean it it's it doesn't like the conventions. Because. Over the flatly that there is a polite way of expressing. -- -- -- -- -- And it's almost like it -- the convention -- it's not just the full well the way that the wedding itself that we people kind of tacitly agreed. That because the way he should site way that you can't say it -- -- -- partly sent out of the Pol Pot the audience so. So glad you made it it it says that at the convention and when -- with right way to kind of manipulate and use it. In go to C bullet actually communicate I think. When numb when it comes to you know what I mud. All cultures swear but do all people in those cultures at one time. The other is the use -- -- swear words is there anybody on the planet right now other than an infant or child but. So anybody over eighteen on this planet in your opinion that has never uses swear word. I doubt it it did did you mean you got sick act. I think but he had to land so that -- to this. -- -- and -- the use of that lie in the process when you then absolutely you would and I you know some people calling in. Saying that I have that as well as they mean -- activities than I've seen by I think that after the same people. But -- -- -- -- other people that's -- quite a lot. We of these. My problem what I was in the in laws. Why is it that when people -- themselves excellent that was that was kind of what evolved starting question that is based on. A device and the things like that and those -- was people just in the it was a long been. I in the labor among whites won't do it ought to because she's in you know if you can -- Unloading my guess I would say because -- In hurts that's an audience. But quite flat light wind of what -- about some of the ways -- with it it seems like the swearing. How to do it in the book stupid meet with the dateline. Say united. You don't know what today apologizing about swearing -- and and then have it like that you don't apologize because it completely legal pot getting back in the field -- -- and cooked food. You know what that what Clinton -- the senate so I think that these people I would pay that we we've got cities in. -- publish -- Showing that they use these people and I -- to challenge. It states where what the people that I hope will. Painful but it doesn't do you -- the things he used to be upset with the people. I have and which people -- -- and then I walked along that it -- -- the sweat. That there piecing it needs the way. On quickly Heidi -- and we got to go and we appreciate your time but how did you get involved in this. Well I'll bet you he would myself of that the psychology -- it Healy domestically writes I -- due respect to -- -- is that what exactly. On this system and into the -- whoever you like to see it.
