The Learning Curve

New tricks for an old dog.


Frack is an expletive substitute for the you-know-what F-word, as popularized by the sci-fi video series Battlestar Galactica. It is also spelled “frack.”

I like it, I need a good substitute for the F-word, and “fudge” does not work for me. But I reserve the right to say shit. I think it is much better than not saying shit, which some people do.

I’m also fond of the Hebrew word mamzerim. It has a nice sound to it, but it translates as the English word bastard.
