The weirdest things sound clunky to you. "Cacti" and "y'all should."

I'm pretty sure I don't normally adjust my language for personal computer, although I do speak quite politely when it comes to foul language, with a slight adjustment based on the interpreter. I believe it was George Carlin who put into words, for me, the whole idea that trying not to use a word only makes its perceived offensiveness greater, and I've been using the idea somewhat in reverse; I'm not offended, but I save my own 'gosh darned cunts' as long as possible, so that when I use them my intention really comes across.
