Is it now acceptable to say 'f*ck' in the office?

Workplace profanity is everywhere, starting with our elected leaders, like Eliot (“I’m a fucking steamroller!”) Spitzer and Dick (“Go fuck yourself!”) Cheney, and continuing to our unelected moral arbiters, like Golden Globe–winning Bono (“fucking brilliant”). In Fresno, California, former deputy mayor Roger Montero resigned in April after admitting that he used “coarse language” on the job but denying that his language constituted sexual harassment. And a Virginia dentist, Steven Afsahi, was fined $9,000 in 2004 by that state’s Board of Dentistry in part for using profanity in front of patients.

Timothy Jay, professor of psychology at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and author of Why We Curse and Cursing in America, suggests that asking us to stifle swearing is not only unreasonable but also a violation of our basic rights. » Read the full article here

Man finds $100,000 in his attic; former owner now wants it

Crawling around his attic on a hot Saturday afternoon in July, Bernard Salcedo would have been satisfied just to find the damaged wire that killed power to the electrical outlets in his two bathrooms.

But the 26-year-old computer engineer found something else. Hidden in a cavity cut in the insulation was a strongbox containing four plastic vacuum-sealed bags filled with $100,000 in $20 and $100 bills.

Instead of enjoying his discovery, Salcedo faces a legal challenge from the home's former owner, who claims the money is rightfully hers. » Read the full article here

Dude proposes to girlfriend on demolition derby car

Kevin Weaver's engagement to Karen Slusser got off to a smashing start — he painted his proposal on a car and drove it in a demolition derby.

"Every woman I know says she wants to announce it to the world when she gets engaged. I figured I'd announce it for her and make it well noted," said Weaver, 34, of Danville.

Slusser, 47, of Mifflinville, knew Weaver was entering the derby. She saw him paint the car white and light blue, then top it with a stuffed bunny to advertise her rabbit-breeding business.

But this past week, Weaver moved the car to a friend's garage, saying he needed to keep it out of the rain. While it was hidden inside, he painted "Karen Slusser will u marry me?" from the hood along the driver's side and up the trunk. He also attached a large stuffed ring — with fabric diamond — to the bunny's paws.

When the car appeared in the derby arena Saturday, Slusser read the message and her family cheered. Weaver finished third, then met Slusser at the gate to the drivers' pit and asked for her answer.

"Yes!" she said with a laugh. And with that, Weaver handed her a real diamond ring. » Article here
