Nowadays, we are witnessing the times when this language is turning into the language of a newly acquired body, returns to its original sexual function; this time however, it no longer attempts to break the taboo but rather acts as the language of passion.
Love of the foul language of the new generation is slowly turning into the foul language of love.

 QUOTATIONS FROM THE SPEAKING SERIES
And the fact seems to be that analysis, if not indulged to excess, is an aid, not a hindrance, to appreciation.
facts accessible to a commonplace mind on occasions frequent enough to be rather often perceived and of such a kind that their characteristics can be adequately perceived without trouble: so that the facts concerning them can be familiar to persons not especially gifted and not especially alert.
On closer analysis we even find that science knows no 'bare facts' at all but that the 'facts' that enter our knowledge are already viewed in a certain way and are, therefore, essentially ideational.

 The Options Option--May/June 2000
Last summer, in the August 16, 1999 issue, the newsletter delivered to its handful of subscribers an explosive investigative report that continues to reverberate across the country.
Written by editor Carolyn Keplinger, the 3,800-word article released some foul-smelling facts about the EPA and its handling of MTBE, the oxygenate added to 70 percent of the gasoline sold in the U.S. to meet the air pollution standards required by law since 1990.
Keplinger's evidence -- gathered during a year of lunch hours spent digesting documents in the EPA files in Washington and backed by interviews with agency officials, city administrators, and industry leaders -- is damning.

 Spinsanity - Foul cry: When media watchdogs like FAIR and MRC complain about bias, they often only reveal their own.
But all too often, this analysis is driven more by ideology than the facts, as with the two most prominent media watchdogs, the Media Research Center (MRC) on the right and the somewhat smaller and less well-funded Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) on the left.
In practice, however, these groups often treat reporting that reflects the other side's perspective as de facto evidence of bias, with facts supporting their own views ignored or dismissed as an aberration.
Yet these valuable studies are too frequently intermixed with the ideological ax-grinding seen in several recent news analyses from both groups, which provide perfect evidence of how they can twist nearly any set of facts to fit their existing biases.

 Some officiating facts - Blog Maverick - www.blogmaverick.com _
More fouls are called in the playoffs than in the regular season, but fewer shooting fouls are called.
The number of fouls called in a game is more indicative of the type of players/teams playing (jump shooters vs. transition vs. grind it out etc.) than who's calling the game.
I admit LA has many good players, but the fact is without the absolutely abysmal officiating early in most of their playoff games they would not win as often.

The fact that Iraq holds under its dry soil the world’s second largest oil reserves only complicated the pitch for occupation: Americans don’t like to think of themselves as imperialists, getting their hands dirty to secure wealth.

Jasmuheen said of one of those dupes who died, that she was "not coming from a place of integrity and did not have the right motivation." I believe that Jasmuheen should be allowed — even encouraged — to demonstrate that she herself has both the required integrity and the correct motivation.
