    Just wondering if any of the people here that are fond of the word frack or saying they are from Frackville, really are from Frackville.

    Just for the record, I was born in Frackville.

    I have taken rather a liking to it lately and I find myself using it in my normal non forum swearing rants now. Frackville? where the fracking hail is that? I grew up in Daceyville.

    And I'm very proud to say that my beloved Daceyvile has made it onto the world famous Australian Public Toilet maps.

    Frackville is in Pennsylvania. It is a very small town that is located north of Philadelphia. Not much there outside of a mall and a prison.

    Does it have a public toilet? because if it doesn't it just won't cut the mustard these days.

    Probably not, but I am not entirely sure. I only lived there until 1973. My family moved to south Florida after Frackville. I honestly grew up in the Fort Lauderdale/Miami strip mall area.

    I have been back just to look at the town, most recently in 2004. Trust me, it is a smaaaaaal town.

    Whoa, you must have been busting. Is that why you left? To search for a town with a public toilet.

    To be honest, I can't remember. Perhaps my parents were full.

    Now I go when necessary. After a kidney stone, I go quite often.

    But "Fort Lauderdale/Miami strip mall" doesn't have as nice a ring to it when trying to substitute a word for a swear/curse word. ;)

    But hey, I'm just glad I didn't grow up in a place I grew up in a place called Heck. Hell doesn't sound much better.

    We were driving somewhere from CT down to TN I think, and on the PA map(I think) there was a town called "Frackville". It stuck in my head. I wish I could say I was from Frackville, what a claim to fame that would be! As for the usage of the word "Frack" I started using it heavily to replace a certain swear (I have the mouth of a truck driver). Although, I gotta say, "frack" isn't nearly as frightening as the word it replaces. I let it slip the other day, I asked my brother what the frack he thought he was doing (he was attempting to use my Powerbook, which he has been banned from since he chucked it across the room). Needless to say, he wasn't exactly cowering in fear.
    iGary's posts are good for new vocabulary. Asshat™, anyone?

    The word you used was fine, you just needed to back it up with a clip around the ears, for dramatic effect, and maybe some extra repititions. :)

    something like, <nasty expression> if you so much as fracking look at my fracking powerbook again WACK I'll fracking cut your fracking WACK bollox off. Should do the trick nicely.

    Yeah, Asshat™ is ok.

    I've always been a fan of Ass-pirate™ or Ass-ninja™. Funny as heck.

    I like ass-face. It's simple and to the point. Assholio isn't bad either. Very true to the original.

    I also found iGary's new (and improved) use of toolbox™ highly amusing... :D

    Ooh, those are good!
    Oh yeah...iGary is a wealth of information. Gotta love him!
    FannyBandit is another good one. You guys are killing me...

    One insult that is quite rampant at our shop is "c*ckface". The first time someone called me that, I gotta say I was IMPRESSED.

    I'd just give it to them straight if I was pissed off.

    No substitutions. :D

    Gary has got me using frack in real life too. I like the word actually, it has a bit more of a nasal quality to it that its counterpart. I interchange them depending on the situation.

    In fact 'frack' in 'real life' is better than the word it replaces. Why? well it is replaced automatically in the persons mind/ear anyway. That is, they still *hear* the actual word that no one dares to utter. (unless of course you live in the town of the same name. Further you can really go to town. If you are using it seriously it leaves them confused and uncertain as to your true motive. btw I'm an INTJ. :)
