Adamas used to say "QQ moar, your tears are delicious" when he felt someone was whining. Well, Klep has deemed this Whiny Post Day, so I shall try to comply. Though in all honesty I'm not sure if I know really how to whine... it probably jumps the border into ranting quite quickly.
Maybe if I point out something I've already blogged/ranted about it could constitute whining because you guys would be like "She's already QQ-ed about this, STFU". Anyways, let me whine/rant YET AGAIN about the fact that 10 man raid bosses do not drop BOEs. I think I may be getting more and more perturbed about this as I see folks talk about selling BOEs and patterns and such from their 25 man raids as the source of their guild bank funds. Woe to us, strict 10 guilds (see, there is my attempt at whining). Though I am more "Argh! For fuck sake!"
See, there I go again, jumping the fence from whining to ranting. Swearing probably takes whining to ranting as well, right? Now speaking of swearing, I am probably the worst offender in the guild in terms of swearing on vent or via whispers in game. The boys are surprisingly very good about swearing while Vel is my swearing partner in crime from time to time. Though Vel's swearing tends to sound sweet and innocent in a way, even when she says "Oh, fuck me".
In comparison my swearing is definitely more angry, as I throw out "Fucking-ay" and "For fuck sake" in whispers or on vent. Jess has noted that I am especially bad when we are doing arenas, and that I have a way with putting in more u's than are actually in the word. When I'm in arenas, it's "Fuuuuck".
Anyways, I point all this out because I have an explanation. Apparently neuroscience research has found that swearing increases your tolerance to pain. Even more interesting was that they found differences between men and women. There was a greater effect of swearing decreasing perceived pain and increasing pain tolerance in women compared to men.
See! So my swearing is a protective mechanism to shield myself from the pain. And Vel and I swear more than the boys because we get more benefit from it. It's all explained by science!
