Mission to stop cursing.

Okay so I know a lot of people have different views on people who have a vocabulary full of curse words, and I respect each of those views.

Yes, some people only curse because they can't think of any better words to say. No, not all people curse because of their lack of intelligence. I myself was raised around people who cursed a lot, yet I am growing success using my knowledge of the internet and animation to slowly build up a living.

Basically, I want to get to the point where I no longer curse at all. One of my inspirations for this is someone a lot of you know if you watch my videos, Kilplix. You can watch through nearly ever one of his videos, and never hear him curse once, yet still remains extremely popular. I respect him a lot for that. I know a lot of kids these days look at videos and think excessive cursing is hilarious, and sometimes it is, but it shouldn't be the only thing that makes a video funny.

I'd like to rid myself of foul language and become one of the examples of comedy without cursing. No, this doesn't mean my future videos will be completely rid of curse words, it's mainly for me in real life. Videos such as Kilplix's Comments, I will not censor myself. All comments are read word for word. Also, my original comedies will still have a little cursing in them, but I need to keep it to a minimum. If you've seen Rock Paper Stick, you know it's censored on YouTube, this is because it was declined for revenue sharing because of the foul language. I suppose that means it's a move for myself as well as my career.

Anyway, I got this idea from an episode of Scooby Doo I'd recently seen on TV. Velma is trying to change Shaggy into a more proper person by changing his attire as well as his speech. She'd given him a rubber band to put around his wrist, and every time he said the word "like", he'd have to pull the rubber band back and snap it against his wrist as punishment. That's basically what I'm going to do every time I curse. Shouldn't be too hard, I'll just substitute words like "shit" for "crap", and so on.

Welp, wish me luck I guess. I'll update later on next week with how it's going I suppose.


  1. "people curse because of their lack of intelligence"

    That shouldnt apply to everyone, I consider myself a very smart person and I curse..not every sentence but I do like to curse just to emphasize what ever I mean or jokingly curse for no reason.

  2. Yes, I am aware. You didn't quote the entire sentence, though. I'd stated "No, not all people curse due to their lack of intelligence."

  3. I don't get this that much. cursing, just words you know? its just like race religion intellegence wars ect just random mistomeeeterz in which should have no effect but due to society are completely taken out of context. is it really gonna hurt anyone if some kid says the f word. but anyways I don't have your life and i can't see this through your eyes but im guessing you have good reason for it. btw this wouldn't be why you started censoring some of your videos is it? because if it is im glad, they are hilaaaarrioussss lol.

  4. I'm just fixing the things I dislike about myself bit by bit, I have no problem with people cursing.

  5. I totally know what you mean Tate. Good luck, its a mission for me too.
