Can you spend time re-arranging the algae in your aquarium instead of these kind of threads?

This may not really be on the topic of 'apostolic cussin', but since the subject of cussing was brought up. . here is something I have wondered about in the past (and I will warn you that I do wonder about wierd, if not often stupid things). Who decided cuss words would be just that. . .cuss words? I mean, who heard a word and decided 'hmm, I think that will be a cuss word' and people throughout the world, generation after generation would continue to view it as such? Who has that kind of influence?

During our travels I had some people ask were the crappier (toilet):sshhh

Thomas Crapper (baptized September 28, 1836; d. January 27, 1910) was a plumber who founded Thomas Crapper & Co. Ltd. in London.

Despite urban legend, Crapper did not invent the flush toilet (the myth being helped by the surname). However, Crapper put in effort to popularise it and did come up with some related inventions. He was noted for the quality of his products and received several Royal Warrants. The noun "........" was in use long before he was born, but no longer used in Victorian Britain.

The manhole covers with Crapper's company's name on them in Westminster Abbey are now a minor tourist attraction.

The words "........" and "crapper"

Main article: ........

The word "........" is old in the English language, one of a group of nouns applied to discarded cast offs, like "residue from renderings" (1490s) or in Shropshire, "dregs of beer or ale", meanings probably extended from Middle English crappe "chaff, or grain that has been trodden underfoot in a barn" (c. 1440), deriving ultimately from Late Latin crappa, "chaff."

The word fell out of use in Britain by the 1600s, but remained prevalent in the North American colonies which would eventually become the United States. The meaning "to defecate" was recorded in the US since 1846 (according to Oxford and Merriam-Webster), but the word did not hold this meaning at all in Victorian England. The connection to Thomas Crapper is conjectured by Hart-Davis to be an unfortunate coincidence of his surname.

The occupational name Crapper is a variant spelling of "Cropper". In the US, the word crapper is a dysphemism for "toilet," although it is not clear if this has anything to do with Thomas Crapper. The term first appeared in print in the 1930s. It has been suggested that US soldiers stationed in England during World War I (some of whom had little experience with indoor plumbing) saw many toilets printed with "T. Crapper" in the glaze and brought the word home as a synonym for "toilet" — a sort of back-formation from "........."

Yet another purported explanation is that Crapper's flush toilet advertising was so widespread that "crapper" became a synonym for "toilet" and people simply assumed that he was the inventor.

To complicate matters further, words that used to be okay, such as "piss" are now not okay to say... and words which used to be vulgar are no longer vulgar... and some slang words mean different things in different places. "Fanny" is a word I heard a lot growing up, but if you say it to someone from England it means something completely different... and to them "Bloody" is cursing, but it doesn't mean anything to us.
