Washingtonians curse the least; Ohio residents most
Recent data reveal that Washington is the least foul-mouthed state, followed by Massachusetts, Arizona, Texas and Virginia.
Sorry Ohioans, looks like you have some work to do when it comes to cursing and courtesy.

The institute scanned phone calls for curse words from A to F to S. Analysts then linked the frequency of those words with all 50 states.
The data also found that:

- The calls that contain the most cursing are more than 10 minutes long. So the longer someone is on the phone, the more likely that call is to devolve.
- Calls in the morning are twice as likely to produce cursing as calls in the afternoon or evening.

In September, I'll turn 38. I'm at the age now where, when people ask how old I am, it takes me a minute to remember. I don't know if that's because I've already been 37 different ages and it's hard to keep straight which one I am now, or if it's because I'm in denial, or if it's because I am going senile. Maybe a combination of all of the above. Regardless, my 30s have flown by and soon they will be but a memory. So, in an effort to preserve the memory I have left (or at least keep a record of it), and to celebrate what has been an amazing decade so far, here are 30 things that have happened to me in my 30s (and will probably happen to you too):
