Okay i might have seen your post about Russians cussing and i might have a high need to ask for some exemples X)

HAHAHA OKAY I AM ALWAYS READY TO TELL PEOPLE ABOUT RUSSIAN CUSSES! It’s actually quite interesting from the linguistics side!

I did a very quick research and here’s what I found: 

Russian cusses are pretty much countless, but most of them spring from some basic roots (there are many more roots though, but this post is long enough already). The numbers are different, I’m just gonna choose the most widespread ones, thus the four officially forbidden by Russian government to be used by mass media. 

!Almost all of these are HIGHLY OFFENSIVE, many of them much more offensive than a simple “fuck” and to be used only with very familiar people who are okay with that! Russian teenagers cuss a lot, like, A WHOLE LOT, but more or less decent ones try to not do it in front of the adults. Adults cuss as well, but usually not at work (or at least so that no one would hear them). But if you commute a lot, then during the day you’re bound to hear people cussing quite often. I’m a high school senior, and children in primary school started cussing much more recently, those little fucktards. Like I said, there words are used only when the people that allowed to hear it and okay with it are around; on the street passerby won’t pay as much attention, but it’s really not recommended (although everyone’s just used to it that much I guess). 

Words marked like this* are subject to change depending on the sentence structure (even though in Russian you can insert cuss words almost everywhere, you should still be aware of what you’re doing lol).

Famous historical anecdote

“His Majesty, Peter the Great attending a session of the Senate one day,became incensed upon hearing of various thefts that had recently occurred .

He angrily vowed to put the thievery to an end, saying to his prosecutor general, Pavel Ivanovich Iaguzhinskii:Draft this very minute a decree in my name to the whole country, stating that anyone who steals an amount sufficient to buy a rope shall be summarily hanged.’ The prosecutor general, pen in hand,listened to the stern order, but hesitated.  He replied to the monarch: ‘Your Highness, have you considered the probable consequences of such a decree?’ ‘Write what I ordered you to write,’ the sovereign interrupted him.  

Still, Iaguzhinskii did not start writing, and finally smiled and said to the monarch: ‘Most Gracious Sovereign!  Do you really want to be an emperor without servants or subjects?  We all steal, only so me steal more than others, and more obviously.’  His Majesty, who had been deep in thought, heard this amusing answer, burst out laughing, and fell silent.”

Katrina Mumaw was once the ‘world’s fastest kid’. She earned that title at the age of 11 when she convinced her instructor to let her fly a Russian fighter jet and became the youngest person to pilot a MIG-29. On that same flight, she also became the youngest person to break the sound barrier after reaching the speed of Mach 1.3, then celebrated by doing a series of military-style maneuvers and aerobatics.
