Last weekend, Eve gave her talk about the origins of a dirty words. Her journey into the seedy side of etymology was prompted by a number of glaring mistakes she encountered on skeptical sites. Her exact words, I think, were, “FUCK!”
Here is the video, which is the size of a house (a 314MB .m4v).
You can also listen to the mp3 podcast version, which is more hamster-sized.
This talk is explicit and NSFW, but it’s totally ok to listen to it in front of children, especially strangers’ children.
And a special thanks to Mark Ditzler at Abrupt Media for putting these together.
