With sailors, we use "cunt" a lot more to describe things, ie. "absolute cunt of a tight pull on the sail".
No, cunt is more taboo than fuck in what I imagine is the entire English speaking world, though I'm not sure about their equivalents in other languages. I'd grasp that in Spanish it's probably the same, since I'd see fuck in Spanish dictionaries at school but not cunt. But that could mean nothing.

That's how farmers talk, too.

And shit? Yeah, not worth shit. I managed to talk my way out of a lunchtime detention for saying shit because the year eight and year nine co-ordinators couldn't agree on whether it was a swear word or not.
Haha, nice job.

We didn't have convicts in Victoria! Well, I understand a few ended up around here when this was still part of NSW, but Victoria wasn't a convict settlement, unlike NSW, Tassie, QLD, and WA. Melbourne was founded as a city for free settlers.

So when I go to Melbourne, do I have to say 'mothercunter', 'what the cunt', 'cunt off' (personal favourite) and 'cunting'?

Like I said, just sums up the way things are today. SA must have just gotten the boring ones, and the NT just got the idiots and the poor old Aboriginals got stuck with them.

Cunt is definitely worse than fuck. I'll throw fuck around all the time, but measure the company very carefully before i decide to drop the cunt-bomb.

You'll feel bad swearing around me. Really, you will.

Although, at school, if you got the right teacher and you were clever enough you could say fuck and get away with it.

My 7th form geography classes were a fucking good time.

We didn't get any convicts. We got European aristos, mate.

In my old school, I'm fairly certain that on average, the teachers swore more than the students. I'm also fairly certain that the teachers had a higher blood-alcohol level across the board at all times.

That argument was on the Gold Coast. Which may say it all.

Though I remember when I was about nine, before I left New Zealand, my friend and I were having an argument about the worst words, and my mother broke it up by telling us that fuck was slightly worse than cunt but they were both disgusting words little boys like us shouldn't know.

Of course, nowadays I'll say any word around my mother and neither of us bats an eyelid.

I don't yet know what it's like to have a tanto stuck in my knee cap, but I have a feeling I may find out.

Those are all very funny. But what about "cunted"?
