A Snippet of Dictionary : “Damn”

Ever wonder what “damn” actually means? I was studying Consumer Behavior when I came across the word “damnation”.

From Oxford Dictionary
Damn – v. 1. Curse 2. Doom to hell 3. Condemn …..
Damnation – n. eternal punishment in hell – int. expressing anger

This is the seriousness and true meaning of “damn”. Do we really want “it” to be condemned, cursed or perished in eternal flames? I doubt so.

Moral of the story:
Don’t use “damn it” so lightly! Use words like, “Shit it!” [That sounds weird], “*@#&#*!!!?#*#” [Ok, that’s not a word.] or whatever. [I can’t think of other words to replace it.]

***You realized how bored I was studying for Consumer Behavior. URGH
