    Fans of Battlestar Galactica may know that those two words are used a lot in the series.

    How did they get away with it when it so obviously just another word for f**k?

    It's also used a lot on this forum but that's another topic.

    If I recall, Frak and Frakking were used to describe two not very attractive women in a long time ago politcal affair. Perhaps Nelson Rockefeller. Oh, it is Frk and Frak. wikipedia time. National sensations until they blew over. I thought they were attractive. Heck, I found Linda MCCartney attractive. Not drop dead beautiful as Jean or Chrissie Shrimpton but attractive.

    Yoko I have never found attractive. I hate her less but unattractive remains in so many ways.

    And then Yoko tried singing, the rest is history . . .

    Who gives a frakking gods damn?

    Hmmm, possibly offensive, definitely cheesy

    When I hear the work "fracking".. I think of breaking rocks far under ground with high pressure water and chemicals to release methane and other gases for a fuel source... but again Im a bit in left field :)

    Not to be confused with "frag" and "fragging". This is when a fed up subordinate throws a grenade into his commanding officers quarters while he's asleep.

    Then again the experts will tell you that "Flip" and "Flipping" mean the same but they don't have the 'offensive' connotations. Probably because ending in 'p' gives it a softer sound.

    Fractals are frakking cool. The classic Mandelbrot set, for your ocular pleasure,...

    Hmmm, can't embed pics for some reason. Damn you IE, damn you.
