Alternatives to our favorite forehead tattoo phrase
« on: September 01, 2016, 08:29:48 AM »
Since becoming a dudeist I believe most of all in the power of "Fuck it".  I however have tried not to say it in front of my little lebowski, not because I mind if he says it really but because I mind if other people hear him saying it especially when he starts going to school and has to deal with reactionaries there, doesn't need to be any harder for him than I know it already is.  He's a little achiever though and he's somehow picked up on the phrase anyway ????

So I was musing on alternatives to the actual words "fuck it" that express the same sentiment and was inspired to start a thread to crowd-source some more for those times we need to say it without saying it.

I'll start with "dash it all"... Said in the stodgiest British accent possible. And "bollocks to this" which is rarely understood in the states anyway.

Any ideas dudes?

How about "Fuhgedaboutit"?

Edit: Also gives you an option when you may get caught up in the moment, start saying "Fuck it", realise that a little person is nearby and have to change tack half way through.

The Buddhist's claim that the "om" has a particular and special significance.
But if it gets you to the same place I suppose you could say salami.
So does fuck it have a particular utility?
If it does then some of it owes to the fact that it is socially inappropriate.
So the question is if one bows to social expectations and says "oh darn it" when they really mean "fuck it" are they really fucking it?
In the parlance of our times.

I'd check out the Fuck it people if you seek enlightenment in this area.

Right on dude... I get what you mean.

I guess that's the one thing I still bow to: the idea that maybe kids shouldn't use inflammatory phrases, or any phrase really, before they can fully understand what it means.  Frankly the idea of my 3-year-old grasping the concept of "fuck it" and living accordingly warms my heart... the idea of him squawking it like a parrot because he heard me say it or even consciously saying it but as an act of aggression unprovoked against his mom, grands, or his friends, that will not stand man.  If he's going to abide and take it easy, I don't need to teach him something that will just cause more reactionaries to lash out at him.  But I guess it pisses me off when those same people would try to force him to learn the national anthem or the pledge of allegiance or any of that other mindless mantra bullshit before he's capable of realizing what he's reciting, so maybe it should be my goal to teach him to say "fuck it" first so he can be ready.

All that aside, I also just enjoy creative wordsmithing.  I'm digging all these responses and ideas the dudes have brought forth, but you have one limber fucking mind BikerDude, always pushing us to see the game for what it is.  The site's pretty far out too man!

Hope everyone can choose to feel the true nature of "fuck it" today even if saying it isn't the tactful choice in whatever company you happen to be.

Yeah raising kids is tough.
You have to teach teach them to walk the line at least for a while teaching them to keep an open mind.
Hopefully at a later point you will have given them the tools needed for critical thinking.
Until then we all nod and smile and teach them to play nice lest their asshole parents get all yuppie PC on your ass.

As for me, I learned an ancient Polish phrase 'chromolić to!'/~bugger it! from 70. from some movie with Daniel Olbrychski (and yes, the guy can say bad words, Polish and French, in an interesting way). The phrase is so outdated now nobody really cares. Other solution is to learn some curse words in languages like Greek or Hungarian. There are websites with this kind of stuff on the web.
