interesting article about the word "sucks"

I happened to look at this today and thought it was so interesting that it deserved a mention here. I've battled with my mother on the meaning of the word "sucks" so often, even in adulthood, that it is refreshing and wonderful to see someone write so intelligently about the origins and uses of this word. I personally never use it in professional settings, but it is so useful in my personal life. Yet when I do use it in front of my mother, she still makes a noise of disapproval. I plan to print it out and give it to her so she can see that I have no ill intent when I use this word. It's just so appropriate in some situations...
