The rudest language on Earth

100 % OC

Danish - The rudest language on Earth
In Denmark in the 1950' s and 60' s,
when the youth was rebelling, people
thought they were going to lose
touch with the younger generation,
so the entire Danish language was
revised. This resulted in that the
language today sounds incredibly
rude to foreigners. The reason for this
is we removed all formal titles from
our language. No "sir", "madara", "miss",
or anything of the sort. Everytime we
talk to someone, we speak as we
would to a friend, or an acquaintance,
by speaking directly to eachother,
instead of using a lot of" chitchat".
This is what I love most about it, that
no one needs to feel inadequate
when speaking to someone. No one
are called Dr. somethingsomething,
and everyone is on a first name basis
with oneanother. In fact, the only
ones not normally referred to by their
first name, is the Royal Family.
This was my first post about my country and it' s quirks.
I' d love to tell you more, so tell me what you think!
d, + 50 for more

I'm from Serbia, and it's really common for someone to exclaim 'jebem ti majku' when they're angry, upset, etc. It literally translates into "I'm 						*******					 your mother." It's such a commonplace phrase though that whenever I get into 						****					 with my mom she says 'jebem ti majku' to me. She honestly doesnt know whats weird about saying it no matter how many times I try to explain it

Sounds like a better system to me.

More social, less formal, more in touch with on another. It's everything that's missing from this generation of social media's, which serves more to keep others comfortably at an arms length.

In Denmark, getting a PhD or an MD isn't enough to earn the title of "Doctor" (even if we don't actually use the title anymore).   
   
You have to defend the work you have done during your career (Usually about ten years after you get your PhD), to others in your field. If you pass, you inherit a ring from a doctor who died (they don't just make more, you have to wait for someone to die before you can apply).   
   
MFW foreign people who got a PhD in something pathetic demand I call them doctor

same in norway.
my american ex's dad looked pretty surprised when i called him by his first name the first time i met him.
but to me it was completely natural, and i didn't get why he was so shocked untill later when my ex mentioned it.

the royal family doesn't have a last name so you can't really adress them otherwise

i know the norwegian royal family is named "Rex" (latin for king)

Haakon was a danish prince, coming to Norway to become king in 1905, i assume he held the same name as his grandchildren.
Further assuming that the danish royal house is also called "Rex" isn't a long shot, even if it might not be right.

I'd also like to note that formal titles are just as gone from Norwegian language, but i've never heard about a revision to the language like in the content.
I kinda wish they weren't completely gone, as it makes it hard to have domination/submission roleplay without using English, or awkward and almost archaic Norwegian words

"Thanks for my prostate exam Dave.."


I dunno, seems a bit too casual.



Also, there would be no Dr. Acula, which is sad..

Society and therefore freedom doesnt benefit from stupid people doing stupid things. Naming things hastagnignog or North West is too 						*******					 retarded to be allowed in a country with an IQ above a doorknob.
