halifax archaisms galore

"bedsit."

this was from a guest lecturer for intro to visual culture. but he's a british expat, so i don't know if that counts.

some very retro 'swear' words i've heard people use are:
"darn."
"dang it."
"gosh."
"gee."
"jesus h. christ."
"rats."
the last 2 are overheard from fellow university students. really.
i've heard "motherfucker" maybe twice since coming here.
