Wildwood / Philadelphia - The "F"word actually means "to strike or to "soldier"Curious how it was labeled otherwise.The "F" word has been in existence since the 1300's and was never used as a swear word .In fact, it was the opposite ,a word used in place of calling a person an idiot so as not to hurt someone.It just takes one person to make up something like a word to spread like wildfire.College teaches us many useful facts from history.
