It may be hard to believe, but a study says it's true.
New Hampshire residents curse like sailors on the phone, according to analysis by the Marchex Institute. New Hampshire didn't make the list of the top five states that swear the most or the five that swear the least. But the study did place residents in the "Sailors" category along with about a dozen other states, indicating that its residents curse more often than people who live in most other states.

One drink could be the standard for drunken driving – at least for some people, if the National Transporation Safety Board has its way.
