Unlike what might be considered standard, sometimes relatively boring, business metrics?
It’s a word for expressing a range of emotions, I mentioned in the Daily Post. Like when someone says “I’m doing my best, goddammit!” (That’s in the Cambridge Dictionary’s definition of ‘goddammit.’)
What a range of meanings the word can have!
A few days later, in another guest article, I mentioned… Just when I’m cantankerous and crusty, and proud of it, out of the blue, all of a sudden, I’m fixating on ‘goodness.’
Another word beginning with ‘G’.
And then, a day later, I was wondering… What if ‘goddammit’ were to become a metric, an amusing, super cool one — unlike what might be considered standard, sometimes relatively boring, business metrics.
Adding a word like ‘factor,’ might be necessary, calling it the ‘Goddammit Factor,’ or ‘Gdammit Factor, for short, so it will seem weightier.
The number of goddammits calculated, might help analysts assess public opinion of folks in the public eye, as it relates to the news engulfing them.
Many hundreds or thousands of ‘goddammits’ tabulated for various newsmakers… could that be a key metric? So, when someone’s wondering what’s up with so-and-so, who’s breaking news, so to speak, with lots of controversy? Who’s maybe messing around? Meddling around? Acting like a first-class… whatever… statisticians could simply pull up the individual’s Gdammit metrics, and weigh in… with weighty statistics.
