Slang term in the UK, Australia and some other Commonwealth countries. Very, very common. Is NOT the alternative to "fucking" because it is more in the range of offense to "damn".
Used before a word to make it more angry, appealing, exaggerative, etc.
"Bloody hell!! That's great!!"
Archaic swearword originating in England, originating from the even more archaic phrase 'By God's blood', but nobody really knows that or cares. DOESN'T mean 'fucking' you screwheads.. We use that word too!

very mild swearword used mainly in Uk but also very common (I am told) in Austrailia. Can be used before or in the middle of words/phrases to emphasize meaning - be it good, sarcastic or bad. It really does sound silly when americans say it - think about it, it's the equivalent to a brit saying 'mall' or 'nimrod
' It's just not right. try saying some of these in an american accent for amusment (really no offence look at brit's saying sidewalk and math - equally amusing!).
bloody good idea (well done! good thinking)

or my personal favourite 'abso-bloody-lutely' (yeah innit)
a very mild swear word with multiple meanings. adds emphasis to basically anything you want it to, most often put before words, or in the middle of them. also often means annoying. has absolutly NO effect when said by americans.
