    Re: what the heck

    1. Heck is a euphemism for hell.

    2. They're both colloquial and should not be used in formal language. Heck is milder than hell.

    3. It is the same as "what the hell".

    4. Difference: see point 2.

    Re: what the heck

    not a teacher

    There's many variations.
    What the hey...
    What in the Sam Hill...
    What in blazes...
    What in the name of God, is that?
