Synonyms of "Darn" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Darn and altogether and You're darn right and You're altogether right. ?
A: I would not use either of those, darn sounds old-fashioned and altogether sounds too formal.

BUT the difference is:

darn = to express irritation
Did you vote for Trump?
-> You're darn right I did, and anyone like you who didn't is an idiot !!
(I would say 'You're DAMN right' or maybe 'You're FUCKING right')

altogether = to emphasize that you are "very" right
Trump is the worst President ever.
-> You're altogether right, I could not agree more. (Estoy totalmente de acuerdo)
(I would say 'You're SO right')
Q: What is the difference between "Darn, I forgot to eat it." and "Darn, I forget to eat it." ?
A: "Forgot" is simply the past of "forget."

These two works are another way of saying "didn't remember."

I forgot to eat breakfast --> I didn't remember to eat breakfast.

By using "forget" in the present, it's possible for there to be a nuance of "a trend" or a "habit." It's something that is happening now and seems to always happen.

I forget to eat breakfast --> I forgot to eat breakfast (and I seem to always forget!)

So, to me, saying "I forget to eat it" sounds normal, but it makes me think that there is a specific food that you have to eat every day but that you continuously fail to do; perhaps your vitamins (I forget to take them). Perhaps you fail to eat breakfast each way too often: "I forget to eat it."

Translations of "Darn"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? Darn it
