History of the word shit! May. 14th, 2006 @ 10:55 PM Reply

In the 16th and 17th centuries, sailors would transport fertilizer across the sea to, obviously, bring to other areas of the world to put nutrients in the soil.

One day, water was accidently poored into the cargo hold of all the fertilizer. This created Methane Gas. On this particular day, a man brought down a lantern and the whole ship exploded. After that accident, they would make sure the fertilizer was below in the lower decks. They made sure no water entered any part of the cargo hold in the low decks. This procedure was called "Ship High In Transit(or Transport, one of the two)."

Obviously, this led to the acronym S.H.I.T. This would evolve into what we use today.

its an anglo-saxon word meaning poop. it first fell out of social grace whene the normans invaded England and brought with them french language. since the ruling class looked down on the native anglo-saxon speakers, shit as well as fuck (also anglo-saxon) Became taboo.

No, that's a backronym. If you want to know the actual origin of the word, rather than some made-up acronym, read this.

Google up the origin of the word 'shit'. Or go to urban dictionary to find out. That place is awesome. I found out what a dookie was!
