    ONE IS NEVER TOO OLD TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW!



    Manure : In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything for export had to be transported by ship. It was also before the invention of commercial fertilizers, so large shipments of manure were quite common.
    It was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it, not only did it become heavier, but the process of fermentation began again, of which a by-product is methane gas. As the stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did) happen. Methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern, BOOOOM!
    Several ships were destroyed in this manner before it was determined just what was happening.
    After that, the bundles of manure were always stamped with the instruction ' Stow high in transit ' on them, which meant for the sailors to stow it high enough off the lower decks so that any water that came into the hold would not touch this "volatile" cargo and start the production of methane.
    Thus evolved the term ' S.H.I.T ' , (Stow High In Transit) ,.............
    "So it's really not a swear word"which has come down through the centuries and is in use to this very day.
    You probably did not know the true history of this word.
    Neither did I.

    GOD Bless

    That is fascinating. Just think how long it would take for information like this to be disseminated without the net.
    Wonder if SHTF grew out of this also
    Dried cow manure is infinitely preferable to fresh stuff.
    Every year a few tourists are lost due to accidentally stepping into fresh cow pies and disappearing into the green depths.

    Well, S.H.I.T., worldtalker, I had no idea. I'll have to use the term more freely. Thanks,


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    Isn't a meadow muffin like horse apples? Cow pies can be huge but they are definitely pies.
    Before I would eat a worm there would have to be something worthwhile on the line

    Buffalo chips? Think it was called that. Burning them for fuel was a thing.
