History can be an interesting subject

Manure... An interesting fact
Manure: In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be
transported by ship and it was also before commercial fertilizer's
invention, so large shipments of manure were common.
It was shipped dry, because in dry form it weighed a lot less than
when wet, but once water (at sea) hit it, it not only became 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 term
'Ship 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

Thus evolved the term 'S.H.I.T ' , (Ship High In Transport) 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.

See Mom, it isn't a bad word

Just like the story of the "F" word. In medieval times couples had to get permission to have intercourse, and when they did, they would hang a sign on the door that said "Federally Under Consent of the King" Later abbreviated as the acronym we all know today.
