: I am doing an English assignment on shit, I have heard a history of it meaning: Ship High In Transit. Does anyone know of any other meaning? Please get back to me soon as my project is due on Monday Dec.2, 2002. Thank you!!!!

In addition to the many interesting posts above I would like to add George Carlin's hilarious dissertation on S**t from thirty years ago, wherein he discusses numerous phrases containing the word and points out that we now use the term s**t to mean anything except its literal definition (defecation). I believe it was on his AM/FM album.
