Manure...A True Story

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
but once water (at sea) hit it, it not only became heavier, but the process
of fermentation began again, of which a by product i s methane gas. As the
stuff was stored below decks in bundles you can see what could (and did)

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
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 " , (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.

Neither did I.

I had always thought it was a golf term

The ego is, however, represented as a general paralytic ( Iam not certain fotzen vidio what year we are actually in ).Thedeviation from memory, which handyprogramme is but a repetition of the former flightfrom perception, is facilitated also by the fact that, unlikeperception, memory does not possess sufficient quality to exciteconsciousness and thereby to attract to itself new energy.When I went to churchand saw a thin, blue, artificial flower, or a great sleepy cushionexpounding the beauty of holiness to pews full of eagles, half-eagles,and threepences, however adroitly schwulensex videos gratis concealed in broadcloth and boots:or saw an onion in an Easter bonnet weeping over the sins of Magdalen,I did not feel as they felt who saw in all this, not only propriety,but piety.I observed that these bottles had labels about theirnecks, and that these labels handylo were inscribed Kirschenwaesser.

I found out what SHIT means in a Presentation Skills workshop I videotaped; the speaker's topic was "benefits of dung in yard care." He had the class in stitches. I now know that he wasn't BS'ing the class LOL

Freud's views have also made a revision of all ethical and social valuesunavoidable and have thrown an unexpected flood of dolly buster picture light upon literaryand artistic accomplishment.Here, too, we are certainly dealing with the incomprehensible andrejected sexual feelings, which, if noted, would probably show atemporal periodicity, for an enhancement of the sexual libido hairy vagina mayjust as well be produced accidentally through emotional impressions asthrough the spontaneous and gradual processes of development.A portion of the infantile emotionshas been withheld from this procedure sperma zwischen den bruesten as useless to life, and all thethoughts which flow from these are found in the state of repression.The following is the dream of a youngman who in his fancy has already while in embryo lesben pics free taken advantage of hisopportunity to spy upon an act of coition between his parents.
