In the 16th and 17th centuries, everything had to be transported by ship and it was also before commercial fertilizers were invented.
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 gets to it, it not only became heavier, but the process of fermentation begins.
This produces an explosive by-product called methane gas. As the cargo was stored below deck in bundles it quickly became a lethal bomb. Methane began to build up below decks and the first time someone came below at night with a lantern... BOOM!
Several ships were destroyed in this manner before the cause was discovered. After that, the bundles of manure are 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 reactive cargo and start the production of methane.
Thus evolved the term 'S.H.I.T,' (Ship High In Transit) 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.

This is actually just an urban legend chien.
Shit is evolved from old English/German if you study linguistic and etymology
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

There's another one related to S.H.I.T.
Memo to all employees:
In order to assure the highest levels of quality work and Productivity from employees, it will be our policy to keep all employees well trained through our program of SPECIAL HIGH INTENSITY TRAINING (S.H.I.T).
We are trying to give our employees more S.H.I.T than anyone else. If you feel that you do not receive your share of S.H.I.T on the course, please see your supervisor. You will be immediately placed at the top of the S.H.I.T list and our supervisors are especially skilled at seeing you get all the S.H.I.T you can handle.
Employees who don’t take their S.H.I.T will be placed in DEPARTMENTAL EMPLOYEE EVALUATION PROGRAMS (D.E.E.P.S.H.I.T).
Those who fail to take D.E.E.P.S.H.I.T seriously will have to go to EMPLOYEE ATTITUDE TRAINING (E.A.T.S.H.I.T). Since our supervisors took S.H.I.T before they were promoted, they don’t have to do S.H.I.T anymore, and are all full of S.H.I.T already.
If you are full of S.H.I.T you may be interested in a job teaching others. We can add your name to our BASIC UNDERSTANDING LIST of LEADERS (B.U.L.L.S.H.I.T).
For employees who are intending to pursue a career in management and consulting, we will refer you to
the department of MANAGERIAL OPERATIONAL RESEARCH EDUCATION (M.O.R.E.S.H.I.T). This course emphasizes how to manage M.O.R.E.S.H.I.T
If you have further questions, please direct them to our HEAD OF TEACHING, SPECIAL HIGH INTENSITY TRAINING (H.O.T.S.H.I.T).
BOSS IN GENERAL,
SPECIAL HIGH INTENSITY TRAINING (B.I.G.S.H.I.T)
P.S. Now send this S.H.I.T to 5 people who need S.H.I.T in their life, just not the same person who sent you this S.H.I.T. They have already had their fill of S.H.I.T.
Thank you for your time!
The Director Under the Main Bureau of Super High Intensity Training.
