Funnies / A Happy Video / Interesting background to S.H.I.T.

Hi Folks

OK peeps we are heading southwards tomorrow morning and I must admit that I am really looking forward to getting away for a week or so, our first stop is at my sister and brother-in-law's in Dumfries and then on to England...... roll on Blackpool yayyyyy !!

Some one liners to keep you going ......

Remember.. Once you get over the hill, you'll begin to pick up speed.
Everyone has a photographic memory. Some, like me, just don't have any film.
I always know... God won't give me more than I can handle, there are times I just wish that he didn't trust me quite so much...
Never be too open-minded, your brains may fall out.
Some days are a total waste of makeup.
A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.
Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist change places.
Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away three weeks before you need it.
Learn from the mistakes of others. Trust me... you can't live long enough to make them all yourself. I've tried !

Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day...... the elder of the two picked out a box of tampons and proceeded to the checkout counter. The man at the counter asked the older boy, "Son, how old are you?" "Eight," the boy replied. The man continued, "do you know what these are used for?"
The boy replied, "not exactly, but they aren't for me. They're for him. He's my brother. He's four. We saw on TV that if you use these you would be able to swim and ride a bike. Right now, he can't do either."

If you're having a bad day this will surely make you feel better ... and put a smile on your face!! It was made in the Antwerp, Belgium Central (Train) Station on March 23, 2009, with no warning to the passengers passing through the station. At 8:00 am a recording of Julie Andrews singing 'Do, Re, Mi' begins to play on the public address system. As the bemused passengers watch in amazement, some 200 dancers begin to appear from the crowd and station entrances.

They created this amazing stunt with just two rehearsals!

I'm going to finish this post with some intelligent information ...... with believe it or not something which is not usually spoken about in delicate surroundings - but there again this blog is not within the boundary of what you would call delicate surroundings - so here goes !

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 methane.

Thus evolved the term " S.H.I.T. " or ( Ship High In Transport ) which has come down through the centuries and is in use to this very day.
You probably didn't know the true history of this word, neither did I so there ya go, you learn something new every day hehehe..... I mean, I was always under the impression that it was a golf term or at least a sporting term .....
