Origin d Modern thy Swear Words 1
**** - Certain types of manure used to be
transpired by ship. In dry form it weighs a lot
less, but once water hit it, it not only became
heavier, but the process of fermentation began
again, of which a buyproduct is methane gas.
As the manure was stored below decks
bundles, you can see what could (and did)
happen: mathan began to build up below decks,
and the first time someone went below deck at
night while at sea with a lantern, BOOM!
Several ships were destroyed in this manner
before it was discovered what was happening
After that, the bundles of manure were always
stamped with the label S. H. l. T. which meant to
the sailors to: "Ship High In Transit."
in other words, 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.

That is not true, **** is not an acronym

It comes from the proto-germanic word "skit" meaning to split, divide or seperate, and the old english word "scitte" meaning "to purge" in the form of excrement. The purging and splitting of excrement from the body

**** stands for Fornification Under Consent of King, if I'm not mistaken. I think it was used in the middle ages to avoid overpopulation of the kingdom.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but

The Origin of the Middle Finger

England vs. France, big war. England kicked France's ass, and cut all the middle fingers off the archers (because the middle finger is the strongest finger, it was the most vital for pulling back the string) and whenever English saw the French, they would stick out their middle finger (as in pouring salt in an open wound).

**** came from a sign that you needed to put on your door to get pregnant back in the middle ages. it read "Fornication (or something like that) Under Consent of King". shortened down to **** .
