while on Cape Point watching the sea birds I learned a valuable lesson about shit.
the sea birds lay their eggs in their Guano. Guano was a very important and harvested fertilizer transported by ships. This ‘bird shit’ is nutrient and ammonia rich.
When loading a ship with guano the instructions were ”Store High In Transit”. Hence, S.H.I.T
became the slang for guano.
how did I get to this age and only found this out now?
