Exactly how much is a shit load?

2. It's the metric equivalent of
a buttload.

3. Generally, more than an assload, but less than a fuckton.
Amounts vary.

The exact amount of a "shitload" varies widley between context and culture. Here is the breakdown:

Standard English Shitload = 1007
Metric Shitload = 1000
Baker's Shitload = 1008
Binary Shitload = 1024


of course there's the matter of how many shitloads in a buttload, or a fuckload:

Standard English: Fuckload = 4 Buttloads = 8 Shitloads
Metric: Fuckload = 10 Buttloads = 100 Shitloads
Baker's: Fuckload = 5 Buttloads = 9 Shitloads
Binary: Fuckload = 1024 Buttloads = 1048576 Shitloads

6. It's heavier than a crapload, but with less density.
You can carry a shitload in the bed of a pick up, but for a crapload you need a forklift.

29. Be still my heart



...I could never aspire to achieve the greatness of the "kudzu" thread.

That would have been a great smilie....and if anyone has one it will someone in the Lounge Area.
