What does "Full of Shit" mean to you?

When someone is accused of being full of shit, does that imply that they are being intentionally dishonest, or simply that they don't know what they are talking about?

IMO, it means they are being intentionally dishonest while knowing that the person they are lying to knows they are being dishonest.

I disagree. I don't think it's such a damning accusation as intentional dishonesty. For example, I think that RGS really and sincerely believes the things that he posts even though he's full of shit most of the time.

again, i agree. not necessarily regarding RGS, but generally speaking, anyone who spews BS can be considered to be FOS.

The key is whether or not they know they are spewing BS or if they actually believe it's true. Ravi says they know, I say they're just ignorant.

I'm not sure if I'd consider it a damning accusation. Sometimes people lie just to be troublemakers or for a prank. It's like being full of blarney.

In your case it means you are a liar. But it could mean many things depending on Context and what it was in response to.

Yes, but they have to know it's BS, imo.

So if I ever call you FOS, you should be flattered, no? Wouldn't you rather be thought a liar than stupid?

That depends on the particular circumstance to be honest.

I think we've certainly established that much.


When I think someone is lying, I usually call them a lying sack of shit. When I think they're just ignorant, I usually say they're full of shit.
