I hope to give up sharting.  Forever.  Period.

Lent is the time of year when someone, somewhere, mentions lent in passing, and I go "oh yeah, lent is a thing".
"Deferinate" itself appears to be a new word... though I'm perfectly carmotic with it.

I am giving up posting useless posts with no content, as well as pathetic attempts at humor.  :|

I'm giving up giving up.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means

Ah sharting... also known as the 'number three', particular with babies. I had to clean my little sister's shart and it had reached the back of her head. I get councelling about it every now and then...

Anyone know of the origins?
 1. And god made us in his perfect image - do you think god wipes his own arse when he sharts, or gets a host of angels to do it. Or better still, it magically disappears! A miricle!!

I think it originates from various uni's around the english speaking world. If you're not used to drinking beer the liquid poo that comes after a particularly successful bout can be a surprise.
The unwitting 1st year can mistake needing a runny poo for a fart and litterally shart (shit-fart) themselves. The contraction from shit-fart to shart is a natural evolution of language.

RE you question about god's sharts;
god will obviously do what is known as "angel poo" and will therefore never need to wipe.
