It's a reference to a member of this site who in his flounce thread claimed that he "ruin[ed] the soup."

I like my first answer better, but some people won't leave well enough alone.  ;D

My bullshitometer explodes on more or less a weekly basis. Plenty to trudge through in some circles.

Trying hard to develop a Bullshitometer high-speed emergency shunt. Been using http://www.creationism.org as a test but, so far, can't find a fast enough shit-switch.

Damn, there it goes again!!

Thank you, News God, whoever you are!  :grin:

I was trying to figure out how to say this in Spanish, in case I need it one day...
"Mi mierdometro acaba de explotar."  :P

Mierda has that connotation in Spanish? In Portuguese it's a little different, merda is more "shit" than "bullshit".

Mental note to self: add "besteirômetro" to vocabulary. :grin:

In the USA there is: Chicken shit: A worthless or contemptible person. Bullshit: A blatant lie. Horseshit: Being worse than bull shit. Regular human shit and I don’t know what other type of shit there is. Where I come from, when we say “Shit,” we mean, “Shit—just plain shit.” We don’t usually specify where it comes from. We could say, “mierda de toro,” or “bullshit” but this is only to specify where it comes from—literally. Mierda de toro would not be used as an insult, it wouldn’t make sense.

...So, term-o-metro...bullshit-o-meter...mierda, mierd-o-metro. ;D
I just made it up, I think it works.  :grin:

This is exactly the case in Portuguese as well, which I find interesting.

I thing "half assed" describes the amount of effort I'm going to be able to apply in my activities tomorrow. It's difficult to be a proper iron ass (cu de ferro*) while feeling pain or under the effect of pain meds.
