English lessons.

The clause 'I shat myself' implies that (coarseness not withstanding) 'I went to the toilet' can be reasonably substituted with 'I shat the toilet'.

Agree/disagree?

EDIT: I'd actually love a technical explanation to why this isn't the case without reference to multiple meanings/functions of words.

Disagree.

And you didn't go to the toilet. If you had gone to the toilet, you wouldn't have shat yourself, you would have taken a shit (in the toilet). You shat yourself, and that explains the sticky mess in your undergarments.

Disagree. Why? Because "I shat the toilet" leaves a few questions. For instance, did you shit on the toilet, like not in the toilet bowl. Maybe the sides or the lid.

On the other hand, if you said, "I shat in the toilet", then I can assume you meant you used the toilet bowl to catch your douche.

This is the guy to talk to when it comes to English. He was usin' words like "non-sequiter" and shit like "ad hominem" when he was passive aggressively attacking me in one thread. He knows his language arts.

Disagree. "I shat the toilet" sounds like you shat out a toilet.

Passive-aggressively defending myself, I think you'll find

*Non sequitur

Stock Latin phrase, no need for hyphens.

I'm also barely passive-aggressive.

'I shat myself' implies that you soiled yourself. 'I shat the toilet' implies that you excreted a toilet.

Good response, however you'd imagine the stock phrase in English word then be: 'I shat on myself', aye? Or am I mistaken?

Unless he is trying to communicate phonetically his stupid accent, where shit sounds like shat.

Unnecessarily specific. There's only one way to shit yourself.
