Okay, firstly, I didn’t say that; it’s a popular quote and is a perfect descriptor of how life can pan out, regardless of hopes, prayers and …. well, we all know. In fact, it is a fact of life and it doesn’t necessarily come with any warning on the packet.

I’m not a huge wikipedia fan but sometimes it is handy, as in the above definition/history of the quote.
‘Shit happens’ is an existential type of concept in the sense that, despite trying to be a good person and trying to make your own life work out in the hope that you can control its meanderings and tame the hardships into something manageable, you can’t always do that. I don’t think you can manage fate when it comes to bite you at the end of a life (Anthony).
It is possible, however, that you can manage fate at the beginning of a life (Ming). I don’t know.

Shit doesn’t always happen?
