"the shit" is good or bad :it depends on the words around "the shit" so it can be the greatest or the worst.
also :"the" and "shit" can be connected by a value-adding subword like the GOOD shit or the SMELLY shit,thus automatically will change meanings...---->further info in eddy murphy's RAW (schoolexamples of urban language)
