    wild new sh*t

    Does the following in red mean "something completely new"?

    Lewis and Clark were lost most of the time. If your idea of exploration is to always know where you are and to be inside your zone of competence, you don't do wild new shit. You have to be confused, upset, think you're stupid. If you're not willing to do that, you can't go outside the box.

    Thank you.

    New, exciting, going beyond boundaries, stuff not thought of before, etc.

    Please don't use swear words in titles- people who are young or may be offended can see them. Use **. I have edited the title.

    [not a teacher]

    "wild" suggests unfamiliar, or maybe extreme, in this case.

    FYI, I would be reticent to use the word "shit" unless I knew it was appropriate for the intended audience.

    I see.

    Thank you all.

    Yes. I'll be more careful when I have to quote those four-letter words from now on.
