    Hi i often hear or read sentences ending like 食べないし、分からないし something like that.
    I wander, what does it stand for ?

    I guess I've heard in an anime that they kind of used that when they are enumerating something. It's like an informal use of to "and" particle? I dunno, but I'm pretty much sure that I've watched something using shi as a replacement of to, but maybe It was something that I've misunderstood. Please correct me about this, because I was thinking up until now that it was used like this.

    Nice. But they both are negation. Use 'or'.
    I don't eat (it), or I don't know. The last し, a conjunction, is just added again but doesn't have any significant suggestion.
