Check out the new book, LIZARD MAN: THE TRUE STORY OF THE BISHOPVILLE MONSTER, which is an in-depth account of everything surrounding the famous Lizard Man case. More info here: http://www.lyleblackburn.com/lizardman
As a cryptozoologist myself, having graduated from a college in California that actually teaches this subject in great depth, I am inclined to say that no pictures also means something else about the creature. Most cameras use infrared beams to detect the presence of moving objects to take the picture. It is obvious that this creature and Bigfoot and a few others can see in the infrared range and therefore avoid the camera all together. There was mention a few months back in August of 2013, that the creature had been shot and that blood samples sent to a lab came back as "Not human, unknown origin." The lab refused to say anymore about the samples and nothing more has been said.
People don't realize how adaptable the human genome really is; as long as there are four strands of DNA present and somewhere near 46 total chromosomes, we can be bred with any number of creatures on this planet.
The Old Slave Mart Museum is a great museum in Charleston. It is a rare find and is worth the trip. Keep in mind that many visitors have said it can be a challenge for young children. There is a lot of reading involved. One aspect that seems lost is the role free blacks had in owning slaves. Additionally, most slave were caught by other Africans. Few know that there was slavery in Africa long before the transAtlantic slave trade. http://www.oldslavemartmuseum.com
Many, many students at COFC major in PBR . Its a well known fact that we are nearly the drunkiest drunkalots in the USA here in the Chuck. COFC was simply beaten out by the NYU crowd at the Fat Cat because they have more students. Do not take this lightly, its time to show those Yankees what we are made of. Order that extra PBR at RR next time and show those New Yorkers exactly what we are made of.
Reminds much of Captain Harry's Blue Marlin. Harry, Andy Watson and Bubbie Stone had a painting crew which operated in a piece of a warehouse on Cumberland across from the Magic Mart (I think it's called the Li'l Cricket today).
In the Summer of (I think) '77, after work, they used sit on coolers filled with Bud. Folks, black painters and Broad Street lawyers would drop by and chip in for cases of beer.
One afternoon, someone said, "Hell, Harry, you ought to open a bar."
For months all he served was 50 cent Bud out of coolers behind the bar.
Sound like Chis did the same thing. Harry got obliterated by the Riley machine (Harry's is now The Lodge Alley Inn -- long story that).
Chris doesn't have to worry. Ain't nobody drawing a bead on that spot.
Congrats, Boston!!! Huge BoxSox fan!! Hope they sweep it.
Hope you do, too.
It was bars with DJs. Then cocktail joints. Now beer gardens this year. Whatever was hot in NYC last year will be Charleston's fad next year.
Hope at least a few of these beer gardens survive. Or are we gunning for Conde Naste "Most Beer Gardens per Capita 2014"?
I love all these new beer joints, but if the price of the brew is so high that one cannot afford to buy the stuff, then why have it in the first place? I know all about the price point thing, but some of these places are charging like they are in NY or Chicago or London. Please, guys, give us a break and the cute thing of serving yourself only lends itself to spending a lot more than you planned, and when you get your bill, you will not return. I like local breweries just as much as the next guy, but when it starts to go over $5.00 for a pint, then you have crossed "the line" where expensive outweighs "good".
"Combining Bavarian food with Southern??? Are you kidding me??? No! I am German. It does not work. How about being authentic and educating the people down here with some great Baravarian food??? You would be surprised that they will like it. You can get southern food anywhere in this town."
I would love to see authentic German food in Charleston, but I can see why they are trying a fusion. I won't judge until I try it.
How am I supposed to take those fools at Bay Street Biergarten seriously? They don't even have beards or look like they hate the world. Shit, they can't even cross their arms to indicate they mean business.

It might be useful to know that Upper King and Hampton Park Terrace both have good public transit connections to C of C. You can check any address for available public transit services online now using Google. http://busec.org/bustracker-unleashed/
Money Man Pawn on Meeting is the 1st place to go to buy a bike in town
I've never heard of a grapple before. Will eating one harm me?
They look like twins.
My cousin Jackie looks beautiful in the pictures. I am very happy for the two of them.
I bet their parents are happy...
I love these girls. :) I'm so excited and happy for them! Congrats Bekkah and Jackie! Free growler fill on me, girls!
As Ron says, Jewish broads are great, but I must confess that I have no experience with Jewish lesbians.
I'm very happy for them, and would like to help celebrate by treating them to a delicious meal at the Folly Road Huddle House™.
Jewish Lesbian 's.....nice!
I love me some Jewish broads. Best of luck ladies!
