43 Things You Probably Don’t Know About South Carolina

38 posts in this topic

http://www.movoto.com/sc/south-carolina-facts/

Some of my favorites are:

3. South Carolina produces more peaches than anywhere in the country, except California. Take that, Georgia.

(anything we can beat Georgia in I'll take)

5. South Carolina is the birthplace of barbecue. This can be debated, but the Indians were pit-cooking hogs centuries ago off the coast - or so the story goes.

(Proof that only South Carolina BBQ is the only real BBQ)

9. The first game of golf played in the U.S. took place in Charleston, SC.

15. It’s illegal to fish with a yo-yo or dynamite in the fine state of South Carolina.

(Yo-yo?)

23. South Carolina is the state with the lowest percentage of women in state legislature. In 2012 the state only had 10% women in its legislature, while the national average is 23.7%

(Screw you women) j/k

You take a devise,spring operated coil in a small wheel,it has a line wound around it.

You attach it to a limb,tie a hook to the line,bait the hook,lower it into the water and when a fish hits it the device recoils and pulls the fish up.Set several of the out and drink beer and retrieve the the caught fish and rebait.

These are sold in bait shops.

Mcdonalds catches square fish

Have you ever wondered what kind of fish that is exactly? You've got catfish, bream, talipia, grouper, flounder, sword. I mean, come on, what is it? Fish is a pretty generic term.

While someone being a 'yo-yo virtuoso' might be kinda lame, I would be very impressed by anyone who can actually fish with only a yo-yo.

Damn right.

Disgruntled SEC fans left in my wake, across four states.

I still can't wait to meet up with the two Kentucky fans that told me I was a dumbass for thinking UF could beak UK in basketball this year.

I've seen Hispanics at the river fishing with a can..cast with it and everything. You only have to buy license if you are using a rod.
