    Things you should know if you come to visit South Carolina.....

    Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.

    There are 5000 types of snakes, and 4998 live in South Carolina.

    There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in South Carolina, plus a couple that nobody has seen before.

    Squirrels will eat anything.

    Unknown critters love to dig holes under tomato plants.

    Raccoons will test your crop of melons and let you know when they are ripe.

    If it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites

    A tractor is NOT an all-terrain vehicle. They do get stuck.

    Onced and Twiced are words.

    It is not a shopping cart, it is a buggy.

    Fire ants consider your flesh a picnic.

    People actually grow and eat okra.

    "Fixinto" is one word.

    There ain't no such thing as "lunch." There's "dinner" and then there's "supper."

    Sweet tea is appropriate for all meals, and you start drinking it when you're two.

    "Backards and farards" means, "I know everything about you."

    "Jeet?" is actually a phrase meaning "Did you eat?"

    You don't have to wear a watch because it doesn't matter what time it is.

    You work until you're done or it's too dark to see.

    You know you're from South Carolina if:
    1. You measure distance in minutes.
    2. You've ever had to switch from heat to air conditioning in the same day.
    3. You see a car running in a store parking lot with no one in it no matter what time of the year.
    4. You use "fix" as a verb. Example: I am fixing to go to the store.
    5. All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, grain, insect or animal.
    6. You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.
    7. You carry jumper cables in your car.. for your OWN car.
    8. You know what "cow tipping" is.
    9. You only own four spices: salt, pepper, Texas Pete, and Duke's mayonnaise.
    10. The local papers cover national and international news on one page and six pages for local gossip and sports.
    11. Your think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday.
    12 You find 100 degrees Fahrenheit "a little warm."
    13. You know all four seasons: almost summer, summer, still summer, and Christmas.
    14. Going to Wal-mart is a favorite past time known as "Goin'wal-martin" or "Off ta ' Wally World'."
    15. You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good pinto-bean weather.
    16. A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola, or pop...it's a Coke, regardless of brand or flavor. Example:
    "What kinna coke you want?"
    17. Fried Catfish is the other white meat.
    18. You understand these and forward them to your friends from SC (and those who just wish they were)

    Went to South Cacalakie for Labor Day weekend 1994. I was sober driving there on Friday. I was sober driving back to GA on Sunday. I was drunk in between. Had ringside seats to the Royal Rumble inside Desperados. Found out that even self-respecting Southerners eat instant grits, contrary to "My Cousin Vinnie."

    That's all I remember...........................

    Man, every thing is fried in the Low Country. The Oreos are pretty good but you need to try the fried Nutter Butters.

    Not sure what you are gettin at but i thought everyone woke up in the mornin and got a glass of sweet tea with thier breakfast. Fla, lower miss, la and lousy anna have alot more snakes than the carolinas. And ifin you didn't know ga has been always the #1 maker of homemade liquer. Not one of them northern hilly states like tenn or carolinas. At work they are talkin bout sending me on anther trip to clevland but they ain't got long cause i ain't goin ifin there is snow on the ground. Hell snow on the ground is a good in nuff reason to lay out of work. And near 4 days with no swet tea. :doah: a person can go through withdrawl :eek1: . Had to drink enough bud light draft to make up the differences.
