Word Ladder: North Carolina

Oh snap, Sporcle just published another one of my games!

Thanks to all you nerds that tested it back when I made it.

Red sky at night, Wolfpack’s delight…

Too bad all I see outside is 53,819 square miles of Carolina Blue.

No, the dream of the 1890’s.

The earliest “Charlotte Hornets” team on record was formed in 1892 and played one season in minor league baseball’s South Atlantic League. Another Charlotte Hornets baseball team appeared in 1902 and lasted in some form until 1973. The basketball team didn’t come until 1988.

The name didn’t come from nowhere. I found this on North Carolina Miscellany

During the American Revolution, General Cornwallis, experiencing staunch resistance from the citizens of Charlotte during his 1780 southern campaign, complained that the city was “a veritable hornet’s nest of rebellion.” This was publicized by proud Charlotteans, who nicknamed the city “The Hornet’s Nest.”

Devil’s Tramping Ground a wooded section of Chatham County, North Carolina. A forty foot in diameter circle, can be found there. Any objects that appear in the circle will mysteriously disappear or get moved from within the circle. No wildlife, vegetation, or inanimate objects can be found in the circle known as the Devil’s Tramping Ground. This phenomenon was first discovered in the early 1800s and is believed that Satan paces around this circle and ponders about ways to undo mankind..

boy scout troups have tried camping on it, and woken up in their tents a few miles away. Some guys tried to stay up all night in a tent on the spot, and later reported that a soft, soothing melodic voice lulled them to sleep and they too woke up a few miles away

#why is that so cute tho #like most of the time u hear about this shit and its like ‘they got their eyes clawed out or disappeared or died’#but this is like #’casually picks up your stuff and moves it somewhere else or gently sings you to sleep’ #like dang thats the most polite demonic circle ive ever heard of what a sweetheart

Yea, North Carolina has fucked all the shit up, but this is my home. It’s been my family’s home for 400 years. And I plan to keep it that way, to keep building my family and my community here.

We’re going to dig in and fight to make things right. Because that’s what it means to be a goddamn Tarheel.
