How to Throw a Frisbee

Hold the Frisbee in your right hand if you are right-handed and your left hand if you are left-handed. Hold the Frisbee level so that it is parallel to the ground. Throw it using medium strength. If you throw it too soft, it will fall short of the person; too hard, they will have to chase it. You want the Frisbee to fly within arm's length of the recipient so that they can catch it easily.

Assuming that the wind is not too strong, if you tilt the Frisbee so that one side is higher than the other and then throw it just as you did before, you will notice that the Frisbee will fly in the direction that it is tilted. If the left side is lower, it will fly to the left. Likewise, if the right side is lower, the Frisbee will fly to the right. It helps to also throw the Frisbee upwards a bit because it will tend to dive faster than if it is thrown level.

Hold the Frisbee level and tilt it so that the front dips slightly towards the ground. Throw it with a lot of force. If the surface in front of you is flat and hard, like concrete, you can make the Frisbee strike the ground and then skip and fly upwards. This is a very cool effect if done correctly. The same can be done across water, but it helps to turn the Frisbee upside down first.

How to Find Things to do while in Myrtle Beach, SC

If you are planning a vacation to Myrtle Beach, SC, there are so many things to see and do. Here are a few of my most favorite attractions and restaurants. 

The first thing to do when planning a trip to Myrtle Beach, SC is to decide where to stay. Depending on the type of vacation and who’s going with you, there are a number of ways to enjoy Myrtle Beach. If your group consists of college-age folks who are ready to party, then the ideal place to stay is in Myrtle Beach. If you are taking your family and you would like a quiet vacation, then North Myrtle Beach will be more your speed.

Stop by the Myrtle Beach visitor’s center on your way in to the beach and pick up a free map and some coupon books. Drive towards the ocean until you find Highway 17. This stretch of highway runs mostly parallel to the shoreline all the way from Myrtle Beach to North Myrtle Beach. There is a 17 bypass that you will want to utilize if you are in a hurry to get from one beach to the other. If you want to cruise and show off your ride, stay on 17 business and take it slow.

When you get hungry, there are so many good restaurants to choose from. If you want seafood, many people recommend the Calabash restaurants. I enjoy a good rack of ribs and I find them every time at Damons Restaurant, which is located right on the beach. You can eat your meal at Damons while you watch the waves crash into the shore. Margarittaville Restaurant, which is owned by none other than Mr. Jimmy Buffett, will entertain you with your favorite Buffett tunes while you enjoy your meal and search for that lost shaker of salt. Speaking of Jimmy Buffett, if you are in the mood for an excellent burger, I highly recommend a little restaurant called “Cheeseburger in Paradise.” For dinner and a show, you could visit “Dixie Stampede” or “Medieval Times.”

For entertainment, look no further than Broadway at the Beach. This area includes restaurants, a movie theater, bars, dance clubs, and all sorts of fun things to do. My favorite bar is a little Irish pub in North Myrtle Beach called Molly Darcy’s. If you rent a condo at the Crescent Shores, it is right beside the pub, which means you have a short walk back to your room. For the best shopping experience, I recommend either Barefoot Landing or the Tanger Outlets. Don’t forget about golf and mini golf. Myrtle Beach is a golf player’s dream. There are so many courses to choose from, you could play a new one on every trip for years. The mini golf courses in the Myrtle Beach area are top-notch and include a variety of different themes.

How to Recover from the Worst Hangover Ever

After a fun night of partying and heavy drinking, you may end up with a little more than you bargained for. Fight the curse of the most terrible hangover by being prepared for it.

It is a good practice to drink water between alcoholic beverages, but this isn't always practical and as people get more and more intoxicated, alcohol seems more appealing than water, so we'll assume that you did not use a water buffer, but instead just woke up with a raging hangover induced by alcohol. The first step is not to panic.

Take two Excedrin Migraine pills. Take three pills if you are a large fellow and/or if the intensity of the hangover is severe. Wash these pills down with an entire can of Coca Cola. In addition to the pain relieving medicine, you have just given yourself a double dose of caffeine.

Lay down on your stomach in a dark, cool room. Place a small pillow or a rolled-up towel under your chest. This will cause you to breathe heavily while you sleep which will provide your brain with much-needed oxygen. Sleep for at least 30 minutes to an hour.  Wake up and immediately eat something. Enjoy the rest of your day, hangover-free.

How to Throw an Amazing Bachelor Party in Myrtle Beach, SC

Your buddy is finally going to tie the knot. When planning the bachelor party, you decide to go to Myrtle Beach, SC but you're unsure of what all there is to do there.

Decide which beach you want to stay in. Myrtle Beach is where many of the young people go to party, whereas North Myrtle Beach is a little more relaxed and family oriented. For a bachelor party, I'd choose Myrtle Beach.

Go play golf. Bring your clubs along and play one of Myrtle Beach's incredibly beautiful golf courses. Many of the hotels offer a golf package with your room. Be sure to pay for the bachelor's green fees and cart fees. Bring beer.

Go to a strip club. Take the guys to the famous Crazy Horse strip club, which is actually in North Myrtle Beach. Pay for the bachelor's alcohol and buy him a few dances.

Go on a gambling cruise. There are several cruises that leave from nearby beaches which feature alcohol and gambling when the boat reaches international waters. Bring along some motion sickness medicine. Even if you don't need it, someone will probably offer to pay you for a tablet if they know you have it. Play your earnings in a slot machine. Again, buy drinks for the bachelor. He can gamble his own money.

Buy some fireworks. In Myrtle Beach, it is illegal to have alcohol or projectile fireworks on the beach. Remember that they are both illegal. You've been warned.

Take the bachelor to eat at "Dick's Last Resort" restaurant and let the wait staff have their way with him. Don't get mad at the things they say or do. It's all part of the ambience of the restaurant.

Buy lots of beer and also buy a funnel at one of the local surf shops, like "Wings" or "Bargain Beachwear." Have fun!

How to Travel to Myrtle Beach, SC from Charlotte, NC

It's time to leave for that much anticipated trip to Myrtle Beach, SC. Your family and friends are all packed and ready to go. You begin your journey from Charlotte, North Carolina. What is the safest and fastest route to Myrtle Beach SC from Charlotte? There are so many ways to go, but which one is the best?

Take I77 south towards Columbia. You will pass Carowinds, Tega Cay, Rock Hill, SC and two rest areas. Take the exit for Highway 9, which is located just after the second rest area. At the top of the exit ramp, take a left, which will direct you onto Highway 9 south towards Lancaster.

Stay on Highway 9 bypass and then take Highway 903. Travel on Highway 903 until you get to the city of Mcbee, where you will find Highway 151. Watch your speed through Mcbee. The limit drops to 25mph and the police are very aggressive against beach travelers who speed through their town.

Take Highway 151 south towards Darlington which runs into Highway 52. When you reach Darlington, take Interstate 95 north and then the Highway 327 bypass, which runs into 76/301. This will eventually turn into Highway 501. If you are going to Myrtle Beach, Highway 501 will run straight to the beach. If you are going to North Myrtle Beach, take the exit for Highway 22. This will take you straight to the outlet mall in North Myrtle. From there, take Highway 17 north to continue to North Myrtle Beach.
