I crossed the Congaree River via the Gervais St. bridge on foot for the first time in 1999 to see Stretch Arm Strong play a show at The New Brookland Tavern during a Free Times Music Crawl.  At the time I was a sophomore living in Preston Residence Hall on the Horseshoe at USC. I've now worked at New Brookland for more than a decade and have worked as a contributing photographer to the Free Times for half a decade and have crossed that bridge on a run, walk or bike ride over a thousand times. Believe me, it's much more interesting when you aren't in a car.

I now live and work in West Columbia (home of the notorious poster police) and I'm spending more time exploring the banks of the three rivers that junction just above the Gervais St. Bridge. So when they started to rise a few days ago, I decided to observe the process of a monster that was heaving 60,000 cubic feet of water per second on it's eastbound route to the Atlantic Ocean. Typical discharge based on 73 years of data collection is around 9,000 cubic feet per second. You do the math. It's a beast.

A new crowdfunding site was also created by child pornographers, who set a target amount for a video, then released it when they reach their goal.

The findings of this study have raised serious questions about the Dark Web's dark subcultures. For example, after Owen's study ended, the FBI and Europol busted three of the largest anonymous online drug markets. However, the takedowns of these sites didn't mention the presence of pedophilia videos.
