It's easy. All you have to do is look at each letter individually, and assign it a meaning. Then string them together.

And that, ladies and gents, is why I'm not a teacher :lol:

(Seriously, I have no idea what this thread is either. Le Bete sounds like it should be French. But spelled correctly.)

Episode 80 was very good, but I'm surprised that the rumor featured in Fortean Times 140 that Count Jan Potocki (Author of "The Saragossa Manuscript") shot himself with a silver bullet in 1815 didn't make it into the timeline.

See: http://web.archive.org/web/20020811153132/http://forteantimes.com/articles/140_potocki.shtml

And in a nitpick didnt "The Wolfman" come out in 1941, I could have sworn I heard the host say it came out in 1944?

And finally a collection of Werewolf tales dating from 1913 I found on Project Gutenberg, this one discusses exorcising a Werewolf and has some rather interesting takes on how to become one.

Werwolves, by Elliott O'Donnell

We're in the MonsterTalk subforum. They're talking about the latest episode A Wolf in the Fold about la bête du Gévaudan (the beast of the Gévaudan).
