(Huffington Post)   16-foot, 3500-lb. shark named Mary Lee spotted in the surf off of Jacksonville. Fortunately, nobody in their right mind would live or vacation in Jacksonville, so there's no danger   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 74

I submitted this last week with a better headline. Not bad for this vicinity.

FTFA:"Not every floating structure is a 'vessel'," Breyer wrote for the majority. "To state the obvious, a wooden washtub, a plastic dishpan, a swimming platform on pontoons, a large fishing net, a door taken off its hinges, or Pinocchio (when inside the whale) are not 'vessels'."

I love judicial humor ... haha.

Good name: Here lies the body of Mary Lee, died at the age of 103. For 15 years she kept her virginity. Not a bad record for this vicinity.

Jacksonville Beach, not Jacksonville. Lived in Jax in the 80s, the only place crappier was Jax Beach. On the plus side, Jax Beach was a good place to score weed.

Welp.  I've got the heavy fishing gear ready if they need the shark extracted.

It's pretty nice now with the new ampitheater and buildings.

CSB: watched a midget on a full size bike collide with a guy with no legs in a wheelchair outside the old Crab Pot. Possibly the most awesome thing I have ever seen.

The beach has been cleaned up and it's a pretty nice place to visit now. It's more adult oriented and the beach area has some nice places to eat and shop. The downtown area has a great wine bar and some really nice places to eat as well. In July I was almost exactly where that shark was.. Probably about 10 feet north and a little closer to the pier.

Uh, I know that they're trying to be clever and combine "ocean" with "research", but how the hell do yo pronounce that company name?

Jax Beach has one good night club called the Shim Sham Room because it is owned by a couple from LA.

The rest of Jax beach is for drunks, rednecks, and navy wives out throwing their tails around while husbands are at sea.

Jax has a good urban scene with the Burrito Gallery, Dos Gatos, riverside and springfield.

Other wise the town is a hole, and you can score weed everywhere.

Living in jax isn't as horrible as all that. I've lived in far worse places. But let's all act like your crap town is better! I'm sure your bikini girls look much better reclining on your beaches...

\paid less for my awesome house in Jax than D-bags pay for their import cars

Have lived in the Jacksonville beaches area for 17+ years now, after living for a while in the hellhole known as Ohio. All those taking shots at Jax are either a) jealous, or b) severely retarded. The only real problem I've found is that as time goes on, more and more people move here instead of going to the Compton of the east coast, Miami. Gotta go now, it's 80 degrees and I'm riding my motorcycle to the beach. Haters gonna hate.

Yeah, but the NFL team sucks. And having lifeguarded in Fernandina for a few years, I'd say the beach scene isn't so great. More whales than otters, if you know what I mean.

Agreed. Love Jacksonville -- been here six years, moved from dirty Jersey.

When Navy men go off to sea, is it just assumed that their wives are going to cheat on them?
 
2013-01-16 11:48:54 AM  
I grew up in Atlantic Beach - fun childhood but once I hit high school I could not wait to get the fark out of there. Now that I only have to be there for holidays I appreciate its strange charms. I mean, what's not to love about getting hit on by 85 year old ex-cons at Pete's Bar on a Tuesday night?

Also the water there is usually really cloudy, so I stay out of it. If a 16-foot great white is going to eat me alive screaming I at least want to see it coming.
 
2013-01-16 11:59:21 AM  
I enjoyed Jax while I lived there. If it weren't for Atlanta, it would be the biggest city in all of Georgia.

While I would never claim Jacksonville is nowhere close to heaven on earth, I would agree that its better than a lot of places.

I grew up not far from the Navy base in Bremerton WA. On the night a ship would go out, the bars would be packed with slightly obese women. They were called the Bremalo. I think there is something in the Naval culture where you just kinda get a pass for messing around.
