eatin' fetus: Protip: Most Florida haters are jealous of people that live there. The weather, women, and action can be a bit much for these types.


I live in San Diego.  Been high 70s low 80s for almost a week now, without the flying cockroaches, hurricanes, sinkholes, cubans, and humidity.

See! You all move to Dan Diego! Stay away from Northern California.  It's all earthquakes, hippies, fog, and homosexual gym instructors up here.

Is there any chance of enough of it burning off that the next hurricane will put the rest of it completely under water?

Aw 'come on.  It's not like it's texas.  Well except for the corrupt politics but other than that . . .

What a slogan,  "Florida, it's not like it's texas  .  .  .  "

Hope you enjoyed your overcast day in Indiana.

You're not going to impress many Californians with that argument.


Yea, Cali is good for all that too.

Ohshiat.

My brother lives in Ormond Beach, and Mom and my sister are visiting him this week.  Great, just farking great, I just hear of this now when it's too late at night to call and check on them.

OTOH, a few years ago, they had fires there that stopped just a mile short of my brother's house.  He has a small lake behind his house and helicopters were constantly flying in, dipping/filling buckets  from the lake like in the video clip, then dumping the water on the fires.

They are probably alright, but...

ModernLuddite: xaks: In 15 years living in south Florida, I can tell you this place ain't full of Floridians. This place is full of the worst from everywhere else, and a few Floridians.

This.

20 years growing up in Florida, and I only met 2 people from Florida other than me. It's ridiculous.

//It wouldn't be so bad if people respected Florida as their home.
///But they don't.
////And you can't have a society of people "just passing through". It ends.....well, you know how Florida turned out.


I'm a native Floridian. I left and would not choose to move back... unless the only other options were Texas or California....

I can say that after spending half my life in IN on Lake Michigan, then moving to FL, that I like this so much more.  In fact I've lived in FL more than IN now, and I still love it.  I don't care what you people think about this "wang" state, Yes, tonight will be in the mid 40's and may not break 70 tomorrow, but we had 80's just the other day.

I don't mind the heat and i'm just fine with the brief cold days we have.  My house is less than 1/4 mile from the Atlantic and I have no heat. I hated living closer to Lake Michigan during this time of year.  The snow drifts and cold arse wind blowing would make your bones cold.  I only worry now when my feet get cold.  I walk my dog with shorts and just a light jacket when it gets this cool here.

I will agree that FL deserves its own tag, but it is mainly from the influx of northern idiots that flock here for the warmth and possibility or work.  You won't find many true Floridians between Miami and Palm Beach, or on the left coast from Tampa to Ft. Meyers, but there are plenty in central and northern FL.

To what post was responding?

It's the dry season here.  Sometimes fires happen.  I can only hope there aren't fires near my house.

taxandspend: San Diego is full of gay porn actors


Ahh, that's why my love life sucks.  I thought it was my lack of income, poor hygene, inability to connect with others, and my motorboat reflex when seeing any (female) boobies over size 28B.

I knew a goth girl from Florida. Her name was Laura, and she was really farked in the head. But most goth girls are really farked in the head, and most goths have really low self esteem.

I guess being a goth from florida is a double whammy.

I've been in Ormond Beach since friday afternoon, so kick, replies etc.

No sign of a fire, no nothing. My uncle (whom I'm visiting for business, that's why I'm here) mentioned en passant that there was a brushfire "over there" (waving vaguely) as we came back from the Daytona airport, but other than that, no... No sign of any calamity.

I just went out for a look, the wind has died down, I can't see a smoke column in any direction. There's a bunch of trees blocking my view northward, maybe it's over there.

Not sure about that one. Palm Beach County seems to be where the assholes gravitate towards to when they move down there (Rush Limbaugh, Donald Trump, Mitt Romney's 47% gaffe was made at a private fundraiser held there, etc.)

I do like Sarasota and Naples though.

The good news is as long as you leave the TV and radio off you will never see or hear from the assholes you speak of.  They have their own private prisons over there on the island.  And we're fixing to close down one of the three bridges for a few years.

Sad thing is, I think Florida is better off than we are. We're pretty much the same socially, politics are slightly more liberal down there (Obama won it twice) and the weather is nicer.

Anytime Missouri makes the news, it's never a good thing (unless it's about the Cardinals).
