BitwiseShift: More people are traveling to Florida on Amtrak instead of flying to California.
Obscene_CNN: I'll drink to that!http://youtu.be/ACgJhE2L7Ms?t=46s
AverageAmericanGuy: I like to think that we here at Fark were in the vanguard when it came to identifying Florida as the retarded stepson of the states.

cartersdad: Professor Socky?Rollins College professor Socky O'Sullivan ......
beatmonkey: A lot of people who have never been to California don't realize that most of the state is Republican farm land. You can see home made billboards while driving up the valley, that say Get the US Out of the UN! , or I Didn't Vote For Obama!It's really just the major cities (and sant cruz, and humbolt, and..) where the majority of "crazy" people are. And a lot of those people have emigrated there from another state.

StopLurkListen: Whether he's writing fiction or journalism, Carl Hiaasen's main character is always Florida, that axis of weirdness that gave us the sagas of Elian Gonzales, and dimpled "chads." It's also where developers build homes around gravel pits advertised as "lakefront property," and where marijuana falls out of the sky.This is how Hiaasen describes Florida: "The Sunshine State is a paradise of scandals teeming with drifters, deadbeats, and misfits drawn here by some dark primordial calling like demented trout. And you'd be surprised how many of them decide to run for public office."
Grumpy Cat: It's too bad. If it weren't for the people, Florida would be a nice state. Same goes for the other states.
DrunkWithImpotence: Everything is illegal here in the Golden State. And we're all broke too. We do still have the Arcata Eye though, right?http://www.arcataeye.com/category/police-log/It seems we do.
