I spent a summer in Florida when I was 12....I don't plan on a repeat.

/Love vacationing in "The Sunshine State".
//But living there?

brantgoose: Florida is built on a Seminole Indian burial ground?


Close, but not quite.

They intended to build Florida on Seminole land, but mistakenly built it on a Seminole landfill.

There's a few excellent documentaries on youtube showing European history in the united states, particularly the french and spanish fighting over territorial claims and violating treaties.  This is well before the british colonies were established.

Also some concrete proof that Vikings landed in newfoundland to new york well before any other Europeans did

When I was a little kid and we lived in Texas, if it was summertime, and I had friends over (or the reverse), we always played inside.

Proof that Mother Nature likes to f*ck with me:

I flew down to Jacksonville back in December (from Seattle).  Getting away from our usual/shiatty winter weather was going to be a treat...but on the day I arrived....mid 40s and rainy....just like back home.  Blech.

This is a variation on my theory that the reasons most surfers are "whoa bro" stupid, is because they spend so much time in the salt water it does something to their brains.

Some 20 years ago, my husband and took up one of those deals where you have attend some sales pitch for a time share for an hour and in return we got 3 nights free in Ft. Lauderdale, a couple in the Bahamas*, 3 nights in Orlando and 3 nights in Las Vegas.

We rented a car in Ft. Lauderdale and drove to the Keys, that was awesome.   The days spent in Orlando were horrible for us.  This was February and we were dripping sweat.   Farking February. The only enjoyable time we had there was driving over to the Kennedy Space Center.  Which is all kinds of wonderful.   And the beach weather eased that humidity.

We had enough of Florida, thanks so much.

CSS: *A small older cruise ship took us from FtL ti Nassau.   It was a beautiful thing, christened by the Queen and quite nice.  And we were the only ship in port at the time.  That was a lucky and fantastic thing.  We spent most of our time with the locals.

Years later, was watching Michael Palin's travel show about the Himalayas (I think).  It was the last show and he was down on some Bangladeshi beach where ship breaking took place.   Right behind him was that ship.   I felt very sad.

Out of all the 50 states in this country, Florida is my least favorite. Oh, it has nothing to do with the heat/humidity or the fact that 1/3 of the state is a giant amusement park, or the fact that its a magnet for hurricanes, and retired northerners who can't handle the snow anymore or that it rains exactly at 4PM every day for 5 minutes and clears up automatically or the fact that there are 'gators, and the bottom 1/2 of the state is one giant marsh or that US 1 goes from Miami, CROSSING THE GOD-DAMNED Ocean to Key West. ( no road should travel above a body of water like that)

No it's not that, it's also not the fact that Florida can't make a decent pizza or bagel, or the fact COPS TV has 31 seasons featuring Broward County cops doing their thing, it doesn't matter that Miami is the cocaine capital of the US.  No, none of those things is why I dislike Florida.

I just dislike any state that looks like a penis.

Hottest average temp. by state = Floriduh 70.7
Second is Hawaii. 70.0
Hawaii doesn't get farked on so,
What do Hawaiians know that Floriduhites don't?
Maybe genetics?
Floriduh is full of transplants so, guess I answered myself.

If you were upset about your penis, I was going to punish it mercilessly.  But, since you're good... guess there's nothing for me to do.  (  ._.)

That's the average temp.  In Hawaii, the hottest part of the day fluctuates between 79 and 84, on average.  FL heads way up into the OMFG temperatures for a large part of the year.
