Uh, disagree with you, subby. Florida Man is rarely a retiree from the Villages. They usually Florida-Man out before making it to that age.

Those are just people blowing their union/new deal pensions driving up the costs to locals.

Yeah. Explains much.

Spent some time in FL when I was in the navy, never really 'got' it. January and February were tolerable but the rest of the year was a sweltering, bug infested swamp.

Retirees from Ohio, New York, and Boston move to Florida. Some of their crotch fruit follows them down. BAM!!! Florida man was born.

Now add to that a bunch of drugs, a get-rich-quick mentality, inflated and often outright criminal real estate practices, a bunch of Snow Birds who the state relies on so it creates a whole field of sucke...er, potential sales and investors, immigrants that the State needs but the Pale Americans kind of hate, an active Cuban community, and some toxic Southern mentality overlaid with the absolute knowledge that they NEED these outsiders to invest, because otherwise, they got swamps and mangroves. You know, like the House of Mouse or the other parks and attractions, along with the moneyed set that has made Miami into its own sort of theme park.

Florida Man comes out of that sort of stew.

If you can replace the fountain of meth with the actual fountain of youth.

And I look forward to Huntsville being taken out by a hurricane with all this nasty weather. You're
a sociopath.

Also, they have red, fatty flesh that is good for tanking up for hibernation.

Lighten up, Francis - welcome to Fark.
You'll get over it.

It looks like paradise compared to my frozen wasteland of a driveway here in Minnesota.  Add that to the crippling taxes I have to pay, and I can really see why retiring there would be ok.  I would much rather be on a golf cart in the sun, doing almost anything, than my damn snow blower in 20 below wind chill.  I still have to crawl outside in the snow pile to put the pto shaft under it.

Well, it's not this.   Also, Florida is someplace where someone who's father fished by nets from a boat in Cuba with no proper engine now goes offshore for Mahi-Mahi with a Center Console that's sporting 4 Honda outboards.   Just try to get that guy to agree with Chomsky and Wolff.

Left one thing out. The Nine Nations of North America said the South Florida got so weird because it was the port of entry, money laundering center and playground for Latin American dictators, drug cartels and their CIA contacts.
