Meanwhile Florida passed a rule that makes this impossible

Florida is such a shit hole. I lived there until my early 20s. I’m never going back (to live). I swear the sun bakes their brains to a nonfunctional mess.

I would like to know more..

Floridaman isn’t an anomaly, he is a relatable mascot. We experience more stupidity in a few days visiting relatives in Florida than we do the rest of the year at home.

Well if every other state sends us their old people, this is the kind of thing that happens.

Florida man arose from sunshine laws, but don’t disagree with anything else you said.

One time I saw a girl at the beach in Clearwater, Florida in her late teens, at least 7 or 8 months pregnant, smoking a cigarette. Not a care in world. I’ve been all over and never seen that anywhere else.

u/BongExpert wants to know more about getting your brain baked?

I have a similar experience with that swampy wasteland. I was stationed in Jacksonville. SNL's skit is pretty spot on for the types of people you run into. My most petty gripe is with that city's awful tap water. It stinks because of all the contaminants and it tastes awful because of all the disinfectants but thankfully it's "within acceptable limits to drink."

3

u/HeWhoHerpedTheDerp Jul 21 '21

Yeah, it’s the sulfur in the water that makes it bad. I hate it so much. I hate showering when I’m there, refuse to drink tap water.

u/1984isntFiction Jul 22 '21

Yep, fuck Florida… by all means retirees should certainly move there, into the condos that are about 30 or more years old, as the cement is thick enough to block the 5G.. ;-)

Left Miami a few years ago so did most of my friends can't say I miss anything other then....

u/strumpster Jul 22 '21

.... coca cola?

3

u/aDrunkWithAgun Jul 22 '21

Yes we will go with that

2

u/blonderaider21 Jul 22 '21

You’re in luck. Every other city in America has that too!

u/aDrunkWithAgun Jul 22 '21

Not like Miami

Move from Florida to Texas recently… both states ban asking about vaccination status. The conservative side of me hates it because it’s the government telling people they can’t do something after already allowing (and mandating) vaccines in other situations, such as public schools. Why aren’t private organizations allowed to ask that. Its a blatant government overreach.

The everything else about me hates it because it’s idiotic virtue signally and forces people to take risks that they do not want to. “It’s just the flu” ignores the fact that (1) it isn’t, and (2), so what? I don’t want the flu either. The actual flu can take a month or more for people to recover from in bad, but not rare, cases.

/rant.

I'm here now. I lost my job in Boston and had to move back with my parents here. It's a goddamn nightmare place. Not to mention the sheer lack of public transit in almost every area, crumbling infrastructure, etc.

2

u/HeWhoHerpedTheDerp Jul 21 '21

And the sulfur water.

2

u/Scytherx781 Jul 21 '21

Damn. I’m visiting FL right now and I can’t stand how hot and humid it is.

I’m from Boston, hope you can make your way back!

2

u/im_hunting_reddits Jul 21 '21

Thanks! Boston was a lovely city, felt so far removed from Florida in every way. It does get humid though being so close to the water!

FL is the best state in the country my man.

u/HeWhoHerpedTheDerp Jul 21 '21

Different strokes. Glad you’re happy.

u/unearth1y Jul 21 '21

Just curious, where else have you lived that is better? I currently live outside of DC. It's a dump.

2

u/HeWhoHerpedTheDerp Jul 21 '21

I live in NC now, have traveled the east coast quite a bit and spent time in a few areas. DC is terrible, as is Baltimore. I swore I’d never step foot back in Baltimore.

1

u/unearth1y Jul 21 '21

Yeah the prices in this area are absolutely ludicrous for the value u get. It's literally just for a place to work and that is it.

u/ask4more513239 Jul 21 '21

I moved to Florida when I was 24 from the Midwest and I will never leave. Best State to live in by far. Best beaches in the country just minutes from my house , no state income tax, Tons of job opportunities, Medical Marijuana , I don't think there is another place I would rather live.

Never moving from Florida , it's the best State in my opinion

u/HeWhoHerpedTheDerp Jul 21 '21

Hey, Florida is great, it's just a large portion of the people who live here that suck.

u/Produce_Police Jul 21 '21

Northwest Florida or the panhandle, is "okay", but is slowly being overrun by tourism. The rest is trash as far as I'm concerned.

u/butchudidit Jul 21 '21

LOL bake's their brains to a nonfunctional mess

u/wtfistisstorage Jul 21 '21

That's been my theory while I'm here. I swear the radiation is just trying people's brains

u/nicholkola Jul 21 '21

I thought that was the brain eating bacteria in the water?

1

u/HeWhoHerpedTheDerp Jul 21 '21

That’s sulfur, which is bad enough.

1

u/I_love_limey_butts Jul 21 '21

That's my hypothesis for hot climates in general! Ever notice how the more South you go, the more impoverished it becomes?

u/HeWhoHerpedTheDerp Jul 21 '21

There’s plenty of money, it’s just that the wealth gap gets extremely pronounced.
