    One sincere request. If you're escaping another state because of its policies and taxes, please, please, please, remember that and don't vote for people that want to implement those types of policies and taxes here.

    Other than, welcome to Floreeeeda!!!! And help us clean up the beaches after the tourists leave

    I think you forgot Rednecks, and although there’s a fair amount of overlap, “FloridaMan” now deserves its own designation!

    Amen to that!!!!

    I find that allot of the Florida Man stories are transplants from other places.

    Year round diving! AND....

    Year round road rage.

    Year round rednecks.

    Year round mowing.

    Year round traffic.

    Year round sea level rise.

    Piggly Wiggly stores.

    Florida would be a nice state if there weren't so many Floridians there.

    I think the population has dwindled to a mere seven left in the state. We’re seeking legislation to designate them as a protected population.

    Great diving, theme parks, beaches, about as lush as a rainforest in many areas, no or very little snow.

    Rednecks are a bonus, you'll rarely ever feel as safe as when in the presence of a large group of heavily armed, truck, boat and motorcycle owning, hardworking and God fearing folks. Unless alcohol is involved, as firing weapons from moving vehicles is kinda sketchy.

    Sorry we don't have any mountains though, only thing I miss from other places I've lived is topography.
