    In my acting class one of the interns is originally from Florida, she describes life there as being "boring."
    Reading this thread it confuses me.

    It depends on the region. North Florida is full of rich/upper middle class families who moved here because of the weather. Jacksonville is fairly normal, but there are a couple of kooks and crazies running about. The real reason we get our rep for being a state of gator taming rednecks is the dudes down south. Miami is essentially the illegitimate child of Cuba and Florida
    . The panhandle is pretty chill actually.

    I'm in Dunnellon, near Gainesville. All I see here are old people who can't drive.

    I'm in Largo FL near Clearwater. The craziest thing that happens here was actually with me. A couple of years ago at my old place, I was like the bird whisper.
    The apartment was around a lake so lots of wildlife such as egrets, ducks, and those birds that look like the loch ness monster.

    Besides that in 2008-2009 I did go to a school in a place called Rainbow village didn't care for it too much a little too violent for my taste

    We were on a road trip in Florida a few years back, going back to Miami from a Gator farm. I think two cars were racing into a T-intersection, and some unfortunate lady driving straight ahead got hit by both cars. Her car got wrapped around a friggin pole. The two "racecars" managed to drive away on their own just as we arrived.

    There were 10-15 fine gentlemen standing around when we came driving, but when the cops came no one knew how to speak English
    ... The cops didn't really bother with us tourists either, didn't even get our names or contact info.

    That's pretty much universal fact. as stated in the tomes of yore, "In lands onwhich lie thereupon directors of mechanized motion contraptions, once passt' th' age upon which numbers lie one more than fifty-nine, all shalt relinquish skill in stated direction, and shalt thenforth beth allowed to driveth upon these streets, to the chagrin of the younger peasantfolk."

    Have you tried summoning Trogdor? I hear he squishes peasants pretty good.

    Driving near any university is hell. I've seen too many people driving without signals, driving the wrong way, driving on the sidewalk, making left turns from the right lane at a red light, dropping debris from their car, or some combination of those.

    I apologize on behalf of my state. We're not all like this, I swear.

    Whoever’s currently leading the Avengers (With Tony dead, Steve retired after staying in the past, and Thor traveling the stars with the GOTG) would probably say “Hell No!” to that.
