Exclamation Let's hear it for Florida!

It's been said a person has a better chance of being struck by lightning than getting attacked by a shark, but your chances of shark attack will probably go up if you visit New Smyrna Beach, which discovery.com reports has seen more shark attacks per square mile than any other location on Earth.

Well now, doesn't that figure!

No wonder they call Florida "God's waiting room", you move here and just wait for hurricanes, tornadoes, sharks, lightning, alligators, scorpions, heat, spiders, Burmese pythons, to kill you, but the one that really scares me is the old farts and their driving.

We are also #1 in pedestrian deaths.

OMG, why do I live here?

Not to mention the red tide.
At the end of the day the best thing about Florida is the fact you can buy Yuengling.

But, it's the best place to own an SLK. Mostly beautiful weather everyday. Of course except the summer rains, but we can work around that little nuisance. After being in New England for 3 weeks and having to wash my car 5 times and still couldn't keep her clean I would never live anywhere else.

red tide is a toxic algae bloom that can occur in coastal waters-we get them occ. in Texas-very nasty stuff-we are prob. making it worse with agriculture runoff,etc....
