I remember as a little kid in Florida being terrified of our laundry room because of giant spiders.

The laundry room was at the rear of our carport, with a breezeway connecting it to our kitchen. My mom used to send me or my siblings in there to fetch laundry or something from the pantry, but there would sometimes be very large spiders (about the size of saucers) sitting on the floor when I went in. And they would immediately scurry up under the washer or dryer. To a 5 or 6 year old, a spider that size would be like an adult running into a dinner plate sized arachnid.

That was the only thing about the Sunshine state I wasn't overly fond of. (Well, that and the unbearable humidity I notice as an adult, but was oblivious to as a grade school aged child.)

Of course Florida's a great state; I was born there!

fancythat is one cynical mofo.

23. - Money actually has less to do with education than you think. Money doesn't buy everything. America spends more on education and healthcare (and other things) per person than most other countries, but has worse outcomes.

But Florida has an excellent university system. I got my AA and BA for $2,000 because of FL's system. That's 4 years of schooling for 2,000 dollars. Most other states do not have this.

Fancythat, I'll comment on a few of your opinions:
1. We wouldn't have so many tourists and snowbirds if people didn't like our weather.
3. We don't have mountains, but we have swamps, forests, beaches, farmland...
4. The natural springs here are amazing!
6. Have you ever had a Publix sub? That's why.
8. There are many non-Disney tourist attractions in Florida.
9. I've had all sorts of beers from all over the world, and Cigar City Jai Alai remains my favorite.
15. A hat isn't going to protect your body from sunburn.
17. The Cuban sandwich was still invented in Florida. Are you saying that anything invented in the U.S. by a foreigner is irrelevant?
22. Because Manatees are awesome!
23. I've lived here my whole life, and I'm reasonably literate.

1. Florida weather? You mean summer humidity? No thanks.
2. Who gives a rats ass?
3. Varying landscapes? Like those vast Floridian mountains?
4. Hidden springs = sink holes, mf'er
5. Yay, NASA. How's your shuttle service running?
6. You list a grocery store as a reason? Lowering the bar for future posts, I assume.
7. Miami Heat - good, but not likable. What is the list about again?
8. Walt Disney. Zig heil, I mean, BIG SMILE!
9. Never heard of ya.
10. Okay, I love OJ. That's one.
11. Yes, but they always happen. Enjoy the (temporarily) wet seat in your convertable, along with your perma-sunburn and melanoma.
12. Refer to #2.
13. Can I thank him for Spirit Airlines, too?
14. Not bad, but I'll take my Maine lobstah over any instance of contracting crabs in Florida. And that WILL happen eventually.
15. There's nothing a hat won't do that chemicals can also almost sometimes do, but not as well.

16. Diversity of wildlife and nature in the everglades. Notice, "humanity" and "race" weren't included. And enjoy your overnight stay in the Everglades because I hear th.... What? Eaten? Holy poo.
17. Food from a different culture brought to the states makes Florida the best state? The bar just keeps on lowering...
18. Key lime pie isn't bad, but I prefer to eat it in states other than Florida. Even if you're rocking Duvall on Halloween with just a sock between your junk and the humid air, I'll still eat my pie elsewhere.

19. Yes, come and enjoy the pretentiousness of those that are either stealing money, or making it illegally. You can always visit Hyzinga's mega-yacht - no, not HIS - the one he gave to his DAUGHTER for a birthday present.
20. I always associate museums dedicated to the living culture of Japanese people with Florida. Or there's, you know, Japan.
21. ...and if you can't find shark's teeth, walk down Broward Ave and find *human* teeth.
22. It's true - manatees are gentle. How this means Florida is numero uno (that means number one for all you non-spanish speaking people who don't live in Florida.
23. Floridians spend so little on their educational system, they *can't* read the newspaper.

24. If someone attacks you and bashes your head into a sidewalk in Florida, you can shoot them!

And if you're a tourist, you'll likely get murdered before you can pull your rental car out of the airport parking lot.

As long as you don't have your phone on during a movie, play loud music, look at someone funny, attempt to greet someone by extending your hand....etc. No thanks!

Good place to visit but I couldn't see myself living there even if the weather is nice all year around.
