    Default You poor Florida residents

    Florida was always a weird state for me. Beautiful and ugly, with Jarrasic Park type critters. Mosquitos this year are supposed to be larger than ever, Pythons crawling up everywhere. Gators, and a host of oversized insects are enough to drive anyone back north. Now, we have the invasion of....snails. Not any snail mind you, ones as big as a rat that love to eat anything green and drywall. Snails that will eat your house ? WTF ?

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/04/15...da-homeowners/

    Maybe they can let some of these snails go to town on Detroit, save the city from tearing down all those old buildings. Word has it they shy away from that cheap chinese drywall though. Has me wondering if these varmits are edible. I'll have to ask Lightman, he eats these sort of things and as it so happens he's moving to Florida.

    Great. I'm moving to Florida next year!
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    Those are huge! They probably just moved to Florida to dodge their alimony payments...

    I live close to the Everglades and it is Jurassic Park here. There were 14 of these eating my car this morning! Yesterday a Palmetto bug the size of Mothra grabbed me and was lifting me to the heavens, thankfully a Python had latched to my leg and provided enough anchor delay for me to throw a snail at the Palmetto, stunning it enough for me to get away.

    I had been yelling for help the entire time but no one down here speaks English...

    Not jealous with the lack of bugs here in the PNW, but the depression from lack of sunlight will get you...

    You folks need to come experience REAL prairie bread mosquitoes. Some the size of a thumb nail! West Nile Virus is unfortunately a concern...

    Usually its lots of bee's, dragon flies and mosquitoes. Canker works are also annoying as hell when you walk into a tree with 20 of them hanging at face level!

    LOL.....funny stuff right there. Golfing once, I saw a spider web had to be 15 ft. across and 10 ft. tall elevated off the ground by another 8 ft. What the heck man, that thing was big enough to catch small aircraft. I would have ran like an ethiopian chicken if I ever saw what made that web.
    I'm willing to bet more people go missing in florida than out in the desert of Las Vegas. Where's Russ when ya need the dude.

    You do get used to it all.....

    When I first moved down here some 20 years ago, used to think OMG people are PUMPING GAS during a lightening storm!!! They must be completely out of their minds. Now think nothing of it do it myself now. If I woke up tomorrow with a Gator in my pool first a picture for you guys, then a call to? Hope there's something in the YP for gator in pool!!!
