How come Florida attracts so many crazy people? What causes it? There are plenty of states that also have nice weather and beaches etc, but Florida really seems to be the place where most of the really crazy madness goes down in the entire country. On a side note, I lived in Florida for a while and I've visited a fair amount of states in the US by now. There's definitely something in the air there. I don't know what, but it's there. I honestly love the place.
