    Why we can always count on Florida to go bats–t crazy
    By Craig Pittman July 10, 2016 | 1:52pm

    The Orlando nightclub shooting struck Americans hard. How could such a horror occur in a town best known for fantasy, in a state widely regarded as a vacation paradise?

    The reality is of course it happened in Florida. No other state draws in so much of what is America, the good and especially the bad.

    To people outside Florida, our major exports appear to be citrus, sunburns and cheap tattoos. But Floridians know that our primary export is news — mostly those strange stories that set the world’s tongues wagging. When a major story makes headlines, the rest of America says, “Wow!” or “What the?” But we Floridians ask, “Where’s the Florida connection?” Because we know there must be one.

    You're supposed to present evidence why Florida isn't fucked up.

    Florida's oddball status is something we at the Shed have known for some time. Every state has is share of weirdos. But Florida seems to have waaaaaaaay more than it's fair share. Must be the heat and humidity.

    Florida has more weirdos because they all move here from the other 49 fucked up states. Nobody in Florida is from Florida.

    Most of the most beautiful places are full of losers. I'll let you figure them out.

    Florida also has ugly places. Pretty much anywhere more than a mile or so from the coast.
