BTW, Godspeed on your trip to Mars next month. I personally won't miss you, but maybe someone here on C-D will.
No most of them were at the rental place by Seatac (was also told the same by an employee). It takes a while for people to register cars after they move somewhere else. Also, I did notice many CA license plates around Seattle and so I read on the Seattle forum here on CD. Ask me if I care you won't miss me?

I'll make sure to send you some martian bacteria so you can colonize your brain(they're probably far more advanced than what you have in there).

Gosh, I know that was 115 years ago, but now that I'm looking at the population growth, we really need to stop procreating for a while.
That's because people back then even knew how great Florida was.

You are ignorant at best and don't know how to write proper English " I don't want to hear that I'm know knowledgeable or an expert. (???) I'm working on a doctorate right now. Sure and I am building a rocket to go to Mars next month.. tune in. Give me a postcard and I'll mail it back to you when I get there, ok? Everyone has a PhD on the internet...

If you had any knowledge on the subject you wouldn't be calling the Everglades "puke in a handbag".
Not* knowledgeable is what I meant to say. When I was writing that, I have AC on my phone as I have forum software on my mobile device. Also, I'm not going to focus and read over every single thing I post on here. I would otherwise not have as many posts. I'm not writing a formal essay toward my degree, so quit arguing semantics with me. If you want to do that, then I'll show you how many mistakes you've made throughout your posting history. And I don't have a PhD right now, but I am in graduate school, and do plan on receiving it and wouldn't see why not. It's alright to be jealous. I realize you weren't expecting me to say that. I can think anything I want of the everglades, and I knew about its biodiversity even before you said anything. I took Marine Bio 101 some ages ago. So it's time to drop it, and get to California, the state better than Florida.

People are moving away from CA. Also the state came close to being bankrupt several years ago(they are currently releasing inmates from various jails, probably don't have the $$$ to keep them locked in; also it indicates the state is highly crime ridden).

Early jail releases have surged since California's prison realignment - LA Times

hehe he took Marine Bio 101 ages ago... here's a lollipop kid.

The everglades look like puke in a handbag, and the everglade mountains look like West Virginia, and gross/not tropical. Southern California has beautiful icy mountains, and desert mountains. Oh yeah, California has a desert, so it has dry heat, not the nasty Florida heat. Plus, California has better waves and such. The only thing Florida has against California is affordability in terms of living. People just go to Florida because 50% of the population lives on the very eastern side of the U.S., and it's just more affordable to travel to Florida. plus florida is too conservative. California is always going to be more expensive, and that's why people don't go, although they know they would like to.
LOL, I don't know what you're drinking, or smoking when you see mountains in the Everglades, last I checked the Everglades is as flat as the rest of the state.

To state the oft-repeated mantra about personal choice, to each his own. You don't like Florida, we'll look forward to not seeing you here. You won't be missed, there are already too many others, IMO, who've relocated or plan to relocate to Florida, enough to make it the third most populous state in the nation, and they just keep coming.

Maybe you could launch an advertising campaign extolling the virtues of those other states you say are better than Florida, enumerating the vices of Florida, and don't forget to include how ugly the mountains of the Everglades are!!!

Or talking about how the "mountains of the Everglades look like West Virginia".

Hopefully this poster's claimed PhD study is not in Geography.

It's funny you taunt one actually attempting to attain such a degree when you probably are not even close to attaining anything of the sort? What do you have, an undergraduate in marine bio?

Make sure you play with your sand bucket next time you visit FL. Also, don't garble stupid things, like FL has mountains. Degrees are no cure for stupidity.

Um... that first pic is not Florida. There are a few spots in the middle of the state with some small hills, but those are mountains.
