32 pages long this thread now is... Happiness is close, I think it's fair to say not many if anyone is agreeing with you. Shall we stop and close this thread already?

Happiness is close, how old are you? I'm asking not because I care, but because I think you have to be young to say some of the things you say.

Those cities are the vast majority of floridas population. And the entirety of the peninsulas. You must be thinking of some tiny forgotten town if you think there is southern in the peninsula.

The only people not agreeing with me are you (who hates Florida), and a bunch of southerners from Texas, Georgia, Virginia, etc. as well as the odd posters from Maryland and DC. Florida knows what Florida is. Bunch of southerners with their overalls in a knot trying to tell me what my state is.

My age is none of your business, but I graduated college many years ago.

Or people who actually has experience in Florida and at one time, lived-in Florida as well. Bottom line, you have more in common with other Southern states then you do with California, Oregon, and Washington.

I kind of agree with Happiness for the most part. I've seen towns with Southern culture here and there (Paisley maybe?) But the VAST MAJORITY of the peninsula has a MINUTE Southern influence. My comparison to DC and Maryland stems from MDs blend of Northeastern and Southern culture due to its geographical location... FL feels like a melting pot of everything, adding to that a VERY HEAVY Caribbean influence. Practically all of Pine Hills in Orlando, for instance, is a mixed bag of Guyanese, Jamaican, Haitian, etc. Let's not even talk about Miami. Lake Mary is suburban NYC.

That's your bottom line. And it is WRONG. You are a broken record as well. Proved wrong enough times yet still you blabber your nonsense.

thats fine.

I'm not sure anyone has agreed with you except one, and he said he agrees in some ways but not all.
