These are things that could give California the most unique title, but I'm not saying it is and I'm sure every state has a good argument there.
I agree, CA is indeed unique too because they elected an i*iot actor for governor. Definitely unique..

Btw, the thread was about FL.. not CA.

I think Florida gets a bad rep because so many hot-button news stories have been from the state. Casey Anthony, George Zimmerman, Terri Schiavo, the whole Elian Gonzalez thing back in the 1990s, etc. It's probably not disproportionate to the total population of the state, but you don't hear so many wacky stories from California, New York, or even Texas.

So I have to agree with the OP or I can't post here?

Florida is the pit of hell. It's insanely overcrowded, horrible weather 9 months of the year, nasty rude people from New York and South America and rednecks in the less popular places.

I've lived in the Northeast and Northwest(besides FL) and have been to almost all states. I see no substantial difference in people (so they don't bother me much (in FL)). It is what it is, America in the 21st century.

Florida I agree is the most bizarre and weird state but not the most unique. Unique state to me would be Louisiana in the lower 48 and Texas their culture is totally different than any other state. Florida's culture is a mix of the Northeast because of all the transplants in South Florida and the South American transplants mixed in together and Northern Florida culture is not that much different than Alabama and Georgia.
