I don't know what constitutes "country" but I've been all over FL. Except for the north, it's only vaguely "southern" but it still is somewhat of a Bible Belt state. Lots of Christian radio stations in Ft. Lauderdale. On one of the stations, I heard rumour that it's illegal to shoot a pornographic film in Florida. I think that's pretty cool, as I'm accustomed to living in a relatively standardless society. Not that Florida is a rigid place, just that it is slightly more on the conservative side, which I find comfortable.

mpope409, I believe that Vagus meant that since there are so many NY transplants in Florida, that its basically Long Island with palm trees now. Make sense?

Flat, sandy, monotonous terrain, big "beach culture," and, as others have already pointed out, LOTS OF NEW YORKERS!!!!!!!

Oh, and lets not forget the ever-expanding traffic and suburban sprawl, caused by the influx of all those ex-NYers . . .

Which is exactly why I said that Mason-Dixon and "west of the Mississippi" mess doesn't work.

Most of my deep southern friends at school don't consider NC to be the south. Although these are kids from Louisiana and Mississippi.

Also, Arkansas is not the upper south, It's between LA and MS. Arkansas is deep, deep south. whoever said that needs a map.

The sweet tea/gritz argument does not go very far... go to PA dutch country, end of story.

Arkansas is actually on top of Louisiana, lol. And I only said that those states can't be disputed not because of opinion but because they're the only states that are officially the part.

Virginia is argued, Florida is argued, WV-argued, Kentucky argued, and so on and so on. Texas isn't really argued, it's just understood that half of it is in the south and the other half in the southwest (which, by the way, is not an official region).

And correction, Louisiana needs to be added to the undisputed states. Forgot to add that one.

As far as Texas goes, a lot of people say that we're too big to fit into any region and that we could be our own nation. I'm fine with that, lol. We act like our own country at times. Hence, the saying "Don't Mess/F*** With Texas."
