You don't have any argument of substance so you rely on personal attacks.
If you always want to be around people like you, you would be best served to stay home. I guess the truth hurts.

If I had one wish to do anything I wanted, I'd not use it for myself - I'd do the planet a favor by wishing all the snobs of the world to vanish forever, never to be seen again...lol.

About Orlando, yes, that city sucks - I lived there once. Heck, I even worked in one of the theme parks. I know how those pushy Argentines are - you haven't seen rude until you've seen a mob of 200 of those coming your way, pushing and shoving the whole way. And the traffic, and the heat, the extreme proverty that represents more than half the Orlando area - who in their right mind would want to put up with that?

This is one part of the US I'd be glad to see not exist, Disney World and all. That's why I prefer going to places like Upper Michigan for vacation these days.
Obviously you didn't work there, as it's not the "Argentines." It's the Brazilians. Very different cultures--right down to the language.

You are also wrong about over half the area being impoverished. The reality is that over half the area is solidly middle class.

I highly doubt that any of the million plus people in the greater Orlando region really care what you think anyhow.

Folks! Folks!

The topic is about tacky places ... not tacky people.

Now, I'll tell you about the tackiest thing I ever saw:

Years ago on a trip to a theme park called Six Flags Great Adventure in southern New Jersey, I wandered into a gift shop. For sale was a big picture that was laminated on a rustic wooden board with intentionally burnt edges - big enough to hang behind a sofa - a picture of Jesus standing in front of the Pearly Gates welcoming Elvis Presley (dressed in a white Vegas costume with guitar slung in back of his shoulder). I should've bought it for it's kitsch value!!!

My son used to go to Six Flags all the time with his summer camp programs. He was disgusted by how filthy the place was--especially the "gum wall" at the entrance to the Batman ride. Summer camp stopped making that a trip after they installed the metal detectors at the entrance.

And I really wish you'd vacate this board, as I REALLY despise your high faluting attitude.

People like you just need to... (to say what I'm thinking would violate the TOS)

Probably The World's Largest Six Pack in La Crosse Wisconsin.

World's Largest Six Pack and Gambrinus, King of Beer, La Crosse, Wisconsin

I lived only a few miles away and we went past it all the time. It was a part of the landscape for me. At one point I heard that someone was talking about converting them into condominiums. Wouldn't that be a trip, to live in a huge beer can?
