This can overlap with the "sovereign citizen" thread: http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/06/03/judge-orders-florida-sovereign-citizen-to-send-his-daughter-to-school-or-go-to-jail/
A Florida judge ordered a self-described sovereign citizen to send his daughter to school or face jail time.Joseph Rosa, of Marion County, was arrested Thursday for failure to appear at a truancy hearing and brought before the judge on Monday morning.“I do not consent or assent to anything being done here,” he repeated throughout the hearing. “I’m the executor of the state of Joseph Anthony Rosa. I demand immediate discharge of the state known as Joseph Anthony Rosa.”

so we just voted to go to Atlantic Standard time (ie no more Daylight SAvings time). requires Department of Transportation and federal Congress approval.
I hate the idea, not because I think DST is necessary, but because it's a logistical nightmare being out of alignment with other East coast states for half of the year. Puerto Rico uses AST and since our office often has dual call centers with both PR and Orlando resources, it's caused lots of problems, usually from people that don't understand PR is not on Eastern time.
if all of the East coast states abolished DST, then I wouldn't give a fuck.

Yeah - it's not that I object to not being on DST anymore, it's that I object to being the ONLY DAMN EAST COAST STATE that does it.
wonder how many tourists would be accidentally show up late to everything because they forget and travel to FL during the half of the year when we're an hour ahead

The wet bathing suit around your ankles is nicely evocative. And I like the bit about jalousie windows. Whatever happened to those?
"Fecundity" strikes me as a key Florida word. Humidity and fecundity.

Witnesses saw the man, identified as Cody Meader, 20, take the plush snowman toy down from a display of Disney’s Frozen merchandise in a St. Petersburg-based store. After lying the toy down on the floor, Meader then proceeded to ‘dry hump’ it until he achieved ejaculation.
After putting the doll back on the shelf, Meader then ‘selected a large unicorn stuffed animal’ he also began to have sex with. The incident took place on Tuesday (October 22) at approximately 2pm.
Walt Disney Studios Motion PicturesAccording to a police report obtained by The Smoking Gun, Meader was detained by officers while still in the Target store.
After being read his Miranda rights, Meader admitted to having done ‘stupid stuff’ and to having ‘nutted’ on the stuffed Olaf toy. He was then arrested on charges of criminal mischief.
Both the Olaf doll and the stuffed unicorn were removed from the store and destroyed. The police report noted the toys in question could not be resold ‘due to circumstances’, and the damage inflicted totalled $200 or less.

He also testified in his own defense at trial, despite a judge’s warning.
Besides being a tiger enthusiast, Joe Exotic was also a self-proclaimed country music star and ran for president in 2016 and then governor of Oklahoma in 2018. When he ran for governor, his campaign signs read, “Joe F--king Exotic.”

Nothing surprises me here anymore. Not that long ago i witnessed a thief running Olympic track speeds out of a 7-11, pursued by nobody at all, because he had just shoplifted a bag of Cheetos

Was gonna ask what part of FL you're in because in SE Florida and the Keys the water comes from the Biscayne Aquifer and tastes normal to me. Other aquifers supply other parts of the state, iow it's all water from underground but I suspect weird-tasting water is down to whatever is added to it locally.

A Florida man says a medical center is violating his father's First Amendment rights by not allowing him to bring a life-sized cardboard cutout of Donald Trump to his treatments.
Nelson Gibson of Port St. Lucie kept bringing increasingly larger images of the president to Fresenius Kidney Care for his dialysis treatments, WESH-Channel 2 reports.
He started with an 8 x 10 photo of Trump "to comfort him," the TV station reported. Then he brought a miniature cardboard cutout of Trump.
Both of those were tolerated.
Fresenius Kidney Care drew the line at the life-sized cutout, however.
Gibson's son, Eric Gibson, said his father's cutout — which the TV station described as an "emotional support" item — is no bigger than a "garbage can" and therefore shouldn't be an issue.
“What I would really like to happen is for them not to infringe upon my father’s freedom of expression and speech and allow him to bring in the life-sized cardboard cutout that takes up less service area than a garbage can?” Eric Gibson told WESH.
