You said it there, sista. All them yankees get old and slow and come down here and the AARP lobby in Talllahassee keeps them on the road way longer than they should be.

I just don't understand why people from up north come down here, spend a couple weeks in urban sprawl and think they know enough about Florida to criticize the place.

I wonder what age group are the best drivers because at 60+ she's old to most and young to fewer.

The bugs in MN make our bugs look like little babies! The good thing is they only come out when it is warm, which is about 10 weeks a year.

Let me get this straight,

You are in the Florida section of ADVR criticizing FL and expect people to welcome you clearly ignorant opinion with open arms?


And to think... The Yanks bag on our educational system.



Are you Buellgrrls fake noob?


Edit: Nevermind!! The ignorance in her posts has been explained !!

I have friends just up the street originally from MN. They like it here just fine. I'm not from here, but like it just fine. (and I spent 2 years in Miami and 5 in Key West earlier in my life).

And I've seen some of GearHeadGrrl's threads in other forums - the word "troll" does come to mind. 'Nuff said from this corner.

Either she just doesn't get it or she's smarter than all of us. Are you allowed to voice opinions on here ? Just kidding. There will be a prize for the person that gets through to her. Extra credit if it's done peacefully.

She sounds like SDH's sister! (or maybe is acquainted with a certain STD free feller)

Can you change your own motorcycle tires?
