To be fair, the reason that you hear so many crazy Florida Man stories is because, unlike the great majority of states, the press has full access to ALL arrest records, ie they simply have more crazy to sift through. I’ve lived in five states including Florida and my partner is a public defender in a different state, so take my word for it: da crazy is universal.
more pics of subject matter please ... your voice is kinda cool at first , but having to look at you for too long makes me start to hate your voice and definitely your look ... you may be trying to brand with your look (but a few seconds at a time is more than enough , reality check ... nobody wants to look at you , are you supposed to be cute or something ??? you're not , I've hit the wall myself my friend) ... before everything starts to crumble , you'd better change it up ... i cant finish watching your videos because it's become watching you. sorry .... once i click bait on something and realize its you , I'm out and am now starting to make sure i don't steer into you ......... just my opinion , take it or leave it
I know I'm late to this video but I moved to FL in '94 from NJ and the stupid crap that happens in FL never ceases to entertain me, it's either entertain or annoy me so I only let it entertain. The best moments are going to the Walmarts in my area and enjoy the variety of 'characters' who shop there. I will say it's sometimes more entertaining that going to the zoo, and at least going to Walmart is free, although who walks out of Walmart empty handed. It's a small cost for the entertainment of walking through and seeing other customers, especially the ones in pajamas (the pajamas thing is covered in a different TopTenz video).
Having lived in Florida for a bit over 10 years, none of this is surprising. "Florida, a sunny place for shady people" there is constant entertainment just driving around. I think the sun and melting pot of people from literally everywhere is to blame... Mostly the sun. It is the phallus of the United States and as so it makes bad decisions
Florida Man is real! Don't believe the lies! He's somewhere out there right now, perhaps in the panhandle, in flip flops, and within arms reach of a case of warm Busch Light and half a pack of Winstons. Anyone who says otherwise is trying to rationalize him away out of fear. Florida Man lives!... just not well....
My neighbor and i have a discrepancy about where are property line is (not an actual disagreement as neither of us have a clear opinion). Our solution is to split the cost of a surveyor to come out and show us. Fortunately neither of us care enough to have made it a near future priority.
As funny as #7 might be, the man did nothing illegal, spent his own money, it helped him get through what at best was likely a difficult patch and he started a YouTube channel so he might actually profit from the whole thing.
As for all the other ones though? Maybe TopTenz will do a PG-13 or R-rated version and get to the really entertaining stuff instead of keeping it PG.
Florida born and raised here, the amount of times I've seen the most off the wall stuff in my 24 years of being in Florida but for me personally, it was working third shift so a 24 hour taco Bell, having a homeless guy walk up to the window at 3 a.m. with a pipe in his hand (glass but not for bud or tobacco, guessing it might be for harder drugs) and was hitting it at the window while I was taking another dudes order, after I finished with the dude at the menu and my manager talked to tbe homeless dude, the other guy rolled up and was like "i almost hit that dude" I said "why are you on something?" He said "yeah I just got off work as a bartender and I'm drunk and high off coke" and then proceeded to ask me to thrown in a "brownie sandwich" which is a desert taco Bell used to sell back in the day, well I was 18 at the time so he asked for my manager, manager went up to the window and came back with a full, unopened bottle of Jameson whiskey because we gave the dude a 1.49$ brownie, we then proceeded to have fun and drink and smoke a little while the rest of the night played out, about an hour after that, a car full of thicccc chicks rolled up and flashed the whole crew for free tacos and cinnamon twists 😂🤣
I went scrolling through the comment section thinking I was going to see comments from offended Floridians, but nope. They all seem to think these stories are tame. Also, when I swype Floridians, it gives me the word Clowns as one of the choices.
I lived in Orlando in the early nineties my theory is that every moron from the North who hates the snow moves to Florida while I was living there to on duty police officers in uniform it in their cruiser robbed a bank
As a REAL Florida man, I feel like I have to explain these stories. Here goes: Florida is a magnet for all the northeast and midwestern folks who, for whatever reason, decided to get a fresh start. They choose Florida for it's climate, strong economy, and beautiful beaches. These transplants are here because they probably failed at life in their previous home state. Maybe they were run out of town, maybe they had financial or legal problems. Anyway, we find ourselves much like the Australia of the U.S. We have all the nations rejects, and that's why you see all this "Florida Man' crap. We natives can't stand the dirtbags and they're nothing like us.
@toptenz Thanks for the mention 3:23 ! Glad to be the only one on the list that actually wasn’t a stupid thing 😆.
They say the lowest point in your life, can also be the highest in hindsight. I’m sure glad that was true in my case.
It gave me the ability to overcome darkness and became a catalyst to help and educate others as well. KINGTASTIC Job on the video!👑👍🏻👑
I know I lived in Florida for 10 years and there's something very Drury about the state when downtown Orlando has nothing full of clubs and perverts and gangs and my look pretty but Florida is infested with many perverts and gangs and Satanism I know I was there for 10 years that different part of the states and many illegals as well I'm glad to where I I move to back in Pennsylvania where at least there's a state of morals there Florida not the place to raise a family
I live in Florida, these people are crazy! I'm from upstate NY but I love the sun. Anyway since this video is over a year old I thought I would fill you in with the latest.... Fl man throws 3ft gator through brive through window.......Fl man pays for car to come out of impound and then tosses homemade pipe bombs over the fence and at his own vehicle.... every day there is a new Fl man story lol.
Crazies exist everywhere, but the "Florida Man" phenomenon exists because Florida has a 100% open criminal record. So when it's slow news day, the TV stations turn to browsing the Florida criminal records to entertain their viewers. That's how the opening starts "Florida man does...xyz" hilarity ensues.
I have been there many times. My Neice and her husband moved to Orlando many years ago. It is Very, Very weird place. Many residents,though not all by many means are So Weird that they put red necks and hillbillies to shame! I should know, I have lived in the South for many years and lived in the Application mountains for ten years.
Weird stuff like this happens in every state, the reason why you hear it more often in Florida is that a state law past in 1995 allows almost anyone to request information in recent arrest reports as long as the perpetrator is at least 18 years old and the report does not give out the names of anyone under the age of 18. Out of all of the largest states of the US, no state makes it easier to get detailed up-to-date police reports as easily as a phone call or a walk-in to the local police department then Florida (California, New York, Illinois, and Texas all require a lot of loops to be jumped through in order to get the same kinds of police reports.) Another reason you see many reports in Florida is the state in general attracts a lot higher percentage of mentally ill and criminally connected people on the fringes of society at all most all levels. From buglers, to hustlers, to shady lawyers to bad doctors (supposedly Florida has the most number of active medical doctors who have been barred from practicing in at least one other state), the state seems to attract the worst kinds of people.
Miami: An illegal alien "dentist" was arrested for running a dental office out of his garage...where he also kept caged squirrels.
Try reading the daily police arrest section of the main Key West newspaper. Hillarious. "Machete weilding man on moped crashes into palm tree while chasing pirates..." etc....
I am a Floridian. There is crazy stuff that goes on here ( normal stuff to me ) but I don't think we are as bad as we are portrayed. Remember a lot of you snowbirds come down year round half the stories aren't of Floridians but ppl visiting.
Does anyone else think that marvel needs to make a super hero movie with a hero named Florida man who after using his powers always ends up doing something wildly stupid or what would been considered a drug/alcohol endused antics haha
