A Day at the Park

Profound questions and answers... Which to collect?

OH Florida!

In the wake of George Zimmermanís acquittal, a lot of people from outside Florida blamed Florida. Weíve had commentators complaining that Florida is the worst and the rest of the country would be better off without that uvula-shaped state. Some clever people posted on their Facebook pages an old YouTube clip of Bugs Bunny sawing along the state line and pushing us out to sea.

OK folks. Letís play the Itís a Wonderful Life game and see what you lose if Florida doesnít exist.

1. Computers. The genius who invented the first computer, John Atanasoff, grew up in Florida. He began tinkering with his dadís slide rule at age 9, graduated high school in only two years and then earned a degree in electrical engineering from the University of Florida.

2. Air conditioning. Dr. John Gorrie became so concerned about his yellow fever patients sweltering in the Apalachicola heat that he invented a way to cool their homes and later received the first U.S. patent for a mechanical refrigeration unit in 1851. (snip)


Also on the list:

4. The Endangered Species Act

5. Public defenders

7. National Wildlife Refuges

etc...

BEWARE!



I keep seeing threads hijacked and taken over by petty arguements that sound like a Pee Wee Herman skit: "I know you are, but what am I?"

Please always remember folks, when you see a troll, pass it by. Do not feed it, post a reply to it, or acknowledge it in any way. By replying to the troll, you are making its day, giving it a feast.

If you ignore it, it will starve...
