Would it surprise you to learn that some of the deep basement rocks underlying Florida were once part of Africa? Florida’s geologic history has been traced back to the early Paleozoic Era, 540 – 251 million years ago (mya), largely through the study of rock samples obtained from oil test wells drilled in northern Florida and nearby Georgia and Alabama. In Florida, the top of the Paleozoic strata ranges from approximately 3,000 to 8,000 feet below land surface and they consist of igneous and metamorphic rocks overlain by sandstones and shales.
The most famous Florida pirate was José Gaspar, known by his nickname Gasparilla.

In Florida, it’s very easy to buy opiates. Simply walk into any pain clinic, tell them you hurt, pay them cash, and walk away with your drugs! Totally legal, and helps fund our governor Rick Scott. Totally safe too, after all, it’s prescription drugs… do you really think they’d sell us dangerous and harmful things that ruin our lives and corrupt our neighborhoods just to make billions of dollars?

Only the “Right Of Adults To Cannabis” amendment can secure your RIGHT to possess, cultivate, and use cannabis in a manner similar to your 2nd amendment right to “keep and bear arms” … think about that for a minute.
Whether you agree or disagree with Americans right to gun ownership, the strength of this protected right is clear and viewed my many as absolute. Floridians For Freedom believes adults right to whole plant cannabis should be comparable and hopes you agree. Full Story »
STOP! If you are about to post some ignorant, racist shit on this site, know that you will be called out for it. You will be fact-checked, and laughed at. If you threaten anyone or make egregious ad hominem attacks then you will be banned. Just chill. Think before you speak/type. Florida is fucked up enough without racism.
If you DO have an aversion towards people of a certain race, please just go make friends with one… you will find they are a lot like you. Letting go of hatred will clear up your mind for better things, and you will be happier.
That being said, culture jokes are fine here at WTF Florida. Florida’s a beautifully diverse place, and the nuances of how we all get along is part of our weird hilarity. Just don’t be a racist prick. If you wouldn’t say it in Miami or out in the boonies, don’t say it here.
Be decent to each other and enjoy the site. We will also say this to balance things out: fuck being politically correct. This page is offensive, crude, and ridiculous, just like the news articles we post. If you are laughing at the misfortune of the people whose mugshots arrive on our site, then you should be able to take a fucking joke.
This is our semi-official new policy we just pulled out of our ass. Please feel free to comment with any suggestions as to how we can improve our site, Florida, and the world.
A news article was posted about a man who was arrested in his trailer with meth. We made a joke about him being “proud” of that, while poking fun at his silly tattoo. Some people took great offense to this. It resulted in a backlash of racist comments, and people defending this guy’s tattoo, saying that “White Pride” is OK: Full Story »
Florida has a healthy and stable alligator population. We have about 1.3 million alligators in Florida. Alligators live in all 67 counties, and they inhabit all wild areas of Florida that can support them.
The reality is though, gators hardly ever attack people. Alligators are our friends.
According to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Licensing, as of June 30, 2017, there are 1,772,523 civilians with a “Concealed Weapon or Firearm” license. [PDF]

So, as our WTF Florida? Facebook page grows, we are seeing a disturbing amount of racist comments being made. Just to make things clear, we DO NOT TOLERATE RACISM. Of course, we do tolerate laughing at dumb criminals, ridiculous banter, insanity… I mean we do have the F word in our name, so yeah… but this is NOT the forum to express your racist idiocy. Here is just one example out of an onslaught of stupid, racists comments found on our Facebook page:
Look, if you have racist thoughts like this woman, please examine your thoughts very closely. Take a few deep breaths. Try to imagine EVERYONE as your brother and sister. Be kind and observant of what your mind is doing. We hope and pray that everyone will chill the fuck out, act more like Jesus, and stop being so shitty to each other. Peace.
New feature: at the bottom of every article is now a “County” tag that says which county/counties the story took place in. Click on it to see all stories from that county. There’s still a lot more work to be done… this feature is kind of in beta. These cross-relational database queries are tricky, but at least the basics are set up. You can browse the entire county list by going to wtfflorida.com/county/, but keep in mind not every county has an article yet, and there may still be some bugs since this is brand new. Some articles have more than one location as Florida Man tends to get around.
New feature: There’s an easy to copy hyperlink below each story also. Simply triple click the full text link and press ctrl + c to copy, or right click the orange Hyperlink and copy the link from there. Sharing is caring, let everybody know how fucked up Florida is.
If you notice anything fucked up on the site, please Contact us or leave a comment below.
