Say what you will about Lousiana having Coonasses, Mississippi/Alabama/Georgia having trailer trash, Arkansas/Tennessee having hillbillies, and West Virginia being West Virginia, but no state does trash quite like Florida does. Every type of trash you can imagine is in Florida: trailer trash, swamp people, backwoods racist hicks, thugs, serial killers, pedophiles, animal rapists, drug dealers, etc.
Another reason why no state can compare is the trash pilgrimage to at least some site in Florida. All trash regardless of how cooped up they are live in Florida, have been to Florida multiple times (usually annually), or have big plans on going there. And look at the trash options in the state: Disney World, Panama City, Tampa, Daytona, Jacksonville, Destin, Miami, etc. at least one of those places really calls the trash to it, rather they drive 15 hours yelling at each other to get there, or have to fight over who is getting water in the middle of their 90 mile raft ride over the Carribean.
Honestly if someone goes on a killing spree and they can't find him, just put up roadblocks around Florida and he'll show up somewhere. If America is a funnel, then Florida is obviously the drain. It's like salmon going back to their birth place to spawn; we don't know how they know to get back there, they just know.

I'm just saying when someone puts up a fricked up thread topic, my first thought is typically Florida, and 6 out of 10 times I'm right. Seems a bit disproportionate and seems like it just breeds degenerates or simply attracts them.
I think FL gets a pass on trashiness because when people think FL(who haven't fully enjoyed the full experience) they think Disney, South Beach, Keys and Everglades. FL has more touristy BS than MS or AL
NM shocked me with how depressingly trashy it was. Went there is HS with a church group it was a hell hole of poverty. Did not see a single house in several towns worth living in. The very southern part of CO isnt much better.
It was odd for me to just see poverty without the redneck aspect, if that makes sense.
