Here's what I'm sayin'
(Newser) – A tree trimmer in Miami died yesterday after getting trapped in a palm tree, the Miami-Journal reports. The fire department was called to the scene around 4:30pm; the man was having trouble breathing. Authorities found him unconscious and trapped in the fronds, and he later died. His body was removed about two hours later. The Miami Sun notes that tree trimmers are warned about the dangers of being suffocated in collapsing palm fronds, as in this video; the fronds can collapse over trimmers' heads and pin them to the trees.
If you gotta go, and you're Mexican (or Cuban, or whoever the fuck cuts those things), that is the way to go.

P.S. Some words of that report may have been altered to effect my satire. That's the way I roll. Sorry.

The Florida Times-Union wrote:Clay deputy's son, 2, accidentally fires father's gun inside Wendy's; bullet fragments strike boy, 3 others

By Teresa Stepzinski Mon, Sep 8, 2014 @ 6:01 pm | updated Tue, Sep 9, 2014 @ 8:20 am


The 2-year-old son of a Clay County sheriff’s deputy was struck in the foot by a shattered bullet fragment and sustained minor injuries when his father’s personal handgun accidentally discharged into the floor of a Middleburg fast food restaurant where the family stopped for lunch.

Bullet fragments bouncing off the floor also struck the boy’s grandfather as well as two female customers who were standing nearby. Neither the boy nor the three adults required medical treatment. However, all were examined at the scene by county emergency medical personnel, according to a Sheriff’s Office incident report.

[…]

He had been carrying his personal .380-caliber Kel-Tec semiautomatic pistol inside the right front pocket of his pants, when it went off.

Magish said his son “stuck his hand into his pocket looking for a snack and that the firearm had discharged,” Deputy J.R. Holmes wrote in the incident report.

Tampa Bay Times wrote:Years of tracking giant snails costs Florida taxpayers millions

At a little-known government laboratory in South Florida, they keep the snails under lock and key. Sure, any escape would be sloooooow. But giant African land snails are such a threat to humans that the rules say they have to be kept locked away, just in case.

The aptly-named snails can grow to be more than 6 inches long. Wherever they go they leave a trail of smelly excrement. They eat 500 kinds of plants. They produce up to 500 eggs two or three times a year, and because they're hermaphrodites they don't need a mate. If they aren't getting enough lime from the soil for their shells, they will gobble the stucco off the side of a house.

They also carry a parasite that can infect humans with meningitis.

OPERATION CEASEFIRE

A surge in gun-related violence prompted an anti-crime effort that seemed to bring improvements in a troubled part of town – for a while.

Coming after an April when, on average, someone in Jacksonville was shot every day, Operation Ceasefire infused 60 police officers into a zone generally bounded by Beaver Street, Interstate 95, Moncrief Road and Edgewood Avenue.

As the program unfolded between May and July, the number of people shot in that zone fell from 11 to four, but gun violence rebounded after officers returned to other duties, the Times-Union reported in September.

It's nice that the story tells you where not to get off I-95 for gas.

Southern Florida is pretty much the only place in the US that isn't ass fucking cold right now.

I love it.

#215: It's not California
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Good point. I am 36 hours and 2600 miles by car from LA. We consider that "a good start". It will be better when LA drifts off into the sea and the distance is 2610 miles.
