Snail mucus, potheads add to strange Fla. news
By BRENDAN FARRINGTON, Associated Press Brendan Farrington, Associated Press Mon Dec 27, 11:15 am ET

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – This year, Floridians learned that burials at sea don't work if the body doesn't sink, giant snail mucus can make you sick and that an underwire bra can stop a lawyer from visiting her client in prison.

Florida lived up to its reputation for being an odd state in 2010, with residents committing stupid crimes, making poor decisions and exhibiting general weirdness....

The worst 6 months of my life were spent in Pensacola, Florida. Not the brightest state in the union.

The worst year of my life was two days spent in Houston, Texas.

Going to find out. Table lake just made it onto our August hiking plan, possibly as an overnight site.

Don't tell me you are in on this too.

But you are right... I'm fully expecting those two turkeys to get to the Jct. and say "screw Table Lake".

Is it something to do with all those contour lines on the map?

It's the "eyes are bigga than the stomach" syndrome.
Or the "it looked easy on the map" syndrome.
Or the "it's only 5 miles out of the way and 1000 ft.... we should do it" syndrome.

But it'll probably be... the old dude effect ... (x2)

It is said that there is Vanilla Pudding in Table Lake.
It lines the shores and covers the bottom, enticing the old men
to enter it's otherworldly realm.
But I do not go for the Vanilla Pudding, I go for the
Trout Fishing in American Pudding that can only be found there.

Don't roast me if you are not pleased.
Got penciled in Aug.19-22 for that area to hit Table Mtn., Pettit, West, Regulation, and Volunteer.

I'll say hello if run into you.

Have fun
