I’ve lived in Florida almost my entire life and I’ve never had any close encounters with gators, cassowaries, poisonous snakes, barracudas, sharks or inner-city thugs. I guess I’ve been lucky.
Seriously? Do you ever leave the house?
I've never seen cassowaries, but I'll see a gator every couple of months at least, poisonous snakes at least once a year(ring neck, rat snakes and black racers monthly)... never ran across a barracuda in FL, but fishing in CA... had a small shark approach me while snorkeling and another while fishing from a sandbar when I was younger and I see inner city thugs multiple times a day on my drive to work (tampa/ybor). I do live at the outskirts of a smaller town though...rural-ish (no pizza delivery or cable tv/internet)
I do try remain vigilant for 'Florida Man' and give him a wide berth when spotted.
