This weekend, Florida became Buzzfeed-famous. GloZell Green, a self-proclaimed Orlando native hosted a video titled "Nine Things Only Floridians Understand." GloZell's list is pretty spot on, covering all the basics, like the Florida seasons ("Hot, extra hot, super hot, and crispy"), our year-round style (on flip-flops: "You can wear them to weddings; you can wear them to funerals."), the happiest place on earth ("It costs, like, a house payment to go out there and see that rat.") and more. Watch the whole thing below:

While this list is great and we agree with every single bit of it, we think GloZell left out a couple pretty big things only Floridians understand:

1. The need to bring a sweater, wrap or hoodie EVERYWHERE. Inside spaces in Florida are COLD, y'all.

2. Florida is practically American's official retiree state. Look left? Old person golfing? Look right. Old person walking on the beach with their metal detector. Basically, old folks are everywhere and they're driving super-slow to get there.

What do you think was left off the list? Let us know in the comments below!
