Good grief...

I heard guys that prefer craft beers, sport pink loofahs. Don't know if that's true.

Hi all,
We are renting a house next spring in the villages... The rental property comes with a four-person golf cart....

Do I need two loofahs for my golf cart?

Has anyone seen a LED color changing loofah?

Will urban myths of the villages ever go away?

Haha... But I do agree on the use of an phone app to put a pin in the map as to where your golf cart was last left.

First, I will tell you what those loofahs really mean. AND THEN I will tell you what used to be said — but only if you promise not to believe that scandalous rumor:

Those loofahs are truly and merely to indicate where the car is parked.

I don’t have a loofah on my car. But as the owner of a white car with Florida plates, I can tell you that not paying perfect attention to where I had parked has caused me to end up pushing my grocery cart aimlessly through Publix parking lot, while trying to look confident — like I know whereinthehell I parked that Honda.

BUT somehow, somewhere, a long time ago, a rumor was started that said those loofah’d cars belonged to swingers, swappers, a key-party group. Not true. I have NEVER once seen anything unseemly in the backseats of those cars.

That salacious loofah rumor went around about the same time as the one that said to never wear red shoes while sitting at an outside bar in TV or people would think you were a hooker. (That rumor was so long ago that Brownwood had not even been built yet and LSL City Fire had a different name.)

All righty then, now, I have cleared all that up. Aren’t you glad you asked.
I don't think it's just a rumor.

My cult leader has told me that it's true, so no amount of facts you may come up with proving otherwise...will ever change my mind.

I tried a few years ago, but let's do it again with 2018 data from the CDC and Florida Dept. of Health:

Chlamydia:

National rate: 539.9 cases/100K population
Florida rate: 499.0 cases/100K population
Sumter Co. rate: 186.6 cases/100K population

True chlamydia capital of the US----St. Louis , Mo. with 1283 cases/100K population

Gonorrhea:

National rate: 179.1 cases/100K population
Florida rate: 156.0 cases/100K population
Sumter Co. rate: 85.0 cases/100K population

True GC capital of the US----Montgomery Co., Alabama----563.0 cases/100K population

I couldn't find data specific to TV alone, but given the average age of the population vs. the surrounding areas, it is likely the rates in TV are even lower than Sumter Co. as a whole.

End of myth.

It's difficult to find a lot of statistics on The Villages because not many are actually kept. Stats are kept for Sumter County, Marion County, Lake County, Lady Lake, Wildwood and now Fruitland Park and other town that the Villages occupies but not for the Community Development District.

Next time try this:
Get out of your car and stand behind it. Take your phone w/camera and take a picture straight up the row of cars toward the strip mall or store and check it out before you exit the store The photo will show what store you are parked in front of. You won't lose your car again. Of course, periodically scrub/delete the pix from your phone

FINALLY! A thread where we can laugh a little.

(TV is so big and so well-known that the rumors will never stop. It is a unique place. Nothing like it anywhere. Just gotta laugh.)

More than once, I have found myself putting that STD rumor in perspective:

You should hear me explain how an increase based on percentages can be relatively meaningless. Example: If there are 2 cases, followed by a total of 3 cases, then you tell me — what is the percentage increase that can be claimed. Just ask Big Pharma how those studies can skew things when touting percentages of increases or decreases —whatever works.

That ridiculous STD rumor grabbed tabloidy headlines more than 10 years ago.

We visited friends in a retirement community in SC, and that was the first thing they — and their neighbors — wanted to hear about. I defended TV’s reputation by tediously demonstrating percentage math — over wine and cheese.

The rumors about TV will never end so we might as well laugh.

Also — re. my white car with the Florida plates, though I have lost it before, I really do usually do that thing with lining up my parking spot with the building and taking a picture with my mind.

I always get a pinstripe on my car because, not only do I like pinstripes, but my pinstripe, more than once, has saved me from pulling on the wrong car door handle. Before my pinstriped car, I once terrified some guy who was sitting in his car, not mine.

AND:

Spoiler! I have to tellya — You, Sir, have a gift for wit. Your post and that picture of your shoes made me snort, in a most unladylike manner.

My advice: I think you will be OK — just be sure not to wear those gorgeous new red shoes with booty shorts.

This is wonderful information! I can’t tell you how many times people made fun of me for buying in TV ... “the sex capitol of Florida” .... my parents lived here for years, I knew it couldn’t be true. But now I have the ammunition to deal with those rumors.
