Florida Man July 8: Hates Minions

On July 8, 2018, a Daytona Beach man was dressed up as a minion from the popular movies Minions and Despicable Me.

Unfortunately, he came across a deranged self-proclaimed “social media influencer”.

The influencer decided to attack the minion in order to gain some internet fame.

The Florida man then tackled the minion to the ground, beat him, and kicked him repeatedly in the crotch area.

Fortunately, like and good influencer, he had a friend record the whole incident while another looked on.

Police later used this recording as evidence.

Police identified the “social media influencer” as 26-year-old Ryan C. Nihart and charged him with the assault.

Later, a judge sentenced him to 10 days in jail, one year of probation, moral recognition therapy, and restitution for the damaged costume.

I really doubt any amount of likes was worth the punishment he received. Plus, he really looked like a jerk beating up such a beloved character.

Florida Man July 8: Lucky Man

This story is rare and does not showcase how unusual Florida man can be. However, it does show how unusually lucky one Florida man was.

On July 8, 2008, A South Daytona Beach man, James Bush, won a 1 million dollar jackpot from the Firecracker Millionaire Raffle.

We would all consider ourselves pretty lucky to win a million dollars. But this 50-year-old had won 3 times in only two years.

His first big prize was back in 2007. Bush had won a five hundred thousand dollar prize on a Gold Rush scratch-off lottery ticket.

The craziest part of the story was when he decided to buy a ticket on his way to collect his million dollars and one a 1000 bucks.

Florida man usually takes things to an extreme, and I guess that includes the lottery too.

Florida Man July 8 : Doesn’t Cook his Oysters.

On July 8, 2018, a 71 year old Florida man decided to go out for some oysters.

Like many of us, he chose to eat them on the half shell…. raw.

Unfortunately for the man, these oysters carried a flesh-eating bacteria known as Vibrio Vulnificus

Most people can fight this bacteria off, however, due to the man’s advanced age he, unfortunately, could not.

He died in the hospital only two days later.

Nearly 100,000 people are exposed to this bacteria every year in America and only around 100 die.

The deaths are usually due to advanced age or other underlying comorbidities.

Doctors always advis you to cook your fish and shellfish thoroughly.
