'Florida' means 'Flowering Easter'. 'Easter', also known as 'Ishtar' and 'Semiramis'.

'Orlando' (the city) apparently was named after 'Orlando Reeves'. 'Orlando' is the Italian form of 'Roland' which means "(having a) famous land." 'Reeves' means 'cool','breeze' (as in 'wind').
So 'Orlando Reeves' really means something along the lines of 'Famous land of breeze/wind' or '(The)Wind has (a) famous land' or 'Lucifer has a famous land' or '(A)Famous land that Lucifer has'.

Still adds up since 'Semiramis' (and related) are still aspects of 'Lucifer' in the sense of 'rebelling'.

Nick asked this in relation to what is under Florida in a old post:

Quote
"What did the effeminate man of the Lion search for down there?"

The response was something along the lines of a 'magic pool' or the 'fountain of youth'. Nick's response was this:

Quote
"What it really boils down to is what's under Florida. Like I said the girly lion looked but he was looking in the wrong place."                        
                              
"Well it's not a pool of magic water. But it is metaphorically accurate."

I'll admit, I didn't originally understand what the 'girly lion' reference was. Is that a movie or something?

This is may be related.

is there any significance to Florida's climate  being warmer than other states

I've been meaning to keep track of them but there are a large amount of news articles and reports of lizards and other reptiles invading peoples homes and overrunning the streets in Florida. . . for what its worth.

Maybe referring to Florida before its Ice Age? The land that is now covered by the ocean maybe is what 'boiled down'?

Ahaha I didn’t catch it until you reposted the quote, I think it’s a definite hint. In the Atlantis thread it was said the “lost continent” lay near the coast of Florida. If seismic activity triggered a fall, there could be dormant geysers or magma chambers near the sunshine state. There are several sulphur springs.

“Horus Khenty En Maatyu, Horus as the head of those who see not- colloquially known as the Blind Horus. This is the Horus represented when Set blinded him in battle. He’s shown as a shrew mouse in this form. A fun aside: because Horus’ left eye was believed to be the moon, worshippers used the story of Set tearing out Horus’ left eye as an explanation for why the moon appeared in different phases.“

The Mouse is the god of the sheeple, who the elite obviously see as vermin.

Horus’ followers were called Blacksmiths, like those of Ptah, Yahweh, Hephaistos, Vulcan.

The documentary description is interesting:
For his second documentary feature, Errol Morris originally set out to chronicle Vernon, FL, because it had the highest rate of a particular sort of insurance fraud -- dismemberment performed for profit -- than any other place in the country.

In the youtube comments for the film, found this:

Vernon is a surname, from a masculine name that is derived from the Gaul word vern for Alder tree (also springlike, flourishing, or full of life) and a Gaulish-Latin suffix indicating a location. Thus Vernon is a "place of alders". Variants include Vern, Vernard, Verne, Verna, Sberna, Sberno.

[sic] He was warned that “Nub City” at night because it was too dangerous. At first Morris found [Vernon] not too dangerous, but fabulously weird. He interviewed some insurance fraudsters and for the first time in his life, he got beat up. In hindsight, “it was sort of unpleasant,” he says.

From the 1950s-1970s insurance adjusters noticed a strange peculiarity. An alarmingly amount of bodily dismemberment insurance claims were coming from one single small town in Florida. Men, women and entire families were taking out insurance policies with "dismemberment clauses" that paid out in the unfortunate event of limb loss. At one point the majority of the town were amputees and over 60% of all dismemberment claims in the country were coming from a town with an population in the low thousands.

This earned the town the nicknames "Stumptown" and "Nub City". In the 1980s a documentary filmmaker went to investigate but was quickly met with sealed lips and death threats. He instead changed title of the film and entire direction of the project. There is reported to be a fair amount of footage and interviews that didn't make the cut.

Insinuations of mafia ties, unpaid debts and other theories and interviews by other journalists have been seemingly scrubbed from the internet as well. There is absolutley more to this story than simple insurance fraud. The payouts were considerable and paid by the limb, causing many to "lose" multiple limbs. Yet, the vast majority stayed within the podunk town and saw no noticeable increase in quality of life.
Quote
Not long after pursuing the topic, Morris learned first hand about the dangers he was warned of. When asked why he dropped the idea of doing a feature about these self amputations, he provided the following anecdote:

“I knocked on the door of a double-amputee, who was missing an arm and a leg on opposite sides of the body – the preferred technique so that you could use a crutch. His buff son-in-law, a Marine, beat me up. I decided whatever I was doing was really, really stupid and dangerous.”

Around 1981, the filmmaker Errol Morris rolled into town. He wanted to tell the story of Nub City. He did not succeed: The film, according to his Web site, "had to be retooled when his subjects threatened to murder him."

What Morris produced instead was 56 minutes of surreal monologues from an idle police officer, an obsessive turkey hunter, a pastor fixated on the word "therefore," a couple convinced that the sand they keep in a jar is growing, and, among others, an old man who claims he can write with both hands at once.

"He picked all the nuts in Vernon," City Clerk Sharon Cobb said recently. Though Vernon, Florida was not a blockbuster, Roger Ebert called it an "unforgettable film."

Two years later, Vernon became briefly infamous again. On June 20, 1984, according to the Associated Press, the Vernon City Council was discussing the firing of the town's only police officer. As a former schoolteacher spoke in protest, council president Narvel Armstrong gaveled him down and adjourned the meeting.

The next part would be hard to believe if weren't on tape. A cameraman for WMBB in Panama City happened to be there, and his footage shows Armstrong, then 46, a slight woman with a white blouse and a helmet of brown hair, walk past another woman and backhand her in the head.

You see a barefoot young man join the fight. He pins the teacher against a wall and stands over him. The teacher raises his hands to shield his head, but it does not work. The barefoot man's right fist is tireless. He clocks the teacher six times before the camera turns away. Later you see the teacher's face covered in blood.

You see an older man fighting too. He is thick at the middle, balding, wearing khakis. He punches a woman while the barefoot man holds her arm. He assists in the thrashing of the teacher. You see his right hand whooshing through the air, connecting with flesh, and you look for his left hand but it is gone.

In its place is a metal hook.

The Florida Department of Transportation is spending $50-million to widen State Road 79, which runs through Vernon like an asphalt spine, so the folks in Panama City Beach will have a four-lane highway on which to flee from hurricanes. Some officials say the demolition is unavoidable. Spokesman Tommie Speights explains the decision to run the highway through Vernon:

"The city fathers and the county and the general public all came to a consensus that if they bypassed it, it would really kill the city."

His choice of words is striking, because almost every Vernon resident interviewed about the issue by the St. Petersburg Times said exactly the opposite: that the widening, not the bypassing, would result in the city's death.

Almost everyone said that.

There were two notable exceptions.
Both are local politicians. Both used their official positions to support the widening. And both stand to make a profit.

One is James Boswell, Ward's predecessor as mayor, and a former engineer for DOT.

The other exception is Narvel Armstrong, the same Narvel Armstrong who smacked the woman upside the head at the council meeting in 1984, the same Narvel Armstrong who was suspended from office by Gov. Bob Graham, the same Narvel Armstrong who pleaded no contest to simple battery and got off with a fine and a suspended sentence, the same Narvel Armstrong who was quickly re-elected and recently got a certificate for 25 years of service from the Florida League of Cities, the same Narvel Armstrong who remains on the council today.

"I've never been wantin' to do anything for myself," she said when asked to explain her enduring popularity. "I always want to do what the people want done."

Once the Tom Thumb convenience store is torn down, Armstrong's house is likely to become highway-front property, according to real estate agent Max Wells. The county assessed its value at $22,150 this year. Armstrong has put it up for sale. She wants $365,000.

You may hear a note of eerie familiarity in the news that Vernon itself is about to be dismembered for cash.

There is more.

Remember the video of the brawl in City Hall?

The barefoot man is Armstrong's son Coleman.

And the man with the hook?

Her husband, J.C. Armstrong, who died in 2002 at the age of 71.

When a reporter asked her how he lost his hand, this is what Armstrong said:

"I think you know."

So the question is are able-bodied rural men going to disable themselves permanently for the modern-day equivalent of $15,000

The state park caverns are not too far, tunnels likely stretch to Vernon and beyond.

The documentary was made to ridicule local (paranormal?) claims, yet several interviewees show magickal minds.

If they were attacked it makes no sense “monsters” would allow so many amputees to flee during feeding frenzy. Were they dealing with human[oid] assailants?
