    LOL, l doubt 10 people outside OK brand the state with a seriesvrelatively few have watched. Every state has it's crazies. Come to CO and go meet a few mountain hermits - or trolls as some call them out in the Rockies. How about the pot users (not addicts, because you can't be addicted to pot) who are often homeless but whose every waking moment is to find a joint or a bag along the highway some tourist threw out on their way to the airport. How about CA, no crazies there. NY? Huh-uh. Everyone is sane.

    The people who watched this documentary and think these characters are some crazy outlier have never spent any amount of time in small town Oklahoma.

    I mean, sure, but this is the case in pretty much every state. I grew up in the outer suburbs/exurbs of Detroit, and there were plenty of crazy people there as well. Having spent significant amounts of time in both Michigan and Oklahoma, my personal opinion is that most of this country is more similar than people tend to think.

    Yes, the high desert area of Southern California is pretty nutty.

    Example: Mad Mike Hughes of Barstow who killed himself trying to launch a rocket and prove the earth was flat.

    Crazies are everywhere. It's very similar to Covid-19 honestly - we'd find it's far more widespread if we had better testing. lol

    Man, what a ride... After watching it, we had to find his music videos, and y'all really need to see those too if you haven't already, also quite insane.

    Great story on the music video weirdness:

    He was born in Kansas, grew up in Wyoming and North Texas. Owned a pet store in Arlington with his brother until he was killed then moved to Oklahoma.

    I know of some exotic animal nutjobs in the Hill Country west of Austin and in the Piney Woods of northeast Texas. There also some large/exotic animal hunting ranches scattered around Texas. It is not unique to Oklahoma, and yes, most exotic animal people are a bit off their rocker.

    Itís not just exotics. I think you can experience that anytime you run into people who relate more to animals than they do humans. I saw this a lot back in the mid 80ís when I worked down at the fairgrounds and we would set up for the horse, dog and cat shows. There were those who I believe, their only interaction with humans were at the shows. The rest of their time was spent with their kennels of animals.

    The main reason we sold our acreage was because the guy on the land next to us was an animal hoarder and abuser, and an all around nut job. My wife no longer felt safe to live there because of him, so we packed up and sold the place. Then two months after we moved we found out he was murdered.
