Dear GYA, Everyone's mad because I knocked over a dumb rock. Get over it -- I'm out here saving lives, people! I'm making sure 200-million-year-old boulders aren't crushing little kids. Hell, what have you done lately to save a child? Did you know that Goblin Valley is filled with giant boulders that could easily kill you at any moment? Damn it, it's a death maze. If anything, everyone should be out there right now, smashing rocks, savin' lives! Anything happening this weekend after I destroy all those stupid 200-million-year-old boulders? -Glenn Taylor, American Fork---
