    "Try sliding down a slope on a new set of skis, or swinging from an arch on a long rope, or running a river, or hiking a slot canyon... that will get your blood pumping. Or do ANYTHING outdoors"

    That's the thing that links the three states noted together (Utah, Colorado, Vermont), havens for outdoor activity (amusingly the University of Utah/Colorado-Boulder/Vermont were top 3 in NCAA skiing the past two years).

    Denigrating Utah only focuses on the impotence of those who do not leave. The roads in Utah go both directions.

    Irony Guy,
    If you live in Utah and you are bored... it's your problem, not Utah's.

    Try sliding down a slope on a new set of skis, or swinging from an arch on a long rope, or running a river, or hiking a slot canyon... that will get your blood pumping. Or do ANYTHING outdoors. There's literally no reason to be bored in Utah (unless you're bored any time your not drunk in a bar).

    I have little time to be bored... but then I probably do different things and have different priorities than you do...

    Don't mind the air pollution, the people make up for it...

    If it is about lifestyle, then I can prolong my life by running red lights ( a scary observation made while driving in Utah)?

    Re: "Does it list "boredom" as a cause of death? If so, Utah should rank high..."

    Makes me wonder what it is about Utah that could spark this level of venom, particularly from someone that loves to denigrate Utah, but apparently can't summon the gumption to leave.

    @Dexter - pulling a picture of something stereotypical of Provo would NOT be girls cheering for the U. All it does is show a lack of knowledge by a reporter in Australia who searched for a young college football fan in Utah.

    Does it list "boredom" as a cause of death? If so, Utah should rank high...

    Has it ever occurred to you that there are University of Utah fans in Happy Valley?

    Get a clue.
