Couldn't find any record of a curse neither from the youth or go shoot tribes nor anywhere else for that matter nevertheless what we are about to talk about to me seems nothing less than a curse on the land pump out bomb. Had to throw that in there for you okay. Love in nineteen sixty. It was decided that the town's current reservoir snow creek. Reservoir was not large enough to meet. The town's water needs it was decided that a damn a new reservoir was needed and construction began in hobbs.

We're facts that. I found about utah. Shall we absolutely all right so in march nineteen sixty eight. Six thousand sheep died mysteriously in skull valley. The us army conducted open air tests of the nerve agent vx days before for years. The army denied that its tests had anything to do with the death of the sheep though. Investigative reports concluded otherwise church. And that's my peoples that government see. That's like that's like spreading that easy for gas in the close encounters movie and they gassed all of them. Livestock and shipment. I guess exactly ex- gas kills people's. Oh yeah we'll two men from barrel were charged with practicing medicine without a license after drilling a hole in a woman's head in january two thousand sound like egan. The men were accompanied by producers of the television. Show twenty twenty. Which i don't know why the hell they would go along with this but who are doing research for a story about transformation. The practice involves drilling one or two holes in the person's head in order to increase blood flow yeah out and supposedly decrease symptoms of depression. Well lobotomy would usually do that. The power drill to the frontal lobe is not exactly something i would recommend. No that's a it's one of those. You definitely don't try at home. No now now. In one thousand nine hundred seventy one utah. Now looking this apparently correct way to call utah resident is utah him but you are locals. Do not call themselves calm utahns.
