Now before you start reading, I would like to mention that this is not to tick anyone off, but perhaps shed a little light on some things that we are taught from a small age and as we grow older, we should absolutely know better than to do.

Where shall we start? There is a book that is extremely common throughout the world. It helps us with learning and understanding some very simple things along with more difficult things.

From different languages to fixing things around the house, understanding politics and national parks, the list goes on and on. But there seem to be a couple of editions that have been missed, that could be incredibly useful.

Montana could really benefit from having its own "Montana for Dummies" books or even a "Yellowstone National Park for Dummies" would make sense at this point.

A "Welcome To Yellowstone National Park" welcome gift maybe? Given to everyone entering the park?


Since Yellowstone National Park opened for its official season, there have been 4 different incidents that have made national news. From trying to take the perfect selfie with a bison, bringing a baby elk for a ride in your car, to helping a baby bison out of the creek.

@abc7newsbayarea A visitor to Yellowstone National Park was caught on camera in an incredibly dangerous stunt taking a selfie with a bison laying on the ground only one or two feet away. Park officials warn the public to not approach bison and other wildlife in the park. #bison #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark #nationalpark #animal #wildlife #selfie #news #fyp #foryoupage #abc7news ♬ original sound - ABC7 News

It's odd that it is always grown adults that make these headlines. I mean, if you have no common sense I can understand how you would do some of these ridiculous things.

I don't know why people think that Yellowstone National Park is some sort of petting zoo. I didn't think that there would need to be a sign for ADULTS that says "This is not a petting zoo, please don't get close to ANY animal".

Could Montana benefit from having a "Yellowstone for Dummies" or "Montana for Dummies" book? Absolutely.
