Well, for one thing (among many things) you get a Govt Park Ranger with Shutdown Orders, otherwise known as the Yellowstone Gestapo. Yes, it’s amazing and scary what influence a sudden govt impetus of barking orders can do to the psychology of an otherwise low level automaton. As he’s barking the newly sanctioned decrees his sense of personal power suddenly rises like a Viagra-loaded erection.
