Strangest Thing I've Read Today...

From a 1972 Ensign article on the history of Provo -
"Provo played host as the fifty-sixth annual general conference of the Church was convened in the tabernacle there (April 4 to 7, 1886), and again for the fifty-seventh annual conference (April 6 to 8, 1887). Young boys among the worshipers climbed to the rough-finished portions of the building and hung over the rafters, enjoying a view of the speakers and listening to their counsel until their young innards hurt."

My young innards quite often hurt during general conference...nice to see an acknowledgement of that in an official church magazine.
