Default OT: Mormons (again)

I know the season is under way today... move as necessary.

But I need to ask our LDS friends something: does every Mormon know every other Mormon, lol.

I had a guy come into my ski shop in Lone Tree last night with his six kids wearing a BYU hat. I casually mentioned that a guy I'm going into business with was a BYU grad and he was like, "Yep, I know him.... do you know ___."

"Yep."

"Oh that's my sister."

So I just started naming all the Mormons I knew - and seemingly half my high school was Mormon - and the guy was just like, "yep... know him" after each one.

It was surreal.

He was just messing with you. A favorite Mormon joke.

We used to play that game in Korea. "Oh, Kim? Yeah, I know her."

This is a well-known phenomenon here.
It's funny actually. I used to work with a guy who was "in" and we'd travel around the west and damn, if that guy didn't run into someone he knew, or a relative of someone he knew within the church every trip we took. It got us some good hotel rooms and comp'd dinners quite a bit. No word of wisdom violations though, unfortunately.

Sweden has 9400 Lds, whereas Colorado has 147000...sweden is slightly larger than California. Colorado has a good size LDS population.

147,000 LDS seems like a large number....until you figure the average Mormon male has 17 wives. The average wife has 11 children.

It really only breaks down to a handful of families.

The weird thing for me is that we're not completely sure which mom is mine. We know my dad (duh - of course). But my mom could be one of three or four women.

What complicates this is that I didn't join the church until I was almost 20.

I'm doing the trial period membership deal that I found on livingsocial, the church gave me 3 girls that would be my "wives".

At any rate, I have 30 days and then I return them or become a member. Anyone that wants the livingsocial coupon deal, pm me.

I thought it was the opposite. At least at my house.

How do you keep a Mormon girl from fooling around? You marry her!

Also 24Champ, your avatar makes me feel all warm in my bathing suit places.
