Yes, I'd point out though that I'm not originally from Salt Lake City, I was born in California. So even though I think you asked that becuase I'm from SLC, I haven't always been here, in fact I haven't even lived here for a year.

My family is Mormon and I have experienced both California Mormon's and Utah Mormons - let state that the difference is great...
 
  • #17
I'm in Kansas City, KS, now, but I'm planning on going back to California as soon as I can. :) Also I lived in Tehran, Iran for a couple years when I was a kid.

oh you i caught that, i was just guessing because i know that a lot of people of that faith go to school in SLC; i was just there last october to watch my cousin get married actually. the reason i asked was because i wanted to point out the similarily between LDS and Freemasonry/Rosicrucianism, a lot of people are unaware of such things and i think it is something that people should know, espesialy if they practice such beleifs.

I am in transit back and forth between North and South America. I have no definite nationality (despite what a passport might say) due to the confused geography of my birthplace. What I might claim and what might actually be could be two different things. Being born 'on the fence' I take what is convenient at a given time.

I'm sorry I guess I don't know what you're referring to.

well it is a complicated topic climbhi which is why i just eluded to it in the hopes that you might look into it yourself. however, sense you asked and so as not to hijack this thread any more than i have, i started another thread in the religion forums here:

*ahem*

I just said I live in Troy! I am typing this message at work at the RPI Tech Park in North Greenbush.

I am from an area of Texas known as the Crossroads.

No, I do not speak with a "Southern drawl". However, I do have a hard time distinguishing a genuine Texas accent.

Yes, there are cowboys in Texas; most of the ones here carry cell-phones.
