As an outdoorsman, I think Utah is the best value in the nation (climbing, canyoneering, snowboarding, hiking, etc). And while I'm socially tolerant towards people's private lives, I like public areas to be conservative. I can see the allure.

Yeah right. With 14 wives and no birth control, you can pwn the maternity ward.

Does this mean that Utah is no longer swarming with mormons?

Utah is beautiful.
Driving across it is almost a religious experience.

Utah is a beautiful state. It's too bad people can't enjoy it more because they're are afraid of teh Mormons!

Having read your post, NikolaiFarkoff [TotalFark], even after being interested in hiking, snowboarding, etc...I can't convince myself to come up with one good reason why one would move there. I'd be interested in doing those things you mentioned, but...LIVING in Utah?

/plus i wouldn't be able to stand those Mormons

A friend lived in Salt Lake. He said, never go fishing with a Mormon. They drink all your beer, and smoke all your cigarettes.

It was a matter of time with this non-Mo dilution. My aunt and uncle lived there, and when they came to visit here, the first stop was the Stockyards Restaurant (pre-pussification... they got rid of the crack biscuits with honey butter for prickly pear butter, gah!!! *cry*), where they'd order three martinis in a row.

Utah will now be more interesting.

unlikely trumps obvious tag?

mormons and their "no sex before marriage unless its my children" policies. crazy folk.

/weren't they the state that always introduces these ass-backwards laws that get continually repealed/unconstitutional (from their senators/house reps)
 
2007-11-16 11:41:29 AM  
Won't they just kill the parents and marry the children?

Utah is a beautiful state. The Mormons there are as humorous and ignorant as Southern Baptists in the Bible Belt. Maybe if more Americans moved into Utah and mixed things up a bit, it would be a better place to live without so much repression.

You know, it is a beautiful state in many places. I often drive up US-89 along the east side of the Wasatch Mountains and I think, this is heaven.

Zion National Park is well worth the visit. If you in the area visiting the Grand Canyon, it is worth the 4-5 hour drive.

Just a FYI if you ever travel through Utah. When eating at a restaurant, don't order coffee or colas and they will think you are a Mormon and will treat you better.

I would never move to Utah. Three words: crazy porn laws.

Maybe they should dress up like indians again and kill everyone trying to immigrate there.

Dont forget Utah has tasty LDS women.

This thread can be summed us thusly:

"MORMONS ARE RUDE, IGNORANT, AND INTOLERANT. EVEN IF WE DON'T KNOW ANY PERSONALLY AND DONT KNOW THEIR DOCTRINE WORTH TWO SHIATS WE STILL FARKING HATE THEM! THEY'RE SO EFFING STUPID! HATE HATE HATE. THEY SHOULD BE MORE TOLERANT LIKE US!

Thanks for showing me the lights folks! I am now going to start drinking again, stop going to church, and preach love like everybody here!

I just bought a house there two years ago so I'm getting a (equity) kick out of this story. If anyone needs a place to rent in Riverdale, my tenants just moved out so it's available. 5 bedroom/2 bath...

Srsly tho, Utah is awesome but you have to be ok with the dramatically different culture if you're going to live there. I always keep in the back of my mind that if enough people move there to dilute the stranglehold the mormon religion has on it, I'll move back. The wife would scream bloody murder but I think she'd go along with it and adapt over time.

skrewewe: Maybe they should dress up like indians again and kill everyone trying to immigrate there.

This is chock full of WIN. Well played sir.

That's an old Baptist joke, the punchline is to take TWO Mormons with you.

Eh - Salt Lake City itself is a nice island of heathens (especially my Sugarhouse neighborhood). The liquor laws are more than a bit quirky, but they're being reworked. All in all, I have no regrets moving back to Utah after my stint in military.

I seem to get less missionaries at my door than when I was living elsewhere, even - They seem to get the point that if I live here and haven't joined the flock, I'm not interested (even if Grandma keeps giving them my name).
