And it's Polyester!

I'm remembering fuzz from an old sci-fi book where these weird aliens got away with posing as humans on planets where much skin showing or nudity was taboo.. hence the good guys/gals were almost naked. Great illustrations come to mind.. This got me thinking, maybe some "devout Muslims" are really hiding that they are a different species and the rest of the Muslim population is being used for cover.

Too much polyurethane fumes in the house.. my mind is toast. (been doing home projects)

Hangin' out in Hurricane UT I happened across a reservoir where the locals swim and picnic and whatnot. The locals, however, include a substantial polygamist population from nearby Hildale/Colorado City. They are an interesting, remarkably family oriented, extremely modest people. The men keep their shirt sleeves down to their hands, as a rule, and the women wear dresses with jeans under them, commonly.

At the reservoir, some of kids went swimming, fully clothed. Swimming with long sleeves is one thing, but swimming in a dress with jeans? I was told by a non-polygamist local that occasionally one of the kids will get tired and weighted down by the wet clothes and need help in the water. Fortunately, there's usually SEVERAL brothers, sisters, wives, etc to rescue them.

Though I've got some huge issues with the alleged treatment of women/girls and the general philosophy of polygamy, I felt kinda sorry for them because the LDS (Morman) folks clearly want little to do with them. Hmmmmmmm.... selling similar swimsuits and any other specialty items for the polys in southwest UT might be an interesting part-time business, as I plan to retire somewhere in that area, and I don't think the LDS community wants to serve that niche market.
