It could have had something to do with having been on the MRT, though. I visited a Mormon community in Bountiful, British Columbia last summer and snooped around and asked people questions. That was bizarre, like the 1800s with 2009 pick-up trucks. Luckily, I didn't get riddled with buckshot.
Awwwww Come on! Mormons are really pretty mainstream, and usually don't live in special communities. Seeing you publicly make a statement like this when it's clear you have little or no knowledge about mormons makes me question the credibility of your book (ie- is this someone who just shoots from the hip and says something controversial just to get readers attention, or is he someone insightful who really researches/tries to understand people before he comments on them etc....)
You might want to watch that if you get more media attention for your book- it could bite you in the ass.
Anyways I'm an exmormon who's fully qualified to answer your questions so I'll tell ya right now-
Those special undies are called garments, and they're sorta like a 1930's bathing suit (in shape) except they're loose and made of a white meshy material. They've got special 'symbols' on different parts of them but the symbols are really just lil right angles.
There, curiosity satisfied?
