So, fellow Pitmonks...

How would you fancy being Amish?

Now, I know that Amish can't drink booze, have wild sex orgies, or watch tv, but think about it...

They work hard, they keep busy, and, generally, don't seem bothered by material possessions, and seem to have good morals.

Not sure about you, but it sounds half-decent.

Also, I'd look fly with a black hat.

Go pit, go!

Theres some show gonna be on British telly where they flew over an Amish family to see what life is like in the real world.. It's highly ironic that they even accepted to do a TV show.

Yeah, and other Amish communities were getting really angry over it. I'm just thinking, How the fuck did they even know????

edit: The Amish are so rude, too. I was just trying to snap a photo, but they kept shielding their faces and running away.

Nah, they're allowed to ride in cars and watch TV so long as it's not where they live. They just can't own cars and what not.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

I live in a town with MANY Amish people. They're nice, but they seem very ignorant of everything.

I like how my life is now thanks.

I just watched the first episode...shit was funny. Got put with a load of South London chavs and got walked around their estate being told stuff like "Uh, I think it was round the back of this house....dude got shot in the head". I couldn't stop laughing.

I don't see what problem anyone could have with a fairly quiet, highly religious and highly peaceful group of people who've largely gotten on with their lives for a few hundred years .
#17
Can you be an atheist amish? Or an Amish Atheist? Does that exist? Isn't it only a religious thing though? They do interact with other people who use technology though, right? How many more questions can I ask before you stop reading this? What's toast all about? Toasted bread....Wow! Awesome! Excellent! Whoo!

It's not that theres a problem, but the highly wrong TV show airing is what I think is ridiculous.. I look quite highly at the Amish ways, working for the community and together.. I just don't buy into that God crap. Oh and getting rid of music and TV.. I'd probably die from boredom.

I live like 3 miles from an amish community.

Nice people but they reek of ass and the horse and buggy road hazards can get frustrating.

The lack of electricity and my own insomnia would make it near impossible for me.

Swap the guitar for a violin and I'll agree with you.

I would live in an Amish community for a week or two, just to learn and experience something much different than my way of life.

Try driving around horse and buggies going 5 mph over hilly terrain and crazy amish guys doing three lane u-turns in the middle of state roads.

I can stand being without technology, just me and my cello or guitar for about two months. Then I need to check up on stuff. I do like dropping off the radar and growing my beard from time to time though.
...In my opinion.

You wouldn't make it in an Amish community. You would have no way of listening to Rush.

I live in an area with a high number of Amish people. They seem nice enough, but I couldn't live their way of life. I'd miss technology too much.
#40
I can work hard and have good morals without giving up the conveniences of modern life.
Also, I'll probably live longer.

If an amish person gets sick or injured, are they taken to a normal hospital, or does someone in their community try to heal them? Do they have amish hospitals?
