    did anyone catch this new show on TLC? it's interesting as all hell...if you don't know it's basically about four 20 something amish kids going to new york...the first episode was really interesting about them breaking the news to their families and all that..and i'm really hoping it doesn't turn into some trashy reality show cuz this has some serious potential

    not really..at least how i understand the term...this isn't something condoned by their terms...it's either stay and do what you've always done and experience nothing else..or leave and be shunned

    but as far as i know rumspringa is like a time of exploration to find yourself and make sure you really wanna do the amish thing...all of the kids say they're leaving to find themselves, but it's not something the church or their families is making them do or even like


    and holy fuck the amish a cold-hearted people

    Did you hear about those amish dudes that got arrested for cutting other guys beards off? lol It was like a gang of amish kids pissed at their dads or something like that so they started cutting beards off.

    There have been a few interesting documentaries on TV here about the Amish. One follows them travelling around Britain and trying out different lifestyles, called Amish: The World's Squarest Teenages, another called Living with the Amish and the most recent one on the BBC called Amish: A Secret Life, which is a really good fly on the wall documentary. I think they seem like pretty nice people, despite their oddities.

    I want to see this. I've been fascinated by then since my class took an 8th grade field trip out to Lancaster to see how they all live and shit.
