Pepperidge Farm cookies are good, but as far as I know are not available freshly baked and hot off the sheet. I can't imagine any cookie from a bag being better than that.

The disappointing thing is that the Amish women _don't_ look like Kelly McGillis.

So the bottom line on this thread is no one here knows a damn thing about them.

The puppy farms that the Amish run are just awful.

Probably getting a porn flick, no joke. Since the adults have eschewed cars, their offspring have no choice but to use what's available. They are not, however bound by the restrictions of the order until they join the order, no earlier than their late teens and no later than mid twenties. Would you let your 12 year old stay out all night on a date? They do. One huge problem is if they pass out drunk, the horse knows his way home, BUT he can't read stop signs.

This is second hand info....ok, maybe third hand.....

i hear that they do ALL kinds of stuff before they join up....barn orgies, drunken brawls, cow tipping!

So, it has just occurred to me that the reason i dislike the amish so much is based purely in jealousy.

The theory is if they experience the evils of the "English" then joining the order is more significant in they can appreciate what they're giving up.

aside- Those "buggies" have hydraulic brakes, cigar lighters, lights and cost $5k or more. Amish buggies are gray and Mennonite buggies are black.

LEFT turn signals are a REAL good idea. The tourists gawk and follow but the natives just whip out around them without a second thought. The horses take the brunt of it.

The horses take the brunt of it long before someone puts them out of their misery with a car.

All I know is if you put <a href="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=lancaster+county+bar&btnG=Google+Search">Lancaster County Bar</a> into Google, you just get a bunch of lawyers, and not one single place to have a drink!

How fucked up is that!
