Sign of the Times?

The Yahoo Buzz Index is a useful little site that tells you what people are searching for on Yahoo. Usually it’s filled with celebrity names. Will someone please tell me what “Amish Lifestyle Facts” is doing at #5 (the fastest mover) on the index? Is there some Amish reality show, I’m unaware of or are people just planning to trade in their gas guzzler for a buggy?

    PRIMETIME: ABC is also bringing back Primetime for the summer. On Tuesdays at 9 p. m., Primetime: The Outsiders will deal with “people who live by their own rules in worlds unfamiliar to the rest of society.” Tonight’s offering deals with Amish teens and their rumspringa rite of passage. That’s where they take a break and sample the outside world before committing themselves forever to the Amish way of life.

  2. Welcome back Morgan.

    The reason Amish teens have rumspringa is primarily due to the fact that the Amish faith believes you cannot choose a religion until you are an adult. A teen doesn’t have to live among the English, that’s what non-Amish are called, but by doing so, should they choose to remain Amish, then as an adult they can be baptized into the Amish faith.

    Nice party banter lead-in.

    But yeahI admit, the ad for it made me look twice.
