Okay, I don't want to sound dumb .. but can you just decide to become amish? It didn't seem like the sort of thing that you could just choose to be.. it seemed sorta like due to the culture and such, you had to be sort of born into it .. I don't know.
Does anyone know if there is any research on this? I'm really rather interested in the whole amish thing, I take the greyhound bus all the time, when I go home to see my parents, and I always see the amish on the bus, and I always want to talk to them / ask them what their life is like, but I imagine they'd think my questions were rude ..
Sorry, hope this isn't out of line.
