I had the understanding that Amish people refused to use technology.

Apart from you know, horses and carts and iron and... er... technology...

Not sure about Omish people though. Would they be related to Ohmish people ? - they're said to have a high resistance to electricity Tongue

Pun-tastic!

Ohmish people have very special powers. Their Kindles operate with no batteries, as they conduct vibrational energy out their butts, (as Bishadi already explained).
Ohmish romance authors are going broke however, since they only get 17 % of wholesale, so they market their little fishies, to stay afloat.

RE: omish on the web
I was under the impression it was Amish? There's a pretty large population of these plain loving people in my part of rural Missouri. As far as I understand a group of Amish can dictate their own beliefs to a certain extent although I believe the use of technology is forbidden. I did watch a documentary one time that was talking about how since the world has changed so quickly in the past few decades that they are coming around and starting to accept more technology.

(Deodorant should be one, imo)

It may be menonites, which is a branch of Amish religion, which is much more accepting of technological advances. They drive cars, own debit cards, dress in horrid floral print dresses, that kinda stuff....

The Amish aren't forbidden from using all technology.

They have a thing against any tech that they believe will tear apart the family unit. I would imagine Kindles would likely fall under that category, seeing as how most books are against the rules already, and so are forms of entertainment such as television and music (of the good variety).

They also like to do things the old fashioned way, partly because they feel that it is important to work with your hands and be involved in every aspect of your survival. Passing down the knowledge needed to build your own house for instance is very important to them. So is the sense of community, they believe strongly in the helping of neighbors. Can't argue with that. I wish I knew someone who would not only show me how to build a house but would also help me do it.

I wouldn't enjoy any other aspect of the Amish way of life however. It's pretty brutal. No good music would be one of the kickers. No electric guitar Sad no cool shoes. No dirty sex. Boooorrrrriiiinnnnnngggg.

RE: omish on the web
The Amish have had cell phones for quite some time. They take a practical approach in using the telephone in limited ways, as they do with most forms of technology. I shit you not. The Amish are pretty technically savvy... they just don't show it off.

I have to assume the Amish would use a Kindle to look at a text book on carpentry or animal husbandry or crop rotation. But if they have one, I'm also going to assume it will be used for other things such as entertaining reading.... life is pretty boring without a good book to read. The Bible doesn't provide nearly enough good smut to satisfy the average Amish person. Wink
