Terrific Headlines!

I’m new at blogging so I’m not sure how to use pages yet but I *think* if I keep adding new funny headlines to this post I will be able to move the post up? If not this will probably be deleted before you ever knew about it. Haha.

Would the Amish Use This Laptop?

The non-profit One Laptop Per Child has engineered laptops for the world’s computerless masses. Given that billions of people don’t have electricity, OLPC has designed laptops that can operate off-the-grid, perfect for Rwandan cities, aboriginal Canadian settlements — and Amish colonies.

The Amish live in a constellation of agrarian spots in the northern United States and they’re famous for their opposition to some modern technologies, specifically high-voltage electricity. But like many religious close-knit religious communities, they tend to pick and choose which specific products to adopt. If the Amish could have the computer without the electricity, would they use them?
