GITTIN IT DONE!
(Excerpt) Read more at youtu.be ...
And that’s how you do that.
You should watch them changing a light bulb.
Wait, I want to change my post.
How many Amish does it take to change a light bulb.
80. One to hold the bulb, 79 to turn the house.
Now THATS Cooperation at its finest! No Government assistance needed.
they’ll probably be made aware that they needed a special license...and be fined...
Obama: “You didn’t build that”.
ahahaha WE HAVE THE VIDEO Barry!!
I heard a news report on a local radio station yesterday of police being dispatched to move a ladder from a roadway. I guess the motorists in the area were not capable of moving it. Now, maybe there was more to the story than met my ears, but it seems as if it fits a pattern.
When I played Monopoly I moved many a house all by myself.
Note to self: Never promise an Amish friend that you’ll help him move.
I like when they kick up their heels and raise holy barn.
- I had a tiny beer mug but it took forever to quench my thirst .
HAHAHAHAHA that’s a good one!
Dang, they must have been union, they worked for 2 minutes then took a 3 minute break. :-)
With no electrical and plumbing(?) etc makes the house a lot lighter without all that copper and wiring etc.
Must not have advertised though as some Govt ‘loudmouth’ would have said they weren’t doing ‘something’ properly and try to shut them down....
Or charge them with ‘too many people’ assembling at one time.
#10. You can’t go by me, but I thought it was very funny.
I was driving south on I-5 and there was a tire in the roadway. I called the local police station who patched me through to CHP to have them move the tire before it caused an accident. I wouldn’t dare stop and get out of my car on that freeway. A sure death sentence.
I was the hat.
You know they put it down on one guy’s foot, that always happens when you are moving stuff at least once!
Good point, maybe that was “it”.
Now that’s what I call a “house raising”.
They move houses this way in the Philippines; the custom is called Bayanihan.
Of course, when the house is built mostly of bamboo with a thatched roof, it’s a lot lighter and thus more easily picked up.
So we’re taking Card Carrying, Uncut Beard Wearin, German speaking, Voluntarily Hard Workin, Electricity Avoiding AMISH-amish? Got it. Glad they can co-exist even when geographically surrounded by us regular less disciplined folks.
Thanks. The Amish model video was well-worth the click-through...;-0
Omigosh, how many laws and OSHA regulations did they break?
Reminds me of the Luggage from the Colour of Magic...
