Or asked questions like why don't the Amish use technology (or do they)? Or why some Amish men have beards and others don't? Or what Rumspringa is? Or do they travel? Or is dating allowed? Then this episode of The Scramble is for you! You'll get those questions answered and many more by our maintenance manager, Verton, who just happens to be Amish.
