Hang With Friends

Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Seth Andrews' Rebuttal to "10 Women Christian Men Shouldn't Marry" (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Jan 22. 13 Replies

It seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

Bertold, I haven't had spaghetti in SO long...years!  I'm drooling.  Now, THAT is the kind of communion I'd appreciate.  (Are the incantations in Italian, or are there none?)

Raaaaaaa-mennnnnn!

Patricia, I agree! Newer US bills do have a little color, but we're way behind other civilized nations. And it's great how the Canadian $10 note includes the Invisible Pink Unicorn! :-)

Bertold, I'll take tangible noodly calories over an invisible sky daddy any day!

Comment by sk8eycat 6 hours ago

Yeah, it does.  Harder to counterfeit, for one thing.  Larger bills do have a metal strip embedded in the paper...but they ARE kinda boring.

I just use a Sharpie pen, scratch out ghod, and write in "Dogs"  or whatever I feel like writing that day.

FFRF always has an event at their annual convention....a drawing for pre-1957 bills...called "Clean Money."

I just use my debit card as much as possible.  I'd like to get one with a Grumpy Cat (or Ceiling Cat) photo on it, but I want to change banks....I hate Wells Fart, and now One West is trying to merge with another mortgage criminal outfit.  Do I have to belong to some group to get into a credit union?

How about a Social InSecurity Recipients Credit Union?

It would be great if we could do origami to edit the slogan as suggested by the American Humanist Association:

'IN GOOD WE TRUST' on a $1 bill
