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.

Poles switching: As far as I understand, it happens every few hundred thousand years. The next one is overdue, but like earthquakes, these events can't be fitted into a timetable. The cause is, I think, unknown, but has something to do with periodic changes in the Earth's core. The change takes about 6,000 years and during this time the Earth loses its magnetic field, so more UV gets through. Being dark-skinned is an advantage then, otherwise use SPF 2,000.

There are a few isolated areas in the Southern hemisphere where polarity is already reversed and some experts think that this is an omen. Other experts disagree and say that switching is not imminent. Some studies of the polarity contained in various geological strata are underway but the usual rule applies: ask 2 experts and you get 3 different opinions.

That is the limit of my knowledge, I'm afraid.

Would anyone have any sources and/or info about this whole deal about the North and South poles switching? I can look it up myself but I think it would be a great subject to share our views on what will happen IF anything happens at all.

Thanks for your welcome and advice Kim.  We've already been attacked by some angry magpies while cycling.  There are some dangerous critters here.
