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 says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

I don't watch much TV when I'm at hoome, but this past week I was house-sitting (CAT-sitting, really) for a friend, so I pigged out on MSNBC, Food Network, and a few other channels.  She has Time-Warner Cable, and they moved Animal Planet to a higher (more expensive) tier...the SOBs!

Humans are a planetary disaster now...there are too many of us, for starters, and we have been reproducing at an alarming rate.  (And that Edsel-faced InSanetorum wants to limit access to contraceptives, or outlaw them completely?  Sheee-yit!  There should be a way to sneak the stuff into the water supply... everywhere!)

sk8eycat, Love Animal Planet!  We were in Las Vegas this past week with our kids 17 & 20 and they wanted to go to the Shark Exhibit in (I forgot which hotel), and the exhibit was all about how humans have over-killed the animals that are killers in the ocean such as sharks and there was a sign talking about do you think humans are a  (damn, I'm losing my words, I swear), but like a scourge on the earth instead of part of the natural flow of things because we are the only species who lives on all continents in all conditions and ruin the natural order of things.  Like a cancer on a healthy cell!  I'm sure fundies at that exhibit were horrified by the thought!  I think it's true.

@Chris Dodds: MSNBC?

I was glued to that this past week....I can't believe That R-money, InSanitorum, and Gingrinch are the best the GOP can dig up.  Even Raygun was smarter than the three of them put together, and he was showing signs of Alzheimer's as early as 1980.

I enjoy Rachel Maddow and Al Sharpton very much.

And there's always Animal Planet...

"intellectually stimulating television programming"

…rhymes with, "Hit Florence" and starts with a "B".

Can anyone tell me where I can find some intellectually stimulating television programming?  The most stimulating programming I've seen recently is Jerry Springer.

It's nice to know that there are like minded intelligent people here. I'm really luck to have found this forum.
