Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 850
Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Richard Dawkins, Growing Up in the Universe

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 14. 2 Replies

Here is an oldie, the young Richard Dawkins teaching kids about the universe. I especially like the one demonstrating how the eye evolved. This should answer those who believe it was impossible to evolve an eye. Continue

TheraminTrees doesn't release videos very often these days,  but when he does, they are positive GEMS.  Most recent of his works is the following, wherein he dismantles some of the common rebuttals atheist get from believers when we assert our…Continue

Ice cold watermelon. With a glass of strawberry ginger lemonade! Happy to meet you too, Tammy S. My youngest sisters name is Tammy, and she was my favorite growing up. Love the name. Good memories.

Ice cream sandwiches sound wonderful Joe!

Ice cream sandwiches do sound good, it is hot here today as well.

I'm all "cookied" out.  How about slow-smoked barbecued ribs?

Comment by Tammy S on May 19, 2012 at 4:55pm

Thanks Steph and Tony, I'm very happy to meet you. Did someone say cookie???

Comment by dr kellie on May 19, 2012 at 3:30pm

I wish you idiots would shut the f up and stop posting about cookies.

 

Lol.

I am new to these groups, but I try to always be a nice person, and friendly to others, I think being that way slows aging.

Comment by sk8eycat on May 19, 2012 at 1:30pm

Hah! I blew my diet and blood sugar through the roof this morning; I ate a fudge-chocolate chip brownie for breakfast.  It. Was. Worth. It!

On the other topic: I can no longer remember how many times people have said to me, "You're an atheist?  But. But you're so nice." 

I don't think I'm particularly nice; one of my nicknames is "La Bruja del Hielo," ... for practical jokes, etc.

BTW it pi$$es me off when people are surprised that atheists are "nice."  WTF do they expect?  Horns?

I should carry a little list of atheist heroes and charitable people....

If I may also add I'm glad you're here. Or, as Beeker would say;

   "Meep Meep Meep? Meep Meep Meep Meep"!

Comment by Steph S. on May 19, 2012 at 1:15pm

YAY! Tammy S. so glad you came back to the site. I'm glad you are my friend!

This is a good group here.
