Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 852
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)

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

Booklover, I totally agree with you about people, I find few who think that liberal around my area. Maybe that is why I never get company lol.

one of the major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them. To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. To summarize the summary; anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job. To summarize the summary of the summary: people are a problem.

I was with my dad's family last night and a shared with them two ideas I had for political policy.  The first is a drastic restructuring of our electoral system where instead of deciding our leaders by popular vote, we put all candidates for a particular office into one room, lock them in, and have them fight to the death.  Everyone applauded this.

My second idea called for a minimum I.Q. requirement for any public office.  To refute this, my cousin Brett, who's the edumucated one in the family, said that 90% of all serial killers are certified geniuses.  Why would anyone campaign AGAINST a law that says "You must be this smart to run for office"?  I know America's falling behind academically, but we're not THAT stupid.

Since I do most of my own cooking from scratch, I am making spaghetti with ground beef and a salad from my garden.

Onion rings. For many years I coudn't eat onions but it seems my body has changed her mind and is allowing me to eat them again. Dude, I nearly cried. I can't even tell you how much I missed onions rings!

Steph, Pumpkin and Jerry say "Fancy Beast - Chicken & Liver!"  Although Jerry-Cat likes to lick any plate that has leftover drips of mayo on it.

As for me, I'm thinking about sending out for a BLT on a croissant.  With extra mayo.
