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.

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

Yeah sk8eycat Amazon charges sales tax now. Those states want their money. Love the picture of Georgie the cat. Playing in the dryer I see.

Hope you had a good day at work Tony. See ya soon!

Hey guys, just back from work. Hope everyone had a great day. The above pic is from my friend Kari. She has a blind sphinx she adopted. His name is Georgie. She said I could share him with ya'll. He is very sweet, likes everyone he meets. Will come up to you, feel around to find your legs, and if you are sitting, he will jump into your lap. He will NOT be ignored, lol! First sphinx I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. He's great.

Melinda and Steph, am reposting your pics. Love 'em. Thanks.

FA, love the shuttle pics. Definitely taking them ( Nerdy McNerd Nerd here, love that kind of stuff. I envy that you get to see it up close, my friend).

Signing off for now, temporarily. Peace my friends.

Flying Atheist, it would have been nice if they'd flown Endeavour over that hill behind the sign, then we might have been able to get a glimpse of it!  Damn-damn-damn!  (Actually, I would have liked to have seen a shuttle lift-off with my own eyes just once.  A friend was working in Orlando during the early years of the STS...or whatever...program, and got to see 2 lift-offs.  He said it was heart-stoppingly indescribable.  You could feel it in your bones, even from 5 miles away.)

Steph, do I hafta pay sales tax on that kitteh now?  (I don't think adoption fees are taxable....yet.  But Jerry Brown is trying to make up for the financial mess that Swarzengroper created.  The jerk who said he was so rich that CA would never go bankrupt!  Testosterone poisoning.)

I don't know about other states, but Californians didn't have to pay sales tax for Amazon mdse until a week or two ago.  (I just ordered some used books from Half.com...no tax.  Heh-heh-heh!)

Love the puppies Joan!

Booklover that cat is messing up that mattress - lol.

Very nice shuttle photo sk8eycat.

Checking the link out sk8eycat -and good luck with your Pet Press. I love animals.

Sounds like some good photos Flying Atheist. Very cool.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on September 26, 2012 at 4:30pm

I just flew with a pilot at my company who showed pictures to me that he took from the cockpit when he was flying into LAX on the same day of the shuttle landing.  They were lucky enough on their approach to be landing at the same time on parallel runways.  And what a treat for a plane full of passengers as well.  Wish I could have seen that.

Hi!  I'm up to my eyes in Pet Press work today and tomorrow, but I HAD to show you-all this photo.  (Please click the link to read the article and following comments.  SOME people actually know something about photography and telephoto lenses!  Amazing!)

Shuttle Endeavour passes the Hollywood sign.

Hi, Stlcharliebrown.  Welcome to the site.  I'm not sure about t/a.  Can you provide the context in which it was used?

Comment by Stlcharliebrown on September 26, 2012 at 2:01pm
I'm new here and I have a question. Someone was talking in a post and used the abbreviation a/n for athiest nexus, they also used the abbreviation t/a. What does it mean it was in reference to another site.
Comment by Stlcharliebrown on September 26, 2012 at 8:37am
Good morning Tony Carroll, John Denver is always a goo way to start out a rainy day. John Denver was the first concert I ever went to at age 8. It was too loud and we had to leave. LOL
