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.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

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

So behind on the posts here. But never fear - I'm getting caught up right now. I will make sure to look at everything.

Ruth, years ago I practically lived on the Cheezburger web site, but they've made so many changes in the past 6 months or so that I hardly recognize the place, can't find anything, and I flat "DO NOT WANT!"  I particularly dislike all the FlakeBook connections that they've added.

It just doesn't feel like "home" anymore.  So I don't go there, unless someone tells me to.  My sister still spends a lot of time there...she specializes in Trek LOLz...

Live long and prosper!

Thanks for the great quotes Tony and Loren! And for the chuckle, Chris!

I'm upset because Cheezburger had a front page picture of a man smashing a woman's face, like it was something to cheer for. I always went there for cute cats, not to be virtually assaulted.

Is the cat with the really big bite yours, booklover?

Have a peaceful night, all.

That's true Lillie! 

@sk8eycat, that is a scary situation to be in.  We are in tornado country here, but there is also a fault-line, but I don't think it would do too much damage in my city.

@booklover and Lille: I live in Southern California...I think most of my (English-speaking) neighbors would get the joke.  We know from experience that you can't "stop" it, but wish we could.  We're ALL sort of quietly biting our nails knowing "The Big One" is 25 - 50 years overdue.  1994 was bad enough.

Or they wouldn't know you couldn't stop it.  (plate tectonics, that is)

Comment by booklover on October 2, 2012 at 1:31pm

Love your thought for the day sk8eycat.  I'll bet if you put that on a shirt, 3/4 of the people you ran into wouldn't even know what it meant.

Thought for the day....  (I recently bought a book about Anne McCaffrey, one of my favorite wriers, and there was one photograph of her wearing a sweatshirt with the following)

STOP
PLATE
TECTONICS
