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)

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

Carl, that was so funny. I couldn't stop laughing!

Joan, that Rowan Atkinson video is so hilarious.

Felaine, good for those beautiful "Los Estados Unidos de Mexico"

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 9, 2014 at 1:20pm

Ian, I love that man, Rowan Atkinson! He can make me laugh!

I love Mr. Bean.  I still remember the very first time I ever saw him on television.  It was the skit where he's late for his dentist appointment, so he's brushing his teeth and getting dressed while in the car.  I was hooked after that.

Carl, the video is a wonderful way to start a day! Great choreography. So vibrant, as are the colors.

Isn't it interesting the pro/con America is gender specific. The women like the products of America, the men disliked the racism, violence and costs in America.

'Let me entertain you; let me make you smile..."

That's all I ever wanted out of life....and money, of course.

While I agree with you, Joan, about us being the US, I sometimes find myself defaulting to the standard usage without thinking.

I loved the Steam Bath video, sk8eycat! Greatest Show on Legs was also a hoot, Patricia. Thanks!

Carl, Bernstein/Sondberg said it better than anyone in that song.

As it's Sunday here's a profound thought for the day:
