Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 851
Latest Activity: 2 hours ago

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.

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

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

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Feb 15. 4 Replies

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

Oh, good pics and gifs everybody!

I am SO excited that I just have to share this with you all: Lori Golden, the Publisher, Editor, Chief Copy Writer, lay-out and paste-up person for The Pet Press is treating me to a special performance by Elayne Boosler doing an original reading along with a symphony orchestra!!! Here's a long article about it:

http://www.pasadenaweekly.com/cms/story/detail/laughter_for_life/12...

And this is the short blurb I put together for the Calendar in the most recent issue:

Oct. 6 – World Premiere “Rescue- A True Story” ~ 4PM

First Baptist Church of Glendale, 209 N. Louise St., Glendale 91206

Story & Narration by Elayne Boosler with the Glendale Philharmonic Orchestra.

“I feel nothing lends itself to music better than the top notes of comedy, tempered by the depth of emotion we, and the animals, experience every day in the world of rescue. “ Elayne Boosler. Tickets and info call: 323-663-3601 or 818-243-2539  Visit www.tailsofjoy.net/ or www.glendalephilharmonic.com

I FREAKING CAN'T WAIT!  I don't even care that it's at a Bapnit Crutch; the acoustics are supposed to be so amazing that the Orchestra has made the place its home.  As long as nobody prays, I'll be fine. *=D> applause

Patricia, that's a classic song.  I have it programmed into one of my Pandora radio stations.  Playful, sophisticated and sexy.  Great cocktail music.

Or "Old age ain't for sissies."

But I AM a sissy, so how the *bleep!* did I get here?
