Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 852
Latest Activity: 9 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.

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

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 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

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

Chris, I absolutely love your cat.  So beautiful.  (The flowers are pretty, too!)

So ... have you had your Cyriak today?  No?  My goodness, we MUST do something about that:




There, now, don't you feel better?

I wish you a carefree year, Melinda! And here are some flowers.

NOW I understand how Moses "spoke" with a burning bush, FA. Also explains how he wandered around the desert for 40 years!

   5) The veil on my eyes are lifted, and verily I say unto thee, my brethren, thou shalt stone the heathen, the adulterers, the thief in the night.

   6) For it is pleasing in the sight and smell of the most high.

   7) And the burning thereof shall rise to the heavens as a sweet gift, pleasing unto the lord of hosts. And thou shalt praise his name on high forevermore as 'Dude'!!!

                                  Chapter 3, vs 5-7

Joan, I'm so glad you're recovering nicely.  It's great to hear "positive" stories from you and others here on Atheist/Nexus regarding cancer.

**sending you a virtual warm and friendly "heal quickly" hug.** 

No, I did not make the "Shake Your Pants" cat video.  I'm not that talented in the computer/video department.  My great talent is stealing material and passing it on.  Kinda like Milton Berle.  

Tony, this is for you........

Please excuse me, my computer is just being plain stubborn. It is slow, won't post, or posts multiple times. I guess a spring cleaning is in order. Sorry. Now, I can't delete the excesses.

Melinda. Wanted to get you something for your birthday, then realized that you have more un-birthdays than birthdays, just like the rest of us. So, for all the rest of your days, may I present the following.
