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.

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

Idaho Spud, that is one jiving revival! Funny! Made me tap my toes.

"I likes my privacy" reminds me of The Mississippi Squirrel Revival by that hilarious comedian Ray Stevens:

Tara: how about this for your profile pic?

Kill the wabbit!

That's a cute pic Tara!

Okay here, though I am procrastinating terribly.  But on a completely unrelated note, I have to admit something:  I think I'm a closet bunny-rabbit hater.  I too frequent the site for funny/uplifting critter postings every day, however, Mondays are always ruined for me because the daily squee page is full of bunnies.  If I forget it's Monday and go there, I cringe, roll my eyes, and blame the ruining of my day on all those bunny-picture posting jerkfaces.  -.-

A little weird, yes.  I prefer the creepy cutes from Tuesday-Sundays that include reptiles, amphibians, and little dudes like this:

Tony I love the space picture with the lovely quote!
Your welcome booklover. I love the Muppets and it's so cool that they cover that Queen song.
How's everyone doing today? It's getting cooler here - I'm so ready for Fall and cooler weather.

@ Steph, I love the movie-theater cat pic, I agree, I need my space!  I also love the Muppets Bohemian Rhapsody!

@ Tony, that is a really neat thing to think about!
