Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 4 minutes 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

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

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

Ruth: Ew!  It reminds be of a member of the ACA group I belonged to years ago telling us about his alcoholic mother serving rabbit for Easter dinner.  She told her (very young at that time) children that they were eating the Easter bunny.

@Idaho: Ew, too.  Heh.  There were some jokes in the very first Muppet Movie about a frog leg restaurant chain...I think they were hunting Kermit because they wanted him to be their spokesman (as if he would!), but he was afaid they just wanted his legs. 

Gad!  That was a LONG time ago!

Gross, but funny!  Reminds me of one that my Mother liked that greatly surprised me because she had never before indicated a liking for that kind of thing.  I can't find it at the moment, but I found one in French (I'm guessing), titled "Today's special - Frog Legs"  Sorry I don't know how to put the picture here, but the site with it on is:

I don't think Scientologist Will Smith is the best choice for the POTUS.
