Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 850
Latest Activity: 4 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

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

That's the first decent laugh I've had in a while! [cut-paste-email!]

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on December 16, 2011 at 12:58pm

Thanks, Steve! That's funny.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on December 16, 2011 at 12:57pm

Oh wow! Thanks for letting us know, Chris. Do you think we should send an email condolence? Anybody know a suitable address?

Hey Steve that Ditto picture is really funny! Thanks!

Comment by sk8eycat on December 12, 2011 at 7:54am

I saw that one the other day, and LOL'd.  Then I thought, "I hope the owners of the house on the right aren't mistaken for Dittoheads...or maybe they are.  Naaaahhh.  I don't think D-heads understand sly humor.

Sounds yummy Natalie!

I don't do Christmas decorations or any other holiday decoration -- just keeping my house clean and livable is about as much as I can do with my life! I AM going to have a couple of former students over on the 27th, and I'm going to make latkes for them. Seems to me that food is ALWAYS appropriate to celebrate! :-)

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on December 11, 2011 at 5:25pm

I enjoy colorful light decorations, but always feel bad about their carbon footprint. It's almost as if the fancy displays also say "Piss on the future"  half-seen, just outside of my peripheral vision.
