Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 852
Latest Activity: yesterday

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

Ruth, Jesus IS "toast"!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on December 2, 2011 at 12:31pm

Dude, that's sooo funny. And the perfect response to folks who see Jesus in toast.

Jesus in a dog's butt! Bwa-a-a-ah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!

That's a funny picture Natalie!

Hi, All!! I haven't been on in quite a while.  Sorry about that.  I had time, and was reading things in here since my last visit.  Hoping all is well

Comment by Donna Darko on November 26, 2011 at 4:37pm

I LOVE it.  I sent it to my husband and our two grown sons with the caption, "Well I've seen his face, now I'm a believer."

*snerk!*  Oh, go ahead...send it to your Christian friends!

I've seen a cropped version of the dog-butt Jesus before, but this is funnier.  More obvious that it is a dog. I think I'll add it to my "Butt-Scootin' Hound" song.  Perfect!)

(To the melody of "The Old Rugged Cross"  ick.)

On the living-room rug scoots my beautiful dog,
A victim of itching and pain.
Yet, I love my big hound,
He’s the best pal I have,
So it’s back to the vet once again.


Yes, I cherish my butt-scootin’ dog.
We’ve been buddies since he was a pup.
But the brown streak he left on the floor
Isn’t something that’s fun to clean up.

O, that butt-scootin’ dog couldn’t help what he did;
His glands are impacted, I guess.
I hope it’s not worms;
I’ll find out from the vet
Before the whole house is a mess.

Yes, I cherish my butt-scootin’ dog.
We’ve been buddies since he was a pup.
But the brown streak he left on the floor
Isn’t something that’s fun to clean up.

Yuck! My butt-scootin’ dog stained the carpet today;
NOT wondrous beauty to me!
But I know it’s my fault;
Should have seen doc last week,
I just had no cash for the fee.

Yes, I cherish my butt-scootin’ dog.
We’ve been buddies since he was a pup.
But the brown streak he left on the floor
Isn’t something that’s fun to clean up.

I’m committed to care for my butt-scootin’ hound.
I dread the reproach in his eye.
He must know I love him,
Even when things are grim.
Wish he’d take his teeth out of my thigh!

He’s a winner, my butt-scootin’ hound.
I can’t blame him for scratching an itch.
His blue ribbons and trophies all prove
He’s a pedigreed son of a bitch.

OMG! I laughed out loud...and I copied it. That is truly choice.

Comment by Natalie A Sera on November 25, 2011 at 11:36pm

OK, I just can't resist. Jesus in a dog's butt, from Brazil. Pareidolia personified. I won't send this to my Christian friends, LOL!

Windows7 here. I'm usually OK...but... I do have occasional trippy little "gremilns". I think that happens when other members (or maybe just administrators) are actively editing the page I'm working on. The comments windows don't have any "Pause" buttons to limit that interference.
