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

I wish I could be going to the Reason Rally, but I, too, don't have the money to make it.  Happy that a lot of others will be there.  Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

I thought hard about going to the Reason Rally, but it may be just as well I don't.  For openers, that's money spent that could go elsewhere (still unemployed), and as it turns out, I'm available to take care of my best friend's cat while he's away over that weekend.

Still, I look forward to a LOT of stories of what goes on here and beau coup YouTube videos of the event as well.

Thanks for the tip..srsly.  I've been looking for a Search Box, in the "usual" places (upper right) and....nada.  My vision is failing, and it's very frustrating when webmasters get too "creative."  Of course they want people to look at the ads!

I see it now.

"There's a discussion in here somewhere about the Westboro Baptwits planniing to (try to) disrupt the Reason Rally this weekend"

This Blog is probably as closest to the source as you're going to get on this site.

"Does anybody know where I can find that discussion?  Which group?"

There are a few, as well as a couple of AN blogs on the go...

HALP!  There's a discussion in here somewhere about the Westboro Baptwits planniing to (try to) disrupt the Reason Rally this weekend, and I had something I wanted to say on the subject, BUT now I can't find it.  I've been cat-sitting at a computerless house, and when I got home, there were no more emails from that discussion in my In-box.

Does anybody know where I can find that discussion?  Which group?

Not that what I had to say is terribly profound, but it's been on what I use for a mind, and it's driving me crazy...

I have some friends (3 cousins!) who seem to check NASA, Hubble, and other astronomical sites almost daily, and they send me the links to the super-cool stuff.

Makes me wish my dad was still alive...he was an astronomy fan, too.  He'd be glued to the screen 24/7.  (He used to take me to the Griffith Observatory at least once a year.)
