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.

And I thought America was all about personal freedom - or is that only for men?

@ Ian Mason No it was because the size of the screens were 2000 + lines and huge and therefore sensitive to the earths magnetic field.

Comment by Ian Mason on February 14, 2012 at 7:32am

Very pretty Steph.Like it.

Comment by Ian Mason on February 14, 2012 at 7:31am

Wasn't that because Oz used the same system as Europe with 625 lines while the Americas still used the older 475-line type?

@The big blue frog, Larger Cathode Ray Tube type televisions do. My old company in australia had to setup different screens for clients in the northern hemisphere (Late 1990s).

TV's don't rely on the Earth's magnetic field. Otherwise, taking a TV from the US to Australia would render it inoperative. A shift or reversal in the Earth's field would play heck with compasses, but would not affect most ordinary electronics, except for the extra charged particles flooding the lower atmosphere.

An optical illusion

Comment by Meddlesome on February 13, 2012 at 10:58am

Oh yeah, it just occured to me that the big push from retailers a few years ago to get us all to buy flat screen tvs and move away from CRT type tvs was due to the magnetic field possibly flipping and rendering all tvs useless as they depend on magnetic fields to project an image correctly.
