Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 852
Latest Activity: 53 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

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

Patricia, I really enjoy watching all the trains, the scenery and the engineering of the whole system. The Master Engineer poking his head out draws one back to reality of the size of the trains.

Procter & Gamble is making a big to-do over their support of the Pink Ribbon/Breast Cancer cause.  HOWEVER at least 90% of their products contain known carcinogens.

If you want to support the cause, find some way of doing it without buying ANY P&G products.  Ever. 

(I have hated that company since I was a child listening to their stupid commercials on the radio...."Oh, I don't use [bleep] any more.  I use New, Improved [bleep]!"  As IF women are too stupid to know it's still the same old crap, no matter what they call it.)

I wasn't too thrilled when we had to do early morning shortened shows for the company brass when we played Cincinnati, either.  Rudest audiences I've ever skated for. .8 > (

Ian, happy and safe travels and great times with your family. Build up some good memories to hold you over until your next visit.

Have a good trip and visit, Ian!

Comment by Patricia on November 25, 2014 at 2:24pm

Does that mean I have to give up my ''motorbike''????

Have a great trip, Ian.  Enjoy the time with your family.

Not going to Hell but am going to England in the morning to see some of the family. This will be the last visit for a while. Be good and be safe for the next few days.

Well, it looks like I have no choice.  I'm going to have to give up my gangster rapper behavior in order to get to heaven.

"tattoo getters" is funny, as is "girly men", and a few others. :)

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on November 25, 2014 at 11:33am

If the sign bearer's going to be in heaven, I'll take hell any day. (Makes me want to get a tatoo.)
