Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

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

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

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)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

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

What's a ''living'' room for?????? if not to ''live'' in????? I used to babysit for people like that who would never let their kids in the living room & I said right then, I'd never treat a living room as if it wasn't part of the house. Only our bedroom was private & not for the kids.

That's pretty exciting, Melinda.

Comment by Patricia on November 21, 2014 at 1:12pm

That's what I don't understand, Spud.....why are the vast amounts of evidence tossed aside for a damn ignorant, old, translated a million times book????? I never ''agree'' to disagree. It just seems silly to me.

And now with the Joseph Smith bombshell.......GEESH!!!!!!

One of my cats treats all carpet as scratching post. We have tons of scratching posts and pads, but carpet is convenient. Fiber balls shredded from the wool carpet in our living room end up all over.

I looked up Corian and here is what I found! Oh my gosh! Another bit of evidence that science outperforms prayer. 

Corian images

Looking forward to photos, Mindy, and I know you are going to enjoy your new look.

They're just teaching you not to have carpet, Mindy! I learnt part of the lesson; I haven't got carpet or wallpaper - but I still have duvets, so they throw up on the duvet cover. Perhaps I shouldn't have those?

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on November 21, 2014 at 9:00am

But of course! Why would a cat ever throw up on a surface that's easy to clean?

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on November 21, 2014 at 8:42am

Sounds like a great face lift for your kitchen, Mindy. I had a good friend who was a Corian installer - you're going to love it. Tile floors are nice too. Carpet is evil, especially if you have animals!

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on November 21, 2014 at 7:54am

Mindy - how fun! What kind of countertops are you installing?

Comment by Randall Smith on November 21, 2014 at 7:35am

Carl, sorry about the rescheduling. Also, "praying for you". That boils my blood. Except for my stupid ex-wife, my family (kids and 2 sisters) are pretty respectful of my nonbelief. No meal prayers, for example (at least not outloud).

Felaine, your insights, wisdom, and wit are awesome!
