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.

This "security guard" has earned his quotation marks!

(Cropped from the original that's all around the web. Many more similarly funny pictures at "50 Funny Ironic Pictures". And of course, Cheezburger on any random day.)

I loved the hard rock cellos!

On another note: this is
from "44 examples of extreme irony": an opener labeled "STOP STRUGGLING with those stubborn plastic packages!", itself packaged in one of those annoying packages you need to destroy to open.

I thought the cello video was really different and cool! I was impressed! Glad you liked it Patricia!

Joan, I also agree that a lot of TV is nerve shattering.

I think they make most shows for a young audience.  They must think young people like disorienting fast action, with lots of gratuitous noises and flashing images.  Something I question.

In any case, I hate a lot of it.  The educational programming is starting to do the same thing.  I often watch educational shows that I very much want to learn from, but have to stop because of the annoying or frightening noises they add, and the jumping and flashing images that feel like they are going to induce a mental malfunction in me.

Joan, I agree about Napoleon.

Napoleon, I like most of your comments, but can't abide your "chaotic, disorienting, cacophonous, nerve rattling" audio/video presentations.  

A lot of them are also gross and repulsive to me.  I hop on past them quick like a bunny.

Heh!  I have always been rather scornful of what the Disney company did to ice shows in North America.  They didn't advertise the principal skater's names, for one thing.  It was always, "Starring: Snow White," or "Cinderella," or something. That meant that the champion skaters didn't want to tour with them...I mean, who would want to be anonymous after all the work and sweat and pain it takes to get to Nationals and the Olympics?  (I wonder what they were paying their principal skaters.  Union minimum?  That's what Holiday paid first-year line skaters, but we were all so daffy about skating, and so young, we would probably have done it for free.)
