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.

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

Richard Dawkins, Growing Up in the Universe

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 14. 2 Replies

Here is an oldie, the young Richard Dawkins teaching kids about the universe. I especially like the one demonstrating how the eye evolved. This should answer those who believe it was impossible to evolve an eye. Continue

I love that picture, regular Mindy!

The AN-site is so very slow! I have to wait minutes before a page turns up. Is that the same for you or has my pc turned xtian?

I've seen that happy child before Mindy, but it's a great reminder.

Happy Earth Day.

Hi, Ruth.  Always good to hear from you. 

I saw my first butterfly yesterday while sitting in my parents yard.  A true sign of Spring and good things to come.  It was all white.  I've always liked butterflies and all their different colors.

What a great group! Welcome back regular Mindy/booklover. I enjoyed all of your flowers, meerkat hugs, Dr. Tinycat, and George Takei birthday buddy.

I've been distracted all day, stewing about Climate Change damage to the East Coast Atlantic. Which I shared in Petey the Puffin tells the future. It's a relief to catch up with your lives.

Joan, those are cute little huggers!  In my "Cute" file they go!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on April 21, 2014 at 6:55pm

I'm sure I speak for everybody on here, we like "regular Mindy" just as much. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 21, 2014 at 5:19pm

Had to save Dr tinycat.  So cute & funny.

Comment by sk8eycat on April 21, 2014 at 5:13pm

Mindy, please add me to that group hug!  And here's somebody to make you feel better

DR. TINYCAT
