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

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

Thanks, everyone, for all your caring comments.  I really don't "feel" sick, and my sinuses already seem to be clearing up.  I had a good nights sleep......in bed at 11:15pm and up this morning about 8:30am.   

Love the Star Trek and the imaginary Christ memes.

Happy New Year, one and all.

Get well soon, Carl.

Happy New Year to all my friends here. 

I was supposed to attend a small party tonight but I came home from work exhausted and with nasal drip causing my voice to be horse.  I've been up since 5:45 this morning and flew to Seattle and back today.  I hate disappointing my friends, but I'm just too beat and under the weather to go out.  I was looking forward to a few cocktails tonight, some homemade chili and then a taxi ride home.  Well.......maybe next year.  

We are in the process of getting several inches of snow here right now.

Happy New Year everyone !! I am not doing much myself either. Just staying out of trouble - good thing you don't have to worry about the kids Mindy.

And Happy New Year to you all too! The new year is not yet an hour old, the fireworks are going up, the fumes are rising and the first casualties are in the hospitals and mortuaries - it's really not my idea of a celebration. All the best to you! I'm off to sleep.

I love the item about DNA, Ian. But the real fundies among them would die first than admit it.

I always looked at the Noah's Ark story as a blow-up of a local thing. Bronze Age farmers didn't travel very far - so if your small valley flooded and you escaped with the family, the goats and a few chickens on a raft...
