Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 852
Latest Activity: 5 hours 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)

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

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 can't find Learners Coffee Shack, Randall. Can you help? You talked about other groups before and I couldn't find them either.

And I wear a wristwatch, outside the house. I really need it when teaching. I've got a cellphone, but I hardly ever use it - I don't feel comfortable with the radiation. I know it's not much radiation, but I became really careful from the day my friend got breast cancer from a beeper she pinned on her clothes.

Randy, I think you're right about wristwatches.  Myself, I never wore one because my skin hated it.  I carried a small digital watch without the straps in my pocket until I got a cellphone.

I noticed it was friday the 13, and I say big frigggin deal!

Comment by Randall Smith on February 13, 2015 at 7:43am

For those of you that remain in this group, I'm changing the subject. 

First, not only is today Friday the 13th, but  we'll have another in March! Talk about a double whammy, that is, for those that are superstitious.

Second, does anybody wear wristwatches anymore? I seldom see them. I guess people use their phones, etc. Glad I don't have stock in Timex, etc.

One more thing: Learners Coffee Shack group is open for business. I'm usually a one person member. No disagreements there!

This nastiness has no place here. Agree to disagree and leave it at that. This is, after all, an online forum and no-one gets hurt. To quote Jefferson on belief: "it neither breaks my leg or robs my purse". Cool heads, please.

Wrong time of the month, Mindy?

She was going after me, Felaine, but I chose to remove my comments because I am a crab, a bully, & not a nice person. I won't compete with Mrs. Perfect.

HAPPY DARWIN'S DAY

From the slime of the sea to the stars, we have consciousness of this very small part of time.

The kid is just pretending to crank up the dog's tail. The dog isn't being harmed.
