Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 850
Latest Activity: yesterday

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

something to ease the waiting?

Comment by The Flying Atheist on February 2, 2015 at 12:13pm

We got blasted with snow here in Chicago.  The final tally is 19 inches (48 cm).  Schools are closed and lots of people staying home from work today.  I was scheduled for a doctor appointment at 9:45 this morning but I had to cancel.  My sister was going to pick me up and drive me there but many of the streets are still not drivable.  In my condition, I don't have the strength to navigate on foot through all this snow and take two buses and a train to get there.  I get out of breath just walking around my apartment.

I'm expecting a decision this week from the kidney transplant team concerning my surgery.  I have a feeling that they will want me to have heart surgery first before having a kidney transplant.  Ugh......the waiting.

Better stay indoors! Your snowstorm is even in our news.

Comment by Idaho Spud on February 2, 2015 at 9:54am

I didn't know what TMI meant either, and will probably forget again.  I've started trying to remember to write-out most chatinese instead of using the abbreviations because I often don't know what people are talking about and don't want people wondering what I'm talking about.

I'm sure they often do anyway, because I'm not a good writer.  By the way, I didn't know what chatinese meant until you peeps started using it and I got the definition by the context.

I stopped taking all of the drugs my urologist gave me because my symptoms were worse while taking drugs, even though my PSA readings were lowered dramatically.  

For that reason, I was interested in the talk about saw palmetto.  I looked it up on Wikipedia and they said study results are mixed, but most show that it's no better than a placebo.

Comment by Randall Smith on February 2, 2015 at 8:31am

I just thought TMI was like LOL and OMG. As little "chatinese" as I know and speak, I DO know those!

"Candlemas Day, Candlemas Day! Half the wood and half the hay." Maud Silverthorn, 1890-1974 (my grandmother).                  Yes, today, Feb. 2 is not only Groundhog Day, but Candlemas Day. Really.  And if my grandmother's poem is true, I'm in trouble, because I have less than half my wood left to last me the winter through!

No, Randy had the TMI in his comment, & I don't speak chatinese.

Comment by k.h. ky on February 1, 2015 at 4:24pm
. Mindy, that's one of my favorites.

Patricia, TMI is to much information. I didn't know if you were asking that or asking Spud if you were giving him TMI.
Comment by Patricia on February 1, 2015 at 2:12pm

Rick still gets up at night but it is less of a struggle to pee. He was told to take the timed release 1000 m.g. saw palmetto because anything less is not that great. He actually began with a half tablet & was ok with that for quite sometime, & then only recently went to a whole tablet.

TMI???????????

Excellent fact picture Mindy.
