Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

Latest Activity: 1 hour 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

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

I think I have the job; it all depends on when or whether Sharon's surgery is scheduled. I hate to say this, but I think she needs some serious liposuction or something first, or the new hip joint won't help her much.  Oh, hell...what do I know?

In the meantime, this my wish for all of us RIGHT NOW!

Good afternoon, sk8eycat.  Wonderful video.  I laughed a lot.  Very cute.  Good luck with your interview.

Good Morning.  I have to go interview a dog about a 4-week house-sitting job.  In the meantime, I'll leave you with this (if the link works)

YouTube pulled the account with the cat-and-bell video; I posted what looks like the original in Atheist Ailurophiles: "Well-trained humans".

Aww! Thanks for Happy GrandPawrents Day, sk8eycat.

I’d heard of Ameraican Sweet Gum, but not by the name Liquid Amber. I had no idea they were so troublesome. Catalina Cherry trees sound like a nuisance too near your house.

Booklover, I never realized that we’re lucky to only have trees  growing behind the house and sewer pipes only in the front. Your daughter’s boss and his wife don’t sound like the nicest people to work for. But my experience is most bosses aren’t great to underlings. Power makes people less empathic and more certain that their opinion is right.

Flying Atheist, just yesterday my husband and I were enjoying the way a woman’s ponytail bounced so sprightly as she jogged on a treadmill. ROFL over your cat monopoly ad.

Patricia, Futan is great! Thanks for the link.

I loved this video of a guy massaging a cat.

That cat has such an attitude, pushing the bell! I wonder what else he wants us to do...
