Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 852
Latest Activity: 8 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

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Feb 15. 4 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

Seth Andrews' Rebuttal to "10 Women Christian Men Shouldn't Marry" (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Feb 6. 20 Replies

It seems as though some numb-nuts New York pastor by the name of Stephen Kim has written two marriage advice pieces for christian men and women.  Not surprisingly, his suggestions come straight out of his never-fail magic book.  Seth Andrews of The…Continue

Seth Andrews' New Book, "Sacred Cows" (The Thinking Atheist)

For the last few podcasts, Seth Andrews has been alluding to a new literary effort he's been working on.  Well, the cat is out of the bag ... or perhaps I should say, the cow is out of the barn!  Seth's new opus is entitled: Sacred Cows: a…Continue

Living in the Answers

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

Grinning Cat, chocolate is poisonous to dogs, too.  This didn't happen on my watch, but I used to pet-sit with a Weimaraner, and one Halloween her owners were in such a hurry to get to a party at their country club that they just put the tray of leftover Milky Way trick-or-treat bars on the kitchen counter.  Of course Tina ate ALL of them, and they had to take her to the (expensive) Emergency Vet.  DUMB!

booklover, cat tasting horse delights me.
Steph, the beautiful whooping cranes in their natural environment looks so peaceful, and your hiding cat knows he/she can bathe without all the bubbles and water.
These photos delight me.

Ian Mason, love the cow-scratcher! Hope they have free access to it.

The Flying Atheist, Your cat-sausage, or whatever, is priceless!. Looks like cats and observer enjoy the scene.

Sausage cat is another candidate for the cute folder, and the "tasting me" horse for the humor.

Comment by Grinning Cat on February 22, 2013 at 2:38pm

Chocolate is a food group!! (Even though it's poisonous to actual cats.)

Ian, the only thing that can make milk taste "better" is booze...or chocolate syrup.

Send pictures of the Whoopers, Steph.  So jealous.

Comment by Lillie on February 22, 2013 at 1:16pm

They are also giving cows water beds.

Now that is a cat setup.  Sausage cat.  Clever.
