Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

Latest Activity: 12 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.

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo on Tuesday. 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

TheraminTrees doesn't release videos very often these days,  but when he does, they are positive GEMS.  Most recent of his works is the following, wherein he dismantles some of the common rebuttals atheist get from believers when we assert our…Continue

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

I think it's the theobromide...it's a heart stimulant, I think.

Chocolate is poisonous to gerbils and hamsters, as well.   Why is that?

Comment by sk8eycat on February 22, 2013 at 6:36pm

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.
Comment by Idaho Spud on February 22, 2013 at 2:40pm

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.)

Comment by sk8eycat on February 22, 2013 at 1:59pm

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