Hang With Friends

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

Guess I prefer different music than you do, Napoleon. I found Iggy Pop new values lyrics too Dominator for my taste.

Tea and telly sounds cozy for a cold Denmark evening, Ian.

I used to enjoy veggie burgers, Chris. Then Is read that they were processed in a way to possibly have neurotoxic hexane residue. Now I'm afraid to eat them.

My brain is on holiday this evening. Bye all.

Thanks, TFA. It's a cold evening in Denmark so tea and telly is on the agenda. Hope the beans and burger taste good Chris.

Have a really nice whatever-the-time-is all.

Well timed, Flying Atheist, I'm cooking the evening meal (beans and veggieburger). Thanks and have a nice day to all of you!

Good Day and Happy Monday to you all.  I've been working like a dog (sorry, not like a cat) and finally have a nice stretch of days off.  

Melinda, have a GREAT trip to The Keys.  There are some wonderful sunsets there.  I know you'll have a very nice and relaxing time with your family.  You all sound like so much fun when you get together.  (How's that for good English?)  

Nice to see you back Felaine.  You're missed tremendously when you're away on your little jaunts.  What a time to be away!  So much happening in the news.  BTW, this past weekend I was just in your neck of the woods.  The hotel I was staying at by LAX was hosting a Doctor Who convention.  Major geeks, nerds and costumes all over the hotel.  What fun!  I'm not a Doctor Who fan, but I somehow felt that I fit in with that crowd.  LOL

Joan, thanks for the posting the NASA photo.  I'm continually amazed at how beautiful and awe-inspiring the depths of space can be.  It's such a paradox.....so beautiful, yet so hostile.

I wish all of you a great day.  And to all our European and international friends.....a great evening.

I really missed you all...there was so much going on in the gnus, and I needed many kindred "spirits" to discuss it all with!  ("with whom to discuss it all"?)

Anybody else planning to watch "Hubris" on MSNBC Monday evening?  It's on at 9PM ET, 6PM PST....Check their web site for your time zone.

Ian!  I absodamnlutely LOVE ragtime!  Actually, I love watching a good pianist's hands playing any style music....very secksy!  (I just sent that link to a friend, who is an amazing pianist, as a belated Valentine.) Heh!

Fangkew.

Speaking of cats on keyboards, yes, it's a trend, which I'll gladly add to. Here's an intent mewsician...

Good night, everyone!

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 17, 2013 at 11:57pm

Steph, cat on keyboard looks as I feel. Cat for pope; he could not do any worse. 

Grinning Cat, cat on a keyboard; am I seeing a trend here? Ah Ha! I was right, there is a trend of cats on keyboards. 

Tony Carroll, "Truth" sign is what we need right now! and a lion with courage. Oh! How we need courageous leaders. 

sk8eycat, welcome back; looking forward to some good conversations. 

Well, dear friends, that's all for today. Nice to end the day with your fun and funny contributions.
