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

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

Grossest and most puke inducing slapstick of all - Jerry Lewis.

Comment by sk8eycat on January 20, 2015 at 9:22pm

Lucille Ball was a talented woman, and I hated seeing her play an idiot.  I also never understood WHY "Ricky" loved her.

THEN Hollywood made one of the biggest mistakes ever....they starred her in "Mame" when she was visibly too old to play Beauregard's mother.   Gaaaahhh!

I hated the yelling & Jackie Gleason had a strong resemblance to dear ol' dad.

I never thought Lucy & her waaaaahhhhhhh comedy were funny. Carol Burnett was my favorite!

I want to share the first 27:47 minutes of this video. How do I do that?

I hated "I Love Lucy" and "The Honeymooners" because of all the yelling.  And the subdued slapstick.

Slapstick seems to be a man thing. In most cases.

I don't buy the real jezzuz person either, & I couldn't stand the stooges!!!! And.....what was wrong with the name Cassius Clay anyway?

Comment by sk8eycat on January 20, 2015 at 9:16am

I still think Jesus never existed....except as a Latino baseball player.  And Larry was one of the three stooges.  A "comedy" team I never could wrap my head around.  I thought their  slapstick routines were disgusting.

"Mohammed" was a beautiful young man who is now dreadfully brain-damaged by the non-sport of boxing.

That would be cozy! I'd love to meet you here!

Yes I read it too. We still have our own little bible belt, but it's more a last resistance - a struggle about blasphemy laws, the right to ring church bells or about Sunday shopping.

Also interesting was was the outcome of research into the idea that people in the country are more neighborly than people in urban areas. Research showed it was the other way around. I'm glad of it because most people live in urban areas.
