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)

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

Jelly Fish

When we lived in Washington, D.C. in 1968, we often went to the ocean where we saw all kinds of things we had never seen before, or touched. Jelly fish were one such species. We picked them off the beach and threw them to each other, sometimes with painful consequence. We also on what seemed free-of-jelly-fish, and get stung on our feet. These interesting and exciting adventures as we long ago moved from those shore.

Perhaps the pc just decided to behave!

I vote for the ninja cats, Booklover, they are wonderful! So many expressions on those black faces! Here's one of Dido at that age.

Trying again. I don't use Chrome, but IE. In the last few days the pc got stuck after 20 seconds on AN, or else when I tried to scroll.. I've almost typed a message without getting stuck! And I still haven't got the foggiest idea what caused the problem. Try Add Comment:

Chris, I have a problem with using the Chrome browser.  I can post a reply (as I am now), but cannot reply to another member's post within threads.  I am able to reply to those while using IE, but I really hate IE.  I hope someone else who has more tech knowledge may be able to offer another answer.

Comment by Plinius on October 13, 2012 at 11:49pm

Good morning! My pc gets stuck every time I visit AN - some reli influence perhaps? It's almost impossible to put up a message; are there more people with the same problem here? And how can I fix it?
