Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

Latest Activity: 4 minutes 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 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

I love the ray of death.  What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

"I don't under stand evolution!" Why is it any more difficult to believe that some sky spirit created Earth and all that inhabits it in six day and took the seventh off? Or believe dinosaurs and homo sapiens co-existed? Or believe the Earth is 6,000 years old +- whatever? Or believe that man was created to obey "god" and how do you define god? Or believe that Noah's flood created the Grand Canyon, or that some poor bloke lived inside the belly of a whale, or stones talk, or a man named Jesus is the son of god, born of a virgin, was crucified, died, was resurrected and ascended into heaven? or god punishes all who do not obey him and sends them to eternal damnation in a lake of fire and rewards those sheep who follow him with eternal life with relative who make no sense, or that one must be "born-again" to satisfy some unseeable being, or that there is no moral or ethical code without religion. 

You folks just make no sense to me and I am not interested in your people knocking on my door and calling me. I have very low regard for those who manipulate and exploit others using fear as a weapon instead of thinking reasonably. And above all else, keep your damnable beliefs out of science school rooms. Your message is just plain child abuse.

OK, Tony, I'm stealing the evolution posting and sharing it on FB. I've got FB friends in complete denial about evolution. In fact, I think I've 'lost' a couple of 'friends' because I post pro-evolution statements. Thanks for a funny look at the issue.


And didn't I see that woman at the Republican convention??

Love the ray of death photo! But I kinda wish I could be lying there as another 'victim.'

Comment by Tony Carroll on September 6, 2012 at 10:21am

Even though this made me laugh, it pretty much hit the bullseye.

Good morning, all. Day Lily/Fortnight Lily, aka, African Iris.

Hadn't seen that before, Patricia. It's very funny. Stealing.

Comment by Steph S. on September 5, 2012 at 10:41pm
Cool! Thank so very much!
I love the picture - it is funny!
I appreciate it!
Pleasant dreams everyone!

Hey Steph. This one made me laugh and think of you.

Comment by Steph S. on September 5, 2012 at 10:19pm

Booklover, Patricia and Tony - those are great animal pictures.

Have a good night.
