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.

Think Goodwill Industries does well by the poor?  Fact is, they do WAY BETTER for themselves, to the point where America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, thinks they're ripping off the christian playbook a bit too well!  Have a look for yourself:…Continue

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

The Apple factory in China has an unusually high suicide rate among workers, a fact that's even become a news item in Europe, if not the U.S.

For the next few days you can do this: go to: bbc.co.uk/radio, then to radio4extra, then The Museum Of Curiosity. God gets put in a glass case.

When I was in China during 2006 the average wage was 600 to 800 kwai per month. About 100 to 130 dollars a month. About 40 to 50 cents per hour. That was in Southern China. Today it is about double that, maybe a little less than double. I talked to quiet a few people in China, and got into a little trouble for it. The reason is that many girls subsidize their wages through prostitution, in order to buy pretty clothes and mobile phones, computers etc But the same thing happens here in the West, I guess it is the same everywhere.

I thought the Woz was the real genious - maybe not with business, but he's a great inventor.

Why? It's sad for Jobs's family and friends but the Apple Corp will carry on (exploiting workers in China).

At the moment, i am obsessed with an idea: "Meaning (and even life) is light stored (in our brains) in the form of pictures". People are led by what they see - that explains 'society produces common destiny'. For minority of us knowledge relaxes, and logic and reason are methods to knowledge. But for the majority, it is irrational methods to relaxation. And seeing is believing + truth by following majority.
