Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 29 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.

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

Napoleon Bonaparte.  The Evolution of God is great! Thanks for the Dog shows Humanity video too. I could have done without the cigarette ad, though. I think there are many anecdotes of dogs showing “humanity”, empathy and concern.

Joan, your Ramallah concert link gave me an ad.

Good point about how sports can lead to working together, Ian.

Cute LOLcat, Steph. That’s just what we do, live around our cats. Though I do “explain” that the recliner is mine from time to time.

Good luck with finals Megan and Steph.

Patricia, thanks for the astronaut video.

I had a strange day. During breakfast my glasses fell apart. That upset our routine. Got it repaired a couple of hours later. It felt peculiar  to miss reading the news, like walking around with a little hole in my brain all day. At least I could tell it was a lovely sunny day despite the blurring.

Napoleon, thanks for the link to the review of de Waal's The Bonobo and the Atheist.

I fear its final point, that the idea of humankind being in any way special or separate from the rest of the animal kingdom is surely dead, won't penetrate the ideology that xians use to protect their ignorance.

I love the cat and dog pictures, that is heart warming.

It's final exams for me too Steph, I feel the pain T.T

Best of rational thinking to you!

Thank you very much Ian. : )

Hope all is going well with the finals, Steph.

Oh I just read back and I love shironeko cat Ruth!

Napoloeon thanks for the animal videos.

It's final exam time - so I got behind on site.

I hope to get caught up when I get the time.

Ruth, Shironeko cat does look to be in a peaceful place.  Perhaps Shironeko can help me chill.
