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.

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris 2 hours ago. 14 Replies

I suppose it was the news that Playboy magazine was returning nudes to its pages after a year's hiatus that sufficiently perked my curiosity to check them out again.  I hadn't looked at Playboy since perhaps 2008, when I began to recognize that I…Continue

Such Lyrics!

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

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 11. 1 Reply

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

   It has been 6 month now since I signed up for Atheist Nexus membership. The past year has been sort of a bi-polar wave of emotions for me. I hope I wasn't offensive to the folks on here and I think I have been but I don't know to who. My desire…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jan 9. 19 Replies

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

Pumpkin thanks you all...he doesn't know he's getting old, and I'm not going to tell him.

I am having a cup of HOT cinnamon tea, and thinking about adding a slice of pumpkin (the vegetable kind!) to celebrate....but there's a bottle of Korbel that my sister bought (quel suprise!!!) cooling in the fridge, and some Brie and crackers, too.

The cold wind has blown itself out after a day and a half, so the gun worshipers will probably be out blasting away at the sky in a couple of hours. 

Oh, and out old CRT TV is dying, slowly, so my sister is going to try to find the Rose Parade online in the morning.  My monitor is a very bright flat screen, so it should look more 3-D-ish.  I hope.  I've already seen a color sketch of the Burbank float, and am embarrassed.  It looks so cartoonish.  Bleah.

I think I'll just cuddle with Mr. Pumpkin and listen to him purr.....

Carl, I don't usually care much for vocal music, BUT I'll always make an exception for Ella.  WHAT a talent!

Mindy, that's hilarious, but ....Eww! 

Goes back to an animated film we were shown in kindergarten to publicize smallpox vaccine.  The "germs" were big spiders that were dropped like bombs from airplanes....it was the middle of WW2, and everything was "military" then. 

My class was too young to really grasp the purpose of the film, and many of us had nightmares about spiders for weeks (sometimes years) afterwards.  I don't know if any parents complained to the school; people didn't do that much back then.

Mindy, thanks to Bertold and Spud, I see your beautiful backdrop. I knew it would be pretty.
