Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 849
Latest Activity: on Wednesday

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.

'Devil's Graveyards'  One of these is supposed to be the Bermuda Triangle. There was a documentary about this a few years ago and one of the institutions that doesn't believe in it is Lloyds of London. As the major insurer of marine traffic, they're opinion carries a lot of weight. Who's ever heard of an insurance company that missed en excuse to set premiums up?

I've had an interesting evening at the theatre. Attended one of a series called 'Readings.' A writer, a director and a small cast have one day to shape a provisional performance of a work-in-progress. They then explain what they were trying to do with the production and take questions from the audience. It gave me some insight into how drama works. Tonight's piece was 'Betamax versus VHS' and was about how a tightly-buttoned, repressed middle-class family express their frustrations through conflicts about something banal.

I would like to know more about the devils graveyards the vile vortex of earth to me it sounds far fetched but plausible. I would like others to research this topic and present there findings. Atheists are the vanguard of science we alone press humanity away from super natuarl belief toward fact. I would like to know what do my peers think of this. What should we do i am curious.

Yes, Carl, I lived in S. Calif, and I knew immediately there was no such place.

Nice weather up in Wisconsin, along L. Michigan, for the PGA championship (golf). I heard them say only 4 Americans were among the top 16 players. And, of course, no Tiger (missed the cut). We just don't have the work ethic, in my opinion.

I knew it! I knew it!

Something else to investigate.

Once again, Carl, you reveal your detective skills. Maybe a new profession awaits you! 

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 15, 2015 at 1:56pm

Good job Carl.  I was a little suspicious as well, but was too lazy to look into it.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 15, 2015 at 10:59am

Regional differences.  In LA they call them Freeways.  In Chicago we call Expressways.  In LA they call them by their interstate number (ie. the 405).  In Chicago we refer to our expressways by who they were dedicated to and named after.  We have the Kennedy, the Eisenhower, the Dan Ryan, the Edens, the Stevenson.

Photoshopped! Good work spotting it, Carl!
