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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

If interested, I submitted a book recommendation and my colonoscopy results in "Nexus Book Club" and "learnerscoffeeshop" groups respectfully. No need to repeat myself.

My list of hated comedians (Adam Shandler) and shows (i.e., All in the Family) is endless. Don't even want to think about it.

Neil Carter, 

What Atheists Wish Christians Knew About Them

Grinning Cat, thank you again. I worked on the same problem a year ago; now I realize I have been doing it incorrectly for a year. I'll work to catch my errors quicker in the future.

Sk8ey - I actually liked Carrey in Liar Liar. And you're so right about Lucille - by a strange coincidence I just saw a trailer for her Mame last week and she was waaaaaaaaaay too long in tooth and claw for that role.

Ian - Groucho was absolutely the pinnacle of comedy. My favorite line ever was I never forget a face, but in your case I'll make an exception. He was just subtle enough to sleaze many a ribald line past the ever-vigilant censors. Reginald Perrin was priceless as well.

I don't think I've ever seen anything Jim Carrey has ever done.  The last movie (DVD) I have seen was the second "Harry Potter" film.  *YAWN*  (And too much yelling n the beginning.)

Always been a Marx brothers fan, me. The right combination of verbal and visual wit. I grew up with more radio than telly so the verbal has been the most important. For instance, I love Blackadder but don't really care much for Mr. Bean.

Jerry Lewis was good in "My Friend Irma."  Period.  At least I thought so at the time.   I was 9 years old.....

Joan, thanks for sharing that clip!

There's a discussion in "How To Do It!" about embedding videos, with instructions on specifying start and stop times if you want to highlight just one section.
