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.

I like the sound of Steven Weinberg's voice. He has a calming impact on me as I rush to get my home of 41 years ready to sell and plan and put into motion the new garden at my daughter's home. My home is full o empty boxed quickly filling with the…Continue

got away with what you said? Did your father expect the tar and feathers treatment?

The other day, me, my wife and our parents went out to eat at a new restaurant. The conversation turned to politics and religion. My mother said that I shouldn't hate Christians. I said that I had no problem with Christians BUT their silly notions of a god and jesus, I detest!! I didn't realize that I had been a little too loud and everyone in the restaurant stopped eating and looked at me!! Quick to recover, I said, Why am I getting so upset when god and jesus do not exist!!! Everyone went back to eating AND no one contradicted what I said!!!!! When we were back on the road, my father turned to me and said, "I can't believe you got away with what you said, Impressive"!!!

That guy is "preacher" Robert Tilton.  His Wikipedia entry even has a whole paragraph about how the "Farting Preacher" videos got started.

I just love when people like him (a major con artist) are disgraced publicly.

Yes, Mindy, those sounds were added.  Pardon my crude humor, but I just laugh hysterically at that video.

They're waiting for the last trump. I've read that Taoist munks don't eat vegetables and beans. They believe that each person has an allotted amount of air in a lifetime and that farting therefore shortens the span.

Here's an oldie but goodie. Many of you may have seen this before but the spirit moved me to post this.

Comment by Ian Mason on July 16, 2013 at 2:00pm

Such confusion! It's called an apostrophe and shows, among other things, possession: as in Depp's.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on July 16, 2013 at 12:31pm

You are making me LOL, Mindy.  lol

Comment by Ian Mason on July 16, 2013 at 10:32am

Great groaners.

Been to see the "Lone Ranger" film. Read afterwards that it got hammered by the critics but I thought it was a pleasant couple of hours' light entertainment. One sharp comment in it: "What are you going to buy with all this silver?" "A country".

Watch out, Mindy.
