Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 865
Latest Activity: on Sunday

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 Burial Waltz

Hi everyone,It was almost a half-century ago, at age 15 or so, that I encountered one of the more important influences in my life: a crazy group of poets/musicians who called themselves The Fugs.They had a huge impact on me in that, though raised in…Continue

Some William Blake to Ponder

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Donatien Alphonse François Apr 25. 6 Replies

Hello all,I'm new here, and so hope this isn't old hat. But, I just had to point you toward a marvelous poem by William Blake in case you've never read it. Despite his sometimes heavily tinged biblical references in his other art and poetry, this…Continue

God's Not Dead - The Christian Persecution Complex (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Annie Willis Apr 20. 7 Replies

Doubtless most if not all of you have heard about that sorry piece of cinema known as God's Not Dead, and perhaps its sequel, cleverly entitled: God's Not Dead 2 (wow, how original!).  Personally, I have wasted neither time nor money on either,…Continue

The Value of Atheist Nexus ... and of Keeping Contact

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Apr 17. 13 Replies

I don't know about you, but the last 24+ hours were VERY uncomfortable for me.  Why?  Because something I value a LOT, being Atheist Nexus and the people I care about on A|N were temporarily unavailable to me.  No, we're not Facebook; I don't think…Continue

Patricia, no, nothing came through, and no address. Thanks for trying. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 11, 2013 at 6:38pm

This not getting the comment has been happening a lot and I hope for an easy fix. I assume it is my equipment, because I am not getting many different people's images. Let me try a few things here before you take the time to describe it to me. Thanks for the offer to help. 

Let's try one thing first, if you don't mind. Will you please send me the address to the comment and see if it comes through from you? That is, if you time to fool with this with me.

Joan, that's strange, I can see the photo w/caption perfectly. Do you want me to describe it for you?  I don't want to ruin the surprise if you DO manage to get it later.  It's cute, and it fits ME exactly.

XOXOXOX

Mindy, there seems to be a pattern developing here. I am not getting your comments, except for only this: "Comment by booklover 2 hours ago". Nothing more. I have been able to retrieve what you send by going to my inbox, copying the file name and doing a Google search for it. This time, no luck. This is what I copied:

(http://api.ning.com:80/files/4NHhjdQBWB556ixg3uRViGYToMW94CUAx9AhpSDNTsUc7ZEzsFlzjm6J8e5GabiysAmmxrJxd0S3zFFgiNjDFeBA7jlYXflX/1000578_540922485981798_473129607_n.jpg)

_

I tried using just the blue part: http://api.ning.com:80/files 

_

and the whole string. Nothing. The I tried only the black part. 

I found "did not match any documents" for all three tries.

Great cartoon, Loren. That applies to Climate Change denial as well as religion. As I read yesterday, "joyful embrace of willful ignorance".

Napoleon Bonaparte, I object to your video. While sexy female soldiers don't bother me, I find the theme "Kill an Arab" extremely offensive. Does it occur to you that some of The members of Hang With Friends are Arabs? Atheist Nexus has many Arab members. Hate has no place here. Accordingly I am exercising my prerogative as moderator and deleting your comment.

"Define wet". That does have a familiar ring to it. Kind of like something Ray Comfort would state.

Anyone for the absurdity of religion?  Check out the following:

Patricia, love the panda videos! Really cute creatures!
Comment by Joan Denoo on August 10, 2013 at 9:12am
Mindy, the photo of the three cats didn't come through to my comment wall, so I went hunting for it and found a very funny scene! Jealousy seems to be universal.
Comment by Joan Denoo on August 10, 2013 at 9:08am

Loren, Funny! "Because IT WORKS ... bitches!" I like his spunk!
