Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

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

There's no getting around it, Atheist Pig is fast becoming my fave secular comic, and as evidence, I refer you to the following.  Jesus and Mo had better watch their respective asses, 'cuz they got a porker coming up on the outside, and I'm pretty…Continue

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

Anybody else hate Daylight Savings Time?  Sign Here:
http://www.avaaz.org/en/petition/End_Daylight_Savings_Time/?cHnwoeb

They need a million signatures...from all over the world The  petition was started by a Canadian; I remember how ghastly DST is in the northern latitudes.

My first summer with HOI, we rehearsed in Minot ND, and it was daylight, or twilight, till nearly midnight. We had to get up at 6AM to have time to shower and have breakfast [in a smallish hotel] to get to the arena on time, and then spend the next 8+ hours skating our bunz off.  How the *bleep* can a person get enough sleep under those conditions?

YES! Kill DST!  Only Arizona has any sense; they ignore it.

Steph, that bulldog is GOOD!

Spud, the Hellfire and Dalmatian funny!

Joan thank for the James Randi link - I have his book. He is awesome at debunking nonsense and thanks for the beauty of science.

Spud love the Dalmations - very cute cartoon.

Ruth thank for Splaterday - funny. Yes it seems like the rich are in control of everything.

Joan love the cat and dog - very cute.

Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Saturday.

"UR getting to the point, right?" reminds me of when I used to sit in church and be subjected to those long boring sermons.  Wish I could get all of that wasted time back.

Joan, thanks for the Symphony of Science and Beauty of Science videos. Great stuff.

I agree with you whole-heartedly in your view of the world situation. I wonder what kind of society my daughter will live in when she's my age in 30 years time and I'm not sure it will be a better one.

Yes, I've seen several documentaries with the Amazing Randi including one where he and a scientist went to France (?) to observe an experiment that claimed to prove that homeopathic water is different from other water. When observed by outsiders, the experiment failed. It's hard to trick a trickster :-)
