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.

Think Goodwill Industries does well by the poor?  Fact is, they do WAY BETTER for themselves, to the point where America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, thinks they're ripping off the christian playbook a bit too well!  Have a look for yourself:…Continue

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Chris, I didn't know about flying cameras. I thought all witches had were flying monkeys! LOL

Comment by Steph S. on August 20, 2012 at 1:48pm
Oh noes! Don't send the flying cameras! LOL
Comment by Plinius on August 20, 2012 at 12:37pm

wackaloon, dickweed, the words you teach me are wonderful, and they're not in my well-behaved Dutch-English dictionary! I know it's a horrible story, but it's also necessary to LOL. Real life is often more idiotic than fiction, so laugh at every opportunity. Or I could send a flying camera...

;-D

Chris, I take back my LOL.  Yes, that would be very upsetting having such a loose canon living next to me.  Very scary. 

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 20, 2012 at 11:04am

Wow Chris, I'd be a nervous wreck also, if I had a wackaloon like that harassing me!  

Comment by Plinius on August 20, 2012 at 10:48am

Thank you Steph, you're very kind, but I can assure you that I never felt strong...

Have a Happy Monday yourself too!

Comment by Steph S. on August 20, 2012 at 10:37am

Wow - how terrible Chris that you would have to put up with something like that. The truth is often stranger than fiction. I can see how the stress level would be intolerable. I don't see how you were able to put up with that as long as you did. You must be a very strong person.

Happy Monday everyone!

The man had a neglected diabetes and was hallucinating because of it: he thought I sent flying cameras into his apartment to spy on him. Terrorised me for three years to "stop it". Was seen in the street with a 20 cm. long knife to defend himself against me. Screamed every night about the witch (who couldn't sleep at all). I've never been so happy as when we could sell that apartment and move. Cost me some years to lose the stress.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 20, 2012 at 9:37am

LOL  Yeah, Chris.  I'd also like to know why a neighbor would think you were a witch. 

Idaho, your telephone device story reminded me of cheezy but fun Ray Milland movie, The Man With The X-Ray Eyes (1962).   At first it's fun to see through people's clothes to their underwear, but his x-ray vision increases and gets more intense to the point where he doesn't enjoy it anymore after seeing disturbing images.

Why was she convinced you were a witch, Chris?
