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.

If you read Andrew's stuff regularly, you get used to his style....but it's very much like The Onion.

In the meantime, Curiosity will me landing on Mars!  Watch it from JPL Live here:

Classic POE. That's what Laughing in Purgatory is known for. :)

Patricia all sorts of craziness in the US.
Sounds like an odd school.

Sk8eycat I enjoyed reading your posts about your sister. Very interesting.
Comment by Paula T. on August 5, 2012 at 8:51pm
You know, it is a relief to know the story is satire, but unfortunately, it is believable. The part I questioned was asking African American teachers to wear white make-up...but weirder things have happened! Thanks for the link, The Flying Atheist.

This is a comic made-up article from the website, Laughing In Purgatory.  The owner/author is a member of Atheist/Nexus.

Comment by sk8eycat on August 5, 2012 at 8:35pm

Patricia, where did you get that story?  Do you have a link?  I've been looking and looking, and can't find anything about schoolteachers voting to wear any kind of costumes, OR black teachers being ordered to wear whiteface makeup.

It's gotta be a fake; it's just to outrageous to be anything else.
