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.

The Gun Industry's Killing in Killing (Betty Bowers)

America's Best Christian has finally acknowledged that there may be one outfit which has her belief system beat for it's leverage on the government.  No great surprise, it's the NRA and the gun industries.  Betty's a good loser, though.  She's made…Continue

The Ark Encounter: A Less than Grand Opening (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller on Tuesday. 4 Replies

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

We Are America / Love Has No Labels (John Cena - Ad Council)

NBC News Gives Ken Ham Free Advertising

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Jul 2. 13 Replies

Ordinarily I toggle between CBS News with Scott Pelley and NBC News with Lester Holt in the early evening, mostly to avoid commercials, but I'm wondering if I should give ABC's news division another chance after this evening's broadcast.  NBC…Continue

Jelly Fish

When we lived in Washington, D.C. in 1968, we often went to the ocean where we saw all kinds of things we had never seen before, or touched. Jelly fish were one such species. We picked them off the beach and threw them to each other, sometimes with painful consequence. We also on what seemed free-of-jelly-fish, and get stung on our feet. These interesting and exciting adventures as we long ago moved from those shore.

Perhaps the pc just decided to behave!

I vote for the ninja cats, Booklover, they are wonderful! So many expressions on those black faces! Here's one of Dido at that age.

Trying again. I don't use Chrome, but IE. In the last few days the pc got stuck after 20 seconds on AN, or else when I tried to scroll.. I've almost typed a message without getting stuck! And I still haven't got the foggiest idea what caused the problem. Try Add Comment:

Chris, I have a problem with using the Chrome browser.  I can post a reply (as I am now), but cannot reply to another member's post within threads.  I am able to reply to those while using IE, but I really hate IE.  I hope someone else who has more tech knowledge may be able to offer another answer.

Comment by Plinius on October 13, 2012 at 11:49pm

Good morning! My pc gets stuck every time I visit AN - some reli influence perhaps? It's almost impossible to put up a message; are there more people with the same problem here? And how can I fix it?

Comment by Steph S. on October 13, 2012 at 8:57pm
Oh yay! Black cats - just what I love to look at! : ) just love animals!
Thanks so much Booklover and Tony.
Love black panthers - so cool!
