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 could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

And I bet you went out on that socialist road to buy milk, bread, eggs, and other groceries that were socialistically inspected for food safety!

Hey, Bertold!  That snowplow wasn't followed by a socialist police car, was it?  Or maybe a fire engine???

Just a passing thought......my mind has been overwhelmingly preoccupied with the fact that we have a sociopathic liar and sexual assault perpetrator about to become our president, who is so obviously inept, unqualified, and dangerous, who is appointing people to cabinet positions who feel it is their sole duty to dismantle our government piece by piece, and who has not been seriously challenged and prevented from assuming this role before serious damage begins.

How did we get here?  So many people have failed us.  Our fellow voters failed us.  The media failed us.  The Electoral College failed us.  Our politicians failed us.  All common sense, ethics, and decency has been cast aside.

Just musing.

Oh, a documentary about the new cabinet?

Not sure whether it's me or not, but I feel like a whole lot of "timely" content is showing up in the media these days.  Apparently Hulu wants in on the scene, too:



Because they are tackling a series based on Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale.

That should be a great experience, Carl as long as nobody starts looking for another child born in Bethlehem.

On the topic of celestial events, I saw this today.  Awesome opportunity.

A new bright 'star' could appear in the night sky in 2022

A huge collision between two stars some 1,800 light-years away could add a bright new object to our night sky, say scientists – though this temporary star will only be visible for two or three years.

Remember though that technically this collision – should we be able to witness it – actually happened a long, long time ago, as the light we'll be seeing will be 1,800 years old.

Ian, make sure you seek out some good crab cakes to eat when you're in the DC/Maryland area.

"Social media attention economy" encapsulates it, Ruth! You wrote about how rage and fear memes are more attention-getting, and thus more profitable, and will tend to displace everything else unless we make significant changes.
