Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Sunday

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 myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo on Saturday. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Sentiment Building to Deport Nation’s Billionaires

How The Oil And Gas Industry Awakened Oklahoma’s Sleeping Fault Lin...

"On our map, you can see an estimation of the known faults that crack the surface of Oklahoma like an overbaked cheesecake. “Any part of the crust has a bunch of faults in it that are old faults. They were created in past geologic times. Oklahoma’s faults are tens or even hundreds of millions of years old, dating to times when the boundaries between tectonic plates were in very different places." “There’s a mountain range in southeastern Oklahoma, called the Ouachita, that was actually the remnants of an old collision zone,”  ~ Susan Hough, a seismologist with the United States Geological Survey

Plate-scale stress fields driving the tectonic evolution of the cen....

My goodness, this takes me back to my undergraduate days (1977) and my minor in geology. 

Many earthquakes were recorded before fracking, after fracking, the quakes are stronger and more frequent. Wherever there is a fault zone, regardless of how ancient the fault zone is, the cracks and crevasses hold oil and gas now being drilled and fracked.

Something I read concerning prayers going out to the flood victims.

Prayers are like masturbation. It feels good to the one who's doing it but does nothing for the one ​you're thinking of.

Yes, its ALWAYS about money!

Comment by Ian Mason on September 4, 2017 at 1:46pm

A river cruise can be a lovely thing, Daniel.

Patricia, the problem is that no-one thinks things through when there's a profit to be made and anyone who raises objections is regarded as negative.

Comment by Patricia on September 4, 2017 at 1:25pm

Arguments go on here all the time about who should pay for damages done by human caused damages. Landslides happen quite often after heavy rains in those areas, because things are done underground creating a lot of instability.

That is a sad looking bear.

Comment by Idaho Spud on September 4, 2017 at 7:54am

Ian, from what I've read, Southeast Idaho has not allowed fracking yet.

Comment by Plinius on September 4, 2017 at 7:02am

The north of the Netherlands sits on top of a gasfield. Since the 60s a lot of gas has been used and the north has had many earthquakes because of it. Not stronger than 5, but a lot of houses are slowly torn apart and the lawsuits about who should pay for the damage are endless.

a horrible picture, Joan.
