Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 1 hour ago

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 Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller 22 hours ago. 16 Replies

I suppose it was the news that Playboy magazine was returning nudes to its pages after a year's hiatus that sufficiently perked my curiosity to check them out again.  I hadn't looked at Playboy since perhaps 2008, when I began to recognize that I…Continue

I don't know about you guys, but there wasn't a performance review I had in 30 years of field service that I didn't LOATHE.  It seems as though Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is up for turning the tables on the person you would expect would…Continue

Trying to keep my mind exercised, and not interested in most of the reading materials that I can find.I decided to attempt to learn a language.  Actually, two.  The dilemma is, how do I do that without going to school - not an option - and without…Continue

Such Lyrics!

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 11. 1 Reply

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

   It has been 6 month now since I signed up for Atheist Nexus membership. The past year has been sort of a bi-polar wave of emotions for me. I hope I wasn't offensive to the folks on here and I think I have been but I don't know to who. My desire…Continue

I just love the moon cat Halloween Samhain pic Tony. Pagans and Wiccans celebrate Samhain Tony. Very big on full moons. That lolcat is the best booklover! So funny.

Singing in the Rain - great song.

Comment by Ian Mason on October 18, 2012 at 11:47pm

Can't hear that song without thinking of the German disco version:

"Sinking in der reyn, yust sinking in der rein". Can't remember what the name of the group was supposed to be but was obviously a bunch of second-rate session singers cobbled together with a drum-machine and a synthesizer. So bad it was funny.

Tony, I don't think I have a "soul," so I ain't afraid.  And "Singin' in the Rain" is one of my all-time favorite musicals, too.

And, as a former ice skater, this just blows me away every time I watch it:

Don't know if we've had this one before.

Time for work, getting ready, wanted to leave you with this. From 'Singing in the Rain'.

Samhain just around the corner. My fathers mother immigrated from Ireland when she was 6 yrs. old. I vaguely remember her, died when I was 15. But when I was younger and she did come around, she told the best shivery stories to us. And even though she didn't have a brogue being raised in America, she always called Halloween Samhain.

So, happy Samhain to all, and keep an ear out for the Ban Sidhe. And whatever you do Halloween night, accept no ride from Dullan in his Coiste Bodhar, for he is out collecting souls, and you don't want to be counted in that number, for sure.

Goodnight to all.
