Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 869
Latest Activity: 22 minutes 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.

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

@Booklover  Take many deep breaths and have a glass of wine.  If that doesn't work, call me in the morning and we'll continue with Bloody Marys.

Cool graphic Ruth! Thanks I enjoyed it.

Comment by Steph S. on July 9, 2012 at 11:50am

Sorry to hear that booklover. I refuse to be on Facebook myself. It's too much trouble. So I just have this site and I really like the people here.

Ruth, that's wierd...most of the symbols for the wildfire areas on that map look like cats.  (The rest look like army helmets.) Are they trying to tell us something?

Comment by sk8eycat on July 9, 2012 at 10:58am

@booklover: I would rewrite that joke. Have the woman be a pushy fundie, proselytizing the little "wise little girl," and have the punchline be "How do you know there's a god if you don't know shit?"

Most atheists don't claim to know for certain that there are no gods; we've just never seen or heard of any verifiable evidence that any exist. And it's up to the person making the claim to provide the proof.

Patricia, the smoke drifting to BC Canada is more likely to be from fires in Wyoming and Montana. See the US Wildfire map.

Nor does weather. 

That's one thing that p*sses me off about The Weather Channel, and many newspaper weather maps; they show the US as an island.  And the Weather Channel ignores everything west of the Mississippi River about 75% of the time. (Their headquarters are in Atlanta, I think.)
