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.

Whether as atheist, agnostic, gay / Lesbian or whatever, the process of coming out has been a repeated topic of discussion here on Atheist Nexus and for good reason: it is at once a necessary yet potentially supremely painful process, depending on…Continue

"Practice makes perfect."  That's the concept, isn't it?  Work diligently at something, especially something you enjoy and are adept at, and your skills sharpen, your judgment improves, and the product of your efforts demonstrate that improvement. …Continue

I favorited the Spock lol too! Thanks sk8eycat!

Ah.  I was able to get in, too, but the Lewis Black video at the beginning of the page has been withdrawn for copyright reasons, or something..  Maybe that's what the problem was.

I don't think I'm going to bother to post the Spock LOL, though. I'm reading a new Rita Mae Brown murder mystery (Murder Unleashed ... NOT part of the Mrs. Murphy/Sneaky Pie series), and I'm hooked.  Its main theme is the banking/government/foreclosure mess as it's affecting the Reno area. I damn near defaulted on my own mmortgage about a year and a half ago....took nearly 6 months to refinance as a reverse mortgage.  I ache for the people who are too young to get a reverse.

I think certain people on Wall St. and in DC want all of us to drop dead the minute as we're too old and/or disabled to work and pay taxes.  I'm both. And I still have to pay taxes on the house.  (Scroo der former governator!  He cancelled tax breaks for seniors and disabled people, and Gov. Moonbeam hasn't done anything about that.)

Something is very, very wrong in the USA.

I just got into Atheist Humor. It seems OK now. BTW, thanks for the LOL, it's now among my favorites.

Sk8ecat and Pat, I just got into Atheist Humor. It seems to work now (11:37 PM eastern standard time) 12-21.

I love Spock! Thanks sk8eycat!
Comment by Pat on December 21, 2011 at 8:19pm

@sk8eycat. You're right! WTF? I get can't get the Atheist Humor group either. I, too, am wondering what happened. Anyone know?

Comment by sk8eycat on December 21, 2011 at 8:10pm

What happened to the Atheist Humor group? I can't access it my computer or something?  I just wanted to post something that made me hoot, even though it has nothing to do with atheism...

Spock suddenly realized that he did not know the answer to the Jeopardy science final question.

Comment by sk8eycat on December 21, 2011 at 7:59pm

Ahhhh.  I miss him!
