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.

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

Started by Idaho Spud. Last reply by Jonathan Simeone Aug 5. 29 Replies

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

Joan, the thumbtack video is where he bellyflops onto 1500 thumbtacks from a ladder.  Daniel mentioned it and I saw the place you can click on to see it, but I did not click on it.  You can see the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9eXldURi1I8

Speaking of something I can't stand to watch on TV: 

The ACLU has sued the small community of Knightstown, IN for putting a cross on top of the town's Christmas tree. So, of course, the townspeople are all up in arms (actually, in crosses) protesting the board's decision to take the cross down. It is so maddening to listen to the religious nuts complain. They just don't get it. Worse, the local TV stations make such a big deal out of it. Isn't there more worthy news out there? I'm with Joan.

I am glad I don't have a TV and be tempted to watch the profundity of "The Science of Supid".

It seems we move closer to insanity than reaching for the knowledge that comes from information, experience, and exploration.

Is anyone familiar with the TV program 'The Science of Stupid'?

It shows more of those strange people hurting themselves and someone explaining what went wrong with their attemps, but I guess they couldn't use this mad idea...

Comment by Ian Mason on December 16, 2016 at 12:44am

Such a strange man on that video. Some years ago there was a trio of young Japanese men doing similar things and calling it performance art.

Spud, what is a thumbtack video? and where can I find it? 

Chris, I found his book bits and they make interesting reading. Thanks. I like his topic and his writings. 

Comment by Plinius on December 16, 2016 at 12:09am

I only wrote that Terence Meaden is active on Facebook, he posts bits of his new book.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 15, 2016 at 7:39pm

I saw that he had made a thumbtack video, be no way am I going to watch any of that.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 15, 2016 at 6:59pm

What is the story on Terrence Meaden?  I see the question asked, but for some reason I don't see the answer that people are thanking Chris and Kathy for. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 15, 2016 at 6:56pm

What the hell did that guy THINK was going to happen?!
