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.

attacking ideas (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Apr 4. 1 Reply

Attacking ideas is a considerable portion of what we as atheists do.  Why attack ideas?  Ideas earn attack when they don't serve people, not just us but those who adopt said ideas, mistakenly thinking that they have value when they don't.  Our…Continue

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Mar 28. 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

My mother was just talking about the summer of 1980, and how hot it was in Dallas that year.  My farm calls are really wearing me out this month.  Zombie j, can it get hotter?  I'm going to the lake tomorrow!

Anyone hear about what Glenn Beck said about the shooting in Norway? Can we please classify that guy as a terrorist and arrest his ass?

AKron, have you forgotten the two straight weeks we had in the 90's?

sorry to offend.

Sentient Biped, I take mild offense at your "suffering 70s" comment. The cooler weather you enjoyed was a consequence of the gigantic high stuck over most of the rest of the US. The article said, "... , the high-pressure system that's holding the heat in place also is keeping conditions cooler than usual in the Pacific Northwest." As people were dying, I assume you didn't know this connection, otherwise you wouldn't have been flippant.

My god, with that heat, all the cheese in wisconsin is gonna melt. The state will turn into one gigantic pizza!

It has been miserable here in Detroit for the last week!! We had a high of 100 last Thursday and the night's low was 80 degrees. The humidity made being outside very uncomfortable and I'm grateful to have central air. Low of 70 tonight and a high of 88 tomorrow.

I love summer and don't look forward to 7 months of cold weather, but I also hate the humidity. I'd rather have my house open with the nice breezes blowing in.

Sentient - I know I know. Here is Wisconsin it's roasting right now at 77 degrees, and it will only get down to 65 tonight. What will we do? Tomorrow's high of 85 will kill us for sure!

Here in the Pacific Northwest there is also much suffering. It got up into the 70s today. The sun shone. My chickens, who have lived in the rainy northwest all of their lives, freaked out and kept running away from their shadows, to no avail. The shadows ran as fast as the chickens. Their eggs all came out scrambled. So you see, Texas isn't the only place that has suffering.
