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.

appropriating morality (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo May 1. 7 Replies

We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating…Continue

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

Ian, from what I've read, Southeast Idaho has not allowed fracking yet.

Comment by Plinius on September 4, 2017 at 7:02am

The north of the Netherlands sits on top of a gasfield. Since the 60s a lot of gas has been used and the north has had many earthquakes because of it. Not stronger than 5, but a lot of houses are slowly torn apart and the lawsuits about who should pay for the damage are endless.

a horrible picture, Joan. 

Comment by Randall Smith on September 4, 2017 at 6:50am

While living in Pomona (CA) back in 1971, I was shaken out of bed by a 6.7 earthquake. It killed over 50 people, mostly in a veterans hospital in Northridge if I remember correctly. I had cupboard items fall down.

I worry about my son living near Santa Cruz (CA) with the San Andreas fault nearby.

Sad looking Polar bear, Joan.

The state of Oklahoma has numerous earthquakes that are attributed to fracking.

It's such a horrible process.  Extracting more fossil fuel to burn and wasting and contaminating water at the same time.  How sad.

I've never experienced an earthquake or tremor.  

Comment by Thomas Murray on September 4, 2017 at 12:19am

  In my experience, the only times when earthquakes are dangerous is in the city, or near tall structures. But in the case like an  earthquake at Diablo Canyon Power Plant no place is safe.

Did the air smell fresh on the water?

That look horrendous, Joan. I remember hearing in Nuuk, Greenland that more bears are heading south from the Arctic in search of food.

Spud, any of the quakes related to fracking? There was a report earlier this year that seemed to find a link between the two.

Comment by Patricia on September 3, 2017 at 2:39pm

I don't think the super rich can comprehend what reality is.
