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?

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

Chris, I don't know what else to say about the NASA photo you posted, but it is really F'n cool. I love when natural phenomena play tricks on our eyes and minds without using artificial manipulation.

And now, a little something to lighten your day:



Scaramouch, Scaramouch, will you do the fandango?!?

Joan, I saw the same story about the Siberian snowballs yesterday on BBC. Their article has a little more explanation of how they are formed. According to the article this has also occurred in Finland and also right here on Lake Michigan just last year. I seem to recall reading about it in the local news.

I'm not getting notified either, Carl.  You might Report an Issue on it.  Think I will, too.

Is anyone here experiencing problems with notifications from A|N?

I'm not getting notified when someone posts in a group I belong to or in a discussion I participate.

I checked my overall email settings here on A|N and all are the same as they've been for years.

Chris, that is an opportunistic photograph if ever I saw one.  Thanks for posting!

Joan ... that's just ... WEIRD!

Great video, Daniel. It's very mild profanity. I liked "sentient septic tank" and if you cut Mein Kampf into tiny pieces it sounds like tRump on twitter.

As to the black son story, it's not a story without DNA.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 5, 2016 at 3:22pm

Bill Clinton's black son claims a DNA test was never taken in spite of the Clinton's claims of taking a test.  He certainly is entitled to one! There is a resemblance in his eyes, definitely, and his voice; his lips are more on the Negroid side as is his hair. He is a very handsome man and one that I would be proud to call "son". 

"Clinton, the maker of bastards"

I wonder if Clinton has any regrets? No! or he would take responsibility for his actions. 

Bill Clinton, like Trump, have an attitude of entitlement with women and money. No sense of accountability or responsibility.
