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.

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Speak English? YOU FIRST! (Betty Bowers)

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

It seems as though lately, Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is evolving into America's Best Patriot.  She has recently been taking some fairly well-aimed shots at a certain Orange Nightmare and his sycophantic hangers-on, regarding the…Continue

I was surprised my new television set arrived yesterday! My daughter helped me set it up and running. Come to find out, unless I upgrade my DISH channel package, I can't get HD. The entire screen is not used, either--more like 38" rather than 48". I called DISH about it, but got the run-around. Upgrading would cost me another $50/mo!! Not worth it. Disappointing.

It doesn't look like I've missed anything in the past week while my computer was in the shop. Bad monitor--one of those old fashion TV sets. Not only did I buy a new one, but I bought a new television. I couldn't pass up the Black Friday deals. 49" flat screen, here I come!

Daniel, sorry to disappoint, but the map was just an example of optimistic programming; the developers obviously never applied a sanity check to their results:  http://www.ganssle.com/tem/tem317.html#article2

...Is this supposed to be... the lake of fire?...

There was a "proof" using physics and Bible quotes showing that heaven is hotter than hell!

Grinning Cat, I'll tell you one thing....that geekier person is not me!

Comment by Grinning Cat on November 22, 2016 at 3:23pm

Spud, I doubt it too, especially since those temperatures are some 70 times hotter than the core of our sun! (Fahrenheit works for estimating ratios at such extreme temps that dwarf the difference between 0°F and 0°K.)

Someone geekier than I could undoubtedly tell us exactly what sort of data type overflow or misinterpretation we're seeing on that map.

2 Billion degree temperatures in Portland?  I've got some doubts.

Just finished reading Malamud's 'The Fixer'. More frightening than Kafka. I also have a suspicion that anti-semitism, particularly in Russia is still alive and as foul as ever.
