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.

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller Jan 1. 0 Replies

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

Minimalist?

Bertold, lol. I was going to go with cheap ;-)
Chris, maybe survivalist. It's the only one that comes mind at the moment.

Commies?

Comment by Plinius on December 22, 2016 at 2:06pm

Cannot find a word in English - the Dutch word is consuminderaar. It describes people of the 'less is more'-type, they buy as little as possible, recycle, and try to live on a lower income with less worry and more time off. What words have you got for this?

Chris, that was years before the do not call list went into effect.
Comment by Randall Smith on December 22, 2016 at 7:55am

I know the feeling, Daniel. Ever since I got my new TV and upgraded my DISH programming, I've problems with a pink, then frozen image. I have to unplug and reboot the receiver and TV waiting 10-15' to get a picture. I've called twice and got the run-around. Can't get the technician to come out, etc. etc. I asked for financial compensation for the troubles and aggravation, but "no". Next step, cancellation and go with DirectTV.

Happy Saturnalia.

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 22, 2016 at 2:04am

I am impressed with the quality and integrity of this fine group of people on Atheist Nexus, Hang with Friends! No one here willing to be gullible and accept poor performance by a provider, and especially sensitive to the beauty of the cycles of the year and its deeper meaning than religion. The Winter Solstice and the shortest day of the year, and the returning of the sun-light. 

I love the science of the event; it is even more miraculous than the fabricated stories of people who herded goats.

10 Things About the December Solstice

Comment by Chris on December 22, 2016 at 1:11am

"The do not call list" is available.

When you continue to receive unwanted messages from sales people tell them that you don't want to receive anymore calls from them.

That legally should stop the calls. 

If the calls persist denote it and file a complaint with the FCC.

Telephone polls and solicitors for donations fall outside the FCC "Do Not Call" list.

I believe in your both your cases I would have lost it too.
