Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 850
Latest Activity: 5 hours ago

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.

I like the sound of Steven Weinberg's voice. He has a calming impact on me as I rush to get my home of 41 years ready to sell and plan and put into motion the new garden at my daughter's home. My home is full o empty boxed quickly filling with the…Continue

Think Goodwill Industries does well by the poor?  Fact is, they do WAY BETTER for themselves, to the point where America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, thinks they're ripping off the christian playbook a bit too well!  Have a look for yourself:…Continue

Joan - you are a wizard with the video clips! I also really enjoyed the Phil Zuckerman piece you posted. I love that guy. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 13, 2014 at 9:16pm

Carl, I wonder what these guys do for fun! Likely not listen to birds chirping in the forest. 

Why would anyone take on such a job? Do they like their work? Do they like each other? Do they ever lose their tempers? 

Most unwelcome message from one to the other, "Oh! Oh!"

I agree Randy.  Jumanji is about the scariest movie I like to watch as well.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 13, 2014 at 12:19pm

That certainly is a great view Carl!  I would love to climb those things.  Heights never did bother me.

High anxiety, Carl. I couldn't do that.

It sounds like you're busy, Mindy, in the really good way. Hope you don't miss the young ones too much.

I'm probably in the minority here but I prefer Robin Williams stand-up work.

Are you down there Carl? Watching this with sweaty hands - I can get dizzy standing on a newspaper. But really great views!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 13, 2014 at 9:38am

This is absolutely crazy wild.  Two men doing maintenance work on one of the two antennas atop the John Hancock building here in Chicago.  Great views from high up.  Hold on to your seats!

My favorite is the Fisher King

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0101889/ but I'm always attracted to ´down and out´ stories.
