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 found out later that you can get a lot of motor dysfunction if they force you to use the wrong hand. Did your granny have those?

Comment by Plinius on August 13, 2015 at 12:37pm

I was adamant that I couldn't write with my right hand. In the end I was allowed to write my way but I got no end of criticism and no help. My writing is just horrible, but if you have a pc who cares?

My grandmother was left-handed, but when she went to (Catholic) school they made her learn to write with her right hand because left-handedness was the work of the devil.

Comment by Plinius on August 13, 2015 at 8:40am

I am left-handed, Carl, and I think the "myth" came about because left-handers must always find solutions to work with right-handed tools and systems. But I don't believe we're more intelligent. 

I'm Always Right

Ian, I hope your situation works out the way you prefer. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 13, 2015 at 8:04am

Chris, I'm assuming you're left-handed.  Is there any truth to the "myth" that left-handers are more intelligent?

Welcome Hex, glad you found us.  Feel free to chime in anytime and chat.

Oh, I meant: Happy Left-handers Day!

A Left Handed Thing

Welcome Hex5! You're not disrespectful at all and we're used to everyone being in a different mood. I like the Noah story!

Comment by Hex5 on August 12, 2015 at 4:56pm
I dont mean to be direspectful but i thought a bit of humor might ease your pain. I came up with this whimsical bit to a creationist who was trying to discreadit darwin to no avail....Ye and god said unto noah take unto the ark two of each animal according to its kind. The wolf and the bear the lion and the zebra and tyranosaurs rex and all the dinosaurs according to there kind. And noah said unto god holy shit i dont think they are going to fit, but god commanded it anyway and when the floods came the boat under great weight sank, and everyone died
