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.

The myth of religions

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

That should be a routine procedure. Wish him luck and a speedy recovery.

Our friend Daniel found out yesterday he has a detached retina. He's having surgery for it today.

Carl, it's good to hear from you. How have you been doing lately? Can you get outdoors in this frigid winter? What do you do during a typical day?

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 19, 2018 at 2:14am

I've always been a big fan of ELO. Love the song All Over The World. It's one of those uplifting songs that has an "anthem" feel to it that you don't want to end.

I've been to see the film 'The Death of Stalin'. While the state terror of the Soviet system is no laughing matter, the film's presentation of the Politbureau as a bunch of clowns and buffoons is comic. Really good performances and direction by all concerned.


In September 2017, the head of the Public Council of the Russian Ministry of Culture said the Russian authorities were considering a ban on the film, which, he alleged, could be part of a "western plot to destabilise Russia by causing rifts in society".[8]

Nikolai Starikov, head of the Russian Great Fatherland Party, said the film was an "unfriendly act by the British intellectual class", and said it was very clear that the film was part of an "anti-Russian information war" aimed at discrediting the figure of Stalin'

Some may fall into metronome synchronization.

Good stuff, Thomas.

Another I liked was showing prisoners can do something with their energy besides riot.....
