Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 878
Latest Activity: on Tuesday

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 don't know about you guys, but there wasn't a performance review I had in 30 years of field service that I didn't LOATHE.  It seems as though Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, is up for turning the tables on the person you would expect would…Continue

Learning a Language as a Mature Adult

Trying to keep my mind exercised, and not interested in most of the reading materials that I can find.I decided to attempt to learn a language.  Actually, two.  The dilemma is, how do I do that without going to school - not an option - and without…Continue

The Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris Feb 19. 14 Replies

I suppose it was the news that Playboy magazine was returning nudes to its pages after a year's hiatus that sufficiently perked my curiosity to check them out again.  I hadn't looked at Playboy since perhaps 2008, when I began to recognize that I…Continue

Such Lyrics!

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Grinning Cat Feb 13. 9 Replies

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 11. 1 Reply

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

Questions......

   It has been 6 month now since I signed up for Atheist Nexus membership. The past year has been sort of a bi-polar wave of emotions for me. I hope I wasn't offensive to the folks on here and I think I have been but I don't know to who. My desire…Continue

What the hell did that guy THINK was going to happen?!

Comment by Daniel W on December 15, 2016 at 6:48pm

I think he's just stupid and it can't be fixed.   He also has a video in which he belly flops from a step latter onto 1,500 thumbtacks.

What a maroon.  What an ultra maroon.  I could only watch a small portion of this.  I can't stand to see people try to kill themselves.

Don't try this at home, at the office, in your car, in a pool, maybe just in-sane.

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 15, 2016 at 5:22pm

Daniel, do you, or anyone, have any idea why this guy would try such a stunt? He i horribly burned and he must be in a lot of pain for a long time. I hope he gets some medical help!

Rationale: 

1. Wanted to get publicity?

2. Wanted t commit suicide?

3. Is insane? 

4. Stupid can't be fixed? 

Comment by Daniel W on December 15, 2016 at 4:32pm

Kathy, thanks for the update on Terence.  I was concerned.

Everybody, I recommend that you NOT try this at home.

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 15, 2016 at 12:13am

Chris, thanks for the information about Terence Meaden. I have been looking for his new book.

Carl, you know you can't trust an army of air filled snowmen.

Bert, that should be posted on a porn site. Lol
Comment by Plinius on December 14, 2016 at 10:58am

I friended him on Facebook, where he posts about the Stromberg circle and his new book.

Comment by Daniel W on December 13, 2016 at 2:14pm

Has anybody seen any posts from Terence Meaden lately?  He used to be quite active.
