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.

God's Annual Performance Review (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on Monday. 6 Replies

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

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

Kathy and Daniel, Ruth and I are still around. Life happens... :)

Spud, I see all your symbols except for the apple logo (both on a Windows 7 desktop computer and on an Android phone).

Good luck, Ian.

Comment by Loren Miller on December 7, 2016 at 12:27pm

Pardon my breaking the conversation thread, but this song's been going through my head all day ... and I just had to get it OUT:



And now the sun's comin' up...

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, Ian!

Comment by Ian Mason on December 7, 2016 at 12:24pm

All 5, Spud.

Job interview tomorrow. It's only 8 weeks work but every little helps. It will involve getting up at 4 a.m. though.

Thanks Carl.

Same here, Spud.  I see all five symbols.

Comment by Idaho Spud on December 7, 2016 at 10:38am

Thanks Chris.

Comment by Plinius on December 7, 2016 at 10:33am

All five of them, Spud!

And you're right, Kathy, better to have loved and lost...

Sending kind cat vibes to all dogs...

Yesterday I posted 2 comments that never showed-up, but I'll try again.

In the gardening group, Daniel said he could see my apple computer symbol on his tablet, but not his laptop, so I ask that group if they could see the symbols I post properly or not.  As there is more of you peeps posting here, I would appreciate any of you that can tell me how my symbols show on your computer, to give me an idea of whether to use them or not.  I'll put the symbol one space after the last word:

Here is my apple computer symbol   

Temperature degree symbol °

Smaller temp degree symbol ˚

Cent symbol ¢

Infinity symbol ∞

Ohm symbol Ω
