Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

All the boys are too non-confrontational to Sheldon's mom, especially for scientists.  In the first season, I was laughing constantly, but The Big Bang Theory has lost a lot of it's charm for me, and religion is a large part of the reason.  It's just goes too easy on religion.

My favorite show is Futurama, and the way they make fun of religion is a large part of the reason.

Yes, Leonard's mother is an ass as well.  I also switch channels when she's being mean to Leonard.

Wow, Ian! Great! You deserve a luxury or two.

Yes, Spud, I agree. Sheldon's a momma's boy, and that irritates me. I dispise Leonard's mother even more--atheist or no.

Another ½ marathon run. Another year sober. Have stuffed myself with curry and trimmings and will now laze the afternoon away with chocolate biscuits and "The African Queen" on DVD.

I saw that episode of The Big Bang Theory, and didn't like that it was a draw.  

I also don't like that they make Sheldon such a wimp when his mother starts talking about religion.  Sometimes he makes an attempt to refute her BS, but wimps-out when she barks at him.

I usually go to another channel while she is talking about her certainty of her delusions.  I can't stand it.

Did anybody catch "The Big Bang Theory" episode the other night where the two mothers got into it over religion? Hurray for the writers to tackle the subject. The result was a draw, by the way.
