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.

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

Started by Loren Miller yesterday. 0 Replies

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

"The Lord is our God; the Lord is One." "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father, but by Me." "There is no god but Allah, and Mohamed is his prophet." Assertions, taught as fact, but without any form of corroborative…Continue

I try to look decent when I leave the house as well.  I do have some self-respect. 

I see people at the airport ready to board planes in outfits I wouldn't wear to walk out to the alley to take out the trash.

Carl, The Big Bang Theory makes me laugh out loud quite often, something that rarely happens with other shows.  The first season was especially hilarious.  Knee-slappers one after another the whole 20 minutes.

It's been raining a lot here as well.  That is, a lot for Pocatello.  One inch in the last 2 days, and another the 2 weeks before that.

Ordinarily, I like rain, but it's also been cool for the last 2 weeks, and my watermelon don't respond well to cool weather.  I've got some big ones, but if this keeps up, they won't ripen.

Thanks for the great offer, Patricia.  Sounds like a good deal to me.  Hope your PC connectivity issues clear up quickly. 

Spud, that's a funny Big Bang Theory clip.  I really like that show a lot. 

Mindy, the deluge of rain just finished up here in Chicago.  Wow!  What a rainstorm!  Very intense with lots of lightening.  The lights in my apartment flickered on and off several times.  I was worried about loosing my power, but all is well in the end.

I'm with sheldon.  It looks like I'm going to miss "when man will be able to transfer his consciousness into a machine and achieve immortality." by "that much."

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 23, 2014 at 2:07pm

Patricia, I want a new body transplant too!  I'd even be willing to pay full price.

I was going to ask if someone knew where you were, as I hadn't heard from you in a week.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 23, 2014 at 2:04pm

Mindy, if you find a place to buy a new digestive system, let me know! :)

Comment by Ian Mason on August 23, 2014 at 11:58am

True, that. Looks and appearance give positive reactions. I once saw my ex-dentist and her receptionist reduced to giggling schoolgirls by a "handsome hunk". They didn't even care that his credit cards were rejected and he couldn't pay. The dentist looked very disappointed when she saw that I was the next patient.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 23, 2014 at 9:58am

I like Patricia's purple cat also!  lol

Sorry I misspelled your name Chris.  I may have been doing it for a long time.  Giving myself 20 lashes with a wet noodle.
