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

Started by Daniel W. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 2. 28 Replies

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

Carl, 1908 was my Dad's birth year. He would be 108 years this December. You mean this team has not won a game since 1908? How did they keep their fans for that long? 

A great collection, Carl, and an inspiration to anyone who feels they never win! We need that spirit. Keep trying!

Randy, sorry to hear you missed the game of the century. As you might imagine, the mood here is quite euphoric. For you, and anyone else who may be interested, I compiled a collection of links of articles full of great photos and videos, all with a local flair.

To start out appropriately, here's a recording from 1908, the last time since 2016 that the Cubs won the World Series.

I have to agree with the others here. That is a beautiful photo, Chris!

Comment by Ian Mason on November 4, 2016 at 3:28pm

Beautiful sunsets. Thank you. In Denmark there's just cloud and more cloud.

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 4, 2016 at 2:55pm

Very nice.  I'm saving those sunsets.

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 4, 2016 at 1:45pm

We live in and have seen so many spectacular scenes of our good Earth, it is pure joy to celebrate it and participate with it. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 4, 2016 at 1:14pm

Chris, a stunning sight; to think you have that scene every day of the windmill. It is beautiful alone and with the sunrises and sunsets, a welcome image. 

Comment by Randall Smith on November 4, 2016 at 7:55am

Cubs win! Cubs win! And I missed it. Wouldn't you know, after 73 years of agony and heartbreak, I'd miss the "grand finale"? Why, you ask? It just so happened, that my daughter from Honduras was flying in to Indianapolis that night-- 11:45, to be exact. I was away from the TV for two and a half hours. And no Indy station had the game on the radio. Oh well, disappointments are part of life. "Wait'll next year"!

Comment by Loren Miller on November 4, 2016 at 7:47am

Wow, Chris!  That shot is positively iconic!

Comment by Randall Smith on November 4, 2016 at 7:44am

Oh, Chris, what a glorious photo!!  It's prize worthy.

I'm one of those great appreciators of sunrises/sets. I try not to miss them because when I'm dead, I will.
