Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 869
Latest Activity: on Monday

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.

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat on Monday. 24 Replies

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

grooming minds (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Aug 10. 20 Replies

There are likely very few among those who frequent Atheist Nexus who would argue against the idea that indoctrinating children with religion is at minimum less than moral or ethical and more likely considered child abuse. Personally, I have aligned…Continue

I wonder, box stores may sell cheaper, but I surely like my local baker who turns out pie crust as good as grandma's; the butcher who has only antibiotic-free beef from a local farmer who has immaculate operations that I am welcome to visit; eggs from a woman who raises egg money to augment her retirement; fruits and vegetables from farmers' markets in the neighborhood during summer and autumn. I drove only 300 miles in the last 6 months; I read articles from the internet and watch videos available at no cost. All in all, I live a pretty simple life style and love it. I suppose it wouldn't do for an energetic person, but I am happy and have everything I need and want.

I wonder if huge corporations will be affected by these new sources for food?

IAN- "when new ideas are accepted the wrong person gets the honours."

Were you thinking of Nikola Tesla being ripped off by Thomas Edison and Marconi...among others?

Sk8eycat, you'll need to readdress that question to Ian.  He made that statement.

Life in all its wonder.

Sadly on point, Grinning Cat.

Meanwhile, United and Continental merged and effectively ruined my favorite airline (and no, it was NOT United!), and now what is it ... US Airways and American are looking to merge and cut the choices down even FURTHER?

Seriously ... it looks as though we're headed for multiple monopolies in multiple industries and no one gives a good damn.

The first honest cable company ad? (NSFW: contains the F-word.)
