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.

America's Best Christian has finally acknowledged that there may be one outfit which has her belief system beat for it's leverage on the government.  No great surprise, it's the NRA and the gun industries.  Betty's a good loser, though.  She's made…Continue

The Ark Encounter: A Less than Grand Opening (The Thinking Atheist)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller on Tuesday. 4 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

Seth Andrews has been through the mill as it comes to dealing with those who insist that their faith in a deity is not just valid but necessary to their lives and to all lives.  Having dealt with that gauntlet and come out the other side an atheist,…Continue

It seems to be a repeating pattern: I wander around the internet and inevitably, I stumble onto all manner of stuff.  It happens all the time on YouTube, and as you doubtless have deduced, yours truly tripped over something a couple minutes ago,…Continue

NBC News Gives Ken Ham Free Advertising

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Jul 2. 13 Replies

Ordinarily I toggle between CBS News with Scott Pelley and NBC News with Lester Holt in the early evening, mostly to avoid commercials, but I'm wondering if I should give ABC's news division another chance after this evening's broadcast.  NBC…Continue

Several people have had problems with posting pictures from webmail such as Yahoo Mail. (The picture that works for you, but not other people, is coming from your private email account.)

The solution is to download the picture to your own computer (right click and "Save picture as..." or something similar), then use that copy in your A|N post. The second button in the toolbar, "Add Image", in the group to the left of bold, italic, etc., lets you browse for a picture on your computer and upload and include it.

Oh, and it doesn't hurt to repeat this advice about passwords: words in a dictionary, including foreign-language dictionaries, are NOT good passwords. Hackers routinely use word lists to guess passwords, and they automatically add variants like "!nc0rrect".

A better tactic is to take letters from a memorable phrase, such as "The Flying Spaghetti Monster likes chocolate chip cookies with extra hot sauce", giving TFSMlcccwehs.

Sk8eycat, you seem to have a history of not being able to post your cartoons correctly.  You're reminding me of "Uncle Don Reads the Funnies" from radio days.

Thanks, Ian.  I just read the wiki article and it prompted me to Google "hamsters and chocolate" with the following result:  Feeding hamsters chocolate.   I didn't have dogs or cats in my house as a kid but we always had a collection of gerbils or hamsters, and I knew that I was NOT to feed them chocolate.  I never knew why until today.  Isn't the Interwebs awesome?!

If you can't see "Senior Brilliance" (yeah...I Copied it from an email, and I DO have Ya-effing-hoo Mail), it's a photo of two white-haired women grinning at each other. 

The caption says, "My memory really sucks,Mildred, so I changed my password to 'incorrect.'  That way, when I log in with the wrong password, the computer will tell me...'Your password is incorrect.' "

I can certainly identify with that!

I think it's the theobromide...it's a heart stimulant, I think.
