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.

Steven Weinberg on his anti-theism

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Loren Miller yesterday. 4 Replies

I like the sound of Steven Weinberg's voice. He has a calming impact on me as I rush to get my home of 41 years ready to sell and plan and put into motion the new garden at my daughter's home. My home is full o empty boxed quickly filling with the…Continue

Tony: WHAT great recipe?  Can you post it?  Please?  I collect recipes and cookbooks, whether I ever use them or not (I'm diabetic, so I have to watch simple carbs, but sometimes I just don't give a *bleep!*)

I've been voting every election, national, state, local, since 1960 (that was back in the day when you had to be 21 to register.)  I vote by mail now, it's SO much more relaxing than trying to find a place to park and stand in line forever...  I'm glad that California allows people to register as Permanent Absentee Voters without having to be disabled, out of town, or anything like that.  Do any other states allow that?

Congrats USA! I've lurked here, but it's still a prehistoric laptop while my pc is in repair, and the laptop panics about ever 30 seconds. But I'm all right and LOL about the Queen"s speech.

I also have a whacked sense of humor, FA. No worries.

Funny message from the Queen.  It's kind of scary that about half of it is true!!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on November 7, 2012 at 8:40pm

Joan, patience, like skepticism, is a virtue.  I guess that makes me very virtuous.  Now that I think about it, my mother probably wouldn't understand that video for what it is.  At least you know about the pitfalls of "Onion" stuff.  I have to say, though, with that big, beautiful, wide-grim smile you have in your picture, you're the last person I'd suspect of not having a sense of humor.  You certainly had me fooled.

A MESSAGE FROM THE QUEEN

"To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II."

Thanks to Michael Yon

The Flying Atheist, I am usually the last one in a group to get a punch line or recognize sarcasm, or catch on to "Onion" stuff. I wanted to be sure I had'n't missed something about "where's the girl". Yes, I agree you often use, "off-the-wall humor" and just be patient with me; I am known as not having a sense of humor but I think long-time friends will attest to my getting better. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on November 7, 2012 at 7:02pm

Joan, nothing serious about or cruelly meant with that video.  Just a peculiar little video with an unexpected outcome.  It caught me off guard and made me chuckle.  I've always appreciated off-the-wall humor.
