Originally, I was responding to a "leaving forever" message... but it went away. Not too surprised, I suppose, but glad I could salvage my response.
Pretty much sums it up, I think. I mean... sums me up. A skeptical believer. A doubting zealot. Convinced that I'm still on the fence. I'm torn
between two absolute, and completely incompatible belief systems... and kinda okay with it. It's nice. There's always a position to fall back on.
See what I do? I get stuck building a long, rambling intro to a long and rambling body of the post. Maybe the obvious solution is to build a long and
rambling "outro", as it were, to balance out the crazy. See below for more details.
Me, I hang out in the back. It's where the cool kids go when they just want to entertain the possibilities and spend time lurking, scheming... or
just hanging out. I like to read things people submit, and sometimes say them out loud in different voices. I think it's a nice picture... I don't
think it's an ancient Martian airbase, but I do like to look for patterns in the rocks. I like to read books no one can decipher, and marvel at the
architecture of giants, or aliens, or alien giants... yeah, and I guess humans make some neat stuff too. I have relatives I'd swear were reptilian,
but I'm not the type to keep in touch, so I'm probably safe. Most of all, I come here for the survival tips. I have no intention of "prepping" per
se... I just like to be aware of what others are doing, so I can add it to my list of things to consider doing... you know... after I've finished all
this... stuff I've got going on. I think I'll stay. Just a bit longer. Maybe until someone finds the decoder ring, or shows me how to make a truly
cool spaceplane. Good. It's a deal. The spaceplan plans first... then after a short time in which I start a multinational conglomerate with the
income of a whole array of too-big-to-fails and the wherewithal to build a spaceplane, I will likewise bid you adieu.
So, you see, it's my way of saying goodbye to whoever that was, but also, maybe an introduction to myself? I never really posted one of those...
unless I did once, but seriously, who's going to fact-check me? Besides, it's not so much an introduction as it is a bunch of things about stuff.
"That's a Chit Chat, Bryan." Oh. Is that what that means? And why are you suddenly calling me Bryan?
