I joined ATS in 2003 back when my internet connection was dial up, which for you guys who never had the experience, it was like this: click on an
interesting thread, go have a shower, read page 1, click on next, go wash the dishes, sit back down at your huge desktop with a hard drive 5 times the
size of the laptop I'm using now (propped up by pillows warm and cozy in bed) and read the second page. I remember people complaining they could
never get a hold of me on my landline at night - the telephone cable was plugged into the hard drive and the phone handset unplugged. Have to have
your priorities right?
The internet was still new to a lot of people and it was awesome when I found the ATS forum. Finally somewhere I could chat and read about subjects
like UFO's, aliens and conspiracy theories. Learnt about things I never knew existed like HAARP and so many secret bases.
I first became interested in aliens when I was younger after watching Chariots of the Gods by Erich von Daniken, a TV special on JFK Assassination got
me into conspiracy theories.
Little did I know how many people throughout my life would treat me like a weirdo or nutcase because of my
alternative interests and often uncannily ability to see right through some people (not literally) - enough to make them feel uncomfortable. A few
years ago I actually witnessed my first UFO, 3 orange orbs, which confirmed what I had always believed, that we are not alone and aliens had been
visiting for 1000's of years.
Anyway, a few days ago I spotted a headline about Walmart plumbing problems and I began searching for links to Jade Helm and mysterious "goings on"
at the Mexican Border. I finally ended up back at ATS trying to log into an account I hadn't used in a very long time. Thanks to Mark Allin for
helping me get me back in
Looking forward to catching up on an enormous amount of threads and navigating my way around the forum.
