It has been a while since I participated in the threads here, I needed to take a bit of a breather and learn how to better handle devoutly partisan
members/mods. I quit posting nearly a year ago, but have been reading almost daily.
Leaving ATS was one of the best things that I ever did. Posting as regularly as I used to, I never had the chance to allow my mind and my thoughts to
evolve, my opinion was already made up. Taking a step back and reading instead of interjecting has allowed me to view subjects more broadly, while I
still lean one way or another, my overall view of things, especially politics, is more rounded… Perhaps I was one of the partisan people I was so
While I wish not to disclose my old username as I feel it no longer reflects who I am, I would like to tell you a bit about myself.
I am a SX/EW operator. I run a plant in AZ where we mine copper by leaching ore with sulfuric acid, then plate the solvent mixture onto cathodes via
electrolysis, creating 80-140lb plates of 99.999% pure copper.
I studied chemistry at Northern Arizona University, and metallurgy at the University of Arizona.
In my free time I enjoy reading, playing video games, tinkering with nearly anything I can get my hands on ( I love other people’s trash!!),
competitive shooting, lapidary/silver smithing, reloading, and playing bar games.
I look forward to once again participating on this site and with its members in a more positive and productive manner.
