Another new person here. I'm a college student from, but not in Pennsylvania and I won't be more specific because I'm trying to develop a healthy sense of paranoia. I thought it might be interesting to lay out how I got to this site:
I woke up this morning to my alarm clock at 9AM Eastern time, tuned to this radio show hosted by a guy with a weird accent who talks about classical music. Today he mentioned the innovation of the metronome, Beethoven's mocking song of the man who invented it, and the incorporation of its melody into his 8th symphony, the whole time comparing the rhythm to clockwork. That stuck in the back of my head until I got back from class, when I proceeded to reset the alarm, which reminded me of the earlier subject on the radio, which reminded me tangentially of the Old Faithful geyser. At that point I remembered some magazine article mentioning that Yellowstone Park was on top of a giant volcano, so I spent the next few hours on the internet looking up information on that. Somewhere on page 4 of the Google list was a thread on ATS discussing the Yellowstone volcano, and so after reading that I went on to check some other threads, and here I am.

welcome to ATS/BTS. I read your entry and, to be truthful, that's more or less the way I found myself registering. I've discovered that there's plenty of news and info out there. ATS/BTS helps make all of that news and info into something, well, different. There are so many different views and opinions on things that it really becomes helpful to question everything. View everything from several different angles -- in a way, they are all valid -- and then make up your mind. ATS/BTS has become an invaluable tool to help shift your paradigm.

Again, welcome. I hope to be seeing your "nick" on many, many posts and replies.
