Hello. I wish to join because I have been a lurker on this forum for a while. I find the discussions respectful and I have a keen interest in the subject matter.

Welcome to ATS!

There is lots of information and discussion here on many topics.

Take some time to look around and familiarize yourself with all of the boards including ATS for alternative and conspiracy related discussion; BTS for lighter subjects and chit chat; PTS for political discussion; and our very own news portal ATSNN.

Each board has several forums with it’s own assigned moderators. Whether your just reading or want to jump right in, we only ask that you follow the site's terms and conditions.

If you have any questions you can check these handy resources:

Zedd’s Handbook of ATS Links
The Frequently Asked Questions page
And my very own: Answers to FAQs not in the FAQ page

Also very handy is the search feature (on the tab menu just bellow the banner at the top of every page) to make sure you are not double posting something already being discussed.

If you still have questions, don’t hesitate to U2U a moderator anytime. There is always somebody online and you don’t need a minimum of points or posts.

Have fun and see you around the boards!

Now I dare you to tear yourself away from your computer!

Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm not quite as robotic in real life as my introduction makes me sound...


I wanted to join for a while, but was just busy and kept forgetting. I was reading the thread about China and Taiwan and wanted to post, so I finally joined.

This is definitely a forum with some extremely creative and intelligent people. I hope that I can contribute some insight.


A little about me:

Croatian-Canadian, socially liberal, fiscally moderate, agnostic. Currently a 4th year undergrad (Environmental Science)..

Hajduk means "bandit" or "outlaw" in Croatian (sounds like; "Hey Duke").

See ya around the boards!

Ya, I would imagine that "Hejduk" in Slovak is the same word as Hajduk in Croatian. Culturally very similar, and at the time that word originated, I think there was a lot of overlap. Many Croatians moved into Moravia and Bohemia (modern day Slovakia and Czech Republic) when the Turks were raiding Bosnia and Croatia. It's still evident today in the Slovak language and many of the family and place names.

The "Hajduk" specifically were raiders, not unlike "Robinhood" who during the 1400s and 1500s used to ambush Turk merchants and colonizers of the area. Today it is the name of a very popular football team in Split.


Sorry to bore you.. I'm a big history buff.
