Hey all. (I tried posting this once and it didn't seem to catch, so I'll try it again)
I've been reading ATS on and off for the past year and a half. I always told myself I would register, but I never found the time. Now that I have
some extra time on my hands, I thought I would stop lurking, get myself an account, contribute, and make myself official.
I guess I should give some background. I've always had a fascinatino with conspiracy theories, even from an early age. My mom always used to watch
paranormal themed shows like the X-Files when I was a little kid growing it. Its kind of funny. While other kids were afraid of the boogeyman, I was
afraid I would be abducted by aliens. My choice of reading material ran the gamut of standard conspiracy materials: aliens, Loch Ness monster, Bermuda
triangle, all the "required" stuff. As I got older, though, I got addicted to watching the news and thus shifted my attention to more earthly,
government conspiracies. Based on what I've seen, I doubt that the current administration (U.S.) is competent enough to pull off a massive conspiracy
-- only one large enough to cover its own tracks. Still, I know that weird things happen everyday, and I'm down for reading about it and making
contributions when I can.
Anyways, I suppose that's it. I look forward to being a member of the ATS community and meeting you all. Peace
