I just wanted to make a formal introduction of myself to the ATS community.
I go by The Doctor. Why? Because I look serious. I have glasses. I say smart things. I'm quiet, yet mysterious. Rugged enough to pull your appendix out with my bare hands, and then fling it off into the distance before it explodes, like they do on the TV.

In all actuality, my name is Chris. I live in the still vibrant cultural hub of Ann Arbor, Michigan, mixing with yuppies and hippies and cute ladies alike.

I do a weekly music radio show called The Hydrogen Jukebox, where David Bowie dances alongside Fela Kuti, while Captain Beefheart cooks up big-eyed beans while getting coy looks from Billie Holiday while she listens to Albert Ayler tune-down quantam theory on his saxophone.

It airs on WCBN-FM Ann Arbor ( on Tuesday 12-3pm EST, and on A3Radio ( Tuesday evenings 6-8pm EST.

I hope I'm not violating the no-ad policy 1 post in, but I don't make any money doing this anyway!

Anyway, glad to be finally doing more than just reading posts. I'll help as best as I as can getting to the truths of these matters with y'all in the most level-headed open-minded rational and irrational manner I can.

No, I dont think the mods will mind this.

And cool, you're a DJ.
Have you just done these two radio shows
, or are there more?

How long have you been around on ATS? It's an awesome site, but one that will probably take a little while to get a nnag of the ropes.

So, to get a feel for the place you'd probably want to go to the ATS help files. Just about everything you would ever want to know is here: ATS Help Files. Have a look at everything there. Start with clicking the Quick Guide up the top.

The AboveTopSecret main page has most of the stuff you would probably want to read, there being around 50 forums on about anything you'd ever want to discuss, such as 9/11 & 7/7 Conspiracies, Aliens & UFOs, Secret Societies, Weaponry, Space Exploration, and even Mythical Beasts.

In addition, BelowTopSecret has a lot of stuff as well, such as the Dreams & Personal Predictions thread, as well as discussions on Movies, Music, Literature, and Computer Help. It is used for the more off topic stuff.

The other one, Politics@ATS, is a place to discuss politics (as political discussions are not allowed on ATS because they usually become heated).


On the main ATS page, there are a number of features you can use to help with browsing around the site, like the New Posts button, which lists all recent posts on the board, or the myATS page, which shows you all the recent threads you have posted in, as well as a snapshot view of any forums you are interested in. If you want to add or change these subscribed forums, click the circled button:

Click Image to Expand:

The list down the side is all my subscribed threads. It shows who last posted as well.

If you want advice or are confused about something, feel free to post in the Board Questions & Business thread, email me at this address, or send a User2User message to one of the moderators from your Member Centre page. To see a list of all the mods, go to the ATS mainpage and scroll down. Towards the bottom and to the left there is a list titled ' Staff'. You can send a U2U to anyone listed there even if you do not have the mandatory 20 posts.

This here is a great post explaining how to get the little image under your name on ATS as well (be warned, the graphics need an update!).

I hope this helps you on your anti-ignorance forays (:puz
, and I look forward to seeing your posts around.

Gee, welcome theDoctor.

This being a conspiracy website and all, aren't you the least bit nervous posting all that IRL stuff

Have a great time, unless the MIB come and get you first that is

I know this statement was a joke, however a ruptered appendix is no laughing matter...I know because mine ruptured in 1990 and I was 3 months pregnant when it happened. Due to a a blundering diagnosis by a doctor who wasn't my usual physician, I was treated in the hospital for a bladder infection from Friday night until Monday morning. When my regular doctor (he had been out of town) came in Monday morning it didn't take him 2 minutes to find the real cause and I was in surgery a short time later. Because of all the poison in my system as a result of the rupture, I had tubes inserted to drain out the poison and had to stay in the hospital about 10 days.

I had told the doctor on call (on Sunday) who filled in for my regular doctor.."You had better do something and you better do it fast because I won't be here (alive) in another 24 hours." I was in so much pain I couldn't lift my legs from the side of the bed while sitting up.

****A SPECIAL NOTE**** One way to tell if it could be the appendix is called the REBOUND / REFLEX TEST. This is what my regular doctor did to make the diagnosis. He pushed in on my side (which didn't hurt), HOWEVER...when he let go (REBOUND / REFLEX)...THE PAIN WAS UNBEARABLE.

rebound tenderness (pain on the cessation of prolonged, constant, deep palpation of the tender area), positive Rovsing's sign (pain or tenderness in the right lower quadrant when the left lower quadrant is deeply palpated then suddenly released),
