What I am wondering about is our backgrounds, our lines of work... we make all these posts and threads (with a good many being excellently done), but
what do we bring to ATS? How do our personal experiences or interests add to ATS?
For instance, me.
I am the son of a Viet Nam vet and an "ex-hippie"; both taught me to never blindly follow what is accepted, to learn the truth by myself. My father
is very much like Walt from Gran Turino and my mother is a Bible reading Wiccan.
I grew up seeing shadows, while being told it was my imagination, only to be told later on the truth (my mom hid her mystical side to "protect" us
I am an artist, and a writer... as such (any artist can tell you) I can see the truth and bend it... or expose it.
I study religion and spiritual beliefs, all types and aspects. I love to learn all I can about human thinking and psychology, and can usually tell
when someone's full of it.
And lastly, I work in security.
What's this bring to ATS? Probably not much!
[edit here on down]
I should also probably mention that I play Warhammer 40K heavily, so I know the truth about xeno scum... and that I'm a father of two boys (uggh),
who I want to live safe.
