Just wanted to say a quick 'hello' to everybody here at ATS. I have been lurking about and reading in this forum for several years, and have recently decided to join, officially.

Before I start posting to the point where occassionally logging in once in a while turns into a growing addiction worse than even Facebook, I thought I would spin up a brief introduction to let everyone know that I join with pure intentions, will follow the rules of the board and wish to eventually get to know those who share my basic beliefs (whenever the time comes in which my personal beliefs are shared on here, if ever).

As mentioned in the title, I live in the lovely country of Canada, where the Summer is never long enough, and the Winter is.. get the picture.

I look forward to participating in discussions of my interest soon, maybe with YOU.

LOL I always thought Canadians hated it when we brought those up.

I very much like eh. It seems a very proper way to end a statement, prompting a response from someone.

I think Americans should say eh. Americans don't say it to make fun. We use when we get a chance too cuz we like it.

except it sounds weird when your from Maryland.

hello, hope you got a better welcome than I did.

Yes, us Canadians do have quite the accent, some moreso than others. I use the word ''eh'' all the time, without even realizing it, simply because it's the norm around here. Basically, you adapt to the language, and before you know it, you are part of the Canadian stereotype

I was born and raised in Canada, and have never left the far.

Again, thanks for all the warm welcomes, it makes me feel a lot more comfortable, being a new member and all...

On an unrelated note, do some of you find it rather difficult posting your own views/opinions on here, though? I mean, it seems that nine times out of ten, each thread of interest tends to turn into a flame war of some sort, and it's really discouraging to see this happen almost constantly. I guess this goes hand-in-hand with the subject matter in these forums, which are undoubtedly the most 'touchy' subjects when it comes to arguing over who is 'right' and who is wrong', who has 'evidence' and who is 'making up' stories...

I work an office job with full Internet access, so I'm on here most of the time out of sheer boredom, although I must freely admit that being a lurker on this site since 2004, I sure have self-educated myself in many areas, as there is a TON of worthwhile information compiled on here, enough to discern for yourself what is 'right' and what is 'wrong', so to speak.
