Read ATS on and off over the years. My interest in fringe topics waxes and wanes, though my interest in cryptozoology has remained strong from early
childhood. My active reading about CZ has trailed off because of lack of interesting new things. You would think that with the ubiquity of cheap
digicams, *someone* would have gotten a 'squatch vid by now
Anyways, I finally registered after lurking for a long long time because I have a newfound interest in several things that have information about them
in these circles but are decidedly *not* speculative, but the interest in them comes from speculators.
I have strong knowledge about aerospace and aircraft (I've been to the EAA show ~ 20 times, since I was very young.) I've seen the B-2 fly, I've
seen the Blackbird fly, I've seen the 117 fly.
As far as some minor tidbit for my intro thread --- This isn't secret info, persay, but I think it would interest some of the same people. Military
planes have popped through the soundbarrier at least twice in my life at a major urban-area Airshow I go to every year. Once, it was a B1-B and you
could see the vapor cone from the ground, with skyscrapers in the background. Pretty cool stuff.
If anyone wants to point me to info/threads about how the early (late 40s and 50s) underground bases in the U.S were built, I would be appreciative.
I've gone through the appropriate forums and found little. Everyone seems mostly interested in the black-budget activities/projects in these bases. I
want to know specifics about what is known concerning who built them, how they were built. I'm specifically interested in what companies/military
agencies were involved, and more specifically if the engineers who were the brains behind these civil engineering projects are known and who they
I'm undecided about Aliens. Something goofy has/is going on, but I just don't think I buy the alien angle. I'd love to see/read something that
convinces me, but imho all of it eventually points back to Lazar an he doesn't impress me.
Definetly a bigfoot believer, I'll pass on chupacabra, mogle-mimbie (sp?) and the moth-man.
The nuclear program has always held strong interest for me from a variety of angle, most of them sensationalist to be honest
When it comes to actual conspiracy theories, I try and keep my mind out of it. Whispers of truths get painted bright with pattern-identification in
chaos. I DO believe that we are run by a small group of elites, but I DON'T think they are coherent. Take that for what you will.
I'm a grad student and live in a big urban center in the midwest. I'm in my late 20s and engaged. I'm a video game dork, and currently fly about in
internet spaceships. Anyone who knows what I'm talking about, knows what I'm talking about
Anyways, hello everyone!
Anyone who has the kind of under-ground base info that I'm looking for, please point me at it!
*Edit -- Another interest. I have a strong interest in ancient civil engineering and technology. Tangentially, I am quite interested in the "ancient
spaceman" stuff, but as I said I don't quite buy into "Aliens are here" so I don't quite know how to reconcile the two. In a more grounded way I
am VERY interested in the time period when Neaderthals and HSS were coexistant. IMHO, they had full speech, and this is interesting because it means
that for a time, two different modern hominids were hanging around on earth. As per ancient civil engineering, IMHO Giza is too mixed up with pure
speculation and other sites are neglected from peoples interest for why I know not.
