I've held off from joining this board for probably the same reason many people don't join...
because so many other folks are here, and they echo my sentiments already, so what good can I do to contribute? Well, based on this, I started
looking at things that I'm actually interested in, and the history of topics found here on ATS; I look for discrepancies and abandoned ideas (short
abandoned topics), on alternative stuff to come up with things to research into valid topics.
Unfortunately for myself, I am so opinionated, that I'm likely to get banned if I stay up too late with a budweiser in my hand, reading and posting
The sheer number of members, and the degree of knowledge combined on this board makes me feel a bit small. Which is a shame. Sometimes I feel like
this board needs to organize an ATS bake sale, much like Rush Limbaugh did with Dan in Colorado in the 90's... (Dan's Bake Sale), so that we could
all come together and meet each other.
At least we all could find some common human ground, shake hands and what not. (ATS=Brave New World?... ahem, well hopefully not a B-NWO!).
Well, that's my thoughts, I don't mean to sound negative, but I've got a few actual positive comments to make on some existing threads (but
they're old), I guess I'll bide my time and make the appropriate number of posts to newer threads (and not dig up ancient threads) to get my
Amateur astronomer, since I was a 12 year old kid (70's)... a buddy of mine brought over his big expensive telescope to my front yard and I saw
saturn (it was moving fast through the eyepiece) live for the first time - I was hooked. At the ancient age of 50 now I have 3 scopes, 1 decent, and
2 kinda... whatever. Would like to get a really big fat monster dob with auto-tracking... lol, I'd have to build it myself, but not in this economy.
Hubble is so darned good, it's insane. But I still want my own original viewing pleasure.
Electronics Technology, Radio Freq/Analog and Digital.
Programming Languages. Have expertise in several. My work.
Weird Stuff, (yeah I can dream and imagine).
I hate hoaxers, but I love the imagination they put into their hoax work. The Great Dark: Google it - First #1 result. I can do stuff similar if I
spend the money (+ awesome imagination) on the software, but this is one super amazing piece of work, one must really have a really deep thought
process to create stuff like this.
Folks I like:
1. Albert Einstein - I have an intense respect, and have studied his work & history for years.
2. Anybody that promotes the alternative views of things as we know it. Especially the ones that are claimed as hoaxers here on ats and everywhere
else - simply because they were gullible enough to promote a sighting or report that has proven to be fake. Even Neil Tyson says Einstein's math
stops working once you've reached the singularity of a black hole.
1. Like most I guess, but my top item would be after viewing threads here for years - a newbie that posts a new topic, and it turns out to be fake or
whatever, and the vet posters here... end up making fun of him, even though he was simply asking for a look-see. And for this, I'm joining now
because I found one of these threads from 2008. I have no idea if the person has posted again since. This place has a hostile element, so I guess
I'm here to help out.
I hope to contribute.
Gonna go hide in my bunker now for a while and wait for all the blast furnaces to run out of fuel first.
