Hey guys,

Been around ATS for around 6 years now, finally signing up,

A little about me, i'm from Australia, and currently going through the process of joining the police...still a few months to's a longer process than I thought.

My interest lie mainly in alternative history, like advanced ancient civilizations.

Also, anything to do with life on other planets, and I have an avid fascination with the occult, like voodoo and hoodoo, I only read about it though, so no, I don't use voodoo dolls =P

I have been into anything "different" since I was 16 years old, i've just about read about every "weird and wacky" thing out there, came across some very interesting writings in my searches, one of my favourites being Madam Blavatksky.

Anyway, not much to add, just wanted to introduce myself, i hope to contribute to some of the topics which catch my interest..

see you guys around.

Edit to Add.....I'm a pretty hardcore gamer too!

Re your interests: you'd really enjoy The Pyramids of the South Pacific if you could get hold of a copy.

At 27-28 years of age you are perfectly ripe for the Police simply because you've spent the first 10 years of your adult life as a civilian. Chances are, you'll last a whole lot longer in the Police Force.

My father was a high ranking officer in the Police and he always said those with 5-10 years experiance as a civilian with an average education make the best Police Officers and last longer. The average age of most officers in NSW alone is approx 5-10 years simply because most of them go straight from high school to the Police Academy, lack social skills (among other things). Those with some years in civilian life (including those who are parents) for the most part last 15-20 years with at least 2-3 promotions.

Good luck to you and hope all goes well.

I'll keep an eye out for that book, thanks.

As for the police, I just want to make detective, if I can get that at around 35 i'd be happy.

Thanks again for the info.
