Hello ATS, just wanted to introduce myself to you and hopefully meet a lot of like-minded people

My name is Joel, I'm 23 and from England. I've been browsing the ATS topics for quite some time without an account, I used to find it really interesting read a lot of general news topics that maybe slipped under the radar and some of the more mainstream conspiracy theory topics. I suppose my main reason I haven't created an account until now (And I suppose it still sort of stands in a way..) is that I I like reading a lot of topics but with some of the bigger ones, I sometimes feel a little bit intimidated (Haha, God, I know it might seem silly considering it's only an Internet messageboard!) but some people seem so clued up on everything, I'm like

I'm hoping it'll be a little bit different now though as I'm currently off work for the next 3-4 months because of my broken leg so I'm hoping I can mainly research some more and I hope to get involved a little bit more with the community.
I suppose some more information about me though - I love football/soccer - Thats actually how I got my injury, double leg break from a nasty tackle - I'm into videogames, movies, I do try to play the piano a lot but I've had to cancel lessons too from not being able to get into town. I used to speak a little bit Italian from a college course and my proudest achievement is probably going to meet one of my penpals abroad (Felt absolutly scared to death going by myself but at the same time, I felt it make me a stronger person)
Sorry if it's a little bit long but introduction topics I dins pretty hard to do. Thanks for reading anyway and hope to meet some nice people on here!

Thanks for the reply Sauron and for all of those links too, hopefully won't need too much help but I'll have a quick look through them

I do have a quick question though if anyone could answer it - You know if I want to post in a topic and I'm typing a reply, is there any sort of option to open up the original thread in another tab for reference when replying? I know it might sound a bit weird how I've explained it but something similar to the GameFAQ forums if any of you have used those? Or is it easier just to right-click and reply in a new tab?

And thanks for the advice Chucky - Gotta get myself a girlfriend first but I'll heed your advice when I do
