I am wondering if people would be comfortable sharing such info like how old you are, married, single, kids, occupation, goals for the future. I think
it would be nice to get to actually learn more about people and realize that they are more than just words on a screen with cool avatars. I feel that
if people knew some more about people then maybe it would not get as hostile in the threads as it seems to be around here. Also knowing peoples
occupations may help give validity to what they say in the threads. I do know it is very easy to lie about what you do but i like to think that for
the most part people are honest. I realize this is mainly what the introduction is for but it doesn't seem like people really get into this stuff.
Mods feel free to close this thread if you believe it is in poor taste or that it would basically be the same as the intro forum. I will go first.
I am 31 years old have been married for 11 years and we have one handful of a child
I am a veteren of the US Air Force and was forced out by a medical discharge due to a severe shoulder injury that resulted in multiple surgeries and a
I am a paramedic and i am a full time student studying pre med and hopefully on to med school when i am done.
My wife is a stay at home mom (by her own choice) and we are contemplating home schooling for our daughter simply because the school system where i
live is not very impressive to us.
I hope others are comfortable posting some info about themsleves and i look forward to learning and getting to know more people on here.

Currently I work part-time as head of the IT department for a large industrial fastener company (you know: screws, nuts, bolts, etc.). I'm 60 now,
and looking forward to retirement. When I was a youngster I was a Communications Technician in the Navy; that was 1968-1973. Neither a long nor a
particularly brilliant career, but I wouldn't trade the experience for anything. I've held many jobs, but I won't burden anyone with that list
For what it's worth, I have nearly 30 years of experience in desktop publishing, page layout, prepress, etc., and I've more than a little experience
with all the Adobe products (since even before most of them belonged to Adobe)--as well as a substantial list of other software. I say this for the
benefit of the Birthers. I've looked at the BCs every which way, and I'm still not sure what to make of it all.
As we seem to be revealing marital status, I've never been married. But I love women and was taught from childhood to properly respect them. One of
the few things I *almost* always get right.
What brought me to ATS was, oddly enough, research on various conspiracies. I think I first turned it up in a search on UFOs. I had my second UFO
sighting in about 2004 and was just idly Googling and found ATS. At some point I developed an interest in 9/11. Anyway, I came here intermittently for
years; then I lurked pretty regularly for a couple of years; and then I decided to join.
I haven’t yet initiated a thread of my own, but I have a couple of ideas and some preliminary research done. It’ll probably be on the absurdity of
jumping blindly onto UFO/ET bandwagons, and who to believe and not believe--and how to know the difference--in the UFO/ET communities. Basic stuff for
the gullible and inexperienced among us. There are those who evidently think that enthusiastically embracing anything and everything you want to
believe is a prerequisite to being a useful conspiracy nut. Somebody has to be the adult here….
That sounds really good. Myself i absolutely love ancient history. I think if i was not interested in medicine and helping people that i would have
majored in history with a focus on ancient, if such a program even exists.
I came here because I wanted to see the conspiracy site my partner was always on.
I am 29 and he is 30, we have been together since we were 16 & 17 but we are not married.
I'm not the marriage type.Weddings are embarrassing, being the center of attention in a huge dress.
I started working again in a whole new industry in January.
I had been off work for a year because I had a son in February 2010,
his name is Eddie Rock and Roll (last name omitted).I also have a 3 year old girl called Scarlett.
Until 2009 I worked as a managing Optical Dispenser/Optical Assistant.
the most enjoyable activity I performed while there was the school screenings, I would go to primary schools and test kids for colour blindness and
vision problems. Using the retinal camera was also fun, taking photos of patients' fundus.
I also cut and fitted lenses, and managed the shop.
Everything except conduct the main vision test and write out the spectacles prescription really.
In Jan this year I started as a manager at a hearing clinic.Iv'e gone from knowing everything about one facial organ to nothing about another.
I like weird things, if it's dark, twisted or obscure,deep or inane.
The first post is always the most important one. I look forward to reading it. Do you have any plans after retierment?
Plans after retirement? Well, I was thinking of sleeping for about a week-and-half . But I've been considering a small sewing-machine repair shop.
Home-based. Affordable. Hard economic times for a lot of people--as I'm sure we've all noticed. Logically it would be computer repair, right? But
no: It's never hardware anymore; it's always virus and trojan attacks. You can easily spend a week chasing down and cleaning up after viruses. And
another 3 days on neglected maintenance and protection. It's stupid and illogical--never mind expensive--to spend a week (or more) working on a
computer. It's a lot easier and cheaper to go buy a new one.
With a great name like eddie rock and roll there is no need for a last name Me and my wife were not really the marrying type either, so to avoid
the whole crazy church wedding we just went to the court house and made it official. Good luck in your new job, after you learn all there is about
hearing then you only have 3 senses left to master
Age – 18
Relationship status – Single
Children – None
Occupation – Student; McDonald’s part-time
Goals – Finish College; Get a car; Travel the country, possibly visit Western Europe; and eventually find a girl and settle down
I am about 6’5” tall, American with Hungarian ancestry, love politics, writing and history, love nature and hate urban areas, am politically
conservative, enjoy funny TV shows like (Three Stooges, Looney Tunes, Family Guy, South Park and American Dad), am not too picky about movies but do
not like horror, gore, or musicals, and listen to mostly old school rock and jazz.
That pretty much sums it up.

I'm 21, turning 22 in a couple of weeks. I don't believe in marriage. I'm single with no kids. I don't have a job, but I have a job interview
coming up. I'd say making music would be a future goal. Whatever it is that I do, I'd prefer it be something I'm passionate about.
I'm half Potawatomi Indian, half caucasion.
Drugs are a big part of my life. Drinking also. I enjoy learning.
I love the blues, but really, I like every genre. I love music, period.
I'd also like to write an autobiography. My life has been journey.
