Hello! Finally decided to register because I can't keep being a quiet lurker anymore. I've seen too many posts I'd like to comment on, so here I am.

I first discovered ATS about 4 years ago when I began researching things for myself rather than taking everything at face value and not going any further. What got me started was the movie Zeitgeist, which blew my mind at the time. So I began watching every youtube video I could get my cursor on from a wide range of topics. Not much longer after that, I began to listen to some of Alex Jones' broadcasts and researched Ron Paul and aliens which lead me to the ATS forum(about 3 and a half years ago). ATS has come a long way since then, I can tell because almost everything back then should have been in the Skunk Works as the foil-hats were the majority.

A little over a year ago I began scanning alternative news sites for "What doesn't get reported" in the mass media. I found ATS again and saw a very positive change in the Threads of Today. So I lurked for months on end reading posts I had valuable insight on, but decided not to bother. Which brings us to here and now
Nice to meet you all.

Fresh and typically obscure perpectives foster creative thought in others that are otherwise brain-locked. I always appreciate the help. Please be unafraid to help no matter how off-beat you think your thoughts might be.

hi nonapplicable,

when filling out forms, my favorite answer is n/a since i don't have an opinion on many subjets.

I lurked on and off for about 3 years. Early last year I started reading this site like it was the morning paper until one day I saw a post so bogus I could no longer resist.
