Hello ATS.

I typed up a long introduction but when tried to make it "fancy", it was all deleted so here is a quick read about me.

I've been floating around ATS for the past 3 or 4 years but feel I have been "awake" for the past 10.

I am 26(my bday is tmw so I'll just lie today for the sake of), a male and I live in the US of A.

I am not proud of the way things are.

As a human being, I have Bipolar, mild schizophrenia(not bad enough to act in the physical sense).

I have over time, developed a kind of agoraphobia/ anti-social disorder..

I have always been told I was "unique". I never understood what that meant considering I was just being that goofy silly kid who always made people laugh.

But then I really sat down and thought about it. I would always share my ideas and when discussions would happen, I'd always be the serious one and I'd always be met with gibberish in serious conversations that I would initiate.

I knew I was different but how? Then I realized it. in High School, I was given detention and kicked out of school for not standing up for the pledge of allegience. I have nothing against the people who served in our wars. I commend them, thank them even. I just disagree with war in general. In certain situations, it cant be helped and I can understand that as well. But WHY would I get punished for not following the norm? I disliked that.

So there the journey started to learn more about this country, the world and how things work. Get away from the history books of school and actually go out and talk to people. Learn things on my own.

I was disappointed when I learned that people like me, "in the real world" get ridiculed and laughed at.

It's like seeing that homeless guy sitting on the sidewalk with a sign that says, "will share future secrets for food"

we look at that bum and think.. "man that guy is obviously crazy, crazy enough to come up with that sign"

I look at that bum and think.. "if he actually came from the future and had all this information, and he TRIED to tell someone and THEY dismissed him as being crazy, that's exactly what would happen. No one would believe him."

Granted, I might not believe that he IS from the future, but I certainly wouldn't dismiss it.

I ranted long enough.. Anything else you guys would like to know about me, I'd gladly be more than open with you.

Embrace me ATS. Embrace me as the interwebs as we know it will be transformed before our eyes.

I have read your post. And I honestly feel like I am meeting a brother I have known for a long while. Everything you put, I have been there, and it's almost like I typed it.

Welcome, and I hope we have a chance to exchange ideas. In fact, you could have a look right now, if you aren't too busy. Just click on my username and go from there.

Or you could ignore me entirely, just like that bum.


Either way, ATS welcomes you.

-embrace-

Thank you for your warm and kind words. Partly the reason I stayed around this site was that the topics discussed around here are along the same kinds of topics I would discuss when I was 15-16. To my surprise, no one else knew nor wanted to talk about what I wanted lol. So to be around this many people who -at least- have the same thinking patterns(although the means of deciphering said info may be different) and just know NOT to be spoon fed.

Thank you very much. The ride that ATS has given me has been amazing so far. I feel like I have been surfing outside on a passenger train this whole way and now it's time to come inside, have a cup of coffee(or whatever your vice) and just relax and chat.

Well I am off to go plan a 2 person bday party for myself and my crazy lady friend.

I shall return later to drown myself in outside thinking.

I apologize if this falls under the "spam" posts.

Welcome ConstantlyThinking to a Disney-like Park for Conspiracy Theorist...!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret (ATS), the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.


* Please check out those links posted by the Moderator above before getting on one of the rides. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

* Please be sure that you act like an 'civil' adult and are at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward).

* Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride your all on. You should be mentally fit, stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented.

* Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might expect. Be aware you also might end up learning something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride.

* Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

* Please have fun! But be aware that if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, intentially spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is not only for your safety, but also for those both young and old on the ride with you.


So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!
