Hello everyone! Finally got my twentieth post in and figured I'd dive right into my introduction thread. First of all, I would like to thank Mr. Gray and crew for developing and maintaining this great community and hotspot where truth has a chance to flourish. I would also like to pay my respect to all of the members, for without your voices (or rather keystrokes) most alternative news and ideas would remain hidden to me.

I am a 24 year old male, US citizen. I have an unused BS in mechanical engineering, as I prefer to work in trades and services that benefit regular people, plus I like skilled/physical labor. I say it's unused, but really I use it everyday in that it allows me to see things from a broader perspective relative to what I had coming out of high school. I could elaborate on that, but I'll spare you.

I am a huge music fan. I've listened to (and to some extent played) most of the main music genres over my lifetime, but Metal has become my runaway favorite. I have a few years under my belt dabbling in saxophone, drums, and bass, but my instrument of choice is guitar (can't even play sax anymore, it's been so long :lol
. I've also lost the ability, as well as need, to read sheet music...I learn and create songs by ear. I have jammed with a few "bands" locally, but wouldn't consider myself ever being a member of a band. All of my original music is instrumental, usually 2-3 guitar parts and drums. [I would share some samples if I knew a good way to do so. Suggestions are greatly appreciated.]

As with music, sports have also been a big part of my life. Ski racing and golf we're the only two that stood the test of time (though I don't ski race anymore, just recreational skiing now). I've also become a pretty big hockey fan over the last 5+ years...anytime the Bruins are playing you can bet I'm watching.

Well, that's the cliff-notes version of who I am. The only other thing I would add is that I'm addicted to information/knowledge, other people's perspectives, and love to exercise my noggin. This site satisfies that addiction pretty well.
Looking forward to experiencing what the future holds in store for us, and hearing it first on ATS!

Welcome to ATS the first member said it correctly this is addicting but in a good way. I was addicted to it when I was a lurker and then finally decided to join this year. You are a person of many accomplishents and therefore lucky. Look forward to reading your thoughts across the boards, and like you I like having the knowledge that mainstream just doesn't want to give to you. Whether or not its of a conspiritorial nature or they think we're not worth knowing the truth and therefore they are arrogant in the way they just want to give you there own version of the news. Whatever the reason i don't depend on them for my main source of news and information.

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with a bunch of rides, so with that said...

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 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"...!

Welcome to ATS!

Since you are a knowledge seeker I give you an advice here. If you want unique information about secret matters concerning human life, supernormal(inborn) powers, how to become a good person, ancient civilizations etc, please read the book Zhuan Falun in my free signature link below.

The book was sold in 100 million copies during the 1990s before the communists banned it in China...

/Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance is good, Falun Dafa is good
