Well....... I've done it, I've joined ATS!

Being a long time reader of a variety of topics i finally decided that maybe my input could be of use to some people.

So Hello To All!!!

Brief bit about me. I'm from the UK. I'm a time served engineer, with a background in metallurgie and general engineering. I now work as a Chemical engineer in the R and D section of a fledgling company hoping to provide environmentally sustainable fuels. We also look into the cleaning of contaminated products. e.g. drill cuttings from rigs, drill pits in land, paper mill pulp waste, etc. As well as looking to break down and recycle waste tyres.

There is a lot more to what I do than this but this is a brief outline.

I am a avid reader and like immerse myself in all topics so I look forwarding to discussing, debating and if the circumstance is right, flaming you all very soon

All the best

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many 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, also known as 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 to 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 that may be contrary to your own.

* 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"...!

You did indeed. Paper mache and St Paul's?

Do you mean Alloy or Metal?

Wouldn't say I have favourites but I do like Stellite.

Amazing alloy that hardly anyone knows about. Would be brilliant to make armour out of if you wanted to be a knight!

As for Metal, well, Cobalts pretty cool.

Edit: BTW 3 Engineers = Tea Break
