Hello ATS, I've been lurking around for quite a while and I decided it was about time I joined the forum. I came across this site while researching
Lake Vostok since this forum seemed to be ahead of the mainstream coverage, I stuck around after browsing all the other topics. I'm very open
minded, yet at the same time sort of cynical/skeptical so I don't know how that works, but that's me. I appreciate what you guys do here, the free
exchange of ideas is very important no matter how out there the topic may be. Hopefully I'll find my niche in this forum, until then I'll still
kind of be lurking around to find my place. Thank you for your time.

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 be sure to be at least this tall to get on any of the rides,
(Johnny stretches his arm outward), and act like an 'civil' adult. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one
of your friendly neighborhood Mods!
*** 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 think or expect. Be aware you also might end up learning something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the
*** 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! Be aware if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use
profanity, intentionally spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is for your safety, & 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"...!

there (if its not too sensitive to share) . See you in the boards

Welcome to the next step on your path to realizing your personal best by experiencing ATS. Remember, grasshopper-san, one does not try ATS,
ATS tries one.
At all times, one might remember that “stuff happens” in the bright lights of free association and keyboard regurgitation and your posts will live
for an eternity, or at least until 3/31/2012 when Anonymous “tests the Internet.”
One of the best features of Above Top Secret is the ability to share moving, informative videos with your fellow members, some for just fun,
some for imparting a message of urgent appeal, such as this one we share as an eye-opener into the real world we all share on post-Fukushima planet
Perhaps you are you an activist? Here’s a quick way to become involved here on ATS and provide a service to your local community.

Maybe you can figure out a way to get a radiation reading where you live and share it with us - that just might draw your attention to perhaps the
mother of all conspiracies - the fallacy of safe, secure, immutable, long-term nuclear power radioactive waste disposal!
The quintessential mods may drop in time-to-time and drop cookies as to where your personal "goodie bag" may be hidden on the cavernous shelves of
ATS Warehouse 13.
It's a great hunt, some even have alluded the quest is never to be fulfilled (but that's another thread), so hang on to your hat and fasten your
seat belt, for it can be a helluva ride-sharing experience and we love every minute of it.
Peace Love Light
