It's been quite a while since I first stumbled upon this site, in fact, I'm not even sure what I was searching for that led me here. All I know is that once I found this place, I kept coming back and spending hours in the forums and I've enjoyed it enough that I feel it is finally time to become a member and contribute what I can to the site. One of the biggest things that kept me coming back and finally become a member is not only are there a huge and wide variety of topics being discussed that I am interested in, but the intelligence of the users is above the norm. While not everyone is perfect, it is nice to find a community where the majority is mature and intelligent.

Just to tell you a little about myself, I'm 30 years old and from the Pittsburgh area. There are many things that I find interesting and a lot of it is being discussed on this website. Science, geology, the universe, history, ancient civilizations, life (both on our planet and other planets), strange and mysterious phenomenon, and obviously video games, haha. That's just a few, I'm interested in a lot of different subjects.

Anyway, that's just a little bit about me. It's nice to meet everyone and I'll see you in the forums!

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, 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 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 on. Before getting on a ride, you should be mentally fit, emotionally 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. At times, you may learn something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride, this is a natural and normal phenomena.

*** 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"...!
