Hello ATS!

As you can see on the left, my name is BluFenix. I've been looking around ATS for the better part of two years now, and I've finally made the "big leap" so to speak, and registered on the forums. I'm not normally the "introductory" post kind of guy, but I felt like ATS is a little different than most forums I register for (I rarely frequent forums anymore, since they usually devolve pretty easily into spam and troll fests).

A little bit about myself. I'm currently a graduate student in Computational Chemistry, though I trained as an Analytical / Physical chemist as an undergraduate. I love mathematics, logic, and just plain thought; looking critically at a problem and trying to solve it. I think that's what allowed to gravitate toward chemistry. Of the natural sciences, I feel that chemistry is the most applied, but also one of the most complex. Most real systems are chemical in nature at some level, and chemistry is all over the world.

But enough science lessons. In my spare time, I love to hang out with my four month old daughter and my wife of (almost) three years. When those two go to sleep, I enjoy some quality video game time, although much less than when I was married / homeowner / father. My favorite game to play at the moment is League of Legends, although I am currently waiting for Diablo 3, my new favorite obsession

As far as conspiracies go, , I mostly enjoy reading about UFOs / Extraterrestrial beings, although prophecy and the supernatural has always piqued my interests too. I mostly watch the videos and view the pictures here on ATS, and rarely have much to contribute in the way of new content. As a scientist, I'm always trying to approach things with a critical eye and to think openly about things. I don't have a motivation for being interested in these topics (ie I want to believe aliens exist or think I can predict the future), I'm just purely interested in these subjects. Call it a curious itch if you will.

Hope to see all of you on the battlefield of the ATS forums. Thanks for reading my intro post!

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 you're 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, troll, 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"...!
