Hey, how's it going? I've been a member here for a short while, and a lurker for I don't even know how long, but I've never taken the time to make
a proper introduction since I never really saw myself posting much or actually becoming a part of the community, so I'm doing it now. Anyways,
that's the long and short of it, so here's a bit about myself in case you were curious.
I'm 18 (Yes, I'm one of those college kids people complain about
I still find it strange how almost everyone I've seen here seems to be 30+,
though), born and raised in northern CA. The first conspiracy I've ever really considered was the possibility of UFO visitation when I was about
eight or nine (I know, cliché...), and then when I began seriously learning about the government when I was 11 or 12, I actually toyed with the idea
of a "fourth branch of government" resembling the "shadow government" people tend to discuss here on occasion. Admittedly, I didn't really
"wake-up" until a few years ago, after several of my thought-processes and Google searches led me to various conspiracies over the years and I
started to actually consider a few of them plausible, which led me to ATS at one point a year or two ago, which has been my main source of news ever
since. I've only met about three other people in my life that don't buy into the MSM, sadly.
As you may have noticed, I've really only posted in BPN, 2012 Elections, and USPM, but that's mostly out of laziness. I'll probably start branching
out into the other forums sooner or later when I find more time. I like to think I have a decent head on my shoulders, so I'm hoping I'll be able to
contribute a thing or two of value, but don't get your hopes up.
Anyways, looking forward to the discussions. Hopefully we can keep things civil (I've seen things get out of hand quite a few times), see you around!
