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!

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! But 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"...!
