Hello AboveTopSecret. I've been lurking for a little while now, probably about six months, occasionally coming here to see some interesting news and interesting discoveries people have made. Since I've been lurking a little more frequently lately, I thought it was about time I signed up. I never realized that the site would look so different when you signed up though. I knew that members saw it a little differently, but not this much.

Anyway, I started researching or looking into all this alternative, secretive, conspiratorial, esoteric, and spiritual stuff back in January of 2011, so I'm at least fairly familiar with all this craziness. I've been interested in this stuff for most of my life however, I just never really started to actively search for it until the beginning of 2011.

It's been an interesting journey since I started all of this, and I look forward to hopefully finding some answers to the seemingly never-ending list of questions there are, which I'm sure ATS will be able to help with in some way. Unfortunately, that never seems to be very easy though, since I've grown to become extremely skeptical of everything. Nevertheless, it's nice to finally sign up and now I'll actually be able to contribute any knowledge or wisdom I've picked up.

See you around everybody.

Hey there and welcome!

The site looks ten times better once your a member doesn't it? lol

Please share some of your interests and skepticism with me, and I'll attempt to throw some of my insights and resources at you

Welcome ... and Enjoy your stay.

That's quite the intro and very similar to where I was back in the day - finding ATS in mid '05 - chocked full of All the sorts of things I'd often wondered about but never actually taken the time to investigate / research further.

Having been in the USAF my search that brought me to ATS was related to the SR-71 .... and , here, 7 years later - I Am, still.

If ever a question or concern, Please don't hesitate to ask.

Hello there and welcome to ATS. I also lurked for a while before joining. I'd say almost 2 years! I was afraid it would put me on some watch list or something...
Then I decided I wanted to converse with other like minded people more than I cared about who saw what I wrote. Anyway, hope you have fun here. I do.

Thanks for the welcoming everybody and thanks for the links JohnnyAnonymous. I'm sure I'll put some of them to use when the situation arises.

Really seems like a good site here, probably one of the best on the internet for topics such as this.
