Howdy ATS members,
I am from the United States. I lived in a handful of states throughout my life and have not yet seen any other part of the world except by
photos or video. I started using the internet just before windows came out (when we had to type out the whole address), and I am addicting to finding
and accessing information I am interested in. I have always been a curious person and come from a family line of biologists, so I guess that has
something to do with my strong desire to learn and understand.
I have interest in child development, the life-cycle, education, psychology, neuroscience (basically anything to do with the brain), and so on...I
like to try to figure things out..ok I need to rephrase that...I like to experiment to better understand things. I started experimenting before I
knew how to conduct a proper experiment..."fun times". I had an obsession with studying college texts and other people's dissertations for as long as
I can remember. I am a born resister, just so you know.
Yes, I am a kook... My friends liked to refer to me as the nutty professor. I had a pretty serious head injury in 2002 and I am now more of a
scatterbrain. I immediately lost hearing in one ear, short term memory and I experience what I like to refer as a "misfire", I will get confused and
do things like try to input computer commands in the TV remote control just for a second..I immediately recognize it isn't doing what I want and stop.
I hope this doesn't scare anyone.... I have improved but, it doesn't look like I will ever be the same. I think the most dangerous thing I have done
is express my opinion on a matter (so relax jiggerj, please don't turn me into the gestapo...(joke..no serious '
'). If you catch me having a
"misfire" be cool and let me know OK... I have been pretty good at avoiding a misfire but, if I am in a hurry or got something else on my mind it can
Now that I got that out of the way, I have been reading a lot of stuff in the various forums and wow, some stuff is way over my head and a lot of
stuff just down-right interesting. I wish I discovered this website years ago, I love to read and talk about curious stuff without being censored by
topic. I look forward to meeting many of you in the forums. Peace to you and yours.
