It's A Bit Late But...

I'm shy by nature (I hide it well), which is why I haven't made an intro thread yet.

Anyway, lately I've been drawn in to a few threads on gun control and politics (which on the whole, I don't care for) so I feel the need to clarify my position.

I'm a genetic biologist from Liverpool, UK.

I have an ongoing personal relationship with mental health (not my own) in a variety of ways, and I dislike it when people use mental health as a weapon.

I try to remain factual and impartial in all my debates, but I admit that I have an Achilles heel when it comes to mental health and have made a few posts here already where I have let emotions cloud my judgement.

The reason I joined ATS was, on the whole, to tell people to eat more fruit and explain to people how their body works.

I am a blunt person, I say what I see, sometimes that's offensive, which is unfortunate. I don't like offending people - I am actually a nice person, I always do my best to help people in their lives.

So, hi.

Edit: on a personal level, I enjoy reading about atlantis (which is why I originally came here several years ago) and I write paranormal creepypastas (I enjoy being scared) and I have a broken L key on one of my computers, so please excuse any hurried typos involving L.

Welcome to ATS!

I am interested in paranormal and meditation and have had my fair share of experiences. I practice Falun Dafa Qi Gong, which is voluntary and free of charge, and regularly practice meditation to improve my mind and body according to the principle of Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance in daily life.

I try to take control over myself and I have learned I can not control others
.. Btw, I am an engineering physicist but does not work in that sector.

Anyway, I am sure you have loads of good stuff to share with us in here so welcome again and good luck in the future!

PS: The revolutionary book about human life and how to improve as a human being; Zhuan Falun ; Some general information about exercises etc to download: Falun Dafa Qi Gong

Thanks everyone, I'd reply to each of you individually, but I'm already running out of positive smileys so I wouldn't know what to say
