I actually find that I ask myself that question frequently. Just as frequently the answer is not immediately known. So after many years of coming to this site daily, and rarely participating, why did I somehow find myself on the introductions thread? The answer is.....I have no clue! I have nothing profound to post or anything I need to get off my chest, But since I'm here, I'm going to go with it and crack the window just a little. Maybe one day I will realize the purpose of this post......

A little about me (at least how I view myself):

Not sure where to start or what to say so I'll just start rambling. I've been guilty of sleepwalking through life. At various points in my past I have tried to push the limits of my mind and other times enjoyed the
"ignorance is bliss" mentality. I can't say that either choice is better or worse than the other.

Not sure when or how it happened, but one day I woke up and with a desire to seek knowledge or better yet in keeping with the motto of this site "deny ignorance." I'm a little older now and have responsibilities that I didn't have when I was younger. My methods and objectives now are much different than in my younger years, but I believe the core of what I seek is simply truth. Unfortunately truth, like many things we believe in or desire, may just be an illusion.

I could go on and on, but I will spare you all and limit this to hopefully 1 or 2 minutes of reading a small wall of text. While I'm more than skeptical by nature and choose not to divulge everything about myself in public, feel free to ask away. Thanks for the time reading this and all of your contributions to this site that have given me countless hours of entertainment/research/information.

Dear CrawlingKindsnake,

Welcome to the fray. Maybe it is just as important to ask us questions as it is to know the answers. What are you interested, which subjects is what I would like to know.

I’ve stood before that mountain of truth, looked up at its heights and found pebbles at my feet.
You write very nicely. Welcome.

Thank you! I am a fan of so many different kinds of music, but I love blues/rock. I think I began to open to the world through the music of likes of The Doors and Pink Floyd.

I really enjoy many of the forums. I find the conspiracy theory forum intrigues me the most. I still read in the political, science, paranormal/ mysterious subjects forums daily as well. I am an expert at nothing, but find I know little pieces of a lot. My interest shifts quickly so it's hard to pinpoint one particular thing because ask me again tomorrow.......

Hi! Welcome to ATS. They should put a sign on the door that reads, "Enter At Your Own Risk" but for you it's too late.

Glad you're here. Sea ewe around.

Thank you for that compliment! I always have insecurities when I send anything electronically that it will appear ignorant or confusing. The nice thing about the introductions forum is that it's not contentious like many of the forums I tend to visit - maybe that says something about me.

My wife tells me I need to stop researching so much and not always try to disprove everything. Once you begin down that rabbit hole, it sure is a hard climb back out. Thanks for the welcome and I look forward to hopefully contributing more in the future.

Resistance is futile.
