And you thought it might be another rant right?
Nope. Just a musing as to why I'm here and what keeps me here. For me, it's many things actually.
When I was young I ignored the news because I always thought that if something important enough were to happen that I needed to know, I would find out
soon enough. How naive.
Now I have a thirst to know what is happening around the globe because I've come to realize that it's my World and everything that happens has some
effect on my life whether I know it or not. Maybe not at the moment but in the future.
So why ATS?
Quite simply because I can trust the news here more than most other sources. It comes from real people with a desire to share, vent, argue, discuss
etc. And then we have a lot of experts on certain subjects as well. Have a question? Just ask.
I also have a need to feed my ADD and ATS satisfies that to no end...
With something new popping up on the pages every few minutes I can click,
click, click,click, click, click...all damn day!
and then we ....oooh....looka da squirrel!
The best part? Look at the front page sometime. We got Sasquatch, UFO's, Govt. Corruption, Police Brutality, Art, Music, Religion, Recipes, Animals,
Pets (Needs a Forum BTW) and so much more.
We have people from every corner of the globe so we get to experience different views that we might never have otherwise.
I have made a few friends and probably a few more enemies.
But even that's ok.
And then there is the certainty that when the SHTF in a major way I'll know about within minutes because that's what we do...we sound the alarm for
all to hear. Ok, some alarms are not needed but you get the picture. Where else will you know within minutes that it's time to grab the BOB and get
But best of all....When I feel like I'm the only one thinking and feeling that the World is seriously coming to a boiling point and I try to talk to
friends or family with them looking at me as if I'm ready for the rubber room...I come here and know I'm not the only one...we're all nuts!
Yeah I get frustrated sometimes with policies, T&C etc but all in all, it's still better than not being here at all.
So that's me...What the hell are you doing here?
Just a lazy Sunday afternoon Non-Rant for a change...
