Hi everybody,

I've been visiting this site since my very early teens, always with a curious attitude towards what people have to say in regards to events that are not portrayed properly in the media. My curiosity started with the events of 9/11, however being so young you don't fully realise you have a voice at that age, you feel very menial in contrast to revelations that governments could attack their own infrastructures, big wealthy banking families quite possibly rule the world, extraterrestrials could potentially have fiddled with our DNA etc etc.

It was this free thinking that very much induced me into a reclusive bubble for the rest of my teenage years in fear of my friends and family mocking my interests on such topics, more importantly however i felt i understood the importance that not everybody in the world was as free thinking as i would hope them to be - there was this alarming vast majority of peers that were more interested in getting drunk on a weekend and watching TV programs such as Jeremy Kyle and Geordie Shore. This realisation really tested my patience in humanity, so much to a point that i felt i could only comfortably communicate with other like-minded people.

If it wasn't for stumbling across ATS and seeing such a busy hive of minds questioning everything, i would have felt very alone with my thoughts growing up, so thank you. I feel like i owe this website something, hence why i am joining with the intention of contributing my perspective where it counts.

A little about me now - I am 23, i have recently graduated with a degree in Graphic Design, i've moved out of my parents house and got full time employment within the sign writing and vehicle graphics industry. In my spare time i like to draw my own tattoos and then have somebody else scratch them into me, watch films, surf these forums and smoke the fine herb responsibly and constructively.

If i could have one truth shown to be before i departed this life it would be the truth of extraterrestrial life, i'd honestly give my left testicle to be abducted.

Hope that was something along the lines of what is expected in a new members introduction, i really look forward to having the chance to debate and discuss things with each and every one of you!

Kind Regards.

Nice intro Merces !!



my friends and family mocking my interests on such topics


I know. Now when I get the "sooooo....still spending time on A....T....S.....???" with an abrasive smile, I no longer respond.

I just go "Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh....beh.....beh....." in my mind, smile back and walk away.


Welcome to ATS !!

Have fun & enjoy !

Thanks guys, Indigent - 9/11 still remains a current interest for me however it was what opened up all the doors to everything else going on in the world, really i love dabbling in as much as i can from Hitler's 'Die Glocke' to Tesla's works on free energy! Thank you for the flag


I feel your pain too SonoftheSun, hah, let's just hope they too one day endure an inquisitive mind which changes how they view the whole world, it seems you can only really appreciate somebody thinking outside of the box when you too have had an opportunity to do so, i could agree with those that try to poke fun at you - some peoples thoughts on here are absolutely bizarre don't get me wrong! however i respect each and every effort to execute a 'what if' scenario, people need to embrace this way of thinking instead of ridiculing those that attempt to.

May i also apologise in advance if i ever rustle anybodies feathers up the wrong way, i'm only just stepping into the ATS playground so to speak and it may take a while for me to get a general feel of how to engage with certain members

Thank you Gortex, each to their own indeed, it is just a painful reality that people are willing to tune into those types of programs! Maybe it makes people feel better about their own lives
it's okay with me in that respect i guess!

Great quote in your signature.

Ooh! Cool!
There's an art forum on BTS (Below Top Secret) and you also might like to check out the avatar creations thread on BTS - they're always happy to meet fellow artists!

See you soon then!

From your intro I believe a Welcome Home is in order! You sound exactly like most of us here. Oh and there are a few bullies on this playground,but you sound like you will be fine.

If you go down the rabbit hole far enough you come out on the other side. Welcome, and hopefully you won't miss the ads, or at least less ads, than when you looked at the site. Share with us things you know that you think we would enjoy knowing, and ask any questions and hopefully people here may have the answers. Enjoy!

Thanks guys and girls, and for the guidance Wrabbit - i've had a good read over the T&C's (No honestly i did!) the F.A.Q & already managed to crack avatars.

I do remember a time when there hardly were any ads yes
although at the time i was using a desktop pc which was already rife with viruses and pop-ups, so today's ads have nothing on the annoyance i used to regularly endure!

lol.. I'm glad you've already had a good read over everything. I think the most valuable link I give in my standard welcome is the FAQs link. It covers such a wide range of things for folks, it ought to hit on most things which a new person to posting may wonder about.

It's nice to have a new addition to the discussions!

Welcome.

If only more young people would be so thoughtfull as you were when you discovered ATS. Maybe the ATS board of directors will consider a nationwide advertisement which will carry the message of hope for mankind. Would it not be wonderful if ATS will become a subject in school for eightgraders? ATS will make the innocent aware of new posibillities, an other Earth, the only truth.

This site will encourage people free-thinking, to be creative, to investigate, how to open your mind without your brain falling out, proper use of the english language, how to debate and how to respectfully interact with a national and international audiance ...just to name a few vantages which will contribute in becoming an illuminated citizen in the long awaited new world order.

Uhmm...err...I think I over did it somewhat.. Now don't be scared, this is just the begining.

Anyways... welcome

Oh My God! A Bacon Cake! You are a genius! I always thought that Lewis Caroll was just snubbed by some great girl and gave the "queen of hearts" a bad name. You rock!

And Welcome to the family! As a new person too, I will tell you, it seems intimidating, but that is just challenging you to think harder. Debate is not personal. The people here are very kind and helpful to an extreme. You are in good company.
