I came upon ATS 13 years ago today. I basically grew up here as my internet home. I was a 23 year old kid when I joined, I'm 36 now.

In 13 years I have learned quite a bit about how to sift through BS, how to comprehend complex topics, how to debate, and I learned the importance of field testing my ideas.

ATS has helped me grow as a person, as a writer, and has deepened my understanding of my fellow humans, certainly the ones here.

Here's to another 13 years.

Congrats!

It appears you have two years of missing time. Did they take you to Zeta Reticuli? Or maybe fairy land?

Please do share your abduction story.

Spoken like a wise young man. Knowledge brings peace and fulfillment. And what a ride it is finding truths in this crazy world!

Personally, it took me over 40 years to come back full circle to the basic truths I was gifted as a child. I pray you have a smoother time of it!

Cheers to your continued journey.

Obviously a time traveller... intriguing.

I learned the importance of never hitting a "send" button until considering what I have written. Not just here.

I probably post/send about 10% of the time and the rest was just notes for thinking.

Have fun.

Congrats man, you joined a few months after I did. The class of 2007-2008 is still the best.

Congrats man.


I always enjoy reading your posts. We may see things differently from time to time, but I know you have true conviction without a cost to honesty... Something we need more of these days.

Cheers

While we haven't always agreed on posts or opinions I would take someone with your conviction over a mindless drone any day so hopefully we all have another 13 years to disagree.

Here's to another 13 years.


Lets hope so!
I remember when you were a grunt and then joined the military.

We have all grown over the years with each other, like it or not.

Damnit! I was very much looking forward to hearing about an encounter starring our cosmic tricksters. Bummer, well I’m glad you didn’t get probed dude. 🍻

Likewise.

I honestly wouldn't have stuck around this long if not for the debates and sometimes outright fights.

I certainly didn't come here to learn how to be an intellectual wuss.
