Man, I have spent over 10-12 hours here this wknd, and can't seem to break away! Granted it is raining, but I realized that some of my other responsibilities and aspiratiopns are being backseated to surfing this site and communing with others.
I was so proud to let the TV go several years ago, but now I am spending just as much time staring at shiny rectangles. At least this is interactive, educational, highly entertaining and commercial free. But, I am thinking about cutting my internet service for the rest of the summer so I can better use my time for a bit. Not that I don't love it here, and the peeps, but woe, my dog is even starting to worry about me, she just brought me the leash!

I just can't help myself it seems...

Peace,
spec

Hello, Speculativeoptimist. My name is AIntellectualRedneck, and I suffer from the same illness. I've caught the ATS bug, I believe. Truth is, though, if I wasn't here, I'd be surfing around youtube for the same thing. At least there are actual discussions here instead of just endless flamewars of whether Justin Bieber is gay or not.

Hey, I'm AzureSky, I work 9 hours a day, in which ATS is open in a tab. When i'm not working, ATS is open in a tab in my browser.

I also have a live RSS feed to my phone. And like to sit on the john and read from said RSS feed.

Ya know, they have programs for that. I have heard that too much of anything is never good, but I don't personally believe that is true in all cases. You could have way worse addictions, but if you spend that much time here I am sure it has screwed you up in one way or another, lol

Oh probably, Hahaha, I'm not obsessed with it, its just open, and when something piques my interest, i read it

In a good way, while it has certainly chased away some charlatans and ignorance I once supported, the negative side is stealing away precious time. I keep thinking "moderation, moderation," but here I am while the grass grows and needs cutting.

Awesome way to put it! I'll have to mention that to my mom the next time she starts telling me and my dad to stop being such conspiracy theorists.

I am an ATS addict BECAUSE I am a truth addict.

Although I have to use my own cognition and determine fact from fad and fiction, this is still better than any of the mainstream bought and paid for shill news networks.

I stand at attention and salute this thread!

:scratching at neck and chest constantly:

I can quit ATS whenever I want to! I just...don't want to right now!

There are people on worse sites who surf much more than I do!
