Hello ATS, I've been lurking around for quite a while and I decided it was about time I joined the forum. I came across this site while researching Lake Vostok since this forum seemed to be ahead of the mainstream coverage, I stuck around after browsing all the other topics. I'm very open minded, yet at the same time sort of cynical/skeptical so I don't know how that works, but that's me. I appreciate what you guys do here, the free exchange of ideas is very important no matter how out there the topic may be. Hopefully I'll find my niche in this forum, until then I'll still kind of be lurking around to find my place. Thank you for your time.

Be sure to try out our Ask ATS with the "search words" of your choice. I'm sure you will find many threads to pick from to add your thoughts and opinions too. We encourage everyone to please contribute to existing threads rather than start a new one. This will also help guarantee that your thread won't end up as a duplicate located elsewhere. The ATS Search feature is your friend!

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, so with that said...
Here's a few thoughts before getting onto any one of the 1000's of topical rides at Above Top Secret, also known as ATS, the world's largest Civil & Unique Discussion Community.

*** Please be sure to be at least this tall to get on any of the rides, (Johnny stretches his arm outward), and act like an 'civil' adult. This will save you a lot of future stress, frustration and possible action by one of your friendly neighborhood Mods!

*** Please remember that some members are very passionate and vocal depending on what ride your all on. You should be mentally fit, stable and have a strong stomach for theories, conjecture, research and evidence presented that may be contrary to your own.

*** Please be "open-minded" enough to understand that sometimes the ride isn't always what you might think or expect. Be aware you also might end up learning something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride.

*** Please note that at times the ride gets overly-heated and "it's strongly suggested" to get off the ride to regroup one's thoughts before continuing. This will also help guarantee that the ride will move forward without getting derailed or explode into a fiery trashbin.

*** Please have fun! Be aware if you act in an uncivil-like manner, use profanity, intentionally spread a hoax and/or get verbally abusive, you will be removed off the ride by a Moderator. This is for your safety, & also for those both young and old on the ride with you.

So buckle up, keep your arms within the ride's comfort zone, have fun and "Deny Ignorance"...!

Oh great, another noob.

Well, welcome to ATS.

Better tow the party line or you'll be flamed.

None of that open minded crap around here.

This country is on its way back to a little law and order.

Enjoy the site and glad to see you maintain an open mind, otherwise you might as well go somewhere else.

GrokkinAintEasy, welcome to ATS enjoy your stay. I am also a Lake Vostok fan and cannot wait to see what was found beneath that dark sediment down there (if its not too sensitive to share)
. See you in the boards

Greetings member-initiate GrokkinAintEasy:

Welcome to ATS, the absolute best learning experience on the Internet.

Great avatar, it kinda reminds us of this Don Johnson classic!

A Boy and His Dog Trailer

Welcome to the next step on your path to realizing your personal best by experiencing ATS. Remember, grasshopper-san, one does not try ATS,
ATS tries one.

At all times, one might remember that “stuff happens” in the bright lights of free association and keyboard regurgitation and your posts will live for an eternity, or at least until 3/31/2012 when Anonymous “tests the Internet.”

One of the best features of Above Top Secret is the ability to share moving, informative videos with your fellow members, some for just fun, some for imparting a message of urgent appeal, such as this one we share as an eye-opener into the real world we all share on post-Fukushima planet Earth.

Perhaps you are you an activist? Here’s a quick way to become involved here on ATS and provide a service to your local community. Please consider this an invitation to join an interesting community within a community and we welcome your posts to any of our signature threads.

Maybe you can figure out a way to get a radiation reading where you live and share it with us - that just might draw your attention to perhaps the mother of all conspiracies - the fallacy of safe, secure, immutable, long-term nuclear power radioactive waste disposal!

The quintessential mods may drop in time-to-time and drop cookies as to where your personal "goodie bag" may be hidden on the cavernous shelves of ATS Warehouse 13.

It's a great hunt, some even have alluded the quest is never to be fulfilled (but that's another thread), so hang on to your hat and fasten your seat belt, for it can be a helluva ride-sharing experience and we love every minute of it.

Welcome aboard.

Peace Love Light
