I've been lurking here for quite some time, but it seems like the " collective voice" which is encouraged, fostered, and vetted here needs strengthening. I believe now more than ever humanity as a whole is beginning to find it's intellectual stride. Thus I have decided I will now add my voice to the choir. PTB be d@mned.
I beg of you all to show kindness and fairness with your criticism.
I challenge you to remain open to, and be acidemically stern with, my contributions as well as my responses.
Above all, I fervently request your collective aid to emotionally, acidemically, philosophically, and spiritually raise our awareness as a WHOLE.
Here's to getting your feet wet! Cheers!

Uh...wet feet in Holland is not a good sign according to history but welcome to you in any case.
I think you arrived just in time, it feels like one minute to midnight on the doomsday clock but perceptions vary.

I hope you enjoy your time here and find much of interest.

See you around.

Thank you for your kind reply and welcome, maybe I should've added a skal for the northern brethren before I joined this sauna!

AboveTopSecret is much like a theme park with many, many rides, 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 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 on. Before getting on a ride, you should be mentally fit, emotionally 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. At times, you may learn something new and 'out-of-the-box' before you get off the ride, this is a natural and normal phenomena.

*** 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"...!

Welcome DTI...

I challenge you to remain open to, and be acidemically stern with, my contributions as well as my responses.

I would ask the same of you, at least in regards to your own posts...though I'm sure you will prove to be a solid member sooner than later...

Enjoy your time here and make sure to watch your 6 and maintain your sense of humor - you're gonna need it.
