Not much to say, I live in Washington State, I'm 54 and I can't stand the TV show Finding Bigfoot lol

Thanks for the warm Welcome :)

Kopji 3rd October 2011 12:19 AM

Welcome all!

All I have to offer is cold homogenized cow's milk in a plastic bottle, and hot blueberry pop-tarts fortified with both natural and artificial ingredients.

amb 3rd October 2011 12:47 AM

mrmagnetoman88 4th October 2011 05:03 AM

Hello everyone, my name is Aran and I go by the username of mrmagnetoman88. First and foremost, I apologize for not introducing myself immediately upon signing up to this forum. My username was inspired by my fascination over the phenomenon of electromagnetic induction. The main reason I've joined this forum is because I really love Science, particularly Physics. I think Science is a truly magnificent tool that is used to pursue the truth about our universe and scenarios that occur within it, debunk myths and establish facts. Apart from Science, I love working out, socializing and watching professional wrestling. I look forward to posting, responding, making friends, establishing a good relationship with them and enriching my knowledge of Science. Thanks!!

I don't think you'll find many here agreeing with you, but welcome.

I'm 29. What relevancy is that out of curiosity?

Pizza, or more accurately, an infinite plane.

Welcome everyone.

minnemouse 4th October 2011 05:29 PM

Hiya all:)

Norwegian gal. Middle aged (yuck!)

Started reading about chemtrails and almost fell of my chair of laughter! Then on the same forum the 9/11 conspiracies showed up. I found these ones almost as entertaining as the chemtrail ones. I work in ATC, and because of that I saw loads of flaws from the so-called "truthers".

In addition I read this guy´s blog that were full of tails of him being harassed by the Norwegian police - they stole his bicycle seat so he couldn´t get to the post office, they "faked" construction in his building to keep him awake.... A plane with a red nose (Norwegian Airlines by the looks of his own "surveillance" photos) was spying on him. The more of this stories I read, the more curious (and full of laughter) I became. So I started to check out debunking sites, that I knew had better ways and a lot better vocabulary - especially ´cause most were English speaking and I am not (and way more partient!!) to tell these folks that they were wrong....dead wrong. And also in some cases - kinda nuts.

Anyways; coming here and reading the post from you guys has thought me a lot - words, expressions and very plausible explanations. Thanks!

Minne.

The Man 4th October 2011 06:00 PM

Welcome minnemouse.

Whenever I start deluding myself into thinking no one could ever believe such nonsense; I take a gander at this site just to see how deep the rabbit hole of delusion can actually go.

It never was . But I didn't want to drink alone, so I thought I would share some of my private stuff.

Lucia088 5th October 2011 11:58 AM

Newbie here. I'm 22 and a primary school teacher. I watched a TV series with James Randi when I was about 5/6 and recently re-watched it... the after much rummaging around (yes, I'm the type of person who uses the word rummaging in conjunction with anything technological), found myself here. So fairly new to the skepticism (though not to actually being skeptic).

Anyway, hello all!

PS - What's up with the goats milk?

It's the Official Drink that we offer to all NewB's So Welcome to the site and drink up :D

Prometheus 5th October 2011 08:21 PM

Goat's milk is delicious and nutritious. Sometimes I'll pour myself two glasses of it and double-fist!

Welcome!

Malfie Henpox 6th October 2011 01:45 AM

Hello. I've been silently stalking you all for years. For reasons unknown to myself I have decided to start posting too. I'm Malfie and a devout Pastafarian. I hope to one day eradicate those IPU heretics.

I'm a Freemason and I run a masonic forum (The Quarry Masonic Forum) where I have criteria of both credibility and civility. I'm proud to be associated with an institution that grew with the Age of Enlightenment and has, behind the rituals which may seem odd to non-masons, the rationalistic philosophy of that age (a large number of its early members were Fellows of the Royal Society).

While my forum is selective and kept on track, I am frustrated that many on-line masonic discussions elsewhere are hijacked by Conspiracy Theorists, some of whom are masons and should know better.

I look forward to your help in addressing some of their often bizzare theories and hope I can modestly contribute to discussions here.

Yours truly, Philip Carter

Hi Tamrin,

Firstly, I believe that LightinDarkness is a Freemason who has played an important role in educating people her about Freemasonry.

Secondly, I was in the Hunter Valley the weekend before last for my niece's wedding. We stayed at the Crowne Plaza. A lovely place.

And welcome.

Pah! Heathen! Her Holy horn couldn't penetrate my noodly vest of righteousness! His loving appendages will protect me, always.

I propose we drop both in boiling water to decide which is the most delicious.

Yeah, like we'd get a poster from "Hong Kong" on these boards! Sure.


Seriously - is it the water or something? You waded right into the AK threads while I'm over in Forum Community trying to draw some of them out of their tree fort and into the rest of the forums. I agree with much you said in The Thread From Hell.

Where in HK?

Delicious? Delicious? The IPU poops rainbows! And how are you proposing to drop Her in boiling water when she's invisible? Good luck finding Her.

Everyone knows the FSM can see invisible things. It was He who first decreed she was pink. Probably. No, wait... Yes. He just confirmed that it was definitely Him who told us she was pink. But He says not to worry about it because she doesn't even exist.

I live in isolation on Lamma! How about you?

I'm in Kowloon - near the Olympic MTR (I assume they'll eventually call this neighborhood "Olympic". We've got the MTR station, three "Olympian" shopping centers, and no one can even remember what it was called before, now.) Moved out here from Mid-Levels then Wanchai when the son came along (my avatar - Marcello).

I'd love to live on Lamma - but I hate commuting and I put in ridiculous hours at work, so for me it would be gruesome. (I'm on one of those lah-di-dah expat contracts so don't have to worry that the rent would pay off the debt of several small banana republics - the company pays it.)

Welcome aboard. We ever-so-rarely get a forumite passing through town and I think we have a couple of other members here, but they're very infrequent posters. I've always surmised that it's not the paucity of skeptics in Hong Kong nor even the prevalence of Woo,... it's that we're all too busy screwing each other out of money to be arsed with anything else.

By the way, I'm an American. I just affect certain colonialisms so that I can get away with attrocious spelling.

Malfie Henpox 6th October 2011 07:42 AM

I'm a single, childless, godless Brit :)

Lamma is great but the commute can be a real pain. However, it looks like i may be moving to California soon. I'm hoping not until next year, but possibly as soon as next month!
