Good to Meet You!

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by CottageIndustrialist, Jun 27, 2017.

  1. Hey Friends - I'm looking forward to getting to know you. Gotta say though that - right now - don't know my hind end from a hole in the ground as far as interacting on the site goes. Gotta figure out where to look , how to look... All kinds of questions in my mind such as "What's a thread?", "Is starting a thread the way to get people's perspective on this or that question?", etc. Probably not.

    Like you, I'm interested in pondering, planning, and prepping. On the pondering side, my interests run along the lines of the nature of economics and social structure in a post-petroleum era. I think (but don't know) that life in the future will be more like it was in 30,000 BC than it was in 1820.

    Another area of interest is working out a commitment in my local community - after a reset - to prevent ourselves from being overrun by the same B.S. parasites and vampires that are gorging themselves on us now. It's a small finite Rock we're riding on. It's getting crowded and stuff we "need" is getting scare. I get that. But that isn't our biggest problem, IMO. Our real problems are i). the parasites and vampires whose only contribution to our world is counterfieting and loaning money, and ii). those among us who do nothing but push electrons back and forth to one another along internet wires and get paid for it (I'm thinking mostly about bureaucrats here). (i) is theft and (ii) is just damn useless. I don't want to see either group get a foothold in my village after a reset.

  4. Thanks @Motomom34. I don't know why, but the term "thread" intimidates the snot out of me. I'm Fred Flintstone groping my way around a Jetson world at the moment. Will do some research this evening.

    Here you go, man. Start here: Did You Know? Forum Tips and Tricks (New) | Survival Monkey Forums
    And check this out also: Resource - Site Rules | Code of Conduct | Survival Monkey Forums

    Take your time, post when you feel ready. I would like to see some of your work. :)
    Nobody is ever going to razz you for posting...unless it's pornographic or something like that. I don't mind moving threads around if I have to, either.
  6. You're a good dude, Brokor. Your response really helps me feel at ease. I'm looking forward to picking your brain, hearing your thoughts, etc.

    Every reply thus far has been a MODERATOR or site STAFF of some sort....
    Notice how they bait you with assurances of "friendliness" and "help"....
    They are CLEARLY watching your every move...

    The most interesting people on this site aren't friendly or inclusive at all.

    You have been warned.
