    Hello everyone.
    My name is JokerX, I have always loved tough ideas and questions to get lost in thought with and because of this I have found a weird love with all things politics. I started to dedicate myself to self improvement since I was unhappy with where I was or fearful that the person I used to be was not capable of accomplishing something that would bring me happiness. I went through some great physical transformation but being better in faith and mind/intelligence seems to always be connected to what faith/political views you hold so I have been dedicating myself to politics to understand...well pretty much how people live life and what variable's affect us.
    So I'm here to TEST my beliefs and values since I believe the only way to know if you are following a correct path is to put those beliefs in harms way and see which hold and which fall so I can get rid of the beliefs that are not correct and find the ones that are.

    Any advice about how to conduct myself to accomplish the goals I stated above is not just welcome but requested, Thank You if you decided to take the time to read this post.

    Be yourself.
    Don't share too much of your personal life/beliefs.
    Grow thick skin.
    Avoid the basement for awhile (first get some posts under yer belt).
    Trust NOBODY.
    Read the damn rules. Three times.
    Don't whine.
    Don't be a doormat.

    Welcome to USMB.

    I think you might have said too much already in your OP. Physical changes? Red flag.
    Testing the new you? Red flag.

    Don't say too much. Keep your personal life personal. Here, you will be used as a chew toy.

    Basement consists of the Flame Zone, Bad Lands, Rubber Room. Avoid it for awhile. Then again, you can pretty much get an idea of this place just by reading it. Try not to post. They eat newcomers down there.

    With that said...the opposite is in The Lounge. Nice folks.

    Wander. Read. Lots of forums, lots of topics.

    Finally, give the place a chance. If you don't like it after a week or two..then .......

    If he posts in the Flame Zone he'll grow a thick skin and won't have to read the rules. It's PERFECT!!! :thup:
