Mom was reading Mother Earth News before it was glossy and fed us Yogurt while my grandmother gave me a book on Ancient Astronauts and her and I watched sci-fi together. But my mother worked for the county prosecutor’s office so I had a realistic view of the courts / politics / police from a young age.

I had a crazy neighbor who was obsessed with the Trilateral commission and something about Nixon, the Catholic Church, the commies and the NWO. He was entertaining to listen to but even at 10 I had a skeptic’s ear. But I listened.

Ancient alien stuff grabbed me as well as some new age stuff from around 11-14 but then I got past it. When X-Files came out 10 years later, I was like, “oh god this stuff again?” but then I realized it was new to younger people.

I was 21, coaxing my computer to make MODs, writing in Turbo Pascal and hanging around chat rooms, BBS’, Usenet and …. well… actually mostly the same stuff I do today. A life well lived so far.

I avoided X-Files for years because it was conspiracies I’d already read about in the early-mid 80s as a young teenager. But in the late 90s, I did a massive catch up and watched a whole bunch of them as the old ones started going on repeat. Then I was hooked.

I trust professionals who are authorities. But they’re hard to find.
