Joined 5 years ago from Appalachia. Last activity 5 weeks ago.




I was nicknamed The Budness by one of my peers when I was a private in the U.S. Army in 2002. This was long before the release of Universal’s You, Me, and Dupree in 2006.

Over the next eight and a half years I travelled the world in the service of Uncle Sam. From Iraq to the Orient to the frozen winds of the North Country, I learned that life in this world is mysterious; things often happen that logic cannot explain. This inevitably caused me to ask questions and search for answers.

Over time, my inquest into the mysterious grew from a hobby to a legitimate pursuit. I left the service and entered the university to study history.

The scientific method used by historians is an intricate and fragile model. When used to its full capacity, it denies its own existence; when used sparingly, findings become irrelevant. So, where is the middle ground? Where is the “truth”?

Both of these lie within the quest itself. It is the questions we ask that keep the quest alive. It’s our refusal to accept what “they” say. In a nutshell, it’s all about the ride. We don’t really have a choice in the matter, though. Do we?
