[[UsefulNotes/{{Israel}} Israeli]] BlueAndOrangeMorality [[UsefulNotes/{{Agnosticism}} Agnostic]] GrammarNazi NotSoStoic [[Franchise/LyricalNanoha Nanoha fan]].


* If the backlog[[labelnote:*]] Read: my first post here, in ''[=AGoG=]'''s signup thread, [[/labelnote]] is to be believed, I was linked to ThisVeryWiki (from VideoGame/BattleForWesnoth's forums, quite possibly [[http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=29322&p=420028&hilit=nightmare+fuel#p420028 from this post]] ) sometime in November 2010 and became Known shortly afterwards.
* I got that nickname from the rather insignificant Franchise/YuGiOh card ''[[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Des_Dendle Des Dendle]]''.
* It is usually shortened to 'desden', or 'des'. The culprits include [[@/GeekCodeRed GCR]], @/KiriAme, @/MrAHR, [[@/TestYourMight TYM]], [[@/{{Fusionman}} Fuse]] and practically everybody else.
* I am also called:
** [=SokhenEphes=][[note]] Hebrew for 'Agent Zero' [[/note]], in Website/YouTube.
** desdendelle, in [[FanFictionNet Fanfiction.net]].
** sur.nhm, in VideoGame/BattleForWesnoth's forums.
** desdendelle, in [[http://www.duelingnetwork.com/ Duelling Network]] (that's an online Franchise/YuGiOh client, in case you were wondering).
** Dizzle, by @/WanderlustWarrior.
* I am:
** Male.
** A soldier in [[UsefulNotes/IsraelisWithInfraredMissiles the IDF's C4I Corps]].
** A philosopher, sort of. I subscribe to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seneca_the_Younger Seneca's]] variant of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoicism Stoic]] school of thought, with some [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ren%C3%A9_Descartes Cartesian]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epistemology Epistemology]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immanuel_Kant Kantian imperatives]] thrown in.
** An avid reader, both of silly things (that are SeriousBusiness nonetheless) such as ScienceFiction and {{Fantasy}} and of serious things such as poetry, philosophy, science and contemplative literature.
** A drinker of good tea. Especially Earl Grey.
** The Court Alchemist and Minister of Science to [[@/{{deathpigeon}} Depy]]'s court.
* I had a tendency to vandalise people's pages with quotes; go ahead, sue me. I also had a tendency to sign said vandalisations with names of ships from Literature/TheCulture. For example, the ''Irregular Apocalypse'', the ''You'll Clean That Up Before You Leave'', et cetera.
* I was shipped multiple times:
** Pieguy of the [[WebOriginal/ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum PPC]] [[http://disc.yourwebapps.com/discussion.cgi?disc=199610;article=224902;title=PPC%20Posting%20Board shipped]] me and [=ShatteredSanity=] of the same for the 2012 annual PPC Board Shipfest.
** @/HimochiIsAwesome of the same [[http://disc.yourwebapps.com/discussion.cgi?disc=199610;article=225046;title=PPC%20Posting%20Board shipped]] me and [=AnnaBee=] (of the same) for the same Shipfest. Most of the things she noted are quite true.
** Phobos of the same [[http://disc.yourwebapps.com/discussion.cgi?disc=199610;article=239175;title=PPC%20Posting%20Board shipped me with Makari]] for the 2013 annual PPC Board Shipfest, also featuring Sergio Turbo, Tray-Gnome, Ivan the Not-so-Terrible, and doctorlit.
** @/HerrWozzeck [[http://disc.yourwebapps.com/discussion.cgi?disc=199610;article=239187;title=PPC%20Posting%20Board shipped]] me with doctorlit for the 2013 shipfest.
** hermione of vulcan [[http://disc.yourwebapps.com/discussion.cgi?disc=199610;article=239184;title=PPC%20Posting%20Board shipped]] me, Neshomeh, and tea for the 2013 shipfest.
** Lily Winterwood [[http://disc.yourwebapps.com/discussion.cgi?disc=199610;article=255181;title=PPC%20Posting%20Board shipped]] me with [=DawnFire=] for the 2014 shipfest.
** [=DawnFire=] [[http://disc.yourwebapps.com/discussion.cgi?disc=199610;article=255200;title=PPC%20Posting%20Board shipped]] me with tea for the 2014 shipfest. Yes, tea, the beverage. I like tea that much.
** [=DawnFire=] also [[http://disc.yourwebapps.com/discussion.cgi?disc=199610;article=255191;title=PPC%20Posting%20Board revenge-shipped]] with Lily Winterwood for the 2014 shipfest.

[[folder:This Troper dislikes the following things]]

* {{Obstructive Bureaucrat}}s.
* Vandalism-only Troper pages, as [[@/TestYourMight TYM]] has observed.
* EveryoneIsJesusInPurgatory (excessive symbolism counts, too).

* [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment The IDF's bureaucracy]].

[[folder:Tropes that that guy, desdendelle, thinks he's an example of]]
* [[UsefulNotes/{{Agnosticism}} Agnostic]]: of the 'weak agnostic atheist' variation. It basically means the following:
# I don't know whether God(s) exist, or not.
# I tend to think[[note]] and assume, due to my philosophy[[/note]] that no such being exists.
# I think that it is possible to know whether God(s) exist, unless it's proven otherwise.
* [[CharacterAlignment Alignment Tropes]]: TrueNeutral with heavy shades of LawfulGood.
* AltumVidetur: Oh so very much. Also with English, since it isn't my mother tongue.

%%* AsleepInClass: Happened to me once. Wasn't fun...
%%* {{Berserk Button}}s:
%%** Idiots. Can't stand them.
%%*** Fanatic materialist Monists, because (usually) they understand jack shit about the philosophical implications of what they say.
%%** People mistaking me for a brony. No, I don't watch MLP. I don't think I will.
* BeleagueredBureaucrat: My post is best described as 'moving little pieces of paper around'. And boy are there many of those.
%%* BerserkerTears: Happens.
* BileFascination: That's why I became [[WebOriginal/ProtectorsOfThePlotContinuum PPCer]].
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Kind of given, since my moral code is an odd mix of Stoicism, Kantian imperatives, and Cartesian epistemology. Despite my LawfulGood tendencies.
* {{Bookworm}}: Though less so now, since I'm in the army. Not much time to read there.
* BrilliantButLazy: I am gifted (135+ IQ), but incredibly lazy.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: I can't drink more than half a pint of Guinness, and Saké makes me tipsy.
* CaptainObvious: Obviously (and annoyingly, to my RL friends) enough.
* CatchPhrase:
** [[RealLife RL-only]]: “{{Understatement}}, [Insert-name-here], always understate.”\\
This is also an example of OneLinerNameOneLiner.
** “Poku!”
%%** I tended to use 'Indeed' in a very [[Series/StargateSG1 Teal'c]]-ish manner (so other people tell me, anyway).
%%** I also use multiple variants of '{{Hello}}'.
* CessationOfExistence: I believe in this.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: I kinda tend to miss the obvious sometimes.
* CommunicationsOfficer: Since I'm in the [=C4I=] Corps, it's kinda given.

[[SelfDemonstratingArticle /example]]

** [[DoesNotLikeSpam Does Not Like Coriander]]: Or parsley.
** DrinkOrder: Tea. I'm known as 'that guy that drinks tea' in my branch.
** EverythingsBetterWithBacon
* GlassesPull: {{Subverted|Trope}}. I sometimes take my glasses off before (or after) I speak, but it has no meaning whatsoever.
* GoodCannotComprehendEvil: Sort of; I really can't understand what motivates people to be evil.
* GoodOldWays: Wearing a longcoat, being polite (which is rather rare here in Israel), reading a lot, writing poetry on metre, translating obscure poetry, dealing with philosophy...
* GrammarNazi:
** All hail correct punctuation!
** I really hate [[HowDoIUsedTense tense shifts.]]
* [[HatesEveryoneEqually Hates Every Organised Religion Equally]]: More or less.

* MotorMouth: Sometimes, especially if the subject is complicated [=and/or=] obscure.
* MovieMakingMess: My Cinema movies all ended up as this, unfortunately. In the last one, one filming day was cancelled eleven times, six because of the rain and the rest because of the incompetence of the rest of the team.
* {{Nerd}}
** GeekPhysiques: Of the thin, muscle-less variety.
** ProudToBeANerd: Because I am what am and I don't plan on changing because others don't understand that.
* NinjaEditor: If I spot a typo in my posts, I usually go back and fix it as soon as I see it.
* NonActionGuy: And how. Reading is better than doing stuff!
* NotAMorningPerson: Earliest I'll wake up naturally is circa 1100 hours, and while I do have to wake up early sometimes because army, I still hate it.
%%* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Subverted in the past; while I was a high-school student, I wasn't really ordinary (philosophising, ho!).
* PowerTrio: Apparently, I'm TheKirk to @/{{Bamack1}}'s [[TheSpock Spock]] and @/{{Fusionman}}'s [[TheMcCoy [=McCoy=]]], though since Bamack disappeared, the Trio is pretty much defunct.
* SawStarWarsTwentySevenTimes: I have read ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' something close to ten times.

* ThePhilosopher: Cartesian Stoicism FTW!
* TheSouthpaw: Mostly.

%%* TroperTypes:
%%** Trope Editor
%%** The Advertiser: For ''VideoGame/BattleForWesnoth''.
%%** Trope Browser: Most of the time.

* [[AdjustingYourGlasses Type 2/type 3 Glasses Adjuster.]]
* VerbalTic:
** my SignatureLaugh.
--> '''desdendelle:''' T'hehehehe-
** Also:
--> '''desdendelle:''' Poku!
** I've also a variety of Tics IRL; most of them are a little too embarrassing to be listed here.
--> '''desdendelle:''' Mim-mi-miim.
--> '''desdendelle:''' Meep!
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: Something British, people assure me, and it's so thick that some people (not the same ones) can't really understand me if I speak English.
* WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants: Another bad habit I'm trying to get rid of.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Take my word on it. People tend to think that I'm ten years older than my true age. Happens less and less though, since it's kinda hard to mistake the age of a soldier here in Israel.
