Tropers: Geoduck
A geoduck is a kind of large clam found on (or rather under) the beaches of the Pacific Northwest. It's pronounced "gooey-duck".

This particular Geoduck suspects he is an ancient fossil compared to most Tropers, but hey, there's a bit of life left in the old clam. A lot of the stuff listed below is for my personal record-keeping purposes, but hey, enjoy it if you can!

He's been adding examples from these, along with Robert Asprin's Myth Adventures novels, the novel Warday, and the various Tremors movies. And of course, the seminal computer game NetHack; he enjoys this one to the point that he created an alternate Tile Set for it. Among those who use such things, it has been fairly well received.

Semi-currently on TV, he enjoys Doctor Who and its various spin-offs, Storage Wars, Mythbusters, Community, Phineas and Ferb and The Walking Dead. Several of the above quotes came from Red Dwarf, The Simpsons and Kim Possible. Other favorite authors/quote providers include P. G. Wodehouse, Terry Pratchett, Stephen King, and the comedic travel writer Bill Bryson. Other computer games he plays are NetHack, Spelunky and Zuma.

He also does a daily fantasy webcomic which has managed to score a couple of unsolicited trope example listings. Woot!

Other than that, he's a slacker.
