Sheesh. Actually, I don't really like talking about myself too much, but here goes...

I am 29 years old, German (Turkish father, actually), a student of English Language at the University of Marburg, Germany. I play a lot of different Tabletop {{RPG}}s (LegendOfTheFiveRings, 7thSea, D&D, old WorldOfDarkness, and the list goes on), quite like StarTrek in all its incarnations, am an avid RockBand player and also a veritable fount of useless knowledge.

Oh, and I also happen to be one of the six (eight if you count the Celebrity Specials) German winners on WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire (winners as in, one million euros). I guess that useless knowledge wasn't so useless after does that make me the ultimate example of a TVGenius?

My work on this wiki is nowhere near as far-reaching as that of many others here (keep up the good work, guys! And gals, too, lest anybody take me for misogynistic or something...). I mostly enjoy reading this stuff - TVTropesWillRuinYourLife and TVTropesWillRuinYourVocabulary are becoming TruthInTelevision for me, quite rapidly. But I have thrown a word in from time to time.

So, what kinds of works do I enjoy? Apart from the ones given above, I am a near-rabid player of good old-fashioned turn-based strategy games (currently on my umpteenth replay of SidMeiersAlphaCentauri), a Raymond E. Feist reader who owns all novels, beginning with "Magician: Apprentice" up until "Wrath of a Mad God", a fan of the StarTrek ExpandedUniverse novels (just finished the Destiny trilogy), and a fan of "Popular Myths and Fallacies" books, particularly on the subject of food. Also, in no particular order: MagicTheGathering, Babylon5, BattlestarGalactica (the reimagined version), StarControl 2, the music of Suzanne Vega and Roxette, quotations (lots and lots of those), AgathaChristie and the EurovisionSongContest.

Whew. More than I thought it would be. Anyways, have fun and remember the Mantra.
