Troperwall Experiment is now Live: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Troperwall/ParadoxialStratagem
Hey, what the heck are you doing on my page?! Nah, I won't harm you, I'm assuming that you the reader must have stumbled onto this link by accident and certainly weren't actually curious enough to try and intentionally know more about me. I'm a somewhat mysterious troper and I've been around this site longer than what my statistics will tell you. I have a tendency to give a helping hand to those pages that are...less than satisfactory in terms of grammatical accuracy. I am an 18-year-old (For the moment) Caucasian male American whose name is [REDACTED]. My favorite color is green, my hobbies include video games, reading books, playing video games about reading books, and reading books about video games. I also have a fixation with capsaicin and am a bit of an audiophile when it comes to music. Keep in mind that this profile is not...permanent. More information may or may not be added depending on a combination of factors such as how comfortable I am with adding more information.
Philosophy: Realistic Optimist
Specializes in: Sciences such as chemistry and biology with some physics and various different video games.
Did I also mention that I know how to play some keyboard and guitar? I also know some martial-arts and am becoming familiarized with the basics of programming.
Positive traits: Can learn quickly, supports an Egalitarian view of Gender Equality, Honest, Tries to be kind, loyal to true friends, does not give up on things perceived to be important, tolerant of many controversial states of being. Gives nothing but best effort on important things.
Flaws: Tends to be self-loathing, not very good with patience. Does not make friends easily. Romantically Ignorant. Does not handle high levels of stress well.
('Still in Progress')
Bad Liar: The best I can pull off are half-truths. Any real lie will cause me to start laughing at myself for it. Can be done deliberately for humor.
Berserk Button: Due to my calm and collected nature, it takes a lot to trigger what few berserk buttons I have. If you know what's good for you, DO NOT excessively instigate me or any of my close, few friends in combat. I will do WHATEVER IT TAKES to make sure you lose and I win.
Beware the Nice Ones/ Good Is Not Nice: I am usually not hostile, however my brutal honesty is something to fear if you truly deserve it. Plus I'm nothing close to weak, don't ever mistake me for being weak.
My Country, Right or Wrong: To an extent, even though my nation has its flaws and mistakes, I accept it for what it is AND THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT!
Neutral Good: I do what is right not because I'm ordered or compelled to, but because I want to. I don't need some unnecessary doctrine with superfluous, and often times false, definitions of right and wrong.
Pragmatic Hero: Although I'm not really a hero or villain in Real Life, my intentions are for the greater good and I'll do WHATEVER IT TAKES.
Playing Against Type: In reality I'm quite a calm-mannered, emotionally-restricted character. In fiction, I tend to portray a BOISTEROUS, ALL-CAP ABUSING, ULTRA-MASCULINE EMBODIMENT OF BADASSERY RESPONSIBLE FOR MORE PROPERTY DAMAGE, EXPLOSIONS, ACTS OF SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION AND SHEER AWESOMENESS! (Okay, I merely impersonate one for the sake of amusement.)
Sophisticated as Hell: I'm the only person I know who enjoys good chats about philosophy, science-fiction and spiritualism, yet also enjoys weird internet humor and sometimes acting insane. (Then again, I don't know many people).
Stoic: Downplayed, my emotions are restrained but they're still existent...in small amounts.
Not So Stoic: If you're a good friend of mine, I tend to reduce the amount of restrictions I place on my emoting.
Think Nothing of It: My attitude towards people; especially female, if I do a favor or something nice.
The Spook: Tends to come off this way...unless you get to know me.
Token Single Guy: A member of a trope that the community just seems GREATLY opposed towards acknowledging the existence of. In any setting where couples are prominent, I'm the odd one out.
Verbal Tic: Oh where do I begin? Somehow the words "Somehow, seems, personally, honestly" and various qualifiers end up repeating in my vocabulary.
My unrestrained form tends to use the term BADASS, frequently interchanging it between being an adjective and a noun.
Science Hero: If they aren't dependent on technology, but rather remains its master.
Tropes I Strongly Dislike
All Men Are Perverts: Can't tell what's worse, the fact that the media makes it seem like all men NEED to be perverted in order to be considered worthy of having their existence acknowledged by women or the fact that it makes men look like they have about as much depth as a piece of paper.
Chainmail Bikini: I could think of so many ways to exploit the obvious flaws of that pathetic excuse perverted men (and yes even women) call "armor."
Double Standard: Most of them are fallacious and otherwise useless in reality.
Human Aliens: Horribly unoriginal under most cases unless they happen to be humans that lived on another planet that just call themselves another name due to a different language.
Ludd Was Right: Not only do most modern examples fail to accurately reference this trope, there's a reason this advanced tech exists in the first place: necessity!
Scandal Gate: There is NO basis for adding the suffix -gate to any kind of scandal! The Watergate Hotel scandal was not the first ever recorded in history and this so-called "necessary suffix" I keep reading whenever people start reacting adversely to something is STUPID AND UNNECESSARY! Seriously, you're not making anything sound more dramatic or relevant with this naming scheme, IT HAS NO MEANING!
