1-> ''"You know, if you take everything I’ve done in my entire life and condensed it down into one day… it looks decent!"''²-->-- George Costanza, ''Series/{{Seinfeld}}''²Hi, I'm Infinity League - just call me IL. I'm a New Englander, a superhero fan, movie buff, music lover, amateur writer, and political junkie. I've been going to TV Tropes since at least 2009, and I've seen many tropes come and go, so despite only having been an official Troper for a short while (7 months as of November 2018), I know most of the ins and outs of this wiki.²²My interests are varied.

After all, [[ComicBook/SpiderMan with great power, there must also come great responsibility!]]²* BerserkButton: I have many, but explicit bigotry, stereotyping, willful ignorance, and sexual violence are all easy ways to make me your enemy. I also have very little patience for [[FanHater fandom bashing]] of any kind.²* BiTheWay: Heteroflexible, technically.²* BurgerFool: My experience working in fast food (sorry, [[Series/{{Seinfeld}} "good food made quickly"]]) has given me no shortage of stress or interesting stories to tell at parties.²* CelebrityResemblance: Once, when I was working the drive-thru at Wendy's, a customer called me Batman for some reason (I gave him his change, and he said "Thanks, Batman" before driving off.) I told this story multiple times, and no fewer than three people responded by telling me that I look like a young Creator/MichaelKeaton. ²** My father, meanwhile, has been mistaken for [[Music/FooFighters Dave Grohl]].²* CurtainsMatchTheWindow: Brown eyes and dark brown hair.²* DeadpanSnarker: I've been known to be very snarky at times. I get it from my mother.²* GrammarNazi: I'm not one of those [[StopBeingStereotypical insufferable pedants who will jump down your throat for committing the most minor violations of obsolete grammatical rules]], but grammar and spelling are still SeriousBusiness to me.²* GratuitousItalian: I tend to delve into this on occasion - specifically, [[Film/IngloriousBasterds "bawnjorno" ("good morning"), "grazzie" ("thank you"), "arrivaderci" ("goodbye")]], "prego" ("you're welcome"), "Basta" (exclamation meaning "Enough"), "mingya" (an exclamation equivalent to "Goddamn it" or "Come on!"), and "ba fungul" ("go fuck yourself") are my personal favorites.²* HollywoodAutism: HaHaHaNo. I've been officially diagnosed with UsefulNotes/AspergersSyndrome, but I defy many of the stereotypes unfortunately associated with such. While I am introverted and have very focused interests, I have no trouble whatsoever picking up on social cues, I get very good grades (made the dean's list three times at college AND graduated with high honors, thank y'very much), I'm better at understanding sarcasm and wordplay than anyone I know, and while I do talk really loud, it's hardly the exaggerated SimpletonVoice you'd hear in media. I talk like a normal person, just at a higher volume. Speaking of which, I'll admit that I don't like loud, high-pitched noises... but then again, who does?²* HollywoodNewEngland: Well, I have the accent (though it's not very noticeable most of the time), I'm a big fan of Boston sports teams, and I and my whole family borderline worship UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy and his family. That said, I defy other stereotypes: I can't stand seafood, and my family's accents sound nothing like you'd hear on TV (in fact, my Dad's accent tends to overlap with Brooklyn much of the time.)²* ItaliansTalkWithHands: I have 50% Italian heritage, and I tend to gesticulate a lot.²* LargeHam: To the point where my friends have told me that I should consider becoming an actor.²* MotorMouth: I've been known to talk really fast at times.²* NoIndoorVoice: I also tend to be really loud at times. I get it from my father.²* {{Oireland}}: I'm very in-touch with my (25%) Irish heritage, and I’m not afraid to make jokes about the stereotypes, especially around St. Patrick’s Day.²* OneTruePairing: [[WesternAnimation/TotalDrama Mike and Zoey]], whom I've often held as the standard for which fictional romances should be held, if only because of the great romantic chemistry they have together and that they're two tragic, sympathetic characters who deserve one another (the fact that I see a lot of myself in Mike and that [[PerverseSexualLust Zoey is really freakin' hot]] probably have something to do with this as well.)²* PrecisionFStrike: One of my goddamned specialties.²* PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy: I'm a white dude who really enjoys hip-hop. I try not to be superficial about it, however, and I genuinely enjoy the music and understand the subculture behind it - and some of the white people who do act out the "wigger" stereotype (i.e. Music/VanillaIce, Kevin Federline, Music/PostMalone, and [[Film/Deadpool2 Black Tom]]) [[StopBeingStereotypical REALLY piss me off]]. Also, I would NEVER even think of [[NWordPrivileges using the N-word]].²* PungeonMaster: Another trait I got from my mother is my [[SelfDemonstratingArticle "Punchant" for "Punitively" "Punishing" puns.]] When I really get going, I can be like [[WesternAnimation/TheLoudHouse Luan Loud.]]²* SadClown: I have no shortage of problems in my life, and my sense of humor helps me cope with them.²* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: I'm not averse to excessive erudition sufficient to elucidate advantageous talking points, much to the consternation of the less genteel amongst my peers.²* SophisticatedAsHell: On the one hand, [[SesquipedalianLoquaciousness I prefer to eschew obfuscation and espouse elucitadion]], and [[GrammarNazi proper spelling and grammar are a must for me]]. On the other hand, [[SirSwearsALot I really fucking love my goddamned profanity]] and I've got vast reserves of slang and pop culture references on fleek, bro. Any conversation with me is bound to result in a weird mishmash of this trope.²* VerbalTic: When I'm trying to explain something, I often rely on placeholders like "er" and "uh" while organizing my thoughts. I also used to end sentences with "and all that" (and I personally blame Creator/KarlPilkington for rubbing off on me in that regard), and I currently tend to call people "dude" and "bro" a lot. Because I'm a New Englander, I also tend to use "wicked" as an all-purpose adjective.²* WaxingLyrical: If I can think of an excuse to quote song lyrics, I will do so [[Music/TheLonelyIsland LIKE A BOSS!]] [[Music/TheNotoriousBIG And if you don't know, now you know...]]²* YourMom: My favorite type of insult. Here's one I came up with:²--> Yo mama's so racist, the only reason she went to see ''Film/KramerVsKramer'' is because she thought Creator/MichaelRichards would be in it.
