TV Tropes Stamp by ChimeraDragonfang TV Tropes Stamp by ChimeraDragonfang
"TV Tropes is a veritable black hole of hyperlinks, each leading further into the center of oblivion. The entire site is made up of a community that spends its life collecting patterns and commonalities between fictional worlds. It applies names to every plot device, every story arc and every cinematic tool ever captured by a camera and then links them to one another. The result is like being in the mind of a paranoid schizophrenic deciphering hidden codes in newspapers. Clicking on one link will ensure that you click on another, and another until you have lost your way back home and forgotten who you are."

- From this Cracked article (and doesn't that just open up a whole 'nother set of links to get lost in. I am an evil, evil person.)



Guess where I was until 05:00 Friday night/Saturday morning?

I'd appreciate a :+fav: if you use it.

Why do I keep finding people like me on DeviantArt?
One last question: Do you enjoy Sir Terry Pratchett's books?

I enjoyed Good Omens quite a bit, though never quite managed to get into the Discworld books. Read the first two, but they didn't really grab me the way some other series have. I might give them another go after I've worked my way through the pile of... maybe close to twenty books I currently have in my to-read pile (they were on sale; I couldn't help it).:book-bounce:

If you read nothing else, read the entire works of Sir Terry Pratchett.
He's my favorite author.

After reading Paranoia Fuel, Nightmare Fuel and Fridge Horror... yup! Can't sleep! :fear:
But i know how you meant that. I am not Comically Missing Point :XD: I also can scroll TV Tropes ALL DAY LONG!

Haha, I didn't even think of it like that at all, but that is indeed another way TV Tropes keeps you from sleeping.

Yes... thanks to Toy Story Paranoia Fuel i am afraid that my toys watching me... and TV Tropes made me find Eversion, half-platformer, half-horror game, watched some Let's Play's of it and OH MY GOSH, DA HANDS! :O_o:

Because who needs sleep?

TV Tropes is too awesome, and I always end up reading some sort of messed up creepypasta on it anyway so insomnia is welcome.

Tv Tropes and Cracked are probably the two single most addicting sites in the world, but when they hyperlink together, it takes it to a whole new level...you won't sleep until you begin to hallucinate

Well at least you have a responsible adult around to kick you off. When you are the responsible adult, there's no one to tell you "No." *Has stayed up stupid late more than once because of TVT.*

Yep, the description is very true :D . Its almost impossible to just spend a few minutes there...it's too addicting.

I've learned never to go to that website at all unless I have hours to kill and/or don't have to be up early the next day.

09:00: Somehow get teacher to visit TV Tropes. PROBLEM SOLVED.

I should probably consider myself very fortunate that I didn't discover that site until after I finished college.
