I have to say that this is one of the most addictive sites I've ever been on. Usually, whenever I'm bored I'll just spend some time looking at Tropes. What does everyone else think about it?

That site is incredibly addicting. It basically sucks you into a never-ending vortex of frantic link-clicking. I've known about it for a while but have not yet been inspired to actually become a Troper and make some contributions of my own. Maybe I will someday.

Anyway, it often makes me lol and sometimes I learn new things! So yeah, thumbs up.

AAAAH WHY DID YOU LINK TO TVTROPES I'M GOING TO GET SUCKED IN NOW T_T ...or not.

Yes, I do go to TVTropes. Yes, I do tend to not do anything else when I get there. That site is SO ADDICTING. @_@ I try not to go to it, even when I'm super bored, because I know if I go in that I'll be in for hours, and nothing will get done. At least if I browse PC, there's a good chance that I'll get bored and try to write...

Don't edit, though. I'd rather just read. More enjoyable that way.

That sites more addicting than crack. x-x

I look at it for a couple of hours a day, but I know guy who literally is TvT's Siamese twin, he spends almost all his time on it.

People should only go on there when they need a few hours to kill. By the way what are your favorite tropes?

Mine are:
Light Is Not Good
That One Boss
Abandoned Ship
Die For Our Ship
FanDumb
And a crapload more...

Nope never been there before, though from some of the comments I think I'l stay away because I don't like getting sucked into things, plus I need to be paying more attention to work and other important stuff than internet games.

I have, and it is. @_@ so very, very much. I like a bunch of them, but my favorites are the "badass" ones. I might consider taking a level sometime soon...

I get lost on that site at least once a week
If not TVTropes, then Unencyclopedia.
