Post What do you think of TV Tropes?
For those of you who don't know what TV Tropes is, it's a website discussing tropes and how they're applied in not just television, but also books (both prose and comics), films, etc.. It's very informative, in my opinion. However, it can be TOO interesting.

But, i've learned lots of great things on that site. the conservation of ninjitsu, the godzilla threshold...

Have you tried that? Looking for answers?
Or have you been content to be terrified of a thing you know nothing about?

Are you pushing your own short comings on us and safely hating them from a distance?

Is this the virtue of faith? To never change your mind: especially when you should?

Young Earth Creationists take offense at the idea that we have a common heritage with other animals. Why is being the descendant of a mud golem any better?

Confidence being an expectation built on past experience, evidence and extrapolation to the future. Faith being an expectation held in defiance of past experience and evidence.

I used to really like that website. However, they turn every single thing into a trope, to the point that not a single plot point ever invented seems original.
