I’m a 39 year old autodidact, and very proud to be. I'm looking for work right now, but that's normal given my proclivity for accepting contracts. I write, I eat, and I enjoy life with all of the gusto I can. I love language and languages. I occasionally slip and use serial commas, and when I do I often leave them as a flag flying in the face of my enemy, Language Prescriptivism. I’m a native English speaker and I’ve studied both Latin and several Romance Languages that are derived from it. I’ve studied law, language, history, sociology, logic, debate, math and various sciences, because those subjects all fascinate me to no end.

comment Potential confusion: referring to home planet as “Earth”
What @Standback said, additionally, it's considered very rude to give an author criticism he didn't ask for. He had his reasons for writing it that way, and if he didn't ask for input he likely already knew what you were going to say.
