Living in: middle Europe - and thankful for that

Sex: male

Age: old as dirt

Loves: his wife. Somehow obsessed with Cameron's "Avatar", though usually rarely falling for fluffys and love scenes, never for action, and just a little bit for science-fiction (only the "hardest", yet most clairvoyant and profound kind of). Maybe because that still sometimes silly and clichèesque movie is showing a lot of what's going wrong and/or missing in our way of life: Responsibility, modesty, solidarity, connectedness - and some more.

Hates: Idiots. Like people putting pre-fabricated tags onto others instead of having own thoughs. Like people calling others "Tree-huggers" (while those never hug trees) or "Luddites" and not establishing why those opinions or deeds should be bad. Like people who think they are entitled to go anywhere and beat the s... out of others just because they want something those have. Like people who do that and try to justify their robbery and murders with phrases containing "Civilization" or "Democracy" or "Freedom".

Not eligible as a beta-reader because i am not publishing. Still, i consider myself very good in that field - i am a part-time editor, my english thesaurus is almost lexical, and i am pretty good in finding logical flaws of any kind. So...
