Sure… I’ll play this game. I won’t answer for Liz or Steve (who you asked in the other thread) because it’s their personal business.

I’m 41 years old. I’m a month and a half away from being 42. I have a bachelors and a masters degree in cultural studies. I am currently pursing a PhD in English with a focus on popular media and depictions of race, culture and class in the 20th century and the ramification that occur when narratives concerning them are depicted in said media at Duquesne University where I also teach. Specifically that job is called being a cultural critic. I formerly spent a a couple decades as a software designer and expert in human factors for fortune 100 companies where my specialty was developing software that behaved in accordance to the predefined expectations and experiences of common users. I am admittedly extremely pompous and arrogant and thrive on feedback and discourse from people who both agree with me and don’t which is why I write a blog where you are seeing these comments. I have a genius IQ. I have God complex and I am never ever sick at sea.

So yeah… my expertise is pretty much up in your face on this particular issue.
