Andy Weir wrote "The Egg" I just shared it

but I agree that it is very good writing. I was the math teacher's friend in school, and the math teacher's friend is usually the English teacher's foe you know?

It never fails to make me mad when a professor or teacher tells me a well thought out paper deserves a C- because I wrote in the passive voice too much. I had a teacher that wouldn't let us use any form of the verb "to be" at all. If we did even once we had to rewrite the paper....

What was the point of that?

Sorry for the rant, double sorry if you're an English teacher...
