I am almost certain that "massageing" isn't the correct word, but I couldn't find the correct word. Could anyone help me? :D

Bla bla, can't change it anyway. Besides, it's a typo if it is in there, because it is not a recurring mistake and I asked not to be bugged by typo's. I'm trying to finish a fun story before the deadline, not to reread it 5 times.  ::)

It's not the same. The image is about being too lazy to learn the difference.

It's not like math teachers would never miscalculate something. ::)

Also, I would argue that's it should be "So many fresh bodies" not "So much fresh bodies", as bodies are a countable thing.

I was planning on writing so much fresh blood, and somehow in the middle of the sentence changed it to bodies. Those are countable indeed. Again, can;t change a thing, it holds my vote.

Could you please write the word 'I' with a capital letter I.
I am not only referring to Forecaster, there also are others who use 'i' instead of 'I'

Interesting. In TEFL now I got to correction. There is a difference I already talked about here, but is much more clear in the course. (makes sense, since they get paid for id. :P )

There is a difference between Error and Mistake. Errors are the ones I didn't mind people to point out, Mistakes are different and can be annoying if given too much attention.

Error: These are systematic mistakes which the students are unable to self-correct. They show things that the student has yet to study or understand.

Mistake: These are non-systematic mistakes, and the students should be able to self-correct them. Including typo's in written language or a slip of the tongue in spoken language.
