I wonder if zombiepie thinks my account is ran by multiple or if the description was a typo. I'm not mad about, only curious.

@themist997: I'd assume it's meant to be gender-neutral (rather than saying "his/her hands"), but then the next sentence uses "he" anyway.

@stordoff: Didn't notice the he, because I'm smart. Still, it's weird to think if someone thought multiple people ran my account.
