Comments should also tell about implicit conventions.
Remember my post on squeak dev about morphic heading

I do not know the unit (degrees radians ?)
I do not know the origin (toward upscreen, right ?)
I do not know direction (clockwise, counter clockwise ?)

Reverse engineering the code is not the fastest way to the information...

As for the first person, remember objects know about themselves, this is 
called reflexivity (self = ego = I).
