Default G'day

Oh ye of little faith, you have let another one into your tent. I shake the sand from my sandals, look around and think, "Yes, I like this place.".

Default g'dAY (again)

Hello again,l another Atheist let in to your foxhole. How long does it take to get approved around here?

I'm Roj, I guess I am what is called a "militant Atheist" as I wish to see religion removed from everything except the private sphere.

However, I don't gio door knocking and ask people to listen to me harangue them about science, faith, knowledge, (un)certainty. But you knoeck on my door with your god ......

G'day. Glad you had a look around. Let me introduce you.

This is the Philosophy Department of the University of Wooloomooloo. I'm Bruce, and I'll be your guide. I'm the Head of Fucking Swearing, and you're fucking welcome.

Just over here to my immediate left is the President of the University, Bruce Sturgess. The unitiated think she'll have you arm off soon as look at ya, but that's only cos she has to put up with us cunts.

Just down there in the trenches you can see the Hardworking Vastly-Underpaid Bruces, the HVUB's which many think don't actually exist. Trust me, they do fucking exist and if you're not careful one of 'em will have your arm off. Some of them respond to gentle coaxing or offerings of spiritual libations, and some of them just want beer. They are, after all, Bruces.

We've got Bruces from all over, if truth be told, and they are many and storied. We've even got a Bruce from Ireland by way of Macunia. We consider it a cultural outrage program. He's Adjunct Professor of Swearing.

There are also (and this is important) some Bruces who have done a lot of work but retired for various reasons, or moved on to other roles. We're not so much a moveable feast as a moveable drinks-cart.

Fact is, no-one makes a living from this, so as long as I manage to be funny enough, I get to be a Bruce.

Please shake the sand out of your sandals before you enter the tent, not after!
