Funny you should mention a Bruce currency.
I am trying to introduce the Bruce as a unit of measure. As my name is Bruce and I am almost exactly 6' tall, I think 6' should be called one Bruce.

I have been used to measure out things like volleyball courts in the past.

Hey, if you are a member of the faculty of the philosophy department at an Australian university don't you think you should update your profile?

Russell Means
Russell Means, the American Indian activist died earlier today of esophageal cancer.

I spent two days with him back in 1989 when he was our keynote speaker at the State Libertarian Convention in New Mexico. As the county chair, I somehow wound up assigned to be his welcoming committee and sort-of chauffeur. To call him interesting or intelligent would be an understatement.

Of all Hollywood actors, of which he later became, glad I met him instead of any other, for what I think should be obvious reasons.

Charles Manson
And the next Republican nominee for President is ....

If he had only met parole by not saying "I should have killed 500 people."

Not that it matters to some.

Neal Peart
Badass drummer for Rush.

Pretty much the most badass rock drummer ever.

Cool dude on top of that as well.

Sucks.
