Gents-

Welcome to ShaveMyFace University. A university where you can learn, grow and teach others. A place for new members to ask questions and get the proper responses. A place to come when you're having problems with your shaves whether razor burn, ingrown hairs or just unsatisfactory shaves.

Welcome,

Johnnie

Professor Gordon! :lol: Is there a diploma handed out? When is a newbie no longer a newbie?

I would say that you're no longer a newbie when you actually offer constructive and correct advice in response to a newbie question. :)

So are some of us Masters candidates? Or are others working on a PhD in shaving? We already have DrP and DrMoss and others but what would the SMFU degree be? Shaveology? Barbaria? Foliculimination?

Charlie, I think right now I have an Associate Degree and am a few credits short of a Bachelors. I would have it by now if not for all the coeds! :lol:

I disagree. Your position is contested. It represents authoritarian and outmoded "givens" which are no longer tenable as absolutes in the context of a postmodern society in which all behaviours may be seen as recensions or re-inscriptions of (inter)textual normative cultural hegemonies.

Please may I have my doctorate now?

Sounds as if you already have the doctorate, as well as several years of teaching and publishing in all the scholarly journals. I would suggest you need a fellowship of some sort: The Shave My Face Chair of Blithering Codswallop, for instance?

Fellows (and I mean that in the academic sense) I feel an opportunity has been missed. Had we but been able (not that we should live in the pluperfect subjunctive, or any past tense) to name our educational establishment Shave The Face University, we would have been able to get some cool shirts:

Well spotted. Except we don't call it "blithering codswallop". We call it "epistemological stochastics". (You'd be amazed how many people it fools.)
