In previous years, I've flatly refused to consider shaving off my moustache at the LCA auction. However, there was a good cause this year, The John Lions Chair.
My main regret is that I didn't hold out for more, as Russell Coker later suggested. I'd heard that the UNSW cartel had $10,000, but I wanted to make sure we got all the money out of them. Still, most other (mainly non-facial-hair) people had no idea that this was a non-trivial thing for me: I'd had the moustache for over half my life.
