The Actu­ar­ies Dig­i­tal Com­mit­tee is look­ing to bring back the pop­u­lar Ask Gae/Ask Bruce col­umn and would like to gath­er some ques­tions.

You may remem­ber the pop­u­lar columns Ask Gae and Ask Bruce. The two actu­ar­i­al colum­nists answered a range of dif­fer­ent ques­tions from read­ers, not just actu­ar­i­al relat­ed.

Some ques­tions were:

  • I have to front up for jury duty, and I real­ly don’t want to get picked for a tri­al. How can I make sure I’m reject­ed?
  • Why is my life always so busy?
  • My par­ents are in their 70s and are start­ing to do old peo­ple stuff like chat­ting with strangers and stock­pil­ing bars of soap. Can I pre­vent this from hap­pen­ing to me?
  • I’m not sure I real­ly want to be an actu­ary any more…
  • Why does my weight creep up a lit­tle each year?
  • Will the swans win the pre­mier­ship this year?
  • I have recent­ly moved into a role where my pre­de­ces­sor excelled and bowed out on top. I am strug­gling under the weight of expec­ta­tions. How do I suc­ceed in this sit­u­a­tion?
  • The firm I work for has a casu­al dress pol­i­cy. I take this to mean dress how you are most com­fort­able. Is it okay to wear thongs to the office or is this tak­ing the casu­al pol­i­cy too far? – Can I Hava­iana some advice?

In prepa­ra­tion to bring them back, we would like you to sub­mit any ques­tion you would like the next colum­nist to answer.

Ask Bruce: I am out­raged by the extrav­a­gance shown by the Actu­ar­ies Insti­tute in mov­ing to more lux­u­ri­ous premis­es. How can our Insti­tute jus­ti­fy its excess­es? – I reject the Premise(s)
