Until I found hubpages I had an impressive LOI (Lack of Intelligence), a comprehensive LOE (Lack of Experience) and a complete LOI (Lack of Insight).

But that will change soon as I read the hubs of others and look forward to an increase in my AOI, AK and BOE quotients (Abundance of Intelligence, Accumulated Knowledge and Backlog of Experience).

Feel free to fan me, friend me or follow me. I'll do the same, if I find your hubs to be of either educational or entertainment value.
