Lion2004 is a clueless poster on AnalystForum. He has no real world experience which he evidences by his hyperbolic statements, his version of MBA-speak platitudes and non-insights and his personal distain of others who accept what is offered and work at their career on a practical/ results basis. He on the otherhand waits for offers which won't come, overplays his hand and dismisses successful people who show some initial interest. Here, at age 25 and with no work experience, he elucidates what he would have done had he has his time again (note the impracticality of the plan):

Young kid of asian heritage living in the outskirts of London. Has delusions of grandeur on a continual basis. Father owns a rather successful convenience store, netting enough for a decent family life. Unfortunately Lion2004 is embarassed by his family.
He's a gangly testosterone challenged white boy from old money. He's a complete disappointment and dreams of one day restoring the family pride
Bad Teeth - When will Lion settle down and take care of the family store?
Worse Teeth - Never, he dreams of running an import/export empire.
Bad Teeth - He can start by ordering a few tins from the continent, the store room is running low.
Worse Teeth - He was born fully equipped (hermaphrodite), Parents obviously erred in arbitrarily choosing the male gender.
