"What is a 'glosspinion'?"|
It is just as the name implies, part glossary and part opinion.
"How do I tell the difference?"
Use this handy scale:
|You already know what is being described and agree with my astute insight.||
|You did not know, but it makes sense.||
|You have no idea what I am talking about.||
|You did not know, but it does not quite jive with your understanding of the universe.||
|You disagree with my ignorant, misleading, and one-sided analysis.||
Understand: this is The GlossPinion.
The Satyrs of Satire have demanded that I overstate my case
in emphasizing certain points. For the sake of art, I do so
unabashedly. If you disagree with me, get in line (unless
of course you are British, in which case you may get in queue).|
If you would rather have a straight definition, try
Or choose your own glossary at the Glossarist.
The only life-insurance topic in which I claim any expertise whatsoever is my own personal, participating, Whole Life policy from New York Life. The further afield any of the below definitions get from that, the more likely they are to contain outright misinformation in addition to the opinion element. Please, DO NOT MAKE ANY DECISIONS BASED ON WHAT YOU READ ON THIS SITE. Go to my links page if you want to gather information from true experts. The Visible Policy site does try to be balanced and accurate, but here I am just a crazy guy standing on a soapbox.
