    I found an interesting blog on the web.

    Planejammer : The Macroverse

    It's just possible that some of you may find the blog itself interesting.

    I hope so.

    For me, though, the best bit is right at the bottom of the page.

    It's this:

    THE WARNING: The contents of this page may prove offensive to social democrats, liberals, socialists, the kinder, the gentler, the gullible, the innocent, government workers who feel that neo-platonic catfish crisis management consists of a worthwhile use of public funds, ministers of cultural identity, national cohesiveness and poodle sculpture, members of the pony express riders union local 216, who have been locked out since August 14, 1877, unwed fifteen-year old moms with three or more children, sticker-shock councellors and the recipents of government grants for underwater ballet. At least, I certainly hope so.

    Since no one ever look at disclaimers, people have learnt to become a bit creative with those.........

    I read a lot of disclaimers and EULAs. It's a quick check on whether
    or not to be suspicious of a web site. If a disclaimer makes me fall
    about laughing, it helps me believe that the site is good.

    On the other hand, a EULA which states:

    "By viewing this web-page you agree that we own your house ..."

    Here's another good one:

    When I was editor of CESSNA OWNER magazine and PIPERS magazine, the contents page carried this disclaimer every month:

    Our legal department asks us to remind you not to eat this magazine.

    I always wondered how many readers noticed.

    Not a disclaimer page, but I love the FAQs over at Rooster Teeth, the folks who make Red vs Blue

    Red vs. Blue · F.A.Q.

    Any FAQ that begins with

    is OK with me! :thumb:

    That's one busy site.
    That link didn't work for me in UK, this one did:
    Red vs. Blue · News >> click FAQ >> start reading >> stop reading >> come back here

    I like the FAQ about bandwidth. :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

    Thank you for that link. :thumb:
