Quote of the day

"If you read all the fine print in all the documents you have to sign, you would have no time left to live a life." - Thomas Sowell

This is why legal disclaimers are pointless. No one reads them, so why bother having them at all?

Even worse, when there is a true warning of which we need to be made aware, it gets lost in the din of legal disclaimers which warn us of things which MIGHT happen to one person in a million people, and usually only when that one person is too stupid to live anyway.

At some point in the near future, a judge will realize that legal disclaimers are just white noise. Disclaimers are the legal version of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf".
