The Biggest Lie Ever
Speaks for itself…

Re: The Biggest Lie Ever
lol, it's things like this that make me wonder over the legal state of things like EULAs. Which company seriously expects that each customer will read all 60+ pages of an agreement every time they get a new piece of software? I've heard that various microsoft EULA's contained clauses that said they weren't liable if you suffered loss or injury from a faulty product even if they knew it contained a faulty code (which is a giggle for a home PC because how can it cause you damage but not for say a medical computer or something that runs a transport system).

South park did a parody of this where by not reading the agreements on some apple products a character is legally imprisoned by apple for human experimentation. The episode was also a parody of human centipede....

Kind of like the quote my manager used to say:

Your silence betokens your acquiescence.

At the time he said, I had to look up the words just to be safe. :-)

Rossi and the e-cat scam (on-going...). And, perhaps all LENR research.
