Lookie lookie, use your Visa card and win a trip to the Super Bowl

There's a bit of fine print at the bottom, but that's only the start. 2 more pages:
finePrint1.jpg

And just to ensure winning the fine print prize, another page:
finePrint2.jpg

How many people do you think read all of the fine print?

Having won several trips via sweepstakes, that one was particularly ridiculous. Most are a page involving taxes, forfeiting if not used, affidavits attesting to who you are etc. Some sweepstakes they mail me coolers or backpacks or BBQ grills. It’s a hobby I maintain separate accounts for.

The 'fine print' is morphing into mostly TOS, privacy policy and user agreements along with regular updates. One needs a law degree and most of a day to decipher them. And they can go on for pages. Pressing contol + increases the size but it's of little help. Does anyone ever even bother with anything other than scrolling to the bottom for the 'I Accept' button? Yeah, me either. They could promise a virus that will wipe your hard drive, screw your significant other and drink all of your beer- and no one would ever notice. They're experts at burying and baffling with bullshit. The most insidious of 'fine print'.

What you always get unless you hit the 'Decline' button is a total surrender of any pretext of anything resembling privacy or security. Yet, here we are.

Remarkable talent this guy has.

And I'm encouraged. Not only did he fit a camel through the eye of a needle but an entire caravan of them- and a tree and a pyramid to boot. With a little work on the 'riches', I could have my cake and eat it too and still enter the kingdom of heaven... Oh and ahh... never mind.

Sorry. Carry on.

There was a Japanese artist featured in NatGeo when I was a kid; he would carve or paint entire scenes on a grain of rice, or a human hair. Extremely fascinating...

We have a member named Kiffertom on this thread...and this is his signature...

I would like to draw attention to the final sentence in his signature...

Fatrat - you are alleged to be a pussy.

How do you plead?
