Eric Dunn responded to my query about whether the Nelson Rocks liability
waiver was real. Sure enough: <<If you copy the first two sentences into
Google the first search result is: http://www.nelsonrocks.org/>>

D'oh! Shoulda thunk to use the Web. <g> Sure enough, it's a real message,
and that pretty much answers my second question about whether such
disclaimers really exist "in the wild". Best of all, I bet that kind of
disclaimer would stand up better in a court of law than the more standard
legalese, since it's much harder to claim the language is incomprehensible.
