    On April 1, 2010, Gamestation, the video games shop, changed the terms and conditions on its website to say that it legally owned the soul of each customer who bought from them.

    Almost 90 per cent of customers agreed to the terms and conditions without reading – either that or they were happy to surrender their souls. The 12 per cent of customers who refused the terms were given a £5 gift voucher.

    Customers who had agreed to the terms were then sent an email which said: “Little did you realise that upon your last purchase from Gamestation.co.uk you also granted us a right to claim your humanity […] To avoid future fatalities, always check the terms and conditions.”

    The email added: “However, as Gamestation customer services conjurer I have been informed by HR that this little clause of mine is, apparently, not playing fair. So I’m releasing you from your part of the soul bargain.”

    I have to admit that I’m surprised to discover that as many as 12 per cent of people read the terms and conditions. I assumed that everyone ignored them.

    Has anybody understood the fast talk disclaimer on a radio advertisement?
