Standard Disclaimer

Back in Nuclear Power School in 1985, my ADD would enable me to work on other … let’s call them “special projects”…when I already knew the subject being taught. Amazingly, I found one of them today (July 24, 2013) when looking through old files for something else. Handwritten, in different inks and pencil from the infrequent times I added to it later over the next ten years, I had started something to be slapped on any product and service to thwart the frivolous lawsuits. I haven’t touched it in more than 20 years, but here is an abandoned work in progress, my Standard Disclaimer:
