Not die but the other side said really fast “WE ACCEPT ALL THE TERMS” and signed it and then when our own client had an edit they wouldn’t let them edit it and so our client had to pay an extra 30 billion dollars. Watch out out there.

I love that language actually, pure CYA.

Lol fair point. I just always feel like this phrase is lvl 80 CYA

Nope - but i have seen the other side try to claim that we were retrading because of it.

99% of the law is cya, but almost no one can tell you why it’s included. It’s just the way things are done. A2, that sounds odd. That would have been the biggest malpractice case in history if true, especially since $30 billion, by itself, would be one of the larger transactions ever.

Please update defined terms to include Joke, thx

A lot of the boilerplate CYA is annoying, but this may be one of the more helpful ways of indicating the interim status of the product. To take the opposite extreme, if you just attach an LOI to an email without any text it might well be reasonable to assume it's an offer.

Anyone tried or have a Tonal? Thoughts? How are the class? Do you feel fitter after using it? How long are workouts? How often are you using it? Is it addictive and fun like peloton? We have a peloton, which we love, but aren't disciplined enough use it consistently. Need to get back into the fitness game now that the pandemic is over. Like the gym / classes, but the time saving aspect of at home workouts is great and better for us right now with baby. Might get this as gift for hubby.
