The day has come where I worked through so many contracts, agreements, and licenses that I now am fluent in legalese. Yes, I don't seem to find any difference anymore between normal written text and stuff created by lawyers. I even can write this stuff on my own, and it reads completely complicated, meaningful and senseless at the same time, as it should be. Isn't this sad?
But wait, there is more: Not only have I done this stuff that often that I do now understand it in my native language, German, and Austrian (Austrian legalese is a bit different, and in most cases sounds more funny), no, I also do that in english. Really. That's really, really sad.

Yeah, legalese is the thing i hate about patents. Simple things can be very difficult and extremely boring to read.

Check out this funny text in legalese: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=105x554563

Yep, patent legalese is the worst kind. Probably for a purpose, namely the one of disguising what a four year old could have figured out as an actual invention.
