Yeah. It is not quite as bad as sailing in the Pacific ocean and then getting a frozen cow on your head, but it comes close. And, to be fair: I don't think the cow killed anyone, it only damaged a fishing boat. It had fallen from an airplane, in case you're curious.

That's not really Darwinian, just some really weird assed luck, Gonzo.

It also took a while before the insurance company believed the story, according to what I've read.

Actually, Cary, that one is weird. How many people's signatures can you actually read well enough to figure out their name? And how many people actually check signatures on the receipt? There's this guy on one website who signed his receipts with "Check ID" for awhile and not one person even gave him a funny look. He took some pictures and I have no problem believing it. I've never seen anyone check my signature and I didn't when I worked in fast food. Now I don't even see the signatures until after the person leave the building. RS'll know where to find it (I don't..).

I used to write "check ID" on the back of my credit card, but noone ever checked. The clerk/cashier would flip the card over, look at it, then swipe it.

I tick people off on a regular basis at the convenience store, I always check ID if it is written on the card. Most people are just amazed that I check. There are a few who get really ticked off because they didn't bring in thier wallet/purse. I don't let them slide either. I think it's kinda funny, I wait 'till they leave before laughing, but they wrote it on there!

I can't believe that dumbass signed his own name, legibly... I'd be scribbling Micky Mouse or something!

Darwin doesnt feast unless the idiot is killed by his/her moronic actions.

On Credit Cards, I get checked alot...though usually its when I'm with the fiancee and its a young female on register (I think jealousy or something comes into play because I never get checked when its just me...odd).

I think its awesome that you check Cary....ROFLMAO. I just imagine how annoyed they get.
