I visited Victoria Falls and at the behest of a friend, signed-up to fly over the Falls in a microlight (basically, a hang glider with a lawnmower engine and a propeller) and was handed the Liability Waiver and was asked to sign-it. Knowing that it was not negotiable and that if I didn’t sign it, I wouldn’t be going for a ride, I read it; then signed-it. The desk clerk remarked, “You’re the first person I’ve ever had read it.”
