Every time you sign up for a new online service, you face a choice:  do you click "accept" at the bottom of a long scroll of dense legalese that is the company's terms of service. We decided to whip out the old magnifying glass to get a better look at the fine print and bring you some of the more unexpected gems buried in real terms of service agreements. Can you guess which ones are real? 

Some of the answers are provided in booming audio below.

 

Here's what an odd term and condition sounds like, as read by WQXR's Jeff Spurgeon, with the minor extraneous phrase omitted for clarity.   

No nuclear bombs allowed.
