Default legalese BS

just listening to the radio, the station was reading off its legal rules regarding its contests, and they said the following
"all decisions are final, and may be changed at any time."

if something can be changed,
HOW is it final?

I think you need to be a lawyer to understand that!

It's fake legalese written by someone who isn't a lawyer and doesn't really understand the subtleties of legalese, but is thrown in there to sound impressive and professional.

How about locked and loaded? Wouldn't it be loaded and locked? I mean, if you're locked that's pretty much it, right? You sort of have to get it in the right order to be effective.

I'm sure we've all heard the 'New and Improved!' rant. If it's new, how could it be improved? If you've improved it, it must have existed previously and therefore not new.

'One can also understand "lock and load" as a meaningful instruction with the M1, as described in the manual: before loading the clip, the proper procedure is to lock back the bolt using the operating rod. Note that on page 21 of the below referenced manual the procedure for preparing the M1 Garand for firing is to "pull the operating rod handle to the rear until the bolt is securely LOCKED open". To load the clip without first locking the bolt could result in the bolt inadvertently expending a round, which could be lethal.'

Right! Old terminology is still used on present small arms. Even with a double action automatic pistol you still have to load the first round...

I don't think it's that hard to figure out even though it sounds stupid. All decisions final means, don't argue with our decision because we have the final say. The "can be changed at any time" means we also reserve the right to F you over if we feel like it.
