hows it going UG? here's the story, the store i'm currently working for is closing, and upon my resignation (and subsequent buyout) i have to sign a contract understanding that i can never work for the company again, ever. One slight problem arises from this: one sentence is too epic. help me wrap my head around this, and post some of the most epic pieces of literature

That's a long sentence. =\
When a man lies he murders some part of the world
These are the pale deaths which men miscall their lives
All this I cannot bear to witness any longer
Cannot the kingdom of salvation take me home?

God fucking damn that's a massive sentence

I would just sign it and not care. :/

They could have used at least one semicolon there.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

Don't sign it, return it with a: tl;dr it's the only appropriate response to such a sentence.

In primary school, my friend wrote a letter for the assignment we had been set, and he wrote a full A4 page in one sentence. It was awesome.

That was such an epic sentence, that I cried when the bolded, underlined words came.
Seriously, just imagine someone saying that. I remember Ace Ventura saying a long sentence without taking a breath. Epic lulz ensued.

Either this or write "WALL OF TEXT" and draw one of those little running around smileys on it.

The constitution is much easier to read than this. I have no idea what it said.

by the way the title of this thread misled me, i thought it was about sentences like Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant and vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition! The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

I cry whenever I see lawyers pull crap like this, seriously, plain English ftw!



Didn't turn out too well. Basically "My family and myself agree to give up our right to take action against [any part of] the company for [basically anything] that I am or have been entitled to because of my employment/resignation."

It reminds me of this quote:

"In the course of three days hearing of this case I have, I suppose, heard section 4 [of the British Trade Marks Act, 1938] read, or have read it for myself, dozens if not hundreds of times. Despite this iteration I must confess that, reading it through once again, I have very little notion of what the section is intended to convey, and particularly the sentence of two hundred and fifty three words, as I make them, which constitutes sub-section 1. I doubt if the entire statute book could be successfully searched for a sentence of equal length which is of more fuliginous obscurity."

the most epic sentence ever is "Hi guys, i made the LOL WUT pear out of clay for art class"

but that is a pretty big bunch of legal BS.
