I Owe My Soul to the Company Store. . .

. . . .or possibly to the GameStation website. Well, not me, of course, because I'm not a computer games sort of guy. But pity the few thousand others who patronised the GameStation site.

Thousands of shoppers unknowingly signed their souls over to a computer-game store after failing to read the terms and conditions on their website.

GameStation added the "immortal soul clause" to online purchases earlier this month stating customers granted them the right to claim their soul.

There's more here.

I wonder how the contract-of-adhesion defense works in the afterlife? And what does a commercial enterprise do with an immortal soul anyway?
