At this time of year TBS have a skating rink out in the front. You need to sign a waiver saying that TBS is not responsible if you slip and break your face. Do they make you sign something similar for skating in your neck of the woods? I do remember signing one when I went sky diving in Seattle though. It was interesting because before we signed the paper, they showed us videos of past sky diving accidents with people being carried off on stretchers.
