Do you read EULAs?

There's no better time to realize just how many EULAs (End User License Agreements), and just how incomprehensible they are, than when setting up a new PC. But does anyone actually bother reading them?

I'll be honest with you, I rarely read EULAs. I've been exposed to so much EULA legal mumbo-jumbo and gobbledygook over the years that I've come to the conclusion that you can distill the pages of circuitous prattle down to the following:

Blah, blah, blah ... heads we win, tails you lose ... blah, blah blah ...

Occasionally I will venture into a EULA looking for answers to very specific questions, such as how many installs of a particular program I'm legally allowed to do. However, most of the time the answer isn't forthcoming, at which point I admit defeat and either Google for the answer or hit the company with an email asking for clarification.

If I can't make sense of EULAs, I hate to think what the average user makes of them.
