Starlink parable destroyed by dinosaur? Don’t complain, the warranty doesn’t cover you

Needless to complain too much if you install the Starlink parable in your garden and then destroys it for you a dinosaur. The warranty in this case does not cover you, so it will be up to you to protect the satellite device by SpaceX at your expense. Perhaps it is better to go back and reread what is written: a dinosaur? We were aware of the problems generated by cats seeking warmth during the cold winter, even those caused by pigeons. But there was one dinosaur question no, this is new to us.

Yet the documentation supplied with the dish and the kit to be installed at home speaks clearly. The warranty does not cover damage caused by:

lightning, power surges, fires, floods, hail, windstorms, dinosaurs or other forces of Nature.

But how, Starlink promises sparks in terms of connectivity, going to cover rural areas that otherwise could not access the network, and then it does not protect against the attack of the dinosaurs? Yet Elon Musk had also renewed its offer with the launch on the market of the square dish, thinner and lighter, then promising the imminent debut of a receiver resistant to extreme temperatures, even more than the current solution already does.

After all, climate change we are getting used to increasingly hot summers and winters at times very rigid (in certain parts of the world). Perhaps Musk is aware that global warming is awakening species that we thought were extinct?

Dinosaurs are not the first strange reference we find in the documentation accompanying Starlink. Just go to the page Starlink pre-order contract (link in VIA2) to find precise indications on how to behave in case of malfunctions of the kit when you are in home on Mars:

For Services provided on Mars, or in transit to Mars via Starship or other spacecraft, the Parties recognize Mars as a free planet where no terrestrial government has authority or sovereignty over Martian activities. As a result, disputes will be resolved through principles of self-government, established in good faith, at the time of settlement on the planet Mars.
