For example, in the MIT license we find this paragraph:

I, as simple human being on this Earth, cannot understand this (at least I hardly understand it).
Why is it all written with uppercase letters?
Does it basically mean that the author of the software is not responsible for any damages?
I need a simple human-understandable alternative for this long paragraph. :-)
