Cruise lines have learned that it's important to cover their backs from all manner of unexpected events like, say, attack by a mysterious lake monster.  Jacobite Cruises in Scotland has taken out an insurance policy against damage to their ships by the Loch Ness monster, the Scottish Sun reports. More than 100,000 people seek sightings of the mythic creature on Jacobite boats each year. "We see it as keeping in line with good business practice," Freda Newton, managing director of Jacobite Cruises, tells The Scottish Sun, according to NPR. "There is so much going on — people have tried to hunt the Loch Ness Monster, people have tried to capture it. We just don't know what could happen. It's prudent." Camp grounds might do well to look into Big Foot insurance policies.
