Intentionally folding quads and seeing a royal

Playing at a 50¢/$1 horse ring game this afternoon I got dealt quad fives. Sadly, it was in Omaha, which made it absolutely worthless to hold. I folded it preflop. So sad. (See screen shot.)

Then later, playing in a 16 player horse tournament this afternoon, I got to see a royal flush being hit, for the second time ever in my life. I wasn't able to grab a screen shot, but did grab the hand history:
