People in Wisconsin do talk kind of funny (I used to live there and I still say wis-CON-sin)

Expect to see a "CAUTION: Contents may exacerbate existing brain damage" (no pun intended regarding my username) warning on your next bottle of store-bought beer... *facepalm*
If you research the McDonalds case with the coffee you will realize that the woman that got burnt deserved every dollar she got. I use to think it was stupid too until I read the details. Sorry off topic.

off/on topic regarding human idiocy: when I lived in Vegas, a couple was suing one of the big casinos, each with their own lawsuit. the man claimed he went into their bathroom to drop a deuce and gut his hairy walnuts squashed between the seat & rim of the terlet. how in the giant floccing squirrels he did that on accident goes beyond the normal perimeters of public crapper etiquette. the woman was suing because he could not preform his husbandry duties.

Maybe they were serving the coffee hotter than necessary, I'll give you that. But still, potentially hot (or sharp, for that matter) objects getting around my crotchal region tends to raise a red flag in my mind.

But I digress...sorry for the OT.

Not only was the coffee nearing boiling the kid at the window basically dropped the coffee in her lap. In other reports the kid running the window had been reprimanded for not putting tops on drinks properly and spilling them into cars. The woman suffered third degree burns and disfigured/ burned vagina for the rest of her life. Sorry to be off topic I get so sick of hearing about BS lawsuits and the McDonalds coffee lady comes up and saying that she didn't deserve or shouldn't have sued is just plain wrong. Again sorry OT

The optimum temp for the water when brewing coffee is 195d to 200d...so Micky D's was doing what should be done.

Reports I read said she spilled it in her own lap after her son pulled the car away from the window and parked the car for her to remove the lid and put cream and sugar in the cup herself...
