I remember when taking an ethics class this all came up the FDA use to keep a recommended temp for serving coffee but soon after the accident they removed the temp from the reg. also considering consumer report says most home coffee pots are between 135-155f 190 is insane.

Plus what he said
There's been more than accident with McDonalds and coffee spills seems like maybe they should have taken a hint.
Also I'm a horrible example of keeping a thread OT and ruining a topic. So sorry

I actually studied this case in college. She won the law suit because McDonalds found they could use less coffee with hotter water. Profit was more important to them than public safety.

Ahhh see now this sounds like good reason for her winning, ignoring public safety just for added profit, that IS a problem. But nah it's not just your fault chopps we are all contributing to the off topicness haha quick someone get us back on making fun of people who know nothing about beer that like to pretend to be experts!

Thanks for refreshing my memory on the rest of the details I also studied this in school in my ethic class but its been a few years ago since that class.

I once spilled a whole beer in my lap. I was going to sue myself for gross misconduct, but instead I cut my losses by lapping up what I could off the chair.

Just because I know someone will ask, there was no disfiguring of my nether regions.

There is also the fact that phsyics with water is extremely odd (for example water is the only known substance where its solid form floats on its liquid form). In regards to the case, only 2-3 degrees separates "annoyingly hot" and "will cause disfiguring burns" because the energy content of the heated substance suddenly switches from a linear scale to a logorithmic scale. And if I recall correctly that temperature point is in the same area as what we deal with when mashing our grains.

We call that alcohol abuse 'round these parts. No spilling.

Water is one of the few substances that expands at reduced temperatures, so density decreases and ice floats. I'm not a chemist, but I guess it must be the molecular structure - a big atom with two little ones attached, also the best solvent around - that makes it grow, not shrink, when it cools down.

Hmm... funny things about beer, without being a jackass... I was at the store, picked up a case of Guinness. The handle on the box ripped and the box fell out of my hand, a couple bottles broke and the precious liquid began to spread on the floor around the box.
I told the cashier what happened, and said 'I hate when I break beer!' and she said, 'Yeah, it is such a waste'. She didn't really look like a 'beer drinker', but I could tell she understood.
