It sounds like most of your common sense is gone. The coffee suit is
a non-argument. She deserved the settlement. Yes, water is boiling to
brew coffee. But it should cool in the carafe to 110 degrees and remain
that way until it is discarded some hours later. Mcdonalds had a
ridiculous policy to prevent loss of a few pennies profit by keeping
their coffee at unreal temperatures for days upon end.


Imagine please if this was your wife, daughter, self, etc. Please
tell me common sense means to put yourself in the shoes of others. To
imagine how they must have felt and still feel. If it doesn’t, then
common sense died long before you fools tried to define it.


“On February 27, 1992, Stella Liebeck, a 79-year-old woman from
Albuquerque, New Mexico, ordered a 49¢ cup of coffee from the
drive-through window of a local McDonald’s restaurant. Liebeck was in
the passenger’s seat of her Ford Probe, and her grandson Chris parked
the car so that Liebeck could add cream and sugar to her coffee. She
placed the coffee cup between her knees and pulled the far side of the
lid toward her to remove it. In the process, she spilled the entire cup
of coffee on her lap.[9] Liebeck was wearing cotton sweatpants; they
absorbed the coffee and held it against her skin as she sat in the
puddle of hot liquid for over 90 seconds, scalding her thighs,
buttocks, and groin.[10] Liebeck was taken to the hospital, where it
was determined that she had suffered third-degree burns on six percent
of her skin and lesser burns over sixteen percent.[11] She remained in
the hospital for eight days while she underwent skin grafting. During
this period, Liebeck lost 20 pounds (nearly 20% of her body weight),
reducing her down to 83 pounds.[12] Two years of medical treatment
followed.”


Please, continue to cheapen this woman’s suffering. Jesus loves that sort of thing.
