Think about the FDA and FTC's hush-hush abilities...

A little off topic.

people suing McDonalds because they are too stupid to know that the coffee they just ordered was HOT, as it SHOULD be, and they shouldn't dump it into their LAP...

As a future trial lawyer, it amazes me the number of times I hear this repeated. 

heamph, there is a difference between 'hot' and 'boiling.'  This poor woman was served coffee that was boiling in a styrofoam container.  While she *may* have been partially negligent, a convincing legal argument was made that the temperature of her coffee was the primary reason she dropped it.

McDonalds, in 1986 when this happened, had also had more than 700 previous known incidients of scalding coffee.  They had kept thier coffee more than 20 degrees hotter than any other competetion.

Furthermore, this wasn't some sort of mild pain and a soiled dress.  The coffee was boiling heamph. 

The woman suffered third degree burns all over her legs.

McDonalds was absolutely negligent, in my opinion criminally.  She deserved every penny of her settlement.  Here, the system worked exactly as it was intended.

Well, I'd imagine something like this. First tons of people would do things like walk into power stations if you removed the fences. People would be opening their microwaves while the food is still cooking. The hospistals would have lines of people around them for awhile till all the people with no common sense were gone. (Trying to put it as nicely as possible.) I wonder if we would become more intelligent because people would be FORCED to do more thinking and reading of instructions.

Anyone have any more input on my idea of making fool proof subwoofers? Anyone have the time and equipment to try this out? Anyone have any ideas to add?
