Were the 700 people who McDonald's settled with over burns idiots as well?
Would the non-idiot move have been to go one of other similar restaurants, none of whom held their coffee at 180-190 degrees?
Maybe the idiots were the very many people who didn't know they were suffering sub-standard coffee by buying it at the places who held their coffee at lower temps.
It's not that hot liquids scald. It's that overly-hot liquid does more damage, faster, than liquid in the 160 range. It''ll still burn, but you've got a couple more seconds to get it away from your skin before the damage reaches 3rd degree level.
The legal details of this case are interesting, to say the least.
