What's amazing is this story is not from the State of Florida where such things "normally" happen.

Serious note, I think his OL Coach Sam Pittman leaving was the trigger. The pinky incident didn't help UGa.

Need chair folding curriculum at UGA, then this unfortunate accident could have been avoided.

There is. It's a chapter in their umbrella opening course.

Pinky incident was two years ago. Like Justin Fields, Mays is making up stuff (dangerous environment) so he can play next year. Fields claimed harrassment, but his sister stayed at UGA.

Doesn't reflect well on Smart and the character of player he is getting.

Well welcome to the era of soft rubber folding chairs! That rates right up there with McDonalds actually serving hot coffee. Is there anything people don't need careful instructions for these days?

That aside there does seem to be somewhat of an exodus going on at Georgia that began before the Sugar Bowl. It has the feel that Kirby may be losing a bit of control over the program.

They can sue, but there are limits on what you can get for a digit.

The folks up in Indy are so stupid, they will probably fall for it.

McDonald's was in the wrong on that one. Coffee should be hot but not to the point you receive 3rd degree burns and need skin grafts if you do spill it on yourself.

If you want to survive and thrive it is your responsibility to be aware at all times. If the coffee's too hot you let it cool. I always figured the coffee in that case was nuked in a microwave. The Bunn machines simply don't make it that hot.

Strange days at thUGA.

Quote:Georgia OL Clay Webb is making headlines for a disturbing incident from his past.

Webb has been named ina federal lawsuit for being part of a disgusting high school prank and bullying incident. According to Lily Jackson of AL.com, the plaintiff, a minor referred to under the fictitious name John Doe in the lawsuit, alleges fellow students allowed him and encouraged him to unknowingly drink from a Powerade bottle that allegedly contained Webb’s semen, according to the lawsuit.

If you want to survive and thrive it is your responsibility to be aware at all times. If the coffee's too hot you let it cool. I always figured the coffee in that case was nuked in a microwave. The Bunn machines simply don't make it that hot.

And if you want to have an informed opinion about a subject it's your responsibility to do the necessary research to inform yourself. If coffee's too hot then yes you let it cool or blow on it. If it's at the temperature that McD's required their coffee be kept (180-190 F) you might not have that opportunity as it only takes 3-5 seconds of exposure to your skin to create 3rd degree burns. The elderly lady was wearing sweatpants when she spilled it in her lap while trying to add cream and sugar so it absorbed into the pants and held it against her skin for an extended period. She wanted $20K from McD's to cover her medical bills, the jury found her partially responsible so limited her damages. However after hearing the testimony of McDonald's executive and internal documents the jury discovered that this was a corporate policy that McD's was aware was dangerous due to roughly 700 people having been seriously injured prior to this case and yet failed to change their policy so they awarded the plaintiff $2.7M in punitive damages. The jury had the facts, the general public did not and therefore this was and still is held up as the posterchild of frivolous lawsuits.

Corporate responsibility is no less important than individual responsibility in protecting consumers.

Classic SNL. I get your point. Sawmills are dangerous places. I watched a guy banding cross ties for shipment get into a conversation with a truck driver while banding. He had the strap over his thumb. He kept cinching the band when his thumb popped off. We placed it in a clean Dixie cup covered it with ice and sent both the man and his thumb to the hospital. He lost his thumb.

If corporate policy was to keep coffee that hot, then you've made your point with me. However that does not excuse personal stupidity and inattention which folding a chair on your pinky includes, or placing your finger between something heavy and a brick wall, or banding your thumb off while talking.

There are two sides to this issue and the predominance is on public ignorance and inattention. My family lost 20,000 in a judgment when a man showed up drunk for work and we took him home. He was a logger. His wife drove him back to the woods, but to the wrong tract of timber. He went into the woods alone, and drunk, cranked up his chainsaw and cut himself badly. We lost to a jury of his peers for improper supervision. I despise ambulance chasing lawyers, morons, and the idiots who think sticking it to somebody who might have a little bit is fair game to cover the collective envy and ignorance of those who don't.

Round Up and lymphoma I get. Dumping carcinogens into public water I get. Lack of common sense I don't, and never will.

And for the record, coffee in Styrofoam cups with poorly fitting plastic lids handed to you out a window at a decline by a minimum wage employee talking on a head set to somebody else, is practically asking for it, even if the temperature is right.

We're in agreement then. There are some prime examples of frivolous lawsuits but that's not one of them once you look at the facts but certainly has gotten that reputation. Tort law is an important part of a capitalist society.
