And coffee kept at the mfgr's specified temp, 20 degrees lower, only gives second degree burns in a matter of seconds. IOW, hot coffee will hurt you. BE CAREFUL with it.

I take the hard line with this one. Anyone dumb enough to sit still while their lap's on fire (instead of dancing around, ripping clothes off and blowing on it, which immediately cools it) doesn't deserve their bills to be paid.

Not according to 19.8 million drive-thru coffee lovers.

More people complained about cold coffee than they did about burns. MD kept it hot because 90% of the drive-thru orders were people driving to work and they wanted hot coffee when they got there. This was back before microwaves at work were standard, but it still holds true.
BUT, Why should 700 Darwin Attemptees be counted, anyway?
Q: Have you ever burned your tongue on hot coffee from any place other than MD's? Do you consider your lap to contain less sensitive organs?
OK, rant #2 hit my email earlier today:

DIVORCE AGREEMENT
THIS IS SO INCREDIBLY WELL PUT AND I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE IT'S BY A YOUNG PERSON, A STUDENT!!! WHATEVER HE RUNS FOR, I'LL VOTE FOR HIM.
Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al:
We have stuck together since the late 1950's for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce.... I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.
Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.
Here is a model separation agreement:
Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.
We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them. You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU. Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military. We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel. You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell (You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them).
We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street. You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens. We'll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO's and rednecks. We'll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood .
You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we'll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us. You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.
We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values.. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N.. but we will no longer be paying the bill.
We'll keep the SUV's, pickup trucks and oversized luxury cars. You can take every Subaru station wagon you can find.
You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors. We'll continue to believe healthcare is a luxury and not a right. We'll keep The Battle Hymn of the Republic and the National Anthem. I'm sure you'll be happy to substitute Imagine, I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing, Kum Ba Ya or We Are the World.
We'll practice trickle down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot. Since it often so offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our flag.
Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you Answer which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.
Sincerely, John J. Wall Law Student and an American --snip--

Maybe he has the meat protector installed.
Neighbour next door has a small portable table saw, blade cranked all the way up. He is plunging pieces of branches from a tree into the blade from above. *yikes*
I don't want to get hit with flying body parts.

How about taking some videos? They may be worth some $$ to the saw manufacturer should said idiot sue for defective design or some BS like that. At the least they would be quite interesting to watch via youtube. Art

If you take videos, then you get hauled in and sued for not showing the diligence due, by giving them sufficient verbal warnings of safety hazards you have observed. Your video would prove you were aware a hazard existed and did nothing.
When you did go over to warn them and they told you to piss off, you would be guilty of not stopping them with a baseball bat, demonstrating the diligence due to stop them with "whatever means necessary".
If no accident occurs you may be guilty of assault with a baseball bat (American style).
I think you were out of town when it happened...weren't you?

Growing up in the 50's & 60's with a coal furnice .It was amazing I never lost fingers using the saw my mom & I used for cutting kindling wood., It was an arbor on two pillow block mounted under an old peice of table top. I remember one day driving my dad's Model A tractor out of the shed and into the garage and running over the saw. After that I had to use one of those one man cross cut saws that was taller than me. I was age seven. Now that I am in my 60's I've clipped both thumbs on my table saw ,And it has a gard on it. Oh to be seven again. Jerry

Sounds like an old Red Green skit.
He threw peices of wood at that saw and they bounced off the spinning saw blade. It made me cringe. It made a metallic ringing sound each time the wood bounced too. It gave me the heebie jeebies.
