Does 80C coffee freeze faster than 70C coffee?  That is really the only question left at this point

Glad to know I'm not the only freak who takes his coffee seriously. Tell me when there's a club available for me to join! Cheesy

@randomguy7,

Coffee doesn't, water does, so the water part of the coffee freezes faster from 80ºC than 70ºC not the coffee.

Follow up in water: Why do we say something as foolish as "water pressure" when water can't be pressurized?

I mean, if you can win a lawsuit against McDonalds for burning yourself because they didn't state their coffee was hot, you can pretty much sue for anything.

i get really tired of this case getting dragged out as an example of frivolous lawsuits.

1. mcDs served their coffee at ridiculous temperatures, far higher than any other competing restaurant.
2. the woman originally sued for only her medical costs.  the larger punitive damaged were added by the jury.
3. they had previously settled out of court on multiple similar cases.

A few additional points worth noting, all of which point towards corporate arrogance, intransigence and a general lack of responsibility:

(1) The victim in question suffered third-degree burns from 6 to 16% (am seeing conflicting reports here) of her body, including her genital area. She had to be hospitalized for eight days. She required extensive skin grafts and was permanently scarred.

(2) At the time, McDonalds’ corporate specifications explicitly called for coffee to be served at a temperature between 180 and 190 degrees Fahrenheit. An expert witness testified that liquids at this temperature will cause third degree burns of human skin in two to seven seconds.

(3) During discovery, McDonald’s was required to produce corporate documents of similar cases. More than 700 claims had been made against McDonald’s, and many of the victims had suffered third-degree burns similar to the victim in question. Yet the company had refused to change its policy.

Water cannot be compressed (at least, in any amount that matters), but it CAN be pressurized.  It just needs a compressed gas or gravity to pressurize it.

rofl. I'd like to know the same thing myself. Why is there no unsubscribe?

vBulletin has an "Ignore User" button that works well. The previous version of vBulletin had an "Ignore Thread" hack that was installed to a favourite forum of mine and I found it *wonderful*.

I don't know what is available for Simple Machines Forum software. Might be worth investigating. Smiley

Since a lot of people are subscribed here and may or may not use MyBitCoin, may I ask the users who do to check this out http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=29055.0 which this thread was partly an inspiration for, even with it's age.
