That's Rather Hot.

I'm in New York for most of this week.  In the cab this morning from Penn Station I saw this (I think verbatim) on a food cart:

180ยบ boiling coffee!  Always fresh!

Just another data point in the coffee tort storyline...

Nice that the vendor gives adequate warning to their customers. While 180 degrees isn't technically boiling, it certainly is hot enough to cause serious injuries.

Notice that the people who sue McDonald's for serving hot coffee seem to always spill it in thier laps. Perhaps McDonald's lawyers should be pointing out that going to extreme lengths to warn people of obvious dangers may twarth Darwinism. There must be unfortunate consequenses in the evolution of our species if we fail to thin the herd. A good hot cup of coffee in the lap may be intended to serve a greater purpose.

Stick to your dogma, Justinian. You never let me down.
