    Just because it was seen by me in early the early 2000s...does not mean it wasn't also seen by a youthful BBI earlier than that as well...time is like a river....

    Remember the wise words of Robert E Lee's great grandson Bruce....

    Funny how all 3 of those imply drinking but Bruce never made the connection to the next stage of the water....

    At some point in your life going out for breakfast is a pleasant, leisurely event. It's even better with friends. Serving coffee extra hot ceases to be an effective strategy.:)

    Or you just request a courtesy cup of ice. Thats what us big brained folks do. Or if I remember, I bring some ice from home. When Mrs Monkey and I go grocery shopping on Saturday AMs we make a run through the Dunkin drive thru on the way. Since I like to be able to drink my coffee when I get it, a cube or 2 gets it down to sippable temps quickly.

    I thought it had went out of business by then, though. That Hardee's shut down and I think it's currently a (possibly also out of business?) pawn shop.

    And then the question becomes . . .
    What is the current price of a cup of McD coffee in Hawaii, after the lawsuit from long ago upended their cost savings strategy and low price, and has their latest State Supreme Court ruling affected that price, raising it, as customers cannot carry any firearms at McD to protect themselves from the nefarious who would rob McD and them when attempting to buy the coffee?

    We moved to White street in about 1998...the Hardee's on 31 was still open at that time and had the cups on the wall...I know it closed not long after we moved there.....which bummed me out...but we still had Marianne's pancakes.....for a while anyway lol....

    If you're drinking McD's coffee in the land of Kona coffee, you already got robbed.

    And I suspect much like Indiana restaurants dont get yummy indiana tomatoes when they are in season, I doubt McDs there are getting the good beans either.

    Franchise consistency is consistent, for good or ill. I did get an ice cream at McD's there, though. One of those 10pm drive through last minute deals when you figure the machine has a 70/30 chance of being down so you've got the gambler's anticipation as you enter the queue.

    I'm reminded of the infamous "Five Easy Pieces" diner scene in which Jack Nicholson attempts to order a breakfast with substitutions.

    Hot coffee spills that require skin grafting to remedy is not just 'hot coffee'. What's the legal limit on how close you can set a pot of boiling water to a toddler? Right. "There's no legal limit" isn't a valid argument against creating a condition you know, or should know, creates a substantial risk of severe injury. You're obviously free to believe it's mere frivolity when coffee requires a multiple day hospital stay to recover from, but I think you'll find little company there.
    So the buyer has no responsibility for 'creating a condition you know, or should know, creates a substantial risk of severe injury'? It wasn't McDonalds that made him put a container of very hot liquid between his legs and then remove the lid

    Should I also put you down as a fan of required warnings to not reach into the whirling blades of your lawnmower while it's running? Seems like 'personal responsibility' should be, you know, more 'personal'

    I realize you are a bit late to this one, but go look at it again.

    I imagine this played a large part in them losing.
    Other documents obtained from McDonald's showed that from 1982 to 1992 the company had received more than 700 reports of people burned by McDonald's coffee to varying degrees of severity, and had settled claims arising from scalding injuries for more than $500,000.[12] McDonald's quality control manager, Christopher Appleton, testified that this number of injuries was insufficient to cause the company to evaluate its practices. He argued that all foods hotter than 130 °F (54 °C) constituted a burn hazard, and that restaurants had more pressing dangers to worry about. The plaintiffs argued that Appleton conceded that McDonald's coffee would burn the mouth and throat if consumed when served.[12][23]

    I've limited interest in repeating myself and none in entertaining your most recent strawman setup. Believe as you will.

    Have any of you read the documentation that usually comes with your water heater?

    Deep Second degree burn chart_edited.jpg copy.jpg

    So, given that information, would you put an open container full of even a beverage served at 155 - 185 °F between your legs

    The real problem was McDonalds has deep pockets and a record of paying out claims for that 'problem'. Target of opportunity
