McDonalds Coffee Spillage

Everyone remembers the story about the elderly woman who spilled hot McDonald's coffee in her lap and got something like a million dollars for it (It's actually a little more involved than people think- she had the injury and McDonald's offered her a settlement...for less than her medical costs. Probably not something anyone would accept. It's a fascinating case).

And everyone has heard the story that children shouldn't have coffee as it 'stunts their growth.'

Zjabs was thinking of this the other day- sadly there's some truth to that old wives tale.

When Zjabs was young, he spilled coffee on his lap and it stunted his growth.
