    But not unknown. What do you say to the person who is unfortunate to be that small percentage if the danger is easily mitigated?

    "Sorry your car exploded when hit from behind, but we did a cost-benefit analysis and you lose."?

    Let's assume you bought coffee, and for some reason, you got it spilled on you. Maybe someone else knocked it over. Maybe you sneezed. Maybe your car hit a bump. Maybe another driver hit you. So you got the coffee on yourself.

    It takes your skin off, but you are in the US and have no medical insurance. You have third degree burns on 16% of your body. Your skin is gone.

    So you'd say, "Gosh, well, tough luck for me."

    In this specific case, was it the right decision to no longer serve coffee at 185 degree Fahrenheit at a drive-through window?

    If you had to pick yes or no, would you pick yes, or would you pick no?

    Don't spill it on your face!

    Why is McDonald's increasing its coffee choices?

    Mostly the dead guy's. He should not have been trusting his life to casual responses from food servers who are likely not well informed.

    I agree.

    The main difference between this and McDonald's is the danger is not a rare medical condition, but a company policy. The coffee is capable of severely burning any customer, the peanut-laced meal is only a danger to those with the allergy.

    That's different. There are explicit legal obligations with cars. Also, no one purposefully buy an exploding car. With coffee, many like it hot.

    Again, "hot" does not mean "dangerously undrinkable".

    No, this is not true. We are careful people and we do not burn ourselves.

    Except when we do.
