I think I'm gonna sue Kay jewelers because in other languages the word kiss doesn't start with K.
I'm going to sue Trojan because when I used one of their Trojan Twisters on my wife it didn't blow my hair back.

Not to be that guy, but kiss does start with K in some other languages lol.
In French : un bisou
In Catalan : bes
In German : Kuss
In Dutch : Kus
In Czech: polibek
In Hungarian: csók
In Galician: bico
In Euskara: muxu
In Latin: osculum
in Greek: fili
In Mandarin: jiewen (kiss on the lips)
but they're slogan is EVERY kiss begins with k.

That's going to take younger guys like you to change the culture and impact laws.

Unfortunately, the younger generation are more entitled than ever so it's highly unlikely it will change.

This is the problem with America. No one values hard work and only looks for the easy way out or a way to blame others for their shitty work ethics/laziness nowadays. There are examples every day.


-That person that swoops in and takes the parking spot as soon as the person pulls out after you've been sitting there patiently with your blinking on to take the spot.

- The person that watches an old lady drop her purse and picks it up and takes it. It's free money since the lady just left it on the sidewalk, right?

-The person that points fingers at rich people for them being poor.

-The person that expects handouts their entire life

- The person that blames the government for making him take out $70,000 in student loans

-That person in your lab class that always has an excuse why he can't get his work done, forcing everyone else to pull his/her slack.

- The person that actually reads Red Bull's slogan and thinks it could give him wings

- The person that applauds someone for suing a company for $13 million because by drinking a liquid, it didn't give them wings or did not affect them how they anticipated


I hope Mr Lawsuit wastes all of his money on AIDS infested hookers and blow and ends up living under a bridge. I have absolutely no respect someone like that. When someone asks how he made it in life, he will say he was that coward that sued a company on a technicality only an idiot could come up with.

If you can sit there and make this post, you obviously didn't read everything I wrote, that and you're ignorant.
I'm the ignorant one....lol. Good luck in your future endeavors. I think you're going to need it.

Unfortunately, intelligence and technology is what happened to social darwinism. We invented all this awesome technology that keeps people safe and alive. In reality, it's just kept the scum end of the gene pool alive. The smart people were going to survive anyway. lol

Socialistic ideals haven't helped this either. Nowadays, you get rewarded for having 5 kids, each to a different daddy, by age 22 that you can't afford to raise or even feed on your own. The intelligent crowd that wait until they have a steady career, own their own home, and fall in love / marry a life partner are the ones who get punished by higher taxes, limited credit availability, limited healthcare resources, etc... it's ass backwards.

haven't read the whole thread yet, but this is exactly how i feel. i bought about 4 red bulls in that time span, and i was actually in the middle of filling out the form last night for the free money, but i thought to myself "naw, i can't do this."

also, something about the thought of class action lawsuits just rubs me the wrong way. i know a lot of of them are probably legitimate, but it's just crazy to think that sometimes companies have to pay out many, many millions of dollars so that each person can get a dollar or two out of it, even though a lot of times it's from making claims that any consumer with half a brain should be able to make sense of

This is true lol.

See the thing is most people my age just don't really care about politics, or they've grown up seeing things like the McDonald's lawsuit, Red Bull lawsuit, and everyone saying "I'll sue you!" for every little damn thing. So to them it's just normal, but they still feel it's bull shit. I dunno, but it might get worse before it gets better. Like RDY said, the that guy promised me more shit argument. People are willing to believe these fallacies, when in turn most politicians just turn right around and screw you, and most times it's even worse than the last guy did.

but you forget if we call the stupids stupid somebody will get their feelings hurt and that's illegal


we need to create an official hurt feelings report, have idiots like this guy fill them out and proceed to shove it up their own ass. we will print them on sandpaper too. 80 grit.

i just read the rest of the thread

between blackwidowxr7's opinion on this, and trying to shut down the business underneath his apartment that kept him up at night, even though he moved in afterwards, reminds me of a friend i used to have. that friend would screw anybody over in the blink of an eye for the chance to make his own life the tiniest bit better. he would kick over a 10 year old's sand castle if that's where he wanted to sit.

blackwidow, if you truly do want to view things objectively, put yourself in the position of the owners of that nightclub that worked so hard to build what they have. think of the money spent and the sacrifices they probably made. think of the same things with this red bull case. to you, it might be simple to go to city hall to shut down a club so you can get better sleep at night, but to them, they're losing their whole livelihood. in the red bull case, some people are coming out 10 dollars richer, while red bull may have to raise their prices, or even lay off employees. is that really worth it? i don't think you would think so if you took a walk in the shoes of a real business owner.

money isn't that important man. of course it's essential in a lot of ways, but i'm happy in life right now. i don't need millions of dollars in my bank account to be happy. i guess that makes me an "idiot or liar"

Good thread in a while.


That suit the dude filed was bs. That's my viewpoint on it. Having just received a 53% on my business law exam, I think it's safe to say that the case should have been tossed out to begin with.

I called and spoke to Chuck about this lawsuit and the dickbeater that filed it. This was his response to guys on here stepping on each other's toes.
