There's a lot of companies that have become huge without scandals and greed. A pretty big amount of them actually. Their advertisement about giving you wings is meant to be humorous and catchy. If you take it serious, you're the idiot.

I don't look at him as a criminal. I look at him as a lowlife piece of **** and now look at you the same way. We all acknowledge that morals don't run our legal system. That was acknowledged a long time ago. The point is that someone who exploits said broken legal system is a lowlife piece of **** and the epitome of what is wrong with society. They are the reason the system is broken and immoral. I can in no way defend his actions.
I realize what their intentions are, but that's also the risk they took for coming up with that slogan, especially knowing the track record of litigation for things like that. These companies have very well paid legal teams to avoid such things, but someone done goofed, and they ended up paying for it...literally.

The whole thing really ends up being "Don't hate the player...hate the game"
I really don't understand why you are trying to make me look like the bad guy for simply stating facts, I guess the truth does in fact hurt. I don't like the situation anymore than anyone else here, but I'm just exposing the "justification" (not that I justify it) of the suit. Attacking me isn't going to change a damn thing about what happened, so I don't know why you're getting so fired up. It's not like I said "Hey I completely agree with what he did, and I'm an immoral asshat who supports it 100%" Not the case, but believe what you want. :whackylol:

All things aside Blackwidow, don't come on here saying how you are going to serve in the military to protect rights, not knowing you are posturing to somebody like RDY who has served his time in the military and his country. It makes you look stupid and it's disrespectful man.
No disrespect intended, I'm just defending myself against the statements made that I'm a shoplifter and I am out to find a get-rich-quick scheme, that is not the case, and I DO plan on serving, hell my father and my grandfather served the Nation for almost a century. I am just amazed that when you try to show people other ways of viewing a situation, they get all defensive and start lashing out and personally attacking you, hence why I am showing that those statements are false.

Also I'm not a freshman. I'm a Junior.

And RDY, with the car example, of course not...legally it could happen, but morally that would be some BS. Same view I'm holding to this situation.

I'm actually neither of those, I'm just informed. The opinions of me that you keep throwing at me are the reasons why the rich get richer. They put the morality and personal feelings aside, and hop on the roller coaster to riches. I'm a pretty nice guy, and I work hard for what I have, and I don't abuse the system, I am in college and will one day defend all of your asses in the military so you can have your right to an opinion (free speech).
You're informed of how corrupt Red Bull is? Do share. My opinions are based on your scumbag statements, and I don't care if the rich get richer. I do just fine for musket without having to lie or cheat anyone. It's a novel concept that you don't grasp.


Sorry kids, I'm off to work. GASP......work for my money :facepalm:

The truth does not hurt. Again, we all already knew the truth before this thread was created. You're just being an asshole. There is no justification to the suit. It's frivolous, plain and simple. The fact that you find justification in this guy exploiting a broken and immoral system is why I'm making you out as the bad guy. You're no better than he is.

I have no way of knowing if Red Bull is corrupt or not, I was just stating that it is POSSIBLE.

If you can sit there and make this post, you obviously didn't read everything I wrote, that and you're ignorant.

I took the shoplifting comment as a joke or just a dig at you. I don't think guys on here think you shoplifted based on your post, they are just dicking with you. You are right the guy didn't do anything wrong with the lawsuit. He isn't smart, cool, and shouldn't be respected, he is a loser.

I have no doubt you will join the military and serve. Just think about the people who are in the military right now getting blown up for $30,000 per year when this guy is making big money on a bogus lawsuit. That's why his actions shouldn't be referred to anything other then a scumbag move deserving of a copious amount of snap kicks to the his cranial region.

+1. And you can only use serving your country as a meaningful point when you have actually served, not just currently "planning" to serve.

And the rampant suing in this country is pathetic and is a function of how lazy many Americans are, willing to do anything to make money without putting in any of the work.

My old French teacher was from Switzerland and when she moved here she said that was the most surprising thing. People here sue over anything. She said in Switzerland that is incredibly uncommon because it is viewed as pathetic, taking the easy way out and receiving money you did not earn yourself.

A chick I went to high school with won 50k in a case against a local YMCA here because she was ****ing around on the back of one of their golf carts at a track event and got her leg sucked into the wheel well and all scraped up. She said it was the YMCA's fault, apparently from preventing her retardation from manifesting itself. I guess the YMCA deserved to be sued right? They have a lot of money too, better make sure it pays idiots who don't have any common sense!

My mom's grocery store got sue'd because some old woman with a cane tripped on the curb and hurt her knee and hip. She won $65k + medical cost. Just 10ft from where she tripped, there was a handicap ramp she could've taken instead. Nothing about her tripping was the store's fault but she won anyway. It's a bunch of bullshit. The people that file these frivolous lawsuits like this are the lowest forms of life.

I can read quite well and do. You can say you don't justify it all you want but that's exactly what you've done. You even went as far as calling others who don't justify it liars and idiots. Yes, you're an asshole.

LOL. :whackylol: I don't justify it, but it is capable of happening. I didn't say those who don't justify it are liars and idiots, I'm just saying that those put into the same situation would MOST likely do the same thing, there is the 1% however...or I'm just being led to believe that every single one of you will in fact pass up a LEGAL opportunity to make $13 million dollars. It's just a foolish argument at this point. I'll conclude by saying that this whole debate just proves how touchy and uninformed people can be, not all of you, but a couple.
The whole point was that legally it was justified, point made. Do I justify it or am I immoral? Nope. Would you all do the same thing he did if given the opportunity? Yep. + or - 3-5% for error in that poll.
/End debate.

That is really messed up, any sane and moral person would agree, but yet again...it was LEGALLY justified. Should it be? Absolutely not, but that's the REALITY of the circumstances. Also this circumstance is apples to oranges compared to the Red Bull situation.

No one argued that point. The guy suing was in his legal bounds to do so.

I'm fairly certain he isn't the only guy on earth to drink a red bull and not feel "energized" from it. That said, he was the only guy to go ahead with finding it as a reason to sue a company. Your point is now invalid.

It's just a foolish argument at this point.
I agree. Everyone is apparently ignorant, but you, kid.

Oh good, you just called yourself out.

Yes.

True, but he may have also just been the first one to think about it. If not him, could have been someone else.

Not so, but those who can't accept the legally justified part are. Also, kid? I see what you did there...I see it. How old are you again?

Yeah I surely did didn't I, oops. :screwy:

This thread definitely blew up lol. My point of this was to show how amazed I am with people who use bullshit like this to screw the system. The people in this country are as lazy as they can be, go to work and make a ****ing living, like the majority of the population.

This, and people like him aren't the reason we can't have nice things, we just have to not have morals and be scumbags and drink the kool-aid. It's just wrong.

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)

Red Bull is huge and they can take the hit. Unfortunately with smaller companies when they lose a frivolous lawsuit the monetary loss is more times then not passed onto the consumer by way of price hikes, and in extreme cases the company can go under killing people's way of life. This can also effect regular people like you or I. That is why if it was legal I would enjoy force feeding this mouth breather Red Bull until he **** out his liver.

The court system taking these suits seriously is what breeds these sacks of ****.

Until the general public says enough of this crap, and some legislation is put into place to prevent these cases, it unfortunately will never stop.
