    I was raised and taught to shoot by my dad.I actually wouldnt know what its like not to know about guns or to never have shot one before.As far as pistols go though I didnt get into them til I was older and had friends that had them.Now I have my own collections of rifles, shotguns and pistols,
    In North Carolina if you buy a used pistol from a friend its not required to have it registered thats just when you buy the pistol from a store or from someone that is a stranger and wants the gun cleared out of their name.I am not talking about "Hot Pistols".
    Same with Indiana. It is actually the seller's responsibility to ensure the buyer is not a convicted felon (in which case it is illegal for them to purchase a firearm).
    Can't believe I haven't posted this clip yet.

    Lol. I was testing your reaction. Bustin balls if you will. Most lawyers (that I know, anyway) get all bent out of shape when people complain about that case. I am fully aware that it wasn't frivolous, but wanted to see if it would get you fired up. Apparently not...
    Hahahaha I was told in school by someone that that ladys skin melted off or something. I considered mentioning it in here but figured wasn't worth the typing effort.

    As for patent, and IP generally, I've figured out I have no chance bc I don't have a background in science.
    Despite the fact that my art background would massacre copyright opposition everywhere.

    F it I'm gonna go into securities .

    The injuries were pretty serious but that part isn't in Letterman's monologue.

    Lots of good lawyers in patent litigation don't have science or tech backgrounds. But, there will always be securities and banking disputes. Some of the most interesting copyright cases I've read involve comic books.

    Just the way these firms are operating now they seem to want every IP lawyer to be able to do all of it: starting with patent bc its so specialized.

    I wasn't involved in the discovery phase, so take this with a grain of salt. Apparently McD's corporate policy was to sell coffee at 180-190 degrees so it was still warm by the time people got to work and decided to drink it. She purchased the coffee (wasn't driving) and her son (or whoever she was with) pulled into a parking spot so they could put cream/sugar into the coffee. She put the coffee between her legs to remove the lid. The heat of the coffee then supposedly caused the cup to melt and she suffered third-degree burns on something like 15% of her body (including genitals). IMO, far from frivolous. If your intent is to serve coffee at that temperature, the vessel it is served in should be engineering to withstand that temp (including some sort of safety factor). If this is all true (which it appears to be based on the judgement), McD's negligence resulted directly in this woman's injuries.

    Also, they apparently went to court in an attempt to win the difference between what her medical bills were and what insurance covered (after contacting McD's directly for the difference in an attempt to keep it out of the legal system). She was awarded far more in punitive damages, however.
