As my last minute revision for tomorrow’s film and tv exam starts to wind down, I’ve decide that since watching ‘Of Time and the City’ to death, I really should watch another Hammer film to ‘revise’. So ‘Devil Rides Out’ it is! Class shizniz.

Well, to be honest, after years of smoking and drinking, you do sometimes look at yourself and think…You know, just sometimes, in between the first cigarette with coffee in the morning to that four hundredth glass of cornershop piss at 3am, you do sometimes look at yourself and think…”This is fantastic. I’m in heaven.”
someone needs to turn down that sass level
Two things to know about Canada!
- We are smart enough to know hot things should be hot.
- We are sorry if you don’t
Interestingly enough, this lawsuit which is frequently cited by non-Americans as an example of our frivolous sue-happy ways was a case which happened in 1994 when a woman spilled coffee on herself from the drive through at McDonalds which gave her third degree burns on 6% of her body. At the time, McDonalds was serving coffee at 180-190 degrees F (that’s 82-88C for the rude Canadians), almost at boiling temperature which certainly exceeds the temperature one would expect coffee to be. They reduced the temperature and added a warning.
From personal experience, the time I spent living in a country (NZ) which does not commonly allow civil suits was terrible. I had personal property stolen from me and knew the specific person who did it, but I wasn’t allowed to sue them for the cost of the items taken from me and the police didn’t see it as a big enough deal for them to pursue finding the items. I much prefer being able to take action against criminals.
The rest of the world is made up of just as many assholes as the US, whether they choose to admit it or not.
“Nope. Americans are the rudest mother fuckers in the world,” said the American. We are just to self righteous to admit it, sadly.
