Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!


So, it seems the judge threw out the case in which a man was suing McDonald's for making him fat. Reasonable? Partially. The judge also left an open door giving a possible strategy that might work. Ridiculous. Not that McDonald's is a nice corporation or anything, but a lawsuit like that seems crazy, but it's certainly part of the US trend of lawsuits of personal injury. I've always found it weird and contradictory that in a country that prides itself on individuality and self-reliance some people can get away with spending so much time and energy trying to blame others for problems that in many cases they themselves caused. These people say: if it's good, I did it. If it's bad, someone else must have! And lawyers are happy to oblige since they make tons of money...
