@.@ the american judicial system . . . you guys don't know how to judge at all lol...
I can't believe a judge ordered in favor of a hypocondriac. That's just reckless and stupid. Imagine the girl's surprise? If I ever met that 'Young' lady, I'd probably beat on her and give her a real reason to have a heart attack. Then of course I'd run back to Australia because you guys would probably sentance me to death... >.>...

Question authority. Question yourself. Question your own sanity.
If you question these things, you will never go wrong.
If your right, you'll never fear the wrong.

the judge's kinda right, if miss Young had a heart attack (or whatever) and she had to go to the hospital she isn't the one who should pay the medical costs with all the respect and sorrow.

My wife and I were really ticked off about this. The old lady should get a grip. If people knock on my door late at night, I don't answer the door. No big deal. If I were the judge I'd have dismissed the lawsuit, with costs assessed to the old lady. Teach her right.

I hate the climate of fear that America fosters, and the immediate filing of a lawsuit over everything.

Ok, let me explain something. there are three "species" of americans:
The first are your extraordinary people like olympic athletes, science geniuses, and etc
The second are average americans like those girls and make up most of the population
The third group, however, is the very stupid and/or paranoid people, like the lady that sued McDonalds because she spilled coffee on herself. However, sadly this group often seems to get the most attention. ^_^'

Think deeply of simple things.

Its because people are afraid, these days, a lot of people dont trust anyone. Its not that our judicial system sucks *although a lot of times it does, but hey, why complain?* its just that really no one trust one another anymore. It isn't the perfect world that people seem to try and make it out to be. What if someone ate the cookies and they were poisned? Or some-sort of cookie bomb *ok, maybe not that ^^;;;* was there??? Its sad to see what we have come down to, but its the truth.

That's so stupid. I feel bad for the lady that she freaked out but ANYTHING could have caused her to freak out even if it wasn't a knock on the door that scared her.

God forbid people being nice in this country . . . ~_~

All I see here is greed here for knowing what she does now... that all intention was good she shouldn't even filed a lawsuit. Plus the fact that she left in the morning and not that very night goes to show that she is in it for the money. I'm begining to hate this world more and more as each day goes by. I say, to hell with the old lady and just die already.

I'm temporary out of order at the moment, so don't mind me.

I'd rather be hated for who I am rather than loved for who I pretend to be...

Hold on?! 10:30 PM is too late for a 17 and an 18 year old girl to be out? What the? This ain't curfew night for young adults - sheesh! Get a grip, Judge Baka. Stupid orders. X_x

Seems like the verdict is in - I think I'll pass the cookies to somebody else. Shame! Shame! **Tosses cookies at the old lady's house** This is for getting scared over someone knocking on your door, which I think is very typical for a lot of peeps from time to time.

geez... aren't I glad to be residing in this particular state? now it seems to me that anyone will sue anybody over anything.. [sigh] if i was that judge i would have laughed in her face and told her that she should really be spending time with a therapist, thinking that cookies are evil to be on your doorstep. How awful is this world? even if i was skeptic of these cookies, I would have just been happy and not eat them- assuming whomever made them meant well... oi.... thanks for sharing dream, i honestly don't know what this world is coming to.... see? free health care is a good thing- than you wouldn't be sueing everyone over a nice deed, because you don't want to pay the medical bill... oh how i miss canada for that 0_o..

That is the biggest pile of steaming crap I've ever seen. Ugh!

However, I did hear that a local radio station ran a drive to cover the girl's fine and court costs and made easily double that amount very quickly. Which proves that a lot of people find that ruling as stupid too. That makes me feel a *tad* better about humanity.

Sure, whatever floats my boat - ROFL

While tossing down some of those cocktails, would you mind me lighting the house on fire? I heard alcohol is a toxic-killing substance that easily is flammable and makes pain spreads like wildfire, so we can give her a slow and agonizing death. Mwahaha.

**Loads her flamethrower and toasts the living heck out of her home** She's not home, but she'll be homeless by the time she gets back.

We shall pwn'z the old lady. lol - Oh, and bring your DarkMaiden to videotape this one, it'll be a classic for us all to watch down the MT Lounge. Miketo can narrate the story while we edit the movie scenes out - uncensored, uncut, and unseen footage, that'll be on stores before you know it! It'll be called "Eat Your Cookies or Just Shove It, Lady." No offense - Mwahaha. **Hides into the bushes**

I'm just going to sit back, cross my arms, and mutter 'i told you so' to all the people who ignored me when i said the american judicial system needs some major fixing.

void rant()
{
I'm curious to know what goes through a judge's head as they make a ruling. Do they think of themselves as gods? seriously? who the hell do they think they are? It's one thing when a jury decides that somebody did something wrong, but when it's just one person, and they assign ludicrous punishments like that because "oh dear heavens it was awefully late for those girls to be outside, because i've never seen the clock go past 7:00 PM, and 10:30 is just- oh lordy lordy!", that's plain ridiculous.
} /*end rant*/
