I wonder why she got dumped after 8 days.

Or a better question, how did he keep it going for that long?

Sounds like the biatch deserved it; get off my lawn.

I love those retarded commercials for those stir events where they try to make you think it's all attractive people. Notice there isn't an ugly person in sight? Yeah right...

Ok; for everyone who wasn't paying attention last time:


NEVER TAKE A DATE TO YOUR PLACE OF RESIDENCE ON YOUR FIRST DATE!

/ I'd say that it isn't advisable to take them to your place of residence before you get to know them

// also; never include your home address in any online account

I can see this from an eharmony hookup, but not a Match.com

I'll be brief.

The lawyers are going to kill this lady.. in court.

FTA: "The 50-year-old real estate agent and mother of two said the attack left her hospitalized for months. She endured three head surgeries and a seizure. While she was in the hospital, Beckman said Ridley killed an Arizona woman he met on the same website."

Predict what again, subby?

I don't even think you'll need the horoscopes page for this one...

claims site doesn't properly scan applicants

Scan? Like the TSA?
 
2013-01-24 12:37:22 PM  
"They don't say one in five are killed," said Beckman

Lifetime just found their next original movie. Who would Beckman sue if she had met Wade at a bar? Budweiser? You can be sure SOMEONE would be getting sued.

This. Take a complicated route home after the date as well, in case they try to follow you. Or, you know, don't ever meet potential mates online.

If any of you hotter farkettes (you weren't featured in a People of Walmart video) want to hook up, I am totaly not crazy and/or probably won't kill you.
 
2013-01-24 12:39:30 PM  
Sounds like someone has mounting medical bills that she cannot afford and is getting desperate.

Hell, it may work, McDonald's had to pay up when that one dumb-ass spilled hot coffee on themselves.

Though, on the flip side, should you be able to sue the bar you got picked up in if the guy who picked you up turns out to be a psychopathic killer?
 
2013-01-24 12:39:30 PM  
I assume if you are a Las Vegas realtor, you are a horrible person.
 
2013-01-24 12:39:34 PM  
How about don't f*ck strangers you met on the internet?

I know that might ruin the bathroom shenanigans at Fark parties but it's just common sense.

Kristoph57: I'll be brief.

Maybe not, with these you never hear the details. Who knows if there is evidence that match.com knowingly allows dangerous people to remain on their site.

Example: Say this guy was complained about multiple times and the staff did nothing about it.

Could be just a money grab for a settlement but a lot fo times the frivolous nature of the case is only because they don't specify the details. The McDonlads coffee case should be a reminder of that.

In the same vein, I love the "cougarlife.com" ads, that show nothing but low-30s age attractive women that look like they should be modeling. Last time I checked, a 30 year old (and probably even a good number of 40 yr olds) could not even remotely be considered a cougar.

After just eight days, Beckman ended the relationship, causing Ridley to turn violent.

Defendant further alleges that plantiff's acts were the proximate cause of her own injuries, she assumed the risk, and was guilty of contributory negligence.

/Not a Nevada lawyer.

And that everyone is talking it up and having a good time. I'm willing to bet the reality is more like the beginning of the lambda lambda lambda house party in Revenge of the Nerds.

This is why you should stick to safer places like Craigslist. Or having sex with random strangers at the bus terminal.

I love that people continually bring up the McDonald's coffee thing. Ignoring the fact that McDonald's actually did keep their coffee at a temperature too hot to be considered safe without proper notification.

It continues to be the shining example of frivolous lawsuits...except that it wasn't one

I wish I could have read their online interactions. I'd bet good money that signs of crazy were there from the start.

the temperature recommended by the National Coffee Association for the past century.

FTFY. Sorry you don't feel 100 years of tradition is enough notification.

What surprises me is just how powerful that PR machine was before the internet. Also that people on the internet continue to use it even though it gets shot down every single. time.

Match.com, sponsored by Smith and Wesson.
 
2013-01-24 12:50:56 PM  
so this violent psycho manages to meet not one, but two women through match.com and he tried to kill them both. meanwhile, i spent an entire year on match and barely any women were even willing to respond to my emails. maybe if i acted like a violent psycho i would land more dates.

Yes, but that was AFTER the attack on this woman. The family of the Arizona woman who got killed have a way better case, since at that point the first (unprecedented) attack had already occurred.

I'd agree with website rules that say you are banned after one attempted murder of a member. I think that's more than fair.

Because the facts aren't publicly known about the case and how damaging it was. Most just know is Coffee burn = 10million then think, I burn myself with my coffee and I'm never hurt.

When you tell them McDonald's was already fined for the practice, told to quit by agencies and their own internal investigation that they then ignored, superheated the liquid beyond any safe measure where .15 second exposure was enough for full 3rd degree burns, failed to tell people about how hot it truly was, had already burned several people who required skin grafts, tried to settle for $500, destroyed that women's private parts completely rendering her basically sterile, and finally that the judgment was later reduced to something more reasonable but was still punitive due to all of their prior conduct. Then they don't seem to think the incident was so frivolous.

You are correct. An entire generation of people would have grown up having no idea that coffee was hot if that one idiot didn't take one for the team and force companies everywhere to write derp on their coffee cups.

That's all I'm saying. Why is it that the rest of us have to suffer because of one moron? The McDonald's coffee thing was just the beginning of a long line of these occurrences.
