For the record, Poland Spring water is not from the country of Poland. It's from Poland, Maine.

Nestle is basically STEALING water. How are they able to get a permit for $200 and pump all the water they want out of Michigan/Great Lakes area, and make huge profits? Profits should go to lifelong residents of any state that a resources come from! Just like how Alaska gives its oil money back to long time residents.

The Poland spring water bottle said "Natural Spring Water" on the front! Nestle is evil! They have child slaves and they steal desert aquifer waters! Join my boycott of Nestle (including Stouffer's)!

okay, there are countries where "find it on a map" is a real thing, countries like Andorra, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, and small island nations like Vanuatu. Belgium is not one of those nations. It's located between France and the Netherlands.

So is the only difference between spring water and filtered water a label? And when we taste the difference between different brands of water.. is that just a placebo effect?? I don’t want to live on this planet anymore...

This is a stupid bit. The lawsuits are not frivolous. Somebody has to stand up these large corporations that lie to its consumers. Godiva is indeed misleading from consumers that it's chocolate comes from Belgium. TGI Friday's is completely duping its customers by selling potato skins which aren't really potatoes. And, Poland Spring is indeed duping its customers by selling water that is ordinary well water. Instead of class action lawsuit firms suing these large corporations, why doesn't the government take a stand and sue these large corporations? This is truly absurd.

I don't care if the people suing companies get any money out of their lawsuits, but I am completely in favor of companies being punished and fined for misleading advertising.

Fun fact: The lady who sued Mcdonalds was actually severely burned by the coffee. She only sued because they refused to pay for her hospital bill.

For me, that DID seem to be when lawsuits really started to take off in this country, but I could be wrong. It's sad how people hurt themselves on someone else's property, and then tries to file suit against that homeowners. People are hesitant to invite new friends to their property for fear of being sued if they get hurt.

But she never wanted to sue McDonalds at first since she acknowledges her mistake. But when you think about it, her coffee was past the boiling point of water. Who drinks coffee at that temperature?

The thing is -- most of these lawsuits aren't originated by an individual. It's plaintiffs' lawyers walking up and down grocery store aisles figuring out what they can sue companies over. They then find someone who can represent the suit and claim "damages".

Also, the TGIF potato skins snacks have been around for years, too. Funny how this lawsuit comes about now. Probably been the same ingredients for years, too.

The US has by far the most idiotic laws in the entire world, when a random person can sue a company for millions of dollars for a logo or similar. I´m sure the persons doing this went through an absolutely horrible ordeal and had to spend years in therapy to get over it. So yeah... well worth a few million in compensation, poor idiot.

The one that cracks me up, is the story about a woman, who bought a (paper) cup of coffee in a fast food restaurant, drove off in her car WITH A CUP OF PIPING HOT COFFEE WEDGED BETWEEN HER LEGS and successfully contested in court, that the restaurant had not added a disclaimer on the cup not to do what she did, when she inevitably scolded herself. As painful as that undoubtedly was, it is self evident that your genital area is generally not the best place to store a cup of hot liquid. Her case would have been dismissed in my country.

This is almost as dumb as that time a guy broke into another mans house, tried to rob him, got injured, then sued the homeowner for his bills/pain and suffering. And won.

There was also a guy that broke into someone's house and got locked in the garage while the family was on vacation. He sued and won.

But shouldn't we be holding corporation accountable for lying to us? Setiously wtf is potato skins made of if its not potatoes. These are not frivoulous lawsuits these are corporations actively gaslighting people because we have the audacity to ask that they stop lying to us. This same bullshit happened when that poor woman sued mcdonalds over the hot coffee. Try actually reading the full context of the story. She got 3rd degree burns and had to be hospitalized. Mcdonald set up a smear campaign making it look like a silly money grabbing lawsuit when in fact all she wanted was her medical bills paid and for them to agree to serve coffee at a reasonable temperature.

5 million dollars because of potato skins? That’s (one of) the problem(s) with American law suits: the judges should just send those people home with a warning because of wasting the justice system‘s time

I still find this funny but remember that "stupid lawsuits" are a hurtful stigma. Lawsuits are one of the few defenses people have towards big corporations who will cut corners to save money and misinform by any means they can find as long as it lures you to buy their product. If you still wanna be entertained (I know I do, that's why I'm watching the daily show :D) but wanna know more, go to usvid.net/video/video-KNWh6Kw3ejQ.html . The full episode can be found on truetv or perhaps youtube or google :) the show is super funny, but this clip takes a turn to the serious ;)

i was under the impression that the water people were suing because the water was sourced from a well that specifically was contaminated with all sorts of toxic chemicals and also lots of poop from various sources so like :/ i kinda get it, but at the same time, nestle did purify that water and last i knew, nobody got sick from it, so [shrug]

Is strange how Trevor hates America so much yet chooses to live here, perhaps it is the millions of dollars a year that he is paid he and yet he is always complaining about wealth inequality here. I really hope he actually donates his own money to help and not just criticize others who have much much less then he does.
