 another dumb headcanon: superman is nice to birds because of course he is,
 and helps out birds who are in distress. also he can fly around with them. birds
 see a lot more of superman than they do of most people, basically. the
 unexpected consequence of this is that the crows of metropolis recognize
 superman as a friend. sometimes crows just follow him around like a weird flock
 or try to give him shiny things. but mostly please just imagine luthor trying to
 gloat while threatening superman with kryptonite only to have a crow steal it. or

 What is that?
 Superman followed the direction of Batman's gaze. A crow had landed on the
 rooftop beside them, and dropped a bottlecap near Superman's feet. "Ohl Hey
 Francis. Is that for me?"
 Caw," said Francis
 Do you have a pet crow? Batman asked.
 No, I don't have pets," Superman said as he bent down to retrieve the
 bottlecap
 You named it.
 Not this specific one," Superman explained. "1 just call all the crows Francis.
 ...why
 Caw, caw," said Francis with a flap of its wings
 I don't know. Just calling them 'crow felt rude after a while. l'd name them
 individually but I can't actually tell them apart. Except for Old Francis and One
 Eyed Francis." Superman tucked the bottlecap into a small pocket on the back of
 his pants.
 Why Francis?"
 Superman shrugged. It's gender neutral. I don't want to misgender them just
 because they're birds
 Of course you don't," Batman sighed, looking back out at Metropolis
 Caw," Francis added
 Do you keep dog treats in your utility belt?" Superman asked
 Why would I do that.
 .. in case you meet a dog that needs to know he's a good boy? Superman
 suggested. Batman shook his head, but opened a small pouch on his belt and
 held out a small treat. "See, it was a yes or no question, I don't know why
 everything has to be such a production with you," Superman said as he took it.
 He tossed it over by the bird's feet. "Here you are, Francis. Keep up the good
 work."
 Caw, caw," Francis said. When it realized no more treats were forthcoming, it
 flew away in a fiutter of black wings.
 You're unbelievable," Batman said, shaking his head again.
 Superman took his eyes off the departing crow to look back at Batman, and
 frowned. "You know," he said, "it's really weird seeing you in costume during the

 Don't start."
 It's like seeing your teacher at the mall."

America, Bailey Jay, and Dumb: g If this was another country, we'd have to tell you that this coffee may be hot. Good thing this is Canada okayto: bregma: kevinrfree: charlienight: commanderbishoujo: bogleech: prokopetz: johnlockinthetardiswithdestiel: truthandglory: assbanditkirk: whoa canada 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 fun story about the reason they do that (at least in America) once this lady spilled her McDonald’s coffee on herself and ended up getting like 3rd degree burns and since there was no warning on the cup she was able to claim she didn’t know it would be hot (or at least that hot) and won a lawsuit against McDonald’s for $1 million That’s what the media smear campaign against her would have you believe, anyway. The truth of the matter is that the McDonald’s in question had previously been cited - on at least two separate occasions - for keeping their coffee so hot that it violated local occupational health and safety regulations. The lady didn’t win her lawsuit because American courts are stupid; she won it because the McDonald’s she bought that coffee from was actively and knowingly breaking the law with respect to the temperature of its coffee at the time of the incident. (I mean, do you have any idea what a third-degree burn actually is? Third-degree burns involve “full thickness” tissue damage; we’re talking bone-deep, with possible destruction of tissue. Can you even imagine how hot that cup of coffee would have to have been to inflict that kind of damage in the few seconds it was in contact with her skin?) Yeah I’m tired of people joking about either the “stupid” woman who didn’t know coffee was hot or the “greedy” woman making up bullshit to get money. She was hideously injured by hideous irresponsibility, it was an absolutely legitimate lawsuit and the warning on the cups basically allows McDonalds to claim no responsibility even if it happens again. Every other company followed suit to cover their asses. So they can still legally serve you something that could sear off the end of your tongue or permanently demolish the front of your gums and just give you a big fat middle finger in court. “The label SAID it would be HOT, STUPID.” obligatory reblog for the great debunking of the usual ignorance spouted about this case obligatory mention that the media smear campaign to twist teh facts on this case and get public opinion against the victim was deliberate and fueled by the right wing tort reform movement it was seized upon to limit the rights of consumers to hold giant corporations accountable for wrongdoing watch the documentary Hot Coffee, it lays out all of the facts and examines the response to this case and explains why everything you think you know about this case is bullshit, and explains why tort reform is bullshit in an entertaining and informative manner The woman injured in Liebeck v. McDonald’s Restaurants was 79 years old at the time of her injuries, and suffered third-degree burns to the pelvic region (including her thighs, buttocks, and groin), which in combination with lesser burns in the surrounding regions caused damage to an area totaling a whopping 22% of her body’s surface. These injuries that required two years of intensive medical care, including multiple skin grafts; during her hospitalization, Stella Liebeck lost around 20% of her starting body weight. She was uninsured and sued McDonald’s Restaurants for the cost of her past and projected future medical care, an estimated $20,000. The corporation offered a settlement of $800, a number so obviously ridiculous that I’m not even going to dignify it with any further explanation. The settlement number most often quoted is not the amount that the corporation actually paid; the jury in the first trial suggested a payment equal to a day or two of coffee revenues for McDonald’s, which at the time totaled more than $1 million per diem. The judge reduced the required payout to around $640,000 in both compensatory and punitive damages, and the case was later settled out of court for less than $600,000. Keep in mind that at the time, McDonald’s already had over 700 cases of complaints about coffee-related burns on file, but continued to sell coffee heated to nearly 200 degrees Fahrenheit (around 90 degrees Celsius) as a means of boosting sales (their selling point was that one could buy the coffee, drive to a second location such as work or home, and still have a piping hot beverage). This in spite of the fact that most restaurants serve coffee between 140 and 160 degrees Fahrenheit (60 to 71 degrees Celsius), and many coffee experts agree that such high temperatures are desirable only during the brewing process itself. The Liebeck case was absolutely not an example of litigation-happy Americans expecting corporations to cover their asses for their own stupidity, but we seem determined to remember it that way. It’s an issue of liability, and the allowable lengths of capitalism, and even of the way in which our society is incredibly dangerous for and punitive towards the uninsured, but it was not and is not a frivolous suit. Please check your assumptions and do your research before you turn a burn victim’s suffering into a throwaway punchline. #don’t fricking get me started on Liebeck v.
