Post $28 Billion Cigarette?
Reply
Posted 2002-10-05, 02:12 AM
A 64-year old woman sued Philip Morris (the tobaco company) for $28 BILLION usd since she got lung cancer, and they hadn't "marked their cigarettes with enough warning labels". She won the case, so now she is about half as rich as Bill Gates.

Seriously, there are millions of people who have contracted lung cancer from tobaco, so why should she ALONE get that much money?

Thats exatcly right, it just shows how lazy and stupid american legel systems can be at times. Shes not the only fat person that contract lung cancer cause there white trash ass diddnt read the package and are just now saying "UHHH lung CANCER? wtf is cancer and why do i have it" . In fact, they should pay the governement for being so dam stupid, and the govt. should use that money to go door to door and tell every fucking person that ciggerates are bad. And then if someone trys to sue, we can punch them really hard in the face for being stupid.

But the guys who would go around punching people in the face would have to be government employees, right? Medical benefits, dental, okay pay.. It would be an interesting job to apply for.

gotta dissagree penguin
i look at it this way
shes unfortunate because she got the cancer but
smart/smooth/how many other words can discribe her because she cashed in
i think she is smart i dont think a fat retard (grav) would be abl,e to pull that much money from this incident
