In case your shop wants to cut corners and not buy [quarterbaker]’s invention. It always reads 120 degrees F, or whatever temperature is desired…

       Imagine the lawsuits! "I bought your coffee with the intention of pouring it on my husband's genitals and disfiguring him for life, but it was lukewarm, and he just stripped off his trousers and made me look at his fat bottom for the rest of the evening.

       If my original idea were to become baked, and the fast food industry used it as a selling point, then the fakes would, by some nearly-natural law about human nature and economic incentives, quite predictably occur.

Was that a run-on sentence?
