Pennsylvania man sues Google founders for $5 billion over secret code in his social security number

Even with all the serious lawsuits surrounding Google every now and then there's still a case that seems just ... off. The latest suit against Google and its founders stems from a man who cared enough to handwrite all 23 pages of his complaint.

One Dylan Stephen Jayne of Pennsylvania filed suit against “Google Internet Search Engine Founders” in Pennsylvania Civil court, seeking the small amount of $5 billion dollars. Jayne claims that his safety is in jeopardy because of Google releasing personal information about him.

Jayne asserts that individuals looking to perform acts of terrorism could obtain his information from Google, making it more likely that he will be detained wrongfully in the future. Jayne’s statement of claim is that, “Dylan Steven Jayne, plaintiff, has a social security number that when the social security number is turned upside down in its entirety it is a scrambled code that does spell the name Google.”

Jayne goes on to state that the United States Department of Justice is heading the investigation into the allegations of crimes against humanity by the Google Search Engine founders and that he was illegally detained as a juvenile in the Milford, Pennsylvania County Court of Common Pleas. Jayne also claims, amongst other things, that he was placed in jail for two-years under misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest and public drunkenness.

Luckily for Google, Jayne is willing to accept the first check in the amount of $250,000 and a second check for the remaining balance. 

Submitted for evidence, Jayne included virtually every piece of his private information; including his credit card, library card and bank overdraft statements.

At the time of publication, "Dylan Stephen Jayne" revealed no hits on Google.  "Dylan Jayne" revealed approximately 200 hits regarding this suit.  In time, Jayne's lawsuit may become a self-fullfilling prophecy -- documents from this case are quickly being circulated through the Internet.  While it may not consistute crimes against humanity, Jayne's personal information is quickly becoming everyone else's business.

Last time I checked, I bought coffee to drink. I don't buy coffee and have a good time sitting around waiting for it to cool. I buy that coffee and I hate waiting to drink it. At the temperature at which is was served is unsafe for human consumption and is dangerous, as proven by the fact she got 3rd degree burns. If she had put it up to her lips and drank it, it would have burned her throat.

McDonald's claimed in their defense that they serve coffee that hot because people intend on consuming later when they get home or get to work. This was proven untrue during discovery in which McDonald's own market research shows that most people who buy coffee intend to consume it immediately in their car while they drive. If people want to drink coffee right away, why serve it too hot to drink at all? That shows McDonald's is negligent in their serving of coffee.

And the jury found the defendant to be 20% responsible for her own injuries, which is why the damages were 20% less than the $400,000 awarded. This isn't a murder case where people are 100% guilty or innocent. In cases of negligence both parties frequently contribute a % to the incident.
