How dare you!

Don't wear jewelry on a boat. Don't at with chain.
There's a few things going on here...

"LiLo" has been a long term spoiled brat celebrity ... DUI, drunken brawls, purposefully exposing herself in a manner that normally gets people arrested....
All the worst stereotypes of spoiled brat celebrity, she saw as goals.

So its hard to have sympathy for her about much of anything.

The initial story said she lost half her FINGERS...
Then it got toned down to lost half a finger...
Now its at... she had the finger mangled but it was able to be sewn up and should heal with minimal lasting impact.

Not applauding that she got injured.
But really... in the grand scheme she's not even hurt that bad.

If Queen of the drama queens wasn't involved... nobody would have heard about it.

I've wrapped worse with duct tape.

Despicable, turtle. (Not deplorable). Despicable.

Mark,
I agree its not right to kick someone when they are down. If you were an American you would have a slightly different perspective. People are not making fun of here because she is an actress, it is because she is one of the biggest personal wrecks we as Americans have watched in a while. As a once promising or at least cute actress, she has only appeared in tabloids, tabloid TV and the news in the last decade as a result of her bad behavior. We are used to seeing her in the news because of her own actions, some people find it humorous because this time it happened on a boat.

I hope this injury does not affect her comeback.

She's a kid who has been exploited for your entertainment and your sublimation. Get a life, if you had any real compassion for her, you'd be happy to hear that she was spending time on the water.

Come not here if you have already spent the best of yourself

Re: Lindsey Lohan loses half her finger trying to anchor

Yeah, but....

Here, for all we know, she was a sailor doing a sailor's job, and got hurt. I've been there. Sailors (including those with sketchy pasts) are prone to stick up for each other.

So let's try that for starters.

Re: Lindsey Lohan loses half her finger trying to anchor

I think the world would be a better place if more people had the attitude of "markofsealife" . . . . I hold this truth to be self evident . . .

Too many threads in this forum have taken really weird turns this week.
