Lauren Scruggs Chopping Her Own Hand Off....

In the mornings, while the kids are getting ready for school, I usually watch Good Morning America. I don't watch much news during the day so this is kind of my way of catching up on things going on in the world. I remember a few months ago hearing about a model named Lauren Scruggs who was taking a ride on a small airplane and when she got out of the plane she turned around right into the blades of the propeller and lost a hand and an eye. Of course, at first I thought it was a horrible thing to happen but I also thought how embarrassing it had to be for her to be a complete dumbass for the whole world to see. I mean, seriously, if I were that close to the blades, I'd damn sure make sure I stayed far away from them and knew exactly where they were! Made it funnier because she already looks like the typical airhead blonde model.

I hadn't heard about her for awhile until yesterday morning. They announced that she was in the middle of suing the pilot's insurance company. Then today they said that she settled out of court, and that the insurance company had originally offered her $200,000 (which she refused) but they offered her enough to get her to settle out of court and I'm sure it had to be quite a bit MORE than $200,000!

Why is this legal??? So anyone can be a complete dumbass and injure themselves because they weren't paying attention, and then GET money in return?? Who the fuck made up these dumbass laws? I mean, if I walked into propeller blades, I sure as Hell wouldn't expect to get money for it! She had already exited the plane! Why should the pilot's insurance have to pay her a dime and why the fuck does she think she DESERVES that much money???? Yeah, our judicial system is sooooo screwed up, ya think???

Do you think she deserves to get money??

I guess every blonde has a gold lining. If I did that, the pilot'd sue me afterwards for something like stress related illness. Let me guess, she's pretty, right?
