    Miss World finalist Mariana Bridi da Costa loses hands and feet | The Sun |News

    Normally, I'm anti-celebrity news, but this was on Drudge this morning.

    I guess I can't help but wonder--since being pretty is simultaneously such an advantage and so sought after a quality to many women, as well as being so prized by men...who's worse off? This chick with no extremities, or an ugly hambeast with ten fingers and ten toes?

    I think for the purposes of my curiosity, I'm assuming that the intelligence of both is dead average.

    I'll believe it when I see a real news agency report it. The Sun isn't exactly the pinnacle of factual reporting. They're like one step above The National Enquirer.

    Y'know, I didn't even consider that. But it got me curious, and:

    FOXNews.com - Model Loses Hands, Feet to Severe Infection - Health News | Current Health News | Medical News

    I know, I know, cue "Faux News" jokes, but it certainly appears to be real given the number of news.google results for her name.

    Well Fox is definitely more trustworthy. And with that, I think it's terrible this happened to someone.

    It's a tragedy to happen to anyone, let alone a 20 year old who has a great future in front of her. Hope she'll be able to pull through this ok.

    It makes me sad that something like this wasn't caught sooner and it kept going until sepsis set in. It's the same story with diabetic amputees.

    Losing both hands and feet has got to be shit, not matter who you are.

    As to who's worse off, ugly chick or hot chick with no extremities I'd have to say the hot chick. She's going to be dependent on other people for the rest of her life, whereas the ugly chick can go off do her thing, climb Everest and do whatever whe wants to make herself happy.

    Or she could always resort to a paper bag.

    Not to mention that the hot chick will likely turn into an ugly one. What is the incentive to stay in shape, and get all done up?

    Well, for the time being, I say the hot chick with no hands or feet. I mean, assuming the sepsis is gone.
