It so happens that relatively recently a countrywoman of mine got disfigured by acid. I'm not gonna make any social or legal commentary, instead directing you to Google up the name "Lucia Annibali" perhaps together with the keywords "sfigurata" and/or "acido" (disfigured, acid) if you can't find what you're looking for.

Holy moly, you're Italian? Your English is less exceptionable than just about every native speaker…

And, more on-topic, that bit about some of the first work done on her being to allow her to close her eyes…yikes.

*aside glance to "Location: Imola, Italy"* Nah, Cook's totally Malaysian. And I highly doubt you've been exposed to anywhere close to "just about every native speaker". Hyperbole never helped anything. :P

Hiring people to track down and throw acid at your ex...That's clearly a reasonable thing to do. She seems to have gotten off rather easier than others, at least. Not a flawless reconstruction but kudos to the medical folk nonetheless.

Huh, I didn't even know that was a displayable thing.

Can't tell if serious…

Hell, I thought I was taking it conservatively by adding "just about".

@Silentcook: I was wondering why the English-language media didn't seem to have anything on her, when acid throwing on women is raised somewhat more frequently in the press when it happened in the Indian sub-continent or Indochina region.

On the lady herself, it would be very powerful if she met other such victims from other countries. "Look, acid attacks don't only happen in poor/backward countries. It happened to me, in Italy."

It happened to Harvey Dent in America...What's that? Yes, I am required to reference the Batman universe at every opportunity.

Would be a huge help in particular to victims that didn't recover so well. Surely there are some who could use the boost.

I find the media from ANY country to be self-centered to the point of tunnel vision, but to be fair I live in a fairly unimportant and pretty buffoonish country, so I can't throw too much blame around. Nor can I be proud of the fact that "vitriolize" is a word here.

Anyway, I was just bringing the visuals to your attention as relevant to the original topic.

Well, I can say that at least your former president is always good for a headline in my country as well ;-)

To think that our former president had to abdicate over allegations that he'd let a friend pay his hotel bill woth 720€...

Same here. :) Nothing makes us feel better about ourselves than the reminder that at least that guy isn't our former president. :lol:

I don't know why, but the hairspray thing reminded me of back in 6th grade someone basically Maced me with Axe bodyspray, causing me to fall and whack my head on the ground, then lurch forward and hit the lockers.
I somehow managed to avoid a concussion.

I once got set on fire by a dumb kid playing with stuff that shouldn't be played with...I'd have been angrier about it but I'm rather grateful that I could have the experience. Only in retrospect, of course...In the moment, it was agonizing and pretty terrifying. No lasting physical scars though.
I love the interpretation of Pac-Man where he's a just a lowly worker retrieving golf balls left all over the course by the rich masters and the ghosts are all previous workers who got conked on the head and killed by incoming golf balls in the line of duty.
