What is going on in the world of social interaction

Women gives birth, wakes up without arms or legs

True or False?

This must be the most dugg item on Digg that I have seen since I have been on Digg/ 10655 diggs, 380 comments… and what is more interesting is that this could be another Digg controversy of a item dugg up like this that exaggerated the story. She didn’t just wake up without limbs, she had be given the option to keep them and die or take them off and possibly live.

Here is the original Digg story quote below:

A young lady goes to the hospital to give birth and wakes up without arms or legs. The hospital refuses to explain why they left her as a multiple amputee. In a letter, they wrote that she would have to sue them to find out what happened. She can’t even carry her newborn child. Help bring attention and digg it up, please.

Now here is the the same story, but with a better explanation:

The CORRECT story about the woman who lost her arms and legs

Now that got 4500+ diggs and around 140 comments… which begs the question… does diggers like drama more than news?

There is a difference when you go to Digg vs going to Slashdot or Netscape. I find Digg more entertaining, Slashdot more informative and Netscape… somewhere closer to entertaining than informative but its defiantly a middle child of Digg and Slashdot.

Well, its your call. Did she wake up with no limbs or was there more to the story?
