Lindsay Lohan has gotten away with everything from kidnapping to DUI! How would the law react if she wasn't famous?

Lindsay Lohan has a way of acting as if she is above the law, and for some reason, the courts seem to agree with her on that! She has been getting away with criminal behavior since 2005 and has only spent two weeks in jail, although she has been sentenced to a total of 391 days in jail since 2007.

She started her unruly behavior in 2005, when she was just 19 years old. In October of that year she crashed her Mercedes into the passenger side of a van that was pulling into traffic in West Hollywood. Lindsay, her passenger and the driver of the van were briefly hospitalized for minor injuries, but she he was not ticketed!

When still underage, she has been seen drinking and using cocaine. She has reportedly stolen diamonds, clothes and Rolex watches during photo shoots. She has violated the terms of her probation countless times and failed to show up at numerous deposition hearings.

She has had eight charges laid against her, but after theft and carjacking and kidnapping and DUI’s and cocaine and parole violations and lying to police and blatantly ignoring the court on countless occasions, Lindsay is yet to serve any decent amount of time behind bars! Where would a non-celeb be after acting like that?


Dwayne Johnson was Tim Burton's second choice to play Willy Wonka! Would that have been a smart move?

Dwayne Johnson was listed as a potential nominee on two occasions – on both the 2003 and 2005 Razzie Award nominating ballots. He was suggested in the Worst Actor category on the 2003 ballot for his role in the film The Scorpion King (2002), and he was suggested again, two years later, in the Worst Actor category of the 2005 Razzie nominating ballot for his performance in the film, Walking Tall (2004). He didn't receive either nomination. In 2006 he finally got a Worst Actor Razzie Nomination for his role in the film Doom (2005).

Despite this, he was still Tim Burton's second choice for the role of Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory! Thankfully, the role went to the incredible Johnny Depp, who has received fifteen ‘Best Actor’ nominations during his career so far!

In an interview with "Entertainment Magazine" he made it clear that he no longer wants to be known as “The Rock” because he has retired from wrestling. He said: "I no longer am a wrestler; I am now pursuing a future as an actor and someday as a director. I am not the Rock. I am Dwayne Johnson".


The first thing Buzz Aldrin did on the moon was take communion, but NASA kept it a secret so they wouldn’t be sued!

Buzz Aldrin was the second man to ever step foot on the Moon. On July 20, 1969 his Apollo 11 mission successfully landed on the Moon and although Aldrin was supposed to be the first person out of the spacecraft, he instead came out second due to awkward positioning. His first action after landing was holding a short religious service.

Aldrin is a Presbyterian, and after landing said, “I'd like to take this opportunity to ask every person listening in, whoever and wherever they may be, to pause for a moment and contemplate the events of the past few hours, and to give thanks in his or her own way.” He then gave himself communion, the first person to ever do so not on Earth.

NASA and Aldrin decided to keep this a secret because of a recent lawsuit that atheist activist Madalyn Murray O’Hair had enacted against them. O’Hair complained against the reading of Genesis on Apollo 8. Her case made it to the Supreme Court and although Aldrin was not allowed to tell anyone that he had taken communion, the government still allowed him to do so.


Some awesome lists!

Bill Murray was once arrested with 10 lb of marijuana in his possession. What is his opinion about legalizing it now?

Bill Murray is somewhat of a comedic legend. For his fans he is more like a mythological figure. He became known for his role in ‘Ghostbusters’ which was the highest-grossing film in 1984. He is now well-known to be almost impossible to get hold of for auditions and chooses his roles very carefully at his own leisure.

When he was recently asked about his opinion on whether marijuana should be legalized, he answered in typical Bill Murray style: “Well that's a large question, isn't it? Because you're talking about recreation, which everyone is in favor of. You are also talking about something that has been illegal for so many years, and marijuana is responsible for such a large part of the prison population, for the crime of self-medication. And it takes millions and billions of dollars by incarcerating people for this crime against oneself as best can be determined… I think the terror of marijuana was probably overstated.”

On 21 September 1970, Bill was arrested by police at Chicago's O'Hare Airport. His crime? Trying to smuggle 10 lb (4.5 kg) of marijuana, which he had every intention to use as an ‘alternative source of income.’ He was convicted and was later sentenced to probation.


'Bohemian Rhapsody' is the most played song on British radio, but what is the song really about?

Freddie Mercury, lead singer of British rock band Queen, wrote most of the famous song "Bohemian Rhapsody" at his home in west London. According to some scholars, the song’s emotions are excessive and the plot is confusing. So what does the song really mean?

According to Chris Smith, Mercury started writing the song in the late sixties, but it was only ready for release in 1975. ‘The New York Times’ felt that the song's most distinct feature is the fatalistic lyrics. Freddie Mercury simply refused to explain the lyrics and the composition. He was only willing to say that the song is about relationships.

Brian May, however, agrees with suggestions that the song indirectly refers to Mercury's personal traumas. He said: "Freddie was a very complex person: Flippant and funny on the surface, but he concealed insecurities and problems in squaring up his life with his childhood. He never explained the lyrics, but I think he put a lot of himself into that song." He said that the band had agreed that the core of a lyric was a private issue for the composer.

Mercury was born Farrokh Bulsara. He was a Parsi born in Zanzibar. When he was 17, Mercury and his family had to flee from Zanzibar for their own safety due to the 1964 Zanzibar Revolution in which thousands of Arabs and Indians were killed.
