I´m reading a novel and the main character says: "It´s pretty lame when even getting drunk doesn´t help at all." (he´s very sad and trying to forget a previous relationship) What does it "lame" mean in this context? I found at a dictionary that lame means = simple, someone who doesn't understand what is going on. and i´m kind of confuse by this meaning, can i use Stupid instead of simple? For example: "It´s pretty stupid when even getting drunk doesn´t help at all." Thanks in advance.
