Arrow De perdidos al río

Este refrán quiere decir que una vez que no nos queda otra alternativa, seguimos metidos en el fango. Una vez tomada una decisión, no nos volvemos atrás.
Ej.:
No sigas copiando que te van a pillar.
De perdidos al río
Hay más contextos.

You'll get stuck in the mud.

You'll get stuck in deep weeds.

You'll get caught up in a bind.

De perdidos al río implica que ya estás perdido, y que te vas a perder más, que lo arriesgas todo. Por ejemplo en una apuesta, apuestas mucho dinero y te queda muy poco, y al final decides apostar todo, de perdidos al río, porque ya te da igual, aunque apuestes lo último no va a afectar mucho a tu situación.
