Freeze to cure disease.
Now, half of you are all so busy wearing ice helmets that you don't even know why you're doing it. I heard one person say "ASL". So I did some reading up on this ALS, because I had no idea exactly what it was either.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Otherwise known as Lou Gehrig's disease. It's one of the motor neuron diseases, which, to put it in layman's, say goodbye to voluntary movement of your arms, legs and the muscles in your face, and that's leaving a hell of a lot of description out. But that's all you really need to know to be scared. To be honest, this is one beastly mother of a disease!
But what's it to me? What good will ice on my head do?
I've got news for you: NOTHING.
FREEZING YOUR HEAD WON'T CURE DISEASE.
Revelation of the century!
But it has gone so viral that buckets of ice are becoming buckets of awareness.
So drop the damn bucket, drop it over your head if you have to, but then you need to pick up your bloody computer and DONATE $100. If you can't donate that much, donate that two dollars you're about to spend on your coffee. Take the lunch money from your kids and make them a damn sandwich for one day. But for God's sake, people! ICE IS NOT ENOUGH!
I will tip ice over my head this week, despite recovering from a chest infection, because the ice-tipping is starting to piss people off to no end. People are complaining that if they see one more Ice Bucket Challenge they will shut down their Facebook account!
Great. Get pissed. Talk about. Tweet about it. Whinge and carry on about it. But while you're doing that, and after you've tipped ice over your head, don't forget to donate! Let's not let the true message drown under a sea of ice.
I now nominate YOU! Yes, you reading this post! I nominate you to donate $100 (or your lunch money). AND tip water over your head. Because no one should have to die from something we CAN fight to find a cure for.
Now get to it, and let's blast this ALS out of the proverbial ice water!
Who gives a shit?
