Not so much of a challenge if you have taken ice baths before (to prevent soreness). I'm not going to do this regardless of what anyone says to me. If they want it so bad then they better be ready for me to instead challenge them to a 5-min ice bath (for my own laughs).

My preferred ALS charity is TeamGleason anyway.

I guess I'll go for the challenge. (Despite that I take warm showers every now and then). lol.
Also, I really want to have the time to donate.

If something as simple as dumping a bucket of ice-water over your head in other to help ASL it's worth doing. Those who think otherwise just simply don't care.

What am I suppose to think about it really? You could have ice cold water dumped on you or donate 100$ to the charity. I just refuse to care what people do. I love how some people get EASILY ANNOYED by this.

It brings good positive awareness to a disease that 3 months ago, only maybe a few hundred thousand people even knew existed. Now millions, across the world, know about it.

They have raised I think it was up to 100million now? Which is an astounding number for any donation.

I may be a little bit closer to donating towards a disease than most people due to having a handicapped sister, so hearing people say this is all pointless, or even mouthing off about the challenge, kind of upsets me, when I know it's a worthy cause and is working.

I don't mind it that much, even though it gets sort of annoying. Some people do actually do it for attention, which pisses me off. Some people will even forget to explain ALS and where to donate, which makes the whole thing pointless.

I like it, but I think CR might get some sh*t for it since they're located in San Fransisco, California and by now everyone knows California is in a drought and conserve water blah blah blah. I'm guessing flushing the toilet uses more water. To not get sh*t for it I would use beach water.

When it gets too popular it gets haters, its like a weird ass hipster effect or something. "ugh it's too mainstream"

I think it's pretty fun, I mean what's so bad about donating and throwing a bucket of ice water on your head?

Conserving water?

It's like Hollywood movie production asking people to stop damaging the ozone layer while they themselves use tons of explosives on their movies, besides cg effects.

Wasting water is one of the common arguments that haters make and California is their prime example to use to validate their argument.

You're a SoCal resident, right?

Is it true that Californians act like rockstars?
Into yoga?
Surfing?

people act as if donating money is such a difficult thing to do, and it's really a shame .-.
and as far as the ice bucket challenge goes, lighten up. there's no need to be so bitter :/
i donated, and also had ice water dumped all over me, no regrets.
life is too short to be so easily bothered by the most simplest things.
and for those of you who are saying that big named companies and idols are only doing this challenge to make themselves look good or for attention. you may be correct to an extent, but would you rather them do nothing?
everyone seeks attention/gratitude, it just depends on how we go about getting it.
like i said before, don't be so bitter .-. donate, have fun, have a heart .

I live in Huntington Beach the self proclaimed surf city, we have a statue of a surfer and gave the key to the city to Kelly Slater.

So yeah lots of surfers and some yoga, even I skate as well.

No rock stars though, but I was neighbors with Mitch Lucker of suicide silence if that counts. Was a really nice guy btw.
