Things I don’t understand, and generally don’t like

I wanted to say something about this ALS bucket challenge. First of all, it’s great that people are trying to raise awareness about ALS and are trying to get everyone involved to donate money and help others in need. I’m sure that this challenge has raised money for ALS, which is fantastic. Cheers to all of you that did it and donated. 

Here is what I don’t understand though, and please tell me if you think otherwise, or I have this completely backward. The initial premise of the challenge was, essentially, “dump a bucket of ice on your head or donate the most you can to this charity.” You are doing the challenge to avoid donating the highest amount of money? The charity needs the money more than you need an ice bucket to the head. So….either do a good deed and donate to a charity that needs it, or get out of it by dumping water on your head? I just don’t understand.

Now, like I said, I’m sure it has raised money AND awareness. But can’t we eliminate the premise? Can’t we transform it so the premise isn’t “get out of a good deed, a generous offer, a open heart, by dumping crisp water on our heads.”

If it’s a competition, then make it about who can donate the most. That would be beneficial, and wouldn’t have a completely horrific premise.

Just donate the money.

Then maybe challenge someone to match it or exceed it.

….that’s all. Maybe I’m the only one that feels this way.

One Christmas when I was 7 my parents bought this for me and my little sister. On my mom’s first move she got ‘kidnapped by monkeys’ and she went to the bathroom and started screaming and then my dad told me and my younger sister to run away or they’d get us too.
They found us half way down the block with our jackets on upside down and laughed at our tears.

It’s like Zathura except scary as hell
