Anyone doing the ice bucket challenge?

Recommended Posts

re. the "childish" point, perhaps in this context it is - though it's for a worthy cause, raising money for ALS, so nothing wrong with that as far as I can see (unless you count the abuse of the lav mics - though I'd think the sound crew would know what was going on and would mic accordingly - ie. I used an undercover sprayed with medical spray plaster to temporarily waterproof a lav mic that I knew was going to get sprayed with a fire hose once and the mic came through unscathed ) ...

 

Russians have been doing this for years - in sub zero temperatures ... Apparently it gets the kidneys working and is good for your general health.

My fiancee has been put up to it by her kids, since there has been ALS in her family... and said she'll challenge me, as soon as she warms up again.

 

ALS is real, and the charity is worth sponsoring. Besides, it's been in her family... and in my late wife's family, which means my kids have to be careful.

 

(BTW, there was a claim a few years ago that Lou Gehrig had something other than ALS. Latest I've heard is that this was disproven -- as well as can be done, this many years later -- and he really did have it.)
