    Hopefully they go through the newest internet trend besides dumping ice on their head and light themselves on fire.

    They should act like women on message boards instead.

    It's intended to raise awareness for ALS research, asshole.

    Which you probably already know and are trying to be "edgy" with this thread like a typical faggot.

    Fuck off regardless.

    ALS is the absolute cruelest thing I've ever seen... Jesus. Especially of the person is relatively young

    Nothing really. It was just a 29 year old ALS victim's creative way of raising awareness and money to help find a cure.

    No different than a yellow ribbon showing support for deployed servicemen.

    What exactly does "raising awareness" do anyways? It does NOTHING. It's just another fachackta stunt to try to show that social media actually means something. Which it doesn't. This is just like NFL players wearing pink for "awareness" of breast cancer. WGAF WGAS.

    I've done it twice. I know for a fact 5 of the people I've "called out" donated a total of 7500 dollars to the ALSA.

    Who knows how much was then donated by the people they called out, people who watched the videos, etc.

    The bottom line is countless people are way more aware and contributing to the elimination of maybe the worst disease there is.

    Thankfully they're not all cynical douche bags like you.

    Do you belong to a fire department? The first I heard of any of this was from a firefighter in Maine back in May, before I even saw it as a mainstream social media thing. He and his buddies were all challenging other regional fire departments to participate, so I just thought it was a firefighter thing. It was not until this week that I saw it outside of that realm.

    People are doing something to raise money to fight an awful disease. They aren't making anyone else do it, they aren't doing it in your living room or your office. I think "Live and Let live" should be your answer.

    Not a firefighter, but in my line of work I come across a lot people suffering through the nastiness this awful disease brings. :(

    I think it is a good trend, but my concern is that at some point it gets so overhyped that it backfires. The trend itself becomes the focus and the ALS fundraising point of it is lost.
