Hey, snarky cynics and people missing the point? Since this ice bucket thing took off, it's raised about 13 million dollars. Motor neuron diseases like ALS are no joke and they're one of the reasons why we have things called "hospices" where people go to die slow, painful and undignified deaths.
That somehow makes it less stupid?
I hate AIDs, but red ribbons on a lapel are still stupid. I hate government censorship, but making my twitter icon black is still stupid. Good on these participants for not taking themselves too seriously and allowing this -- but it's still dumb.
I'd rather be a snarky cynic than "guffaw guffaw that dude what is rich done got ice poured on his noggin!"
