The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is a meme and one of the latest trends currently festering every social networking site on the internet. The point of the challenge is to waste ice-cold water by dumping it on somebody's head for literal shock value.

It was created to raise awareness for some illness that nobody suffers from and nobody has ever heard of. Likewise, nobody is interested in hearing about the disease, as they only care about seeing their favorite idol increase their chances to catch pneumonia, or some idiot kid accidentally get nailed in the head by a tractor or bucket full of water.

It's worth noting that more people have died from this challenge than people who actually die from the disease it aims to save your life from. On the other hand, it can be argued that nothing of value is lost in the case of the challengers since natural selection must be involved in order for them to actually die from something where the only real criteria is that their heads should get wet.

Rules

If at any point you're challenged to have ice water poured on your head, you are presented with two options:

  • Do it
  • Donate $100

Failure to comply will result in contracting the illness that they're raising awareness for. Symptoms of this disease include difficulty speaking and reduced motor abilities, however those types of handicaps wouldn't have much of an effect on someone like you, now would they?

If you decide to participate in the challenge, you must publicly challenge three more people to keep this fad going viral. For good measure, you should only challenge the elderly and children in Africa.

Charlie Sheen gave a twist to the challenge. The money was donated to help ALS tigerblood charities.

The Reality of It

The ice bucket challenge is a perfect example of how a money-hungry scheme becomes successful by capitalizing on the current progression of technology and its accompanying trend of social networking. In this case, disguising it as innocent fun, even though this "fun" has resulted in the deaths of several people already, including teens who will now never get to grow up and experience adult life because they wanted to outdo all the other attention-starved fucktards participating in the trend.

Even if people choose to get wet instead of pony up a Benjamin, their talentless video is still bringing attention to the scheme and thus encouraging other people to kill themselves on camera.

Keep in mind that every time you see a famous person accepting the challenge, it means that they would rather give themselves a cold than pay a measly $100. Yes, they would rather embarrass themselves on camera for a cheap laugh than shell out a hundred bucks. If famous people don't want to spend money helping this cause, then why should you?


   
 
Ice Bucket Challenge is a total pyramid scheme. If everybody keeps nominating three people, we will run out of people to nominate.
