Edit2014-08-30 ALS Boobs Challenge

I was challenged by Anatoli Belski. Here is the video:


I nominate Steve Jobs, Osama bin Laden and Jesus Christ. Remember, you have only 24 hours.

While morally unprepared people from all over the world are washing their raw heads with cold water, I am trying to cope with my sadness about the disaster we are all heading for.

Sure, I am glad for researchers, scientists and thieves who will get this raised money, and I have no doubt that this is going to have a positive impact on ALS research too. But how is this going to help globally?

And why ALS? Lets look at what they say:

"It is estimated that ALS is responsible for nearly two deaths per hundred thousand population annually."

Oh, that's why it is so important.


2/100000 ?

That's 0.002%, right?

Don't get me wrong, I am glad that some people who usually spend hundreds of dollars on computer games will now donate 10 bucks for ALS research. But I am not sure if this low-efficiency short-term trend will cause more benefit than harm in a long run. Just imagine, all these noncaring heaps of meat now have a justification for their lives. They've done something potentially useful, now they can peacefully procrastinate till their deaths. It is like no one can shame them anymore.

But shame is good. It makes us not to do silly stuff and for some people it is a great motivation to start doing something smart.

However, some people have no shame:
Surprisingly, all of these videos were removed. What a coincidence.

And some people are just plain stupid:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQlvW0aFnKo – lots of people hurting themselves. Because it is so damn hard to turn a bucket over.

I thought that the days of chain letters are over, but it seems like I did not take into account that there is a new generation of youngsters who don't even know what is a "letter".

Please be conscious.
