Ice bucket challenge - Frankie Edgar fail

Noble cause, indeed to raise awareness for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease and certainly Edgar had the edge over the others with his innovative contribution.

Everyone is missing the point of it I think the idea is to get ice OR donate money. All these people taking the bucket of ice are kinda being cheap asses or am I the one missing something.

I just recently went on a rant about this on facebook because I was nominated by a few people and I didn't do the ice bucket thing I actually donated money and everyone got mad at me for doing the right thing.

Almost all ice bucket videos I've seen are people who donated and wanted to nominate others. Charlie Sheen, for example donated 10k instead. His video was a little different and people still had a go at him for it.

Funny comment in Frankie's vid:

'LOL.. hope your not on medical suspension now for a bucket injury haha'

A lot of these people are still donating. You don't have to do only one or the other.

These higher profile individuals doing this and making it go viral has almost certainly got the attention of many more people too that will donate.

The problem is with some of the yahoos that are just doing this for fun and not evening mentioning ALS etc... Some people just don't get the point I guess...

So to get attention for a disease that's already well known, they are dumping water on themselves? Seems weird to me.

Anywho, people will do whatever they wish, hopefully these rich guys are donating along with needlessly dumping water on themselves.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a well known disease? Maybe you mean among medical community.
