Truth

Posted at 11:41 AM on August 29, 2014  

Don’t you guys think it’s ridiculous to support this awareness with using a bucket of water and wasting it? Where other children in other countries are in need of this water supplies. I think it’s more sensible , if this person sends out water supplies to the kids and donate to majority of the people who have cancer I.e. AIDS, etc. instead of this disease which is not even well known. Why waste so much amount of water when you can help others with something more meaningful?

Ay, your right Truth! I sent my 2 gallons of water to Ethiopia and my tax dollars already go to funding cancer, aids, and other prominent diseases, even though Heart Disease kills the most of all. Screw those who suffer from ALS, especially since they cannot prevent their disease like people with cancer, AIDS, and heart disease. Oh, just so you know about the water, I also stopped flushing my toilet because we flush toilets here in the US with drinking water, way more than what is “wasted” in the Ice Bucket challenge. I also protested swimming because that is wasted drinking water being used for recreation. I just feel so bad for living – it was hot and I dumped water on my head. 20 more lashes for my back for wasting water.

On the bright side, at least we don’t have a Diving Off A Tall Building Into the Water at Night challenge. I’d hate for that to catch on like all this ice bucketry has!

wasted water? you mean the stuff that covers 80% of the Earth? The stuff that evaporates and falls back down on you over and over again for all of existence? Im pretty sure the only way to waste it is to launch it into space out of orbit….

lame…you waste more drinking water than anyone doing the ice bucket challenge.

1) You and others flush toilets that use drinking water
2) You and others might swim in pools that are filled with drinking water (this is recreational use!)
3) You and others wash dishes with drinking water (again, more waste removal with treated water)
4) You and others shower in drinking water
5) You and others consume more drinking water than is required to sustain life.
6) You and others forget about the water that it takes to raise animals for food.
7) You and others forget that water is part of the hydrologic cycle so even if it is being dumped on someone’s head, it’s going into the ground or evaporating back into the atmosphere. At least it’s not contaminated with feces or other wastes!
8) You and others forget that when we choose to do one thing, we choose not to do something else. So what you are saying is stop donating to ALS or other charities fighting diseases and give money overseas to improve global water quality. Sanitation improves water quality, so stop crapping and dumping wastes in the rivers!
9) You and others forget that living generates waste and that you, yourselves, are not perfect.
10) You and others use the ALS IBC as another way to spread negativity. If it upsets you, don’t make stupid observations and comments online, just don’t pay attention.

Diving off a building, Lets say the building was a min of 1 story tall making it 12 feet tall. Diving from a 12 ft tall height at 2am,,, can we guess that drinking was involved alcohol.. Nantucket in Aug is a party town. That be said who in their right mind dives off a building into water that is a BOAT SLIP ?

Is it tragic that 79.8% of the money went to the actual cause while 20.2% went into the pockets of the people that took that money?!

It’s tragic that you haven’t raised anything yourself and are complaining in an article thread about the guy’s death.

It’s tragic you don’t know what you are talking about. Charities still require operating cost. 79% is OUTSTANDING for a charity. Most big time charities only donate about 10%. Do some research before proving your ignorance.

It takes more than diving in to drown. It sounded like he may have broken his neck. Sad…RIP
