Boogers? Pig's blood? T-Rex semen? Hitler's rotted entrails?

Or are we talking double rainbows? Sunshine mixed with clean sheets? PUPPY BREATH?!

I need to know. It's for science.

At first, I thought it was filmed in front of his summer cottage.

The better news, from CBC:

 

 

It began as a competitive pursuit among professional golfers to draw awareness to ALS. Now the "Ice Bucket Challenge" has swept North American social media and is translating into millions of dollars in new donations to battle the disease.

The ALS Association said Monday it has received $15.6 million in donations since July 29, an eight-fold spike over the $1.8 million donated during the same period last year. 

The association said this summer's donations have come from existing donors as well as more than 300,000 new donors.

This whole things makes me proud of the internet and viral videos, which I didn't believe was possible before this.

Your mothers awesome t, I haven't been a member here long enough to have known of the situation until now, but I hope you're doing well.

I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Does anyone else think he should play for Anaheim with his stylized DB logo? Totally looks like a duck foot.

She is beautiful.  I can't believe she's 75.

My principal liked the idea, but after his predecessor challenged him the next day, he went way above and beyond, roping in several other administrators to do it in a BIG way and donate $1,000. Video is on the school homepage, www.masd.info

I, and any other brave faculty members, will be doing it Tuesday during lunch of our inservice.

I hope the ALS foundation is able to transition this from a viral internet sensation to a yearly event.

Our faculty just did it, I'm the one towards the end of the line with the Dream Theater shirt. Over $350 so far, staff can donate until Friday. Not as good as the administration with the front bucket loader but still for a good cause. The video (and the administration's) is on the school web page, www.masd.info
