    I think thats the point, so you get that cold you feel like you have ALS and can't move.


    But Charlie Sheen did it better

    Melbourne is hosting a world record attempt at one of our sporting stadiums for the most people doing the ALS (called MND or motor neuron disease is AUS) challenge tonight. Over 3k people have signed up, and more expected to just rock up. Should be fun.

    P.S. I really expected Charlie to have heaps of little bags of white powder in his bucket. LOL
    Cheers,
    Rowan

    Good stuff firebug. That one will take some topping. Sounded like it was pretty cold.

    Some mates of mine did the challenge. Thought it wasn't a bad effort.

    I have done the challenge and found it refreshing.


    I am a guy who does not mind turning off the hot water before the shower finishes so pouring a bucket of ice water over my head for charity did not seem like a bad thing to do, lucky for me the weather was fine on the day I done mine.


    I did decide to donate money to a charity that is close to my heart, I think if any charity that can benefit from this it would be great.


    As anything here, if there is no picture or video then it did not happen.

    I must say I am still waiting for 2 of my nominations to do it, time to put the pressure on them.
