deAR SIR, HAVE YOU SEEN MY WIZARD?
WHAT IS THIS STRANGE PLACE
So lately the only thing I’ve been seeing is how fun it is to do the bucket challenge. Everywhere I see on facebook or instagram I see people commenting on how funny it is to see someone get soaked, and most people are accepting this challenge thinking it’s just a hype, however, it actually isn’t.
The ALS bucket challenge is actually a challenge made to research Amyothropic Lateral Sclerosis. And what is this, exactly? In simple terms, it’s a disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal chord. However, this isn’t the only type of sclerosis. To name another, there’s also one called Multiple Sclerosis, which is inflammation of your muscles which damage the nerve cells, once again, of your brain and spinal chord.
Do you know how long the life span is for people suffering of sclerosis? An average of five to ten years, in some cases, even up to two years is the limit.
Personally, my father suffers of Multiple Sclerosis, and I’m sure I’m not the only person on this planet who knows someone or is related to someone that suffers from one of these diseases. They aren’t well known and not many people have it, but, in the case of ALS, two people out of hundred thousands die each year. It may not be a lot, but there’s no actual functioning cure for sclerosis.
This is where the bucket challenge is important. The bucket challenge was made not for people to laugh about it or just do it because it seems fun, but it was made to 1) raise awareness and 2) help fund the research taken place to find a cure for sclerosis.
If you want to learn more about what ALS is exactly, here is the official website for the ALS campaign [x].
Hopefully, the next people that do the ice-bucket challenge do it with a new perspective and goal in mind!

When a fic is so good you have to take a break in order to roll around on your bed and flail your limbs everywhere
This actually happens
Dude these two eagles were fighting mid-air and got stuck. They crash landed at an airport and both survived.
How hardcore is that? Look at their faces tho.
Its like “I swear to GAWD Jerry”
If this isn’t the best metaphor for congress I don’t know what is.
if english isn’t your first language but you think and dream in english and sometimes have to mentally translate from english to your first language when speaking it as a consequence of your consistent exposure to the internet clap your hands
