Ice bucket nonsense, part one.

Nope, not doing it. And here’s why:

1. I don’t do peer pressure. It’s a step away from bullying; I value individuality too much to subscribe to it .

2. With specific regard to this: I hold two volunteer positions where I donate my time and skills, as well as make monetary donations to charities that are important to me. If the main focus of this is giving, check me off as done. If the main point of this is learning about ALS, I’ll go read, and I hope all of the wet folk join me.

3. Roughly 1 in 10 people in the world do not have access to clean water. Lack of clean water kills kids. I’m not wasting it.

4. The drought in California is setting records. They grow food there, and I like food. Send the water to a farm there.
