    Bucket Head dead

    The man who served as the inspiration for the hugely successful Ice Bucket Challenge has died from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis at the age of 46.
    Anthony Senerchia Jnr struggled with the illness, which is commonly called motor neurone disease in the UK, for 14 years but lived more than ten years beyond the doctor’s prognosis.
    Mr Senerchia Jnr, who was from Pelham in New York, worked hard to raise awareness for motor neurone disease and was behind the viral ice bucket challengewhich raised over two hundred million dollars for research into the illness.
    "He worked tirelessly to raise awareness for ALS and was directly responsible for the world-renowned Ice bucket challenge," reads his obituary on Pelham’s Funeral Home.
    "Throughout his fight, Anthony maintained a positive attitude and would say 'It's not what we take from life, but what we give back to others is what ultimately defines us’".
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    Fuck him. People were doing it for other causes well before he dived in on it.

    I was immediately shocked and saddened, both by the announcement and the way it was announced.....but happily it is not about LT.

    Why would you say that?

    I'm just expressing my ire that he hijacked someone else's idea at the expense of their own fundraising efforts.

    Oh.....my bad. Of course that was a very kind and generous thing to say about someone who worked tirelessly to raise awareness for ALS and who just died.

    I think you are stressed out since the Bali volcano is looking like ruining your upcoming vacation. You've paid for the flight ?

    Explained above and conveniently ignored.

    You have ALS then?

    I assumed it was just a mild case of retardation.

    I may have ALS, actually. Either that or had a very slight stroke.

    I'm getting checked for nerve conduction before Xmas, hopefully.

    Sounds like someone's having a bad day. Time to release some tension before things blow-up in your face.

    Ice bucket challenge. Certainly a challenge to get a boner when watching YouTube videos of contesting birds with wet T shirts completing the challenge .
