The billionaire nerd/emiritus response to ALS cold showers. Can't wait to see Elon Musk's state-of-art tech contraption.

I'm not really sure what this is but maybe we ecomodders could do something similar ?

How about we do this a video it, and each one donates towards clean drinking water to those who don't have it ?

I only post this as an idea - I'm prepared to dunk!

Confused by this, however why not - I'll dunk and have it videoed if it means a kid somewhere has safe water, how is this bad ? I'm not a beach body (quite the opposite) but who cares - we come in all shapes and sizes.

I don't know how to organise this online so I put it out there.

How about you Mcrews ? Its a bit of water (albeit ice cold) only ? If sponsored some kid and/or family gets safe water.

Win win.

Come on in, the water is freezing...

Does this really make any money or is it similar to taking your first selfie?

Not that it isn't a good cause, but I was really taken aback at how phony gates came across. There wasn't ANY ice in the bucket, so that was a copout, and what is with the propane torch applied randomly to the thing?

If you do this, I expect to see ICE, and lots of it And don't bother pretending to "engineer and build" some cheezy device.

The 24 hour response...Elon Musk's shower was kid-friendly (his 5 sons) but tech underwhelming. The haterz should know that the viral hashtag #icebucketchallenge or viral altruism has already raised $1.35 million dollars for the ALS Association's largest charity. Last year in the same time period they only raised $22,000.

So thats the secret? Put it on the internet with a hash tag?

What did you expect from Bill Gates?
