As you may- or may not know, recently the professors were dragooned into this whole ALS Ice Bucket Thing. Here we are making fools of ourselves for a good cause. It was surprisingly refreshing (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1k3PJb4Cc7I).
(I must point out, for the sake of clarification, that it was the being doused with ice water that was refreshing. The making fools of ourselves is a rather regular occurrence, sadly).
If you wish to contribute, you don’t even have to get wet. Here is the ALS’ own page outlining a superfluity of ways that you can give them money (https://secure2.convio.net/alsa/site/Donation2;jsessionid=DDA26DD0B54D3BB1238A07F70D482996.app296b?df_id=27420&27420.donation=form1). Be a sport (by which I mean be someone unusual), and send ’em a few bucks.
