ALS Bucket Challenge is a Waste of Water & Time!

philosurfer

ALS Bucket Challenge is a Waste of Water & Time!MOST folks have opted to dump water instead of donating money. That's how it works. I'm sure the statistics wouldn't even be close regarding ice water dumping vs. donations. The ratios would be sad.Further, why not use dirty sewer water? Why use fresh water?

RESOLUTION: The police should be unarmed.

donald.keller

In response to Puggle999's comment on Tickld.com: "You know what's better than both?

HINDI should not be used in India for its development.

gsairam

Hindi might be the official language or national language of India but my question is why Hindi when we use 90 % only English in almost all the various industries , companies, etc .
