“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”
Shut up already.
The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog.
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection.
As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…
A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier. Her dad has ALS. The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp. And they did. She posted pics.
So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.

LADIES AND VARIANTS, I THINK I JUST FOUND THE ETERNAL ANTHEM.
"make up is false advertisement!"
"i view women as products"
If you went on a few dates with a charming, fit-looking guy, decided to invite him upstairs, and after he took off his shirt he unstrapped a hidden girdle and his massive gelatinous kegbelly rippled forth, you would be pissed too.
did you really just compare a woman putting some powder on her face to a guy literally reshaping his entire body

if u were dating a FBI agent and you dumped him.

I hope the NSA people scanning my blog got a chuckle out of that
honeymoon is an interesting term because an actual moon made of honey would imply space bees which is pretty horrifying
there’s this car where i’m from, known pretty well by people as “the duck car” and i finally saw it and it beats every celebrity sighting
Men and Women, stages of fear
Penis and XY required to be man? False.
Only things required to be a man are:
Notice only 20 shades of gray
It’s been proven that women actually have an acute ability to pick up subtle differences in colors
Then I might be a man because I only see like eight colors in all that mess…
thats probably also because like 1/12 men have some sort of color vision deficiency while only 1/255 women do so
This turned out more interesting than I thought it’d be… Wow.
