Don't you have to make a video of yourself doing it first, then you nominate 3 others once you've done it?

If you want to start the thread, make the video

Don't nominate me though, Im not playing, Im ill from the beer and it's about to p1ss down lol

Ive got FB blocked at my router, can't stand the place lol

Actually it won't block properly due to some HTTPS thing, haven't looked into it, but I broke it enough to force my browsers into thinking there is something wrong with the cert and won't allow access

If you have a non FB link to said video I'll happily watch you drown yourself in ice water lol, just thought it would be fun to have a G3D IBC thing going, although not joining in myself sounds a bit hypocritical now - next beer day maybe lol

It just won't die. I'm waiting for the "Harlem Shake" ice bucket internet fad, time immemorial. It's not even about the cause, it's about a sad attempt at following trends, with the worst even using it just to boost their site traffic or youtube channel views. The "challenge 3 other people!" is nothing but chain email tactics.

Why couldn't it had been the Haribo Sugarless Gummy Bear Challenge?

We had all the kids and nephews and nieces do it for their wee grandad(Dad)who passed away a few weeks ago due to lung cancer.

First time in 5 months we have found reason to laugh, it was a great day, their wee grandad would have been so proud of them, and they got all their friends to do it also for their loved ones and so on, help raise quite a bit in donations between them all doing it, bless all their wee hearts.

Thought I would avoid it as I doubted any of my friends would do it, one unfortunately did and nominated me, told him it would not be happening.

The deal is to donate to charity or do that crappy narcism thing. Nice to see so many people go for showing off how cool and hip they are rather than helping others
Oh, and don't nominate me. I'm already a regular charity donor.

Yeah it seems to have taken over their FB pages, all their pals and family doing it in the name of their lost loved ones, brings a smile to you when you sit and watch them and read all their FB pages on it.

Kids are so bloody smart these days at times and in tune with what is going on around them, i was as thick as a plank at their ages. lol

I've been nominated twice and twice refused.

I do my own bit every month for charity without being out of pocket more.

Glad i don't have a fb account.
More,maybe that thing started on good premise ,raising money for a cause,but somehow i feel that lost all that and became something else.
One can donate to charity,volunteer without blowing one's own trumpet.
