      Every year on the coldest day of winter Russian cut in the ice aim a crosshair and swim in it. This is called Ice Hole Challenge

      P.S. Every summer, we also take part in Ice Shower Challenge. Because the government is turned off the hot water for two weeks for inspection and repair plumbing.

      I know few people who used Sea Water for Ice bucket challenge and later even donated money. There are always exceptions, but on the larger number of people this meme holds true

      Does accepting ice bucket challenge in USA causes that there is smaller amount of water in Africa? No -.- Water in developed countries is cheap and in Africa expensive for no reason. If you believe that this meme has some point, then fill your bucket with water, fly with it to Africa, give it to people there and return to your home. I guess that this somehow explain why pouring ice water for Bucket Challenge is not a stupid thing, because of "wasting" water. Even small amount of money, which can be donated by people is of much higher value than few litres of water from your bathroom.

        I never said that I think it works that way. I just said that kingofnumbers's pic reminded me of that one.

        And anyway, it's funny as a "I liked the way I phrased it better" moment.

        Yes the water is cheap right now, but people must respect water and not waste it if they want to keep the water cheap in the future. maybe Ice bucket challenge alone is not a problem but I'm not talking only about Ice bucket challenge , there's a lot of other ways that people are wasting water with.
