"So what you're telling me is that you poor a few hundred gallons of water into a whole in the ground, then you mix it with Chlorine, thus making it completely unusable for human consumption, for the sole purpose of swimming in it?'

Yeah, anyone who bitches to me about the ALS challenge but uses a pool can blow me

I think it started off with having to donate 10$ along with it or 100% if you don't do the bucket.

An irrelevant amount, compared to how much is wasted when you eat animal products.

It takes 16 kilograms of grain and 10 000 litres of water to produce 1 kg of beef.

Forget shorter showers, Go vegan.

Lets think about this scientifically, owning a farm myself (and a quick Google search will help you find some more definitive sources) I can tell you that a decently sized beef cow will weigh in on average of 1500 lbs or 680 kg, but i'm going to give you the advantage for this situation and say that I can't get a cow to weigh in at more than 1400 lbs or 636 kg   
Now a cow's full body mass is about 60% beef, and edible ,sell-able meats, but once again I will drop it down to 50% in order to help attempt to prove your point.   
   
50% of 635 kg is 317 kg of pure meat   
   
10 000 litres of water per kg equals out to: 3 170 000    
   
or 3 million one hundred and seventy thousand litres of water per animal.   
    
The average cow will drink 10 000 L of water in 270 days. Which by the way, if you are selling the animal for Veal as opposed to beef, would be slaughtered at about that time weighing in at about 500-700 pounds per animal    
   
A beef cow is usually heavy enough to slaughter after 14 months, 2 years or 730 days.   
   
730 days is 2.7 x 270  or 27 000 litres of water In its entire life.   
   
27 000 litres of water divided by 317 lbs of meat is 85 litres of water per kg of meat.    
(which of course would be assuming that the cow did not sweat or urinate any of that water back out in the entire two years it was alive.   
   
(which is a over exaggeration of  117000%)   
Dont get me started on the grain.   
   
TL;DR 						****					 you, you are insanely wrong. Here are my sources if you don't believe me

If people really cared about the charity behind it they wouldn't need the challenge to donate but do it spontaneously. It's just another way of self-justification.

To be fair the money raised for charity from all this far outweighs the cost and value of the water.

It's about awareness, not about donating directly, the more people that are aware, the more that are likely to donate. Over $15 million has been donated to Lou Gehrig's Disease charities because of this challenge which is better than nothing. It is a genius tactic, how often do you hear about people simply asking for charitable donations directly? Quite often i'd say. When you make someone aware of the charity through a medium such as a challenge, it makes the person taking the challenge (or associates) think it was their own idea to donate, thus there is a far higher chance that they actually do so.

WOW it's almost like water isn't a ******* commodity over here MIND BLOWN
User avatar #87 - yodasoda ONLINE (08/20/2014) [-]
Finally, a harmless fad, that actually donates to charity, and people are complaining about it because they're wasting 5 litres of water.

Why does the internet hate everything ***** damn

Africa is such a ******* ******** it's pathetic... we need to stop wasting so much time and money over there. It's hopeless. Either kill off all the people or let them die off. Either way we need to repopulate the area and hit the reset button over there. The land is fine, the people are the problem.

If we could have take all the extra fresh clean water that is so abundant in North America and sent it to desperate African countries, dont you think we would have ******* done it by this point in time? Or ten years ago. Or 20. Why arent you bitching about all the unused ice water's brought to tables at restaurants and never drank? ******* people. Always complaining about people not making positive change, then complaining when they do.

Oh, guess I should take 5 second showers and only drink water when i'm on the brink of death.

You use water to clean your car? WHAT A WASTE
