Aug 27 One of the 'perils' of maintaining successful websites is that you get noticed. So one threw the ALS #IceBucketChallenge onto me - the webmiss of this little show. Only I'm not famous, so no one would want to see me wet with ice cubes all over me. So I decided to follow Capt. Picard / Prof. Xavier / Patrick Stewart's example and use the ice for the whisky and instead donate money to the research of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) / Lou Gehrig's Disease, or Motor Neurone Disease (MND) as it is called in the UK. I even used my good silver- and glassware ... but my brand of whisky is different and I haven't filmed it, only took a picture.
More infos - US: ; UK:, donate to Text ICED55 (followed by an amount e.g. £5) to 70070 ; Germany:
The ALS ice bucket challenge has raised an unprecedented $94.3 mio/£48 mio in less than a month with donations from more than 1.7 million people.
Someone should challenge Maximilian Brückner to get wet, just like his fellow actors from "War Horse", Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch ... Tom's video / Ben's video
