“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.

There’s a graph of what the money is used for. Even with stuff like training staff it all adds up to furthering the cause.
Also, IBC is fun. No bitchin.
(Doesn’t even waste that much water when it’s done outside. That water will feed the grass if you’re on grass. On stone or pavement the sun will evaporate that water and it will rejoin the water cycle. Even inside the water is reused. I’m not seeing much waste - unless they’re referring to water suitable for human use and not just feeding the planet? Idk)

This man was beyond real

Okay everyone. Do you see this?
Do you see these two words?
They do not mean the same thing.
Can we all decide to stop using “gay” as a synonym for bisexual, since they’re completely different things? Bisexuality is not the same concept as homosexuality, nor is it a subset of it.

hahahahahaha I’m laughing so hard at this
Newsites always love to sum things up XD

Hullabaloo is a 2D hand-drawn animated steampunk film that hopes to help preserve the dying art of 2D animation. We want you to join us in making a short film that will showcase the world of Hullabaloo. In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.

For more information about Hullabaloo, its creators, and how you can help bring this story to life, visit here! Their goal is to reach $80,000 by October 1st, 2014, so every donation helps and help spread the word!

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Facts and Trivia [callmeforge]

Previously: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' vs. 'The LEGO Movie'

I think, if nothing else, this shows why Guardians worked so well: Everyone in it wanted to be there, and everyone threw their best into it.

Don’t be like all the rest.

As I wrote in my LONG meta, this was the moment that really sold me on Mary, because to my mind there’s no one to lie to here.She doesn’t know it’s Billy - she’s walking away without another look in that last gif - so there’s one to perform to; she gives him money when no one else is looking, for no one’s benefit but his, and that seems to me to echo what’s in her heart. When she tells John that people like Magnussen should be killed, when Sherlock deduces that she’s “Disillusioned,” and here - my feeling is that they all add up to a woman who may have, in the past, done the wrong things for the right reasons.

Agreed. Sad this doesn’t have more notes, yet metas with no logical reasoning that constantly focus on the apparent negative aspects of Mary’s character get a buttload of notes.
