The point of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

the point of pouring a shit ton of ice water over yourself is because when one suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) one of the affects the disease has is a numbness throughout the body, as well as struggling to breathe, and both these are meant to temporarily happen when doused in freezing water. It’s to raise awareness of what ALS feels like and encourage donations towards research and cures.

Blood Of Eden - Peter Gabriel featuring Sinead O’Connor

They say blood is thicker than water and that sounds like family ties are greater than the bonds of friendship. But it really means that the covenant you choose can be more important than the one into which you are born. It means that whoever you swear an oath to or become blood brothers with becomes like family. It means you owe your life to those who have earned your trust. I thought of this song because it’s about the mending of those covenants. Or sex. Actually, I think it’s sex. Most Peter Gabriel songs are about sex.
