For you, I’d steal the stars.
The point of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

aristoxxcracy:

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.

There are approximately 1,013,913 words in the English language but I could never string any of them together to explain how incredible I think you are.

Years ago I learned a very cool thing about Robin Williams, and I couldn’t watch a movie of his afterward without thinking of it. I never actually booked Robin Williams for an event, but I came close enough that his office sent over his rider. For those outside of the entertainment industry, a rider lists out an artist’s specific personal and technical needs for hosting them for an event, anything from bottled water and their green room to sound and lighting requirements. You can learn a lot about a person from their rider. This is where rocks bands list their requirement for green M&Ms (which is actually a surprisingly smart thing to do). This is also where a famous environmentalist requires a large gas-guzzling private jet to fly to the event city, but then requires an electric or hybrid car to take said environmentalist to the event venue when in view of the public.
When I got Robin Williams’ rider, I was very surprised by what I found. He actually had a requirement that for every single event or film he did, the company hiring him also had to hire a certain number of homeless people and put them to work. I never watched a Robin Williams movie the same way after that. I’m sure that on his own time and with his own money, he was working with these people in need, but he’d also decided to use his clout as an entertainer to make sure that production companies and event planners also learned the value of giving people a chance to work their way back. I wonder how many production companies continued the practice into their next non-Robin Williams project, as well as how many people got a chance at a job and the pride of earning an income, even temporarily, from his actions. He was a great multiplier of his impact. Let’s hope that impact lives on without him. Thanks, Robin Williams- not just for laughs, but also for a cool example.

Walking corpse syndrome (cotard’s syndrome) is a rare mental disorder in which a person believes that they are dead.
For example, a British man, Graham woke up nine years ago convinced he was no longer alive although he was still breathing. Doctors diagnosed him with cotard’s syndrome, but Graham did not believe them. He insisted that he was dead. 

The unusual condition emerged after Graham, who suffered from severe depression, tried to commit suicide by taking an electrical appliance with him into the bath.


Eight months later he told doctors that his brain had died or was, at best, missing.
He even stopped eating, smoking and drinking because there was no point and he was “dead”. He felt compelled to go to his local cemetery because he thought he would fit in. 
Graham’s brain scans resembled those of a person in vegetative state or under anesthesia. Luckily after months of therapy, he was able to overcome his condition. 
Cotard’s Syndrome is among the most rare diseases in the world and it is thought that it affects just few hundred people at any one time.
It is linked to depression and comes in a variety of forms including some who feel that their limbs are no longer functioning.
