From the watch what you post online category, you gotta read this.

The phenomenon that is the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has raised more than $88 million, make that $88.1 million, $88.2 million, well, you get the point. The numbers keep rising.

Here is a suggestion though. You might want to sit out if, I don’t know, say you are wanted for violating your parole.

Jesean Morris had the best intentions when he posted his ice bucket challenge video on Facebook, but he ended up in the wrong place when someone who saw the video knew Morris had a warrant out against him.

So he did what any Facebook “friend” would do. He called police. Poor guy just wanted to do a good thing.
