If the Ice Challenge hasn’t yet hit its peak, it’s only a matter of time before we run out of people who haven’t doused themselves in ice water, paid money to get out of doing it or made a status update about how stupid the trend is, despite the millions of dollars that it’s raised.
Unlike previous fads, like selfies and “Frozen,” its impossible to argue that the Ice Bucket Challenge hasn’t has a positive impact on the world, but the reality is that it’s only a matter of time before it gets beaten into the ground like every other trend before it.
Part of that positive impact has to do with the funds and awareness raised for ALS, but it’s also provided the world with an incredible amount of entertainment thanks to people who tried to do the Ice Bucket Challenge, but somehow managed to screw it up.
I’ve previously posted a few of these in video form, but they’re infinitely more enjoyable on repeat for eternity. The Ice Bucket Challenge might be getting a little old, but I don’t know if I’ll ever get tired of watching people screw it up.
The cap was on the Jameson, but that other part wasn’t staged
Drive-bys are so much harder when you forget about physics
A helmet can only do so much
It’s all fun and games until someone shatters a vertebra
“Watch out for that cool… nevermind”
The Ice Bucket Challenge meets “QWOP”
The struggle is the realest
Upper body strength is your friend
And D, for those of you who want it
“Let’s put a trashcan on the roof! What can go wrong? Oh. That.”
In fact, heights, in general, aren’t the best idea
At least try to hold on to whatever container you’re using
It’s a good idea to make sure the ice isn’t a solid chunk
Taking it out of the bag helps, too
It’s like a do-it-yourself concussion kit
For those of you thinking about using Styrofoam coolers: Stop
It was probably just his superhuman strength
If you’re going to be doing the pouring, it’s best to avoid hitting people in the face with the bucket
Holding on to it is also a good idea
Reminder: Bathtubs are slippery
Falling isn’t only a concern for the person on the receiving end
Coordination is key
Chairs can be so confusing sometimes
The self-knockout actually deserves some credit
Sitting down should be the easiest part of the Ice Bucket Challenge
At least everyone else put in a little bit of effort

People have always had rocky relationships, but it’s taken a while to reach a point where we can document the lowest moments of our private lives to share them online with strangers for some reason I haven’t entirely figured out. Texts From Your Ex is a recently launched Instagram account devoted to posting screenshots of […]
In the past few years, the Internet has been flooded with something I like to call “Tumblr pictures”: photographs filtered to look older than they actually are plastered with pseudo-inspirational messages for people who enjoy reblogging quotes from authors they’ve never heard of to make other people think they’re cultured. I’m not disparaging anyone who […]
People have a natural tendency to think they’re special or unique, but there’s only so much you can do to differentiate yourself from the rest of the crowd. This especially applies to married couples, who have a tendency to act like they’re different than everyone else while simultaneously managing to put on an absolute clinic […]
Earlier this week, a reporter for a local news station in Alaska, quit her job on live TV to work full-time at a medical marijuana company, uttering, “F*ck this, I quit” before walking off set and causing everyone in the studio to forget how to talk. The stunt attracted even more publicity than she probably […]

Generally speaking, there are a few things that can happen when you look underneath a bathroom stall: There will either be a pair of legs, nothing at all or the most uncomfortable eye contact you’ve ever made in your entire life. Seeing four feet instead of the usual two is pretty rare, and even though […]
Your eyes pop open and a series of blinks occur. A visual of an adjacent wall, disturbing wallpaper and the leftovers from the monster of an appetite that reared its ugly head last night all greet you good morning. Your brain begins to load the image like an old computer blinking in and out, processing […]
Ladies, it’s been said before, but I’ll say it again: They just don’t make ‘em like they used to. There’s no door-holding, no hand-holding and definitely no free drinks. There’s no taking off hats or courting through invitations. There are no smooth moves, no jackets to dinner. There are no flowers, no tables by candlelight. […]
On the same day Adrian Peterson released a written apology for his indictment on child abuse charges and was reinstated to his team, he’s is being investigated for an additional child abuse case, this one related to a different son. On Monday, KHOU 11 in Houston reported the separate child abuse case, which allegedly took […]
The person behind the massive nude photo leak that occurred this weekend is claiming he or she is in possession of more photos of celebrities and is threatening to release them. Currently, we do not know the identity or whereabouts of the hacker, though many have suspected a man named Bryan Hamade. Whoever the hacker […]
One of the long, unsolved mysteries leftover from “How I Met Your Mother” is how the pineapple wound up on Ted’s nightstand back in season one. Ted, himself had no idea how the pineapple came to be and throughout the run of the show, he and his buddies did their best to solve the mystery. […]
Pat Benatar said it best: “Love is a battlefield.” Some have said that people don’t like relationships, but rather, the drama of them. And anyone who has been in a relationship knows that it’s nothing but drama. Unless you’ve gotten to that point where both of you are so perfect and compatible that you marry […]
