My Ice Bucket Challenge

Since most people have been using their ice bucket videos to encourage people to donate to ALSA, I wanted to use my video to share knowledge about the disease itself. I had eight buckets of ice water thrown at me by the kids in my neighborhood (and one adult for good measure). Rather than post the video right away, I challenged my Facebook friends to answer eight questions about ALS to "unlock" the video and animated GIF of me getting soaked. Well, they've answered my eight questions, so here's my #ALSIceBucketChallenge:
