It's just a bad idea in general.

That is, would not be good for alex?

Going back to animals, cows and their precious blood is really important for the Masai people in Kenya.

Would not be good for anyone. It's just a generally STUPID idea, and no matter the number of paramedics around it's still possible to be hurt or to get extremely sick.

I got your point here.

It depends on what is important to a person, standing for a cause of the chance of getting sick. People have been doing it for a long time, so the people who do it just weigh what they find important, and make a decision. I think people are more willing to come watch and give money if people do crazy things, instead of just "hey... come give us some money for the kids!"

It's not just about getting sick! It's about putting yourself in a dangerous situation that's more bad than the good that could come out of it! AND they're not just kids you know, people who are mentally challanged can still be the same age as you even if they don't have the same level of thinking.
You're right, people may pay more to see crazy **** but there's a million other things people could do than jumping into a freezing cold lake.

Exactly. There is a person here in our country known as the "running priest". He runs for a cause, when the government is being opposed; but better if he'll do his real advocacy instead of going along with a group's strike.

I know not all mental challeneged people are kids. But, most fund raiser are for helping children. I was refering to fund raisers in general.

Yeah. It is good to know that. Absolutely. That at least is a good cause to raise funds and use them to make the life others better at least. Well, we have come far; I appreciate that the other sides of our reality is at least within our thoughts.

Going back to the point of this topic, I mean animals; the Galapagos island is a good example for knowing diversity. The iguanas there are salt water in origin. Correct me if I am wrong. Is it only the Galapagos the place where you can find such salt water iguanas?
