For those of you who don't have us on Facebook, TOGM was challenge by our own PhilC - Sack Brigader! after his own webcomic, Living Room Wars completed it.

Well, though it might lack the same effect that it has on others, Beth has taken up the torch to see TOGM standing up and spreading the message about ALS!

www.als.ca/en/donate (Canadian version)
www.alsa.org/donate

It's definitely a worthwhile cause, and if people are donating (And they are!! It raised over $8.6 million in one day!), then this isn't just some stupid internet fad.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoyed it :)

This is very awesome -- I have never loved Beth more! And that's saying something. LRW Mikuru is very appreciative. I ended up making a donation on her behalf because she was such a good sport!

Hahaha, wow. I just went into full on rant mode there about companies asking for too much personal information for things like donating money.

Anyway, on a slightly less mouth-foaming note, thanks for including us, and thanks for your own efforts for the cause!

I love how she is just like "oh.. right.. it's supposed to be cold..." actually.. if they flash froze the green stuff, could it survive...?

Me too! This one was all June, so I can compliment the cleverness of the joke :)

I don't know the exact science behind flash freezing, and how it affects materials similar to the Green Stuff. I can't answer that question with any authority.

Flash freezing uses liquid nitrogen to instantly drop something's core temperature into the negatives making it so it won't decompose, the green stuff would likely react like flash frozen icecream, a layer of frost over it and the green stuff a ball of ice. If the green stuff is completely biological, then it is unlikely to survive being unfrozen after flash freezing, however if it has a mechanical element, it is possible it could survive. You never really explained if the green stuff was nanomachinnes or 100% biological... or some mixture.

In that case, the answer is a very enthusiastic "Maybe!" :)

Also: Imagine nipples

This was probably Skrael....

Anyway, as TOGM is a PG-13 comic, we suggest that you only imagine said nipples if you are of the appropriate age group wherein the nipples would be a lawful viewing experience in your place of residence.

I realized something ironic. This icebucket als thing, my comic was going to start with a character having als, because there is no cure. Isn't that a kick of irony.

I hope that had you included it, that you were respectful and informed in your depiction.

Yes I was going to, I even had an author blurb typed up with the alsa.org site and a bunch of information on it. I know it not only attacks the brain and spinal cord, but also because of that causes muscular dystrophy, which can spread to the heart and lungs before much damage is done to the brain or spinal cord, killing the person because their heart or lungs became too weak to function, that was the part I was using.
