No Splash?

How many people noticed that on the "longest" day of the year in the northern hemisphere, the world was supposed to be made aware of ALS (Motor Neuron Disease). The spark of caring was to have been turned into a fire of making a difference. You hadn't heard about this?

Isn't it ironic that on the same day the media were full of articles on the U.S. Olympic diving trials where the goal is to enter the water with nary a splash?

No splash is good in diving. No splash is bad for any effort that involves the word awareness.

Keeping in mind that the raw score is multiplied by the degree of difficulty (which isn't all that tough in the age of electronic communications), the five judges score ALS/MND Global Awareness Day 2008 -- 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0 (one judge liked the poster just a little).
