Unless you’ve avoided Facebook or other forms of social media these last couple weeks, you know that people are raising money for ALS by dumping buckets of ice water on their heads. As a fan of water-based challenges and an opponent of terrible diseases, this thing was right in JP Morgan’s wheelhouse. A firm-wide email was sent around yesterday asking people to sign up to get dumped on today at 3PM outside the 270 Park Ave HQ, with $100 donated for every participant (total amount donated was $150,000). The bank “provided big individual orange buckets for all, as well as free tee-shirts.”

UPDATE: JPM has nominated Madison Square Garden to take the challenge.

    I wouldn't mind seeing some of my younger, perkier, female co-workers in a wet t-shirt. Thanks, Jamie.

    I can't help it, Bess. I love you even when you dangle a participle

    It's a dangling modifier, but not a dangling participle.

    I used one in Hamlet. (Act 1) What's the big deal? That fucking Marlowe is behind it, I bet.
