OK, I have to admit, I thought the ice bucket challenge was a stupid “bucket list” item.  Bad Pun intended.

Yet, you can’t argue with success.  Apparently, that dumb ass challenge raised a very smart $115 million and that has propelled research on ALS.  In fact, perhaps even leading to a breakthrough.https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-intersect/wp/2016/07/27/the-als-ice-bucket-challenge-is-working/

So, in the spirit of if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, what would make a great “Autism Challenge”?  Something that could raise closer to $250 million in research funding.  There’s got to be a great idea out there.  On the plus side, there’s apparently no shortage of dumb people ready to do something stupid, along with writing $100 checks for the action.
