tbf the people who usually die during a cold snap are the ones who are stuck outside

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

All this hot and cold talk reminds me of that game show where the contestants would be put into a chamber and depending if they got questions right or wrong the temperature would change.

And with a quick search, it was actually called The Chamber

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Draft ideas I just came up with:

Episodes draft- you draft single episodes of TV series. Once you pick an episode from a series, that series is off limits.

Zombie apocalypse items draft- you draft items to help you survive in a zombie apocalypse. Any item you draft will have enough supplies to be used for 3 years. If you draft a gun, you will have enough ammo to last 3 years. If you draft a flashlight, you will have enough batteries for 3 years, etc.

Movie characters draft- not sure how this would work.

Overrated bands draft- Not really a good draft since there's such a huge dropoff after the top 2 picks

While I think five gets too much of a bad rap around here, the lack of plausibility of the serial killer plot plus trying to rush through all the plotlines in a shortened season does deserve a penalty.

Yeah, there's a huge advantage being at the head of the draft order here.
