The Greatest Idea You've Never Heard About

...cause the more you know.Early yesterday morning, two dozen teenagers took the ice somewhere in the middle of Southern Siberia to play for their countries. Canada and Russia are taking part in an 8-game series pitting their Under-20 teams against each other.

This all makes for great theatre and quality posts that involve little or no work, so Raskolnikov can stop punishing himself now, but I think he kind of likes it. All this week we here at MYFO will be bringing to you the best applications we have received, so let us know what you think: do these guys suck, should we keep them around for good, do you want to see more before making a decision, or do you think you can do better?
