Having not been voted out in the first round, the Half-Dozen survives into what was a quieter, more reflective week with 53 ideas added, 173 buns handed out and only 50 bones (hope u is diggin da stats, I is rockin da pivot table dis time). Ideas of a fun and lighthearted nature were preferred, while
deadly force joined the cadre of bones-attracting topics. Annotation was heaviest on the subjects of technobabble, military history (yes, again) and <sigh> shouty bouty nude prudes.
