B)Efficiency drops as the temp of both areas approach one another, so its not like you can forcibly drain one location to keep the other super hot.

In the article he claims that it would take three weeks to walk across one segment of the map, even with noclip enabled, and then it would just create a new segment.

Last election we had for governor had 4 recounts. Three went to the challenger by a 1000-1500 vote margin. The fourth went to the incumbent with a 2000 vote margin after some ballot boxes were "found" in a closet. Recounts were immediatly suspended and the election went to the incumbent. Voter fraud happens.
