Default A Christmas OOT Prop Bet Idea

This is partially inspired by the "Cool Hand Luke" type prop bets that El D got going on OOT a couple months ago.

Chirstmas is fast approaching, and every year TNT usually does their "24 hours of a Christmas Story" special. I usually catch bits and pieces at a time until I've by some point in the day seen the whole thing. What about the hard core Christmas Story fans? I've always wondered if someone was ever "triple dog dared" (excuse the movie reference) into attempting to watch all 24 hours of this movie. Why not have someone from OOT be the first? Things that immediately come to mind to pull this off:

a) Trustworthy OOTer who really doesn't do much for Christmas and would like to make a few bucks.

b) List of people who would donate to the cause. I figure the effort is worth $400-$500.

c) Ground rules for the subject (e.g. can only leave to hit the bathroom or kitchen, no sleeping, etc)

d) System of accountability...any ideas (timed posts on OOT, webcam in the room, etc)?

Post any ideas you come up with to do this (or if you have a better idea for a Christmas prop bet) fire away.

Might I suggest the same honor system that “master of your domain” relied upon?

Happy Festivus (as well as fiestabowl), big daddy.

Starts on Saturday the 24th @ 7 PM Central... Last airing is @ 5 PM on my birthday.. when I turn 21.

I would consider doing this, if people would be willing to contribute. Especially since i'm broke as [censored] now. I would have to do the timed post thing since I don't have anyone to watch me.

This is worth $0. If it was 48 hours then it might be interesting, but 24 hours is just not that big a deal, particularly given there's lots of college students here that pull all-nighters frequently.

Hell, this is the kind of thing I'd do just to say I did it. But I haven't even seen the movie and don't have much desire to.
