Damn you Chon nothing slows you guys down...point to Chon

Ahh that makes a lot of sense now, DarkGwyddion.

A well known fashion designer, wanting a break from the cit "rat race", decided to spend a few days at a rural resort. Feeling like some fresh air after a day of reading and relaxing she decided to go for a winter stroll. That was the last time anyone saw her alive. The autopsy revealed that death was due to the pack she had had on her back. What was so deadly about this pack?

You could have atleast explained it.Still its correct.Point to Temeraire.
Mordul-is the pack an ice pack?Or a backpack of water bottles that froze her?
New one,rhyme form:
I live in the world of Charlie Chaplin
But there's more to him than fame.
Sixty-four times I asked "What is happ'ning?"
But noone answered my claim.
And if you know the right thing
If you know who I am,say my name.

For the Charlie Chaplin one.... the 64 (I think) refers to the frame rate of the silent films he is famous for... He doesn't answer because there's no sound in a silent film.

I suspect the riddle is referring to a particular scene in once of his movies, but I've never seen any of them, so you got me there.

For the backpack one:

She was hanging by the pool in the resort, and forgot to get dressed... the pack contained her clothes. She died of exposure.

Temeraire another interesting idea for which you shall recieve a point, but still not the answer I'm looking for.

Now marin, curse you have me wiki-ing the cohorts of Charlie Chaplin which in turn leads to every frikkin link from ragtime to MacArthur blacklisting most of Hollywood as Commies... but I will thank you for making me look up Michigan J. Frog

Hello! ma baby
Hello! ma honey
Hello! ma ragtime gal
Send me a kiss by wire
Baby, ma heart's on fire!
If you refuse me
Honey, you'll lose me
Then you'll be left alone
Oh, baby, telephone
And tell me I'm your own!

That Frog is talented... where did pa leave his crawfishing net...

Because in darts, you subtract the points (Toby is losing btw)
