What info do we actually have on the problem?  I'm just going off half-remembered Heph thread posts.

If you can keep it cold and contained, O2F2 is another horrible monster of a chemical.  It might even overcome our magical ChemOffTM.

Meh, you could sustain low enough temperature with liquid nitrogen. Given we have no trouble obtaining liquid helium, I think this won't be a problem.

An experiment succeeded and accidentally bought a heat eating entity into existance, or so Doctor thinks. Entire experimental area is frozen solid to prevent it eating all heat in universe.

In the UNIVERSE?
What about the vacuum of space, isn't that a thing?
Also, can it be moved?

There isn't a vent system, the existing cooling system on the MK1 is a pair of gigantic fins on the back, and on the MCP1 just radiates heat evenly by being thin and skintight.
Then you need better fins.
The fins work fine, they just detonated like a grenade if you hit them too hard.
Did this ever happen? I mean, I recall the warning against falling on one's back, but then, like every mission, seems like people end up with these fins in contact with something cold enough to explode them somewhere, but they don't. And I've never read of one exploding from force either.

I'm trying to ascertain what's pointless to try.  So that might have merit.  Very well then.

I remember someone trying to lay on a bed while wearing a MK1. The bed caught fire after a while.

I remember reading that snowflakes were impacting them on one of the missions and making loud popping noises.

Clearly running multiple missions at the same time is a terrible idea.  The epic battle to see which team can cock it up worse has escalated again.

And Larry kinda gets blueballed in all this; just left with a raging bone spear and no where to put it.

He notices way more than you could possibly be comfortable with. The question is, would he reply?

If you want to make sure he notices you be sure to put an action to the effect of Talk in the post.

Dioxygen difluoride is a horrible monster, yes, but it explodes and catches fire when reacting.
