    Tempest's metaphor for it is just flippin' Tempest being Tempest.

    A cold load is a load that's been sitting past room temperature

    Why don't you just unplug it first?

    Shouldn't you wipe that up?

    I wanted to experience a cold load. I'm still unsure as to what a cold load is, and I needed to know.

    It's a feeling you get in-game like a "should I?" or "shouldn't I?" decision/lifes moment.

    What if I go swimming in a clown suit? Is that a cold load?
