      Wasteland Journal - Entry 1 - My name is Tits Mcgee.

      10/23/2287

      I have woken up into a nightmare beyond my wildest imagination. My world had been destroyed. My wife is a popsicle with a hole shot in her and my son has been taken by two people who are willing to steal a baby from it's mothers arms.

      Let me start at the end......of the world....as we knew it.

      My name is Tits Mcgee. My family was lucky/unlucky enough to be accepted into Vault 111. That same day Armageddon was unleashed upon the world. My family barely made it to the Vault in time. We actually saw a nuke hit before we were lowered into the Vault. If we had been lowered two seconds later there would have been nothing more then smoking corpses burnt into the elevator floor.

      When we reached the bottom of the Vault's staff was waiting for us. I never got a chance to meet the people running the Vault. We were hurried into Vault 111 jump suits and were brought into a room full of opened pods. We were told to go into pods to be analyzed. That was a lie. Shortly after we all entered the pods the doors closed and the window began to freeze over. I slipped into unconsciousness.

      I awoke still sealed in my the pod. I was groggy and disorientated. I could make out two people in front of my wife's pod. One was wearing a full contamination suit. The other looked like he belonged in a old biker gang movie. They opened her pod and tried to take Saun from her. She would not release him. The biker guy pointed a gun at her demanding that she release my son.......then he shot her......Suan still in her arms.......I couldn't do anything but watch. They took my son! They looked at me and mumbled something about having a spare before I slipped once again into unconsciousness.

      I awoke once more to the pod opening up. I stumbled out and examined my wife through the glass. I can't tell if shes dead or alive. I can't access the Pods. They are malfunctioning. The more I explored the computer files the more horrific my situation seemed to be. No one was left alive in the Vault. All the other residents in the pods are dead. The suffocated in them when life support failed. I don't know how I survived. The status of my wife and her pod is unknown.

      As I investigated the Vaults computer logs I found out the true motives of Vault-Tec and Vault 111. The Vault was never meant to save anyone. We were never supposed to wake up from those pods. It was a death trap from the start. They just wanted to study the long term affects on people being put in cryostasis. The staff knowing and seemingly gladly ushered us to our doom.

      I wonder if any of the Vaults were meant to save anyone or were they all just someones sick science experiment.

      Well the was no since in complaining about my situation to the staff because they were ether dead or gone. Things apparently went south in the Vault rather quickly after the doors were sealed. The staff was supposed to be allowed to leave after 180 days or after a "All Clear" signal was broadcasted. Even then we were supposed to remain in the pods to be remotely managed by Vault-Tec. Supply's were running low and after 180 days the Overseer of the Vault refused to let anyone leave. A mutiny accrued. I don't know how it ended but there are too few dead body's in the Vault to account for the staff so I have to assume some of the sons of bitches made it out.

      I decided it was time to search for my son which meant escaping this place. As I worked my way to the Overseers office I found my way blocked by roaches. Roaches the size of a skateboards. The radiation must have effected them. I had to kill them with my bear hands. I never thought I would find myself punching a roach to death. Thankfully when I got to the Overseers office it was accessible.

      The overseer's corpse lay just behind his desk. At least he got what was coming to him. If he had taken the laser rifle out of its case on the wall he may have been able to put up a fight but for whatever reason it remains locked in its case. I diddled the lock but only a master locksmith could pick that thing. Since there was no key I had to leave it behind. Through the console on his desk I was able to open the door so I could exit the Vault. I took the pistol off his desk and prepared to leave my wife behind.

      As I was opening the Vault door I discovered another corpse with a Pip-boy next to it. How convenient. This thing will defiantly come in handy. With it I was able to access the door and open the Vault. I stepped once again onto the elevator. It seamed to me like I had just been there a short time ago.

      I ascended into a ruined world.

    • WTF is going on with the RT forums??? It's a ghost town filling up with Zombie threads.

      The forms have been a ghost town for months. Dead threads that haven't had a reply in 8 years are being boosted to the first page of the topics without any new reply's like zombies rising from the grave. Here's the story.

      I was posting on a thread that was on page 1 of general discussion and was about to post when I looked up and discovered that the last reply was 8 years ago. I erased the post and got out of the zombie thread.That's when I grew curious.

      I went back and looked at the first two pages of General Discussion. One out of three topics hadn't had a reply in years. These zombie threads had somehow clawed their way up to the front page after being buried by 8 years of threads!

      The forms have been a ghost town for weeks. Is it just me or did there used to be a lot more traffic. It seems like there is about 20 of us or less that post or reply on any given day. Are we a dying breed?

      Also I haven't seen hide nor hare of the moderates in weeks.

      I think we've been getting along pretty well....all thing considered.

      P.S. I don't know how it works but the spell check is a little clunky. I type "heres" and it suggests a lot of things but "here's" is not on of them. Typing "beleave" is another one. Everything but "believe".

    • Is the new Destiny DLC worth getting back into the game if you got sick of looking for/leveling up gear?

      I got sick of trying to get gear or leveling up gear just so I can play on hard to get more gear and then level up that gear so one day i have all the gear at which point......I win?

      I decided " The cake is a lie. "

      But I'm curious. Is the new DLC worth getting back into the game or does it still boil down to grinding for gear.

    • How do you explain that Honey never spoils to a Alien???

      in Forums > How do you explain that Honey never spoils to a Alien??? | Follow this topic

      SlainHope Thread Slayer

      If you were trying to explain to a Alien that honey never goes bad but you didn't speak the same language how would you communicate to the Alien that honey is edible and never goes bad.

      I would leave the part that its bee spit out. It make them think we are savages. Like those people in the jungle who drink that moonshine that is made by chewing the main ingredient and spiting into a jug and letting it ferment.

      Now I know math is the universal language so with math that a alien could figure out how would I explain infinity to it in a way that it would understand and associate with the honey.

      Now you might be wondering how I came up with this. allow me to explain.

      The thought was inspired by that new stranded on Mars movie that's coming out & all those upper stratosphere GoPro videos I have seen.

      I was thinking If people could do that they could probably launch care packages of honey into space and have them land on mars. That way if anyone was stranded on mars there would be jars of honey laying around.

      But I was thinking what If a alien got stranded on Mars and could really use some honey but it has no way to know if it spoils or not.

      So I was trying to think of a way to label honey so any intelligent being that came across it would be able to know just by looking at the label that this item never spoils.

      But that doesn't make since....Everything has a half life. Nothing lasts forever. So what is the half life of honey.

      Questions lead to questions which lead to more questions!


      P.S. I don't believe in paragraphs!

      I'm starting a Game channel on YouTube and Twitch. I'm will be capturing from a XBone to a PC. I hear a lot of people use El gatto but I heard that a year ago and don't know if people have moved on to something different.

      I'm a complete novice at this and am doing it completely on my own so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    • Unpleasant suprise! How do I know if/when my sponsorship expires.

      in Forums > Unpleasant suprise! How do I know if/when my sponsorship expires. | Follow this topic

      SlainHope Thread Slayer

      I have never once in my life enjoyed the benefits of being a Rooster Teeth sponsor even though I have been a sponsor for a year or so ( but I've been a fan since the early RvB days & attended my first RTX this year ). I recently joined twitter just to follow Rooster Teeth as well as Funhaus. Funhaus tweeted that they were going live on the podcast in a few minutes so I decided "why not watch" seeing the other live podcast I usually watch on Mondays was having tech problems and had gone dark.

      DENIED!!! Imagine my surprise and dismay when I discovered I was not going to get past the velvet rope because my name was not on the list. I was no longer a sponsor of Rooster Teeth!? I checked my emails & my messages to find that I never received any kind of notification that my sponsorship was about to run out let alone that it had expired. I immediately renewed my sponsorship but I am now left with some question that I would really appreciate some answers to.

      1. Does ( how long Iv been a sponsor for ) reset when it runs out which means I'm a day 1 sponsor again (which would suck ass!!!)?

      2. Why wouldn't I receive any kind of warning before my sponsorship ran out or a notification after it had expired.

      3. Did my sponsorship run out or is this a new website bug that just bit me.

      4. If my bank account was to low (which it was for a few days last week because of the money pit I call my car) why wouldn't RT give people a week or so leeway considering we all know shit happens. If it was a subscription I would understand a immediate cut off. RT stands to lose little by letting people slide on their sponsorship for a week unless they are buying RT gear and using their discount (which means they have money and are bucking the system which is easy to track) or watching sponsor only content but RT does stand to lose money by giving up on them without warning.

      Bottom line is I love you guys and I hope you keep doing what your doing cuz you do it so well. Just was'ent felling the love when I found out the hard way I'd been tossed to the curb like an used receptacle without so much as a "thanks".

      Anyways hope this didn't come off as preachy or whiny. If you must assign a tone to these words butt-hurt with a dash of confusion and a pinch of uncertainty would probably be the best option.
