    This week's Fallout Dallas project screenie: The Pip-Boy 4500.

    Fully functioning in-game too. One can click all the buttons and such.

    On trivial topics...

    Having been a couple weeks since Daylight Savings, I'm just finally starting to get used to the time switch again.

    Which is a nice way of saying I was confused for two weeks as usual.

    Anyone else think it's really, really time to get rid of DST? Modern tech makes it pointless, honestly. At least that's my take.

    I've found (through years of experimentation) that some sunglass shapes simply don't work for me. Aviators, for instance. I have three pairs (I bought them years ago, in a set), but some of them simply go too far down my cheeks to be comfortable. Also, someone I knew and broke up with (Gopal) wore those types of glasses, and they remind me of him, so I've developed an aversion of sorts to them...mostly because they remind me of a Bitter Failure (I worked hard to make it work and it...didn't). I also need to buy some more, because most of the shades I've got (I don't have that many) are lighter tones, and don't block out the sun that well, get the picture. I also need larger lenses, because I have a couple that are too small and don't protect anything beyond straight forward in one's vision and they glare elsewhere, so...I need bigger sunglasses.

    In Chicago, Illinois, it is illegal to fish in one's pajamas.

    Sleep-fishing, anyone? Only way I'd see why one was fishing in one's paj…

    This week's Fallout Dallas project screenie: the Cotton Bowl.

    Onward, to polls!... about something or another...

    I would try to find something in the news to talk about, but it's all pointless politics now. Even if it's not remotely political in nature, it's made political because "anything vaguely connectable to a person/group/belief we believe to be evil is by definition evil, not what's already connected". Or at least that's sure what it feels like now.

    I'd try to find something in Fallout to talk about, but it's all just Fallout 4/76, neither of which are games I can play or really care about anyway.

    Feels like my dead money's stuck betting on a lonesome road full of old-world blues, an' all I can do is look for the few honest hearts left.

    So, I guess I'll put down some generic questions about New Vegas DLCs. Random topic. Woo.

    I polished my brass bangles the other day with a cleaner. Can you guess what it might be? Not what you might consider a "typical" cleanser. Heh heh heh...

    Your average (American, didn't say anywhere else) woman spends about $60,000 a year on hair care and cuts.

    Wow. Just... wow. I know I don't even come close to that. I doubt I even spend a tenth of that... Not to say I have bad hair, but all I do is shampoo for my "products". I cut it at home. Why would you want to spend that much!

    Do you believe in lucky charms?

    • You're so-so. To believe or not believe, that is the question...
    • Lucky Charms cereal, anyone? I would, but marshmallows in that cereal have food coloring, and I'm allergic to artificial colors.
    • There's no such thing. I'm almost there. But part of me hangs back from totally being there, so I'm fully in third place.

    Should there be more "joke options" in my polls?

    • Every once in a while. When the wit inspires?
    • Once in a blue moon. Not much of one for humor, eh? Too bad...
    • But…

    Fallout Friday Polls are in! Be sure to answer all polls and leave a comment!

    Beginning this week, I'm going to start providing some random screenshots of my little Fallout Dallas project. (Warning: It's in Minecraft, so let's not get any hopes up about this being a high-grade New Vegas mod or anything like that.)

    Note: while this server has been under construction (and will continue to be under construction) for several years now, the wikia connected to it is fairly new still.

    I'll kick off these screenshots with an exterior shot of our main "start location", Vault 45. Here, you wake up in 2288 after 200 years of cryosleep. There was also a revolt of some Vault dwellers against an Overseer who was going to leave them to die before that or something, but that's a topic for another day. Or for anyone who reads that Timeline page for some reason.

    On to some polls.

    Do you believe in "lucky charms"? Part of me does, yet another part does not. I know that I sure don't seem to get any luck from four-leaf clovers, but at the same time, I'm reluctant to not pick one, because, what if it works? I have books that I open up and read from time to time, and find old four-leaf clovers tucked in there, and pessimism kicks in and I think "Do these things actually work, or should I just toss them out the door?" but the superstitionist says "What if they really do work? Don't do that!" So...argh.

    For the record (in case you want to look for any four-leaf clovers of your own...because I have a few batches in the backyard), white clover is the kind that makes the occasional four-leaf. Red (which has fuzzy leaves) does not. Nor does yellow clover. Just in case you wanted to know.

    Do you hear frogs where you live?

    • You don't know what a frog is (huh?!) and you love the sound. I voted in my own poll, but I can't remember what option I picked!
    • Comment and you live in a v…

    First up, we have the poll results from last week's informal popularity vote.

    Third and second place: we have a tie between Richie9999 and newly-elected DistustingWastelander.

    In first place we have Jspoelstra.

    Third place is a tie between Agent C and Peace'n Hugs.

    Second place goes to Aya42.

    And the winner is FDekker.

    This is where the votes begin to split...

    In third place we have a triple tie between StormRider71, Overseer X, and The Courier NCR for life.

    Second place goes to Chris the Saiyan.

    First place moderator is President Augustus!

    Last but not least, we have the bottom grinders who keep the pages swept and the polls running. Or patrollers, as other folks call 'em.

    Third place is some guy named NomadicNom. I heard he was a Texan or something?

    Second place goes to Leea. Not sure who that is either.

    And first place (by a wide margin) is the newcomer L84tea!

    Congratulations to all the winners, and a usual thanks to the Nukapedia sta…

    All you need is one frog to say something, and then they all start in, like a chorus. It's always kind of funny. They especially have something (lots of something, actually) to say during or after a rain.

    In St. Croix, Wisconsin, women are not allowed to wear anything red in public.

    What if I wear crimson? Or maroon? Deep burgundy? That's way darker and more black than "true" red...

    Would YOU look down on someone who was homeschooled and never had a desire to go to college (i.e., me)?

    • You never went to school. How do you make it, then? Or are you just joking?
    • Comment (you say I should go to college someday) and you don't want to comment. Afraid I might be hurt?
    • I'm just fine. Yay! Also, its not like people go to college and get Masters degrees in math or something and then just end up being a postman (where you're not using your hard-earned degree), so...I see little reason to go.

    What kind of school did you go to?

    • Homeschooled. Guess who these two were? =P
    • Private. I.e., rich kid school. Gopal we…

    Welcome to the Patrons' Lounge of the Strategic Nuclear Moose cantina, the hot spot for any and all wastelanders worth mentioning, to hang out and share their tales. Maybe you're looking for someone to team up with out in the harsh wastelands, or you could be looking for a story to pass the time before heading out again. Whichever is true, you'll always have a place here at our hearth, among friends. That is, so long as you don't agree to arm-wrestle with Francis over there in the corner.
