Hey i just talked to this guy for the first time and the butcher story about people eating human meat kinda sounded like a reference to Doc Morbid from the original game. Not 100% sure though but i thought i'd throw that out there incase anyone wants to check.
I was redirected to this page when I discovered there was no page for Ben, a squatter in Freeside. He can be found on the other side of the building on the left when the player enters Freeside via the North Gate, dead from a thug. Does anyone know why this character is named and dead without any real purpose? Even after being resurrected using the console he has no dialogue options other than "Goodbye." --CptMuddles 15:42, January 3, 2011 (UTC)
Old Ben Edit
"...I wonder if he means old Ben Kenobi?"
The shakes Edit
Just thought I'd throw this out there if anyone was as morbidly curious as I was about the shakes Old Ben was referring too, and doesn't want the weird Google search history. He's referring to Kuru, a prion disease like Mad Cow, that was spread around a tribe in Papua New Guinea through cannibalism.  Fun times. 188.8.131.52 07:16, July 21, 2011 (UTC)
Good hunting there, if it's not in the behind the scenes section it should be mentioned that this is what he might be talking about. (Troper of the Wastelands 06:25, August 7, 2011 (UTC))
