Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

Fallout takes place in a 50s/60s-SciFi-post-apoc-red-scare-retrofuture world. That's a great piece of writing right there. Americana has a huge part in it. There can not be a genuine Fallout game outside the US. :crazy:

The MythBusters did something like that. It was quite awesome. Look up their "Steam Machine Gun" episode for inspiration. I vote for the two-shot hunting crossbow, though.

Also, congratulations. :clap:

Re: BOB, INCH, GOOD, GHB. Different names for the same thing
