    Oh, according to canon it might have been a lost dog. So I'm an obligatory dog person now. Now I'm really pissed off.

    45: Jenkem is real.

    (Edited for proper format: I don't care about Myron, if Jenkem has been perfected to be psychoactive, huffing decayed hydrocarbons is usually has a cns depressant effect--stimulant effect, I'm not really seeing it.)

    47. A Settler can just hop into your Power Armour when a bunch of Super Mutants attack.

    48: The Commonwealth is home to hundreds of "Legendary" weapons, which are often carried by mole rats. (Oh and most of them are magic, too)

    49. It takes no training to use Power-Armour, well either that or they teach law students to pilot PA at the same level that actual soldiers can.

    52. 3 trashcans and a noodle stand = a city
    53. I learned that even as an adult some things can still give you nightmares

    54. Deathclaws are cool if you bring it back an egg even through you killed their child/partner or whatever.

    55. Mercenary organisations attack people on sight for no reason, because that right there is good business.

    57. Vertibirds and Advanced PA were fully developed (well more or less) before the great war, Enclave engineers were actually monkeys who sat on their asses and didn't invent anything.
    58. If you shoot at someone and they get mad at you just wait three days then they'll forgive you.
    59. Mercenary factions can create vertibirds without any manufacturing facilities.
    60. If you're really good at shooting raiders then you can develop the ability to breath underwater.
    61. In a city infested with Super Mutants, feral ghouls and, raiders, some people will prioritise the lives of robots over real people.
    62. After the apocalypse all social issues will be replaced with ghoul racism and robot slavery.
    63. All companions are bisexual.

    64: A small, isolated group of scientists holed up underground can go on for over 200 years without inbreeding becoming an issue.
    -EDIT-
    Or maybe it is an issue, and that's why the Institute's leaders are so retarded?

    65: Being charismatic means you can wave a gun in someone's face and they immediately surrender. Because you know, waving a gun around is very charismatic.
    66: Being intelligent increases the number of parts you can slap onto a gun.

    67: Just like how now anyone can enter Power Armor without training, apparently anyone can also fly a Vertibird without any piloting skills. (we can see both Gunners and Raiders flying stolen Vertibirds in the exact same way the Brotherhood does, it's a random encounter)

    68: Buying a game doesn't mean that you need to keep it installed on your computer or ever play it again.
    69: Morrowind is Bethesda's best game and they will only get worse with time.
    70: Gunner's combat bark is "Gunners"

    70. Random wastelanders like sturges and tinker tom are smart enough to understand schematics for a state of the art teleporter and regardless of intelligence level the player character can build it.
