I'm a little bit suspicious about the TV advertisement for Vault 13. The advertisement shows a map of the vault with an aerial view of its location, in Mt. Whitney. The words 'Vault of the Future' flash at the top of the screen. Is it really the vault of the future? It seems no different than the other vaults. That, and why is an ad for Vault 13 even airing in the Bakersfield area when they have Vault 12 right below their feet? President Richardson Jr. claimed it to be the control group of the social experiment, but we know that due to the presence of Vault 8, it's not the only control vault. The extended isolation experiment theory is reasonable, but maybe that's just speculation. Maybe the president didn't know what he was talking about. What if there wasn't even a social experiment, just a bunch of theatrical malfunctions? The line could very well be a lie. If we discount Fallout 3, 4 and parts of New Vegas from the canon, it could very well be.
