Didn't I see that guy in the latest Indiana Jones movie?
He shoulda hid in a refrigerator if he didn't want that nice suit messed up.
OH. MY. GOD!
I totally forgot about Bolo! And how much I loved Bolo! Your icon rocks.

Thanks! I wasted many hours of my childhood trying to beat dreaded Level 9.
Stupid work filter blocking images.Google (and also Flickr). Heaven forbid we accidentally see a boob.
That is a pretty rad picture, yup.
There's lots of those in the Nuclear Testing Museum in Vegas. (Which is a total mindfuck.)
The devastated house pictures sure do look amazingly familiar, what with playing Fallout 3 and all.
I wonder how many of these photos were up in the Bethesda offices while making the game.
I had the same reaction: didn't I see that house on my way to Megaton? Check the mailbox for Stimpacks!
God damn, you mean it isn't already?
I have some nice pictures of my wife, our friends and myself in Iceland in Winter. We look like a Christian Rock "Faith Plus One" album cover in it.
