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.

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.)

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.
