Has anyone noticed that Pres. Eden always talks about his Kentucky American dream with his dog and stuff?. Well that cant be true if the bombs fell about 200 years ago-he'd be long dead so. Why would he bother running around a post apocalyptic wasteland with a feral dog? HE IS A DUMBASSS

President Eden lies, and he is aware of it. Plus he is *Spoiler Alert* a ZAX A.I. , not a human being, preventing him from even having a childhood. This makes Edens talk propaganda, and not truth in any way. It is not a flaw, it's just another evil deed of the Enclave. AngryNorwegianDude 20:59, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

spoiler alerts don't work so well when you put them right there *stop readin* did you stop readng?-DragonJTSLeave me a message 19:24, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Lmao, seriously? You were like, "Wait a second...are you sure about that president Eden?". Like AngryNorwegianDude said, he's nothing but lies and propaganda, and he knows it. SPOILER: He's also a self aware A.I., and his personality is a combination of many of the great "legendary" presidents of the past. /SPOILER. I don't see why there can't be a Kentucky though, even after the war...there's a Washington D.C. still, and a California, and a Nevada, so why not Kentucky? He was never implying he was alive before the war, just that he had a good 'ol American "50's styled" childhood. And just to let you know, not all dogs are feral...Dogmeat anyone? Not to mention all the random ones you see with scavengers.--Esscex 06:21, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Personally, I think the biggest flaw in Fallout 3 is the fact that radiation makes most animals bigger, like Giant Ants, Radscorpions & Molerats. But all it does to people is make their skin peel off in chunks. Go figure.

Yep. Radiation is a BIG flaw. Food too. I mean, who wants to eat 200 year old snack cakes? Yuk. AngryNorwegianDude 14:53, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

You got to remember the only animals that grow huge are insects. That is most likely due to the way their bodies are made......and stuff like that. I guess radiation differs from mamel to insect. though why I'v never seen a two headed man but a two headed cow...thats strange. swarm767 11:12, 5 may 2009

Looks like radiation changed the spelling of the word mammal. In all seriousness though, the biggest flaw about radiation is that 200 years later you can't walk by Vault 87, but 2 minutes after nuking Megaton you can waltz right through. LVTDUDE 15:17, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

When it comes to the radiation, you have to remember that the Fallout universe doesn't function the same as the real world. Instead it functions the way people in the 50s envisioned it. In reality there would be very little life that would be able to survive in a radiation wasteland. But in Fallout instead of killing everything the radiation caused horrible mutations, like bloat flies, rad scorps, mirelurks, and ghouls. The important thing to remember about the physics of the Fallout universe is that it isn't science, it's Science! The14th 16:03, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

Indeed, well spoken. But what do you mean by "very little life"? Only some species? Or humans, too? My post-apocalyptic zoology skills are obviously lacking... AngryNorwegianDude 17:22, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

you cant walk through megaton...sorry getting off topic but you cant swarm767

You can stand there and talk to Moira amid the dust cloud. According to the Megaton page... "The explosion also has an effect on the surrounding area in another way - while it is strangely not very radioactive, the massive amount of dust in the zone kicked up by the nuclear blast more or less permanently fogs the area with a green hue. The closer to the center of Megaton you walk, the more radiation is encountered." So, no, maybe you can't walk right through the middle of megaton, but you can walk awfully close to the blast site. Let's face it, Ten Penny tower is a short walk from Megaton and it wouldn't have survived the blast. LVTDUDE 20:33, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

I think by "very little life" he meant midgets. lol no actually I'm pretty sure he meant almost nothing left alive, except maybe roaches. Mr.goodtrips 20:59, 4 May 2009 (UTC)
