Sierra Army Depot, trying to extract Myron's brain Edit

Nobody else seems to have had this problem. When I put Myron in the extraction room and give the computer instructions to extract his brain, all that happens is that he dies but I get no brain. the message 'Extraction Failed' comes up on the computer's screen. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I've tried having him in my party, telling him to wait, moving him closer to the table, all sorts. No success. Do I need high science skill? Please, this is really bothering me because I need a brain to put in Skynet and my science skill isn't high enough to retrieve a cybernetic brain. So a human brain is my only option. And pulling Myron's brain out and giving it to a much better companion seems a fitting end for him. --Peakey (talk) 12:02, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

This is supposed to happen, there is no way to extract his brain and have him live.The lone wanderer's bad-ass grandma (talk) 15:22, September 4, 2012 (UTC)

No, you don't understand. I'm not trying to keep him alive. I'm trying to kill him and take his brain, but there is no brain there. All I get is 'extraction failed' and no brain. I need his brain for Skynet! I want the little bastard to die so that Skynet gets a functioning brain. Does having the Bloody Mess perk prevent a brain from being recovered? --Peakey (talk) 17:35, September 4, 2012 (UTC)
