Does anybody know what purpose this serves? Just dead inventory weight right now. --L3377MA573R 00:12, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

Planescape Torment Edit
Maybe this item is a refenrence to Planescape Torment. There existed an item called "Jar of Embalming Fluid". If I'm not mistaken it even looked similar. Warb10 21:07, July 31, 2011 (UTC)
- It might also be a reference to reality where embalming fluid also exists. 184.108.40.206 00:18, August 1, 2011 (UTC)
It could be a reference to this one time in band camp I was in the girls cabin and found this box and it had this green goo, I thought it was embalming fluid, so it makes sense, I think we should add that, it's a pretty obvious reference. --Felix Brehh 17:29, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
Is it likely that the Enbalming Fluid represents a part of the 'creation' of Ghost people? It would explain their extreme resilience, in a sci-fi kind of way, and the way that a limb needs to be torn off (spilling all of the enbalming fluid out) to disable them. The liquid is also a similar colour to the 'blood' of the Ghost people. This essentially makes the Ghost people mummies of a strange sort. Perhaps as the Cloud corrodes away their skin, the mummification preserves their vital organs and muscles. In terms of real-world science it's utterly ridiculous, but in terms of Fallout science, it's more than likely.
It is also noted that Ghost People take prisoners, perhaps to create more of themselves via this enbalming process, which would explain the surgery-like atmosphere in which this item is found.
Is this worth adding? I've become cautious about adding stuff to articles, because almost everything added by an anonymous contributor seems to be removed on wikis like this.
