All right--this genuinely happened to me, but it makes no sense, and no-one else has seemingly reported it, so it could be a mis-click that I never noticed. I applied all of my skill books before speaking with the Think Tank the first time in Old World Blues, and all of them wore off as usual at the same time ... or so I thought. Two days later, as in in real life, and after at least six or seven hours of gameplay, I got a random message that True Police Stories had worn off. I was in the middle of exploring the Cuckoo's Nest, and I have no recollection of using any "aid" items anytime recently, let alone within the 60 seconds this would have worn off.
So, you know, if anyone else has ever seemingly had True Police Stories last for hours and hours of game time, post it here! I will try using all of my books again to see if I get a repeat. Quarex (talk) 11:07, March 3, 2013 (UTC)
