My First (And Worst) Fallout Experience

My First Fallout Experience Was The Absolute Worst Time I’ve Ever Had Playing…

I’ve been a die hard fan of the Fallout franchise for many, many years now. By far it’s my favorite game series and one I’ve played over again easily a dozen times each. Typically when someone finds their favorite game it’s a fantastic and exciting experience, for me, not so much. I was unfortunate enough to experience the absolute worst the wasteland had to offer on my very first run through, and I’m talking RIGHT AWAY. An experience I’ve never seen anything come close to in my near 100 following play throughs of the series, you’d think I had a real life Luck of zero!

A few things to keep in mind before I get into it:

• The copy of Fallout 3 I purchased came with all the DLC on a second disc .

• I used to keep my TV relatively dark to get away with playing it last midnight on school nights.

Alright, so the year is 2010. I was the absolute last of my friends to play Fallout 3. I decided to pick it up from my local Game Stop after hearing my cousin talk it up for quite some time. Opting for the slightly more expensive Game Of The Year edition, I got home and began installing the DLC from the second disc. Later in the evening once everything was installed I began my journey into the Fallout universe.

Upon starting the game everything ran like expected, Tunnel Snakes, GOAT tests, Overseer , all that good stuff. Then, came time to exit the vault. Stepping into the bright blinding light of the wasteland with nothing but my vault security armor and a baseball bat, I was beyond excited to explore the Capitol Wastes. That lasted all about 15 seconds however. Taking roughly 10 steps from the door, I began to walk toward a tall black figure that stood just off to the right of the vault entrance. Immediately without haste I was greeted with a barge of fire flying towards me. That’s right, the very first enemy I encountered in Fallout was none other than an Enclave Hellfire Trooper. So here I am, level 1, never played before, wood baseball bat, and being repeatedly spawned in front of and killed by a Hellfire Trooper with a heavy incinerator. Fortunately after a dozen deaths and a few tears, I realized I had saved before I left the vault while figuring out the controls.

After loading a new save file and exiting the vault for a second time, I was able to leave in peace! Arriving in megaton I began the main quest of finding my dad. However once again my game wasn’t having it. After informing Lucas Simms about Mister Burke’s offer to blow up the town, I met the two at the saloon, as you do. Only before Burke shot Simms, Simms’ body vanished! Burke shot thin air and Lucas was nowhere to be found for the rest of the game…. alright… guess he’s dead then. Moving on. Exiting the building and coming to realize the day cycle exists, I began wandering aimlessly around Megaton unable to see a damn thing in the dark.

The run from hell wasn’t over there however, opting to help out Moira after the whole Mister Burke incident, I began to make my way down to Super Duper Mart. Now, while I was warned about the vast amount of Raiders that can be found there, what I was not warned about was a damn Deathclaw. Upon arriving to the parking lot I was greeted with the body of a wastelands being thrown about as the giant mutated monstrosity charged toward me. After several deaths, my level 2 ass had just about had enough. Finally having the sense to just turn around and run the opposite direction upon spawning, I opted to run down the map and AROUND Super Duper Mart, just far enough to not be noticed by the Deathclaw.

My plan was fool proof, until I began to get a little too close to the parking lot once again. Finding myself in [Caution] I slowly began to back away toward the bridge just south of the store before turning and running away in full sprint… well, Fallout 3’s equivalent to a “full sprint”. Sprinting right into a Mirelurk King. Keep in mind, I didn’t even know better than to try and engage it! So here I am running away from the Mirelurk King back TOWARDS the Deathclaw just praying one of them would target the other. Fortunately for me the Deathclaw wasn’t having it and decided to attack the king, providing me just enough time to get the fuck outta dodge.

After this, I promptly turned off my Xbox wondering if I had just wasted $40. It would take me about a month or two before I finally gave it a second chance with a new profile and a normal ass play through. Here I am 10+ years later still playing Fallout 3 and every other Fallout title 100 times over, yet I’ve never once experienced anything that has even come close to that first one.

I’d love to hear about your first and/or worst Fallout experience! Let me know if you’ve ever experienced anything like what I went through my first time around and be sure to check out more Fallout right here!

Iconic Internet Names

As an adult, one of the first and most important decisions you have to make is who your internet provider will be. However once that has been decided the next most important thing will define how you’re perceived by your neighbors and house guests alike, naming your internet router. As somebody who jumped on this opportunity and never looked back, naming my home internet “Router? I hardly know her!”, I feel I am more than qualified to guide you down this path of immortality.

Literally From My Iphone

1. Girls Gone Wireless

Awwmemes.com

Imature yet cunning! For the generation that grew up watching televised spring break bikini shows and sneaking onto the world wide web to type in everyone’s favorite three word combination, Girls Gone Wild, this name provides great nostalgia and childish giggles by who view it!

2.Bill Clinternet

Reddit.com

C’mon, we all know what you’re using this one for! A clever play on words, this router name is best put to use in an office setting. Perfect for dress shopping or even just deleting email, Bill Clinternet works best as a private WiFi server, however, may I suggest Monica LuPasskey as the password?

3. It Hurts When IP

The Sun

You can’t beat the classics! If you’ve ever seen a meme post about WiFi names I’m sure this one has graced your screen. A grade A example of less is more, It hurts when IP is an instant classic that has definitely prompts a quick screenshot! Immature, yes. Worth It, Hell yes. This one is bound to show your neighbors your true maturity level. Bonus! If your neighbors are not in the know about what an IP Address is, you’ll get double the judgement.

4. No More Mr. WiFi

Twitter.com @KunKart

This one’s for you fellow music fanatic! Now yes, yes “No more Mr. Nice guy” is a very common yet cheesy quote. However, For argument’s sake, lakes just say I hope and pray Alice Cooper has this as his home router name! No More Mr. WiFi just will instantly infect those who see it with Alice Cooper on the brain and quite honestly kind of sounds like Weird Al’s next big hit!

5. _______________ Police

memeguy.com

A more niche entry, So niche in fact I couldn’t even find an imagen of it! While “Police Surveillance Van” is fun, it is also highly cliche. One I have experienced in real life by a neighbor I’ve never met but greatly respect. The router simply read the name of my city police department. So for example if you live in Dallas, the WiFi would be named “Dallas Police Department”. Working exponentially better for small towns, I can safely say it caught me by surprise the first time I saw it.

10/10 would recommend.

6. Banter

Perfect for apartment life, if you see the opportunity take it! Who needs chat rooms, forums, or even social media? As long as you have a connection and a gullible neighbor, you’ve got hours of entertainment! Harder and harder to come by in 2020, Should you find yourself in this situation, please for the rest of us, document it with plenty of images!

7. You Are The Weakest Linksys

Pintrest.com

This one is for everyone who grew up with that little blue box! Before we dive into this, Whoever used this idea in the picture above, props to you but next time double check your spelling. You are the weakest Linksys is phenomenal on so many levels. A major shout out to anyone who grew up watching the popular game show Weakest Link, as well as the niche group of select individuals who have used/heard of Linksys! This wins all the creativity points for cleverness!

Honorable Mentions

It is at this point I must limit this list to 8 items, or run the risk of an endless selection of dumb names. Below are just a few of the creative internet names that almost made the list!

  • Get Your Own Damn WiFi
  • I’m Cheating On my WiFi
  • The Promise LAN
  • Wu-Tang LAN
  • LANdo Calrissian
  • Keep It On The Download
  • My Own Damn WiFi!
  • John Wilkes Bluetooth
  • Yell “Penis” For Password

8. Loading, Scanning, Virus

HowToMob

Am I cheating cramming these into one entry, maybe. Do I care, No. All getting across the same point, presumably scaring the illinformed. Make anyone within connection range believe they are either waiting for possible connections to load(Searching…), waiting for their device to connect(Connecting…), or above all else thinking they may have accidentally been connected to a virus infected server. Be it “Virus” or “Trojan.exe” knowing you may have given those looking for a quick free connection a momentary gasp of shock is the ultimate sign of a job well done.

Let me know your WiFi names in the comments below and be sure to follow along with StylesRebelRadio.com for more exclusive content!

The Night I Locked Myself Out Of My House

First Class locksmith

Picture it, the mean streets of Lincoln Nebraska , 2016. I had just finished my shift at the smelling salts factory and was on my way home for the evening. Roughly seven miles from my house I decided to pull through the drive-thru of the nearest Taco Bell/ KFC joint restaurant. As I rolled up to the window I decided to order a number 13 combo, Two hard shell taco supremes with a large Baja Blast and a side of the Colonel’s famous home style gravy on the side. The order came to a total of $13.76 which I respectfully paid for with a crisp twenty dollar bill. Pulling into the nearest parking space, I decided to eat my meal in my car before continuing my drive home. As I finished my meal I placed the remaining crumbs along with the associated wrappers in the empty yellow dollar store bag that had been lying in the backseat of my 2003 Chevy Cobalt. As I began pulling out of the parking lot I decided to turn on my car radio where I was pleasantly greeted by the 1999 Grammy award winning hit single Smooth by Carlos Santana featuring the vocals of Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty . The dolsot yet spicy tones soothed me on my drive home.

Upon arriving at my house, I park my car, gather my belongings and get set to head inside. At my door I reach down to grab the keys off of my belt loop only to find the keys to my house are missing. In a panic I began looking around in the driveway as well as the floorboards of my car in search of my house keys. After 3 continuous hours of searching I finally had stumbled across my keys in the small herb garden outside of my front door. A sigh of relief swept over me as I began to raise my keys to the lock. In horrifying shock I noticed that my keys were not unlocking the door! I began pulling and yanking on the door frantically pleading for it to open. Hours had gone by and all of my neighbors had gathered outside to see what was happening. Finally reaching my breaking point, I decided to grab the can of body spray from my car along with my lighter. As I prepared to utilize my last resort, I sparked up my lighter. It was then out of the corner of my eye I realized the address. This was not my house.

Sluggishly returning to my car, I fired up the ignition and began my drive to my actual house. I arrived at the house that showed my home address, unlocked the door and collapsed in exhaustion on my furnitureless living room floor.

6 Legendary Rock Bands And How They Got Their Names

Over the years there have been countless bands to climb the rock ranks to legendary status and become household names. But have you ever actually stopped to think about some of these household names? Compiled below are 6 legendary rock bands and how they got their names!

1. AC/DC

The Scottish/Australian rock group originated from brothers Angus and Malcolm Young who, upon seeing their brother George Young joining popular Australian group The Easybeats, decided to form a rock group of their own. The two would take on the name AC/DC upon a suggestion from their sister Margaret, who had seen the lettering on their home sewing machine. In case you’ve never found yourself in a situation where you needed to know, AC stands for alternating current while DC stands for Direct current when referring to electrical flow. Bonus fact time! In Australia the band is also commonly referred to as “Acca Dacca”

2. Cream

Ultimate Classic Rock

The english rock band comprised of Eric Clapton, Jake Bruce and Ginger Baker were destined for greatness right off the bat. With Clapton fresh off a run with The Yardbyrds, Baker earing an elite reputation for himself as the drummer for The Graham Bond Organisation alongside future future Cream-mate Jake Bruce. The band was formed as a gathering of the elite of the elite, the name Cream derives from the idea they are the “Cream of The Crop” in the music industry, a statement i’m sure Macho ManRandy Savage would definatelt agree with.

3. Golden Earring

The Math factor Podcast

Golden Earring, one of the most underrated bands of all time in my opinion, originally went under the name The Tornados before realizing the name had already been in use. The band would rename themselves “The Golden Earrings” after an instrumental piece by The Hunters of the same name. Eventually the band would settle on just simply Golden Earring.

4. Journey

journeyworld.com

Forming in 1973 under the name The Golden Gate Rhythm Section the band decided to hold a radio contest and allow the fans to select their new name. Not thrilled with any of the results that came back, it was a roadie who had been traveling with the band that suggested the name Journey. The band all agreed and have been rocking with us ever since!

5. Led Zeppelin

Tone Deaf

Led Zeppelin… Really think about that for a second, a household name most of us say on a regular basis without even batting an eye. The story goes that Robert Plant was ready to start a musical supergroup and was kicking around this idea with Who drummer Keith Moon who supposedly told him his idea would go down like a lead balloon. Balloon, Zeppelin, same thing right? Well Plant sure seemed to think so anyway.

6. The Foo Fighters

Mojo Magazine

Not one, not two but three legendary rock bands lace Dave Grohl’s historic career! How does the drummer from one o if not THE most over band of the 90s step out and begin a band of his own outside of that shadow? Nevertheless one with as clever and catchy name as the simply titled Nirvana. Two words, Foo Fighters. Admit it if you’ve ever heard the name Foo Fighters on the radio, fan or not, you’ve wondered where the hell that name could come from! Really it’s quite simple, UFOs. That’s right, Foo Fighters is allegedly a name that was given by allied aircraft pilots for unidentified flying objects. Meaning the Foo Fighters are quite literally out if this world!

Regardless of how they acquired these names one thing is always going to be for certain. If the word, object, or idea your band was named after takes a backseat to your band in terms of word association or recognition, you’ve made it.
