Where's Vault Boy? NSF56K?

WHERE'S VAULT BOY?

We all pretend that Fallout 3 is an RPG, or an FPS, or an FPSRPG, or a post-apocalyptic-trading-sim but really deep down, we all know that it's just a game about collecting Vault Boy bobble-heads. Trudging through the wastelands for days, stumbling across the remains of human settlements, frantically searching high and low for that little blonde-haired guy in the blue jump-suit and ignoring anything that might actually aid in survival.

Well, those bobble-heads are real actual things so why are we restricting our head-hunting to an in-game activity? Plenty of people have bobble-heads and a suitable post-apocalyptic environment is never far from home, or work. Put two and two together and you end up with a passable way for me - and maybe you - to waste time at work.

Peruse these scenes of destruction. What happened here? Was it a nuclear war or perhaps a mutant flu virus? Never mind that now, that's not important any more. Where the hell are the vault boy bobble heads? They must be around here somewhere...

Humour me - if you've got a collectors edition of Fallout 3, find a suitable post-apocalyptic environment (your bedroom/kitchen/bathroom/livingroom/sewer/abandoned mental hospital), hide your Vault Boy bobble head in plain view, take a pic and upload it. Bonus points if you come back with radiation poisoning so I can do some tests for my research.

    Isn't getting a used bobble head like getting a used....uh...

    Yeah, I got nothing.

    My wife got me F3 for xmas, and she wanted the special edition with the bobble heads, but they were all out, and she didn't want to piss around and have to keep going back to see when they got more in, since the guy couldn't give her a straight answer to, "when will you get more in?"

    Ah, retail employees.

    Actually it's perfectly Strategic.

    I have an uber-cube. 4 cubes turned into one. SO the only opening is that panel you see, and I sit directly in front of the mac. The only vulnerability is that panel, and as such, the gun is always ready to lob darts directly into faces.

    I have 2x 22" and a 24" and a 20" iMac

    One 22 for my laptop, one 24 for my desktop, one 22 for email, and the imac.

    it's actually not that extravagant. And when you go through hundreds of emails a day, very handy.

    well it sounds like you've got it all covered, but in all seriousness you can never have enough monitors

    just think of what you could do with a little 6x8 display above the phone
