sole survivor at the museum of witchcraft: dude this place is creepy. i keep hearing these heavy footsteps…. hancock you got anything to take the edge off?
TIL king Gustav III of Sweden commuted the death sentences of a set of twins to life imprisonment if one drank 3 pots of coffee and the other drank 3 pots of tea to test the effects of the newly introduced coffee.
Okay but what this doesn’t say is that they had to drink three pots everyday, for the rest of their lives. The point was to see which of them died first and if coffee was dangerous.
Both supervising doctors died before their patients did, and the tea drinker was the first of the two to die at age 83. It’s not known when the coffee drinker died.
It made him too powerful and he’s still out there
it’s not known if he died

Notes on worldbuilding:
Fallout: We use bottlecaps because they kinda look like coins and we don’t have enough technology to make more bottlecaps. Beggars can’t be choosers.
Fallout 2: We have tech AND society to make actual money! Bottlecaps are obsolete, get with the times, man.
Fallout 3: Guys, bottlecaps! Remember? Bottlecaps? We’re totally like a good ol’ fallout game now!
New Vegas: Ah, yes, NCR dollars, Legion’s coins… the signs of society raising from it’s knees. But in the wild wastelands we, the roaming traders, still deal in caps.
Fallout 4: GUYS! BOTTLECAPS! THAT’S WHAT THIS GAME IS ABOUT, RIGHT? ALSO, REMEMBER NUKA-COLA?
what it means: the massive shift in tone, themes, and general disregard of canon compliance in favour of a whacky FPS game in a fun setting makes fallout 3 and 4 feel massively detached from the original games. paired with the general weak writing and lack of rpg elements, it feels like a disgrace to not only the classic games that the series claims to be built from but to the genre as a whole as well.
what bethesda thinks it means: those mean, ungrateful, cruel fans want to see the hubologists again so we’ll add a half-baked cameo in the nuka world dlc
