Corpse Run 132: The nom nom diet



So, Katie Tiedrich from Awkward Zombie made this strip last week about being overencumbered in Fallout. I figured, "Hey, I'm playing Fallout right now, why don't I join the overencumbered party?"

Rather than ditching useless items like empty bottles, scrap parts, and coffee mugs, I'll usually turn to eating my irradiated foods to lose weight. I guess I'm not "losing" the weight, technically, but carrying stuff in le belly must make it easier for my PC to walk.

On the other hand, when I cram a bunch of food down my throat in real life, I often feel like walking becomes more difficult.

Just another example of how games provide a wonderful escape, I guess.

On the customer front, here's a fun little exchange I had the other day:

A customer was looking at surge protectors when I asked him if he needed help. He said that he was just comparing features, and that he'd grab me when he had a question. Normally when this happens, the customer is generally knowledgeable about technology. I let him be.

About ten minutes later he grabbed me and offered up this gem of a question: "Do these surge protectors work with United States outlets?"

In case you don't know, I live in the US. My brain... hurts.

One last thing. Nick, if you're reading this right now, you're a monster. How could you flush those lyrics down the toilet?! I can't even begin to explain how disappointed I am.

And Nick? I think we just confused the heck out of everyone else. Keep being evil.




If that is the only food there is, then it is better not to have food at all. - Michael Courouleau
