1. scales only work with a government. too easy to make cheating scales. Think pawnshops when they buy scrap gold. They will use bizarre conversion units on desperate people.(usually minimally educated)

  2. There's a lot more government in fallout than you'd think. A town with a mayor, or a tribe with a chief is still a government. And considering they all have to trade resources with each other, it gets more and more difficult to completely scam people.

  3. The problem isn't local time to local town is that these places have to interact with each other. There needs to be a standardized weight unit across the entire wasteland. And who's enforcing that? And who's regulating the weights would be incredibly difficult. However, it would not be incredibly difficult to just count out 100 and say here's 100 caps. I think it's rare for the average person to be making purchases much higher than a couple dozen caps per day. I mean you kill an enemy and sometimes you only find 10 caps on them.

  8. No, this line is meant to imply obliviousness to Noelle's crushitude

  9. I think this movie would've been infinitely better if Lou Albano wasn't dead.

  10. For those who want their consciousness copied or moved to something, how do you get past the likelihood that it's no longer "you"? Do you just accept death in exchange for a copy of you continuing?

  11. You don't get past that, you realize that you're not real.

  12. Consciousness isn't, or the sense of self and individuality isn't?
