    28. A million people country doesn't use any vehicles except some vertibirds and apparently transports the military gear, supplies, units, etc. on brahmins? Big horners? On foot?

    29. The most elite soldiers of the Legion chose welding poles as their choice of weaponry.

    30. Most of the BoS members are clad in power armor, especially when leaving the bunker, yet most of their injuries are inflicted by bark scorpions stingers.

    31.Houses made of plywood tend to survive 200 years in the middle of a nuclear desert.

    32. Bubblegum and cookies are edable 200 years after they've been produced.

    33. The best way to place a main entry point into the enemy territory is in a hole in the gorund, overlooked by a truck full of radioactive waste and closed off by water and 100 meter cliffs.

    28.You find truks in Maccarran and there are documents that say that the NCR has functoning cars.
    29. THermic Lances, chainsaws, caribines and Balistic fists are wielding poles?
    31. Those houses are probably and logicaly post war shelters.
    32. Bubblegum lasts a lot, and the snack cakes are barely useful as healing items

    My bad.

    WELDING. http://fallout.wikia.com/wiki/Thermic_lance

    They are clearly the regular pre-war houses made of industrial plywood, windows, roofs, etc. LoL, even short white wooden fences.

    They are still edable and are there after 200 years. Cookies, Mac n' Cheese, bubblegum, Dandy Boy Apples, Cram, .......... No matter what you say, that's just retarded.

    31. It's been 200 years and the region has been occupied by the NCR, I don't see it being imposible for them to at least make mainentance to old houses.

    32. they are junk food and they are a reference to the myth that those things last for eons. They are useless as healing items and soem of them even cause dehydratation.

    Light clothing makes it easier to scout certain areas and is more comfortable to wear in the desert.

    Yeah, while I found it kinda dumb that rangers wore essentially cowboy outfits at first, it kinda fits when you consider they aren't supposed to be frontline charge headfirst troops.

    The word is EDIBLE and it just means "capable of being eaten". Open a fucking book some time.

    Technically, everything that you can swallow is edible.
    IRL I can eat fucking small rocks if I feel like it.

    The benefits of eating those rocks are not all that impressive tho, JUST LIKE THE GUM AND PREWAR FOOD IN THE GAME HAVING LITTLE BENEFIT.

    btw, In multiple playthroughs I've seen maybe 2 thermic lances used by anyone ever and I've killed thousands of legion NPCs.
    Good job dragging that stupid crap into yet another argument only to overemphasize it to a ridiculous degree as if it means squat in the face of overwhelming instances of NPCs using realistic weapons that fit in the setting perfectly.

    That is not correct.
    'Edible' does specifically refer to stuff that is fit to be eaten, that fulfills nutritional needs and does not poison you.
    Rocks are not edible, and I'm pretty sure that most 200 years old stuff is inedible, too.

    Because we can assume that without preservatives, most perishable food-stuffs would have long decomposed 200 years later, it's common sense people.

    are poisonous mushrooms inedible? I've seen a lot of those eaten.

    there are plenty of things which fulfill no nutritional need that people still eat and I don't go about calling them inedible.

    By your standards, what would define the fitness of an object in terms of it's ability to be eaten other than size?

    Poisonous mushrooms are inedible.
    Edible mushrooms are spefically called 'edible' as opposed to poisonous mushrooms.
    'Edible' is defined as 'fit for eating', and 'eating' is defined by 'ingestion of food for nutritional needs'.
    So technically, swallowing stones is not exactly 'eating', although some animals do swallow stones to help digestion.

    Not all rangers are "NCR Veteran Rangers" with full combat armor - didn't they make that clear with the giant "fucking" statues at the Mojave outpost? While they are allied and both answer to the same chain of command, the Desert Rangers and the NCR Rangers still maintain distinct and separate mission profiles.
