* While a majority of the Vaults in the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' universe had sinister ulterior motives resulting in plenty of terror, ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' notably included [[http://www.falloutwiki.com/Vault_108 Vault 108]] which was assigned an Overseer expected to die of cancer within 40 months with no directives for succession or assigning positions of power, and given a main power supply intended to malfunction eighteen years before the Vault was to be opened, a backup power supply that was insufficient, an overstocked armory and no entertainment recordings. It also had a cloning lab which churned out hostile clones that murdered non-cloned residents. It was definitely intended to be one of the more chaotic Vault experiments.

* If your fever hits 108 degrees Fahrenheit, you're not likely to survive. (On the off-chance that you ''do'', you're likely to be pretty messed up, and possibly permanently disabled afterwards, because so many of your body's proteins, including the ones that make up important things like your brain, have been denatured.)

The number 108 is a significant number in Buddhism. It represents the number of temptations that humans face, which tie them to the Wheel of ''samsara''. There are many religious elements related to this number -- a bell is rung 108 times to bring in the [[JapaneseHolidays New Year in Japan]]. It is the number of beads on a Buddhist ''o-juzu'' or rosary. A classic pilgrimage in Japan visits 108 temples. Also, it's 2 to the second power times 3 to the third power -- ''obviously'' important.[[note]] But 2 and 3 are the first two prime numbers... wait, TwentyThree? [[Literature/TheIlluminatusTrilogy Oh crap!]][[/note]] Doubled, it becomes 216, which is [[NumberOfTheBeast "6 by 6 by 6"]].

* The classic Chinese novel ''Literature/WaterMargin'' describes the rise of 108 heroes who overthrow a corrupt government. [[SmallReferencePools Some Westerners]] may be more familiar with a loose adapation of the novel -- the video game series ''VideoGame/{{Suikoden}}''.

* Coincidentally, Pepsi Beverages Co typically stacks their 12-pack and 24-pack can packages in pallets with 108 cases. For the 24-packs, this is a literal value (108 cases = 108 packs); for 12-packs it's twice the units (108 cases = 216 packs). There are 9 cases per layer on these pallets and they are 12 layers tall, hence the value 108.
