** Actually Joshua Graham specifies the Divide is in Death Valley national park, which is west, whereas the Sierra Madre is only indicated to be east of New Vegas. Incidentally however Big Mt i located at the southern end of the Divide, meaning it is also in Death Valley.

[[WMG: The White Legs have come into contact with [[TheSlenderManMythos the Operator]]...]]
... and it didn't do them well. They are, after all, {{AxCrazy}} and have forgotten how to sustain themselves (which is reminiscent of the amnesia often suffered after meeting Slendy), which is why they can only survive through raiding caravans or other factions. Plus, some of the murals depict a black figure with strangely long limbs that also look like roots or tentacles.

** Not to mention that he has a gun called the 'Mysterious Magnum' that plays the Mysterious Stranger theme when drawn or holstered.

[[WMG: The Lonesome Drifter's father is the Mysterious Stranger]]
In The Lonesome Drifter's dialogue, he says that his mother told him that his fater was 'Mysterious', and that he was a stranger.

There exists three versions of an unfinished MarkTwain work, which had two different titles. It is called ''Literature/TheMysteriousStranger''. The plot is simple: a charming teenager comes up to three boys and claims to be an angel named Satan. He proceeds to show them what a horrible world we live in. It's other title? No. 44. In the Fallout games, The Mysterious Stranger wields a .44 Magnum. Perhaps, in Fallout, God and Satan exist, and SatanIsGood and GodIsEvil. After all, it is unclear which side began the war that ended the world. God promised not to flood the Earth again in the Bible, but, if there's anything God is good at, it's being a dick. So, using the loophole he gave himself, he detonated a single nuke, letting humanity do the rest. Meanwhile, Satan, trying to do some good in the irradiated hellhole that is now Earth, finds the most useful and not suicidal incompetent person around (the Courier, this time) and pops up when he's needed. Or, seeing as God makes multiple bets with Satan in the Bible (Job is a bet, and the Dead Sea Scrolls show that the whole "kill your son" thing with Abraham was another bet), it's possible that this all because of one of their retarded bets. Perhaps something along the lines of "Hey, I bet these idiots will blow up their entire planet if one little explosion happens" or "I bet you can't randomly pop up and kill people without confusing the hell out of the person you help". Really, either one makes sense. Either God's a dick (millions dead and a personal endorsement of child murder and slavery, and that's just from the Bible), or God and Satan are dicks (again, Bible). Plus, the entire idea that everything is because of a damn bet fits with the culture of New Vegas.

* Not really. The last survivor of Vault 11 is '''you'''!. Did you watch the opening cutscene? It shows the Vault 11 door in one slide.

[[WMG: Benny is Butch's father.]]

Butch's fater never appeared in Fallout 3, and Benny look like he could be his father. How he escaped Vault 101, is when James and your character first entered the vault. Then he made his way to the Mojave and got Maria and his suit, and destroyed his vault suit so no one can track him.

* Father Elijah is the obsessive, perfectionist wiki-reader. His escape from [[spoiler:Big MT]] reads as though he was consulting a walkthrough to pull off the perfect move at every opportunity, and his legion of bomb-collared slaves, collating data through trial, error, and mass slaughter, could be seen as the frenzied rush of editing, discovery, and blundering into undocumented deathtraps that accompanies the release of new content. The lengths to which he'll go to acquire rare Old World tech are reminiscent of the byzantine steps some players go through to obtain rare equipment, to the point of reverse-pickpocketing better guns into someone's inventory. In combat, he's hopelessly min-maxed, wielding one of the game's most powerful weapons and wearing one of the game's worst outfits - though, he's also genre-savvy enough to not fight you unless he absolutely has to [[spoiler:(in order to prevent his precious vault riches from being LostForever)]]. Despite all this, though, he's not going to kill the player nearly as often as his/her own attempts to [[spoiler:escape with the Vault's loot]] - something you'd think obviously impossible, if not for the wiki telling you it can be done...

The number 218 fits their KDR perfectly with five losses, and the distance from Vault 34 to Nellis isn't that long, even if proper roads are used. Given their way of life, I consider it reasonable to assume that they would have gone straight for the nearest military point of interest.

[[WMG: There must have been a quest where you go find Elvis holotapes for the King]]
And you get to hear them on the radio too....but that might have been too expensive just for a ShoutOut. Also a wasted opportunity for the King to say "Thank you, thank you very much".
