So since it's coming up, does anybody happen to have a copy of "July 4th On The Bay"? I was able to confirm what it was called via the Wayback Machine from 2011, but of course it won't play from there.

@wraithtek: For dwellers going into the Wasteland, the easy answer for Stimpaks is to give them 25 if you can. And that's simply because they can't take 26. As for Radaway, I give my guys 15 just to be safe, but 10 would probably be more than enough since it seems like they often come back with plenty. But you're millage may vary based on how long they can survive and their stats. It may also be that the longer they are out, the more likely they are to have events that result in radiation damage, but so far I've recalled them after they've used 20+ Stimpaks and less then 10 RadAway.

From what I've seen, Stimpaks will always heal 50% of their hitpoints. So Vault Dwellers with higher levels and higher Endurance will have a larger HP pool, so Stimpaks are used less frequently since they are more effective. This means they can be out longer, getting more and potentially better stuff. And of course, higher SPECIAL stats and better weapons can mean they are less likely to fail the random events in the Wasteland and take less damage (and therefore slow the rate of Stimpak use, extending their trips).

At this point, I've got 4 guys with high quality weapons and gear running exploration rotation. And if I expect someone to return, I make sure I let them back into the Vault, get their loot, heal them up, and send them back out with a fresh stack of 25 Stims & 15 RadAway BEFORE I collect the new ones from my Med Bays so they don't get wasted. And at this point those guys have leveled up to the point that they can often go around 24 hours, with my highest currently on a 36 hour run and he still has 8 Stimpaks so I think I'll let him go longer and recall him before I go to bed.

(And capacity is 5 each by default and each room adds +10 to your capacity for the type of product they produce, regardless of upgrades or merging. Upgrades & merging Med Bays & Labs only increase the number produced at a time.)

As for my Vault, I'm now getting 12 levels deep and can't fit in one screen cap:

And while I'm not sure what the original Vault-Tec experiment was for Vault 023, but at this point it is running under the guidance that the 2nd Amendment is too soft. "You say it's a 'right'? Well in Vault 23, gun ownership is a REQUIREMENT!" We basically got hit with a bunch of random Radroach infestations starting in my training rooms on the left that would basically spread to EVERYWHERE (at the time, I didn't have enough people or guns to spare to be training, so they were all empty). But now we have a solid breading program (two rooms with 6 high Charisma dwellers each) to keep the training rooms occupied and using four explorers constantly out to bring back TONS of guns.

Oh, and while I did sometimes have people standing guard in the Vault Door, they would never be able to finish them off (which is why I've got 4 explorers instead of just 2). So instead, I've got the "2nd Amendment Diner" where our highly skilled waitstaff will gladly seat you in our "Smoking" and "Get Smoked" sections. It seemed much easier to just load them up with high damage guns and good gear and have a 6v3 fight since they were always getting past the guards anyways.

Krazy Predictions™

  1. The Miz & Damien Mizdow get into some sort of argument after the match which results in them knocking each other out simultaneously when the Mizdow copies the same move Miz is throwing at him and they both connect with each other.
  2. BOTH HiaC matches become the main event when The Authority decides to make both matches take place at the same time
  3. Falls 1 & 2 happen simultaneously in the Cesaro/Ziggler match (no clue how that would happen, but I've got nothing for #3 & decided to try to come up with a third "simultaneous" predictions)

I forgot the PPV was this weekend.

Did y'alls see the dope-ass Ziggler/Cesaro promo for their match on Sunday? How fucking hard is it to put this promo on Raw?

Well, technically the PPV match wasn't on the books until after RAW. They first had the IC title match "yesterday" on Smackdown for Cesaro to lose and THEN demand the 2-out-of-3-falls rematch on HiaC later in Smackdown. But I still agree with the "why are you expending time on this?" with both RAW & Smackdown.

The new Vaudevillians shirt is great!

Are The Vaudevillains actually enjoyed by the greater NXT universe? I remember getting a kick out of their entrance when it was posted here after their official debut (I'm a Steampunk fan, though I consider myself a B+ cosplayer at best) but didn't really think much more after. It's mainly because I don't really watch too much of the Network content, though I do figure I need to watch Monday Night Wars.

After seeing in Takeover 2 that The Vaudevillains were the losing finalists in the #1 contender's tourney, is it safe to assume that its a sign that they are getting an actual chance for a push to stay in the light? I'm mainly thinking this shirt may end up being the first wrestling shirt I purchase especially because the design on the front doesn't outright say WWE (only hints for those in the know) and I think I can get away with it just looking like another "olde timey design" shirt when casual w/ my other Steampunkers. But I'm just worried if they are something that are being laughed at or if people are honestly enjoying their gimmick.

Maybe it is because I'm 8 months into returning to watching wrestling after 15 years and even then, I recognized and enjoyed it as "improv stuntwork/acrobatics" and I think what I've seen since I came back has kind of satisfied my desire to see a bunch of interesting spots. So yeah... here are my "well, I guess..." predictions for Summerslam:

Rob Van Dam vs. Cesaro - SummerSlam Kickoff Singles Match

  • Winner (2 pts): Cesaro
  • Method of victory (2 pts): Pin

Intercontinental Champion The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler - Intercontinental Championship Match

  • Winner (2 pts): Ziggler

  • Will the briefcase be put on the line? (2 pts): No

Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton - Singles Match

  • Method of victory (2 pts): Pin

Brie Bella vs. Stephanie McMahon - Singles Match

  • Winner (2 pts): McMahon
  • Method of victory (2 pts): Pin
  • Does Nikki turn on her sister? (2 pts): No

WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar - Singles Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship

  • Winner (2 pts): Lesnar
  • Method of victory (2 pts): Pin
  • Does a No-DQ style stipulation get added? (2 pts): No
  • Does Seth Rollins Cash-in? (2 pts): No

I can't really seem to come up w/ Krazy™ Predictions that would happen during the PPV, so I'll just fill out my list with some ideas of things that I can see happen post Summerslam to at least get them in writing (even if they can't count towards earning a Krazy™ award). So... lets get Krazy™!!!

  • Johny Cage... I mean The Miz starts strong in the match controlling Ziggler for much of it, but then Ziggler manages to get in a good shot to The Miz's Money Maker and The Miz just decides to leave the ring and take a count-out.
  • Bad News Barrett, saying what everybody is thinking, delivers some #BadNews that nobody actually cares about The Miz, his Money Maker, or his acting career.
  • After Brock Lesnar wins the title, The Authority decide to keep the WWE World HW Champ title "special" and explicitly come out to say they are reversing their "Daniel Bryan Rule" that they used to strip him of the titles for not being available to defend it for 30 days. This means Brock can hold the title (and Paul Haymen carrying the belt on stage at RAW) but not have to show up to defend it until a few PPVs later (despite the next PPV being called "Night of Champions").

Man, that actually made me kind of depressed trying to think of a realistic set of results. Hopefully something Krazy™ will happen and I can find my smile again.

  1. Something happens to cause a top turnbuckle to break, leaving the top rope resting on the mat. This leads to Cesaro to Swing an opponent "over the top rope" for an elimination
  2. Heyman's Plan C is countered by Plan R-V-D <o> |o| <o> |o| <o>
  3. The Miz finds & puts on Cody Rhode's plastic mask back stage but then Stardust blows star glitter in his face & takes it back.
