- Now that this site’s been secured, you should return to the airport immediately. I’ll remain on watch until the vertibirds arrive.
- Is that really necessary?
- Absolutely. Elder Maxson’s orders were quite clear. I’m not to take my eyes off of these bombs until every one of them has been counted, tested and loaded.
If we want Liberty Prime to reach peak fighting efficiency, we can’t afford to lose this stockpile. Dismissed, Knight.

“The Commonwealth itself is nothing but a war-ravaged quagmire of violence and despair. Inside the sealed environment of the Institute, however… but the Institute’s affairs are none of your concern. Your undeveloped mind couldn’t even begin to comprehend what we’ve accomplished.”

So, my aunt gave me one of those Amazon Echos for Christmas.

It’s a pretty cool thing, and I love the concept of it. However, I haven’t set it up yet because it totally creeps me out.

Not that I do anything wrong that I wouldn’t want to be “listened in” on, but just the fact that there’s something in my house actively collecting data on me is weird to me. I know that my cell phone already does this, of course. However, I feel like Alexa takes it to another level.

It could be my deep seeded fear of robots (yes, that’s a thing) and Arrificial Intelligence, or it could be the “Big Brother” thing that I don’t like.

This new toy is just so cool and I want to set it up. But I haven’t been able to make myself do it yet.
