    I've never heard this song before. But I've listened to the song that (I assume) is a parody of it hundreds and hundreds of times in the last couple years. Because "Rocket 69" is one of the small selection of songs on the main Fallout 4 radio station.

    And I play a lot of Fallout 4.

    For those on POST.NEWS waiting list...see below.



    Hello Waitlisters,

    Sorry I have not written earlier - we are having deliverability issues with emails and when I send a mass email, some of you mark it as spam which, since we are a new domain, leads to being blocked by mail services and then you do not get the invitation email, so I am trying to communicate sparingly.

    We are at:

    350K waitlisted, of them

    67K have activated their account

    As of today, we have invited everyone who has signed up before the 20th. We see that many of you have not activated your accounts - there are a few reasons for that so please read the whole email.

    Many are not receiving the email - if you are not receiving the email, you will not receive the email verification email and will be stuck and not able to complete the signup process. The confirmation emails come from a different domain so you could receive this one and not the confirmation one:

    1. Check your spam folder, your updates folder, or other destinations the email might have arrived at.

    2. Some of you are on corporate networks which have marked our domain as spam. We see this a lot with Microsoft-run mail servers. Please ask your IT person to mark our domain as safe or sign up with a Gmail address (Gmail seems to be OK)

    3. 9,000 of the invited users have errors in their email (i.e. .con instead of .com). If you have not received the email, it is not in your spam folder, is not blocked by the network, and cannot sign up, it could be you spelled the email incorrectly. Try signing up again, if your email is in the system you will get an error telling you that the email exists, if not, sign up with the correct email.

    4. If you are sure you signed up before the 20th and everything is correct, try this link

    Man, the right wing got his marching orders from Elno and is turning their guns on Apple & Tim Cook. From Tucker to Far Ron to the imbecile Cotton, they all all going after Tim Cook! What a bunch of losers....

    Which is hilarious considering the lengths that Tesla has gone to get on China's good side so that they can sell their cars in China.

    That is to be expected....

    The theme behind all the Fallout games is to make fun of the Atomic Age American mindset. All the first person Fallout games have radio stations, and they have music of roughly that era.

    TBF, "human trials" could just mean they are inserting the chip into the brain. It doesn't mean the interface is actually working.

    Also, Elon is VERY inaccurate with his estimates.

    That's what I'm afraid of. And secretly hopeful for. Wait, I said that out loud? Oh no!

    That part is the actual hard part. It's what tortured dozens of monkeys to an agonizing death.

    Most definitely. Just saying the first step of human trials is generally to just insert the chip into the brain to make sure that part is safe. It isn't to test the actual interface.

    My kid played a ton of Fallout 4, and I quite enjoyed having that radio station on in the background. Along with the occasional explosion and whatnot.

    That’s one I actually loved before hearing it there, picked up an Ink Spots compilation many years ago and that particular track is my fave. I have several songs on playlists that Fallout used, and it was always fun to be in the car and have the kid go “hey, that’s a Fallout song!”
