4 years worth of stupid!

Post by lsc9x »

I've been playing this game since 2016 and have spent literally thousands of hours in game, and I just now figured out that the portable fusion reactor for your power armor is the Mr. Fusion home fusion reactor from Back To The Future.

4 years to connect the dots!

DOH!

To be fair, up until 2017 (v0.15) it was Iron Man's arc reactor ;)

1.21 Gj. lol! Thanks for pointing that out.

Technically it was 1.21 gigawatts in the movie, not gigajoules, but it is still 1.21gj!

one watt times one second is one joule

1.21 gigawatts for one second is 1.21 gigajoules

A lightning strike could be approximated as lasting one second :)

I'm no lightning expert, but that seems a very exegrated estimation. Wikipedia has this to say: "the average duration is 0.2 seconds made up from a number of much shorter flashes (strokes) of around 60 to 70 microseconds"

I knew I recognized it from somewhere. I'll probably forget by tomorrow that it's Mr. Fusion and wonder again.

dont worry it took me just as long to figure out where the reference "there is no spoon" came from . I spent the last 4 years thinking the devs had gone mad and named it jiberish

It was jiggawatts, not gigawatts.

Fun fact, in the French dubbed version, it's pronounced Jiggowatts - or gigot-watt - (and it's 2.21, not 1.21 btw). A "gigot" is what's called the upper part of the rear leg of some herbivore like lamb, goat, or deer (the part that corresponds to a human tigh). So every time doc Brown says gigot-watt ... well you get the image.
