Compiled from the old board:

The Science of games- Fallout: I kind of wish this involved how implausible giant scorpions are, but this is only part one.

www.gamesradar.com/science-games-fallout-part-1/

The Onion: 'Person Who Will One Day Become Warlord-Ruler Of What Was Once Nebraska Born In Omaha Hospital'

I am rewriting the setting to revolve around this guy FYI

NUKEMAP- Hours of fun nuclearsecrecy.com/nukemap/

This one is more of a 'bummer', but definitely an interesting read for the Yanks on here (and anyone else really)

One link that I really think bears some examination:

End Times Shelters for the Rich

I just love the idea here. It's so rife with possibilities for gaming.

I watched two episodes of that new show,' endtimes bunker builders' or whatever it's really called. Where this dork builds 'awesome' shelters for the vain and paranoid. Loved the conversation it started with the whole family about how to dig those pricks out of their holes. Each client had tons of guns tons of food etc etc but not one of them had any practical 'life after ' skills other than shooting people.
All history is but a prelude to the dawn

That's always been my argument. Plus when people insist gold will be great for an economic collapse, when if you think about it, without money, gold is pretty worthless. You need a government to mint coin based on gold or no one will have gold to trade with. Knowing how to grow potatoes will be more valuable than gold.

Just had some random thoughts about a post collapse society.
Watch "Double Dragon" on Netflix and maybe "The Warriors" since they're both kind of a economic fall setting. Heck, Double Dragon was such a horrible movie (plus ripped off stuff from The Warriors) that the setting it basically the only interesting part. The obviously didn't have an exodus though, so the population is still extremely high. Perhaps more similar to what a large city might be like?

Just saw the trailer for 'Chernobyl Diaries' during the Fringe Season finale.

Not that great looking.

As always the IO9 comments are unintentionally funny... Everyone appears to be used to being the smartest person in the room.
