SO... WHAT'S IS THIS "FALLOUT" YOU SPEAK OF?
It's not just a post-Apocalyptic video game in which you seek to survive in a post-modern, nouveaux-retro environment... although that is kind of cool and definitely fun. But that has something to do with it... Travel back in time to post WWII America, when war became more than just weaponry... it became sophisticated science. Enter the Cold War era - basically everyone is threatening to drop nuclear bombs on everybody else...
A fallout shelter is a civil defense measure intended to reduce casualties in a nuclear war. It is designed to allow those inside it to avoid exposure to harmful fallout from a nuclear blast and its likely aftermath of radiation until radioactivity has dropped to a safer level. A basic fallout shelter consists of shielding that reduces gamma-ray exposure.
Calm down there, Frederich von Jumpsthegun... OUR Fallout shelter is different. First, we are not expecting any nuclear blasts. Second, it's really just an old auto parts building that has been renovated into a state-of-the-art flop pad for the youth of FBC Mexico. And third, we STOLE the name, but we designed the concept.
Life is not easy. Sometimes it can feel like a battlefield and you are surrounded, at the end of every gun barrel, cannon ball and sword. Sometimes, it feels like everything is about to cave, not only around you but on top of you. That's when you need a safe place, some place to shelter you from the shards, debris and flack that is heading your way.
