I went to Swindon once. I hope to never have to go there again.

When I've got nothing better to do at work (ie most of the time) I sometimes go on Google Streetview and cruise around a random city, pretending that I'm driving. I did that with Swindon once and it made me sad.

Why do people go on the toll road and then drive at 60?

I always assumed that I was the only person who ever used that toll road. 5 or whatever for a drive on your own private motorway: great bargain!

Given Kate is the Royal's biggest asset, she's been displayed in public remarkably few times recently.

I rather suspect she's suffering from depression. I mean, if I had people like the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh and Prince Andrew as in-laws, I imagine I'd be pretty depressed, too.

how broken is it

It repeatedly froze and crashed until I switched the video settings to lowest quality, Dogmeat has a tendency to stroll straight off the edge of rooftops (admittedly seeming to take little damage from 20 metre falls) and once I innocently sighted down a shotgun, only to be hurled thousands of feet into the air, crashing back down to my death 10 seconds later.

fallout 4 is triggering my extreme ocd hoarding behaviours and i am yet to make it out of the first town

I'm spending huge amounts of time and energy scrounging sufficient wood and steel to encircle every settlement I'm responsible for with completely impassable barriers (except for a single, heavily guarded entrance). This is because I know npc's are utter retards and have to be swaddled in bubble wrap to prevent them dying idiotic deaths, like a toddler drowning in a puddle.
