Fallout What would you want your exposition skeleton to be doing?

You hear the bleating of air raid sirens and see a light brighter than a thousand suns, what do?

Make the Codex Great Again! Steve gets a Kidney but I don't even get a tag. I helped put crap in Monomyth
We live in uncertain times and with increasing tensions across the world some say conflict is inevitable. If it were to get so bad that nukes started flying then it is up to those that are around to witness it to document it for those that survive. One of the best ways to do this, as we all know, is through the use of exposition skeletons.

So, Codex... What would you want YOUR exposition skeleton to be doing?

Set up a dozen of mannequins with machetes around my bathroom, teddy bears playing poker in the living room and a garden gnome with dozen of empty bottles in front of TV.

Even if my skeleton crumbles to dust, my legacy will live on in the Oxhorn's lore videos about the funniest locations.

I think my favorite example of this is from New Vegas. There's a town with a big memorial for NCR rangers that famously stood their ground there in the first battle for the dam. And just a couple of meters from it on the first floor of a building are skeletons with NCR gear and even a tape detailing ranger's last moments. Apparently the NCR somehow missed their bodies after the battle, or just could not be bothered to actually bury their heroes. Oh, Obsidian.

Quickly take a sharpie marker and write on nearest wall, in big letters "THE JEWS DID THIS". Then slump down below the writing so as to underscore the message with my skeleton

Assuming the commies only hit the airport and considering wind patterns around here and declassified FEMA documents from the Cold War, my reaction would probably be: "Oh nice, in 6 weeks when the fallout has decayed, it will finally be safe to go to the east side of Portland for the first time in years."

Well first I would be blind after having seen something brighter than a thousand suns.

Perhaps I would find a desk to sit at and make an ostentatious facepalm to address the general stupidity of mankind. That we couldn’t at least wait a couple decades till global warming would have destroyed our civilization anyway.

Actually I‘m doing a facepalm right now thinking about it. Humans are just so stupid.

When the nukes drop I am going to change my PC password to a hexadecimal code to annoy post apocalyptic scavengers.

I would not run to my computer and rest my hands on the keyboard and/or mouse.

The result would be the same tho.
