Have you ever wondered why Vault Boy is giving a thumbs up? It has been estimated that if the mushroom cloud from an atomic explosion can be covered by your thumb, you are a safe distance away.

If it appears larger than your thumb, you are within the danger zone. So, Vault Boy is using his thumb to determine whether he should evacuate!

Did you know? Vault Boy has a female counterpart named Vault Girl. Can you adjust this tutorial to draw her? Try adding long hair.
