Headcrabs roasting on a open fire:
After you blow up the chopper, make for the gate. Inside there, use the boat as a booster to jump into the higher tunnel. Inside it, you'll see a pool of nuclear waste. Swim to the other side of it, and head down the tunnel on the left. You'll find a alien slave cooking headcrabs on a stick! Not too useful, but funny.

Special thanks to Revolution readers Seth, wickedless and Richard Eastwood!
