    Yes, it is indeed awesome! Love the Spike and Rarity bits.
    ...Nuts. Why are you all so fast?

    Okay, well have a game instead then. The game wherein Shining Armor throws his wife over and over and you get to control her flight and direction. Hate Cadance as a character? This is your chance to crash her into black Sombra gems over and over. Love Cadance? This is your chance to go for a record in crystal heart collection. Just want to see a silly picture of Cadance justifiably angry at Shining Armor? You should also play this game.


    I also have a question I'm hoping ponythread can help me out with. Does anyone know the first fanfiction to call Derpy Hooves by name? I'm thinking it was late October or early November 2010, right after she was released, but if anyone can authoritatively point me to the first one, you'll get citation credit in my project.

    Bubbles used the name "Derpy", but not Derpy Hooves. I'm not sure about other early fanfics, nor which ones used the Hooves last name.


    Providing a little something myself, does anyone else like these? I'm not you'd call them - I'm sure there's a name for it somewhere - but they are quite catchy.

    Yeah, the whole tone of the episode really changes when you turn on the subtitles.

    S: "Oh! You there! Ponies who just got off the train! Could you do me a favor? I seem to be locked out of my city over there, somepony's put up some sort of forcefield I can't get through. Could you take a message in there for me? Tell them I'm really sorry about the whole 'dark crystal' thing. What can I say? It was the 980s. Dark crystals and eye smoke were all the rage. If you could just let me into my closet I can change out of this ridiculous outfit and we can discuss this like rational- geeze! Why are you shooting at me? I just want to talk! Wait, don't tell me those two crazy ladies from the south sent you? I don't CARE if I wasn't in compliance with the Kindomowner's Association regulations, I applied for a variance! If they don't want to show up to the monthly meetings they don't have the right to complain about the results!"

    and the big finale...

    S: "You finally took down that shield, does that mean we can talk about this? I've outlined a series of compromises that I think are fair to both parties... Hey! The Crystal Heart! Man I haven't seen that in ages. It was a wedding present from my late wife. That really takes me back. I couldn't look at it after she passed away, so I stuck it in the attic. She would have wanted it that way, she loved stairs you know. Would you find if I held it for just a moment? Hey! Did you... Did you just throw your wife at me? Why is everything glowing? I have a very unusual skin condition, please tone that down a little. Ow! Please, that really burns. Ow! Stop... You're killing me...

    No...

    All I wanted...

    ...was some screen... time..."

I've read enough Naruto fanfic to believe it is possible, though maybe not probable. (And also that any opportunity to mock him via parody should be relentlessly abused, because I'm pretty sure that would really, really, grind his gears is being laughed at and have his jumped-up-selfish-wankst mocked and belittled, because he's the sort of person now who totally deserves it.)

    Also, I refuse to throw out as ridiculously awesome concept as the sharigarn just because the wielders apart from Kakashi are depicted as pants-on-head bonkers. (Seriously, there must have been a few sane ones at some point in Uchiha history, they were basically the Konoha police.)
    Sure, he was alright until then.
    And then he got worse. Now he continues to get worse and my best metaphor is that he's kishimoto's spoilt kid.

    The real issue that arose was that he contacted the royal sisters after his banishment. Some of his smoke got in his nose, he coughed while saying "Crystals", and it came out to an unspeakable insult. They just went 'welp he's still evil'.

    QUESTION THE SECOND(ok..more of a request actually):

    I believe our resident lich has a picture explaining this phenomenon; something involving superpowers or somesuch .
    If brute force isn't working, that just means you're not using enough of it.

    When in doubt, set something on fire. If not in doubt, set something on fire anyway.

    You subscribe a level of organisation to the fandom that did not exist at that time. The name bounced around in 4chan memes and in thread semi-spontanious RPs. Fanfiction evolved slowly and haltingly, much of which was lost to time or unpublished.

    Bubbles is about as good an example as you'll get, but I remember several that existed before it did.

    Actually, you're off by at least 30 meters. The stone has enough time to reach terminal velocity so drag is a significant factor. Let's assume rock density rho=2.5 g/cm, spherical shape and radius r=4cm
    Because these variables are basically guesses, I won't bother with more then one or two significant figures from here on, so g=10 m/s^2

    this handy tool will give us terminal velocity of about V=60m/s. Without drag the rock would reach this after 6 seconds, which is less then 9, so the effect of drag is indeed noticeable.

    Because I can't be bothered to remember how to solve differential equations, let's approximate the rock's trajectory thusly: first it falls under acceleration g for t1=6 seconds, then falls with terminal velocity for t2=3 seconds. This will give us a distance a bit longer then the real answer, but with the quality of given data it's good enough.

    10*6*6/2 + 60*3 = 180 + 180 = 360 meters

    If we take a smaller rock that would more comfortably fit in a pony mouth
    r=2cm, V=45m/s, t1=4.5, t2=4.5
    10*4.5*4.5/2 + 45*4.5 = 1.5*45*4.5 = 300 meters

    So, is anypony else seeing possible underlying recurring plot points and overarching plot happening this season?

    Twilight Advanced to next level of her studies, and Luna and Celestia are doing a lot of knowing mystical mentor stuff, more so then normal, and the book felt like a big hint.

    It's true, I do subscribe too much organization in the interest of making my life easier. But Bubbles is too late. That story ended up on EQD in March, after Hasbro had already inserted back into the show with the gag in Feeling Pinkie Keen. At the time that Feeling Pinkie Keen first came out, people got excited because Derpy was in it. That means people already knew about the Derpy character including the muffins gag and the idea that she works as a mailmare because it had gotten enough attention that the animators stuck it back in.

    If there was some kind of preserved piece of fiction, especially one that came out before "Feeling Pinkie Keen" it would make a much better case that Hasbro doesn't own the character. If there isn't, I'll have to settle for an explanation about how the character evolved. I'd much prefer to cite an actual story or work of some kind than to cite the know your meme page.

    It is one of the more useful internet culture websites.
    KYM and Encyclopedia Dramatica are far, far more useful for this kind of thing than they have any right to be.
