Gliese 581 is also a red dwarf, which makes the star smaller and cooler. Therefore Gliese 581-g has to have a closer position to Gliese 581 in order to have the right temperature for liquid water. A star is a position like that would of course be easier to control by Celestia’s magic in comparison to our Sun (A Yellow Dwarf).

First, off I have never heard of the term “Yellow Dwarf”.

Second, if the sun in Equestria was a Red Dwarf, the sun would not look bright and yellow like ours.

Actually, our sun burns white, but our atmosphere makes it look yellow. Anyways, our sun looks red, orange, and yellow depending on the time of day. So, who knows, It might look the same.

Well, you guise got to my favorite topic!
My headcannon is as follows-
There is a dimention for every “standard shape” as dominant. For us, Its humanOid. The pony Planet, gaia, and the universe around it, has “equine” as standard. Humans have crossed paths with ponies before. But, Gaia was formed when “the one” came to a lonely yellow dwarf and, with her magic, created a swirling mass of vitality(law of conservatoin of life force, vitality is soul stuff) and set rock around it. A powerful ward was put around Gaia to protect from solar and cosmic activity, and six alicorns were made from the earth, light, shadow, water ,fire, and air.they were put in charge of Gaia until the return of the one. The earth alicorn, Petros, created the earth pony, to which the air alicorn, Zephyr, created the pegasus and the light alicorn, Celestia, created the unicorn.
Fast forward. The dracconus (i spelled it wrong i know) invade from a nearby planet, and the Ancient 6 all dissapear, except Celestia and luna. The dracconus were wiped to extincion except discord, their king. Celestia still blames the “catyclism” period on discord.
Wow. I made this up as i went. I think ill make a full lengh fanfic on this!

Finally got around to making a draft of that questionnaire.

Just a draft. I pulled items from bijutdo’s poll along with some other surveys I found on EqD. At Algernon’s suggestion, don’t leave comments on the thread (unless you already have another comment to go with the current flow/topic.) PM me what you think or request editorship on the doc.


As for the topic at hand, I’m glad you guys are enjoying it, but astronomy isn’t my interest or my expertise. Neither is headcanon.

I’ll leave some color for the thread instead, and you guys can keep up the topic. Sounds like it’s a good ’un.


Can’t unhear how much Rod Stewart reminds me of Donald Duck…

I just watched the movie Heat and that got me thinking that we should pull a heist. I got the perfect target. I need 5 guys plus myself to pull this off so here is how it’s going down.

(Note, you will read the following in Robert Deniro’s voice)


Okay, pack your bags boys cause we’re hitting a magical place called Equestria. Don’t get your knicers in a twist, we do this right and no pony gets so much of as a scratch on them.

Hitting a bank? Safe? Royal Treasury? No. Rarity’s Boutique. Wondering why? That’s why I’m planning this op and you ain’t. We hit the mountains surrounding Ponyville in Grey Camo till we see Rarity on her routine trips in the mountains. Keep your distance and if we’re lucky we’re not spotted, if we are spotted we make a getaway and hope she thinks we’re diamond dogs because what other grey bipedal animal is gonna be there?

We gear up. All black tactical gear. Travel light, no heavy Kevlar shit or helmets, no Assault rifles and nothing heavier than a silenced pistol and night vision gear. Leave the rest of the tacticool operator bullshit at home

We wait till night and then we hit. Ponies are all in bed by 8pm like good citizens but only one is awake that late, Twilight Sparkle. So we post a two man sniper team to keep surveillance and warn us if she decides to go out for a walk. The two man team will be dac-attack on the Rifle and Verbose on the Binocs. She walks outside her building, fire a tracer round through a potted plant or something and grab her attention and then get to one of the exfiltration points. Make sure your bullet is angled so it hits the ground, don’t want the round penetrating walls and hurting a poor pony. Why these two? cause Dac is going on about how he’s so fit and outdoorsy so he’ll need to run if Twilight gives chase (which I doubt) and Verbose? Well, I’m guessing he’s the most likely not to fall asleep watching Twilight Sparkle at night (sick freak). A side note, if for some reason one of the Alicorns are there. Mission is abort. Verbose moves to exfil point and Dac signals three flashlight flashes in a predetermined location then exfils

The main four man team will consist of myself, badsitrep (AFROTC training isn’t ideal for this op but I’ll take hat I can get), Karnage (creepypasta and grimdark poster will have less moral qualms about breaking an entering) and CitationNeeded (Rainbow Dash fan will enjoy pranking Rarity). We do this simple, straight through the front door. A nail through the old style lock and we’re in. Slow and quiet, not a sound. badsitrep will stay in a hidden position with a tranq rifle and a clear LOS to the stairs, all of us will stay out of his LOS at all times, Citation keeps a visual on a predetermined sight to spot the Luna signal. Me and Karnage find the chest with the gems and signal with three quick flashes of your flashlight. No sound. Shouldn’t take more than 30 seconds. Get in, Get Out, Get Paid. Rarity wakes up and comes down, sitrep puts her back to sleep and mission is abort, grab any old gem and exfil out of there the same way we came.

The hope diamond is 200 million dollars worth. Any single gem from Rarity’s collection makes the hope diamond look like a cheap made in China glass imitation jewelry. A chest can hold let’s say 500 gems giving us around 100 billion dollars to split 6 ways. About 16 billion each. Rarity is mildly inconvenienced and we become richer than we ever dream

(Continued in part II)

But we’re bronies, we don’t do this for our own greed. Buying out all of Hasbro’s stock will take only about 4 or 5 billion dollars total. We buy equal shares of the company. We now own Hasbro. We use our fabulous wealth to pay for the design and creation of show accurate toys and FINALLY GET A WHITE CELESTIA! We will then hire Shigeru Miyamoto, Will Wright and Sid Meier to create a dream team of designers to create the Ultimate Pony videogame. We hire Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson and Lauren Faust to create the My Little Pony Feature Film with a budget of 300 million dollars. We will bankroll Vermin Supreme’s campaign to become president so all can have ponies. In fact, we will sponsor a presidental or prime minstrel candidate with a pony pledge in all major world powers creating peace on earth and receiving the Noble Peace Prize

And let’s say we fail (I mean…law enforcement must be pretty lax in Equestria since it’s so peaceful and all)….let’s say Celestia is really an omnipotent being and swoops down and kicks all our asses. So what? We’ll most likely get a slap on the wrist like “Friendship training for 2 years” by Twilight Sparkle or hard labor in Sweet Apple Acres where we are actually paid a decent wage by the Crown or help out the weather patrol with cloud generation or some other laughably mild sentence. You see what I mean? Even if we lose, we still win by hanging around with ponies!


Alright that’s the plan. Primary Exfil point is the Everfree forest. Secondary Point is Froggy Bottom Bog.

Questions? If not, lock and load gentlemen.

@burning_phoneix

You have my sword.

But there’s one situation you forgot about. Fluttershy.

Little Mare and her giant collection of fur, has the risk of one critter waking up in the night. She gets worried and we have the puppets dancing.

That’s where I come in. I have succesfully infiltrated her house and she trusts me like a lover. She even lets me handle her appointments and the cooking on occasion. Long story short, I can make up a legit story. If she gets to the point of wanting to check it out, remember that watch I once used. Click once to stop the clock, click three times within a second to fire a tranquilizer dart straight from the bottom. Stuff I put in those darts could get an Ursa Major in a coma.

As for the animals, let’s just say they can run off and get missing.

In order for me to compete in this plan I ask a 10% share. Leaves you guys with 90 billion, making 15 billion the man. I will use that money to get Hasbro to make a decent Angel toy. Not some plastic garbage that only comes with Fluttershy, but a decent size with actual fur.

We got a deal?

Well that depends on:
- how many bronies there are in the world.
- how much profit Pony division of Hasbro makes (i.e how much profit are they giving up by selling it)
Lets assume for a sec there are a million bronies in the world: $1 per person, million people =
$1,000,000 dollars raised. Nowhere near enough. At $10 per person its $10 million dollars.
-
According to 2009 data (before G4 ponies – but hasbro owned pony division since forever)
Hasbro stats:
Total assets: US$3.90 billion (FY 2009)
Net income: US$375 million (FY 2009)
Operating income: US$922 million (FY 2009)
-
Im guessing we would have to raise at least $922 million USD to buy pony division. That is one year worth of operating income. But considering Hasbro probably made a few easy million since G4 ponies they would not part with that cash-cow so easily. So it would probably be a few billion USD before they part with it. Each brony would have to contribute too much per person to buy the divison. Considering some bronies work and contribute say more than $1000 dollars and some who are still with parents and cant contribute much this would be very problematic.
-
The problems with the above theory:
- Assumes there are 1,000,000 bronies in the world (it probably more/less)
- Uses old data
- Spelling
- Grammar

Depends on the governing body. I think those that have a respect for Lauren Faust’s vision for Equestria, those that let the creators do as they saw fit, those that don’t interfere with the process, and those that let the show end when it approaches a natural end would make the most of the show.

I think a scenario with those attributes in place would allow FiM to reach its potential as a cartoon. If all of those attributes aren’t in place, I think there’d be a good chance that the show would be ruined or run into the ground.

Regardless of what we like, the show needs to be something between what it has been and what the creators would like for it to be (which is mostly what it has been.) I think if FiM has no pressure to be anything that it is not and I think that Hasbro is allowing for that,) it will be fine in either case.

Can’t speak for the merchandise though. There’d be more keychains, shirts, laptop covers, and things like that, but given that most of us aren’t business men, that may end up being a bad idea.

Well, I’d leave the show itself to Hasbro. I may know what to do with the merchandising. I’m pretty good with marketing and budgets. I’d probably find a way that we can have show-accurate and fan-pleasing toys and other pony-related products, all while staying in budget. If we could get some Bronies on the marketing table, then we have some control over it. We’d have to find a pretty damn good businessmen who likes ponies to do that, though.
@Spits I don’t know. We can’t exactly tell you what you deserve. It’s just not our place. If you feel like you don’t deserve it, then take a good long look at yourself. Think about your actions and words. Do you feel like you do?

Natsuru Springfield and Katie Starshine are both guys, if I hear right. I think you’re fine.

If you like the title, go with it. You don’t have to earn it or anything.

But yeah, I know what u mean, about the other users, other sections of the forum. I used to have Dash, Tom (rock) and I picked Robert Edwin House because its mostly neutral. Pony haters everywhere so yeah it may be a good idea to get neutral avatar and stuff if ur gonna post elsewhere.

Well guys, I just passed by the entry before getting here, and guess what?


@Ponies world thing

I’d say that if ponies really exist, then they would live in a planet (as confirmed by Pinkie Pie Chancellor Puddinghead on HWE) where equine beings have become the ruling race, and this planet, for itself, is located in a universe paralel or far from ours (what explains the lack of the laws of physics and things like magic and celestial bodies like the sun being manipulated by it). The human race did not find it’s way on the planets evolution, so no pony has ever seen or heard of it.

@Bronies owning pony division

You can call me nuts, but if that happened one day, the cartoon would totally be dead for me. It would lost all the fun, because one of the things that makes me get tuned to it is the ability the producers have to surprise us in each and every episode, no matter how obvious the plot maight be (who really saw Derpy coming on “Last Roundup”, or AJ’s letter to Celestia on last episode?). If bronies ruled the pony division, than every episode would be hinted towards us, and I believe things like bronies shoutouts or background ponies having their own episodes would be common. So no, it’d be the end of ponies for me.


@opse
Expert on getting high hun? Well, lemme show what I take everyday. I assure you you’re never gonna get a high like this in your life after proving this

And guess what? There’s nothing you can do to make me stop!!

I agree with the Doc. Bronies owning the division as a whole, may be costly. A lot of us might not be bronies anymore. But, the merchandising thing is still a possibility. I suggest a “Collector’s Series”, a toy line aimed directly at people who want a better quality of pony toy than curently offered. It consists of show-accurate, top of the line ponies and various characters, all to scale with each other.
