@Sparty and Fifths

One can debate that yes. Hitler was most likely though killed by his own foolishness and sense of warfare in fact. He refused to adopt potentially war-winning weapons that were developed in his programs (Me-262 (jet-powered fighter) ; MP-43 (revived towards the end of the war as the StG-44)) and that cost him the war. Bolt action Kar’s, the Gewher 43 and the MP-40 were not as effective as the M3 Grease Gun, the PPSh-41, the M1 Garand or the Browning Automatic Rifle used by the Allies. However, the MG-42 was a very deadly weapon of its era, feared by all. It didn’t win the war, however.

As for battlefield dickishness, another quote of Sun Tzu related to try to conquer the enemy before battle and not seek to destroy entirely.


Oh, freak yeah, first page.

I will be one of the few to NOT do a page get, and I hear bye declare that no one shall claim this page but moi!

ITT: War quotes and weapons are considered ponies.

At least try to combine your post with ponies.

“You know what you’re doing?”
“Of course I do. I’ve knocked out Adolf Hitler over 230 times.”

Anyway, I just found out that my eight year old nephew can’t watch FiM because his parents won’t let him. My sister thinks that I’m a creep for watching My Little Pony. It’s not like that’s the only thing I do with my nephew. We watch other TV shows, play video games, play with legos, and play Pokemon. Still, I wish there was some way to convince my sister that I’m not a creep and that there’s no problem with her son watching a harmless cartoon. Anyone got any ideas?

Tell her," seriously? I’m your fucking brother! How about you treat me with some respect. Watching a show doesn’t make me a creep." I can’t believe that. Mabye it’s because I’ve always had a close relationship with my siblings, but I’ve never encountered problems like that. Still, I’d say you should respect her wishes and not watch the show with him. If she doesn’t want him watching it, it’s kinda dumb, but it’s what she wants and he’s only missing out on show.

No, it wasn’t Hitler’s refusal to adopt weapons that cost him the war. It was his insistence on going to war with everyone at the same time.

World War II was a war of industry and manpower. A War that Germany could not hope to win.

PopperFett wrote:

“All warfare is based on deception”

Very true words. Win by deceit.

I prefer Carl von Clausewitz version that deception isn’t as important as Sun Tzu says it is, since most of the time, commanders have very foggy idea of what it happening on the battlefield.

EDIT: UM UMM NEED PONY RELATED STUFF!

“Which planet was that?”
“…Earth, sir.”
“Shit. We were aiming for Mandaloria.”
“I shiggy diggy.”

Incidentally, I made some more art. Now I need ideas, ideas for things I can make.

We seem to be going to war.

It’s a good thing I practice a lot.

Mecha, check.

Special operators and general infantry, check.

To war. Leave none left standing.

Hey guys, how’s it going? I’m great, just been chilling out with Dashie, playing chess, biking, discussing world domination, you know, the usual. Well, think I’m going to go check the mail and see if anything has come for me. Ok, let’s see what we got here: bill, chain mail, bill, bill, dragon dildos, bill…

A CHALLENGER APPROACHES

What is this? WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS?!?

Two Dashies?!? How is this possible?

I know, the plush master must have tried to deceive me by sending a CHANGELING Dashie in the real ones place before accidentally sending the real one as well! This is clearly the only logical explanation.

Clearly! Now the only question remains: Which one is the real Dashie and which one is the changeling? We’ll have to conduct a series of gruelling tests which only the really really real Rainbow Dash could possibly answer, but in the mean time…

I HAVE ALL THE DASHIES! I HAVE ALL OF THEM. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

(Thank you to DeadParrot for ordering a second plushie for me when it looked like the first seller wasn’t coming through and then she actually did.)

I’ll just watch the chaos as it happens. If anyone tries to attack me, then I’ll wipe you out in self-defense.

No, seriously.

There isn’t any discussion going on, but I wanted to mention this:

This pleases me. Now if only we could get one with Luna too.


By the way, I’ve been seeing this on Derpibooru very recently:

Are people still upset about this? Do you think people that draw her with red eyes are being stubborn, or do they have a right to? I’m interested in hearing some of your thoughts.

Unless, of course, you don’t want to…..

@Kairos
People just get really defensive when stuff they came up with turns out to be wrong canonically, even if the stuff they came up with was rock-stupid to begin with.
Because if you mess with someone’s headcanon, even the smallest amount, the butthurt will flow.

That pleases me so much. Fuck playing as Celestia, though, I just want the Wonderbolts as a unit. I really should start playing that game again.

@Zarathh

And so the war draws to a close. And the Pegasi and Australians won. Is anyone really surprised?

It is a bit pathetic that people would still be complaining.
People who draw her with red eyes still may be being stubborn, but they have the right to draw her however they want to.
I personally like her eyes being red, but everyone has their own preferences.

Why does no one know about artistic license?

As long as its sensible and makes sense, you can do it.

FFS I can draw Rarity with zero hair curls, round eyes, simple eyelashes and with shorn fetlocks and people will still say “Holy crap is that the best pony over there?”

Whether Vinyl has red or magenta eyes is irregardless. The fandom has come to recognize her as having BOTH red or magenta eyes.

You could even give her one red eye and one magenta and it would still make sense.

tl;dr multiple interpretations are a GOOD thing in art.

@War: Well, I never really lost, but I didn’t win either. Because I was a smart little pony and stayed away from all of the fighting, keeping my forces for self-defence.
Peace rocks, yo.

@Vinyl’s eyes: This was never really an issue. So maybe Vinyl’s eyes are purple instead of red. She does look a bit more badass with red eyes, but if her eyes turn out purple then so be it. They’re purple. Most of this rage is just people being butthurt.

omigosh is that Civilzation V? I for one love civ v, although it’s really boring in comparison to the older versions. So much waiting around, and the AI sucks really hard, even at deity (instead of making the AI better, they just penalize you harder). Haven’t touched it in a while, although I will purely to play as Celestia, and as a war-mongering bitch no less.

And yeah, artistic license.
