Do you have the wingest boner right now?

Lol, thats weird, where did it come from?

From me being couger’d.

Couger’d ( koo-gurd):
(1) verb, direct. The spontaneous act or situation of being assaulted by a feral cougar (Puma Concolor)

Dude, Mike just died
How’d he get iced bro?
He got cougar’d

(2)v, d. Being hit on or being unintentionally attracted to a woman significantly older than you, often referred to as a cougar.

I totally just got cougar’d by Jim’s mom.

Wat is couger’d?

It’s a GameFAQs RDR meme. Cougars tend to show up out of nowhere and attack the player, so getting cougar’d is like getting attacked randomly, while finishing up a sent- Cougar’d
See?

This is one day’s worth of things:

Dear Princess Celestia,
This is what all us bronies have done in the past 24 hours:
1) Discussed our favorite ponies.
2) Discussed our ages.
3) > Implied different implications.
4) Discussed 4chan haters.
5) Lots of Pinkie Pie.
6) Figured out WTF scootabuse was.
7) Discussed how season 2’s cancellation would effect us.
8) Speculated on the nature of Discord.
9) Beheld how cute fillies are.
10) Had a fucked up image war.
Your faithful student,
Connor the Brony

In other news, what do you guys think about the KYM brony community, and where it fits in with the rest of the fandom? Do you think that we have a big effect, or are we mostly a subdivision in and of ourselves?

That’d be interesting to research. But not by me. Not tonight, anyway. In numbers, the most popular polls of the (I assume) the most popular Brony website (EqD) have over 10,000 (what?) respondents. So that means either a lot of people are using multiple computers to vote in the polls (possible, but probably not too prevalent) or there are at least 10,000 people Brony enough to vote on EqD.
 
That said, we’d have to see how many of the KYM users post positively on pony-related pages or the thread. That would give us a proportion in number, but not necessarily in influence. My thinking is that we are not that influential in the the Brony community, because we don’t produce much content (as KYM members. Any contribution probably occurs in fanfics or on Deviantart.) We simply document the trend (and talk about it.) Even though I think a lot of us have great insight on the show and its community.

But it gives me a project to do over the weekend, if I remember to take to it.
I understand that you may not have wanted that in-depth of an answer. And that’s ok.

I think so. I think it’s defined as pony-related craziness or some such.
As for figuring out the sites…

  • EqD = Applejack (so much work goes into compiling all of the news/stories/art…and it’s a fairly reliable pony news site.)
  • deviantArt = Rarity (the most artistic, in my opinion)
  • ponychan = Pinkie (I’d have to imagine the party never stops there at all)
  • YouTube = Rainbow Dash (Because it’s filled with awesome PMVs and episodes…which are awesome.)
  • My Little Brony = Fluttershy (because I can’t fit her anywhere else.)

A meme is defined as “an idea, behaviour or style that spreads from person to person within a culture.” We document MLP FIM as it relates to the internet and IRL.

hey guys let’s have a useless nit-picking discussion about the show:

what do you think is the tech level of the ponies of equestria? on one hand you can see they have basic house-hold appliances like ovens, taps of water, lamps and stuff like that so it’s definetly not middle ages…
on the other hand they have no machinary at all. hell, ponies need to pull other ponies around… >_>
sooooo… what exactly is their tech level? electricity but no machinary?

well i guess you can say that some of the electricity stuff are powered by magic but you can’t explain everything this way…

Sep 07, 2011 at 12:54PM EDT

@Jolly Jew

Well, I’d guess that their tech level of appliances and household items is pretty close to the stuff you would have on the 70’s and 80’s. But their transportation techniques seem to be much, much older. They just don’t need the same transportation techniques, since they can do pretty much everything without relying too much on machines. Besides, it wouldn’t be funny to see a pony piloting anything. Unless it’s Pinkie and her flying copter. Or Gummy riding an F-14 Tomcat…

All in all, I’d say that their fine electronics are very primitive, and I doubt we’ll ever see even a portable phone. That computer Twilight used to analyze Pinkie, might be the fanciest electronic thing they’ll ever have.

But a better assumption would be, that they just use whatever they need in the particular episode. And if it’s too modern, they’ll make it into a sort of steampunkish contraption.

I still never got why the needed a train engine when they use ponies to pull those, unless of course they need the whistle to warn other trains, and do those ponies take breaks since they travel all night and such?

I would pin them at early industrial, with some leeway given to how magic would accelerate the development of some technologies but decelerate others. So, for example, electricity has not really been picked up on as it hasn’t been needed. Transportation, however, seems quite a bit easier than you would expect for their tech level, as Pegasus ponies have made basic air travel possible.

Scootaloo drives a motorized scooter. Pretty much if it’s in the script then you will see it. If in the next episode it’s important to see a car because it’s part of the story, well guess what? You will see one.
