Wow, it’s been a really long time since I updated my wall.Overall I’d say I’m a pretty average netizen. I watch the occasional anime when I have time, my traditional favorites being Trigun, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Starblazers (Uchuu Senkan Yamato). Also, as you can tell by my avatar, I’m a fan of MLP (though I try my best to not be obnoxious about it), and western cartoons/animation in general.
As far as gaming goes, I see myself gravitate primarily towards the indie and retro circles, though of course I love the occasional triple AAA release. I like strategy games such as Dwarf Fortress and the Civilization series, most games that Valve makes, and really anything that looks fun. These days I mostly do my gaming through Steam, and if you want to friend me here’s my profile:
I’ve always been really interested in internet culture, I think it’s really fascinating to observe how things spread and mutate over time. That’s why I’ve loved KYM so much.
Within the MLP fandom, I enjoy all the fantastic fan content our artists create. I don’t watch as many videos or listen to as much music as I used to, but I still dabble in those. Primarily these days I’m into the art and fanfiction.
Speaking of fanfiction, my only real claim to fame in this fandom would be my story, I Wasn’t Prepared For This. It received a far better reaction than I ever could have hoped for. Still, things IRL have held me back from continuing it for a long time, though I hope to bring it out of hiatus very soon.
Rainbow Dash Spike is liking the B.
And don’t forget, all the upvote/downvote stuff is blue now, for some stupid fucking reason.
Employee: “Oh hey guys, that update we did to the comments really fucked up a lot of the functionality, and people are getting pretty upset over it. Do you think we should try to alleviate some of the issues?”
Google: “Nah, let’s focus on doing some aesthetic changes.”
This movie was goddamn amazing, I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve thought about it at all.
Now I want to watch this movie again.
And everything not invented by America, will be appropriated as an American product!
10/10 would read again.
A very intriguing hypothesis, anon.
However, I think the OP is making a logical fallacy here. He’s assuming that, because Equestria is nuclear capable, they must have weaponized it.
I have no doubt that Equestria could very well have access to nuclear technology (hell, their Princess is the physical manifestation of fusion, so she might have had innate knowledge on the subject of nuclear reactions). However, it’s obvious that their society is way way way way way more peaceful than our own. It seems highly unlikely to me that the ponies of Equestria would even consider the idea of using nuclear energy as a WMD.
And even so, necessity is the mother of invention. Before they could even have the chance of developing nuclear weapons, they’d need a reason to do so. It makes sense for them to develop nuclear power as an energy source (even though electricity seems to be scarcely used in Equestria), but it’s hard to believe that they’d ever find themselves in a position where they’d want weapons of such destructive power.
I love the thought experiment though, it’s always fun to imagine.
As of that Facebook post, apparently there are adult fans of MLP that still aren’t even aware that the fandom is a thing.
How does somebody even do that.
Yeah, I just don’t know anymore. It seems with every passing moment that I simply don’t feel like keeping up with this show and its fandom. I’ve got lots of other stuff to be doing, and frankly things just aren’t what they used to be. Even before S3’s last few episodes unleashed the never-ending shitstorm, I was waiting days to watch episodes simply because I felt zero interest in them.
Unless S4 somehow manages to absolutely blow me away, I see myself finishing up my fanfic and walking away from everything by the end of 2014.
It’s sad, I never expected this to be the way it’d all end.
pls no. DHX pls
I only read the opening paragraphs plus the good/bad/ugly thing.
I won’t read the synopsis, I’ll let the episode speak for itself, so I can pass judgment from a perspective as unbiased by previous information as possible.
That being said…
I want to break something. I don’t care what the context is, that’s fucking bullshit.
I want that chrome theme.
May I haz?
Bow to me, peasants, for I am your new Prince!
Ever since the Silk Road went down, I’ve been kicking myself for not buying into Bitcoin.
This weekend alone the value of a Bitcoin went up (briefly) past $900, right now it’s hovering around $700 again. If I’d bought some a couple months ago when it was only a hundred a coin…
I would like to point out to everyone here that the Winter Wrap Up episode aired in December 2010, and this video is from November.
Most people have forgotten that Winter Wrap Up was a leaked song.
Blessed is the Holy Trinity.
“This is going on reddit!”
Literally go kill yourself.
You bitch, you live in the world of Pokemon, where prosperity is the global state of being and people get to go on awesome continent-spanning adventures as a rite of passage into adulthood.
Those games you’ve been playing must be awesome if you honestly want to leave your world for theirs.
I know, right.
The image of a jaded Celestia threatening to “actually do it this time” strikes me as funny. As if it’s one of those things she does every once in a while and everybody just sorta doesn’t care.
People need to loosen up.
My 2K+ SAT score begs to differ.
Applejack confirmed for epic booty.
Why am I reminded of the Angels from NGE.
Me, Vinyl Scratch, and Psyco Pinkie form a band and go on tour across Equestria.
I think I win, guys.
