The fact that you know these kind of things is slightly disturbing. But interesting lol.

What possible use is that garment in the fluttershy pic on the last page (too lazy to quote)? Looks like some sort of shank for an old timey scuba helmet. :o

On the Nazi media, has anyone here seen Iron Sky yet? I got tickets to see it a week from tonight, and it's something I've been looking forward to since I first saw the trailers for it...what, two, three years ago or more?

Four years ago it was a dream and a fan made trailer. Now it's a internet sensation and apparently not that bad. But I'll wait for Brad and the Crew to review it over at the Cinema Snob before I go see it. Mostly because their reactions have pretty strongly mirrored mine. That's what a critic does best, act as a proxy or test case for going to see a movie before I go to see it.

I've usually enjoyed his stuff, but just get more out of reviews of stuff with closer to A-grade effort put in, and with only so much time available, he was one of the things I stopped fully following. Edit: I mean the movies being reviewed; I have no issue with Brad's level of effort or anything.

Oh, and on the topic of Nazis and space, even out of a lot of good material put out at XKCD, this has been one of my favorites.



@CalamityWhen: I'm expecting mine in the next few weeks; it sounded like the domestic ones were going out last.

Ugh, the AC went out at my work days ago. 9 hours at a time of air made only hotter by a packed floor of people and computers with windows that don't open.

Edit: I mean, uh...
Three days, so far, with no AC
My work's as bad as it could be
We pack the floor, it's hardly fair
We've windows, but no way to air
You'd think if safety's their concern
They'd try and help before we burn -_-

Eh, I got no right to complain seeing that. All I got was to be packed in a room full of students, and the AC being stupid and turning on the heat. Windows were sealed and only one door out of the classroom in the basement. Had two classes in that room. Eh, nothing much.

From what I've heard: A man who lives alone without friends discovers and raises Rainbow Dash as if she was his daughter, a act which amounts to his only joy in life. She even calls him "daddy." I haven't read the story but it sounds like a cry for help from someone too lonely to function.

Fans of it are literally moved to tears. The concept and reaction makes me feel really uncomfortable.
I liked it because it was written skillfully enough to make me react in a strongly emotional way. (I yelled "no" at the screen. Involuntarily.) I didn't find it sad, I just found it awful and unacceptable that Celestia would tear a family apart like that, and even make a show of erasing the main characters' memories of being a family.

I did. And the new official map makes it look around US-sized, what with the snowy north and a desert south.

I really want this too! Random Makes such an interesting back-story for Red Eye which is, in my opinion, Very true to his Character.

Unfortunately he doesn't seem to think he's quite good enough...

Which is wrong.

Lucky! I'm still waiting for mine, but I'm less worried now that I know there are others in the same situation. So they are as high quality as we were told? It's going to be nice when/if they get PH printed. (Were planning on it the last I heard, but let's wait until it's finished.)

The story itself doesn't quite work for me (my inner editor doesn't stay quiet long enough for me to enjoy it or to sympathize with the characters), but I have found that it is a good framework for your own imagination. "Rainbow" in what I've made has much more personality, and a lot of the WTF decisions actually have some emotion-based "tweaks". Still doesn't make for an amazing story, but gives you more stake in the events.

I'm similar. I'd actually love to be a pegasus (never got over the youthful wish for biological wings), but I feel that I would better fit the earth pony mentality/physiology. Don't know anything else about my ponysona, but he is an earth pony who loves the sky.

I did. And the new official map makes it look around US-sized, what with the snowy north and a desert south.
With the number of US-related puns for background cities, that's the feeling I got as well, if a bit smaller. And the map does seem support that height—probably southern Canada to around Oklahoma-latitude, with other territories continuing beyond. Even if it is more compressed east-west than it is north-south, though, it's likely only a fraction of the width.
nebulous wrote:RandomBlank, you have an amazing story for Red Eye. Do you think you could write it into a fic some time?
I'd like to see that as well. If it makes it any easier, Red Eye's seems like it could be a good story to be told through a journal, which might be a bit more familiar of a format for you.

Hmm... that doesn't seem to add anything to continue the discussions. Sorry!

Try taking a pack of fire geckos in FO2 with a 9mm pistol. I dare you. In NV it's rather easy. In FO2 you'll never, ever be safe from them, not even with the best armor and weapons; a crit can and will OHKO you.

And not all OCs are ponysonas, not nearly; I have numerous pony OCs, none of which are supposed to be like me.

@military connections

My grandpa was a demolitions expert in the Army during the Korean War, his father was in WW2, and I will be joining the Army myself when I get in shape.

@ponysonas

I tend to base all of my OCs on realy people, few exceptions.
