Enjoy your day.
Did Fluttershy "Heads of Equestria's Kings? (Kingdoms?)"
Confirmed Equestria for Holy Roman Empire? Equestria is semi-Feudal now!?
Jan 26, 2013Let me ignore the fact that there was even an episode that I watched today by deviating from the weekend's norm by posting some satirical graphs:Posted in: Culture, Media & Arts
Credits to Derpiburoo for the graphs of much amusement.
Jan 25, 2013I love hoe YouTube goes to the equivalent of the Renaissance on my YouTube account when I set it to shuffle now...Posted in: Culture, Media & Arts
Talk about a goddamned blast from the past.
2011 stuff 'ere.
Jan 24, 2013I'mma drop this:Posted in: Culture, Media & Arts
It seems to be a trend this season to redeem the villains of the past. Both Trixie and Discord both left on a high note with friendship in tow.
What do you think of this outcome? Do you want your Trixie's to be Great and Powerful and Discords chaotic? And if you do, which villian would you want to see join their ranks next?
And because it's relevant:

Still bright futures still exist outside of college. As long as the person has, passion, endurance, and creativity they will succeed.
You're forgetting luck. Lots of luck. And connections that existed beforehand. But mostly luck.
A little thing that rock-stars, internet celebrities, and actors don't tell you is that their success is all built on luck. Discovering/being discovered by the right people, being there at the right time, having the right material. Internet celebrities in particular stumble upon it, and then learn to milk the Hell out of what made them popular in the first place. The other qualifiers - though useful - are hardly variables in the internet scene. Or else the duo of ChipCheezum can afford to drop their professional carriers in pursuit of quality, well-informed Let's Playing. Extending the example base, Slowbeef can stop writing programs professionally and Diabetus can go back to being southern if Restupure was successful under these romantic conditions.
Likewise, MandoPony could be the next god-damned Bieber. He's passionate about his song-writing, creative (in that pop-rock sense), and has kept chugging for a long time now with a following in his respective area.
There's always a better person/group out there that's better than what's famous now based on your qualifiers for success. Yet they are not because the dice did not roll. Many artists, classical and current would not have formed without a bit of luck. Hell, Alice Cooper and his early band sucked big time. But then had the fortune of being graced by Frank Zappa as a short-term producer.
You can not ride successful on luck alone. And very often I'll find the internet world as being a way for people to manage college expenses on their free-time. But they're rarely ever lucky enough to use their entire earnings on life expenses. That award only goes to a few people, as it happens in real-life. LA is a town full of actors all working at McDonalds without much of a formal education of professional qualification otherwise. To expect yourself to ride big on luck is a folly.
If anything, college is a test of your qualifiers. If you can survive it, and still be passionate and will continue to prove yourself to be capable in your field you will be in that field. But not without official certification or a formal major under your belt.

So there could be a few administrative jokes about Germans inviting China to take over Germany. Since that is "home" to the Communist ideology.Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
In the sense that home is the birthplace.

Jan 21, 2013See that in my avatar? That's Robert M. La Follette senior with Applejack. But Applejack is irrelevant. What's really relevant, is La Follette.Posted in: General Off Topic
So please, if you like early 20th century American Socialist congressmen and Progressivist thinkers from Wisconsin and French names. Please give a hundred dollars to me via my DeviantArt, so that in the future I may use it to buy do-dabs and pleasantries to make my life extra special hsppy and fill the consumerist void in my heart.
So please, think of the red flag. And of America.
And if you want, Equestrian Apple Farmers United.

Jul 20, 2011The problem is you're focusing on the things in life that don't really matter. When I was a kid I had hopes and dreams. We all did. But over time, the daily grind gets in the way and you miss the things that really matter, even though they are right in front of you, staring you in the face. I think the next time you should ask yourself "Am I on the right track here?". I don't mean to be rude but people like you I really pity. So maybe you could use the few brain cells you have and take advantage of the knowledge I have given you now. Good luck.Posted in: General Off Topic
Jul 19, 2011No. There are several reasons for this, which The_Questioner touched on, but couldn't be bothered to describe in detail (and honestly I can see why).Posted in: General Off Topic
First, before we can ask "can zombies ever happen" we need to first correct the statement. Zombies aren't an event, they are a thing. So the real question would be, "can a a person for any reason become a zombie" which of course on a large scale would cause a "zombie apocalypse".
There are two "theories" about how zombies can become a reality:
1. reanimated dead bodies. This has loads of issues.
The way the body works is complicated. Bodies coming out of their graves has loads of issues, for one thing, they have no blood (blood is drained from the body by a mortician) and all of their living cells have died; the brain dies entirely after only 10 or so minutes without oxygen, so naturally without blood for years, there is absolutely nothing there that can be "reanimated". The way zombies are depicted, they have motor skills, the ability to see and comprehend visual stimuli, and they are able to reason somewhat- in that they know that the hunger they feel (which in and of itself means their sensory apparatus and nerve system have somehow come back to life) requires brains of living humans, and they also know how to get them. This implies that the Visual Cortex is still functional (which it won't be) and that their eyes (which usually decompose within a year or so) are still usable; even though the body has been drained of blood and therefore there is no oxygen supply to any of the bodies cells to perform the requisite cell respiration, which of course nobody is considering here, because they prefer (with the exception of The_Questioner) to instead illustrate their own ignorances. Also, once you are dead, you're dead. You don't "come back to life". That's utterly retarded. The only way you would come back to life is if you were never dead in the first place (which of course occurs when people think you are dead but you really aren't)
2. a "disease" that makes people act like zombies
This is more plausible, but only in that it isn't entirely falsifiable. However, there are a few problems.
A disease that causes people to want to eat other peoples brains will also need to have the effects of Dementia, in that it destroys parts of the conscious mind. But how would such a disease come to be? And more precisely, it would have to be pretty damn complex to be able to re-engineer peoples brains to want to eat other peoples brains. And it doesn't explain why, in the movies, they seem to also suffer from an advanced case of leprosy. First, bacteria is completely out- bacteria infects, it doesn't reprogram. Viruses work by reprogramming the DNA in a cluster of Cells so that those cells create more viruses. However, what creating a zombie pitulates is that a virus can reprogram not only cells, but it can also reprogram neurons to fire through different sets of axons in order to change the behaviour of the host, and even to disable any form of conscious, or reasonable thought. This is absurd- It changes the virus from a simple, non-sentient being to a sentient being capable of reprogramming something that even we, after years of study, cannot understand fully. I say it would have to be sentient because there will no doubt be any number of complications resulting from having to deal with brains, because they will not all have grown the same way. Much as a solitary mud wasp, upon capturing a grasshopper to lay it's eggs end, will pull it by it's antennae, but if a researcher tears off the antennae and mouth palpi, the wasp goes off and finds another grasshoper, despite being able to pull the grasshopper via it's front legs; the wasp, in this case, is pretty much following a computer program. A computer program cannot know ahead of time what different conditions will result, and the wasps brain is configured for only a small set of eventualities when it captures the grasshopper. And a wasps brain is many millions of times the size of a virus, which is a single cell and therefore can have no organized thought, and therefore can never acheive sentience. Arguing that a virus could reprogram a human brain is like arguing that a barstool could learn to play guitar. It's utterly absurd and defies any reasonable discussion.

I, as a teenager, feel insulted by this study. Therefore, they (the people who published this article, and those who did the study) did not take my feelings into account first. Since they are most certainly adults, this shows they did not display the empathetic properties that the study says they should. Based upon this, the article is flawed.
I'm also a teenager, and I'm not insulted by this because they are not saying that teens are all selfish and rude, but it's that we take emotions, generosity, and situations differently because of a simple fact. We are growing and muturing into grown men or women. Our brain doesn't fully develop until about 24, so teens and adults think differently, many times these different thinking minds result into aurguments. I believe this topic is stating that it is not difficult for teens to access the part of the brain that contains empathy. The best us teens can do is to try our best to use empathy when it is the right time, and grow into adults that still use empathy and are kind.
