For your entertainment: filter Google image results for .gifs only

Here we are, on this famous thing known as the "Internet". And while everyone enjoys hitting up the forums or IRC to do some quick text chat with friends, they say a picture is worth a thousand words - so what are animations worth?   Well, the guys over at Google posted something pretty cool today on Google Plus (brought to my attention via PopSci's Facebook page), so I figured I'd share the hilarity!   I present to you: Google results for animations. Go to images.google.com/ Type in what

Season 3: What changed?

If you're going to take the time to read this, I ask that you read it all of the way through. I realize that it's going to sound like a overly critical approach to the show, but I promise that I have good things to say in the middle of my criticisms.     ----------   I'm not sure if any of you are like me, but I have many great memories that were made on Saturday mornings. Whether it was Bugs Bunny so many years ago, or My Little Pony today, Saturday morning cartoons have always been someth

A case for Fluttershy (Most Attractive Pony Tournament)

Well, as this seems to be the popular subject of debate, I figured I might as well give a short, sweet, and to the point statement about Fluttershy. I'm not going to bog this down with images or other extras, I'm just going to give the information that I think is relevant.   "Attractiveness" is such a broad topic that most anything can be made to fit the category. Thus, I'm going to try and size this down: What is "attractiveness"? Is it aesthetics? Character? Mystique?   I think it's all of

After six years, I'm finally retiring my old laptop.

Well, with a little bit of helpful advice from Feld0, I finally convinced myself to go out and buy a new laptop.   It was discontinued before I could buy one, but I managed to find the last one on the web (to my knowledge) - a refurbished one on Ebay. (I saved $200 that way!)   This is my current one:   Granted, the new one doesn't have the insane 18.4 inch screen that my current one does, but 17.3 inches should be close enough. I feel a bit weird buying one while my current one still

1/1/13, and the view from my house.

*Edit: Changed the title as some people didn't seem to get the point...   I got home early (~12:30 this morning) from a good friend's house, and the fog had completely enveloped our part of the world - leaving particles of water to diffuse the moonlight hanging above us. The early morning hours did the same thing, but with the sunlight instead. We were covered in a silvery glow that I had always pictured Canterlot in.   Unfortunately, our best camera isn't too good when it comes to long expo

"To do list", meet "free time".

I get chided quite a bit by family members for spending so much time in front of LCD screens, but I find that to be a rather ludicrous notion.     Okay okay, so I tend to be on more than I think, but to me, that's not a bad thing: I'm always working on my "to do list".   What is my "to do list" though? When people (such as parents) ask: "Well what have you been doing all day?", I can't really answer them. None of the things that I do throughout the day are ever really relevant to the conv

From Joke to Joy: My Pink Celestia's Trip to a Home.

Foreword: I am a pony author who never gets around to publishing his stories, instead hording them on his computer for no real reason. This story, along with many others, has driven me to create this blog - quick, uncluttered stories that are far too short to make into a novel, but are fun experiences to relate nonetheless. I hope you enjoy.   This is a real life story that proved to me (in a very comical way), that random acts of kindness can extend far beyond what we intend. It brought a hug
