  1. As a devout Mormon, I resemble that remark In all seriousness, this is just another example of people being sheep, blindly believing what they're told by an authority figure simply because it's an authority figure saying it, and not stopping to think about why they're saying what they're saying.
  2. We've got a new temp and a new perm coming in the office tomorrow. It'll be interesting to see how they react to me, what with my dry-erase panel currently having Pinkie's cutie mark on it and my having an Electric Sky on my desk's shelf. I'm considering wearing my Rarity polo tomorrow, too.
  3. I was watching Fall Weather Friends earlier and it hit me. The defining videogame of the 4th generation of My Little Pony will be "MLP FiM: The Fifth Annual Iron Pony Competition"
  4. My player itself is set to 100%. All the time. With that being said, I have a pair of headphones with a volume dial on them, and that dial is how I mitigate damage to my ears.
  5. I'll start practicing; can you give me a brief overview of the KoRL's personality in this, maybe a couple of throwaway scenarios I can use to get into character with? Giving him the voice of Stanley the Plaid Tool amuses me.
  6. Honestly, as long as it's restricted to a subset of "Twilight can't solve X for us because she's out doing Y with Z", I'd be cool with it. And maybe one episode about the two of them getting together. But that'd be about it.
  7. If I became my favorite pony? I'd carry Sam's bags all the way to Moria, and threaten to go into Moria with him only to be set loose and sent back to Rivendell. Oh, you meant from FiM! Learn to fly, I guess.
  8. Lauren's busy with Wander Over Yonder, I don't think she'd have time to do anything meaningful with MLP at this point. The show being deliberately aimed at adults and airing on primetime? Not happening. MLP is still a toy franchise. Hasbro making show accurate toys? That would be awesome, but not something that they'd advertise. How would they even advertise it, anyway? "We're finally making toys that look like the characters from the show"?
  9. I've figured it out! Okay, not really, but still! The silliest thing I could think of was "Hasbro has decided to declare all the everything to be canonical", but having the fic that shall not be named simultaneously canonical with stuff like The Games We Play and Friends Have Benefits is kind of... well, actually completely impossible. But that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
  10. For me, it would be depending on the weather. During the non-winter months I'd probably prefer to go au naturale, though I'd probably work with Rarity in order to have formalwear and winter wear. Not beg, but work for.
  11. Again, the point that I'm trying to make is that if we don't want them to assume the actions of a small group are typical of the whole, we shouldn't do that to them either.
  12. Reality check. We're already jumping the gun about what may only be one or two soccer moms and extrapolating that behavior onto them all. I thought we were the victims of rabid overgeneralizations and stereotyping here, not them.
  13. If I were stuck in Equestria as Golden Plate? I'd spend my day learning the history of Ponyville and its inhabitants, of course.
  14. I'm not sure if I would have given it a fair chance when I was younger or not. On the one hand, I jumped shamelessly into stuff like Powerpuff Girls and Sailor Moon. On the other hand, I was born in 1990, which was the height of the "Boys must be boys" advertising blitz.
  15. Most of my coworkers know, my immediate family knows, and a couple of people from church know. I have a Rainbow Dash polo that I used to wear about once a week to work (it has since shrunk into being a little too small, so it's now reserved for homewear and weekendwear), and I've ordered a much larger Rarity polo to go along with it. I keep an Electric Sky at my desk at work for when I need that little bit of cheer during a painful call. I've found that in the professional world, people don't really care one way or another as long as you're good at what you do. EDIT: With my family, it helps that I have (or rather, had) policies about when and how to watch Ponies - it was always with Headphones when my brother or sister was around. I since had to abandon that policy when I realized that my laptop does not like headphones very much.
