  1. What graphic editing programs do you use? (if you ever edit graphics) If I need a simple rectangular crop or resize I open the image in Preview (default image and PDF viewing app in OS X). If I need something better than Preview I use Pixelmator (mostly for its healing tool, which CS4 doesn't have), and if I need the most power possible (such as if it requires layer styles) I use Photoshop. And finally, if I need to animate a gif I use GIMP and an SVG Inkscape.
  2. What add-ons do you use on your main browser? I use Easy Youtube Video Downloader, Flashblock, Pixelzoomer (so much better than Colorzilla), Restartless Restart, Speed Dial (the default new tab page on Firefox sucks), Stylish (to remove the stupid youtube bar that takes up too much vertical space), and Web Developer (it has a better CSS editor than Firefox, and has an HTML editor).
  3. This forum has a funny pictures topic. This forum has a cute/sad pictures topic. But there is something much more necessary... an thread just for AWESOME MLP pictures! I have several more, but there's too many images in the post Now post any awesome pics you have!

    About the season finale...

    No no no no no. I'll say it once and I'll say it a million times, I'm perfectly fine with Twilight becoming an alicorn if the rest of the Mane 6 become alicorns too, since they're all the wielders of the EOH. It would also fit the in-show universe as well (and my headcannon) that alicorns are made by using the EOH, and then Cadance is an alicorn from being the descendant of one of Celestia or Luna's children from hundreds/thousands of years ago, and as a non-EOH-made alicorn is not super-powerful or immortal. Then there's the fact that this is not a 2-part episode, so it'll probably be Suddenly Wings! instead of having an epic scene of turning into an alicorn to defeat new Super Bad. Yeah, I mostly want it this way to fulfill my headcannon, but it is an awesome headcannon.
  5. Sure, a single post user "MarketingThrowaway" is a member of the MLP team. This seems totally legit. My opinions on the info he "leaked": I never cared for derpy. If a "character" never does anything except be a background gag, I'm perfectly okay with the removal of said background gag. On Alicorn Twilight: silly Hasbro. You should know better that all the Mane 6 should become alicorns!

    S03:E07 - Wonderbolts Academy

    Of course I'd watch this. It's not like I have to study for finals or anything. Spoilers:

    Mega Thread Everypony's Religion And Why?

    There is a big problem with this way of thinking however. Replace a god with the universe being a simulation ran by superior beings (well, technically they would be called gods in this universe) and you have the same result. Right now any superior being is not falsifiable, and I have no reason to believe in something non-falsifiable.

    Mega Thread Everypony's Religion And Why?

    I've just become an atheist. I've probably been an agnostic for a while now, but I was self-denying because I was too scared of breaking my religious indoctrination. I'm not absolutely sure there is no god/s, but if there is she/he/it hasn't revealed itself to humans yet.

    Do you wear glasses?

    I am nearsighted, and my right eye is far worse than my left eye despite being my dominant eye. My glasses are dark brown and plastic, and I think I'll need to get new ones soon. I want to get LASIK surgery in about 10 years. BTW, does anyone get "light halos" around lightsources?
  10. We will get art like that to come if Twilight were to become an alicorn. Just saying. My want for alicorn art aside, my biggest problem with this is that it seems like it'll just be Twilight getting upgraded. The rest of the Mane 6 should become alicorns as well, after all that's most likely how Celestia and Luna got their OP powers (IMO the only possible explanation for them is that they became alicorns after EOH'ing Discord, and Cadance is a distant descendant of one of Celestia's children, however they don't have the magic & immortality that Celestia and Luna enjoy).
  11. http://news.yahoo.com/mars-mystery-curiosity-rover-made-big-discovery-183538041.html NASA apparently found a groundbreaking discovery on Mars from Curiosity's chemistry lab, but they're waiting till December in case it turns out to be false (probably not to make a repeat of the FTL neutrinos incident). But since evidence of water has been found on Mars, what else could the chemistry lab find? Obligatory:
  12. SpaceX has plans for a martian colony by the 2030s I think. And compared to what NASA does (they seriously need new rocket designs) and what they've accomplished so far, I think they might pull it off.
  13. Alien life will not hurt us, how many bacteria and viruses can harm humans? They need to be specialized for humans to do so. Aliens cannot give us diseases, if they are even carbon-based water-needing DNA & RNA-using lifeforms with left-handed proteins then there's the huge DNA difference that will occur. If we can't get plant diseases, of which we share ~1/3 of our DNA or even mollusk diseases, which we share like ~70% of our DNA with, then there's NO way that an alien lifeform with 0% shared DNA (due to a different progenitor of life). It's even worse in the movies or Doctor Who, when humans can even have children with aliens (we can't even have children with chimps!). Although there is a negative side to finding life on Mars. It would probably mean no terraforming .

    [Rumor] Disney to be Ruler of Equestria?

    Or if they put it on Disney Channel it would probably become more suitable to the channel to prevent anyone from changing the channel. Or... they could put it on Disney Junior. *hides under my bed*

    [Rumor] Disney to be Ruler of Equestria?

    Safe for kids, with a laugh track and toilet "jokes" every other sentence because the writers lack writing abilities. I know Gravity Falls & Phineas & Ferb aren't like that (for the most part), but EVERY. SINGLE. OTHER. SHOW. IS.

    [Rumor] Disney to be Ruler of Equestria?

    Best case scenario: Disney buys Hasbro after Hasbro decides to cancel MLP, but before any public announcements. Then Disney decides to continue on with MLP, you know like they did with the Marvel shows (sarcasm). Relevant:

    Why is grimdark so popular?

    I prefer grimdark fiction because it's more mature to me, and oftentimes the author overanalyzes the show and make the FiM universe seem more realistic. Also, the grimdark fics I read aren't gorefests with no plot, like Cupcakes.

    Mega Thread Anime Discussion Thread

    Anyone one here watching Sword Art Online? If you've watched the last 2 episodes, what are your thoughts on the episodes 15 and 16? And does anyone have any anime recommendations that has high quality animation, like Angel Beats, Another, SAO, Gosick, or School Days? I'm thinking about watching Clannad next, but I want to know some other good ones with better animation.

    Pencil or Pen?

    I prefer pencils. Pens may be much sharper than pencils and not require sharpening, but nothing can beat the ability to erase what you wrote.

    Post your Desktop

    My macbook. Background is Angel from the anime Angel Beats!. My iPhone. Also, I just realized just how many pixels the retina iPhone has. Makes me want the rMBP.
  21. I know English and I'm learning Italian at college. I regret my decision for Italian, I would much prefer Japanese (and would bother not to forget it all right after I finish Italian II).

    Mega Thread Anime Discussion Thread

    Anime I've watched: Skakugan no Shana Angel Beats! Anime I've watched but don't particularly like Neon Genesis Evangelion and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, and I've also tried to start watching Rosario + Vampire, but I couldn't bear through the first episode. I'm also planning to watch Fullmetal Alchemist, Hetalia (should be easy, they're just 5 minutes), Code Geass, and Gundam Wing. I might start watching Karin and Highschool of the Dead, but I'm not too sure about that. Anyone got another anime I could watch? Preferably one that's on Netflix.

    Phone/Tablet OS Preferences?

    The iPhone 5 16GB starts at $200. The iPhone 4S used to start at $200 for 16GB before September 21st, but now it's 16GB-only for $100.

    Phone/Tablet OS Preferences?

    Should of gotten it after the 21st, you would of saved $100 (or gotten a 16GB iPhone 5 for the price). I have an iPhone 4 8GB. Got it because it just became free, if it didn't I would have another dumbphone.
