  1. I work from a laptop in my room, so... Yeah, I spend a lot of time in front of a screen. At least I don't have to deal with traffic.
  2. I'm going to be publishing a book soon. I'll let you guys know so you can go buy them in the thousands and lite yourselves a bonfire. Go big or go home.
  3. So... We're talking about which of the Mane 6 is the most attractive in terms of personality... right? Keep in mind that you better make it clear what your frame of reference is or isn't. People could walk in here and think you really do find cartoon horses attractive, which is weird to say the least. I'm thinking about it more in terms of whose company or presence I would enjoy the most out of the Mane 6. For me, that'd have to be Fluttershy. She gives off such a warm and comforting presence.
  4. If anything, the Gryphons themselves strike me more as referencing Turkey. I remember hearing about Zecora being a reference to Obeah witchcraft -- something you'll find in the Caribbean among (West) African descendants. Ponies seem to be a mixed bag of different European cultures. You'll find a bit of Ancient Greek, Roman and Nordic mythological references. As far as architecture goes, it's very much Western Europe. Changelings... I'm drawing a blank there. Yaks are pretty obviously a reference to Central Asian peoples. It's this area of the Asian continent where you get different territories (whether countries or regions) with names that end in -stan. I also get Mongolia vibes from the Yaks. As far as I know, Hippogriffs are a purely a thing from Ancient Greek mythology. As for dragons, they're the Western type of dragons that are mean in contrast to Eastern dragons who tend to be gentle and wise. "Western" here could include references from Slavic, Germanic, Greek and Roman mythologies.

  6. Your Wave Caresses Me by The Last Sighs of the Wind
  7. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long for a teaser. The first thing I'm curious about is the aesthetics and art direction of the movie -- and G5 for that matter. Letting us have an idea what the movie is going to look like isn't asking for too much, is it?
  8. Physics and chemistry. Not to rag on biology but it's a little outside of what I've been looking for. As for what I'm looking for, it's answers for the Energiewende. Replacing the burning of fossil fuels with mostly solar and wind power isn't as simple as just installing solar panels and erecting wind turbines. The sun doesn't always shine and the wind doesn't always blow. Aside from daily variations, these two forms of renewable energy are also subject to seasonal variations. While solar and wind do complement one another, it isn't perfect. One idea is to take surplus solar and wind energy and make hydrogen gas (H₂) through the process of electrolysis. One advantage to H₂ is that it can be stored at large enough scales and using similar methods and technologies to what is already being done with Compressed Natural Gas and Liquefied Natural Gas. Green H₂ can be used for key industrial chemical processes such as the production of key chemical commodities -- most notably ammonia and methanol. There is ongoing research in using green H₂ for the processing of iron ores into metallic iron for steel making. Other than H₂, thermal energy storage also looks promising for large-scale energy storage whether we're looking at hot thermal energy storage or cold thermal energy storage. One edge that thermal energy storage has over batteries is that the square-cube law works in their favor rather than make things trickier like with batteries. Perhaps it could be said that this is more engineering than science but at the end of the day, engineering is science with purpose.
  9. Magma Waves - Fall of Columbia

     

  10. What do you mean "pretend to be someone else"? As in pretending to be another real person?
  11. 8/10 - I liked it. Something to lift my mood after not getting enough sleep.
  12. Would've been awesome if the show was this epic. Maybe G5 could pull it off.

  13. 0/0 - you forgot to post a song
