  1. Welcome, Everypony, to our 5th Equestrian Cider Contest! Our next "challenge" will be a simple one: Role-Playing! Simply role-play the pony you are supporting, as if you are that pony. Say what you think she would be saying, as if she were participating in the contest. And that's it! No strict rules for this challenge, like rhyming or syllables. This is all just for fun! Our contestants for this contest are as follows: 1. Applejack 2. Rainbow Dash 3. Pinkie Pie 4. Twilight Sparkle 5. Fluttershy 6. Rarity 7. Lyra 8. Starlight Glimmer 9. Trixie 10. Princess Luna Here are the basic rules of the game: 1. All ten contestants start with zero points (i.e. no ciders drunk). 2. Make a post in support of the contestant you want to win. 3. For each post made in support of a contestant, one point will be added to that contestant (i.e. she will drink one cider). To make the game easier to keep track, I recommend counting to 200 for your pony. For example, if your post is the 12th to support Twilight Sparkle, then say something like, "Twilight Sparkle: 12" 4. Rules for posting are as follows: a. You may only give a point to one of the ten ponies, listed above. No other ponies may compete in this competition. b. No consecutive posts by the same poster are allowed. (if the thread gets too inactive, I may make an exception at my discretion.) c. Back-and-forth posting by only two posters may count for up to 20 consecutive posts for one contestant. Beyond that, no points will be given. d. See above for the role-play requirement! 5. The first contestant to get 200 points (i.e. drink two hundred ciders) wins! Inside is a glance of the History of the Cider Cup: Are you ready, Everypony?! Three ... two ... one ... Chug!
  2. Welcome, Everypony, to our 4th Equestrian Cider Contest! Our Cider Contest History: Our next challenge is the Haiku challenge! This time, the score limit is only 50, but everyone has to make a Haiku for each post. A Haiku is a three line poem with 17 syllables: 5 on the first line, 7 on the second line, and 5 on the third line. Here are some examples: For more examples of Haiku, see here: If you are unsure how many syllables a word or phrase has, please use this: A few rules for our challenge: It must be related to MLP. You may not use the same Haiku twice or copy a Haiku from someone else. Our contestants for this contest are as follows: 1. Applejack 2. Rainbow Dash 3. Pinkie Pie 4. Twilight Sparkle 5. Fluttershy 6. Rarity 7. Lyra 8. Starlight Glimmer 9. Trixie 10. Princess Luna Here are the basic rules of the game: 1. All ten contestants start with zero points (i.e. no ciders drunk). 2.

To make the game easier to keep track, I recommend counting to 50 for your pony. For example, if your post is the 12th to support Twilight Sparkle, then say something like, "Twilight Sparkle: 12" 4. Rules for posting are as follows: a. You may only give a point to one of the ten ponies, listed above. No other ponies may compete in this competition. b. You may post consecutively, as long as your replies don't merge. The time window of merging is 10 minutes, so you may only post once every 10 minutes if no one else posts. c. See above for the Haiku challenge. If you ignore the challenge, your post will not count. 5. The first contestant to get 50 points (i.e. drink fifty ciders) wins! Get Ready ... Set ... Chug!
  3. Because if it does, Pinkie wouldn't have ended up very well.
  4. Between the episode "Where The Apple Lies" (S06E23) and "The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000" (S02E15), we've seen a picture of the Apple family's system of making and selling apple cider. I think that system is incoherent, unable to even come close to meeting the demand for Apple family cider, and serves no one well - not the Apple family themselves, not the relatively few customers who are able to buy their cider, and not the many more potential customers who want to, but are unable to, buy their cider. Yet, despite this failure of the Apple family's cider system, they seem to refuse to consider changing it, and so everyone has to put up with it, day after day and year after year. So I'll try to make a case for why the Apple family's current cider system is so bad, and why it can, and ought to be, improved. First, let's recount what we've seen about how the Apple family makes and sells cider. During cider season every year, the Apple family makes a batch of cider every day, on the order of 25 barrels. And each day in cider season, ponies can buy mugs of cider (apparently with no limit, considering how many Pinkie buys) on a first-come first-served basis at a stand on Sweet Apple Acres that the Apple family runs themselves. When the batch of cider for the day runs out, that's it - anyone who wasn't able to buy any just has to wait for the next day to take another chance at doing so. The line for the cider stand looks as though it consists of at least tens, if not hundreds, of ponies, with some ponies literally camping out overnight (if not longer) to ensure their early spots in line. All these ponies might wait in line for hours every day, and many, if not most, of them end up getting nothing for all the time spent doing so. This is the situation which Flim and Flam see when they bring their Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000 to Ponyville and get most of the town understandably excited at the prospect of being able to produce cider on a much larger scale than the Apples are currently doing. So why does this system continue to be used? In "Where The Apple Lies", Big Mac tells Filthy Rich that, apparently, every time Stinkin' Rich asks Granny Smith about his selling Apple family cider, Granny Smith says that it's a "tradition" for "everypony in Ponyville" to line up out at Sweet Apple Acres to buy cider. But who actually likes this "tradition", and who is enforcing it? We know from "The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000" that "everypony in Ponyville" does NOT like forming a line tens or hundreds of ponies long and standing in it for hours every day during cider season for the chance to buy maybe a few mugs of cider. There are many ponies who would probably want to buy Apple family cider in higher quantities, and without standing in line for hours every day to try to get it, if only that option were available. Instead, the Apple family continues to anger most of their potential customers by enforcing the "first-come first-served waiting in line at the cider stand" method of selling cider, and thus not even allowing those potential customers to buy any cider at all, while also wasting who-knows-how-many hours of their time. The supposed reason why cider can only be sold at the stand on Sweet Apple Acres, and the Rich family cannot be allowed to sell it, according to Granny Smith in "Where The Apple Lies", is that "zap apple jam jars preserve the flavor for moons, but cider starts to spoil the second it comes out the press". So, what, apple cider doesn't taste quite as good if it's bottled and sold a few days (or even weeks) after it's made? Why is that a problem? Again, there seem to be plenty of ponies who would be perfectly willing to buy cider that was bottled previously, even knowing that it may not be at the absolute peak of flavor; again, currently many of them get no cider at all, and the ones that do can only get a few mugs after standing in line for a long time. Thinking about real life, I've heard that apple cider (or orange juice, etc.) that's pasteurized and sold in jugs at the grocery store (or at an orchard, for that matter) isn't quite as good as freshly squeezed. But even so, plenty of people are willing to buy that, because they want to buy large quantities, or drink it when it's not necessarily in season, or just don't want to have to go to an orchard every time they want to drink it. And there are still lots of orchards where tourists and locals who want to buy and drink freshly made cider can do so. It doesn't have to be only one or the other. Again, the Apple family is failing to serve (and angering) many of their potential customers by severely restricting the quantity and manner in which they can buy cider, even when there would be pretty obvious demand for cider that isn't 100% fresh and can only be bought in mugs at the cider stand. But the funny thing about this is that, at the beginning of "Where The Apple Lies", Apple Bloom mixes up crates containing apple cider and zap apple jam. So the Apple family is apparently making crates presumably containing jugs of cider. And at the end of that episode, we even see Granny Smith pull out a jug of cider to serve to the family gathered there. Why would the Apple family make crates of jugs of cider, if not to sell them? And wouldn't doing that be in direct contradiction to Granny Smith's supposed rationale (i.e., that the cider starts spoiling immediately after it's made) for only selling cider in mugs at the stand on Sweet Apple Acres? If the Apple family already makes crates of jugs of cider for some purpose, then what's the problem with allowing the Rich family to sell some of them? So we see from both "The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000" and "Where The Apple Lies" that there's much more demand for cider than the Apple family's current system is capable of meeting. Applejack even says that "cider sales keep our business afloat through the winter", so cider is apparently a significant moneymaker. Thus the Apple family should increase production and increase distribution! If cider is one of the Apple family's more profitable products, then they should use more of their apple crop to make cider (and, if necessary, plant more apple trees from which they can make cider). And if the Apple family themselves aren't capable of ramping up cider production, then they should hire ponies and teach them the "Apple family way" of producing cider to help make more. We see the rest of the Mane Six help the Apple family make cider, so other ponies are certainly capable of doing so. And we see the residents of Ponyville get excited at the prospect of Flim and Flam making and selling cider, so there are many ponies who are willing to buy cider that isn't necessarily made personally by the Apple family. Next, the Apple family should make that cider more widely available, rather than the "first-come first-served waiting in line at the cider stand" method. They could sell cider in jugs and maybe even in barrels, and allow ponies to pre-order larger quantities and pick them up when they're made, so that more ponies who want cider can get it, and don't have to wait in line for hours to try (and often fail) to buy only a few mugs at a time. This is where the Apple family could negotiate with Filthy Rich to allow him to sell jugs of cider at his store, for the convenience of his customers. These are just ideas that I came up with, and I don't think I'm a particularly creative or entrepreneurial person. I think if the Apple family did things like this to increase production and distribution of their cider, then everyone's lives could be made better. The Apple family could make more money by producing more of the cider that consumers desire, and by hiring help, they could choose to spend as much or as little time on making and selling the cider as they want, rather than taking it only upon themselves to make the cider and sell it at the stand (and deal with all the angry ponies who waited in line). If the Apple family successfully negotiated with Filthy Rich to sell cider, then he could make more money and probably increase customer traffic to his store. And hundreds of ponies who want to buy cider could do so, in the quantities that they want and without wasting countless hours in line to get it. So it's particularly galling to me that the Apple family could improve the lives of themselves and hundreds of potential customers by changing their system of making and selling cider, but they're apparently so blindly devoted to "tradition" that they refuse to make any significant changes to it. This might be one of the most frustrating things I've seen on the show, and is one of the main reasons (among many others) why I find "The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000" so exasperating and annoying to watch. What do you think? Do you agree that the Apple family's system of making and selling cider can and should be changed? Are there points for or against doing so that you think I missed? Thanks for reading!
  5. I have tried recently: Woodchuck Amber, Strongbow, Ciderboys, Angry Orchard, & Redds Apple Ale My absolute favorite being Woodchuck Amber I'd say Woodchuck Amber, Angry Orchard, Strongbow & Ciderboys are my favorites so far. Redds Apple Ale was okay not the best honestly but it is cheaper I believe. So yeah if you like hard cider what would be your favorites?
  6. G'day MLP forums. Did this in school today. "Thanks fer helpin' me finnish off this keg RD." "No problem AJ, next time you need me to get funk as druck with ya just let me know." -Edit- So, I decided I can't just leave this one alone. So I added more of a background. I might do a bit more to this tomorrow so I'll post another update if I do.
  7. This is a video I spent quite some time on, finishing around December of last year, using Valve's Source Filmmaker. It's predominantly used for videos using Team Fortress 2 characters, but lacking any other animation software (or, for instance, an "open field" world) I decided to use SFM. The bottle texture was made by me, based off the Demoman's whiskey bottle. I haven't worked on much since then, but I'm currently in the middle of work on another idea that turns out to be well over 3 minutes. Thanks to fox for showing me how to embed videos.
  8. I'm back to pictures again, but this time I learned to do some shading. Just note it's my first time doing some shading. How'd I do?
  9. When watching SSCS6000, I thought it was odd that Rainbow went out of her way to wake up Fluttershy, and bring her to the cider line. Then later I saw Putting Your Hoof Down, particularly how Fluttershy has trouble in line-ups and gets bullied out of her place constantly. Now think about how she'd do in the cider line without her friends. It may just be coincidence, but I found it very sweet that Rainbow would go out of her way and risk something as important to her as an early place in the line just to bring Fluttershy and make sure she gets some cider as well. Particularly so since at first it seems that Rainbow's bullying Fluttershy.
  10. I had to share this poem by Robert Frost. It sounded like a Sweet Apple Acres to me, even though that isn't the meaning of the poem. My long two-pointed ladder's sticking through a tree Toward heaven still. And there's a barrel that I didn't fill Beside it, and there may be two or three Apples I didn't pick upon some bough. But I am done with apple-picking now. Essence of winter sleep is on the night, The scent of apples; I am drowsing off. I cannot shake the shimmer from my sight I got from looking through a pane of glass I skimmed this morning from the water-trough, And held against the world of hoary grass. It melted, and I let it fall and break. But I was well Upon my way to sleep before it fell, And I could tell What form my dreaming was about to take. Magnified apples appear and reappear, Stem end and blossom end, And every fleck of russet showing clear. My instep arch not only keeps the ache, It keeps the pressure of a ladder-round. And I keep hearing from the cellar-bin That rumbling sound Of load on load of apples coming in. For I have had too much Of apple-picking; I am overtired Of the great harvest I myself desired. There were ten thousand thousand fruit to touch, Cherish in hand, lift down, and not let fall, For all That struck the earth, No matter if not bruised, or spiked with stubble, Went surely to the cider-apple heap As of no worth. One can see what will trouble This sleep of mine, whatever sleep it is. Were he not gone, The woodchuck could say whether it's like his Long sleep, as I describe its coming on, Or just some human sleep. ~Robert Frost

    Discuss. I don't know about you but I'm not in the habit of browsing forums while heavily under the effects of alcohol. Then again, I'm not in the habit of anything while heavily under the effects of alcohol. Because I've never been heavily under the effects of alcohol. However I do enjoy a good browse of the Cute Pony pictures while sipping a glass of wine. But I think it's true that some people here do have their own habits, and I'm curious about their opinions on it. Whether or not it's right or safe (considering that some users here are underage) or if it can increase the enjoyment of the forums (since while intoxicated, impaired judgement can make even the slightest thing hilarious, or so I heard.) etc. Or you can just post your opinions of drunkenness/intoxication. However remember that listing experiences or stories must be done with cautious editing judgement; remind of said underage users. Votre santé
