  1. Note: So... I AM A SCIENSTIST..... No really. I got a university degree in "General Science" Then a Masters in Geography. Then a PhD in Geology. So I'm literally a student of science in general with a focus in Earth Science. And like most people with a heavy focus in a academic area, I have some times get a little OCD when it comes to watching something and trying to apply "My rules" to it. --------- So this came up when I was watching a few episodes of MLP:FIM. I had a Epiphany.... The sun in My little pony CANT behave like our own star Sol.... So let's asses a few things. -------- #1: Yes, It is totally possible that none of the following numbered points are true, it is possible that this is a VERY Abstract world. But then the world would not really operate in other ways that we see it does. #2: The natural laws of Eqestria are at least formally similar if not close to our own. That is to say... Gravity is caused by mass, motion causes inertia so on and so on. #3: It IS possible that the sun is much smaller then our sun and that Eqestria is much closer. But the sun does shed light that grows plants. And it does give of heat. So it is most likely a star. It also would need to be very close if its not stationary for the scaling to work, close enough that it would most likely wonk up the planet/moon/sun orbital model. --------- So because of this I came to the conclusion that the following is the best explanation for the way that Cosmology works in FIM. #1: The sun is in fact stationary in FIM. #2: Eqestria itself is naturally tidal locked. (With one side facing the sun and another way all the time) #3: The moon is more or less a normal moon. - With all this in place that would mean that Luna does in point move the moon. And that Celestia actually uses her power to rotate the planet, not move the sun. This is actually pretty accurate with what we know in the show also. Because she is never stated to move the sun, she's stated to 'raise the sun' and sun rise in our own world is simply earth rotating.... -At one point Unicorns in general raised the sun with there magic. So Celestia moves the planet so that more then just a thin strip of the surface area is habitable. - Now the biggest issue with this is that if you just rotate the planet all of the sudden it would throw everything in one direction, but we do see if the show a few times that the sun does not just go up and stay there until its moved back down. Lesson Zero (Not the best example) does show that the sun moves in a arc over the surface of the world. We also see sun dials from time to time, something that would not work if the sun did not move in a arc. ------- So next point to be made. -The rotation of the planet done by Celestia is pretty gentle. Its actually more possible that she simple uses her magic a little bit every day to KEEP the planet rotating at a constant or close to constant rate. And that without doing so it would eventually become tidal locked again. - A quick side note. - Looking at the art map of the show... I really have to wonder how BIG the land known as Eqestria is. Not mind you the planet. (Which is unnamed) I know a good number of fans want to call it Equis. But I don't like that.. It's basically pooping on all non-equine creatures in the show. The map is clearly not to scale. -If it is mind you, Ponyville is larger then Canterlot, is the same size as the entire every free forest. And it should take as long to get to appaloosa is walking across ponyville three times. So all that in mind, we can figure out roughly now far apart some things are in the show based on how long it takes to get to / from some places by train. The train is clearly a steam engine, so 45-65mph is about as fast as it will be doing. I would say on the lower end. It takes less then a day (Maybe a hour or so) To get to ghastly gouge. It takes a overnight trip to get to appalousa. You can take a to Mainhattan and back again in one day... This all seams kind of... Inconsistent.. And it clearly is. But you know what else takes about the same amount of time to get around? The UK or France.... If I had to guess Eqestria is about the size and dimensions of France... It would also be totally possible to have the different areas that are on the map in a area that size accounting for elevation.
  2. So if you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? I feel that most people I come across in life all have a desired place to be. Some are actually perfectly happy where they are and others feel like they'd belong better else where. Have you ever felt like you were born into the wrong country? How do you view some other countries of which you perceive to be your perfection on Earth? The United States of America People often get very surprised as to just how nice Americans really are. A huge part of America is starting to become non-cash based, as in you simply scan something with you card and it pays for it. Compared to most other countries, the American food appetite is huge, all food compared to other places is bigger. India Most people think of India and think about huge overpopulated slum dog millionaire like areas. But India has some magnificent bungalows with BMWs and Mercs parked in the crowded streets. India also has a surprisingly huge variety of vegetarian menu options, even at their mc donalds. Nigeria It may not be the most popular destination for travel but it attracts A LOT of businesses from all over. They get a lot of leisure travellers who come for its booming economic benefits and spicy food obsession. The traffic is worse than London and Los Angeles.

    Humans in Equestria!?

    Do you think we'll ever see a human in the Pony realm? Do the ponies recall travelling to become Equestria Girls? I haven't seen those so can't comment. Many other animals appear in their world so perhaps humans will crop up... Thoughts? :-D
  4. Hey everypony! Not many of you know me, but I used to be cR Spitfire. I left the fandom a while ago, but now I'm back! And I'm also back to making photoshop art. So right now I'm working on a project of making a map of the entire world... in pony puns. Countries and cities that are mentioned in the show (like Saddle Arabia, or Vanhoover) are added, while most of the world is made up of puns I've come up with. This project is roughly 20% complete, and I have yet to fill the world up with city puns. If you guys like it, make sure to leave a brohoof! Also, feel free to add me, as I don't have many friends on here. (P.S, Russia is obviously made into a parody of the Soviet Union, and a lot of the Balkan countries in Europe have been merged together (because they're so small it's practically impossible to put text in them.)
  5. I was recently looking at a map and trying to work out how many countries I've been to. While I thought 16 was a lot, in the grand scheme of things it's really not. There are so many countries I still want to visit, which brings me onto the second part of my question: what countries would you like to visit? I've been to: Botswana Lesotho South Africa Swaziland Zambia Australia Fiji China Singapore France Germany Ireland Spain Switzerland UK United Arab Emirates But I'd still like to visit nearly twice as many as I already have with the main ones being: New Zealand Russia Japan Sweden Canada USA Jordan
  6. I've been following about on SpaceX's progress to a proper mission to start a planned trip and possible colony. They make a prediction as early as 2022! Incredible! I do surely hope that humanity will be able to begin proper space travel within our solar system within our lifetimes! And from the progress so far with their re-entry and landing boosters it looks promising. Though the cost at first flight is a bit... yeah. $10 mil is... well it is what it is. But I do understand as to why. The first of its type ever. Civillians heading to a one way colonization plan. And perhaps over the years as their success continues and the colony plans go well perhaps the cost will be reduced even to more affordable levels. What's your opinion on the topic? Like space travel? Excited for Mars? SPACE SHIP!??
  7. Some people still believe the earth is flat. I know it's total bullshit, but what is your opinion on the matter, and what do you think of people who still believe this?

    concerning numbers

    Well looking at the numbers of the Energy and Environment, it dose not look to good for good old earth http://www.worldometers.info/ well in the long run
  9. What if scenarios: Most nations are either neutral or have friendly relations with Equestria through the portal connecting our two universes together. However, one nation decide to invade Equestria to plunder it for resources and what not. They see the ponies as not being under the Geneva Conventions and therefore gives them the right to slaughter them without mercy or pity. Since they are not humans, that means they can kill them freely. How many would support the invasion of Equestria? Not only that but killing all the ponies and these humans wish to colonize Equestria. Would there be a massive outcry against this? Or would the vast majority of humanity support the xenocide of the entire pony race? Or would most other human nations armies mobilize to defend Equestria from them?
  10. I actually don't remember going there as much as Brazil, it was very long ago. My uncle was doing much more financially well than my Dad and he offered to help take us on a trip. I do remember the pigeons in the square of Venice and the gondola rides as my cousins and I looked out at the people walking by on the cobblestone streets. I remember the hollowed remains of the great Coliseum in Rome, the center stage exposed and crumbling sadly. Also sadly, I don't remember as much of this trip as I was very young. I do plan on going back one of these days though. In summation though, having now an Italian American as a mentor, I can say that I love Italy. As what was once the crowning jewel of Europe and still has places where it shines, its people are jovial and festive and willing to share what they know to a willing ear. I love them and their country.

    All my love to Brazil

    So this is another little project I've decided to undertake occasionally. I'll recount a country I've visited and why I love it. Starting off with Brazil. So my younger brother at the time, had his leg injured and spent the whole trip in a cast. Sad but I establish that now to give what happens later context. We started our journey in Manaus, a small hotel that even had a zoo inside of it. A small one, but it was great nevertheless to actually be close enough to give a monkey a leaf to eat without the zoo guards here barking at you. Not much happened in Manaus besides that but that's because we had to get to the boat that would take us down the Amazon River. The boat had smaller boats being towed behind it, and had great fish to serve. There was one day on the river where we fished for piranha. Blase, my aforementioned brother, actually got his rod caught in the tree and when he shook it, spider came raining down on all of us. We had a good laugh especially since if our Mom was there, she probably would have jumped into the water. We saw caiman's, sloths, a house boat, and even the elusive river dolphin. We made landfall in beautiful Rio de Janeiro and that's where things got really interesting. There were sand sculptures and two of them right next to each other. One was of a man and woman in the throes of passion and the other was of the last supper. My Mom asked our guide how something so austere and something so primal could co-exist like that. He said, "oh you know, we got problems but in the end," he pointed to Christ the Redeemer atop corcovado, "He sees everything." Speaking of which, we took a cable car up to the very foot of the statue and gazed at the city below. It was a beautiful sight. It was Easter when we went, so we obviously went to mass. It was there that, though we had basically carried a limp brother through most of the trip, but a kindly old woman prayed with us for Blase's health and kissed him on both the cast and forehead. There are more little highlights to the trip, actually vine swinging in the rainforest, wearing some carnival jaguar outfits, but the ultimate point I'm trying to make is that I love Brazil. I love its life, and its people. I would gladly call any who call such a place home, my friend.
  12. (I feel like there's already a thread on this, but I couldn't find one when I searched for it ) Sorry if there's already one. ;p ______________ So which pony race is your favourite? My personal favourite is the pegasi.
  13. Would ponies struggle to stand up in our universe? Consider that our universe may have different laws of physics. And the gravity on Earth could be stronger than it is on Equestria. Also the size and weight of their heads could be a real problem. If a pony somehow managed to stand up, I bet they would be on very shaky legs and may even need a human to support them. Unicorns could possibly help find a spell that allows them to walk on Earth as if they were on Equestria. But I think all the Earth ponies and Pegasi would need a nice human to push them around on a wheelchair. I could just imagine Rainbow Dash being angry over the fact she can't fly on Earth and needs to use a wheelchair to get around.

  15. Sorry, the title was meant to be "A rundown of all of the PONY races". (Kinda didn't realize that until after I'd posted the thread.) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ First up, sorry if I put this is in the incorrect section (thread mod, please move it if it needs it). Second, sorry if someone else already made a thread about this exact topic (and someone please send me a link if there is). Third, the reason for this thread. So, after about 2 years of watching the show, getting sucked into it and the comics, my muses finally got me to sit down and write a fanfic. However, not far into it I realized that I really didn't know the pony race's abilities that well. Sure, I know the basics, like everyone else. Earth pony (has magic that) makes stuff grow. Unicorns have (clearly seen) magic that makes stuff move. Pegasus have wings and can fly. So, what I'm looking for here is a rundown, with pictures to back up what's been stated, about what each race's abilities are. (It's easy to state what their abilities are, but I prefer to see an actual picture of it as the act in action.) I read over on the earth pony biased (or something like that) thread about such traits as earth ponies having tremendous strength (makes me wonder how so after seeing AJ, Big Mac, and Pinkie Pie's sister Maude at work), and that they, and zebra too, can use their tail like an appendage too in order to grip things. The thing is, my goal here is to get together a single post that lists ALL of these traits so, in the future, when someone else (like me who's not a super die hard fan of the show and doesn't know every tiny detail of every aspect of it) is wanting to write a fic and get the details correct on all of their (currently known) traits, they'll have someplace they can go to in order to find all of the details needed. ...well... that... and I'm honestly curious about just what traits they all have. (Mind you, yes I know we can do whatever we want in fanfics, but still, I'm a bit of a stickler for getting details right. It'd just bother the dickens outta me if I had any doubts that I got something wrong.) * * * * * So, for those of you who are die hard knowledgable about the series and knows all of these traits, (especially any that aren't listed) please feel free to share. It'd be appreciated! <3 Please and thank you in advance! * * * * * The categories are (since, for my limited little view, they do seem to be different) Alicorn - (Main) Princess Status (i.e. Celestia and Luna) Control planetary bodies (I figure that since, to date, we only have the 2 to base our information from, that will be the best for information purposes.) Princess Alicorn Abilities by Princess : Celestia - Can raise the sun Luna - Can raise the moon Can enter dreams/nightmares to offer guidance, clarity, and comfort (But how? When someone has a nightmare, does it set off some sort of mental alarm for the princess? Does it happen for EVERY pony that has a nightmare, or only certain types of nightmares?) Alicorn - (Lesser) Princess Status (i.e. Candace and Twilight) Unicorn *Uses magic to move items (though this makes me wonder. As seen above, though Luna's special skill is only for raising the moon, she is raising the sun, and clearly Celestia must've been raising the moon all the years her sister was trapped on the moon, right? Can the same hold true for all unicorns? Just because their special skill is for working with 1 particular object, that they can move / manipulate any object?) And just how powerful is a typical unicorn's power? We see when Rarity was getting her cutie mark, that, thanks to RainbowDash's rainboom, her horn ticked on and actually dragged Rarity all the way to a huge rock that was full of gems. Pegasus Can Fly Can control the weather Clouds are solid ground for them to walk/run/live on Earth *Great Strength (Not entirely certain if we can use Maud has a good example of strength, seeing as she threw a huge boulder which outrighed shocked RainbowDash. If all earth ponies could do this, and RainbowDash had seen others doing it, she wouldn't have been so shocked, right? As well as her literally drilling into a boulder to save Pinkie Pie's life. And, I'd think, that if Pinkie was able to do this on her own, she would've just drilled right through the rock herself as it was bearing down on her. ... right?) *Also falling under the 'strength' category, can we use RainbowDash and Rarity as valid examples of their entire race strength-wise, or would this be unfair? Because RainbowDash had difficulty carrying -more like dragging- a rock *candy* necklace Whereas, in other episodes, we've seen Rarity carrying a huge BOULDER -more than once- on her back and even PinkiePie lifting up a boulder *then again, I guess it's a bit unfair to use PinkiePie as any sort of standard. Not with all of the 4th wall breaking she consistently does* Can grasp items with their tail (I've read this. I don't recall where it's been shown. Can someone screencap it for me?) Have inherent and subtly seen magic that helps plants grow Zebra ~~~~~~~~~~~ And last but not least, just idle curiousity here. Are the ponies, at least somewhat, telepathic? The reason I ask this is because (is it just me??) it kinda seems like a LOT of ponies names match their role in life. This isn't a 100% the same for everyone, but still. (Yes, yes, yes, I know, the names have to sorta match the pony's role just for toy marketing purposes, but still. Not taking that into account, when they name their offspring, on some unconscious level are they telepathic and give their kids names that'll match their, eventual, special skill in life?)

    Real Life's Mane Six?

    If real life had a "mane six" so to speak, who would they be? (Not cartoon Earth =P) ... Please don't say Justin Bieber.
  17. I wonder. So let's try to get to the bottom of this, together. To start off, though, we have to take a look at what we already know about alicorns; or rather, natural alicorns, meaning Celestia and Luna, the originals. According to the Journal of the Two Sisters, several important factors of alicorns/ Celestia and Luna are mentioned. 1: It's heavily implied that the royal sisters were born alicorns, and that other alicorns existed in their time. This is found pretty early on in the journal, where it states (Luna's journal entry): “Oh forget it. I was going to try to write in the ROYAL CANTERLOT VOICE, which Celestia and I learned when we were fillies. The Alicorns thought it was an important part of our education...” and “”see, when we ran and flew in the hills of Canterlot, we'd pretend we were princesses...” 2: Born alicorns don't require ascension to princesshood through a feat of exhibiting and understanding of magic. Neither Luna nor Celestia were given princess status for any grand accomplishment that turned them into an alicorn, like Twilight, but simply for already being an alicorn, who never ascended from a “lesser” race of pony. Referencing the Journal of the Two Sisters, it states “They knew that Alicorns stood for everything Equestria was founded upon: love, harmony, and friendship. And because Alicorns are a combination of Pegasi, Unicorn, and Earth ponies, they believed that we could represent the citizens of Equestria in an unbiased manner......so they asked us to be their princesses.” Now that we can get a sense of how Natural Born Alicorns work and ascent to royal status, what about 'lesser' ponies who can become Alicorns? How can earth, unicorn, and pegasus ponies become alicorns, and get title of princess? To start, I think it's best we simply assume that Earth ponies, unicorns, and pegasus share a similar ancestor race- that being – you guessed it, Alicorns. Alicorns, as stated previously, are a race all their own; and have perfect understanding and are representations of 'peace'. Friendship, love, and harmony. It's difficult to imagine any pony race existing before the alicorns, who likely made the world a very pleasant place to live, when they were more prevalent (something along the lines of Garden of Eden, I'd assume) But the “master race” that Alicorns were eventually likely branched off into 3 separate races that they represented- Pegasi, Unicorns, and Earth ponies- through the generations. And while those 'lesser' ponies weren't a combination of the 3 races, like the Alicorns, they all still carried their ancestral Alicorn genes. I feel this is a proper assumption that the MLP series itself hints at. Take for example, Mr and Mrs Cake- two Earth ponies, giving birth to a filly who's a unicorn, and a colt who's a pegasus. Easily explained with Alicorn ancestral genes in their DNA. Now, as for a unicorn, earth, or pegasi pony transforming into an alicorn- let me just state- CELESTIA/ LUNA ARE NOT the ones who transform other ponies into alicorns. Because there seems to be a common misconception that they do, when this is not actually the case. (carefully observing “Magical Mystery Cure” one can see that Celestia's horn never glows in Twi's transformation scene, but rather, it's a magical energy that comes out of Twilight, envelops, and transforms her) First, taking a look at Cadance. In the book “Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell”, it tells of Cadance's transformation to alicorn and the accomplishment that triggered it. “As a baby pegasus Cadance was found in the woods by earth Ponies, who took her into their village. When she grew up, she reversed a love-stealing spell cast by a pony named Prismia.” Prismia wore a magic-enhancing necklace that amplified her evil and jealousy, but when Cadance confronted her, the necklace amplified Cadance's love. Once Prismia changed her horrible ways, Cadance was surrounded by magical energy and transported to a strange place where she met Celestia, who adopted her as her royal niece. Since the Alicorns, according to the Journal of the Two sisters- represent Friendship, love, and harmony, I suspect that in order for a non-Alicorn pony to transform into one, they have to accomplish a task that proves that they understand and have mastered those three attributes. This was possible for Cadance, who already had the utmost understanding of Love, given it was her special talent and what her cutie mark represented. She had fought for and brought about harmony against Prismia, and understanding of Friendship was a given, seeing as how love is just a higher form of it. Once all three elements are realized and mastered in a pony, then it must react with or trigger the dormant Alicorn gene in a pony that does, and transforms them. This was also seen in Twilight, who also accomplished/ understood the magic of friendship (enough to discover that its its own unique kind of magic, even, and above simple Alicorn/ earth/ unicorn/ or pegasus magic), was a champion of harmony (along with her friends), and also mastered/ understood love (in the form of loving her friends). At least, that's my understanding of it. But what does everyone else think about how non-alicorn ponies become alicorns?

    A sketch of Luna I did while she was on the moon
  19. There was a 4.2 Earthquake in Michigan today and for us that like BIG .... ... but all that happen was a plastic chair fell over and small damage. So did any other pony fell that ? PS : I know other places in the USA get them but in Michigan we have not gotten an earthquake like that in like that in .......FOREVER !!! ( well when I was very young there was a big one in 1999 I know cuz I got scared and knocked over my Lego village back when they sold the medieval sets and I was like 4 when it happen )
  20. Luna the Great of all the Russias

    How do you think MLPFIM universe would translate to Earth?

    What do you think Earth would look like politically, ethnically, etc. if it were based on the MLPFIM universe? For me, I imagine it would look something like this (to be update as we know more about MLPFIM universe). The borders of Equestria, I imagine, would originally be roughly that of the Roman Empire and over centuries would have expanded east to the Ural Mountains, north to Scandinavia and west colonizing at least North America which would have involved annexing much of the territories originally belonging to that of the Buffalos. I'm unsure whether Equestria would have done colonization of Siberia. Equestria would primary consist of ethnic ponies. I imagine the Crystal Empire from the show to more or less be a city-state located in Norway in the present time, but in the past as a Scandinavian empire (light pink representing former territory annexed by Equestria). I thought it made sense for the Crystal Empire to be Scandinavian because it has been said in the show that it was located in the Frozen North; the capital of Norway, Oslo, is relatively close to a mountain range. I thought of the possibility of the Crystal Empire being of Russian origin, but that would mean that the Empire would have had to have been located near the Ural Mountains which is the transition point from Europe to Asia. The territory of Saddle Arabia I imagine would include that of the Middle East and North Africa and consisting primarily of ethnic Horses. This is somewhat based off of the territories of past Islamic Empires such as the Abbasid Caliphate and Ottoman Empire. The territory in Central Asia I imagine would be the home of the Changelings or [former] Changeling Empire. I thought it would make sense for them to be of that origin on Earth because of their horde characteristics; this is how the Mongols were described in history. So their territory would roughly be that of the Mongolian Empire; whether it would be united or divided in the show is unknown. Territory of the Zebras are present in south-eastern Africa which is based on the locations zebras live/have lived in. The territory of the Buffalos was chosen based on their actual living location (at least what it used to be) in North America. From the conflicts between ponies and Buffalos, some their territories would have already been annexed by Equestria (territorial loss represented by light brown). The Dragon territories are spread throughout the world mostly in volcanic regions. Because of vast geographical separation, I imagine the ethnicities of dragons to vary. Aspects not covered as of yet: -Origin of Griffins -Origin of Centaurs -Origin of Minotaurs -Origin of Sea Serpents -Origin of Mules (or possibly no origin due to horse/pony and donkey hybrid) -Origin of Donkeys -Origin of Goats (are they sentient..?) -East and South Asia -West and Central Africa -South America -Oceania Thoughts? Agree or disagree?

    We Are Small

    After watching this video you start to realize how small we are compared to everything else. How can people say we are alone in the universe.
  22. You are informed that they are doing a cultural exchange with earth and ponyville and this is a one time offer you can either go to ponyville and spend a month there or you can become a host family and be able to show one of the mane 6 around your home town for a month but you can not do both. what do you do.

    Ponies on Earth

    Im thinking of writing a FanFic and I would love some of your opinions. I only have general concepts down and need some ironing out The story would feature the main 6 getting summoned to our world. The only kink is that they have no idea how to get back. Lost in this alien world each of them ends up meeting a human. 3 bronies and 3 non-bronies However, their presence doesn't go unknown. The government learns about the "alien invaders" and our adventure really kicks off. Unfortunately they aren't the only ones looking for the ponies
  24. (Oh and I almost forgot, if this thread should not be posted her please move it, I was not really sure because it cross over the different forums) Hello, This post is about some things I have thought about lately. Well, to begin, if you have not heard about the Lizzards situation and the PSN Network(and other gaming servers) being down, here´s a video explaining the hole situation. And the newest information on this is that anonymous has chosen to help FBI with catching Lizzardsquad. All this got me thinking about, how far are we actually are from a dystopian or cyberpunk situation. But before I draw my conclusion that subject. Let me tell you about another link between our world and the dystopian/cyberpunk world. What I´m talking about is a game called, ingress. It´s a gps based game where you defend and take over portals. When you move around with say your phone for example, you also move around in the ingress world. But now, how do I link this to the real world. Well, let´s say that these portals where servers and that the where protecting secret and important data, have you begun to feel that cyberpunk feeling yet? Then it would not be a game anymore. The guys playing this games would not be players any more, they would be hackers. It would be a perfect setting for a cyberpunk or dystopian novel. And now for the last scaring touch to it all, all this that the lizzard squad is doing, as I referred to in the beginning of this post, is so incredible simple to do. Of course I´m not going to give you any instructions because these things is extremely illegal. But imagine a world where you have the power to take down massive servers with only your smartphone, some would call this a cyberpunk/dystopian story but with the right knowledge, then this is reality. So what thoughts do you have about all this, is the world already a cyberpunk story despite the fact that the dystopian catastrophe has not happen...just yet - Sonicrainboom97
