  1. You know how many people think of bronies, so do you guys have an active social life
  2. Throughout history, humans experience different events and are brought up in different lifestyles depending on what time period or generation they were born in. Here is a list of the generations we know: The Silent Generation: Born from 1925 to 1945 The Baby Boomers: Born from 1946 to 1964 Generation X: Born from 1965 to 1980 Generation Y a.k.a. Millennials: Born from 1981 to 1996 Generation Z a.k.a. Centennials: Born from 1997+ I belong to generation z, as someone born in 2001. So, which generation do you all belong to? Do you believe in the concept of generations? What did you experience as you grew up and how did that compare and contrast with other people your age?
  3. Rate from g, pg, pg13, r or m! I'd say mine would r because language sometimes!
  4. So what were you doing 10 minutes ago? ____________________________________ I was just eating vegemite on toast because I got hungry.
  5. Do you wear a uniform of any kind? Any kind of uniform can apply; It can be military, school, sports, job-related or anything you can think of. Feel free to describe or post pics of what you wear for special tasks, special appearances or formalities beyond your ordinary mode of dress. Do you like wearing a uniform? Do you dislike it? Tell us what you think.
  6. I do usually because my Family is sort of a "Party family" if you will so we always drink together make each other uncomfortable and they always end up giving me a hard time about being a brony etc, good times! Welp what about you all!
  7. What age do you start to feel old? And does watching mlp or any other cartoons have anything to do with it?
  8. If so, do you wish the world was more logical or emotional thinking?
  9. I play tera on ps4 and I'm curious if anyone else is having trouble connecting. Also im looking for anyone who playsit.
  10. Now, I'm simply asking where active fanfiction communities are.
  11. For those of you who have a job, what do you like most about it? I don't have a job anymore, but I was most recently a zombie actor at a corn maze. My favorite part of that was just hanging out with the other zombies. We often had breaks between rounds, and used that time to chat, joke, listen to music, and eat junk food we snuck in. Some guys brought along a little bit of weed to share on the last day, too. (Not me, though. I'm an angel ) Before that, I was a bagger at a grocery store. Similarly, my favorite part was hanging out with my co-workers after all my tasks were complete. I lived in a small town at that time, so I worked with other kids from my high school. We'd just hang out by the front and talk, waiting for customers to come in, then pretend to look professional.
  12. So what do you think of the spookiest holiday? I personally LOVE Halloween! Its so much fun!!! You get to dress up as anything you want and go out in public to show off your cuteness/spookiness! Whats better is that you get treats for it!!! I may be 19 but I still go out in costume and eat delicious candy! This year I will be an anthro kitty character (not my fursona). Some people think its an "evil" holiday, which it pretty silly to me. To each their own I guess. What about you?
  13. I've had a Samsung Galaxy S4 mini for about three years and have finally bought a new phone I bought a Doogee F5. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B017GQQ4AA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It seems to have pretty good reviews on Amazon and Youtube and it's a decent price
  14. Do you have you ever been to chuckecheese ? do you like it, hated , do you find the weird or whathever ?
  15. Time Travel: Theories, Paradoxes & Possibilities Time travel may be theoretically possible, but it is beyond our current technological capabilities. Credit: argus Shutterstock Time travel — moving between different points in time — has been a popular topic for science fiction for decades. Franchises ranging from "Doctor Who" to "Star Trek" to "Back to the Future" have seen humans get in a vehicle of some sort and arrive in the past or future, ready to take on new adventures. The reality, however, is more muddled. Not all scientists believe that time travel is possible. Some even say that an attempt would be fatal to any human who chooses to undertake it. Understanding time What is time? While most people think of time as a constant, physicist Albert Einstein showed that time is an illusion; it is relative — it can vary for different observers depending on your speed through space. To Einstein, time is the "fourth dimension." Space is described as a three-dimensional arena, which provides a traveler with coordinates — such as length, width and height —showing location. Time provides another coordinate — direction — although conventionally, it only moves forward. (Conversely, a new theory asserts that time is "real.") Most physicists think time is a subjective illusion, but what if time is real? Credit: Shutterstock/Kim D. French Einstein's theory of special relativity says that time slows down or speeds up depending on how fast you move relative to something else. Approaching the speed of light, a person inside a spaceship would age much slower than his twin at home. Also, under Einstein's theory of general relativity, gravity can bend time. Picture a four-dimensional fabric called space-time. When anything that has mass sits on that piece of fabric, it causes a dimple or a bending of space-time. The bending of space-time causes objects to move on a curved path and that curvature of space is what we know as gravity. Both the general and special relativity theories have been proven with GPS satellite technology that has very accurate timepieces on board. The effects of gravity, as well as the satellites' increased speed above the Earth relative to observers on the ground, make the unadjusted clocks gain 38 microseconds a day. (Engineers make calibrations to account for the difference.) In a sense, this effect, called time dilation, means astronauts are time travelers, as they return to Earth very, very slightly younger than their identical twins that remain on the planet. Through the wormhole General relativity also provides scenarios that could allow travelers to go back in time, according to NASA. The equations, however, might be difficult to physically achieve. One possibility could be to go faster than light, which travels at 186,282 miles per second (299,792 kilometers per second) in a vacuum. Einstein's equations, though, show that an object at the speed of light would have both infinite mass and a length of 0. This appears to be physically impossible, although some scientists have extended his equations and said it might be done. A linked possibility, NASA stated, would be to create "wormholes" between points in space-time. While Einstein's equations provide for them, they would collapse very quickly and would only be suitable for very small particles. Also, scientists haven't actually observed these wormholes yet. Also, the technology needed to create a wormhole is far beyond anything we have today. Alternate time travel theories While Einstein's theories appear to make time travel difficult, some groups have proposed alternate solutions to jump back and forth in time. Infinite cylinder Astronomer Frank Tipler proposed a mechanism (sometimes known as a Tipler Cylinder) where one would take matter that is 10 times the sun's mass, then roll it into very long but very dense cylinder. After spinning this up a few billion revolutions per minute, a spaceship nearby — following a very precise spiral around this cylinder — could get itself on a "closed, time-like curve", according to the Anderson Institute. There are limitations with this method, however, including the fact that the cylinder needs to be infinitely long for this to work. An artist's impression of a black hole like the one weighed in this work, sitting in the core of a disk galaxy. The black-hole in NGC4526 weighs 450,000,000 times more than our own Sun. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech Black holes Another possibility would be to move a ship rapidly around a black hole, or to artificially create that condition with a huge, rotating structure. "Around and around they'd go, experiencing just half the time of everyone far away from the black hole. The ship and its crew would be traveling through time," physicist Stephen Hawking wrote in the Daily Mail in 2010. "Imagine they circled the black hole for five of their years. Ten years would pass elsewhere. When they got home, everyone on Earth would have aged five years more than they had." However, he added, the crew would need to travel around the speed of light for this to work. Physicist Amos Iron at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa, Israel pointed out another limitation if one used a machine: it might fall apart before being able to rotate that quickly. Cosmic strings Another theory for potential time travelers involves something called cosmic strings — narrow tubes of energy stretched across the entire length of the ever-expanding universe. These thin regions, left over from the early cosmos, are predicted to contain huge amounts of mass and therefore could warp the space-time around them. Cosmic strings are either infinite or they’re in loops, with no ends, scientists say. The approach of two such strings parallel to each other would bend space-time so vigorously and in such a particular configuration that might make time travel possible, in theory. Time machines It is generally understood that traveling forward or back in time would require a device — a time machine — to take you there. Time machine research often involves bending space-time so far that time lines turn back on themselves to form a loop, technically known as a "closed time-like curve." The Doctor's time machine is the TARDIS, which stands for Time and Relative Dimensions in Space. Credit: BBCAmerica To accomplish this, time machines often are thought to need an exotic form of matter with so-called "negative energy density." Such exotic matter has bizarre properties, including moving in the opposite direction of normal matter when pushed. Such matter could theoretically exist, but if it did, it might be present only in quantities too small for the construction of a time machine. However, time-travel research suggests time machines are possible without exotic matter. The work begins with a doughnut-shaped hole enveloped within a sphere of normal matter. Inside this doughnut-shaped vacuum, space-time could get bent upon itself using focused gravitational fields to form a closed time-like curve. To go back in time, a traveler would race around inside the doughnut, going further back into the past with each lap. This theory has a number of obstacles, however. The gravitational fields required to make such a closed time-like curve would have to be very strong, and manipulating them would have to be very precise. [Related: Warp Speed, Scotty? Star Trek's FTL Drive May Actually Work] Grandfather paradox Besides the physics problems, time travel may also come with some unique situations. A classic example is the grandfather paradox, in which a time traveler goes back and kills his parents or his grandfather — the major plot line in the "Terminator" movies — or otherwise interferes in their relationship — think "Back to the Future" — so that he is never born or his life is forever altered. If that were to happen, some physicists say, you would be not be born in one parallel universe but still born in another. Others say that the photons that make up light prefer self-consistency in timelines, which would interfere with your evil, suicidal plan. Some scientists disagree with the options mentioned above and say time travel is impossible no matter what your method. The faster-than-light one in particular drew derision from American Museum of Natural History astrophysicist Charles Lu. That "simply, mathematically, doesn't work," he said in a past interview with sister site LiveScience. Also, humans may not be able to withstand time travel at all. Traveling nearly the speed of light would only take a centrifuge, but that would be lethal, said Jeff Tollaksen, a professor of physics at Chapman University, in 2012. Using gravity would also be deadly. To experience time dilation, one could stand on a neutron star, but the forces a person would experience would rip you apart first. Time travel in fiction Two 2015 articles by Space.comdescribed different ways in which time travel works in fiction, and the best time-travel machines ever. Some methods used in fiction include: One-way travel to the future: The traveler leaves home, but the people he or she left behind might age or be dead by the time the traveler returns. Examples: "Interstellar" (2014), "Ikarie XB-1" (1963) Time travel by moving through higher dimensions: In "Interstellar" (2014), there are "tesseracts" available in which astronauts can travel because the vessel represents time as a dimension of space. A similar concept is expressed in Madeleine L'Engle's "A Wrinkle In Time" (2018, based on the book series that started in 1963), where time is folded by means of a tesseract. The book, however, uses supernatural beings to make the travel possible. Travelling the space-time vortex: The famous "Doctor Who" (1963-present) TARDIS ("Time And Relative Dimension In Space") uses an extra-dimensional vortex to go through time, while the travelers inside feel time passing normally. Instantaneous time jumping:Examples include "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" (2006), the DeLorean from "Back To The Future" (1985), and the Mr. Peabody's WABAC machine from "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show" (1959-64). Time travelling while standing still:Both the "Time Machine" (1895 book) and Hermione Granger's Time-Turner from "Harry Potter" keep the traveler still while they move through time. Slow time travel: In "Primer" (2004), a traveler stays in a box while time traveling. For each minute they want to go back in time, they need to stay in the box for a minute. If they want to go back a day in time, they have to stay there for 24 hours. Traveling faster than light: In "Superman: The Movie" (1979), Superman flies faster than light to go back in time and rescue Lois Lane before she is killed. The concept was also used in the 1980 novel "Timescape" by Gregory Benford, in which the protagonist sends (hypothetical) faster-than-light tachyon particles back to Earth in 1962 to warn of disaster. In several "Star Trek" episodes and movies, the Enterprise travels through time by going faster than light. In the comic book and TV series "The Flash," the super-speedster uses a cosmic treadmill to travel through time. Difficult methods to categorize:There's a rocket sled in "Timecop" (1994) that pops in and out of view when it's being used, which has led to much speculation about what's going on. There's also the Time Displacement Equipment in "The Terminator" movie series, which shows off how to fight a war in four dimensions (including time) find full article on space.com thank you - mlppotterwhoovian
  16. This is something I have thought about for ages, what with my dissatisfaction with the way things are. I came to plenty of conclusions (I am setting literally no rules on how you answer) involving other universes and being some kind of supernatural creature, and I think now I've finally come to an answer I never thought I'd come to: THIS life... except with all the most regrettable parts taken out. I mean, if we're setting no boundaries since this is purely hypothetical, you'd think I'd take full advantage of it by making it that I'm some kind of ultimate sorcerer or a celebrity. But this life is what I realize I truly want, it's just all the blemishes that ruin it for me. So if some ultimate power allowed me to restart life with all the knowledge I have now, that would be swell. So, if you could choose literally ANY life you could think of, what would it be?
  17. Since I’m on vacation to Tennessee this week, when was the last time you all went on a vacation?
  18. So I was reminiscing about the weird things me and my little sister did as kids together. I was wondering about what weird things everyone else did as children as well! Here are some things me and my little sister did. Weird thing #1: We made up a game called "Spanky the Baby". One of us would play the mom and the other would play the baby. The baby is hungry but confused the word "food" for "spanking" so the mom thinks the baby wants a spanking instead of food. So basically, me and my sister would spank each other as baby or mom characters.... Weird thing #2: We would stand at the kitchen sink mixing soap, old food, dish water and other things and pretend we were making food for "bad guys" in jail. We called it "bad guy food". Weird thing #3: We picked our noses. Instead of eating the boogers, we wiped them on our dad's shoes as revenge for stuff. We were only 3 years old doing that. XD There are hundreds more weird things we did but I'll save those for later. lol
  19. What things are you good at? Maths has always made sense to me. In primary (elementary) school they ended up teaching me higher maths as I found the work in my class too easy and boring. I actually enjoy maths, I just see it as a fun puzzle. I would get my dad to write me out equations when I was bored I was an odd kid I'm also good at computers apparently. I think that's more to do with the fact that most people are surprisingly bad at computers :/ If I don't know how to do something I'll just google it or watch youtube tutorials. I'll figure it out in the end. I've reformatted and removed viruses/malware from family friend's computers numerous amounts of times. I have been using computers since I was about five so that's probably why. I'm also quite good at drawing. I'm quite rusty now as I don't draw too often anymore, I should really start drawing more.
  20. I know I'm stupid for this, but I can't help it! Also, idk where to put this so Imma just assume it's here. If people like me are devastated by a convention shutting down, what will happen when the show ends? How will we handle it? This show has been engraved in many of us, even to a point it has become part of our identity. I'm sure we have a LONG ways to go before the show ends, but once it does what then? Won't we lose a part of our identity, a part of ourselves? Surely someone out there is afraid of this. Without the show, the fandom will fade away. Yes, maybe there will be some hardcore fans out there keeping the flame going, but how long can a fire remain? Will these forums still exist or will they die out like the show? I'm starting to see an uncertain future here.
  21. Have any of you guys had any regrets in your life recently? Share them here within reason. Me? I regret a few Topics I made in the Life Advice section in the past few months. I just came off as too angry without the appropriate standards to the point where one of the topics had to be locked by Admin.
  22. Hello. It's me... AveryGamerDude. Since I no longer appear to be under surveillance by the moderators, I've finally decided to return. I can't believe it has been nearly 3 years since my departure. Time sure does fly, huh? Anyway, I just wanted to apologize for my actions in the past. I honestly was going through a really rough time during those years. But I'm much better now! And I promise I won't be such a jerk now. It's great to be back! (P.S. Don't spoil anything from the second half of Season 5 onward, because I'm way behind and need to catch up lol)
  23. I'm starting to not see what's so special about being romantically in love with someone. I mean about more than half of romantic couples either break up with each other or divorce each other, while most platonic best friends remain friends until death. So I'm starting to think that having a platonic best friend is a lot better than having a romantic partner or spouse is.
  24. Have any of you invested your money into ventures for the future? Like mutual funds, 401Ks and IRAs, Roth & Silver IRA's, precious metals, exchange traded funds, real estate, growing industries, etc. Do you trade regularly on the stock market or buy something outright and wait for the right moment over the long term? Do you mainly buy to make money or to act as a hedge against inflation? In short, what are you doing with your money, other than spending or saving it in a bank?
  25. Ever since I had my DSLR converted, I have really enjoyed Near IR and UV photography. I just love comparing how objects look in light that we cannot see. Near IR landscapes appear dreamy with white vegetation and black skies. Flowers look so different in UV, with patterns that aren't visible to the human eye. I have a modded DSLR that handles Near IR, Visible, and UV-A with the appropriate filters. I also have a cooled thermal camera that operates in the midwave infrared band, but it's the size of a broadcast camera. Anypony else enjoy photography? If so, what kinda stuff do you typically photograph?
