      These are all good things for someone who uses his laptop as an exclusive media center as well as IRC access.

      That is all.

      Okay, I've actively watched the first season in its entirety.

      I've made it a point to find every episode of something I like and save it, but Ponies is not going to make it to my hard drive. The show is close, If I had more room to save it I would, but its not better than James May's Toy Stories. Or Peep Show.

      That said, I've found my assertion that the popularity of Ponies is true: it's a show written for 5-10 year old girls, but written by 30-40 year olds and produced by someone who did not want it to be My Little Pony. She (Lauren Faust), successfully turned the Hasbro Commercial that is the Franchise TV show into a story with more depth than you'd find in, dare I say it, any Sitcom, which is how I'm watching it.

      The very character of Rainbow Dash is someone I want to meet in real life. That's rare for a cartoon, but all the Mane Six are much deeper characters than I'dve thought, but still retain a classic cartoon goodness.

      It's still a kids show. It's still a feel good show with the "Dont you See" moments at the end. But the journey doesn't feel like a kids show, really. And there were some scenes that I found myself... Laughing. Which is rare for anything produced for American audiences (Wow, that sounded douchey) and me.

      It's like playing on a swing set. Joanna and I did that a few months back, at a park. We're 21. Too old for swings, I figured, but what the hell. It's still as good as swings used to be. And Ponies is just as good as cartoons used to be.

      I've been playing up the idea of "Brony" for the sake of playing it up. Last night, we had a party and I dropped references just to gauge the group throughout various stages of drunken stupor. But alas, on the inside, I don't care about the stereotypes.

      Devin's been raving about the show for a year. For that year, I talked shit about it as much as anyone else would. But, I'm saying here and now, I was wrong.

      And anyone who disagrees, well, All thou that have hated, shall invariably continue as such.

      BUT

      If the big bang truly was the true beginning of the universe, where all matter was condensed beyond possible comprehension...........

      ...And all resulting energy then cause all said matter to expand in all directions, and all excess energy brought some particles together and some hydrogen combined to make helium which formed with other hydrogen and created all other matter through the process of creating the stars....

      ...and the stars live, literally, off of the supply of hydrogen and helium, in a balance between the energy of nuclear fusion and the gravity of matter....

      ...and when that supply runs out, gravity wins...

      ...and in giant stars, black holes are created, and compact all matter within its grasp into itself...

      ...and while stars continue to be formed, live, and die, black holes increase in intensity and number as they begin to combine...

      ...and they continue to combine until there exists one black hole and all matter and energy orbits around it and eventually falls into such black holes...

      ...and all that energy causes a new big bang and the Universe is created again.

      This theory I'm now perpetuating is, itself, a perpetual infinite existence of the Universe and all that resides in it. And it is accordance to what I've found to be the core principles within the Universe: something is born, whether an object, a human, or a plant. It lives, it creates energy or transforms energy, and it dies, and the energy after death is converted for the life of something else. All organized matter follows that pattern along one time line or another, and the Universe as we know is is just the sum of all matter and all energy that interacts with it.

      Thanks, Carl Sagan!

      Now that's out of the way, here's an update.

      Living with a /fit/izen now. Still in Salem, but this time I'm living only a quarter mile from where One Flew Over The Cukoo's Nest was filmed. And it's a good neighborhood, relatively. Only 4 houses on this street, on my walk back from Safeway, smelled of Pot smoke.

      It's cold here, in this house. built in 1935, so it's as old as my grandmother. But, rent is free provided I make it a better place to be. Sure is a good deal for a roof and walls in a Northwest Winter if ya ask me.

      Why does it take hours for you to fall asleep? (That used to happen to me and still does from time to time but not as much now b/c I'm so tired I just pass out lol.)

      Ya I get what you mean... I don't know... It's really interesting though. I wish I could look more into it but I never have time :P

      Same here, I had all these books on it and stuff haha.

      And I see what you mean. The Big Crunch theory makes sense to me because the fact that matter is limited has been engraved in my mind pretty much. I don't think the other idea of the inner part of the universe fading because it doesn't make sense to me how there can just be a whole bunch of nothing in the middle, you know?

      Have you read any black hole books? (I have one, I forgot the title but it was really good. If I find it, I'll let you know what it is)

      Hey,

      So I noticed in a group forum topic from about a year ago, you had an interest in a possible RvBOR. Well, it's been over a year, and we're reviving the idea. You can check out our official planning topic here!

    • Atheist_101

      I see what you mean. Saying that there is absolutely no go is just as as ignorant as saying that there absolutely is one.
      I personally don't think there is a god, but I've been wrong before. Atheists on the internet are very annoying (sometimes)

      "fascinated " how? Can I answer any questions?

      I'd come up with a witty, yet respectable response.

    • Atheist_101

      I can respect your opinion.
      but you're missing out lol

    • Atheist_101

      8 years ago

      It's not that bad. I'd rather threads of ponies from cartoons than ones of traps, gore, this vs that, etc
      I also heard about the show from /co/ not /b/ (I don't really lurk there).
      Besides if /b/ was gone, they'd all flock to /x/ or some other board (maybe even start their own chan?)

      But one question, have you actually seen MLP:FiM? It's actually not too bad, at first I was like "wut". But then I got into the animation and the show itself, the characters are unique and funny, the stories and adventures are fun, and all that jazz.

    • Atheist_101

      8 years ago

      Also, I actually enjoy the show.
