So the episode 100 confirm that everything in the show is BS and is all science?

and how all the supposed magic the show have is just unexplain cience? and how magic is fake in the world of magical horses?

but just every pony are dumb and dont know how stuff work, so they say unicorns have magic instead of doing resarch and stuff?

Yes, because that mean there is a reason why gravity doesn't work like we think of.

Anonymous 36801607

It would warrant investigation. Exhaustive, methodical, scientific investigation.

Anonymous 36801777


you would, of course, have to establish that it was gravity that was being manipulated to cause the desired result, and not simply overcome by a more powerful force, such as magnetism, etc.

That aside, >>36801584 has it exactly, despite clear intent. The idea that a law or observation holds some sort of value (or, even worse, MORE value) a year or a thousand years after its establishment is stupid. Laws are created because of and to explain consistent observation, nothing more. The moment someone can conduct a repeatable, consistent experiment that is contrary to the law, then the law is in error.

The reason the first thing you do as a scientist when this happens is to check your work is because observable effects are often more complex than they first appear, not because the law itself is holy.

That all said, it's not impossible to categorize magic in a scientific manner. (even if it never works when applying it to an actual literary work because the writer inevitably slips up.) It would simply be another force to be studied.

and all *that* said... I don't understand the original question at all. 'unexplain science'? 'BS and is all science'? I would appreciate it if the questions were rephrased.

So, the difference in worlds... Unlikeable Pony 36801774[View]

Do you think the girls will be revealed to be much different from their pony selves in the book? what do you think they'll go for their dreams and hopes for what they'll be in the world, since they can't do the same destinies as in the pony world? (barring maybe fluttershy running an animal shelter for her job or AJ buying a farm)

Think it will reveal anything about EQG 3 and Human twilight maybe?

Is the show still good? Pork and Beans 36801334[View]

I stopped watching after season 3 ended. It looked like the show was just going completely downhill after that catastrophe of a season finale. I watched a few episodes of season 4, but I never finished the whole season and I'm seeing that season 5 is happening right now.

Is the show still any good? I mean obviously, you guys still watch it and enjoy it, but to someone whos enjoyment died at the season 3 finale, is it worth enduring season 4 and catching up to today? Because truth be told, I miss the pony anthologies, and I miss understanding the references that saberspark makes, and I miss the fandom in general. Oh, yeah, you guys are pretty cool, too, I guess.

I didn't much care for Foster's either. Nor for PPG.

Anonymous 36801737

What did you care for?

Hulkbow!SMASH/3FWA 36801766

Of that era? I think Johnny Bravo was the only cartoon I remember finding entertaining at the time. My gf back then was big on PPG and Dexter's Lab, so I got plenty of exposure to both whether I wanted to or not, and never got into either. I didn't find Foster's until I started digging around for new stuff to watch a few years back. Watched it and Chowder concurrently until I lost interest in Foster's a few episodes in, enjoyed Chowder to the last episode.

Looney Toons was probably my favorite when I was growing up, so I took to Tiny Toons and Animaniacs pretty readily when they came out. Other than those? Hmm. Bullwinkle, Superfriends, Underdog, Groovy Ghoulies, Mighty Hercules, Catillac Cats, and Inspector Gadget are others I can think of offhand that I enjoyed at various times. Probably more I'm forgetting. Oh, He-Man was cheesy fun too.

Do you think the studio is aware of the quality of an episode before it airs? Autistic_Anon!BRATzK6Q6o 36801617[View]

Everybody who's got a "herp derp it's a shoooooooooe for keeeeeeeds, they don't kerrrrrrr" go elsewhere. Your opinion isn't worth sharing.

For everyone else, I'm not trying to collectively shame the studio for making episodes that the fans aren't receptive of. I get that quality isn't Hasbro's highest priority. That's not what I'm asking. What I'm asking is, do the people who write and direct the episodes have a hunch ahead of time of how it stacks up to their previous work? Do they think that every single episode they make is gold, and then are just baffled when the majority of the fans don't like it? Or do they know while making it that it's not their best work, and they're pretty much expecting everyone to hate it after it airs? I know this is pretty much gonna be a speculation thread, but I'm just curious to hear everyone else's thoughts.

Season vs. Season 2 (Episode 11) XylonLionheart!l7.O6DCdPw 36801648[View]

Well then! After a bit of a crazy episode this week, it's time to get to the comparisons. Let's get it rolling!

Season 1: Winter Wrap Up
Season 2: Hearth's Warming Eve
Season 3: Just for Sidekicks
Season 4: Three's a Crowd
Season 5: Party Pooped

Hmm... No big stand outs either way once again. What do I go with? I think I'm actually going to go with this:

Party Pooped > Winter Wrap-Up > Heath's Warming Eve > Three's a Crowd > Just for Sidekicks

I know. I'm not sure I believe myself. I think think that the comedy in that episode gives it enough of an edge to actually rank on top for me. There's quite a bit going against it too. The yaks are just some of the worst characters ever in the show. Thankfully, since they are so minor, it's not as bad as, say, Pinkie in Filli Vanilli. For the most part, I'm just happy when I watch the episode. Call it an energetic guilty pleasure.

Let's make something clear: Winter Wrap-Up has an amazing song. The rest of the episode is very standard. As such, I sometimes think the episode is a bit overrated. That said, I still find it to be relatively entertaining. Sure, the whole idea of following tradition for tradition's sake is... not that great, but it's not enough to break the episode in my eyes. For many people, this is one of their favorites from season 1. I just find it average.

I like Spike as "competent snark" simply because it's preferable to "immature buttmonkey" that he's always written as in his episodes.

Not that I particularly mind him being immature, it just so happens that incompetence and "fucking everything up" often come along with that immaturity.

I dunno. I liked Spike best in Lesson Zero, Hurricane Fluttershy, Luna Eclipsed, etc...episodes where he's not constantly being the butt end of slapstick jokes or fucking things up.

As for actual Spike episodes...honestly, I didn't mind him in OWTEW. Cliche, but not bad. IM was okay too, I guess. But outside of that, most of his episodes gave him crap characterization and/or just treated him badly.

Today's lesson: boys fuckup everything, but they should still be given enough rope to hang themselves with.

Also, the princess of scheduling still needs to figure out how to schedule sleep/personal time. Or hire somepony to reality check her checklists. One would think Spike would have noted the lack of sleepy time thing.

Twilight: "OK! Here is the list for today. Skim though it, please?"

Spike: "Eight hours work, check. Eight hours sleep, check. Eight hour slush fund, eat, travel time, socialize, wait. Let me add one. All good!"

Twilight: "Rarity peeping time?"

Spike: "Oh, uh, I mean daydreaming. Whatever, it's the eight hour optional as-time-allows slot. Right?"

Twilight: "..."
