@  Locoman : (20 November 2017 - 11:02 PM)

Today I learned that the credits theme from Avatar syncs up alarmingly well with the theme from Beast Wars.

@  Shrug : (20 November 2017 - 10:24 PM)

We badly want to move and completely lack the money to do so. Sigh.

@  Shrug : (20 November 2017 - 10:23 PM)

Which, the opposite side of one bathroom wall is the bedroom. The other wall has all my Transformers on the other side. And it was so bad the other day it actually stunk up the laundry room below the bathroom.

@  Shrug : (20 November 2017 - 10:21 PM)

And the smell is leaking through the bathroom. I'm guessing the vents are connected.

@  Shrug : (20 November 2017 - 10:20 PM)

Turns out they smoke. A lot. I know this because it's now cold outside and they're closing their windows.

@  Shrug : (20 November 2017 - 10:20 PM)

So, I moved to a duplex this summer. And I noticed my neighbor's kept their windows open all the time.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 November 2017 - 06:58 PM)

The Netherlands fights the sea every day.

@  Bass X0 : (20 November 2017 - 02:32 PM)

It's a Spider's Game over there.

@  Boomhauer : (20 November 2017 - 09:08 AM)

The best moment of the Emu War is when they brought machine guns to shoot at large groups of birds and at no point a single person in the room brought up "wait but emus are fast won't they just dodge and-"

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2017 - 04:53 AM)

Yeah yeah, giant spiders. Look up the Great Emu War of the 1920s for instances of Australia trying to defeat it's wildlife and failing miserably.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 November 2017 - 03:41 AM)

Australia is still fighting their war on Giant Spiders.

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2017 - 01:58 AM)

The queue is pretty long, and I don't think Australia is going anywhere any time soon.

@  Locoman : (19 November 2017 - 10:59 PM)

Welcome to the "political crisis" queue, here's your ticket.

@  Nevermore : (19 November 2017 - 10:20 PM)

Complicated lengthy coalition talks just failed.

@  Nevermore : (19 November 2017 - 10:20 PM)

Oh boy. Germany is in a political crisis.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 November 2017 - 01:25 PM)

I could handle going back to not existing. x.x;

@  Bass X0 : (19 November 2017 - 01:14 PM)

Life is the brief recess we get from not existing before going back to not existing.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 November 2017 - 01:10 PM)

Nah.. Life is simply the precursor to death.

@  Bass X0 : (19 November 2017 - 12:41 PM)

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 November 2017 - 08:37 AM)

You won't be at school or work anymore... so mitigated success.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2017 - 05:21 PM)

Just don't try to plug yourself into an outlet. It won't end well.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2017 - 04:57 PM)

Trying to stay awake at work or school is a lot like using your controller when it's on low battery

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:31 AM)

If you're used to doing it with tabs, that makes sense. It doesn't feel weird for me.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:28 AM)

Also, it just feels weird if switching between webpages uses the same actions as switching between programs.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:21 AM)

I switch between different things on the browser and click on various plugins and stuff far more often than switching from program to program.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 10:19 AM)

Yeah I'm mostly just venting from frustration rather than trying to convince anyone, though @NotVeryNightly I will point out that the windows for the other programs I'm running are at the bottom of the screen as well.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 10:09 AM)

Tabs are on the top, near the address bar, browser tools, plugins and whatnot so the cursor will be there frequently anyway. Switching windows would require going down the screen.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 10:03 AM)

I mean, you do you. No bigs. You've just got a fairly unique stance that surprised me.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 09:54 AM)

I haven't seen words on the bottom bar of the screen since XP.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:13 AM)

All of which is put on the point that I don't care if people want to use tabs, I just want the option to not have them present for me on my browser.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:12 AM)

@Shrug- A quick glance at the bottom of the screen shows me what is open and where. Load times are basically so trivial that the load indicator on a tab is something I didn't notice until you mentioned it. The "which instance is playing noise" is a fair point but has basically only really been approaching meaningful for me maybe twice in all the time tabs have existed.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:07 AM)

@NotveryKnightly- I have never encountered a situation where that is true, especially given that tabs are on the other side of the screen to the other things I'm switching through.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 09:06 AM)

@ Nevermore- The windows at the bottom have the names of the websites on them, presuming you don't collapse them.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:08 AM)

Geez, this is reminding me of the awful pre-tab days.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

I can look at the tab to see if it hasn't finished loading yet. Now you can see which tab is playing sound, so no need to hunt through windows to find a video ad that started playing.

@  Shrug : (17 November 2017 - 08:07 AM)

And a quick glance lets me know whats open and where. No clicking multiple windows hunting for something. No waiting for some window preview to pop up (which wasn't available when tabs first started.)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 November 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Switching between tabs is way quicker than between windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:09 AM)

It's like having a clear structore with sub-directores, instead of just having all files on your computer stored in one giant directory.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:08 AM)

This way, I can switch between windows and then select the tab, instead of always trying to remember which window is for which website.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:07 AM)

I find one browser window with multiple tabs a lot easier to handle alongside other windows than multiple browser windows alongside other windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

I find multiple tabs a lot more comfortable than multiple windows.

@  Nevermore : (17 November 2017 - 04:06 AM)

erm... no?

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2017 - 03:26 AM)

On mobile devices and whatever I understand why tabs would be a thing, but on a full desktop browser it's just- "Hey, here's a thing that's kind of like opening a new window, but objectively worse in every practical way"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 November 2017 - 01:41 AM)

Someone remind me again: which versions of the CW Hot Spot mold did not suffer from bad hip ratcheting?

@  BlackMax : (16 November 2017 - 06:33 PM)

Holy crap I just pushed the F11 key for the first time on a keyboard since about 1994.

@  Shrug : (16 November 2017 - 01:11 PM)

tabs being wretched bs is definitely an opinion I've never seen before

@  RC85747 : (16 November 2017 - 08:25 AM)

Vivaldi lets you hide the tab bar

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 07:45 AM)

Yeah but that gets rid of everything else as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 November 2017 - 07:33 AM)

Hit F11 Pennpenn

@  Pennpenn : (16 November 2017 - 04:15 AM)

I get that people like tabs. Fine. Whatever. I just detest the fact that most current browsers don't let you have the option of just hiding the bar away so I don't have to even think about the wretched bullshit things.

Pumped Up Pony and the voiceover on the educational film were both rather John Kricfalusi-ish elements.

Very good episode. With lots of nice visuals to episode. A masterful eye nightmare scene by Nayuki, roid rage pony which will proably get name from a secondary character from ren and stimpy, woodland animals cosplay pony masks, good variety with all the background pegasus, and fluttershy outfit parade. With the best one ebing the tree costume. Plus a toy character get her show debut with Bloomsforth it not one but two scenes. Like DrSpengler said the morale and lessons of the episode were very realistic done. In which incase you haven't watch the episode yet. Wheren't done as being predictible but how it would handle in real life if someone were to try. Defiently one of the stronger episode for season 2.

[Arson] 11:08 am: That wasn't flying, that was ... falling with style!
[Dvandom] 11:08 am: Without style
[Skids] 11:08 am: So is Blossomfourth the first toy only character to eb used on the show as background character?
[Arson] 11:09 am: Hmmm... Rainbow's grown a lot.
[scavgraphics] 11:09 am: so....physics presentation on the science of the episode?
[Caboose] 11:09 am: As far as I know, yeah Skids, she's the first.
[scavgraphics] 11:10 am: why did they put catepillers on snow white's face?
[Shoggoth] 11:10 am: Perfect for a civilization that controls the weather. Now, Rainbow and the edge of wing flapping, That looks like the first case of wing tip toe I have ever seen.
[Dvandom] 11:11 am: Just get all the Earth Ponies out of the way and lifting the water will be easy. icon-arcee.gif
[scavgraphics] 11:12 am: the earth ponies hold the water down?

[Dvandom] 11:13 am: New crazy Twi image.
[Arson] 11:13 am: Hmmm... I WONDER if he's actually sick.

[Arson] 11:14 am: Eeyup. Obvious plot point is obvious.
[Dvandom] 11:14 am: The Scouter reads 0.5.
[Caboose] 11:15 am: Wow, nailed it!

[Caboose] 11:15 am: AAAGH
[Arson] 11:15 am: Still, super Flutters will be worth it.

[Arson] 11:17 am: METALSHY!!
[Skids] 11:17 am: pony mask for the woodland animals. awesome
[Shoggoth] 11:17 am: This is hilarious icon-fire.gif

[Skids] 11:18 am: que giggle to scare her off

[Shoggoth] 11:20 am: Spike is the voice of cold hartless reason again icon-waspy.gif
[Dvandom] 11:20 am: Well, of course they have zippers. For the boots.
[Shoggoth] 11:20 am: Still, I really liked that "Fluttershy posing in front of the sun" bit. Looked awesome.
[Arson] 11:21 am: Yes. Badass Fluttershy FTW
[scavgraphics] 11:21 am: gee..if I was giving a Metereology exam....I'd have a bonus question about the number of pegasi needed to lift a lake up to a cloud city
[Caboose] 11:21 am: I like how Fluttershy of all ponies gets awesome guitar riff background music.
[Dvandom] 11:21 am: You already said that. icon-hotrod.gif
[Shoggoth] 11:22 am: did he sound exasperated at "more pound puppies"?
[Dvandom] 11:22 am: (I half expect to get a question about that at the review session)
[Dvandom] 11:22 am: Luna's abacus!
[Shoggoth] 11:22 am: Whoah, Spitfire?
[Dvandom] 11:23 am: Ze goggles, zey do nozink!

[Arson] 11:23 am: NOPE.
[Arson] 11:24 am: They'll make it to 797.7.

[Dvandom] 11:24 am: Wut
[Dvandom] 11:25 am: Going down flying....
[Arson] 11:25 am: Ponies can do that, you know.
[Dvandom] 11:26 am: Believe in the Kamina who believes in you!
[Arson] 11:26 am: Eh. I was close.
[scavgraphics] 11:26 am: do it for the snazzy goggles!
[Arson] 11:27 am: Whoah, SPITFIRE wasn't even helping!?
[Skids] 11:27 am: She was an impartial judge for the record attempt
[scavgraphics] 11:27 am: so dave, if they didn't have to power than fan, how much more power would they have had?
[Dvandom] 11:28 am: Yeah, the fan, even assuming it was catching backwash and multiplying up, would likely have drained some power.
[Arson] 11:28 am: Well, not Celestia.
[Dvandom] 11:29 am: I woulda gone with a cup anemometer, myself.
[Shoggoth] 11:29 am: That was a pretty cool episode.
[Skids] 11:29 am: yep
[Guardian Prime] 11:29 am: Awesome Episode icon-hotrod.gif
[Dvandom] 11:30 am: Anyone catch the name of Steroid Pony?
[scavgraphics] 11:30 am: forrest animals cosplay as ponies!
[Shoggoth] 11:30 am: I need those butterflys for cargo lifting
[Nayuki] 11:30 am: he didn't get a name, he was more of a visual gag
[Shoggoth] 11:30 am: YEAH!
[Guardian Prime] 11:31 am: I'll call steroid pony.....'Bulk'. At least until somepony comes up with one better.
[Dvandom] 11:31 am: So, Gabby Gums is one of the Mane Six?
[Shoggoth] 11:31 am: No, Gummy.
[Dvandom] 11:31 am: Heh
[Dvandom] 11:31 am: Makes sense.
[scavgraphics] 11:32 am: well, Pinkie and Dash weren't in the commerical
[Skids] 11:32 am: Gummy the ventriloquist
[Caboose] 11:32 am: Call him Bulkhead.
[Caboose] 11:32 am: http://tfwiki.net/wi...khead_(Energon)
[scavgraphics] 11:32 am: though I'm guessing it's the CMC
[Shoggoth] 11:32 am: No, just writing. No need to talk. Yet I thought the teasers already said it was the CMC?
[scavgraphics] 11:32 am: seemed to be a student made paper, i thought
[Shoggoth] 11:33 am: I will say I liked the bronze effect on cloudsdale that they had going on
[Caboose] 11:34 am: Yeah, the next episode is "Ponyville Confidential", it's about the CMCs posting this article that talks about other pony's secrets
[Shoggoth] 11:34 am: That fit in with that retro pep talk video from the start
[Caboose] 11:34 am: Or something like that.
[Dvandom] 11:35 am: But that's not important.
[scavgraphics] 11:36 am: so there was a groucho marx pony at some point
[Skids] 11:36 am: and the three stooges ponies
[Dvandom] 11:36 am: And a Steve Martin, for the arrow in the head gag in S1.
[Dvandom] 11:37 am: (Yes, I know he didn't originate it)
[Dvandom] 11:38 am: Yep, Tartauros.
[scavgraphics] 11:38 am: and there's that jester builting

That...

Was...

AMAZING!

Totally made up for last week! This episode had everything! Good jokes, fun callbacks, & an emotional thrill ride.

Fluttershy is not just my favorite pony because she's so cute & lovable. But because I connect with her as a character. I wasn't good at sports when I was little, I was picked on in school, I hardly talk so in this episode I really felt for her.

+ Rainbow Dash was probably at her most in character this entire season. Determined to succeed no matter what the cost. Trying her best to make Fluttershy join with the rest of the pegasi. In fact this along with the reference to their fillyhood past, the scenes between the two are sweet.
+ New BG pegasi! The one that's obviously on steroids was hilarious.
+ The scene where Angel & Fluttershy's other animals cheer up & helped her improve her confidence was sweet. It's a nice reminder that Fluttershy not just takes care of them, but they're Fluttershy's friends and are loyal to her.
+ The montage was epic. I love how one of the animals had a Derpy mask at one point.
+ Twilight not being able to speak squirrel, definitely had to be a PPG reference.
+ Of course, the entire third act was an amazing climax even if I figured how it was gonna go down.

Grade: A+

I believe there are some good ones from this...

That was so freaking good.

"Do I look like I speak squirrel?!"

I now demand Twilight cosplaying as Squirrel Girl.

That is all.

Since people will inevitably ask about pony names for the episode... let's get this out of the way:

Rumble (Thunderlane's little brother)


"If on Pegasus turf you should happen to tumble, look out, Unicorns, cause here comes Rumble!"

Slow Fluttershy upload makes Kyle angry and rash. This may well drive me to Tacos.

Hey, are Cloud Chaser and Flitter by any chance twins? They look pretty similar.

Excellent episode. I particularly liked how much RD wanted Fluttershy to get to be a part of the accomplishment. Yes, Dash really wants to do awesome things, but she also wants other ponies to do awesome things. The oh-so-Fluttershy training montage was a lot of fun, and also badger.

Relevant aside: I was autocrossing today--and having a rough time of it my first runs. The last run wasn't enough to win my class, but I brought my time way down from earlier in the day, and it felt great. Appropriate episode to watch when I got home!

Gawds, I was waiting forever for YouTube to put that up. Not exactly a 'fun' episode but a good decent one. I was actually most impressed with Rainbow Dash, except for one (maybe two parts), she was remarkably not obnoxious. She pushed the others hard but she didn't insult anyone or put anyone down or tease (as far as I can recall). I'm proud of Rainbow Dash in this ep, even over Fluttershy.

Fluttershy finally got to be a tree! Teehee! I wonder if it's an intentional callback to that Appaloosa episode? I can't believe she would lie tho. Twice even. Bad Fluttershy! A pox on thee! Fake pox!

Thunderlane? I kept hearing Thunderwing (Transformers ref, lol). Where the heck is Scootaloo? If a little Pegasus like Rumble can be there, why not her?

Who the heck is the benchpressing Pegasus, lol! Was Screwball from the Discord ep there?

Cool training work! I dunno if I wanted an actual song sequence there cuz I can't imagine how it would go. Hmm, ok, maybe as TF Dare or Mulan's Be a Man. Lol at Flutter vs Butter flies! Cool idea using those, Uh, whatchamacallits flower thingys to gauge her own speed. Btw that tree she was crying under looked familiar. Was it used before?

Anemometer, yeah. The big one is a lot of tech tho. They really need hurricanes to make clouds? Celestia is too important to evaporate lakes for Equestria? Boo!

Felt kinda sad that Rainbow Dash was disappointed that she can't break the record due to loss of a few pones. Still, glad she tried. Good thing no one was injured. Yeah, the new pegasus's look great in action!

The story plot is simple and no huge twists of so but I'm just getting back to Fluttershy being proven to be much faster than her performance here. She outflew a weighed down Dash in Discord part 2. She kept pace with her while dragging a cart in the Round Up ep. She was quick when shaking down trees in the Flim Flam gambit. Surely the hurricane, with the rainy fate of all Equestria behind it, is important enough to get her to break her 5.0 wing speed (the meter stopped at 795, right? And her fastest at the track was 2.5 or 2.3? I didn't hear Twilight say anything about it going more than it had to so I'm assuming Fluttershy only did was bare minimum).

Did Angel bunny frown when the squirrel gave the nuts to comfort Fluttershy? Like he didn't want anyone else to comfort her? I wanted him to have more scenes ala being slammed into the tree, lol!

Since people will inevitably ask about pony names for the episode... let's get this out of the way:

Flitter (cute ribbon)
Cloudchaser (awesome mane)
Thunderlane
Blossomforth (from toy to show character)
Silverspeed
Rumble (Thunderlane's little brother)

edit: No, the big muscle pegasus didn't get an official name. He was more of a visual gag. I guess the fans will have fun with that one.



Thanks for the names! My favourite was the dark blue male pegasus with the Ursa Major cutie-mark. icon-hotrod.gif

And for a minute there, I thought Thunderlane's name was Thunderwing... which would have been even more awesome.

This show keeps coming up with more and more new and great designs every episode. Is it wrong of me to expect toys of these characters? icon-fire.gif (And that reminds me, I need to pick up Blossomforth now...) Muscle-pony was hilarious, and so was the whole WWII-type hurricane documentary/reel.

Great episode! Definately one of my favs from this season!

I presume the "Do I look like I speak squirrel?" line was a shout out to Tara cuz she voiced PPG's Bubbles, who was fluent in squirrel.

Big Large McHuge pony, old projection film, lots and lots of Derpy, flashback to flight school, really fun to watch and laugh along to. icon-hotrod.gif

Was so happy to see Blossomforth, get get a smigen of character (Clumsy?) and even get a few call-outs. Hopefully we can see her freakish neon-pink hedgehog sometime. icon-hotrod.gif

So, WHERE are the re-scored training montages?

I was honestly not expecting that ending, it was very realistic. I thought it would go something like somepony would say "Without the rain water the small animals will starve!" and Fluttershy would be all like O_O and do the entire tornado herself, hence the name "Hurricane Fluttershy" but no, she started out at 0.5, which I just summed up to her being nervous, then through hard work and training went up to 2.3 and at the end when her friends needed her the most, she pushed her self to the limit with 2.7 wing power.

I liked the moral of the story, very good and relatable. Every little bit counts no matter how small it might be.

Every time that muscled pony came on screen I lol'd. Good work on that.

A lot of great scenes, overall very good, I enjoyed immensely! =D
