You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I only know about Patton Oswalt from Transformers.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:11 AM)

We won because Ellen kept going up the other teams and telling them to not worry about their hair looking silly in their helmets.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:10 AM)

I had a dream I was in a team kick scooter competition and the 3 people on my team were Ellen DeGeneres, Patton Oswalt, and my third grade bus driver.

Ordered a watchmaker pin remover from Amazon.

No, bought the set at a convention.

@  Robowang : (20 October 2017 - 08:14 AM)

That's never good. Buy it from a place that will replace it?

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 04:57 AM)

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

BERNIEEEEEEEE...

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2017 - 10:22 AM)

I'm not American. Should I do something about it or just ignore it.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 08:48 AM)

I doubt we'd have a chance with Hillary either. Didn't she get like 100k from Comcast? Both parties are pretty dang corrupt. If only Bernie...

@  2017 : (17 October 2017 - 05:56 PM)

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:39 PM)

Yeah, it's the Allspark.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Okay, so it is the allspark doing it, and not some piece of malware I need to run a system scan over, that's basically all I wanted to know.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

Would it? The ponies seem to walk normally on clouds. I think that pegasi can alter the composition of clouds, making them harder or softer, but I could be wrong about that.

Yeah, still not feeling any excitement. At best, this is a step to the side for Twilight. It still feels less impressive than the actual destiny that was hinted for Twilight.

The one that you created in your head?

Twilight becoming the next Star Swirl the Bearded, a wizard who's legend has lasted longer than that of even Celestia. It fits with all the hints about Twilight's magical abilities being special, while Twilight getting a royal title doesn't really connect to anything.

Twilight's magical skill and intelligence have been focused on for the entirety of the series. Twilight being a legendary wizard has been foreshadowed since The Cutie Mark Chronicles. Twilight becoming a princess seems completely unrelated to what she has done.

Being a princess might have more to do with magic than has ever been hinted in show, but we're going to have to wait for the next episode for that.

... yeah, I don't see where any of that "next Starswirl the Bearded" stuff was hinted at all. And to say being a Princess won't have anything to do with her magical abilities assumes a lot, also.

Given that managing a country has been shown to be a political task, there's no reason to assume it would revolve around magic. The episode might change that, but at the moment, there's nothing linking magic with the title.

Not specifically being Star Swirl, but Twilight's magic has been focused on a lot through the series. It's the only thing that has been given a focus as meaning something special in the future. Assuming that she will become an important wizard is the most logical conclusion.

Even in the third season, Celestia was talking about Twilight advancing in her career as a student of magic, and Luna was shown holding a book with stars and swirls on it. Simple conclusion is that Twilight is following Star Swirl's path. This season also had a couple of episodes focusing on Twilight learning and using more powerful magic.

The summary itself mentions Twilight writing her own magic.

And Twilight has been given political and social responsibilities from pretty much the start.

So... yeah.

Twilight's brother was the Captain of the Guard before becoming a prince, and Twilight has actually been given more responsibility than Cadance, who has always been a princess. Twilight's social and political responsibilities seem independent of being royalty.

She's been treated as more important than just a princess throughout the series, and this honestly kind of devalues her accomplishments, in my opinion.

How writing magic links to becoming a princess is currently unexplained. The synopsis makes it sounds like becoming a princess was Twilight's destiny, rather than granted as a reward for writing new magic, which makes slightly more sense.

I think you're niggling over details and prioritizing your own interpretations over any others.

Any search for foreshadowing involves niggling over details.

She has great magical power and skill, that leads to being a powerful wizard. Simplest thing in the world, nothing complicated enters into it.

Twilight's magical growth has been given more focus than her growth in other areas. Everything else she has done has extended from her career as a student of magic. How being a student of magic turns to being a princess, I don't know. Maybe the explanation the cartoon gives will make sense, maybe it won't. Should be entertaining to find out.
