Are ponies such a culture, though?

This obsession with friendship is all Celestia's and Twilight's pet projects for the country and then the world as a whole, if I remember correctly. Not actually something any of the other ponies define themselves or their country by, at least until they get a Fate-sponsored Princess of Friendship overnight and she opens a religious school about the whole thing.


Well, at least Tempest and Scootaloo know Twilight personally. I'm sure that if either of them asked nicely, she'd happily put a few extra bits towards medical research that could help them.

It's also possible working horn prostheses already exist, maybe even common knowledge to the point their village at least knows there's some solution out there, but Tempest never heard about it because, again, she ducked out like that when she was ten years old tops. I'd need to reread the IDW Comics to make sure just how much research she did about Equestrian ways to restore her horn though.


None of her comic appearances (in the main series, anyhow — still haven't read "Nightmare Knights") have the slightest discussion of whether prosthetic horns are a thing, or if not how soon one might be ready for clinical trials.

Though the movie kind of made it feel like her motivation for getting fixed was more about being normal for the sake of being normal than doing anything magic-related with her life. In that case, a prosthesis might not have been a satisfactory solution for her, even if it were functionally fit for a princess.

Plus in her post-movie comic appearances, she has somehow regained her telekinesis. So at this point it's kind of debatable whether she'd still want a prosthesis all that badly.


On one hand, Tempest is probably the most qualified advisor for military matters. Which isn't saying much, really, even without the fact that this "Commander" Tempest was nothing more than a homing missile in the movie as opposed to an actual tactician or strategist.

On the other hand, when I consider why she became this homing missile with anger issues, I can't help but want her to have a career that's free of all this baggage. Both her life and the fandom pigeonholed her into being a soldier, but maybe she had a dream job before she lost her horn?


In the comics, it was stated that she was set to go to the School for Gifted Unicorns with her friends before the Ursa Minor incident. Though her friends both washed out, and she doesn't seem like the intellectual type, so…

Though even if she herself doesn't have that much interest in wizardry, her raw magical power would likely make her the ideal test subject for prosthetic horns, so as to help prevent some other unlucky pony from turning out like her. "Guinea pig" isn't exactly a satisfying career in and of itself by most standards, but it's a start.

Now I'm also hearing that my brother's girlfriend tested positive for the virus and that now we have to stay from him just in case. Where's that damn Daniel Powter song when you need it?

Almost had a scare again when we thought my little brother contacted the virus, but he tested negative. It's funny that he rarely leaves the house yet he gets the most close encounters while me and the rest of our family work in public and yet nothing.

I love old ads from back then, it's always fascinating for me to see what standards were in place. We even had The Flintstones advertise cigarettes.

@Latecomer

I'm not sure how hard-fast these rules are, but from what I gathered:

1) We've only seen Plagg use his Cataclysm on a far greater and casual scale than Cat Noir, but I think it's safe to say that all kwamis are capable of using their powers without a host. Kwami are personifications of concepts, and miraculouses were created later to allow them to bond to human partners.

2) We've seen Plagg and Tikki fly across Paris without so much as telling Adrien or Marinette, and by extension one of the Peacock's sentimonsters was preserved in a whole other nation for hundreds of years, so I assume there's not really a limit on distance. I think a few episodes had Tikki and Plagg needing to reunite with their owners before they transform even if Marinette and Adrien already had their miraculouses, so I guess there is a need for proximity to trigger a transformation.

3) Not really either way. There's definitely a geas preventing them from saying it out loud when someone can hear it, but none of them has tried to disobey or skirt around that limitation to test the limits. For what it's worth Plagg has gotten pretty coy about admitting that Marinette is Ladybug just out of earshot of Adrien, and Tikki has dropped some very obtuse hints directly to Marinette when the latter is gushing about Adrien at the expense of Cat Noir that they are one and the same, so I don't think there's anything preventing indirectly revealing identities. The kwami are just respecting the rules.

4) I'm guessing there isn't. Master Fu made a big deal about Hawk Moth experimenting with his powers, and I would suspect Nooroo wouldn't have had a problem explaining some of the more esoteric uses of his ability, so I imagine it's mostly up to the kwami's discretion. On the other hand Liiri did blurt out how her power worked right to Gabriel, but it's not clear if she had no choice or if despite her visible fear of him she still thought it worth while to tell her prospective new owner.

5) The third season finale heavily leans toward no. Chloe tried to force several kwami to transform her, but everyone of them refused on account of (amongst other reasons) she didn't know their names. So it seems you do need to know their names and activation command.

Even though my professor extended the current module test to another week, I still don't feel ready because the material is just way too friggin complicated for me. What is there to gain for me for finding about z-scores and confidence intervals, I'm not gonna use this shit later in life, not with the profession that I want to go. The ending of April can't come fast enough.

I could imagine Discord showing up as an unnamed spirit character for like one episode, giving our main characters some sort of test…kinda like some episodes of ATLA? The ones with one-time spirits? So G4 fans go "Holy crap that's Discord!" while G5-onlies are like "Whoa, mysterious chaos spirit!"

So a bit like a glorified cameo. He can have a slightly different design and a different voice but still similar enough to clearly be Discord. But not as an actually established character like he was in G4.
Background Pony #B91A
I don't know. Of all the characters, I feel like he has the highest chance of coming back for one episode. Like I said before, the could want to test/troll the new Mane Six to see if they're up to snuff like the previous Mane Six.
Background Pony #B91A
I could see Discord being in an episode where he "tests" the new cast to see if they can live up to the goals of the old Mane Six. I say "test" because it's Discord. It's probably gonna be 70% trolling and 30% seeing if they're up to snuff.

I said i don't remember right out the door and you kept fucking prying like I'm keeping it a secret.

And then you act like i'm an asshole because you didn't think to ask the person giving you the fucking test.

It's not my fault you're both dumb!

According to Andrade in an interview he did today, the reason Charlotte didn't return until TLC is because a WWE doctor told her she was pregnant. However, every pregnancy test she took showed up as negative. Because of this, she spent months trying to convince WWE and the WWE doctor that she wasn't pregnant.

@Scrabbleman
Sure.

In fact being 18 / 21 yo may not even be enough to be called mature these days for the 21st century youths, and just because a person has lived for 18 / 21 years, it don't necessarily means they're ready for marriage. Since you brought up science and human biology of the 21st century, we should establish a clear indicator of what is and isn't physical and mental maturity and everyone should take the test for it once we've passed a certain threshold.

What I propose is the following: Once you hit 16, 18 or 21, test for maturity, and if passed, have an actual legal documentation of maturity be made, rather than "Are you above 18, Y/N"? Like 18 means anything. If young Samantha and Thomas are already saying things like "Don't treat me like I'm a child, I'm a grown up!" then have them test for maturity and prove them wrong.

A nationwide / global age of consent system is imo feels a placeholder, a bandaid, and may even halt someone's maturity. If you's being treated like a child all the way up to 27 then you…just may still be a child, idk. On the flip side, some young 16 yo boy in Afghanistan is already making a livelihood for hisself.

Twilight's five friends and Fluttershy's animals they was on the way to Twilight's new castle one day in May. Ecstatic Rainbow Dash that felt warm and hard under her legs was kissing, petting and hugging a bunch of Pinkie Pie's shiny, clear, large balloons in many shapes on strings for nearly 30 minutes. The ponies and Angel Bunny was grabbing a very long bended thick creaking balloon for over an hour that May afternoon. A week later had Twilight been looking in the ornaments on the chandelier of the tree of the old library. Twilight saw pictures of her old library. That made Twilight remember her lab under the Golden Oaks Library. Twilight gathered her five friends and Spike.

"Now I remember I had a lab deep underneath the Golden Oaks Library, and I left some test kits and books there." Twilight told her friends.

"These are the only books and other things from the labs I have left from that place." Twilgiht said.

So the six ponies and Spike they went out to dig at the old library. There underneath Twilight's old home had they been finding the test kits and the remains of the old books they took home to Twilight's new castle.

Generally, if you are on an NBN Standard plan, you should be achieving at least 40 Mbps, and if you're on a Fast NBN 100 plan, at least 85 Mbps.

The highest I've gotten across 5 speed tests is 3.1 average and 3.7 overall, and most of the time I'm getting under 1. I think this new machine is defective.

@RogueBadnik
Yeah, Discord did make a clone of him as one of the tests. Now, it could've been done possibly since DHX probably didn't like the idea of a reformed Sombra.
But i could be wrong.
