Part A: Suppose a magic genie appears and offers you four choices:
$1,500 immediately, or $3,000 after 3 months, or $6,000 after 1 year, or $10,000 after 3 years.
Which would you pick?

Part B: Same question, but with monetary values multiplied by 10:
$15k immediately, or $30k after 3 months, or $60k after 1 year, or $100k after 3 years.

Part C: Same question, another multiplication by 10:
$150k immediately or $300k after 3 months, $600k after 1 year, or $1000k after 3 years.

Part D: Ditto:
$1.5M immediately or $3.0M after 3 months, $6.0M after 1 year, or $10.0M after 3 years.

I guess I go for the three years in every scenario. It's still less money than I'm going to spend in a lifetime if I get a family so there's still plenty of utility to be had from waiting? And it's not like I'm in desperate need right now, otherwise I might consider the one year option in some scenarios.

No matter what I think you'd always be better off taking a loan from a bank and going for the third option? Like if you just really need money now.

I think my answer would be the same, for the same reasons, except for the last one.  If I can start with an immediate $1.5m then I'm effectively done with money.  I couldn't spend that much in my lifetime.  There'd be no reason for me to wait for the $10m.

Tell Gene E you don't want any.

And add some airholes.  He really does need them.

Cold edition, what could that mean exactly? Well it definitely is that time of the year in our hemisphere where the celebrations are all over and now all we have is a biting cold and short days. This is also apparently the time a lot of people are getting colds, or at least feeling off due to all the weather.
Either case, whether you're feeling cold or feeling a cold, come on in for a cup of your favorite beverage, maybe with some cold medicine, and talk about anything and everything on your mind

Public Policy Polling’s recent poll on conspiracy theories showed “Four percent of Americans believe lizardmen are running the Earth”.

Imagine the situation. You’re at home, eating dinner. You get a call from someone who says “Hello, this is Public Policy Polling. Would you mind answering some questions for us?” You say “Sure”. An extremely dignified sounding voice says – and this is the exact wording of the question – “Do you believe that shape-shifting reptilian people control our world by taking on human form and gaining political power to manipulate our society, or not?” Then it urges you to press 1 if yes, press 2 if no, press 3 if not sure.

So first we get the people who think “Wait, was 1 the one for if I did believe in lizardmen, or if I didn’t? I’ll just press 1 and move on to the next question.”

Then we get the people who are like “I never heard it before, but if this nice pollster thinks it’s true, I might as well go along with them.”

Then we get the people who are all “F#&k you, polling company, I don’t want people calling me when I’m at dinner. You screw with me, I tell you what I’m going to do. I’m going to tell you I believe lizard people are running the planet.”

And then we get the people who put “Martian” as their nationality in psychology experiments. Because some men just want to watch the world burn.

Do these three groups total 4% of the US population? Seems plausible.

Wasn't that how "Jedi" became recognised as a religion?

I loved the shit out of this video, the amount of complexity and math that went into solving this speedrunning problem is fascinating!

Actually, this is worth sharing.  I've timestamped it to 4:33:  https://youtu.be/4_4VVzUS3rk?t=273

They go on this big long hilarious tirade about folk music that must be listened to.  They're so distracted by their singing that they don't notice Rebecca dying.  They don't notice until the very last episode when Brett is like "Where's Rebecca?" in this almost Home Alone sort of moment.


Well if it isnt ponies, mine exploration, prehistory or science, then it must be ships.

What are some food items of which you enjoy the taste, but for which the effort into preparing/eating them really turns you off?

Does sound nicer than radish. That mostly just tastes like menthol.

menthol? radish? i think radish tastes like a very bland carrot sometimes


I mean the wasabi horse radish or whatever. Just tastes like nose clearing menthol.

A superintelligent alien from another galaxy, whom we shall call "the predictor", comes to Earth and sets about playing a strange little game.  In this game, the predictor sets down two boxes in front of you, the player.  You are given a choice between taking only box B, or taking both boxes A and B.

You know the following:
- Box A is clear, and always contains a visible $1,000.
- Box B is opaque, and its content has already been set by the predictor:
 - If the predictor has predicted you will take both boxes A and B, then box B contains nothing.
 - If the predictor has predicted that you will take only box B, then box B contains $1,000,000.

You do not know what the predictor predicted or what box B contains while making their choice. What do you do?

Yeah I don't get that either. It's like the birthday paradox. Why is the canonical name patently false?

Another week is here, and that means another great time to come together and talk about anything and everything. Just like the chatter of a local place where everyone is a friend and you can enjoy a cup of your favorite drink and talk about everything from deep thoughts, emotional issues, and silly thoughts.

So fill up a cup of your favorite and join in on talking about anything you want

Good evening, my little ponies! As part of a staff initiative to be more transparent and accessible to users, we are publishing our Ponyville Transparency Report!


We will try to do this monthly! The thread will be open here for a week, and then moved to Canterlot for further commenting.

This month, we welcome the return of !!Trixie, Zeke Roa, who is helping us develop gochan.ponyville.us, as well as assisting us in moderating!

We are also seeing the departure of Savvy, Brazie, Abby, and Peppermint... whom shall be dearly missed. They are all taking a break from administration.

This month, we are also sharing the results of our poll, as well!

Please take a look, dear ponies: what we do, we do for all of you. <3

Celestia is still smiling... but i am not. It is frustrating to watch users essentially ignore the report, and then go directly into fighting.

i've moved the old thread to /rock/. And i've made a new thread. i'm going to put up a Canterlot thread link soon, where you can take further meta discussion.

My friends, we have Rule 1. Civility and Respect towards other users. We have a tiny group here that cannot seem to do that, in spite of one in thread gentle warning to settle, and then one hard warning under mod tag.

Do i like having to lock threads like this, to deal with fighting? No. i would much rather allow you to talk it out amongst yourselves.

But the issue is, as the poll shows, MANY users hate all the fighting, and your fighting is ruining the site for everyone. Please do not make me choose between your fighting, and yourselves.

at the end of the day... Ponyville is just not the place for long fights about white supremacy, or supremacists. You need to take this elsewhere, please. please!! PLEASE don't bring it to the site. i beg of you, please. i love all of you, and do not want to resort to thread locks and bans.
