Uhm... So, quick question.

How are you supposed to react if you think you spot another Ponyville poster in the wild?

Running up to people while yelling "HI *NAMED POSTER*! IT IS ME! ANONYMOUS FROM PONYVILLE!" Seems a bit much.

Is there like... a secret word or question or something that should be used as a test? Should you even approach them? What's proper etiquette?

I don't think society cares about anyone.


I'm part of society, and I care

It depends on what you think of when I say society. I feel like society as an aggregate of individuals, cares a lot, and society as a collection of systems, norms, and institutions definitely also can be colloquially said to *care* unequally, to the extent that it enforces norms rules, rituals and protocols that impact individuals unequally.

Thanks much for the context! It's hard understanding what some things mean to the people living in them with just an outside perspective.


I believe Bonfire Night became so popular because it allows us to burn off left over Halloween spirit, so to speak. I don't know if parliment founded the event to remind us of the crime and punishment to those who threaten the crown, or if the people carried the tradition to remind them what could of been a revolution through anarchy. Whenever the Gunpowder Plot was rebellious justice or terrorism is up to whoever chooses to observe Bonfire Night I suppose.

What I do believe however is that the movie V for Vendetta caries a genuine warning that our current government, both UK and EU should becareful of. The more they push for control over the people, the more the pressure will build up until a breaking point.
At least that's my thought on it. I try not to delve into political stuff if I can help it.

Bonfire Night isn't as big of deal as Halloween. While many popular celebrations sucha s Christmas, Halloween, Valentines, Easter usually have merchandice, TV specials and movies after them, as far as I'm aware V for Vendetta is the only "Bonfire Night movie" that I'm aware of.

In a peaceful kingdom tucked safely away in a distant but fertile valley, there ruled a king with a dark secret.  His ancestors invoked magicks no one should know of, much less dabble in, and though they were long since struck down some of their dark relics remained entombed within the bowels of the castle.  They are presumed safe, until one day a messenger brings the king word from a village on the fringe of his kingdom.  They were assaulted by a small army, their bodies covered in a cancerous mass that gave them great strength and durability...and the captured villagers were exposed to its corruptive influence and...changing.

Rushing to vault that he had been sworn to protect, he flung open the doors only for his worst fears to be realized.  The Fleshgift Tome had been stolen.  The power promised by this cancer had severe drawbacks, and if the thieves weren't stopped they could destroy the kingdom as easily as themselves...

Well everyone, we're on the last week of Halloween and the first week of delicious food and fun colors until the winter snow falls.

So let's all enjoy a cup of coffee or any beverage of choice and talk about whatever is on our minds.

Hmm... That all sounds pretty bothersome.
Okay-ish is a better place to start from than many other places I suppose. It does sound like you have your work cut out.

I'm not sure I quite understand the anonymity concern? But I don't know how the American system works.

Anyways. Just wanted to pop in to reply before bed. Hope you have a great afternoon/evening.

I chose the wrong night to get high.

I got high a couple hours ago, then, about an hour ago, while I'm lying in the spare bed on my mom's room, my sisyer and my niece's boyfriend are helping my mother try to get in her bed. I try to ask if I can help and my mother says she's having a lot of trouble breathing. I get up and go to the kitchen, and find my sister following the hospice's instructions for this circumstance: a syringe of morphine and oral liquid lorazepam, a panic reducer.

Two things could happen, either the lorazepam relieves her breathing problems and the morphine relieves her pain and she wakes up again in the morning ... or the lorazepam doesn't help and the morphine keep. what happens next less painful and hopefully peaceful.

I'm kinda stuck in a panic attack right now. I'm terrified I'm about to be traumatized again. I'm too scared to walk back into her room to check on her cause I am terrified of having to witness another parent die right in front of me.

Stressful day?



Stressful month, considering the situation in the OP.

My mother is deteriorating further and all sorts of other things are are weighing on me.

I forgot to take my antidepressants last night ... and the night before and I am having a lot of intrusive panic, and my mood is rock bottom. I'm also struggling with intrusive rage, and thoughts about hating literally everyone I love.

I feel like the cognitive dissonance is inescapable, I feel like some suicidal part of me is trying to make me hate everyone right now, and it's terrfying me.

I took my anti-depressants early and I am calming down. But I am afraid to miss another dose if this is what my brain is going to do to me if I don't have these medications while trying to live through this.

Finding Nemo has been in my top 3 movies for many years now, I've seen it quite a lot of times and it's always fantastic. I personally consider it a flawless movie.

But since the sequel came out, I was always worried about seeing it. Not only was I strongly suspicious it wouldn't be able to measure up to the original, it came out at a time where Pixar films just seemed a lot more phoned in, especially considering it's a sequel to a film with perfectly realized characters. I wasn't afraid that seeing it might ruin the original, but I saw so little value in the possibility of seeing it that I didn't want to subject myself to what I thought it would likely end up being.

But then just yesterday, I saw the movie!
And lemme tell you, it was BAAAAAAAAD. Utterly awful, everything I was afraid of but twice as bad. I can hardly believe how trash it is, failing from every possible angle to produce a coherent movie experience.

But what were your thoughts?

There's a lot of different things I dislike about it, but the most egregious thing is the story progression. Characters will be arbitrarily thrust from one scene to the next for no reason, and they don't seem to have any agency. Much of the movie is spent in a facility that's basically like a marine zoo, and at least three, maybe four times, the characters just get unpredictably launched far into the air, land in very convenient small patches of water, and it just so happens to be where they needed to go whether they knew it or not. It's a lot worse than I'm explaining it, but the location of anything really doesn't matter when they basically warp around anywhere at any given time.

I thought it was a pretty good movie, honestly.

I don't really care that much about the original movie, though.

But I definitely didn't feel like it was the worst thing to ever happen nor that it was anywhere near "awful".

Only thing I remember and liked from the movie, was the seal gag.

Delete this fucking thread right now


The positives we can expect under Biden are basically a better functioning administrative state. The NLRB will actually uphold what little labor rights Americans have, the EPA will enforces some environmental regulation, the FEC will be a little stricter on campaign finance violations, etc. And maybe we might get a public option for healthcare. However, we will also experience war hawkish foreign policy continue and likely expand, Cabinet positions being filled by Republican extremists like Kasich and corporate execs, capitalists will continue to dominate the Democratic and Republican Party platforms, climate change will get worse and worse each year, student loan debt will rapidly expand, and even if Congress is Democratic-majority in both Houses, I doubt they'll do anything substantial (they barely did in Obama's first two years). We'll probably just get four years of nice sounding platitudes and then Kamala 2024.

Hey everyone! how are you all tonight?

I know on here, i do try to put on my best face and give good positive vibes to people to help them feel more encouraged and stuff.

but, as some of you may know, i do have generalized anxiety. built up from a lifetime of having to struggle in a tough family situation, and as such it has always been a tough thing for me at times. I've only ever had a panic attack once, but i used to suffer migraines, and to this day i do get headaches, body aches, and feelings of doom that settle in.

i do combat this though, with my martial arts, meditation, and breathing techniques. as well as my art, talking with friends, and finding fun things to watch. this has varying degrees of success for me, from working really well, to barely helping me control myself.

and because of a certain something that is coming up in a certain amount of time that has been weighing on my mind, i've been experiencing a lot more anxiety than usual, as well as rumination and over-researching stuff

it's not been fun, but i'm trying...

that being said, i never make a thread with the intent of just talking about me. so i want to know

How do you, fellow ponyvillagers, deal with your own anxiety and stress?

oh you didn't ruin my mood, i just was a little shook is all

and it's amazing rewatching and just figuring out how cyclical it all is. like in the begining, we get a hint of all the vices and behaviours

and then we see the "ideal home by first going through the window of the dark scary home" and claire is first shown in her scared wrinkled form before she wakens to her happier self.

then at the end, we realize that window was actually facing towards a roadsign for a burger joint, with a happy girl named Opal. and then it hits you in the face that this was her dissasociation from her horrible family life.

i don't blame her, and i fear for her in the whole show, cause her reality is truly frightening!

the mom... oh god the mom just wrecked me, cause that is almost exactly the kind of thing i had to deal with. albeit claires mom wasn't as loud :pp

anywho, i would absolutely love to talk about it, but i'm very tired, and i need to head to bed!
