Feathers may not be fur but they are still fluffy.

So, it's been about 7 months and a week since I started HRT. And I think it's starting to get pretty obvious at this point.

Okay okay enough about my butt you guys


I wonder what it would be like if an anthro with horns such as these had objects hanging off of them, such as those air freshener devices.... hmmm...

Makes sense!



yeah lol, took pills for a month starting in November then switched to injections in December, 2 months ago had my dose bumped up and started progesterone. told myself I'd just try it for awhile...

I often wonder why they call it the "Dog Days of Summer", but never remember to google it. I guess i'll never know!

anywho! Chatroulette! the rules are simple

-roll a 1d10
-do/answer the prompt of the question
optional: you can submit your own prompts for the number you roll, to maintain the freshness.

(to roll a 1d10, you type <1d10> but replace the <> with [] )

so let's begin!

1. If you had to replace the "Dog" in Dog days of summer, what animal would you choose and why?

2. vacation time! you get a 2 week vacation, but it can't be where you live, and you are not allowed to work. Where would you go, and what would you do?

Oh, my God, I don't want to get into a quasi-rant, but this would be beyond amazing. I need dental work. I need a decent car of some kind. I need a decent car of some kind for my stepdad. I need to help my mother move out of her house. My younger half-sister will be a part of that. I need to work out travel plans to research the area that I want to move to, myself, and to finally meet up in person with my long-distance poly-girlfriend. I need to pay off medical debt. I need to pay off student loans. I need a personal computer of some kind.

Extra funds would also likely be amazing in terms of health issues such as looking into transgender related treatment such as paying for laser hair removal, height reduction, hair treatments, breast implants, and goodness knows a lot of other things. Outside of paying all in a row for a bunch of those such measures, I could look into specific aspects of diabetic treatment as well as cardiovascular treatment for my lung-related issues, with so much being paid in advance easily. Gooodness.

I'd stop worrying about starting a new month becoming homeless, maybe? Probably. Since I could buy some sort of financial instruments to have as a safety net behind me.

This would be incredible. It would change my life in an astonishing fashion for the better. It would be like going from missing an eyeball to having one magically grow into the empty socket via Harry Potter spells, I suppose. Or like having a beloved family member pop back like Lazarus for a considerable amount of time to resolve unfinished business. Or like waking up one day due to a space-time break in an anime-type world with talking bunnies, lions, tigers, and such becoming real. Wow.

Oh... goodness... I need to breathe carefully after typing this...

I think the point of it is to promote better sleep patterns in order to advance faster.

I tried it for a couple of days, but the fact that it needs to be plugged into the charger and lie on your mattress kinda makes it a hassle for me. Also, I don't sleep nearly regularly enough for it to be worth the trouble.

i've tried using it, but it requires it to be on your bed or very close. and my phone is on the other side of the room, and there are no closer outlets

so the few times i used it, it basically said i was dead.

still got some pokemon tho


In my case I also tend to turn a lot or take a long time to go to sleep when I DO go to bed.

The thing is basically worthless if you have anything less than perfect Hollywood sleep already


Or as we say over here, just a pint of beer.

Sometimes I wonder if people outside of Belgium can imagine stuff from around here.
Or if Belgium is just like a very strange unknown country that is hard to think about, like Andorra or Luxembourg.

Like seriously, I know all about France / Germany / Netherlands / Italy.
Heck even about Nepal or the Philippines, but I have absolutely no idea what Luxembourg is about.

There was a comment I read somewhere about how the Congo is like a very forgotten part of scandalous history that no one ever wants to talk about, while it's brought up everytime people talk about Belgium.

Even in Belgium itself, it's a pretty well known part of history and is being taught about at schools.

To be fair, most people focus on the early 20th century exploitation of the Congo.
But most people don't know the full story of the events around the time of the independence of Congo, which also somehow features CIA involvement. It's not pretty either.
And the role it plays on the late 20th century atrocities in Rwanda/Uganda/Burundi.

Anyways, I had the idea of mentioning a funny tidbit on Belgian comics.

On if the most famous Flemish comics that I expect to be there is Suske & Wiske, mostly a silly semi-serious adventure kid comic.
The comic also has its amount of spin offs.

One of the silly ones is the Jerom the golden stuntman series, facing the Superman-parody character Jerom as a sort of superhero parodying the American superhero comics.
When in the 2010s they decided to give the Suske & Wiske comics a gritty adult version in Amoras, the Golden stuntman series followed suit with the J Rom Force of Gold comic books, who at that point really followed suit in the gritty American superhero comics style. In a way ironic, since the series originally was intended to parody the genre.

Why do people apparently like using Chromebooks? I'm on one right now, and this frankly blows. I miss having a real laptop so much, honestly. Had mine get messed up for good lately given a power cable issue (the pin in the middle of the cylinder-shaped plug that went into the laptop broke off in a way that damaged the outer metal connector type piece on the laptop itself, which according to a Best Buy expert makes it not worth saving).

What's up with everybody here, otherwise, anyways? I don't think that I've horse related images available right now, so have some something just generally computer related.

It's super flexible which is want I like about it. It's easy to write like python, but typed which I like, very easy native FFI, inline assembly, easy compile time evaluation, easily turns GC on/off. You can write embedded code easy but also easily create a high level domain specific language for like a REST server or something. It's reference implementation compiles to C and then you just specify a back end meaning you can cross compile a Nim project as easily as a c one. I also like how flexible the syntax is. E.g func(obj1, obj2), obj1.func(obj2) are literally the same as they should be.

But it'll probably go nowhere. It doesn't have the same level of industry support that rust or go has.

Work. I could write my stuff in rust but everyone else will probably be like wtf my dude.


>It's super flexible which is want I like about it. It's easy to write like python, but typed which I like, very easy native FFI, inline assembly, easy compile time evaluation, easily turns GC on/off.
That's pretty interesting. So if it lets you disable garbage collection, does it let you manage memory with stuff analogous to free, realloc, malloc, etc?

>But it'll probably go nowhere. It doesn't have the same level of industry support that rust or go has.
Neither does Fortran, but that language community is still around, after more than 60 years

>Work. I could write my stuff in rust but everyone else will probably be like wtf my dude.
True, it might not be worth it unless you need the (potential) performance boost/memory safety


You have the option to disable GC, or use various other schemes. The new default is ORC which is a reference counting scheme. But there are other options depending on your needs.

There's alloc and dealloc. But you can of course use 'new' to create heap objects.

The difference being Fortran was once heavily used by industry. Nim is new and has no legacy.

Suppose you manage to somehow develop superpowers, and you're able to instantly zap anybody you come in contact with so that they stop worrying or otherwise being unhappy. You immediately paint a smile on their face. They actually, sincerely feel happy.

You're directly prevented from doing anything whatsoever to help anybody in terms of real behavior, this order coming from the entity that gave you your superpowers, but you can change as many feelings as you want. Like if you come across a family in a burning building? You can't rescue them out of the flames. Just trying will cause you to keel over. Yet you can zap all of the scared neighbors and other bystanders watching what's going on outside so that they don't care anymore.

>What would you do?

>Would you go across the entire Earth and zap everybody as an end goal, if you manage it, so that happiness becomes universal no matter what the suffering?

>Would you only zap certain people, having specific goals?

>Would you feel like this doesn't really work for you as a superpower, opposing the idea inherently?

I'm so curious!

On the one hand, that straight up makes sense as a thing that you'd predict to happen. I agree. On the other hand, it'd be so creepily nasty in a modern horror movie way that I'd probably not be able to think about seeing it let alone actually see it.


It'd be pretty easy to just be a supervillain with a power like that.


...sounds like a roundabout way in which free will is ultimately violated. It would require consent. The nuance, however, may be interesting to think about.

In order for a person to sincerely feel happy, you would have to alter a lot more than just a person's mind. Because sincere happiness can be said to be interrelated to everything else that's going on in the universe, you can't just separate out and make a simple modification to a person's mind (or even environment) in order to create happiness.

It may, however, be possible with consent, to do something...\

But let's consider other more nuanced ideas...

Memories might be changed, yes... but memories are probably not the only way in which people relate to reality. You may be able to change a person's memories and make them happier, but would it be sincere happiness?

Or, let's say that you can actually isolate and root out a trauma that has been bothering someone... would the result be sincere happiness? Was anything necessary for happiness lost?

Maybe it depends.

Mind, environment, memories, trauma... I think changing any one of these may help make someone more sincerely happy, but it depends on the person's motivations, their consent, and other specifics of the situation...

She would make a good story arc. She was a "bad pony" and while she had a redemption arc in the movie, she still needs time to be good.

And while it sounds the same as what Starlight have, Starlight was more lawful-neutral/evil while Tempest was more neutral-evil.


And what was Sunset?


Sunsets in the other place.

OK so the unicorn redemption arc is a bit overdone.

Back before IM services showed previews of YouTube links, I used to do a variation of Rick rolling to a friend of mine.

We would be talking about something or other, I'd "find" a link to a clip or an article about it, and instead he'd get this from Dexter's Lab.

I don't even remember why this song, but I do remember getting a good laugh out of doing it.

What makes you smile, Ponyville?

My partners and friends make me smile all the time. Especially Gideon, my best friend. Just being around him and talking to him gets me a massive smile on my face, no matter where I am.

And of course cute animals make me smile too. It's impossible not to smile when you see a cute animal.

Isn't this such a nice idea for a first thread in forever?

Well way I see it, there can be two types of teleporters.

Either destroy the original, create a copy, no one's the wiser...
Or, portals, where instead of bringing the person to a location, you bring the location to the person.

Oh, and magic, but that don't count.


In broad terms, yes, I completely agree with that. I wonder if a back-up type could somehow exist scientifically. Maybe something that involves a sort of hyper-compression that turns a person into something smaller than can be properly imagined to where it zips out by itself. I remember some cartoon essentially doing that in terms of a guy stepping into a teleporter, a beam shooting out of the top, and then he pops out of the second device right after the beam hits it. Or maybe that was from a dream or something, hah.


It makes me wonder if teleporters were ever invented (which is they were I doubt commercial air travel will allow it which has kept a tight monopoly on distant travel for years) would they be ethical to use?

Like, say it's like how Star Trek does it, where given Transporter duplicates we know that it involves destroying the person in point A and recreating them perfectly on point B. Would it be regarded ethical?

Like, imagine if you use a transporter and then all of a sudden you're aware you're a ghost only to see someone else practically take your place. Would you be able to "possess" them more efficiently than a ghost could with anyone else? Would your replacement have a copy of your soul/conscious? All the while you, the ghost is ignored and non-existant to others.

Plus, I imagine portal technology will probably be slightly easier to achieve over teleportation.

Is there anything not that well known in your particular country that you've looked into lately that you want to recommend to others?

For me, I've gotten a bit into Agatha Christie related works, which doesn't seem to be that popular in the U.S. for whatever reason, and particularly enjoyed this murder mystery with my younger brother when we both saw it:
