This trope that appears to be taken for granted in a ton of media bothers me, and it sticks out recently in my mind from playing a game that avoids it. It's that trope where whenever a separate race of strange creatures suddenly shows up on Earth-- whether 'monsters' or 'beastmen' or 'mutates' or 'pixies' or whatever the heck else-- it's thought that humans beings will immediately try to make war upon them and wipe them out. No negotiating or anything: just hostility from the get-go. Hence they got to remain hidden.

Doesn't it seem odd that media that's trying to optimistic and positive, proving the 'power of love' wins, often has such a dim view of human nature? Are we really going to be inherently so savage so quickly? And such a wide scale?

What's /pony/'s thoughts on this trope? (I guess we can call it 'Humans Are Bad Neighbors' or 'Humans Don't Forgive').

The source for the first part on Barabbas is the Bible, where it specifically states what he was arrested for, which was treason to Rome.

The source for the part about him not existing is just searching Barabbas on Google. While there is plenty of evidence suggesting that Jesus, as a person, existed, there is no evidence to suggest that Barabbas was a real person.

Also, the whole thing about Roman slavery being less cruel is both correct and incorrect. The thing about Roman slavery was that there was as much a caste system in slaves as there was in the free populace. This is also without including indentured servants, so keep that in mind. But slaves in Rome could be treated very well, by the standards of slavery, or very badly, depending on where they ended up being slaves and who they ended up being slaves to.

The main reason that Roman slavery is looked on as a much less harsh version than other types is that Romans allowed conquered, slave nations to continue to hold onto their cultures and religions, whereas lots of other groups would not allow that.

But, as I was saying, it all depended on where you ended up as a slave. Such a thing was also mirrored in the American slavery system with some slave owners, particularly ones who inherited slaves, treated them better than others, but in Rome it was much more pronounced.

The subject of Roman slavery could fill several textbooks alone.

Is this the part where I relay the fact that in Garth Ennis' comic book series "The Boys", one so-called "superhero" named Tek-Knight actually hallucinates saving the Earth by FUCKING AN ASTEROID TO PIECES due to his crippling (and fatal due to his superpowers) sex addiction?

Although it turns out he actually did save one woman and a child from a wrecking ball and his compulsive fucking of everything with or without a pulse was the result of a brain tumor.





....

The Boys is a pretty dumb series.

On another note, the idea that humans would be the only race in the universe to have the previously mentioned ideas about sex has always vexed me.

It doesn't really make any sense. Why would humans be the only ones to be so interested in sex? I'm guessing it's just a matter of making the alien actually alien to us, but from a logical perspective I don't really think it makes that much sense.

I'm completely fine with things going back and tweaking events of the past to make sure the story and narrative flows better. Even something like the Hobbit went back and changed things once the storyline of the One Ring was created for Lord of the Rings.

In my mind, it makes more sense for pokemon to take the place of real animals than for there to be both. It also makes more sense the Pokemon world has it's own countries and continents and doesn't have an "America".

What is the etymology of the name "Unova" ?  Lots of Pokemon names aren't just random.  E.g., spelling backwards (e.g., "ekans" - "snake", "arbok", "muk").

i have no idea, but from what i remember it's the only region to have a completely different name in japanese from english (isshu)

so that's something

isshu means variety (depending on how its written, bulbapedia says it means "one variety" based on kanji but all the pokemon regions are written in katakana. but apparently masuda said that so i guess that's that)

most of the foreign translations have something to do with unity or similar concepts (i was guessing here but bulbapedia agrees too)

I played a blitz game against an evenly matched player.  It's a low-level game with a time limit, nothing too special.  But that said, I think this may be my "best" game ever that wasn't a meme game (fool's mate, etc.) - in that I had 4 inaccuracies, 0 mistakes, and 0 blunders - over 22 moves.  That never happens.

This has been on my mind for quite a while now, and it's about time I brought it up and got some feedback from others about it.

I've become aware that I write my dollar signs with two vertical bars, as shown on the right of my image. However, I notice that nothing else seems to do double-lines - from my keyboard to restaurant checks, I only ever see single vertical line signs like the left ($).
I feel like I grew up with double-line being what you did and it was how dollars were represented everywhere, but I now question it and I'm very confused; It's a Berenstain/Berenstein conundrum for me and I hate it.

/pony/, what's your take?

Spoiled milk is a stuck-up, sociopath bitch. Filthy deserves better. We don't see much of filthy, but whenever we do, he's a pretty cool guy. A bit of a big head, but has a strong sense of kindness and decency. DT is clearly a result of SM more than FR, she might actually grow up without her SM's toxic influence. So yea, throw her on her ass. Let her actually work for her keep for once.

>throw her on her ass
>let her work

this might violate the stricter new Adult Content rules, Insan, haha.

Since the Crusaders of the Lost Mark ep, DT hasn't been under the influence of her mom anymore.  That she aspired to be something kind and benevolent shows that Filthy had as much influence on her as SM, and I think it's clear SM is basically under DT's hoof now so it's really just fine either way.


I really don't think the new DT is going to let her mom be cast away.  If Filthy wants a better wife, he's gonna have to bump her off.  Besides, there's no reason to believe that he doesn't have use for her:  her cut-throat badness makes it so he can be a nice guy and still succeed.  Just sic the evil wife on a business opponent, etc.  It's a good cop/bad cop union and probably works quite well so, don't rock the apple jam selling supermarket tycoon cart, man.


Besides, you know he probably appreciates her energy *censored for adult content rules compliance*


edit:  oh yeah, your premise.  Rarity is better than sloppy seconds with a rich resaler anyway, she makes original product and finds her own gems.  She's already got best dragon and has shown numerous times that Spike's interest is MOST not unwelcome.  Now he's got wings, it's a very soon thing that he's gonna be of age to properly court her and btw has anyone else noticed Rara no longer pursues stallions AT ALL even though she was super-into boychasing in the early seasons?  The difference isn't entirely because of her success or becoming more mature, it's cuz she is clearly interested in Spike so if you don't agree then FITE ME.

Has ponies done a body/mind swap episode? And I don't mean one where the Mane Six swap bodies/lives/minds with each other. That's boring, they're friends.

I mean an episode where they swap bodies/minds with somepony they dislike, barely know, or can't understand. Giving perspective into how seemingly odd/nasty people's lives are different and similar to their own, and helping them to be more kind ponies.

Lost Pony gave me the idea that maybe a thread for all toys might be a good time, so post your favorite toys and talk about them? They don't need to be fancy, just special to you.

For example, I got these knock-off Power Rangers at a festival. They're made of really cheap, hollow plastic, only have one pose, and they feel like they'll fall apart every time I touch them, but they have a bond stronger than blood.
