Indifference to Ponies Thread
« on: May 19, 2012, 07:01:09 AM »

For everyone who can look at a pony thread without taking a side.

Let me be the first to say I really, really don't care if you love ponies or hate ponies. Which is why I neither post in nor read other threads about ponies.

I did a tiny bit of Googling.

I have no idea why they're called 'indifference engine,' but they seem like they might not be horrible.

Bros of Dovahs.

Basically, Brovah's are dragons.

Ah, I see.



Incidentally, for argh-ponies, don't forget adblock. Right click, and the top option blocks a single image. I find having proper control of my browser is pretty satisfying.

I'm not sure what the obsession about ponies is. I don't want to seem critical, and we have a club for this at my school, but what is so great about a cartoon made for children?

Cartoons, any cartoon will bring a little color into your life.

Plus there is that wonderful concept of cartoon physics, which we haven't seen a quite a while untill FiM came along.

Do you have any idea how many great cartoons there are in the world?

Plus its not really made for just children.
And even if it was, as a person who just likes cartoons and animated stuff in general it doesn't matter what audience it was intended for, I mean I've watched far worse things, Winx Club anyone?
Now that is a show meant for *** little toddlers. *shudders* Its a horrible, horrible show that kills your brain cells. It does have a funny abridged series though.

EDIT: You can try and check out the cartoon "Ruby Gloom", certainly meant for little kids but its just so adorably made that anyone can enjoy it.

I'm not sure that's the real reason...

It is in part. But there are many reasons.

Ponies themselves are just plain meh, however pony threads are a different matter. they are a great sorce of fun, mainly through the arguments of pony haters vs pony fetishists lovers.

A decent article explaining some of why this show is so good.
Edit: Also, this. Because John de Lancie is epic.

"Indifference to Ponies thread"? Okay, then:

I can neither confirm nor deny that Schrodinger's Pony may or may not be seen in this post.
