I'm kind of amazed she knows the word 'contrail'
Digo 18th Mar 2021, 7:12 AM edit delete reply
Is it more or less amazing than how she said "rainbow colored horse" with a straight face? :3

Rainbow Dash's player has easily come the furthest in terms of buying into the premises of the game. Although that is, in all fairness, because she had the furthest to go.

Hah.... My mom thinks contrails are made up and don't actually exist, so they can cover up CHEMtrails... Which is a conspiracy I think only exists b cause someone decades ago misheard the word Contail and, ironically much like my mom does, brainlessly try to fit it into words/things they already know, rather then ask anyone about it...

When I was young, a teacher I respected said that it was actually large planes dumping fuel when they landed so they weren't landing full of dangerous jet fuel, special fuel that dissipated harmlessly into the atmosphere.

It just never made sense to me, and it was one of the first times I can remember that I realized that a teacher can simply be *wrong* about something.

I mean, TECHnically they were right. The planes ARE dumping fuel... into their reaction chambers... And if they're doing it right, when they land they'll be fairly empty... because if they've 'landed' while still full, that means that something's gone wrong...

As for Chemtrails... Water vapor is a chemical.

In emergencies planes WILL dump fuel before landing because A) it's easier to land a lighter plane, and B) if you're riding the ragged edge of not crashing into the ground, less fuel in the plane means less flame if you crash and burn.
That doesn't mean that the jettisoned fuel dissipates harmlessly, it's a nasty pollutant, both in the air, and if/when it condenses on the ground.

Ah, still needs 25% more awesomeness.

The training angle does raise the question of how many sonic booms Ponyville's had to endure for the past few days.

Oh, right, Discord. Well, the point still stands in the context of FiM.

Who says she has to practice over Ponyville? There's lots of open terrain to the east or west. Ghastly Gorge might actually be perfect.

Besides, Ponyville already suffers enough catastrophes just by being close to the Everfree. Entirely avoidable noise complaints would not be tolerated for long.

Don't worry about the bugs and their queen.
I made sure they had a nice soft landing.

...Now I'm trying to imagine what changelings would look like under the effects of Poison Joke. Stuck in a form they particularly dislike, perhaps?
Robin Bobcat 18th Mar 2021, 12:20 PM edit delete reply
Worse: changing forms every fifteen seconds.
AmyP 18th Mar 2021, 12:35 PM edit delete reply
Partial changes...

Unless...turning into changelings in the first place was the joke...

They look like the reformed changelings.

I had a second shapeshifter race and had it so they could change shape, but not color. So you could probably tell what they are if you knew about them and that animal didn't have a darkgrey coat, some kind of grey mane, and gold eyes motif (their normal colors), but they could still use it for practical beast forms.
...That would probably be too nice to them, but as ones who are used to shapechanging to infiltrate, they would hate being able to shapechange to anything BUT infiltrators.

Good thing for the happy couple that they can get a sonic rainboom for their in-game fantasy pony wedding. Don't want to think about how much it would cost setting that up for the real thing. :)

Lights and special effects? A decent fireworks crew could probably rig it. Granted, that's not super-cheap.

That's RD for you. AJ might, later, suggest that she could have better put it, "For you, nothing less than the full awesome of the awesomest rainbow-colored horse EVER!"
