Bitter Ex-Bronies.

They still want to hang around the pony sites and their brony friends, yet they are an absolute jerk on how "Horrible" the show is and how much they hate the show.
Seriously, people... If you're in a brony site don't go bashing the show pointlessly, just keep your loud, annoying mean opinion to yourself.

People have no consideration anymore.

You know what really bugs me?
People acting like the melody and harmony is the only important part of a song.

They think drums and the beat can just be some beat kick repeating "Beat, Kick, Beat, Kick, Beat, Kick, Beat-Beat, Kick!".
A good song you should be able to recognize the song instantly by the beat alone, same goes for the bass guitar and everything else.

A truly good song should be 100% iconic, you should be able to hear any part and instantly knock what song it's from.
I get it, not everyone can be a world changing musician, but still....

I was hired as the assistant sound designer for two small shows, and ran troubleshooting while our main sound designer was out on vacation last week.  That was bad enough.  But tonight, BOTH Stage managers call me up asking questions about the light board...which was NOT my department.  Yes, I work lights often, but that does not immediately mean I can diagnose, by phone, what is going wrong with a system I haven't messed around with, especially when your lights board is an emulated piece of software rather than a physical unit that I AM familiar working on.
I had a bad enough time last week with the stress of one of the directors, I was looking forward to spending this weekend not thinking about these shows.  Why do they insist on dragging me back kicking and screaming?

I hate the overuse of the adage "Life isn't fair". In response to completely legitimate complains. That saying serves little purpose other than to enrage its recipients. I consider it to be little more than a trollish brush-off, akin to "You mad, bro?"

I obviously already know that life isn't fair if I'm complaining about it being unfair. If something isn't fair then don't give me a pointless adage, FREAKING MAKE IT FAIR!

I'm not unrealistic, I don't expect everything to be 100% equitable all the time, but I DO expect the powers that be to at least make an honest effort to make things more equitable when it's within their power to do so, I hardly think that's an unreasonable request.

Hue, if you ask me it can depend on what they claim isn't fair that could be annoying or more specifically, complaining about things that didnt go in their favor cursing anything otherwise.  :]

Something that actually has been bothering me more and more of late is how often the limit of light speed is disregarded by Sci-fi writers. They can and will happily hand over lots of explanations about faster then light travel, but they just about never explain, or are simply unaware, how the can send over information across star systems or see whats happening on the far side of solar system in real time. Im afraid hard sci-fi has ruined a decent amount of sci-fi for me.

Midnight, was it air force, army or navy pt test?

It's my understanding that apparent faster-than-light travel is theoretically possible due to the flexibility of space. Your ship is not actually traveling through space that fast, but that you are actually traveling in a 'tunnel' or 'bubble' of warped space. Within said bubble you are not traveling anywhere close to the speed of light ('absolute' light speed), but the combination of forward momentum and space being warped toward the ship pushes the apparent travel speed above the speed of light. All very theoretical, but it doesn't violate general relativity.

Yup, I understand all of that for traveling faster then light speed. Its just FTL sensors and communications that bother me. That and the majority of sci-fi sensors are all active sensors that function like some futuristic space radar, and radar is pretty useless because it has to bounce off something then come back, doubling the amount of time for information to reach you then if you just looked out a window.

That's actually what baffled me more than anything about Elite Dangerous. With a top-level scanner you can't scan every object in a star system in a few seconds. RF current travels at exactly light speed (since they are essentially the same thing), so it should take hours to scan an entire star system, unless the radar current somehow utilizes the FSD.

Also, plotting course for a star 10s of light years away is a more subtle oddity. You plot course for right where you see the star, which is where it was 17 years ago, not where it is now. Plotting course for where a star appears to be should spit you out in the middle of nowhere, since the star is long gone.

Curious I dare say, curious...


Come to think if it, why do we even call it the speed of light? Visible light is a relatively tiny frequency range on the electromagnetic spectrum, what makes light so special, eh? Why is it not called the speed of ECM? Discriminatory name, I tell you.

After reading this i remembered another thing that really ticks me off a lot IRL. Whenever there's a documentary or reports on planets around other stars they almost always say "There is." When in fact most of the data of the planets being reported on are millions, if not billions of years old. An entire civilization could evolve and die in that time span.

Whelp, won't be able to draw for a little bit.  half my pen tablet was taken, along with pretty much everything I used to draw traditionally. :/
Every story has an ending, none of which composed by the main character.

Elite: Dangerous actually bothers with realistic limitations? Colour me interested.

On a somewhat dis-similar note, that's also something I note is lacking in Equestria. When Celestia moves the sun, it should take somewhere between 7 and 8 minuets for the sun to appear as if its moving. I'm fine with the way it appears Luna is moving the moon, the moon is only a couple light seconds away.

On a similar note, all those fanfictions where Celestia and Luna are taken out of the picture or otherwise lose control of the sun and moon, but the world still ends up fine.  Its a classic three body problem, there is no telling what would happen, except that it would probably end up very poorly for Equestria.
