Everyone knows that crystal meth is the drug of choice for ponies.

We had an entire 2-parter episode dedicated to it at the start of this season.

On-topic question from somebody who has only seen one episode before, and it was about Applejack becoming obsessed with collecting her apples, or something: Pegusi and Unicorns co-exist in the The My Little Pony universe, as I understand it. And as I further understand, both species hold a distinct advantage over unspecialised ponies. Do these species have any clear weaknesses (heat dissipation, easily fatigued, energy requirements, etc.) to compensate, or are the poor unspecialised ponies doomed to extinction, like the poor doomed Neanderthals? Do they even share a common biological link with the unspecialised ponies or is it merely convergent evolution? Furthermore, are there any known examples of Pegasi/Unicorn hybrids in this universe?

Though it isn't explicitedly stated in the show (though it is referenced in "Hearth's Warming Eve", each sub-species of pony has their own unique ability. Unicorns have magic powers, but typically limited to levitation. Pegasi can fly (duh) and can walk on clouds. And normal ponies, earth ponies as named in the show, possess a more subtle form of magic. Earth ponies have a natural connection to the land and all its living things. They cultivate crops better, they have a better understanding of other critters (Fluttershy was originally supposed to be an earth pony), and they seem to have a real knack at cooking.

The poll is asking which pony is your poniest pony!

Which basically means which pony would you prefer to let ingest (large quantities of) cocaine laying (preferably in neatly bundled rows) across your thigh(s) through their pony nasal cavities.

Yeah, without earth ponies, pegasi and unicorns starve to death.

This is basically enshrined as canon in the episode "Hearth's Warming Eve" where each race has an ultimate veto card they can play:

Unicorns are required to raise the sun, pegasi are required to control the weather, earth ponies are needed to grow the food due to their higher physical strength, unicorns and pegasi are too weak for manual labour.

In a post-Princess Celestia world (she is an Alicorn, the unicorn/pegasus hybrid you were wondering about), the unicorns no longer raise the sun, but are still useful since a lot of pony technology (such as their healthcare and a lot of their machinery) runs on magic.

Another interesting thing to note is that as a culture they have almost nothing in the way of an organized military, even the wonderbolts who are supposed to handle disasters aren't much use. Their efforts are focused more on medicine, where they have better technology than modern humans, broken bones take only 3 days to heal completely.

Have you not learnt my method of getting conversations started in a thread? Post a pic and see what follows. At least, it's very effective in the shipping and food threads. Ironically it sparked a response from you  tongue wink

If pictures are not what you want in here, I can stick them in spoiler tags.

I think other people have commented on this, but I would like to perhaps add to this.
Winter Wrap Up showcases Earth Pony and Pegasus doing things that perhaps the other cannot. Pegasus is rather obvious with their flying and weather controlling, but as was shown in the episode, Twilight stuffed up trying to help doing things earth pony way because she's used to doing things with magic or making Spike do them. Either way, just looking at pictures it should have been obvious of at least the area she might have had some success in.

I don't think Pegasi are greater than earth ponies. Even RD the fastest (known) in equestria is actually matched in speed by Pinkie Pie. As for strength, RD maybe be able to best AJ in an arm wrestling competition, but can't stop the runaway cart like AJ can. 'Best flier' may go to RD but 'best athlete'...

Also to say unicorns and pegasi are fragile is maybe not true. Twilight had a whole lot of stuff dropped on her in Feeling Pinkie Keen and Rainbow Dash has had multiple crashes, only once has she broken a bone in Read it and Weep.

The poll is calling for a 'Vinyl Scratch' option  shifty

Yes, that's one of several  topics of conversation I've seen:

1) Twilight *may* become an Alicorn - or at least officially a Princess.
2) Ponies don't have bathrooms and outhouses, they poop on the ground and use it as fertiliser.*

* Lauren Faust twittered it - which is the primary source of FiM gospel.

But somewhat more importantly, in my opinion:

3) Hasbro has started using ContentID stuff on YouTube which means quite a few mlp videos will start disappearing. This is bad news for me because the episodes uploaded on YouTube are the only place I get to watch them and also the system has blocked Friendship is Witchcraft (just in America, for now) and may well delete them outright. They'll probably get away with restarting on a different website or something, but it's disappointing all the same. hmpf

I just assumed that Twilight is some sort of Chosen One, and that she is needed to defeat a Pony Voldemort Sauron Palpatine of some sort.  I'm guessing the other five have some role to play as the Element bearers, but Magic is supposed to be the most powerful Element of all and rules over the other three.  Basically, Twilight is the Link and the Zelda in one to the other pony Sages.

Maybe Spike is the real hero, and it is his mission to overturn the matriarchal Equestria and enslave all marekind, with the help of the Elements of Misogyny, held by Braeburn, Big Mac, Shining Armour, Donut Joe, Dr Whooves and Soarin'.   Oh and Caramel too.

I don't know whether a "Coronation" would befit a newborn member of the royal family, but Skyla's appearance into the world (well, the show proper I should say) would make a sound plot-point for an episode (where's the conflict though?)

The whole merchandise front does seem to be an den of controversy for bronies - what with pink Celestia, Skyla to begin with (suspiciously like Sweetie Belle on the box) and it's also arguably the greatest source for the Twilight Alicorn. Rabid speculation on talk of Twilight "being ready for the next stage" and "realises her destiny" made people wonder what if, but it was a seemingly insignificant and quite possibly erroneous depiction of Twilight with wings in a sticker book of all things that has virtually confirmed some people's worst fears it seems...

One suggestion I have seen mentioned is the idea that Twilight is made a Princess and/or Alicorn for the episode but eventually decides to give it up to remain with her friends. Seems fine to me - though I can't help but think that if Celestia has been grooming her for a position of tremendous power and responsibility over the realm, Twilight suddenly saying "nah, I'd rather remain a small-town librarian" may not be case of "oh well, not to worry then". tongue

I doubt those wings are real.  She looks like she's from the Equestria equivelant of Toddlers and Tiaras.  Not included: Broken Dreams, the morbidly obese pageant mom pony who alternates from screaming and harshly berating her offspring, to and standing up and cheering for Princess Skyla from the audience (Princess Skyla is her first name.)

First time I saw that, I read it as "Princess Sylar."

One suggestion I have seen mentioned is the idea that Twilight is made a Princess and/or Alicorn for the episode but eventually decides to give it up to remain with her friends.

Twilight may already be a princess (or entitled to become one), by virtue of being a member of the royal family. What I think is going to happen is that when Cadance is crowned as leader of the Crystal Empire, the magic involved is going to accidentally manifest in Twilight, resulting in a temporary physical transformation. Then shenanigans will ensue.

In all honesty that Skyla plush toy looks like they're just trying to get rid of the leftover G3.5 toys they still have.



Notice the similar stars in the eyes. Notice how that is also not Scootaloo at all for she has no scooter and is not radical.

PS: I grew up on G2 where the ponies probably looked more like horses than any other incarnation.

PPS: I tried to add a picture of a very weird G3.5 Cheerliee but I messed it up so here's an interesting evolution of Applejack toys from G1-G4.

Unicorns are the ruling caste, pegasi are a kind of winged priest/seer/scholar class, and the "earth" ponies (comprising the majority) do all of the thankless drudge work to support their decadence? And Apricorns are a decadent living embodiment of deityhood, like the officers of mystery cults in times of old? I see.

Favourite line from today's episode:

In response to Fluttershy asking 'Do you all think I'm a silly gullible fool?' the responses are non-commital mumbles except for Rarity's 'Oh, only in the sense of being silly and gullible.'

Ah, classic "Were you insulted when I insulted your hair?" Rarity.   big grin

Sort of, in the Before-Celestia world. (B. C.?) Nowadays, it would be more accurate to say unicorns are the ineffective bureaucratic caste, thinking they hold power due to obsolete notions of power and status; that pegasi are self-fancied proud warriors with nothing left but the ancient victories of their ancestors; that earth ponies are the only sensible individuals, who neither have their heads in the clouds nor special powers to grant them any illusions about themselves; and that alicorns do the brunt work of actually getting useful stuff accomplished though the sheer force of being instruments of the divine.

I suppose it's like a variation of the whole Victorian-era schoolmarm thing. The more you hide, the more kinky it gets, especially if you're "hiding" things in a way that doesn't really hide anything at all. 1880s fashion was the height of that sort of thing.

I'm not entirely sure what you're insinuating. Are you, Xanfor, claiming that Rarity is best pony, and Applejack is not worthy of such a title? Or is Archonix forwarding the idea that Rarity is best pony next to Applejack?

Also, Archonix, eww.

I was pretty much in agreeance with m0le, but Xanfor's insight is probably more accurate.

I remember watching in the abridged series (fan-made, of course) that Rarity was trying to convince Twilight to give her the ticket to the Grand Galloping Gala by arguing that as they are both of the superior sub-species, they both deserve the best.

I don't like the portrayal of pegasi being "rough-and-tumble". Maybe its because earth ponies practically roll around in the dirt, or maybe its my partiality to things with wings.
