To be fair there isn't much else to do in Nebraska, so why not?
 
2013-03-19 09:09:37 AM
In other news.  Horse rape rates in Nebraska have skyrocketed.

I've driven across the country a couple of times, and Nebraska is easily the worst state in the Union*. There is no reason it should exist.

I was going to say... As someone who is originally from Kansas, I would like to say that state should be nuked from orbit. Truly a terrible place with no value.

According to my Brony friend, the actual origin of the word comes from the fact that the male fandom "originated" on 4chan's /b/. /b/ + pony = brony. Everyone else just assumed it was a portmanteau of "bro" and "pony", so that's what it evolved into.

I.....I'm sort of ashamed that I know this.

That was my thought too.

And I've driven through Nebraska quite a bit. It's a long haul, but I don't really find it boring. It's better than looking at concrete and glass or cookie-cutter houses. I live in Illinois and I find it to be far worse to drive through. The 65 mph speed limit only rubs salt in the wound.

driving through southern illinois is like a death sentence. and, yes, the speed limit is the worst part. HOWEVER, i did drive through it once after a fresh snow, and it was beautiful. weird, huh.

Growing up, my father would pile everyone in the car and we'd drive down to Metropolis/Cairo at least twice a year.  I don't know why.  Coming from Chicago, which is probably 90 minutes from the Wisconsin border, that was one long-ass farking drive.  Once you get south of Springfield, there ain't shiat for hundreds of miles.  One of the schools I applied to for college was in Carbondale, and when I realized how far away from civilization I'd be, I re-thought that.

Nebraska is especially a great place to be a bronie since last year a judge overturned a state law forbidding sex offenders from using social media sites.

How... Freudian.  You think brony and you reflexively associate the term with sex crimes.

So, being a kind of open minded guy, and having a daughter who is 11 (leaving the age demographic, but...), I decided to try an experiment.  I watched about 3 episodes of the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (the first three, I think).  I'm a huge cartoon fan (Adult Swim, Archer, FG, Futurama, etc.), but I have to say "I don't get it."  I mean, it was a pleasant, inoffensive cartoon, but it also didn't have any hook that I could see that would draw (adult) people in.  My daughter was, in word, bored.  Can someone explain the attraction to me?  Did I miss some subtle piece of culture commentary?  Or is it just a "wow, we're edgy, we like a kid's show..." thing?  (And if so, why that particular show and not something else...)

They include a LOT of references to other television shows that people around the right age to be the parents of their main demographic would get. Is it really their fault you don't understand inside jokes?

I'm going to tell you what I tell everyone who says this, which is most people: you absolutely cannot judge Nebraska by driving across it. I-80 was built following the route of the Oregon Trail through the state, which followed the Platte River Valley because it was the easiest route. It's easy because it is flat and featureless. You could not plan a more boring route across the state if you tried to. Granted, the topography in the rest of the state isn't exactly the Rocky Mountains, but if you get away from the interstate, especially up north in the panhandle, there's a lot more topography than you'll see in e.g. Iowa.

I may not be the best defender. While I do defend Bronies, even I think they're weird. Of course, I just logically extend that to sports fans and geeks of all types.

I look at it like this: I have an 8 year old, 6 year old and a 21 month old. I have alot of time to be stuck watching their shows (at least in the background). I also am a big believer in watching the shows your kids are watching first (or at least WITH them). So I will proactively try to find things I like about these shows so I can put up with them.

The show is nice. It's not sickeningly sweet or anything. It teaches kids to be nice and to help their friends. That's it. There are a few funny lines, there are a few pop culture references (there's a full on big lebowski, bowling alley and all, reference) and the meme's on the internet are HILARIOUS.

Seriously, they use each other as gatling guns if needed.

I have lived on both coasts and in between. Lived in Colorado for years, too, where folks are trained to hate Nebraska. Moved to Nebraska six years ago and I love it. Some of the nicest, most genuine people I have ever known. Are there awful people here? Yep. But not in any greater proportion than you will find in California, Georgia, North Carolina, Texas or Colorado. I am surprised about the Bronies here, though. Makes me like the place more.
