Great message for children: A bully only has the power that YOU allow them to have.


Also, does Scootaloo live in an abandoned house or a really small orphanage?


Assuming, she's (as many seem to believe) that she's an orphan?

I actually think that Snowflake might be her dad. It would be a pretty easy explanation for why her wings are underdeveloped, as well as how they roped him into their training.

Applejack proved that it doesn't matter if you're an orphan as long as you have family. Scootaloo and the CMC will eventually prove that it doesn't even matter if you have family, as long as you are family.

I'm really starting to wonder exactly why it is that Silver Spoon bothers hanging out with Diamond Tiara. I mean, despite the stereotype of the popular girls being bullies, I've seen basically no indicator that anyone besides Silver bothers to befriend Diamond. I honestly think they might be the only friends the other has.

I wouldn't be terribly surprised if the root of the bullying is the fact that the Crusaders each have two good friends, whereas Tiara and Silver only have each other, and that seems more out of mutual disdain for others than any great liking of each other.

What remains most clear is that Cheerilee is really not a very good teacher, vis-a-vis noticing incredibly obvious bullying behavior (though that's true of just about every teacher character in every medium)

/clearly thinking too much about the social dynamics of fictional equine children
//seriously though, what the hell are Diamond Tiara's and Silver Spoon's talents? I honestly want to know how the hell those cutie marks came around.

I'm okay with this. The only time we ever actually see Filthy Rich in the show, he'ss telling Diamond Tiara to get with the program for the Zap Apple Jam, of which he got a cut, presumably for bankrolling the Apples' farm back in the day. Tiara's the self-entitled one, and Spoon's the sociopath. Filthy's OK by me.

The meta-lesson, and it'll probably be lost on the core demographic, but it shouldn't be lost on the adults, is the riff on Andrew Carnegie's notion that it's only but three generations from shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves.

(To be pedantic, it's four generations in the show: Stinkin' Rich is Filthy Rich's grandfather, not father.) Stinkin' Rich started the business of reselling the jam, we don't know what happened in the next generation, Filthy Rich is generation three, and still comes back to collect a hundred jars of jam because that's what the contract stipulated. Even though he could buy the farm outright for pocket change, he's a pony of his word. It'll be Diamond Tiara, who grew up feeling entitled to wealth without understanding where it comes from, will be the one who ruins whatever the family business is.

I wouldn't think Filthy gets those hundred jars of Zap Apple Jam for nothing, or just because a contract states he has to. I'd bet he still is able to turn a tidy profit on it. Sell it out of season to tourists or something. And I forget whether he's just a Ponyville mogul or an Equestria mogul, but if his financial empire covers all of Equestria, he probably exports that jam to other regions at a hefty markup.

However, you're right that he still understands how the business works and isn't afraid of the work, but Diamond Tiara will wind up being the Brian France/Stephanie McMahon that ruins everything.

Yeah, we're basically in agreement here. He's not taking the hundred jars because he feels obliged to eat a loss on it, nor is he doing so despite the fact that it's probably not worth his time to do so. The way I see it (having reviewed the scene), he's taking only a hundred jars (I'm assuming he could buy the farm) because he's obliged to take no more than 100 jars. Whether he makes a few bits by reselling them profit, whether those bits even show up on his balance sheet due to rounding error, whether he just hands them out to his friends, or even if he just likes to have zap apple jam for breakfast every day of the year doesn't matter. He's got bigger business deals to work on, but he never forgets to make good on a contract, even if neither he nor the Apples need it anymore.

As for Diamond Tiara, I always thought of her as Paris HIlton: inheritor of wealth, but no useful talent (apart from the fact that both here and in Ponyville, wearing a tiara and being born with a silver spoon in one's mouth does qualify as a life calling...) Conrad Hilton founds the Hilton hotel chain in 1919. His son, Barron Hilton, builds the business and takes over in 1966. (In the human world, the point is moot; the Hilton hotel and Harrah's casino chain were sold and the family's wealth is protected by transferring most of it to a charitable trust, and there are 13 other grandchildren.) But among Barron's 15 granddaughters (and there's the skipped generation!) were Paris and Nicky Hilton, who are, to put it bluntly, not known for their business acumen.

See, I'd wager Filthy thought of buying the farm, but realized that kicking the beloved old lady and her family out of the grand old homestead would be bad for PR. Plus, the Smiths' various apple products are second to none, and that crazy old coot is the only one who knows how to make that jam correctly, especially since the next generation of jam makers has just begun their training.

I'd also bet Filthy took note of how the Flim Flam Brothers were received when they took over Sweet Apple Acres.

I'm running a little low on Mannheim Steamroller right now, how 'bout some Trans-Siberian Orchestra "Wizards in Winter" (and condensation of the Season 1 and Season 2 premieres down to three minutes) instead for Hearth's Warming Eve?

I believe it is, although I don't know if they still have any for sale. I vaguely recalled seeing something like this a few months ago and promptly forgot about it apart from bookmarking the image, and you made me look again.

Disclaimer: I'm neither the seller nor a customer (but I might buy one myself now that I've found it again, because also DO WANT.) I googled and found several vendors who will do custom minting in precious metals, and the price is pretty cheap; you pay a flat rate for die setup, and for a short run it works out to a few bucks above the spot price. With silver trading at $20/oz, the asking price is reasonable for custom-minted silver.

did you remember to double-check next week's checklist to make sure you have time to check everything off this week's checklist?

/also, you're farking awesome...

Check, and thanks! Even Ms. Harshwhinny would approve your usage of the professional's euphemism for "has had too much cider tonight."

Strolpol: //seriously though, what the hell are Diamond Tiara's and Silver Spoon's talents? I honestly want to know how the hell those cutie marks came around.

Silver Spoon hangs around because she's a social climber and because Diamond Tiara's dad is (quite literally) Filthy Rich.

So, Diamond Tiara is really a midget Sarah Palin, right?
