Happy New Year and New Decade, everyone. Here's hoping it'll be one to remember for all the right reasons. Expect a new chapter of Such Sweet Lunacy soon—now, in fact—and more ideas to come once I look back over my notes. :derpytongue2:

And in the meantime, friendly reminder that Viva Reverie completed the animated Brony Polka a few days ago. It's good, go check it out.

It's so good!

Happy New Year/Decade to you too!

Happy New Year(s) to you, too! And yes, the animation is lovely.

I was considerably wowed by the polka animation. Such an amazing tribute :)

Struggling against:

My inner Mudbriar when it comes to this being the first year of the new decade, but still, I reflect all well wishes back in your direction!

Woooo! That Brony Polka animation was so good. :pinkiehappy: :pinkiehappy: :pinkiehappy:

The new decade doesn't start until 2021. This is the last year of the old decade.

I respectfully present the Munroe Argument as my stance and justification thereof.

Forget killing Hitler; should I ever come into possession of a time machine, I am by-Jingo making sure that a year zero is inserted in the proper place to clear this mess right up.

If you were truly concerned with things making sense, you'd quickly realize that this wouldn't work. Best case scenario, you're prevented through what would look to be simple bad luck. Worst case scenario, the universe is retroactively destroyed. The scenario where it actually works the way you want it to is the least sensible one, because going back in time to do something means you're doing it in the past and therefore from the perspective of right now have already done it. Or failed, in the case of killing Hitler and similar things people say they'd do with time travel. (Incidentally, killing Hitler at the wrong time can potentially result in a partial victory for the Nazis by putting someone less greedy in charge of the remainder of the war. Even the flyby at the 1936 Olympic Games that people are proposing when they say they'll kill Hitler would have some seriously detrimental knock-on effects and probably not be a permanent prevention of WW2. The area was simply too much of a powder keg of resentment not to explode at some point.)

That's the reason:

I've never been able to read xkcd. Pop. culture references are every bit as lost on me as science references... :twilightblush:
