Remembering that Time Some Dude in China Said he was Jesus' Brother · 7:26pm May 15th, 2022

The Taiping Rebellion was interesting to say the least. A man by the name Hong Xiuquan claimed to be the brother of Jesus Christ and started a massive rebellion against the Qing dynasty that ruled China. Hong established the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom and waged war against the Qing, seeking to destroy the Qing and enact major social reforms. The rebellion grew to be the bloodiest in human history and lasted from 1850 to 1864. In the end, the Qing took a decisive victory. After the war the

A curious question... · 3:20am Mar 8th, 2020

If anyone here is Japanese, or has been to Japan and is knowledgeable on the subject, how does the common Japanese see the struggle between Tokugawa and Ishida? The one shown in the two videos below.

It seems to me like Tokugawa unjustly seized power from the Toyotomis, and that Ishida was trying to defend the right of the boy heir to be shogun, but there is probably a lot more to the story that I'm missing.

Monsters · 3:05am Aug 8th, 2015

When I started writing the interaction between Nightmare Moon and her Nemesis, I originally planned for Nightmare to reveal her origins. However. . . I changed my mind for a few reasons:

1. If I used my own favored explanation for where Celestia and Luna came from, it would actually be a bit of a spoiler for a couple of other stories -- currently on hiatus but I do plan to get back to them.

Quick Overview of Pegasus History in North Amareica · 7:47am Feb 21st, 2016

I have the following stages outlined.

(1) Raiding: Pegasi raid the Earth Ponies for food and other moveable goods. At this point, the Pegasi regard the other Kinds as subponies. Here the only influence would come from slaves, and for physical reasons the Pegasi could only use Earth Pony slaves in their ground settlements (probably located in places accessible only by flight).

Tryptophan's Pilgrim · 12:22pm Nov 26th, 2015

Once upon a time in England, there was a religious sect known as the Puritans, whose tenets were basically opposed to people enjoying themselves. Unsurprisingly, no one liked them, so they decided to escape religious persecution by traveling to the promising New World, where they could be free to persecute other religions.

Happy Birthday, Internet!

On October 29, 1969, UCLA’s Network Measurement Center, Stanford Research Institute (SRI), University of California-Santa Barbara, and University of Utah mounted the first 4 nodes of the ARPANET. The first successful message was sent by UCLA student programmer Charley Kline, at 10:30 pm on 29 October 1969, from Boelter Hall 3420.

That was 50 years, 1 hour, and 30 minutes ago.

Once upon a time at a land forsaken by Celestia · 6:40am Mar 3rd, 2020

Been gathering lots of nostalgia lately to fuel my musical compositions. I know, nopony knows who I am.
I just posted a pony song this skip day because it's a special day.
In my nostalgia quest, I wandered in an old forum I was an admin along with some other beaner friends of mine. Yeah, I'm mexican too.
And then... I saw this and screencapped this!!

New Year, New History Fact · 3:01pm January 16th

Did you know that Dr. Von Braun had designed a manned mission to Mars as early as 1952? From what I understand the math still adds up, the mission would've worked. It would've been ridiculously expensive and take way too long to construct in orbit but it would've worked... a lot better than NASA's supposed planned Mars mission schedule.
