The scientific origins of the Minotaur - Matt Kaplan · 1:45pm Jul 21st, 2015

Bit brief (like all the TED-Ed talks) but really interesting. Mythology is often seen as one of the softest and least practically important sciences there are, so glad to see that part of anthropology getting its due for once. :twistnerd:

Science Time: Normal is Relative. · 12:55am January 30th

I was on YouTube, watching Jacksepticeye play some Subnautica, when I noticed someone call the game devs lazy for not making male and female creatures for the game and instead choosing to make the lifeforms of Planet 4546B hermaphroditic. This irks me for reasons of being a geek and a dork. I love real science, and I love science fiction. Since a lot of people agree with that guy, It's up to me to educate at least some people on the many means of reproduction used by real creatures found on

Brony Journal:Issue One · 11:32pm July 17th

Myself, Pineta, PsiStarPsi, and FiauraTheTankGirl have been working on this one for awhile now: A scientific-ish journal on My Little Pony! In our first issue, we have articles examining Twilight's chalk board from "It's About Time", a consideration of temporal manipulation in that and "The Cutie Remark", and a consideration on how a Pegasus could fly. Check itg out!

[Non Pony] When Good Music and Good Science Meet · 6:32pm February 8th

Greetings my good ladies and gentlemen, on this thoroughly miserable and rainy Thursday evening.

Presented with little additional commentary, a fine rebuttal to anyone who believes science to be joyless and without soul.

8/26/17: Autocracy and my Opinion of Cryonic Science. · 7:05am Aug 26th, 2017

Okay, so now imagine a future where cryonics is bullshit. That is our reality. Everything I have been taught, everything I have researched, points to cryonics being bullshit.

Anyway, now onto a different topic! Animation of the brain and what I mean by an 'Autocracy'.

Science Festival Fun · 4:26pm Jun 23rd, 2016

This weekend I will be running a Particle Physics themed stall at the Oxfordshire Science Festival, and thus busy trying to grab the attention of any passing civilians in order to enthuse to them about how awesome fundamental physics is. This requires a fair amount of organisation, so I am now in triple-check-the-checklist-to-make-sure-we-didn't-miss-anything-when-we-double-checked-the-checklist mode. To start, we need certain toys

New science writing / pony fiction notebook · 7:24pm Jul 1st, 2016

I just submitted a new work which needs a short explanation. C̶o̶d̶a̶ Codex Equestria: Scientific Pony T̶a̶i̶l̶s̶ Tales is a collection of sub-1000 word shorts in which one or more ponies talk about some scientific topic.

Deep Underground Science · 3:05pm Jul 5th, 2015

This week, I take a break from ponies to tell you about my own adventures. I’ve just returned home from a week in Yorkshire doing science in dark, dusty tunnels 1.1km underground.

Statistics #4: The Robot Revolt · 8:46pm January 10th

Well, it’s not quite statistics, but close enough.

You see, recently, I’ve been trying to train a neural network to write clop.

No, don’t run away, this post is actually quite safe for work, at least, it is the intention that it should be so.

Science Has Either Gone Too Far Or Not Far Enough · 11:20pm Jun 18th, 2015

Yes, this thing is real... kind of. They weren't stupid enough to actually hatch the mutated eggs, so no T-Rex/Raptor/Frog/Human hybrids are coming anytime soon.

Writing Bible for the Admiral Shimmer verse · 12:25am Jul 27th, 2016

The short story Log of the U.N.S. Twilight Sparkle prompts a great many possible stories - centuries of them - that I may never write. So if anybody ever does want to write a story in the Admiral Shimmer verse, here are the facts.

Can You Do That? Can You Explode Twice? · 10:42pm March 7th

Apparently, yes:

A star called iPTF14hls has gone supernova - at least twice.

This has nothing to do with pony but I think it's pretty cool.

Why write science themed pony stories? · 12:08am Dec 20th, 2013

Nice to see a good level of interest in my latest work, Rock Farms and Nuclear Reactors. Please take a look if you haven't already done so. In this story Pinkie Pie teaches Twilight Sparkle some basic nuclear physics. This is my third science themed pony story, following The Art of Rainbow Engineering, and

The Science of Magic (Exclusive Short) · 1:03am Aug 2nd, 2015

Saw the new short and to say the least I quite enjoyed it. It gotten better over the years and it makes me want to see the next one. I liked the science aspect and strangely enough it reminds me of Pages of Harmony[Grimdark] where twilight does a study of how to extract harmony within a bearer.

For once, this has nothing to do with ponies. Instead I am looking to exploit the wonderful Fimfiction tradition of helping each other further our writing ambitions. I want feedback on something else.
