I figured out why we never seen Applejack's parents in the show.  They've actually been there the whole time.

You see, Granny Smith is really Big Macintosh's mother.  The two of them had a little redneck fun one night, and Applejack was born.

Since Applejack is Big Mac's daughter and Big Mac is Granny Smith's son, that would make Granny Smith Applejack's grandmother.  And because they share the same mother, Big Mac and Applejack are also brother and sister.

It's probably best that you don't ask about Apple Bloom's relationship.

LiveJournal really messed up the gallery.  It's a royal pain in the ass to upload and post images now.  Clicky on any of these to see the full image.

Storms in the distance, and the water tower that was recently erected nearby.

I wish this bike helmet came in my size.

A couple toads I saw in a well head while looking at houses with a friend.

This show is boring!

Cool story, bro.


Something every Skyrim fan should have.

This tastes like ass.

Mmmmm...  Hooves....

I ordered a pork tenderloin sandwich from a local diner.  This is what I got.

A recent Wii Everybody Votes Channel poll asked whether people eat bananas by peeling them a little at a time, or all at once.

Me:  Who peels a banana all at once?  If you do that, it loses its structural integrity!
My SO:  That was the geekiest thing I've ever heard.

Simply unique, indeed.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.  At least at Costco.

You're hired!  You're fired!

U-turn fail.  It might not be immediately obvious, but the front of the trailer is sitting on the roadway.

Pony pulls the wagon or it gets the hose again!

I had to explain to my roommate why it was absurd that a pegasus pony would be pulling a wagon.  I've succumbed to the brony side.

When this washing machine gets spinning at full speed, it reminds me of that spinning ring machine from the movie Contact.

That must be why my socks keep disappearing.  They're passing through a wormhole and ending up on a planet orbiting Vega.

I am Adam, Prince of Eternia, and defender of the secrets of Castle Greyskull.  This is Cringer, my "fearless" friend.  Fabulous secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said, "By the Power of Greyskull!"

Psst.  Hey buddy.  Here.  This is a magic sword.

Magic sword?  Riiiiight....

Yeah, all you have to do is hold it over your head and yell "By the Power of Greyskull."

....  Riiiight...

The UN has announced they are building a satellite powered by feces.

Houston, this is Shitstar 1.  My God, it stinks up here!

Ever wonder what the Chipmunks sounded like when they hit puberty?

While screwing around with this song I noticed that the second and fourth lines of the chorus actually end with "walla walla bang bang", not "bing bang"

I was reading about a new technology called Wi-Di (pronounced why-die, short for Wireless Display).  It will allow you to connect a computer to a TV or monitor without needing to bother with cables.

This technology is nothing new.  Back in the 60s, you could get a portable, wireless color display.  Only back then, they were called Ti-Di.

Years ago, Electrolux marketed their vacuum cleaners with the phrase "Nothing sucks like an Electrolux."

Now, their slogan is "Thinking of you."

I have a set of LOLcat poetry magnets on my file cabinet.  I came in one day and found my SO had done this:

I think I've been playing too much Animal Crossing.  I was out walking today and saw a star-shaped mark in the gravel driveway.  My first thought was, "Oooh, a fossil!"

I keep seeing people posting pictures comparing McCain to Colonel Tigh and Palin to President Roslin from Battlestar Galactica, so I offer my own comparison:

So do we want to vote for a Cylon or a Goa'uld?

Weird error I got last night just before my computer froze up.

Red Bull gives you wheels?

It's a Subaru WRX GTR STI!

I find it amusing that these two business are located near each other.

Look boss, da train! Da train!

I got to drive on an original piece of the Lincoln Highway today. It's so incredibly narrow, smaller than the side streets in most towns. In fact, to make it usable to today's vehicles, they've had to add a narrow concrete strip along the edges to widen it an additional foot or so. Even with that, it's barely wide enough for two cars to pass each other. It's also paved with brick; it was a jarring ride in my Caprice, I can only imagine what it would have been like in a rickety old Model T. There were no other cars on the road, and it's in a pretty isolated area, so you could get a bit of a feel for what this must have been like nearly 100 years ago.

If you're in Omaha, you can find this stretch of ancient highway by exiting W. Dodge (US-6) at 180th and head north about 3/4 mile.
