Defiantly the most entertaining presentation thats come out.Kudos to the guy.
Science. And ponies!
This was very good.
Awesome. Kid has balls, love the responses. Funny presentation.>Another one of these!There are others? Do tell.
Best one so far XDHilarious and educational!
Brohoof... for science!
I sure hope he converted a few members of his class to the herd.
Man, this just hit me. I had the same project in my physics class in high school. And it was an awesome enough class that I probably would have had the balls to use MLP. Man, I wish MLP existed back then.We had to:1.) Find a TV show / Movie with physic problems / correctness.2.) Explain why they were wrong (if they were)3.) Fix them
That power point presentation's aesthetics were horrible, however.
Applejack is composed of dark matter. That explains a lot.And so are butterflies!On the Fluttershy one, though, there's a few more assumptions he could have made. First, ponies are about the size of large dogs. Second, Pegasi are likely much lighter than other ponies.Overall, I really enjoyed this presentation. I remember my brother had a similar one years ago (physical impossibilities in animation) that he did on FF7 Advent Children.
Flamingo1986: This kid is my new hero.
Ooh, this was a good one. Though pity he kept turning away from the audience when he had the monitor right in front of him.
i think these things can be fixed with a couple of changes in assumptions.pegasi are obv much later than normal ponies, because, comparing the size of wings to the size of their wings and their flap rate, they clearly need to provide less force than would be otherwise needed. this fixes problems #2 and #3as for no 1- she's RD. she's just that AWESOME.
Posting on FB, way too funny to have less than 9000 views.
Anyone who can do a presentation like this and still manage to keep a straight face is my new hero. This guy is my hero =D
Physics + Ponies = Enjoyable science!This guy nailed it!
I laughed whenever he made his conclusions!
What does he mean by "magic is impossible" ?His math must have gone wrong somewhereMagic=FreindshipFreidship is realtherefore...Magic is real
Aww.. he didn't go into the whole 'Rainbow Dash would have to accelerate at 1000Gs in order to avoid crashing into the ground after catching Rarity and the Wonderbolts' calculation I'd seen before.I do subscribe to the 'Applejack is made of dark matter' theory, however.
Definitely the best presentation so far, this guy didn't seem nervous or embarrassed at all! He really deserved that big round of applause at the end.
I suppose all three could work if you assume pegasi have virtually no mass and inexplicable thrust generation abilities.
This was made of epic and win. One of the best bronies right here you.
This had me in stitches, good show.
That's awesome!That's awesome!That's awesome!That's awesome!But he used weight of a HORSE but not a pony, who obviously smaller (and then lighter). So he get those 265 kilograms filly Fluttershy.
That's it, I will put ponies in my geometry project and let the lols insue...
I want to grow up to be just like you.
In regards to fluttershy's fall, obviously the butterflies were in a "cloud" formation thus enabling her to land safely on them.
I lost my shit at his "Why" slide.
did he think at all about the fact that pegasi can stand on CLOUDS which im sure we all know would be less dense than a swarm of butterflies?
Count me in on the "Pegasi are lighter than other Pony types" bandwagon.Although I did read one theory that posited that what Pegasi really do is what Sci Fi calls "inertial compensation" to do all their flying tricks.Or maybe it's just straight up antigravity given that Rainbow Dash can lift (possibly filled with Dark Matter) Applejack with wingpower (and gripping mouth) alone.
Someone needs to make a fic about Applejack's troublesome times of being made of dark matter.
/Also You can easily assume that Rainboom requires speed witch excises the sonic speed. That will easily explain why we can see Mach Cone before the Rainboom - at that time RD was already on hypersonic speed.
Check out the balls on this guy. I wish I had the guts to come out of the Brony closest. Oh well, at least there's muffins in here.
Blarg. The "made of dark matter" was like nails on a chalkboard. Dark matter is very common in the universe, but a) it's not unusually dense and b) it's weakly interacting, so if Applejack were made of dark matter, she wouldn't have been able to touch the seesaw in the first place.I think what he meant to say was degenerate matter, which is what makes up neutron stars. Ten cubic kilometer of this stuff weighs about as much as Jupiter. A teaspoon weighs about as much as 100,000,000 blue whales.
I kind of wish he mentioned Rainbow Dash's physics defying 1670 G pull out of that dive after he caught Rarity and the Wonderbolts.Kind of makes 11 G's look like small change, no?
Let;s face it. Fluttershy can't have a mass of 275 kilograms in her fillyhood. Just compare her size to bunnies and stuff. 275 can be only if her bones are made of metal or Dark matter (LoL)
Awesome.I did something similar back in high school, though in my case, I used Super Mario 64...
That is one awesome brony !!
It's magic, I aint gotta explain shit. Where are your physics now?
This brony is strong willed. I'm very impressed with his enthusiasm in even considering making such topic. Bravo. He is an inspiration to us all. I salute to him.Great presentation. Still, I always thought of ponies were much lighter than what I expected. I was in the range of 100-200 kilos. On the exception of Pegasi's as they are much needed to be lighter in order to keep themselves in the skies. Hence why Applejack was able to catapult Rainbow Dash off to the distance. Same principles apply for Fluttershy- only she was younger at that time with the Butterfly incident.But dark matter just explains things much easier.
That... was done ridiculously well actually. The best presentation I think, next to the second one, even if it wasn't about the show exactly.
Next time I have a Physics assignment come up, I'm doing this.
I'm totally taking a physics course in the fall, so I might totally be able to do this type of crap! Though it is a lecture course, so I'm not sure how much... presentinging I'll be able to do. Darn college lectures and their nuking of fun with ponies
Though, I think I'd have more fun with thinking of ways to show that ponies obey standard physics :3
Is that an Asus gaming laptop I spy?!?This kid is definitely doin' it right.
He made a fairly big mistake at the very start. He assumed that the physics of the Pony universe were the same as those in our own. Obviously that isn't true. We don't need to change the seasons manually, nor do we need a living god to raise the sun in the morning.
Looks like he's got the same laptop as me :O
are there other ones? link plz
You could have used potential energy, ie mgh, to solve the see saw problem more easily.With the butterfly problem, you SHOULD have use momentum and impulse.It doesn't make a difference though, great job.
@AnonymousActually, Applejack is made up of applematter. While not as dense as degenerate matter it still weighs quite a lot.
RD was flapping her arms and wings...
Take all of my rubles.I don't even know for what, but just take them.ALL OF THEM!
Is this guy like a teacher or something? Is he a student? How old are the students?
The sonic rainboom was probably a result of the friction between whatever it is that allows pegasi to fly (those wings are wayy too small!) and the world's magical field.
This is definitely my favorite brony presentation so far. This guy just wins. I hope we see many more at this level of awesomeness!
@AnonymousFriendship is a construct and cannot be proved to be real .: Magic cannot be proved real. Your argument is false.
Water, fire, air, dirt... fucking ponies, how do they work?
One could assume that the 'cloud of butterflies' that caught Fluttershy was close enough to fit the specifications of whatever passive magical effect allows pegasi to walk on clouds.
So i have a Biology Presentation next week?...I know what i must do!
This was amazing, but there is one thing that bugs me.Back when I was in school, if I looked at my slides that much, or even used quoted them exactly, i would get a lower grade.Other than that, beautiful.
this is actually pretty cool. best one yet. he didnt put down any ponies. he showed enough to maybe get people curious about checking it out, kinda like a teaser, and he had a cool physics. good job brony.
I always figured that Pegasi had hollow bones like birds do. That might explain Rainbow Dash's angle on the see-saw and go a bit towards how the butterflies could catch Futtershy. The Sonic Rainboom... not so much.
I linked this to my old physics teacher:"The video was great. Thanks for sharing. I'll probably share it with my classes."If the guy who made the presentation ever reads this, I'd say that's a decent stamp of approval.
That is epic win.That guy has guts to do that.
That was awesome, the best Brony presentation so far. I wish I had this kind of physics project when I was in school. The reactions from his class mates was great, hopefully he has inspired some of them to check out the show.Maybe he was limited by time but he could have also talked about the impossibilities of teleporting.
Saw it, Loved it. These are Always the Best kind of Presentations. :D
@BagOfChipsI know him. I will tell him for you.
@AnonymousHe is a student. Senior.
nice, also by lookin for more info i found this site which looks pretty kewl
Physics is now 20% cooler
This was so awesome i cried i laughed so hard! XD
