Week 317 Wrap Up

Hey, watch this! I'm gonna do a double loop-de-loop into a blazing backflip, then shift into a meteor dive from which I will land on top of this tiny crystal goblet without so much as chipping it. And I will do it all without wings! How am I going to pull this off, you might ask? Well...

I'm not. It's extremely difficult to pull off such aerial acrobatics when one does have wings. For the wingless, like myself, it's basically impossible. But I did get your attention, didn't I. And that is the point of showboating: to get as much attention as possible. But at least I'm not doing this merely to stroke my own ego, as is often the case with showboaters. Rather, I'm doing this to garner attention for this week's Gallery. For within these hallowed halls reside an exhibit showcasing multiple other forms of showboating, as that is indeed the theme for this week. So allow me to show you to the entrance, so that you may experience this grand spectacle.

Week 316 Wrap Up

Hello, all you bleep-ing ponies out there! It's such a lovely bleep-ing day today, am I right? The bleep-ing sun is shining, there's none of that fluffy white bleep blocking the sunlight with their bleep-ing rain, and all the pony bleep-es and bleep-s are out and about, enjoying this bleep fine weather!

Oh, what was that? "Why am I swearing so much?" Oh, well this week's theme was A Cursing Pony, and I'm just... wait what? "Cursed Pony"?

Err, oops. Seems I was actually showing off the Misguided Pony part of the theme. Without actually intending to. That would explain all the dirty looks. So, umm... how about you all just go ahead and check out our gallery while I, err... demonstrate the classic Brave Sir Robin strategy. Gottagobye!

Week 315 Wrap Up

Heisting is a fine art. Any fool can run into a business guns-blazing and grab whatever's in the register, but that'll just result in the police running in after you with their own weapons at the ready. Nopony likes a murderer, and the authorities are relentless in the pursuit of such killers. As such, a true heister does things nice and quiet. First, get as much info as you can. Case the joint, if possible. Figure out where the valuables are kept, and what they're worth. Determine the patrol routes of any guards, and the presence of other security measures. We heisters aren't movie stars; getting caught on camera is a really bad thing. Then, once you have your plan all laid out, it's time to act. Sneak in, avoid security, grab the best stuff, and get back out with none the wiser!

And one last piece of advice for you all, one that you'll likely not want to hear. Should the police succeed in catching up to you, it is time to surrender. Cops are well armed, well trained, and work in teams. Indeed, for each cop you see, there's another hidden nearby; on a rooftop, behind a nearby vehicle, or coming in through the back of the building. 'Tis true that no heister likes getting caught, but just remember: It's far easier to escape a jail than to escape a grave.

But enough of the doom and gloom stuff. Instead, let's see some true heisters in action. The evidence is found below. Just don't tell anypony with a badge what you saw here.

Week 314 Wrap Up

Big money, no Whammies, big money, no Whammies... Stop!

Aw dangit, I got a Whammy. That's the problem with gambling: It's never a sure thing. It's just a roll of the dice; sometimes proverbially, sometimes literally. Fortunately, this isn't the only way to earn an income. One can simply get a job, for instance. And while working for a living may not have that massive potential payoff of a lucky gambling streak, it does provide income much more consistently.

These and other ways of gaining an income have been the theme of this week, and it's time to see what everyone has come up with along these lines. Check them out below:
