    Still don't see how Summer Bronycon 2012 is bigger than Botcon, or most "nerd" conventions in general like Penny Arcade Expo or, naturally, the big ones like SDCC.

    We should start polling all nerd gatherings(before u go all emo, I hit Transformer and comic conventions so I count)

    Attendance vs. daily shower
    Attendance vs. noticeable body odor
    Attendance vs. interaction with real world

    We could have fun with this stuff

    Uh, I did. In fact I did about 5 months ago when it was announced. Thanks for letting everyone else know, though. It was really necessary.

    Twilight conventions have a lot of female fans. Bronycons not so much.

    I met a guy dressed like a pony before(brony), he was built like a tank. I don't understand the fascination, but as a grown man that collects toys I respect it.

    This is the kind of hypocritical bullshit that makes me lose faith in TFW.

    If they have dealers that don't sell anything besides G4 stuff it's dead to me.

    Ugh...pony conventions. Hell, ANY convention at that. There's a reason why I don't go to Botcon, or any other convention other than to buy what I want and get the hell out of there.

    There's a sad, pathetic, seedy underbelly to EVERY FANDOM and they always congregate at cons. That alone is a turn-off for me for ever attending Botcon or Joecon or whatever.
