PostSubject: Forever alone   Tue Aug 20, 2013 9:15 am

So I got in at Purdue over IU (for a liberal arts degree, of all things) and immediately one of my first thoughts was "Bugger, this isn't exactly a liberal school. Going to be a tough time finding my crowd."

Anyways, saw some of the posters up in Recitation Hall. Thought I'd check it out, get to know more bronies around me so I'm not feeling forever alone...are we an underground here, or am I just blind/stupid? I've only been able to meet one other pegasister, luckily in my major, but wow. I sure have gotten some odd looks.

I guess that's brony-life in a nutshell anyway, though. Thanks for the cool posters, guys.

Guess I should introduce myself, but I don't really know the policies on real names and security, whatnot. I'm Tom, I'm majoring in English Secondary (high school) Education. That's about it, really.

EDIT: By the way I wear a trilby (fedora) and so far I think I'm the only person on campus who wears one. Usually walking around Beering and surrounding buildings.

Welcome! Glad to hear from someone new! If you have time, take a look around the forums a bit and see if you can strike up a conversation about pretty much anything! I wouldn't say we are underground, but it is kind of hard to show that you are a brony aside from clothing and the like (and that runs out pretty quickly). There aren't really policies on names other than use what you feel comfortable with!

Well, heck, if you're willing to be that forward, then why not?

I'm Trevor, and I am finishing up my degree in Geology.

Also, if we're talking about looks, try wearing a Denver Broncos cap around campus. Ever since they got Peyton, people have been looking at me like it's my fault...

By the way, is there a link to the Facebook group on here? I know there was one when I was registering but I couldn't get in and now I can't find it. =(

There might be one or two other people on campus who wear fedoras, but I'd advise against it. Also, Purdue may have a reputation of being a more conservative university but you have to remember it's still a public university and there's going to be loads of liberally minded people everywhere. It's not like we're BYU or Liberty University or something like that.

Meh. I've always worn this hat. It's a good hat.

There's a reason you don't see people wearing them. If you don't want everyone looking at you funny, ditch the hat, seriously.

No one at Purdue has to know you've always worn it. You can start over, clean.

I stopped caring what people think years ago. If they have a problem, they can tell me. But I've never heard any complaints about it. If anything, the only comment I hear is that people like it - and not sarcastically.

Where I come from, it is my hat. It sits on my head, except for when I'm inside. Everyone who knows me knows that. And everyone who knows me will know me when they see me walking about because it is my hat. There may not be many like it, but it is mine.

It's not like you're going to blend into a sea of faces if you don't wear it. You can have distinguishing traits besides a bad taste in hats. Most people won't actually approach you and tell you that it looks bad but I can guarantee you that people are thinking it. If you think it's necessary, I can tell you this to your face next time I'm at Purdue.

1. "Bad taste in hats" is not only subjective but also it is an opinion. My opinion is that it is a good hat. Your opinion is that it is not. And that is where we stand - I am not at all obligated to any action based out of an opinion unless it is my own.
2. What people think is their business, not mine. I look at it in the way that if I'll never know that they don't like it, then it doesn't bother me, if they honestly don't like it. And even if they express their dislike, that still doesn't bother me, because I am a Person.
3. Thank you, but it won't be necessary to reaffirm the fact that I am myself.

Please refrain from trying to force people to do something they do not wish to do. If he wants to wear a fedora, then he can wear the fedora. I would appreciate if this aspect of this conversation were to stop.

PostSubject: I'm new! :P   Tue Aug 27, 2013 4:00 pm

I'm new here and am sorry to say that I do not have a hat of any sort, but I was wondering how a simple minty haired dentist would locate the meet up spot before dinners, should I look for a certain person,spilled gorilla munch, a giant sign? Sorry for being stupid but, ya know, sometimes the minty fumes get to me.

Greetings! Nice to meet you! I sincerely apologize if you have tried to join before but couldn't find us! I admit that I haven't done that great of a job making the dinner tables recognizable for new members. I only have so many pony shirts. However, I think I'll start bringing one of the Hot Topic vinyl ponies and setting it on the table. We tend to head in right at 5:30 or slightly before if we see a line forming due to the length of lines that tend to form. Again, I do apologize for any inconveniences!

No worries! I haven't been able to attempt to join in dinners until today and just didn't think walking around asking every table if they possessed a disposition to hold colorful equines in a positive light to be a practical method of assimilation!

If I remember correctly all dinner congregations had appropriate spaghetti that made it pretty obvious if you were in the right place or not

Overcrowded tables that are 90% male are another thing to look out for

Fantastic advice, unfortunately (well, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] didn't really affect anyone else xD) I once again couldn't attend tonight <[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]> due to other stuff getting in the way. Nevertheless I am in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] at the prospect of our future encounter! I'll try to get my Derpy shirt washed for tomorrow and partake in the festivities. Hope everyone remembers to brush their teeth with their certified Colgate brand tooth paste, goodnight Purdue.
