Twilight Vs Technology #8 by Sintakhra Twilight Vs Technology #8 by Sintakhra
Don't you just hate it when you wake up one morning, tug yourself out of your bed in your Pyjamas and go to the toaster. Keep it on the same setting it has ALWAYS been on.

And for some reason the toast gets more burnt than usual?

Et tu toaster?
dipsydew Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2015
a toaster counts down typically with a spring attached to a ratchet that winds up a second spring. The spring force causes the ratchet to tick along at a constant rate, twisting a second smaller spring, and once it has twisted enough, the spring force on the second spring is enough to pull loose a catch, loosing the rest of the spring force from the first spring, which pushes the lever up and that turns off the coils.

Anything, including springs, will gradually stretch out over time when under tension. The effect this has is to decrease the spring force, since the spring is now looser than it used to be. The rate a ratchet ticks along is proportional to the force applied to it, so a lower spring force makes the ratchet tick slower, increasing the amount of time it takes to build up force on the second spring. A looser second spring also requires more turns of the ratchet in order to have enough force to pull loose the catch.

As toasters get older, they will always toast bread longer than they would at the same setting when new. Sometimes it loosens dramatically which burns your bread. But unless the springs are totally worn out (and the lever never pops up), the solution is simply to lower your toast setting over time.

Now if only I could figure out why this frying pan continues to burn food so long after I turn off the heat.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room

This comic felt different from the others!

Having less text helps, but the way that you communicated her emotions are my favourite part of this :).
I love the expectation on her face when it seems this time it might actually work, and I can just hear the sound of the thud she makes when she hits the floor.

When she was writing her email to Celestia about how she worked thing out in the end I never really shared her feelings of pride. I felt like this comic had already established what would happen, so maybe by now she would have learnt not to do this kind of thing:…

In this comic though, she starts off being a little anxious, which is how I felt! Then her expression changes, and how I followed her emotions along with her!

Also d'aww. Twilight in stars and moons PJs = cute.
Also also D'AWW. Matching PJs and bedspread > cute.

Edit: D'awws.

It happens to me more often than I care to mention. I put it on medium, let it go, and it burns it. Don't get me wrong, I still eat it, but I prefer toast, not charcoal.

Dear Princess Celstia: I love Pop Tarts, but I need a more effective way of heating them: one that won't involve the risk of burning them to a crisp. Your Faithful Student, Twilight Sparkle.

P.S.: I love my Pyjamas.

Silly filly! Hasn't she played Arcanum! Her magic affinity's too high, technology ceases to work in the presence of strong mages!

It just doesn't make sense though ;_; why aren't the books on technology helping her understand it?

Maybe twilight should read about electronics and build her own...
