    To me it looks like mathematical gibberish.

    If my quick calculations are correct, it is a function that evaluates 417 + (t * 139) or 417 + (t * 179), or maybe both? So, probably some sort of time function....

    It googles to MLP fanfic so you should avoid pursuing it's meaning.

    If you solve it you can make a time travel to the future.

    well:

    tome looks :

    f(x) = (34+ ( ((t^1)*55) + 74 +(30-20) ) + ((378*(t^0))+5) )
    where t1 and t0 prolly are scalar variables (of the same vector, scalar variable called time.)

    Is it called Hard Reset?
    If so, then its real equation.

    Putting the equation into quotes and searching for that in Google quotes and all brings up gbatemp and a government site. osm I think you stumbled upon national secrets.

    Is it bad that I know what "Twi" and "tia" refer to?

    No, you are allowed to like whatever you want and that is okay.

    It just needs to be said that being an adult watching My Little Pony is not a social norm and trying to make yourself stand out by making it an extension of your personality isn't a good idea.

    Finally someone said it. Bronies are the most pretentious fandom I've ever seen

    And what is a norm? To me, it's something that previously wasn't but is now. Now, I don't want to get into an argument over this, but shows like Spongebob and Pokemon weren't considered normal for anyone other than children, but as time progressed, it became normal for older people to partake in. It's because preconceived notions of them were put aside and they were given an objective look. For me, I initially dismissed MLP:FiM because of my preconceptions that it would be just like the previous generations and be focused at little girls (plus it used Flash animation, which at the time I despised because of how stiff it made cartoons appear). It wasn't until I gave it a chance that I found that it was a good show that simply had colorful ponies on the cover. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but we aren't cats. We are people, and curiosity is a common quality for success. What's the phrase? Don't knock it till you try it? That is how social norms became as such. I'm not saying everyone has to watch it or has to like it, but to immediately dismiss it on bounds of preconceptions is an act of close-mindedness.

    Now, there are "extremists" that push things too far, but that exists in all fandoms. I will admit a good portion of bronies are more pretentious that most, if not all, fandoms, but then I have also seen as great an opposition grow at the same time, far greater than those against other fandoms. It's like each side grows in numbers in preparation for war, with being on the top of the list for war numbers. It's just interesting that for as much as humans have progressed beyond each problem, like race, gender, etc., we continue to find something bad because we must have something bad. Negativity is what drives the human race.

    Now, you can put me on ignore if you want for being a "brony" and doing something that is not currently part of the social norm. It really doesn't matter to me at this point. All I'm saying is that people need to keep an open mind.
