Either way, brains have to grow after the baby's out of the egg. You could argue that's impossible, and brains can only grow in a mammalian womb, and um, would probably have a point there.

It's the difference between eggs and live birth. The brain (or whatever) that would've grown big in the womb must grow to the same size, outside of the egg. Somehow.

The thing about brains, at least mammalian brains, is that for a species to be really smart, like primate, tool user, abstract reasoning level smart, it seems like they have to be born with pretty big brains already, close to the size and complexity they'll be as adults. I am not sure why this is, but it's a pattern we see, at least with mammals. Searching for papers about it brings up things like this but glancing at it quickly, that one seems to be saying that humans evolved to be smart in order to take better care of human infants that are so very helpless at birth compared to foals that can walk within an hour after they're born, and so on. I am not sure how to interpret this. Maybe it's a primate thing. I know bears are pretty large and intelligent carnivores, and baby bears are really tiny hairless things the size of a potato.

It's still going to be a bigger package than babby alone. If you believe Wackypedia the only extant egg-laying mammals are the monotremes : echidnas, platypi, and their relatives. They seem to be a rather primitive branch of mammals, with lots of distinctive anatomical weirdness going on, suggesting they evolved in isolation for tens of millions of years. They are sufficiently weird that I am not sure we can use them to make assumptions about egg-laying ponies.

Egg laying animals have to grow a heck of a lot once they get out of the egg. It's necessary since the mother has to lay the whole incubation chamber not just the baby, and the egg can't get any bigger once it's out of her, so it puts a hard limit on a newborn's size.

So intelligent dinosaurs and oviviparous pegasusses would have to grow most of their brain after they're born.

If they're going to be intelligent, they have to be born with pretty big brains already. At least if we're talking about the norms of our world's mammalian biology. Note how different a woman's pelvis is from that of a lot of other mammals of similar size. Pegasi laying eggs and fuzzy pegasus chicks hatching and bumbling about making "peep peep peep" sounds are cute, but if we're going for that level of worldbuilding and trying that hard to make them plausible, biologically speaking pegasus mares would have to have a pelvis with a birth canal through the center that's as significantly larger than one a woman has. Consider an egg large enough to contain a human infant. I tell you what, dang ol' oviparous mammals gotta have a big ol' dang pelvis.

How big would pegasus eggs be? Assuming the show height of about 3.5 feet, I think Deoinychus antirrhopus is about that size. Slightly smaller, so I'd guess the egg canal would be around 8cm for an egg laying creature of a pegasus's size. So I guess pegasus eggs would be maybe… roughly the size of a softball?

So recently I've been circumsized by my own dad. It's a gnome tradition, you see. It's bad because usually you do it to babies, not grown ass bearded midgets.

I can still smell blood under my crotch. I blame my ethnicity and the universe that has made me miserable for the rest of my live. I was proud of my gnome foreskin damn it! It was making a huge impact on my attractive side! Yes, most women find me too short to be right up their alley, but fairies… Dude, fairies are so short you can use them as condoms.

So that I did.

Now I have my own fairy made wrapper around my dick to keep me warm. But my dignity as a man is fleeting.

I feel so sad and alone…

So sad and alone…

Please feed me.

Ponerpics isn't your hugbox. So If I am to call you a crybaby nigger, don't expect this message to magically dissapear within a few hours. In fact, more people would only be more temped to exploit your time by wasting theirs to make as much damage to your self esteem as possible.

Real people don't cater to nobody's feelings. They have barely enough energy to deal with their own problems, let alone anyone else's.

So kys.

Faithfully yours,
