Yes, I did the math.
I assumed Rainbow Dash's Mass was 50kg. Changing this number doesn't affect the absurdity of the velocity though.

May not be at the speed of light but is still bullshit. she would be travling at 1/44.05 of the speed of sound so if she was 44 times faster she would reach the speed of sound so horse shit

So wile coyote should fall off a cliff nearly instantaneously it is a comic/cartoon or cartoon/comic, and if you want to get technical without bigger wings or stronger wing muscles or internal organs filled with hydrogen or helium with body heat making these gases even lighter these ponies probably would not be able to fly at all, so come down please.

Please I am not trying to be an ass I merely take things to seriously. I am not being critical and I still enjoy the comic I sadly am to hug up on the facts that I miss the point of the actual comic

Well, Mach 20000 according to scootaloo's math.

And Scoots definitely didn't her mathematics cutie mark.

Bullshit it wouldn't be called a sonic rain boom if she can fly around the world at that speed she would be reaching light boom the speed of light the speed required for a rain boom/ sonic boom is 761mph the speed of light is 186,000 miles per second

The international space station or Iss travels at 27648 km/h or 17179.67072298 mph and takes 87-92 minutes to CIRCLE THE EARTH not anywhere near the speed of light!

I wonder if it would ever reach a point where even Rainbow Dash would think a restraining order is a good idea? =P

I though Scoot running a Rainbow dash appreciation club was pretty extreme... and that was in the show. With some of the Obsessaloo fanworks out there (I get a kick out of ask stalkerloo), I wouldn't be surprised

TarriPup Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2012  Student
Haha yeah.. but even though the RD Appreciation Club was extreme, Rainbow Dash totally doesn't mind, in fact she's all for the attention. =P
But that's the joke in it there - she loves the attention, so having to get a restraining order would probably result in a broken time-space axis... although I would theorise a broken time-space axis would have more to do with Pinkie Pie.. =P

So she violated the speed of light? Last I heard that was about 300,000 km/s in a vacuum.

Might wanna check your math, that explosion, while cool, wasn't near five kilotons, otherwise the trees above AJ and Twilight would've been flash vaporized. It was probably more in the realm of 1-5 tons of TNT.

NON OF MY NITPICKING SHOULD BE TAKEN AS SERIOUS COMPLAINTS OR CRITICISM.

Found this stuff via EQD. I'm lovin' it.

6.5 million M/s is 6,500 km/s

Yep, and the math and assumptions are flawed. This is Scootaloo we are talking about, when has she ever learned calculational physics.

I assumed Rainbow Dash had broken the light barrier. If she did, she would've been able to traverse the world I think 6 times over in a second.
Did she break the light barrier? :o

I think getting your cutie mark is not as much about finding your special talent, but accepting that that talent is the direction that you will lead your life.
