Mobile pony?

Small mobile site pony request: Sidebar and new post on the bottom menu?

Not a huge deal, but I find myself switching back and forth often enough to ask.

No, we're not likely to add a new post button. We discussed it recently here. And I'm not sure about the sidebar. Our bottom menu is already comically long, I think. You might bookmark the sideblog and visit that way occasionally instead of switching to the standard site.

Unicorns aren't real. Ponies sometimes are.

I just cleaned up the sideblog-only page for the mobile version. Here's a handy link for bookmarking: Sideblog.

Narwhals are real. I take comfort in that.

Oh for christ's sake.....

Yes special-k, I was wrong. I've been affected by the skepticism of an internet age. I don't believe in what I can't Google. I think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by optical character recognition.

Yes, special-k there are unicorns. They exist as certainly as lolcats and 4-chan and twitter exist, and you know that they frolic and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no unicorns. It would be as dreary as if there were no breakfast cereal. There would be no thinkgeek parodies then, no Obama illustrations, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.

I don't know what I was thinking.

However, despite my sister's childhood insistence to the contrary, there is no such thing as a unicorn/pegasus hybrid called a "unisus".

Correct, everyone knows it's called a PegCorn.

The Unisys does exist, but it is an evil thing that leeches magic from the world.

Relevant: is there a way to have unicorn and narwhal Preview / Post buttons in Chrome? Life feels so much less sparkly and magical since I switched from Firefox and lost the ability to use this Greasemonkey script to reveal the true nature of these seemingly workaday interface elements.

Step 1: From Chrome, install the Greasemonkey script as though you were using Firefox.
Step 2: UNICORNS!

Woah. Chrome accepts Greasemonkey userscripts as valid extensions; I had no idea. My only quibble is that the "Post Comment" text is too wide for the unicorn button when used in Chrome, but this is easy enough to fix by editing the userscript.

Unicorns aren't real. Ponies ARE but your parents won't get one for you >:-(

Roger is part of a small group of fantasy animalists that believes the creature in question should be called a unihorn instead of the more familiar unicorn.
Right, I mean. what does it have one of? A horn or a corn?

Right so it's a horn
yeah
So you thought it should be called that.
yeah

Because unicorns killed my family.
