Personally I'm very glad you did.

I like how nobody noticed the 100g of Cool part.
100g/500g is 20%
but what does the zap jam good with?
Also, looking at tvtropes, I noticed something about the mane 6's economy:
Twilight - funded by the Equestrian government, lives in a well off and respected enviroment, never had to fear about finical problems, in addition with her brother being a high ranking officer in the army.
Applejack - A standard working family with a somewhat constant income by selling apples, but has a lot of competitors like the film flam brothers and has to pay a large sum of tax.
Rarity - Her fashion ability gives her a non-constant, but high yeilding income per dress, fortunately, ponyville has almost no clothing shops, not to mention tailors.
Fluttershy - a mixed farmer who sells eggs and small numbers of food; self-sustaining, very low income, I don't know anything else.
Rainbow Dash - A mid-high stable income being the highest ranking weather controller in ponyville, probably the most well off pony excluding twilight.
Pinkie Pie - Possibly the poorest of the cast, no income from family as they have just as little money, only have enough rent to get a simple attic on top of the Sugar cube corner; Might have increased wage from caring the foals.
It's plausible that Twilight recevies some manner of stipend. Applejack, Rarity, and Rainbow Dash have jobs. But...
a) I suspect Shining Armor doesn't financially support his sister at all, especially if she doesn't ask (though in another ponythread it's being speculated that they're a fairly high noble family anyway, not that Twilight would necessarily notice the implications).
b) I have a hard time believing Fluttershy has enough force of personality, under most circumstances, to "sell" anything except by putting a box out there, possibly with a price sign one of her friends may have made, and maybe stand near it looking vaguely indigent. I love the filly to bits, but a salesmare she's not. Honestly, I've been trying for months and the only source of income I can think of for her is if animal care is a government-type job like weather control.
c) I personally perceive it as peculiar that you posit Pinkie as the poorest primary pony, perceving Pinkie's prodigious purchasing patterns. (Okay, I'm going to stop that now.) She buys pranking supplies and cider and probably party supplies, and it wouldn't surprise me to find that she spends like water on other things. I don't know where she gets her money, but honestly I don't care as much as about Fluttershy.
I'm curious as to where you obtained your conclusions.
My personal theory is that Pinkie has a reasonable income due to parties being a common thing in Ponyville, but she spends most of it on supplies for her own parties.
So the reason we haven't seen Pinkie's part of Sugarcube Corner is that it's basically just a pink room with a bed, a dresser, and some confetti.
...I could be completely wrong though.

I wish there was a crossover between ponies and Ultima. A man travels through a moongate to the land of Equestria to fight evil and to represent the elements of Honesty, Compassion, Valor, Justice, Sacrifice, Honor, Spirituality and Humility.
Happy Birthday Pinkie!
I've never celebrated a fictional character's birthday before, but she's practically made it to our side a few times, and she is PartyGod, so she deserves it.
Anypony know if we've seen any pre-cutie-mark unicorns outside the mane six using magic? Particularly in Season 2?
Because it occurs to me - by and large, a pony's magic matches the color of their cutie mark. So maybe Sweetie Belle can't do magic because it would reveal something about her cutie mark.
(Flaws of this theory: ponies don't seem to notice the color of each other's magic (see: Chrysalis); we already have all the meaningful hints we can get)
I thought the magic color was associated with eye color.
Edit: Forget that. Celestia has blue(ish?) eyes.

Sometimes it's eye color and sometimes it's cutie mark. Whichever looks best against the mane, presumably. There are surprisingly few unicorn foals, and I can't recall any instances of any of them doing magic, Snips and/or Snails aside.
also no more men traveling to Equestria, please, that's overplayed.
After that Ultima would work just fine. Maybe back to the era of Three Pony Kingdoms from the Hearthswarming episode. Well before the arrival of Windigos that is.
Fanfics (There's a bunch):
What about thingy's newborn, that Pinkie had to babysit? Magic all over the place then.
...who uses a gold aura to levitate the tickets at the end of Ticket Master?

Some magic colors changed between seasons. It was disconcerting at first, yeah, but it is nice to know that they're paying attention to magic colors and that it can be used for storytelling purposes (Mare-Do-Well; Canterlot Wedding Part 1).
Ticket Master makes no sense and never has. Celestia's magic is gold nowadays, right? Let's say that Celestia was levitating the tickets in front of everyone's heads. From afar.
Maybe those were magic tickets or Twilight was holding them in a really weird way.
