This reminds me of a certain Futurama character ... see if you can find the brief scene of which I'm talking about.

Woo!  Top of the page yodel.

I think I saw an H.G. Blob in there, Zoidy227!  wink

A friend of mine told me that she knows a girl with one eye (she's blind on the other) with purple hair. Of course, that reminded me of Futurama.

Another thing is that the other day, in class, everybody began to sing "Don't worry, be happy". It was so funny, and I immediately thought about "The Sting".

I once went to this psychic fair and got a reading done. She said I had an alternate reality trying to reach me, like a parallel universe. Of course I immediately thought of the Farnsworth Parabox

I saw a roller coaster one time called "The Mind Bender". It surprised me.

You are now one of my favorite Peelers ever.

Today I was in the car and heard Total Eclipse of the Hart. I turned it way loud and my mom got mad at me. Then when we got home, we watched Sky Captian and the World of Tommorow.

I was walking a few hours ago in Sydney. A busker was there playing the same instrument as Hermes in Time Keeps on Slipping for the nude conga line.

There is an add on the moment that's a parody on Funkytown, advertising some fruit product called Chunkytown. You know what that reminds me of  tongue

My sister says that whenever they stop for petrol she thinks of Bender exploding in Parasites Lost. Lol  big grin

When watching the news today, I suddenly remembered my dream since last night: I was in the car, listening to the news, when it was  announced that Fox had revived Futurama! And now I'm *so* frustrated! I can remember how absolutely ecstatic I was. Dang, now I'm really pining for new eps  frown More than usual, that is...

Yeah, I know how you feel, in a way--at the local comic store, they told me that they wouldn't be making any new Futurama stuff, except the comics and calendars. I'm not sure how true that is, but it made me want new episodes even more.

Sucks! Hopefully not entirely true, somehow

When I was studying Latin yesterday (the joy!), I came across the word 'morbo'. It's the ablative case of morbus, which means 'decease'. It kinda fits him  tongue

I was asked to give someone a hand at work and I replied 'Can Do' just like leela in Parasites Lost, with the salute too. Safe to say - nobody got it.

Every Saturday since the Detroit Pistons won the NBA playoffs, they've shown something called Prime Time Pistons, which features series of shorts entitled "Interplanetary Pistons" (click the link to watch them).

So I watched it, because nothing better was on. The Pistons had to save the world from time-skips caused by a baby spinning the Earth on its finger like a basketball. (Oh noez!!)

What's this, now? A basketball team saving the world from timeskips? Ooh, what a coinsidence...

AsaB--What declension is that word in? I can't say I've ever come across it. (Then again, I'm in 6th grade Latin--we're only on second declension.) Still...that's pretty cool.

Anyway, I keep hearing songs that remind me of Futurama (scarily enough, a lot of them are by Avril Lavigne). And earlier today, I was making up a song in my head, and it was about Futurama. (It had something to do with "giant birds and giant bees"--from The Series Has Landed and The Sting, respectively.)

Also, I'm not sure if this has been mentioned anywhere (I think it has, but oh well), but in one episode of The Fairly Oddparents, Cosmo and Wanda get frozen in their fishbowl, and when they get thawed, Cosmo asks if they're in the future. Needless to say, that reminded me of Futurama.

I went to the public Library a few days ago to find some information for this crappy thing I had to do, and some kid had left a Library book on the floor.
 So I picked it up to put it on the shelf when I looked at the cover and on it was that French kid who stands on that planet then later gets knocked off by Dwight and Cubert in "The Route Of All Evil"! I forget the name of the book but whoever drew the kid in Futurama did a really good job of it!

Yesterday I was sitting at a stop light. I then noticed a building across the street. It was a work out place called Planet Fitness but the combo of a van in front of me and the possition of the light blocked the fitn. So I thought it said Planet Express and if it had said that I seriously would have wet myself. Then I would have ran home, cleaned up and then go back to join this gym....I mean I would work out every day of my life if I could say "I work out at Planet Express"

A cycle just finished in the washing machine and I had to wait for a series of impossibly timed and pitched clicks before I could open the door. It reminded me of the "two dings" scene in Leela's Homeworld.

Sorry for the late answer. But, that word is actually in the second declension  wink At least that's how I learned it, all words ending in -us (aka 'servus') are called declensions of the second type. Just ask if you're still confused!

On-topic: My dad has a little thing that's actually 'The Zapper'...need I go on?

Thank you, AsaB.

I've recently introduced a friend to Futurama. He likes it. ONE OF US...ONE OF US...I've also been quoting it a lot around my best friend. I'm not sure if she'd be allowed to watch it, but she seems to think the quotes are pretty funny. (I've told her quite a few of the drug jokes. Now, Emily (the aforementioned friend,) Stewart (another friend) and I will sometimes randomly quote Lrrr's line from The Problem With Popplers, about his hands being huuuuuuuuge.)

Anyway, I'm now at the point where most of the songs I listen to remind me of Futurama. I've also been getting random scenes stuck in my head...like getting a song stuck in your head, only different.

I was just thinking about this thread.

I was watching Nicktoons with my little sister, as My Life as a Teenage Robot came on. The episode title was "Future Scope." I had to do a double take, because I thought it said Future Stock.

As I'm writing this, I'm watching Aladdin on Disney, where Jasmin bumps into the fire breather. He swallows the match, then sarts choking on it. Suddenly, he creates a flaming burp. Reminded me of Bender, obviously

I have a fun story... Yesterday of course was Valentine's Day. So, a group of about 12 guys on my campus decided that, to celebrate, they'd run around campus wearing only white thongs with hearts painted on their asses, singing "Valentine's Day songs" and throwing the tiny chalky hearts all over the place. I did not see this (thank God) but I did, however, see the result. Candy hearts EVERYWHERE. At the time, I had no idea how it had happened, and of course it reminded me of "Love and Rocket." It was neat to see about a thousand candy hearts stewn all over the floor. I heard that some people called campus police and they got in trouble though. Some people just take things way to seriously and ruin all the fun.  roll eyes No wonder life is so boring.

I know, depressing. I guess that's why they used it. Everytime I log on there is this little sign that pops up saying "Spam zapper" or soomething.

Mandy, please check the PEELvention thread again. Thank you.

Hey! Welcome to PEEL blobby goat!  smile Have a great stay in Nerd World.

Yesterday at school, I won this contest and I yelled "In your face Gorgack!". The whole class stared at me. Luckly my friend who knew how much I like Futurama said; "It's my nickname."

That was extremely nice of your friend. Nobody really knows of my obsession at school, so I just keep my mouth shut. However, they do know I have a Futurama ringtone on my phone, because it went off in class. One person even asked me if that was Futurama. Luckily, we had a substitute that day who didn't mind so much.   smile

Thank you Procyon. Only about three of my friends know about my obsession. Although a lot of people in my school like Futurama, some just like it a little, and some like it a lot, like my friend.

Almost everybody in my class knows I like Futurama, because I try to get all my friends to watch it. I got my next doors neighbors to watch Futurama. Most of my friends haven't seen or aren't allowed to, but they laugh at all the quotes I tell them. So, yeah all my friends know I'm obssesed.

Tonight in class, we were discussing pathophysiology (how disease and injury affects the human body), and the teacher was talking about bacterial and viral agents, and she was referring to them as invaders.  I almost piped up "possibly from space?"  I almost had to bite my lip to keep my mouth shut.

I heard on the radio about some dangerous virus, that origins in a diamond in Congo. I'm ashamed to say that made me laugh, because it obviously reminded me of a certain scene in Bend Her.

Pretty much everyone knows of my obsession. I've introduced friends to the show, and that makes me feel good.

Uh, no new things have reminded me of Futurama...well, a friend who I recently introduced to the show told me that he saw The Sting...and a different friend gave me Futurama-O-Rama for my birthday...but that's it.

I heard Beck on the radio a couple of weeks ago, and had a total Futurama flashback. My mom had to ask me why I was smiling so much, as I don't usually like "vaguely folkish alterna-rock."
