At my school, some one took a anatomy poster of the human body and turned it upside down. I thought of Dr. Zoidburgs office! lol

Early days yet, but I get the feeling this breakthrough is going to be a big part of our future lives.

That reminds me of an old Herbie Hancock video, "RockIt," (1983).
I hope the future is better'n that!

There's a song by Belle and Sebastian called "Another Sunny Day", verse 3 goes like this:

"Another day in June, we'll pick 11 for football.
We're playing for our lives, the referee gives us fuck all.
I saw you in the corner of my eye on the sidelines.
Your dark mascara bids me to historical deeds."

Ever since I saw Bender's game the last line has become:

"Your dog mascara bids me to historical deeds."

And I think that will stick in my head for all time.

I was watching The Colbert Report last night when on the ThreatDown, the #2 threat was pole-dancing robots.

I was playing Halo 3 today and one of the marines taunted a group a brutes by screaming "You're pending for a bending!".  I wasn't expecting this at all and thought it was hilarious. In hindsight they might have put it in because John DiMaggio does the voices for some of the brutes.

The "Peel" Centre in Stockport also reminds me of Futurama, not surprisingly.

I was watching that South Park episode where a bunch of rich people move into town.  Will Smith is on the phone with Snoop Dogg, and he calls Snoop "Snu-Snu".  made me snicker.

Since there's really no hope of reaching anyone responsible for the show/DVDs, I'll have to settle for posting here and hoping David X. Cohen et al find out about it some other way...

http://science.the-environmentalist.org/2009/02/avoiding-frankenplanet.html

Notably, this paragraph...

"My favorite is the space umbrella – a giant parasol deployed above the Earth to shade us from the sun’s rays. According to The Economist, geo-engineers like this option because it’s the most “scalable”. In other words, if the atmosphere gets hotter, we can increase the size of the umbrella. Researchers calculate that an umbrella half the size of Brazil could offset half the warming expected over the next 100 years, assuming no cuts in greenhouse gas emissions."

Sound familiar?

Honestly, how pathetic is it that things created for laughs on a cartoon show are being considered as actual solutions to the problem of global climate change?

The idea of an orbital mirror or "umbrella" didn't originate with futurama.  Science fiction writers have been using that as a way to potentially prevent global warming / solar storms / other bad radiation sources for decades.  But yeah, it would cost rediculous amounts of money, plus be almost impossible to actually build or get into orbit in the first place.

Was the Futurama six-pack champagne strawberry flavored or was that something else?

Not surprised it reads "bender" but I could say it is an unusual word for a street sign. And you live in Japan?

It's probably not a coincidence roads would be the same as the names. People won't give it a second thought as they pass it by, but Futurama fans would be the only one to notice and have a chuckle.

I saw a guy in the grocery store today; he was wearing a gray sweatshirt for Pabst Blue Ribbon. Of course, I instantly thought of Pabst Blue Robot from "The Route of All Evil"--and, consequently, this exchange:

Quote
Fry: How 'bout Löbrau? It has dots on it.

Bender: Overruled. The choice of champions is Pabst Blue Robot!

Fry: I can't drink that! The metal shavings make my throat bloody.

Bender: Baby wants a Zima!

Leela: Hey, hey! We can all fight when we're drunk!

(And, on a somewhat irrelevant note, for as unbearable as I find most of that episode, I think that the Fry/Bender/Leela subplot is one of the best stories Futurama has ever done. It's just funny stuff.)

There was this food court I used to frequent was selling something that looked like poplers.

It was like a fried nugget but shaped that resembles poplers. I had it for lunch for almost every single day. Until they raise the price.

So I work at a grocery store, and now's the time of year when people are buying a lot of corn on the cob, for whatever reason. And, every so often, when I'm checking out people's corn-containing orders, John DiMaggio's voice will pop into my head, from the commentary for "A Bicyclops Built for Two": "Corn. Emmy-award-winning corn."

Yes, moments in life reminding me of moments from Futurama commentaries is unspeakably dorky. But whatever.
