I just finished seeing 'The Why of Fry,' what; 2 weeks ago? Anyway, I have a question that links 'The Why of Fry,' and 'The Day the Earth Stood Stupid.' In order for Fry to lack this brain wave, he 'had to do the nasty in the pasty,' according to himself, and become his own grandfather. But look at the order of the episodes.

The Day the Earth Stood Stupid ---> The Roswell that Ends Well ----> The Why of Fry

If he never was his own grandfather before "Roswell that Ends Well," how was he lacking the delta brain wave in "The Day the Earth Stood Stupid?" Am I missing something obvious?

Most of what happened in Roswell That Ends Well occurred over a thousand years before the day the earth stood stupid. When the events The Day The Earth Stood Stupid happened Fry had already 'done the nasty in the pasty', he just didn't know it yet. I know it doesn't make perfect sense, but thats time travel for ya.

So, technially we didn't know about it either, until 'The Roswell That Ends Well.'

Fry was always his own grandfather, he just never knew it, him going back to the past to father his father didnt change anything.

think of it this way, our fry's grandfather was future fry, who came back to 1947 to father fry's dad, then went back to the future.

Fry eventually becomes future fry and becomes past fry's and therefore his own grandfather
kapeesh?

Anyway we have covered all this here --> http://www.peelified.com/cgi-bin/Futurama/3-000330-1/

in the words of Nixorbo

LURK MORE!

(not quite as dramatic with the big letters but same message eh? Dont kill me Nix!)

dont read it all at once, read it bit by bit, it makes sense then

Edit:
1) Fry has always lacked the delta brain wave because future fry is his grandfather
2)When fry travels back in time to 1947 he has sex with his grandmother, getting her pregnant with his father
3) his father grows up, marries fry's mum, has sex with her, she gives birth to Fry
4) Fry grows up, meanwhile Nibblonians learn he is delta brainwave challenged.
5)Fry gets frozen
6)Fry saves earth from brains
7)Fry travels back in time, has sex with his grandmother...


get the idea?

According to the other post, Nibbler froze Fry, because he knew that he lacks the delta brain wave. Did he only lack it once he was frozen, or did he lack it before he was frozen? I'm just alittle confused to how Nibbler knew that he lacked the wave.

If Fry hadn't become his own grandfather, he wouldn't have existed in the first place. So Fry has always had the missing delta brainwave, likely a mutation which was the result of the universe trying to cope with the being-your-own-grandfather paradox.

The Nibblonians likely didn't know what caused Fry's immunity until after the events of Roswell That Ends Well, their sages could just forsee that he was 'the one'. They probably pieced it together from that.

Or maybe there was a nibblonian watching through the window during the past nastification. Whatever.
