Today I had to go to homeroom at school.

Written on the board was,(for some odd reason) "Bender, Lionel, Lasers: New York"

Sign me up on that "everything"-list too!  wink

Anyway, today at school, a guy in my class was supposed to say "insane in the membrane" (everyone in my class has begun to use that expression, despite the fact that English is not our main language), but instead he said "insane in the mainframe"! I almost laughed my ass off, I asked if he was a fan, he said yes, and then we had this great talk about how brilliant Futurama is!
I love it when these things happen.

Heh, I do the same thing, becky. Those damn parodies have superseded the originals in my mind. Kind of ruins a debate about different visions of the afterlife when you cite Parasites Lost as an example.

I saw a Rebel Without a Cause poster. I already knew that bit of trivia about Fry's clothes being lifted from that movie, but it was still a trip to see them on James Dean. Then my friend saw me laughing at it and said, "Hey, you're dressed sort of like the guy in the poster! What a weird coincidence." I said, "Yeeesss... Coincidence," and then I laughed some more.

Also, some guy kept yelling "Second!" in a class discussion. The more he said it, the more I realized the lecture hall resembled the meeting room at the beginning of Futurestock.

I just finished reading 'Paradise Lost' in my AP European History class.

Reminded me of that great episode: 'Parasites Lost'.

Anyway, with everything reminding me of Futurama; there are parasites in the drinking water here were I live!  puke Reminds me of a certain Futurama-episode and Futurama Comics #11 (when Fry falls into the water and the whole town is infected with the common cold).

I didn't just notiec this, but this is the first time I've thought about it while online.

There's a place at my school called "Farnsworth Pavillion."  Named after some chemist, which I assume is the same place Matt & DXC got the name for the character.

I think they mentioned it in one of the commentaries, but I think they did the name for Farnsworth from a scienctist (correct me if I'm wrong).

Philo T. Farnsworth was the inventor of the television. He wasn't a chemist though so unless NOR got that bit wrong it's probably a coincidence.

No, I'm pretty sure I was thinking of Philo T. Farnsworth.  I just sorta guessed chemist...I think I was thinking of the guy who invented the Buckminster-Fullerenes, who was (and I think still is) a professor at Rice.

Anyway, yeah, I think both the pavillion and the character are named after Philo Farnsworth.

I don't know if anyone knows of the show "NewsRadio", but I was watching an episode and the character Bill McNeal (played by Phil Hartman) was working on something when his boss walks in and asks him if everything was going adequately. Bill looks at him and says that he was just bursting with "adequatulance". A few minutes later he says "Well, I'm off to amaze the world with more feats of... adequatiquaticism." That just seems to remind me (a lot) of Zapp. Not just for the obvious reasons, but because of the way he says them. Ah... good times...good times.

I recently went to the store and bought a drink called "Superfood". The 5th or 6th ingredient on the  list was royal jelly. It really freaked me out. I mean, I knew it was real, but I had no idea that they actually put it in food!

I was at my high school the other day in maths and my teacher asked the special ED teacher something about a book, and the teacher replied "I was going to thumb through that later". The exact words of Fry in MTS!!

As Todd M. writes, adding to this subject, "The merger of television shows and commercials is a slippery slope that ends with the medium becoming completely irrelevant. I realize that in the age of TiVo, advertising needs to become more aggressive, but product placement isn't the answer. If advertisers continue to alienate viewers by watering down our programs with their fodder, there will be no one left to watch. Their only recourse will to invade our dreams at night (à la LightSpeed Briefs on Futurama)." Yes, Todd, but what is the answer? TV shows don't exist for our benefit alone. They're designed as delivery vehicles for advertiser messages. Some do it more efficiently (and less obviously) than others, but the playing field is getting messier with each technological breakthrough.

Today, on the way back to the station after a fire call, we had the radio on in the truck.  The song "Two Princes" (the one the PE ship was listening to in "Love and Rocket" ) came on the radio.

Everytime I see 'The Venture Brothers' and the robot "Helper" I'm always reminded of the one-time Futurama character of the same name.

I went to church today, and there was a part with a call and response thing - it strongly reminded me of A Pharoah to Remember. One of the reasons I shouldn't go in churches.

Today I found another Futurama fan at my work! I'm so happy!

Anyway, today's special at the canteen were nachos (I think, something Mexican) with guacamolé. While standing in line, I heard one mutilation of "quackamoll" after another. Finally I said: [Lrrr]"it's pronouced guacamolé!"[/Lrrr]. Well most people looked at me funny, but a guy further back in the line said: [Lrrr]and stop eating our young!"[/Lrrr]  big grin

Unfortunately the guy work in a completely different section of the warehouse, so we only see eachother at lunch, but we shared a few laughs.

It's probably for the best that he works in a different section, Teral.  If you worked alongside him, the two of you would probably never get any work done.

 big grin Thanks, Airbagfailure, now I know what to tell a certain guy who’s really been getting on my nerves lately. Seriously, he sticks to me like glue, and it's beginning to get really annoying...

Anyway, back to the topic:
I realized that one of my teachers sounds a lot like David X. Cohen today.

Oh crap, is it me? I just realised how much I've been responding to you lately.
Sorry if I'm being a jerk.  frown

And even if it isn't me, I'll still look completely self-centered and stupid for posting this...

Jerk? You?! Zmithy, please don't say something like that ever again. Do you have any idea how much your replies means to me? Really, I mean it  smile You make me feel appreciated.

The guy I'm talking about is someone at my school. [small rant]It was ok in the beginning but now he’s gone a little too far and kept it going a little too long... I just need my personal space.[/rant]

With that said, don't feel stupid about your post.
Now let's get back on topic!
