every time I eat cereal it reminds me of Fry eating batchler chow. and whenever I see a whale (quite often in Newfoundland during spring/summer)
I think of the deleted scene from "When aliens attack"

I would say songs that have been on Futurama and then you hear in everyday life remind me of Futurama.

When ever I go to the doctors or by a hospital I think of Zoidburg. Probably because my doctor is so incompetent.

I hate to admit this but if a day goes by that I don't say to my wife, "oh yea, that reminds me of when (whomever) on Futurama (did)(said)(drank) this or that".  She thinks I'm insane and addicted.  She's couldn't be more wrong.  I mean it IS just a show, right?  It doesn't have special powers of control or something, does it?  Uh... I have to watch some tapes and DVDs I have now.

Haha, I have the same experiences with my girlfriend and friends. They all must think I am nuts. In any given conversation there is a Futurama quote chance if you know the show well enough. And if there isn't a Futurama quote a Family Guy quote will usually fit nicely. You can substitute quotes from these two shows for conversation as they are always funnier.

Exactly the same thing has happened to me. I must closely watch my mouth so as not to positively bore my friends to tears by constantly sharing 'Futurama Moments' with them.

The song "Bittersweet Symphony" reminds me of Futurama because it kinda sounds like the Futurama theme.

Last week I was at a play rehearsal with my video camera, doing interviews when I got bored. I turned the camera on my sister, who's the assistant director, and told her to say something funny. She said 'Whammy wozzle,' in a perfect monotone. And she's not even obsessed with Futurama!

Also, the song used in my signature, Cosmic Castaway from the Titan AE soundtrack, reminds me a lot of Futurama, to the extent that I cried when listening to it the day after TDHAIP... I was a little loopy that day. There's a number of songs that remind me of Futurama, including 'With These Hands' from Edward Scissorhands for TDHAIP, 'Say Goodbye' by... I don't know, for Fry and Michelle's relationship, a handful of Michelle Branch songs to be sappy Fry/Leela shippy songs, and rock versions of 'Science Fiction Double Feature' and 'Over the Rainbow', said versions by Me First and the Gimmie Gimmies.
There's also 'Istanbul (Not Constantinople)' because they say 'Old New York'. I can make any song remind me of whatever I'm currently obsessed with.

Same goes for books. Most of them Discworld books.
For RTEW and TWOF, Night Watch.
For the Futurama hobos, Soul Music, Hogfather, and The Truth

I think I'd better stop before I say anything more... this edit was way too long.

But I'm not broken, in my dream I win--Out here I'm no one, a cosmic castaway

"Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds now reminds me of Futurama.

For some reason whenever I hear "I Need a Hero" by Bonnie Tyler, I always think of Fry's more heroic moments.

I went to see my doctor yesterday.  He was wearing sandals.  I of course thought Zoidberg.

i just rediscovered this song on one of my cds. It's by Our Lady Piece. It reminds me of Fry and Leela

Somewhere Out There

Last time I talked to you,
you were lonely and out of place.

You were looking down on me,
lost out in space.

Laid underneath the stars,
strung out and feeling brave.

Watch the riddles glow,
watch them float away.

Down here in the atmosphere,
garbage and city lights,
you gotta save your tired soul,
you gotta save our lives.

Turn on the radio,
to find you on sattellite,
I'm waiting for the sky to fall,
I'm waiting for a sign.

All we are is all so far.

You're falling back to me,
the star that I can't see.
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling out of reach,
defying gravity,
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

Hope you remember me,
when you're homesick and need a change.
I miss your purple hair,
I miss the way you taste.

I know you'll come back someday,
on a bed of nails awake.
I'm praying that you don't burn out,
or fade away.

All we are is all so far

You're falling back to me,
the star that I can't see.
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling out of reach,
defying gravity,
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling back to me,
the star that I can't see.
I know you're out there, oh.
You're falling out of reach,
defying gravity....

I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling back to me,
the star that I can't see.
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling out of reach,
defying gravity,
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling back to me.

Well I know,
I know.

You're falling out of reach.

I know...

Hey, I remember that song...just the chorus though. From the lyrics it sounds like it could remind one of Fry and Leela.

The other day in English class, we were talking about classic literature and my teacher said "what if we went 1000 years into the future in the year 3003, what literature from today would you think would be classics." Then i laughed b/c i thought about futurama

In my art class, we're studying Art Careers and our first one is fashion design. You're supposed to design a futuristic outfit and hairstyle. I swear I am a least putting Leela's wrist thingy there as well as Amy's hair style. Casual wear for the year 3000.

I don't understand why they close threads like "what would you ask the what if machine?" and they leave threads like this up and running. Where's the consistancy?? Maybe it is like calvinball, you just make up the rules as you go along.

sk8ghost, what is so bad about this topic, eh? It hasn't turned into a spam fest, it's still on topic and it's an original idea. I don't see where you get that impression from.

Once in class my teacher was yelling at me for playing games on my laptop (even though I wasn't... I was mucking around in Photoshop!) and he said 'I believe you were playing games.' My response?

"Believe it all you want, it's not going to make it true."

He was fuming. He was about to explode. And he couldn't do anything about it.

Probably have something to do with the fact that "Ask the what-if machine" have been done at least 3-4 times by now.

Greetings Friends!

I work as a pharmacy technician.  On occasion we fill prescriptions called in by vets for animals.  Well, today I overheard my boss taking a prescription for "Scruffy" the dog!  I immediately thought of our beloved PE janitor!

A kid in my class at school reminds me of a cross between the Professor and Zoidberg.  He has a sort of dottering, senile attitude and whenever he runs away from something, he goes
WOOPWOOPWOOPWOOPWOOP
Also, when he sighs, he goes AAAAAAAAWWWWWWWW...just like Zoidberg.  Another friend drinks cans of diet coke all the time- just like Fry and the Slurm in Fry and the slurm factory.
