Mass creation of similar topics is very annoying to everyone, including mods

Well, one of this show's social points has always been that "technology may change, but people/society/problems don't".  Really, Futurama is in many ways just a futuristic version of modern day.  For instance, they don't have traffic jams, but they do have tube jams (Lesser of Two Evils), so nothing has really changed.  And their politicans may be heads in jars but they're just as corrupt as ever, as another example.  As Groening and Cohen have said, they knew when developing the show that it couldn't be all happy and perfect like Jetsons, or dark and drippy like Blade Runner, because to really do a comment on society it needed to have both, a balance, so it could be like it is now in a certain sense.

But yeah, neither or either.  Both have their ups and downs.

It's just a prime example that people will remian people, stubborn, ego-centered and stupid. Sure, we have lasers and intergalactic spaceships, but other than that nothing have changed. Although AOL seems to suck even more.

Still, I'd probably take the era with spaceships and one-eyed alien babes.

Busted ruined the year 3000!

Recently I read about a Japanese company which have invented and started to sell spray-on tights, which basically sprayed a thin layer of sheer silk. This reminded me of Futurama, of course.

I thought the earth was gonna be destroyed by the year 3000 anyway...by an asteroid or something.

Since both times have the same everyday problems, i'll go with the year 3000. Hey, there may still be traffic jams but atleast i'd be in a cool hover car or on a jetpack!

I'll go with 3000 as well, but only if you come from thev twentieth century and can compare. Otherwise all those things would seem mundane, like cars and aeroplanes do now.

I think I'll prefer the year 3000. I'm off to the cryogenics lab. Lets just hope I pick one made of magic...
