While most shows ridicule nerds Futurama embraces them! So what's the nerdiest in Futurama?

There's one in Raging Bender, the cinema complex is called something-nutplex. A reference to sum'ut mathy. That's pretty nerdy, so nerdy I had to listen to the audio comentary to get.

I think that Bender's room number being the binary for $ (I think) is pretty nerdy.

Speaking of Binary,  what does the BInary say at Bender's relative's castle in The Honking? Anyone?

Why, it says "666", of course.

Anyway, we already have a thread for this here.

benders binary room number inspired this away message of mine, that leaves the people nerdy enough to figure it out a nice surprise.

I think the calculations on the blackboard in "Time keeps on slipping" was supposed to be some kind of maths-nerd joke. There was also a REALLY nerdy joke in "Love and rocket". When Bender and The PE ship were going to merge their programs, and Bender was inside the ships computer(?) he was going along an electric track of some kind. But it was a diode that only lets electricity flow one way, and it was pointing to the wrong way, and that's why it's like Bender's electrical impulse version hits a wall. I will take no credit for this explanation, it was all on the DVD commentary for LOR.

As said in Merc's link I think the Klein Bottles, Strong Force crazy glue, Grand Unified Shcool District and the Aleph-nul plex was pretty cool.

If you want a Klein bottle, here's a site that sells them.

4 million lines of BASIC.

Mainly because of the commentary.

No, I don't think the commentary makes it any nerdier Sil. Although there's a joke in Leela's Homeworld with DXC takes absolute glee in giving a nerdy lecture about in the commentary. It's the joke about the "ding ding" from Professor's crazy machine.

I think the physics jokes are the best of them all, also why I specifically mentioned the GU School District.

The Strong Force crazy glue is from "The 30% Iron Chef", when Zoidy tries to repair the bottle.

What is so funny about Strong Force crazy glue? Is it a reference to some sci-fi TV show?

I'm with Mouse On Venus on this one: P and NP. Difficult to spot and nerdy to the bone.

No, it's a physics joke.

Our current model for describing the Universe have 4 elementary forces: gravitation, electro-magnetism, the weak force and the strong force. The strong force is the most powerful of the 4, and is responsible for holding the nucleus in all atoms together. Without the strong force, no atoms, and hence no Universe.
