#1. It probably just lists the percentage of iron, zinc, titamium and dolomite wrongly in his instruction manual. Hey, he was built in Mexico after all.  tongue

#2. EVERYTHING goes out of fashion. It's just a matter of time.

MY QUESTION: In The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings, why did Leela remain deaf until getting robot ears installed? It's the 31st century - surely there'd be a quick & easy cure for deafness by then. And for that matter - why didn't Bender replace his ass? He's replaced his legs before, not to mention the fact that his ass was replaced already in PYHOMS.

Dolomite is a mineral with a chemical compostition of Zinc and Iron. The Titanium was used to reduce the weight.

Leela didn't want to mention her problem to anyone, because she didn't know whether it was curable or not, and if she asked for help then it would be out in the open and Fry would hear about it - this would be terrible if it turned out Leela's ears were irreplaceable. It was far easier to bottle it up inside, as is Leela's way.

Bender's ass has sentimental value, so he would naturally be distraught to realise that it was gone.

The only problem with that explanation is that dolomite is calcium magnesium carbonate (CaMg(CO3)2).

The small version of Zoidberg occurs after the larval stages. The chronitons just sent him back to an earlier stage.

The small television is because they're watching Human shows from 1000 years ago, and the newer televisions can't pick up those primitive media methods.

Zapp took credit for what other people did, for instance when Kiff saved the Bugalow he got all the credit. Simple as that.

Because although bender doesnt admit it becuase it might make him seem snooty, he has a transporter that transports it to a near by location. That or his really good at cramming like a teenages bedroom.

Bag of Holding. Or the teenage stuff mentioned above (hell, I can do it, so why shouldn't Bender be able to).

And another thing- I think I had some wires crossed when I replied to Mouse On Venus' "Pepsi" question. What I would have said if I had been sane at the time is something along the lines of DanMan's post. Commercialization made the core fans shun the new episodes and the religion arises around the old classics. But that doesn't make sense either, because the forbidden words Star Trek are included in the title of the newer licensed Pepsi episodes, so if anybody could explain that...

Treatment for the hearing impaired may have moved on one thousand years but so to would have evil deafening technologies.

How come when we saw Bender being made and a photo of him when he was just three months old he appeared just as he does now but when he was "de-aged" his size and appearance changed?

Sounds can travel through space. You can't, however, and therefore you don't believe they can.

 When he was made, he was as small as he was at the Fountain Of Aging in TMLH, but he was inside the body of a 4 year old Bender. As time went on, he grew into his bigger body. Then, when he fell into the tar pits, because he'd grown snugly into his bigger body, it shrunk when he did.

New question: why does Nibbler have to erase Fry's memory in TWOF when last time something like that happened, nobody believed him or cared what he had to say anyways?

Because at that time Leela was feeling affectionate towards Fry after her failed date and would have belived Fry.

Or possibly so Fry would give the flower to the Leela because them being together would be an Important part of them conquering the Brains. and that puts them a step closer.

Because when Leela became a superhero she told her parents and so on and so forth it quickly became well-known. If it would become rumored that Fry was going to save the universe, the brains would find out and manipulate some way of eliminating him.

Thus it'd be safer if he did not know.

The horn transmits electromagnetic waves which are picked up by antennae on the other ships and translated into sounds which can be heard through speakers inside the ships.  Kinda like how your radio works.

The tar alters his "RNA" which changes his appearance to seem younger. The bacteria in the tar, however, are only acustomed to humans, so it changed his RNA to make him appear to age downwards as a human would.

of course, that leaves out the fact that he turns into blueprints.
wait... wait... got it!

when he cant appear to de-age anymore, his RNA tells him to change into his pre-birth forms, of the blueprint disc or whatever it was.  flirt

they're aliens. do aliens have to make sense? no...

or, if you want a more interesting answer:

all mass has it's own gravitational pull, small though it may be. as bender was fired from the ship, a small amount of oxygen went with him, just enough that the shrimpkins could breathe for a few days, until they all kill each other.

there could also be water from humidity etc. Also maybe spaceships have horns so they can use them when they are traveling over a planet etc. like when they are travelling around earth.

My question;- Why did they design robots to feel pain? + why did they design robots to look nothing like humans?

They feel pain to be possible to stop by other means than destruction in case of them going rampant.
They look nothing like humans because the robots designed for working causes were built to most efficiently serve the conditions they could come to serve while they perform their tasks. The robots with no real working cause were products of their designers imaginations, how they wanted them to look. Mind you, there are bots specifically designed to look like humans..
Actually, I thought many of them looked very similar to humans.

So that they'll know to avoid situations that will cause harm or destruction.  Or else it's a bug.

Nuclear winter cancelled it out for a while, but the effects of nuclear winter would fade overtime while global warming would not, so eventually it became a problem again and they had to use the Hailey's comet solution.

They are fimiliar with the concept, just not the name, and that's why Leela asked wouldn't it be better if the "wheels" were round, implying that they would be like *insert fancy name here*s if they were round.

In reguards to Bender's de aging, When bender is on the production line in Bendless Love he cries like a baby, at that stage his electronic brain was essentially that of a human infant.

When Bender was hooked up to "Bending School" it gave him the equivelent of a childhood and all else that people have growing up. This would also explain how he went to high school with the whaler robot on the moon, and how he also went to bending state bending college (State Robot Colleges are too funding cut to have physical campuses).
So the chronotons were simply returning bender to the states his AI was in at an earlier date.

Our universe is not completely dark. There are still stars, planets, and other particles of matter floating around in space. The pink stuff in the sky was probably just the inverse color of all this.
