I really don't care if this thread gets closed or not. But would you be a head-in-a-jar and see the future go by for 1,000 years or frozen and technically be dead meat? My votes are for the head.  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/tongue.gif">

Frozen. I mean, really, so what of I'm not doing anything whilst I'm in the tube, once I'm out, I'll a least have full control of my many and varied apendeges...

Really, I can't imagine the advantages of being a head without a body... where would the cannon go?   <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/confused.gif">

"As a head without a body, I envy the dead."
"No son, its a sad and lonely life."

These two statements alone make me opt for being frozen. It'll feel like no time at all and I won't have to watch as people I know die.

Read the sig!

yup, what he said.

Being dependant on someone else to feed you fish food would suck.. just look as Max from Xmas Story. I'd much rather be an icepop than a floating decapicated head.

.. I didn't ask you for a completely reasonable excuse, I asked you to get busy..

I'd want to be frozen, people live to be like 300 years old in the future anyway.

As a head you wouldn't get to do things like:
-Ride a T-rex
-Move around and explore freely.
-Get new hands and "break" them in.
-Make love to hooker bots.
-Test the latest in suicide booth technology.
-Experiment with being a robosexual.
-Ride in the transport tubes.
-Find bigfoot (if he exists).

Depends, If I was a head could I have a giant robot body to go with it? If not, I would probably opt to be frozen.

I 'd have to go with the freezer tude.

But dont ya think that it'd be weird just kinda frozen like that for 1000 years? That'd scare my shitlesss personally.

But it's still better than being just a head...

I want to be a freezer jockey in a freezer doodle so I can wake up in the future-jiggy.I mean,eating fish food? I can't even stand the smell of it! And not having a body would SUCK.Plus I am not a dependent person, so being on a shelf and waiting for feeding time would suck...and feeding time would be the highlight of my day.

I'd rather be frozen.  The best you could do as a head is attach it to a manequin like Beck... what if they downloaded your brain like lucy lui? Frozen seems like the best way to go.   <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Freeze away! I think I prefer the eventual mobility that being frozen provides, as opposed to being unable to do anything but wiggle your bodyless head in a jar of who knows what.

I will be frozen until I'm nearly, then put my head in a jar so that I can live forever.

And one reason for being a head in a jar:

I think I'd rather frozen for one reason- they would have to decapitate you to put your head in a jar- I imagine that would kind of hurt. And what if a moron like Zoidberg was putting your head in a jar and did it wrong and you died (because of the whole decapitation thing)? I am the master of stupid reasons not to become a head in a jar.  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

But what about Richard Nixon? He got a robot monster body. I have to admit, that'd be pretty sweet to have.

Being frozen does have its advantages. If you want to go to a specific time, then why wait?

Yeah, being frozen would go by quick, and t would be pretty boring living 1000 years and having someone carry you areound everywhere. But if you had a monster body like Nixon or a jetpack like Al Gore, you could move. I'm going to have to opt for the freezer.

If I were a head in a jar I would probably get so bored that I would kill myself before I made it to the year 3000.

Although on the other hand, I could be a head in a jar and annoy the hell out of everyone in that head place for 1,000 years.

Nah, frozen.

That just brings up another disadvantage of being a head in a jar.

Of course, on the other hand, if you were a head and had a robot body, you wouldn't have to ask all these questions about what has happened over the years.

Assissted suicide. I could annoy someone until they agreed to kill me. Either that or I could refuse to eat.

Or, you could shake your jar around from a very high ledge and fall and hope your head will cut somethin' bad.

Frozen, no doubt about it. If the future is anything like it is in Futurama, I would get along very well in that world. I'm a lot like Fry in that respect.

Although, being a head on a robot body would be cool, but it would look silly. I would just want my brain put into a computer and then make me a full fledged robot!

I'd like to be frozen. Honestly, who would want to be alive forever but unable to do anything at all? The best alternative is a human brain inside a robot body.

I wouldn't mind being a head-in-a-jar on a robot. Since they don't seem to age, it has its benefits. I don't really believe life will be worth living in 1000 years time realistically from what damage people are doing to it now and the atmosphere, it will probably be a death hole.

Head inna jar. I'd sell my body (literally), and with the money I'd get several different attachments for the jar, like robotic arms (like in BITW)and jetpack (like in COTH).

The thought of being basically immortal appeals to me.

Oh sure, blame the wizards...

Head-in-a-jar... just seems more cosy. Plus it's nice to drop off, or chop off however you look at it, all that weight at once.

Frozen of course! A head in jar maybe later.

mhh, come to think of it: No way. I never want to be a head in a jar. Imagine to rest in the head museum, beeing there to "share your wisdom with those who seek it", but you won't learn anything more, cos your surrounded by other heads having the same troubles. Eating fishfood, and being watched by buches of people on Tuesdays (when entering the museum is free), who don't care a bit of you, because you're from a time long ago. And that for all eternity, heads in jar have immortality, as far as I know.

I want to get frozen.

Technically, that'd be murder.Unless you told someone to dump in a full bottle of aspirin , wait for it to dissolve, and suck in as much...uh...whatever that liquid thing is as you can.And I don't get how the heads can eat, because they don't have any stomachs.

Good point. I think they only ever show heads eating flakes (like fish food), but I may be wrong. Personally I couldn't live without being able to eat real food! I’d much rather be frozen so that I wouldn’t have to wait around for centuries in a jar!

I believe they said in one of the DVD commentaries it is Formaldehyde (whatever that is), but don't quote me on that! Oh wait do, it's on 'I dated a robot' when they are talking about Madeline Albright (is it that???)!
