Why do robots get arrested for not drinking?
I know a Robot not drinking is the equalivent of a human being drunk, but what if a robot didn't have any money? How's he s'ppossed to buy alcohol?

Remember, judge Whitey ruled that being poor was a mental illness, so they are put under arrest and then sent to a mental institution if they are poor.  smile

Robots don't get arrested for not drinking.  Robots get arrested for not drinking while flying spaceships.

Yes, it is.

It's still a robot getting arrested for something he can't afford to do.

Did anyone force him to fly the space ship, while not under influence?

No? Thought so.

I can't afford to get a pilot license, hence I chose not to commandeer large, comercial jet-liners. If I did take control of one, I would get arrested too.

Maybe robots get arrested for sober-driving!  Because in the future, since robots run on alcohol and their 'sober' is their equivelant of drunk.

So, do you get why it's okay for a robot to be sober 'cause he's too poor to drink, but NOT okay for him to FLY while he's sober?

I assume if there was some great, contrived situation whereby the sober robot was the ONLY ONE available to fly a spaceship, and if it wasn't flown many other people and robots would certainly die, and he ONLY flew the spaceship to save their lives because the chance of death was better than the certainty of death...then the robot could claim extenuating circumstances and be forgiven for sober flying.

But otherwise, he can always choose NOT to fly.

What if a human didn't have any money? How's he supposed to buy food?

Robot's don't need food. So it's all the more easy to buy alcohal.

Humans needing food is a bigger concern, one that you don't need to be in the future to witness. Something people die without, not just lose their driving priveliges.

Robot's do jobs more sufficiently then human, so if they can't make enough money to buy alcohal, or mineral water for that matter, then that's pretty bad.

Choices: Homeless shelter (as seen in Xmas Story)
OR
Suicide Booth! Yay!

And the here and now isn't?

How often has Bender gone on a sober-bender?

Are other robots as dastardly (and bastardly) as Bender?

Man, that would have been a great topic to explore on the show...

Bender has been sober a couple of times,

-I, Roomate
-Obsolutely Famous, if that counts
-We've been over this, but Roswell That Ends Well
-Birdbot of Ice Catraz

It's not illegal to be drunk in public is it?
Just as long as you don't drive/fly/w/e
so same thing for robots.

yes, it is illegal to be drunk in public, but only if you are causing a disturbance. or if a cop doesn't like the way you look.

Uh, robots fuel cells run on alcohol. When their power levels get low they malfunction (act drunk). Several episodes explain this phenomena.

Not all robots have traditional 31st century fuel cells. Some of them like the robots we see in Obseletely Fabulous, run on water etc. And robot 1X runs on pollution and emits a scent of lavendar or some fragrance like that

That is a good question Spy. It is probably only for the religious type robots. That or any sane robot would stick to alcohol.

Well the cops that have arrested bender for undrinking are complete dopes. are they going to make a judged and thought out decision?

and to question their brains even further remember the lines
"I guess this is why chief says no hugging"
"Ahhh baby why set off before you put it back"
"Dont try anything this glass is laserproof"

Knowing bender, he probably wont get arrested for that! He never gets arrested only like 3 or 4 times. He stole all of his life,He always do drugs,He smokes cigars(alot), and he only got arrested 3 or 4 times, he is lucky.
