If the Cryosomething Lab existed in 1999, shouldn't it be down under New New York with all the other ruins of Old New York? Unless for some reason they decided to move the entire lab with all the frozen people inside one year and nothing else from the old city.

You saw Space Pilot 3000, the cryogenics lab didn't get destroyed by aliens when the rest of the city was.

Darn, I forgot about that.
That brings up the question of why the aliens left the cryogenics lab alone whilst destroying the rest of the city, though.

I assume the Nibblonians were somehow protecting the building.

They mentioned this interesting topic on the commentary of Space Pilot 3000, I hope they actually bring this topic into the light and reveal an actual reason why the Cryogenics lab was left as this could be another "exciting twist" to the already complex storyline of Futurama     smile.

Plus I am a big fan of the whole Fry being the saviour of the universe story development (Hence my avatar and signature) and hope that the Nibblonian's (It has to be them     big grin) in some way stopped the aliens from attacking the lab, to further expose the knowledge of the mysteries surrounding Fry's position in this very important roll (Also including "the other" topic, which I hope is revealed aswell xD)

Brain: It appears we are in the presence of the fabled one, but without his Scooty-Puff Jr he cannot escape ha ha ha, huh!

Brain: A quantum-interphase bomb, are you insane in the membrane!?

Fry: You got it poindexter!

I often wondered about that question myself, and I do like the idea of the nibblonians protecting him.  Hopefully there will be answers to come!

Everyone's assuming that Applied Cryogenics is actually in New York. I've looked around New York. There's no Applied Cryogenics. It could be just outside New York, perhaps, I haven't checked there. But it's definitely not in New York, definitely not, no, no.

Also, just as a side note, Cryogenics is not the right word for it. Cryogenics is the study of freezing embryos and whatnot.

Cryonics is the word that means the science of freezing people.

Wrong, actually. Cryogenics are the branches of physics and engineering that study very low temperatures. How to produce them, how materials behave at them, so forth.

However, you are right in that the preservation of humans and animals via very cold temperatures is called cryonics. But you are omitting the term cryobiology for some reason, which is basically the study of low temperatures on organisms for the purpose of cryopreservation, which is almost synonymous with the aformentioned cryonics.

However, the Applied Cryogenics company is probably more than just supplier of cryopreservation on demand. Most likely, cryobiology is merely a supplemental profit generator that is somewhat related to the main subject matter which is actually studied there, which is actually cryogenics. This would explain the neglectance with which the freezer tubes were treated by the staff.

This is me, with my pseudointelligence, telling it as it is.

No, Im pretty sure its more of a

Cryonics Lab then a Cryobiology Lab

Cryobiology is essentially the study of cryonics. To tell you the truth, your above post is more pointless than the offspring of the village idiot and a TV weathergirl.

Fight it, Xanfor. Fight it. Crusade against the tide of nonsense even as it rises around you.

I'd like to throw in my two totalpenceuk's worth here.

Cryonics, Cryobiology, and cryogenics are all synonymous. You don't normally do one without touching on the other.

Cryonics is an umbrella term that covers all things related to the study of very cold temperatures and their effect on living and nonliving materials. Usually related to some kind of process which preserves perishables for future use.

Decapodian, Xanfor's post in reply to yours contesting the use of the word "cryogenics" was an excellent and informative post. It contained all the information that you needed in order not to make yourself look stupid when discussing this. Instead, you managed to grab hold of the wrong end of a stick that nobody had even handed to you. Way to go!

Ya, give me back my stick, Deca! I was using it to hurt you!

1). It's "yer mom", not "your mother". Ask Ninaka for further clarification.

2). It was pointless and out of context, therefore spam.

3). You're doing a lot of this sort of thing.

4). You spelled "maybe" wrongly.

5). Anybody who posts on PEEL on a regular basis (myself included) can hardly tell anybody else to "get a life". Hypocrisy is vile and damnable.

6). You're an idiot. It is a reasonable assumption to make that you are incapable of meaning anything as a joke, and were in fact being arsey. Or even, an arsie.

7). Stop spamming and get back on topic, or take it to the rant thread (which I'm not going to linkify, you can bloody well search for it, n00b).

I bet it's in Jersey and the aliens didn't bother, being as how it probably looked to be in ruins to begin with. Alright, I have not actually been to north NJ and south NJ is pretty cool as far as I've seen, I'm just going by what I've heard some Jersyites say about their own state!

It could be that the nibblonians prevented the aliens destoying the lab somehow. As Fry was the most important person in the universe, well, dunno really. Smartasses

@Tnuk: I quote "your mother" from Obsoletely Fabulous. Out of all the foums i post on, this is by far the most unfriendly. There are certain inderviduals (yourself) that don't give a toss for other people and have a very nasty attitude.

I'm sorry if i was spamming, so i'll have to try be a more relevant person...

 remeber that in the episode with pauly shore and fry's ex girlfriend from the past......fry and his ex girlfriend now present day grilfriend in the future (kind of confusing)   =)  they froze themselves wher they thought 1000 years but ended up going in pauly shores tube....and they removed the tube from the lab and put it near the theatre.....so maybe just maybe ...i actually had a point but i lost it mid statement....ill repost the second half when it comes to me but still...ya

I agree that the Cryogenics lab was protected by Nibblonians. Creatures of such enormous power and adorability should be able to fend off a few nuclear wars and apocalyptic alien attacks.

If they missed several buildings, the buildings still there would still have been covered by NNY, since NNY was built above the remains (and whatever was on the same ground as) Old New York.

Unless there's something I'm missing.

@PJF: Also take into account Phillip.J.Fry that it could have been a building built after the Earth was basically destroyed. Or perhaps, they had rebuilt it, but soon closed afterwards, the end result being the tatty building in The Honking.
@Xanfor: I applaud to you and your scientificness. Way to sock it to us.  wink

The Applied Cryogenics building is different on the outside in 1999 than it is in 3000 so it is probably just the top floors of the building that sticks out above the new street level. So presumably Fry would be on the same floor but closer to the ground.
