in the first Episode when fry watches the knife stab the air it says: "You are now dead, thank you for using stop and drop, the number one suicide booth since 2008"

well I really don't think that the suicide booth will come in a year, do you?

It was pretty funny "you are now dead"

    No; although there are some who might want to use them.

    And... others who'd encourage them to do so...  roll eyes

    • I suggest you use the 'search' function before starting a new thread, as there seem to be a few similar to your subject already.
    • If you've not already, I suggest you read the P.E.E.L. FAQ.

      And most importantly:

    • Welcome to "Nerd-vana!" It's our little corner of the Internet: We call it "P.E.E.L."
    Enjoy your time here! Mind where you step and you'll get along just fine...  wink

    No, but I find it amusing that you seem well-involved in contributing to WiliPEELia, and refer people to it.
    One could easily get the impression you're saying, "Look! Look! See what I've done!"

    Not that I'm accusing you of anything...   big grin

    SpaceCase can see the futureeek   eek   eek

    And the reason I am is because it's becoming the ultimate place to learn about the forum so newcomers don't end up embarrassing themselves. Something I sincerely wish I'd had... Also, I've added a recent news box to the Main Page.  wink

    So, yeah, I'm proud a bit.  cool

    now, about the suicide booth...
    so where did the people who committed suicide go once they died in there anyway?
    (as in did the floor open so the body like falls somwhere) because they never really showed/explained anything much after they said it was made 2008

    I've not found a framegrab of it, but if Lrrr can turn President O'Neal(sp?) into so much ash with a single shot from a hand-weapon, it stands to reason that clearing the "remains" from a suicide booth should be a snap.
    All it would take would be a 'zap', followed by a pan and broom or vacuum cleaner - and we do see a flash of light in the gaps around the booth door.

    Coldy seems to have one thing right though;
    it's a joke.
    Such things don't bear well the analysis we science-fiction geeks subject it to.
    I'll shut up now...

    That's pretty much what I was going to say.  The only real question is why that didn't happen with Fry.  Perhaps you only get the disintegration if you select the "quick and painless" method.

    This is just a guess, but I think beause if the main character died in the pilot, y' wouldn't have much of a series.

    Hm?
    Whazzat? Within the show's continuity?
    Maybe the booth has an internal motion sensor?  confused

    But then, why would the booth say "You are now dead." if it still detected motion?  Wouldn't it keep trying to kill him until it stopped sensing motion?

    This is confusing.

    It probably has an overkill (ha ha) function to ensure the manufacturer doesn't get sued for not providing the advertised service.

    Thermal imaging would be more effective than motion detection.

    It may use transporter technology for the remains since everything in the 31st Century is recycled and the technology isn't usable  for live people.

    I'm sure the Mob finds them very useful as well, regardless of the technology used.

    Maybe, and this might be an idea for a future episode...the suicide booth worked by detecting the delta brain wave activity. Because fry lacked this ( as per the why of Fry ) the machine by default assumed a completed 'execution', bender of course is a robot and wouldn't have had any delta brainwave activity either.

    Fry, help me! My heart stopped beating!

    Bender does have a delta wave, as well as all other animals, robots, and certain trees, except Fry.

    Perhaps his metal casing interfered with the sensor used in the suicide booth!
    I stand by my original proposal, it was great!

    Also that's a crock of shit about robots, trees etc having a delta wave, only human brains emit delta waves thats a scientific fact, Iam willing to accept Fry to be the exception to this rule, for the sake of argument!

    No it isn't. You're making things up.
    Since, A: Sentient robots haven't even been invented yet, so how would you know? It's likely sentience needs to follow a specific blueprint, and all sentient beings, artificial or otherwise, have to be modelled on the same principle.
    And, B: The ability to measure the nerve analogue pulses throughout trees and plants is only just coming into its own as a very new science we know little about.

    A delta wave is a large, slow (2 Hz or less) brain wave recorded with an EEG and is usually associated with deep sleep. FYI. In REAL LIFE, it is only present in adults during deep sleep - when they're awake it is not active. This suggests that the 'Delta Wave' described in the Futurama universe is a FICTIONAL thing - not attributable to any 'scientific fact' you speak of.

    It's a cartoon.

    Precisely

    You guys just love having a go at each other for the sake of it!

    I stand by it though, as a 'fictional idea' the delta wave detector in the suicide booth is great idea and explains the above noted anomalies, albeit with recourse to pseudo science, as Coldy said though it is only a cartoon, a really good one!

    I was really drunk when i claimed it was a 'scientific fact' Also I know what real delta waves are and am aware that the delta wave idea in futurama deviates considerably from the real thing!

    Its not like im the only one here new or not who has tried to support their opinion with a pseudo scientific argument!
