I have been off work sick, giving me plenty of time to think, and rewatch my tapes. I have come up with four important questions.

Please tell me which one (if any) is most deserving of an answer:

How do Heads In Jars poo?

In "When Aliens Attack", the white house appeared on Monument Beach, and was blasted by the saucers, but re-appeared in "A Head in the Polls". what gives?

In X-Mas Story, when Bender sings his "4th day" song, he is wearing a purse on his shoulder, and does not mention it in the song despite it's obvious theft from the scary old woman. As he rounds the corner, the purse disappears. Why?

In "Why Must I be a Crustacean in Love?" Zoidberg states that once his species passes on it's genes, they die. Who teaches all the little crab monsters the ideals and goals of society? Also, why no blood when fry loses the arm?

Fry's lack of blood confuses and befuddles me, but then again, do we really want to see what they did to Homer every ep, it seemed?

It confuse the heck out of me but I have a theory. Zoidberg's can cause chemicals to react over their claws make them searing hot so when it cuts it instantly coterises (I am a bad speller) like in Sleepy Hollow. That or Fry is actually the undead or to be PC the living impared.

Maybe it's a homage to the fact to that alien's arm got looped off by a lightsaber in Star Wars and still had very little blood loss.
Maybe both writing teams overlooked the fact that there would be masses of blood spewing out.  hmpf

Maybe the metal collars around the heads' necks have something to do with keeping them alive and whatnot.

He dropped it, DUH!!!

By a crab teacher, moron!

There are two possible answers I can think of:

1) People like Dr Zoidberg who are ugly don't mate because they can't get a partner and can therefore share their wizdom with the newer generations.

2) Special genes are passed on after the mating process which supply the new generations with the knowledge of their parents.

Another 'Head in a jar' mistery. How do they talk? They have no lungs to push air past their voice-box (If they have that part attached to their neck).

Zoidberg's amputation of Fry's arm: a nice clean cut will often allow blood vessels to be temporarily "sealed" by involunatry muscular contraction, and Zoidy seems to make astonishingly clean cuts. But major arteries? (Luke's wrist, in "Empire," may have simply been cauterized.) Better questions: how did Fry tie off his wound with one hand, and why don't laser wounds in "Star Wars" kill by superheating the victim's blood? Possible "better-question" answers: Fry's used to doing lots of things with one hand, if you know what I mean; blasters may not be lasers as such, but sonic devices with light "tracers." So why not use lasers which would be more effective at killing? Um...never mind.

Who raises the kids? Zoidberg would've probably been assigned several pods of offspring to mentor by now, but he's considered inferior.

Head jars contain all the microtechnology to support and supply air and a voice to the heads contained, and eliminate waste in pellet form. Voice modulators are carefully adjusted to perfectly imitate the original squawkbox. Except for the fact that heads outside of jars--like Nixon in "Space Pilot 3000" when Fry knocks him to the floor--can live and talk. (Reality: head jars are just an ongoing parody of crappy movies that have heads in jars. Look at "They Saved Hitler's Brain"--Der Fuehrer's nog is simply stuck on the bottom of a glass jar with no support whatsoever.)

How do Heads In Jars poo?

 - Those tiny flakes Leonard Nimoy was eating is probably some sort of superconcentrated futuristic food, and the heads make use of it all, so they got no need to...yoo-know. Now peeing, that's an entirely different thing, altogether. Imagine swimming around in your own pee, eeeeewww. Hmmm, better stop the line of thinking right here.

In "When Aliens Attack", the white house appeared on Monument Beach, and was blasted by the saucers, but re-appeared in "A Head in the Polls". what gives?

 - The White House in DC was probably built after the first one was stolen.

In "Why Must I be a Crustacean in Love?" Zoidberg states that once his species passes on it's genes, they die. Who teaches all the little crab monsters the ideals and goals of society? Also, why no blood when fry loses the arm?

  - I agree with Otis. The nerds,  unattractive, and inferior chrustaceans take care of the offspring. Plus there where plenty of elderly lobster-dudes at the beach when Zoidy puts on his erotic display.

The no-blood-thingy is the one most deserving of an answer. I have no readymade explanation right now. But give me a few hours, and it should be there.  big grin

You all have raised good theories, but one thing concerns, and even scares me: Why have so many of you concentrated on the lobstersex bits? It's mating this, mating that, mating the other in this thread  hmpf

Another question: In "Bender Gets Made" how do the robots outside the Donbot's spacelimo talk? sound doesn't travel in vacuum!

And when Bender spews robot chow all over, how is the spray so sustained when he only had a sip?

And why always the fighting? :clack:

What's more interesting: when Clamps caught the PE ship why was it the PE ship that stopped dead, and not the mob car that was pulled along?

And how does Clamps manage to pull the trigger on the machine gun?

I wonder why a head-in-a-jar would eat or drink at all. And where does the food end up?

Answer #1: We're all immature oversexed teenage lobsters.
Answer #2: He's bringing up yesterday's stuff.

It just looked that way.  What really happened was that their relative velocities became the same, so it just *looked* like they came to a stop.  Since the camera was matching speed with the PE ship, it also appeared to come to a stop.  Velocity is relative to the observer.  big grin

In "When Aliens Attack", the white house appeared on Monument Beach, and was blasted by the saucers, but re-appeared in "A Head in the Polls". what gives?

Me: They built another.

In X-Mas Story, when Bender sings his "4th day" song, he is wearing a purse on his shoulder, and does not mention it in the song despite it's obvious theft from the scary old woman. As he rounds the corner, the purse disappears. Why?

Me: He threw it into his stomach

In "Why Must I be a Crustacean in Love?" Zoidberg states that once his species passes on it's genes, they die. Who teaches all the little crab monsters the ideals and goals of society?

Me: It's instinct. How do you think monkeys know how to do junk? or more feasibly, invitro-fertilisation.

Also, why no blood when fry loses the arm?

Me: All his vains were pinched together by johns (sorry, ive just always wanted to say that) claw, resulting in a lack of blood spurting out

Another question: In "Bender Gets Made" how do the robots outside the Donbot's spacelimo talk? sound doesn't travel in vacuum!

Me: They were electronically sending each other speach. the sound was for our sake

And when Bender spews robot chow all over, how is the spray so sustained when he only had a sip?

Me: It was already in his stomach. he "vomited" that robot chow for effect

for the rest, Delta-V hit the nail on the head
