Okay, so on the Infosphere it says this about Fry falling into the Cryotube:

He quickly hits the ground, flips upside down, and finally stops once he hits the inside of the tube. If that had really happened, the beer in the can he's holding would have spilled all over him.

If you spin a bucket of water 'round really fast the water does not fall out. Look at how fast Fry falls into the Cryotube. The Beer wouldn't have fallen out.

You have a point, although I can't say I've ever thought about this in any great detail before...

THEN YOU ARE NOT A NERDLINGER! mad

Nah, I'm kidding, but yeah, if you had to go through all of Futurama's goofs, good luck. Especially with the science ones. no no

Also: http://theinfosphere.org/List_of_Science_Goofs

Also also: Since New New York was built on top of Old New York, the building the cryogenic lab was in should have been underground as well.

This makes me imagine Fry being thawed out in Old New York, can you imagine how that would feel as you stepped outisde. wtf?

I have to pose the question, would his beer now be flat?

More importantly, we saw Bender banging his fist against his crotch-plate in Amazonian Women in the Mood, proclaiming that he had nothing there. So why was crazy old cat woman able to knee him so effectively in Neutopia?

Because dudes getting hit in the junk and then falling over is hilarious, I guess.

No, if the Beer went flat in the Cryotube then I'm sure Fry would be ageing too, making the Cryotube useless...

You are assuming that Fry's speed was the same as the bucket's, though. A human would most certainly fall much slower. Then again this is comedy, so I still wouldn't call that a goof.

I'VE GOT IT.

Ok, so if you tip a full can upside down, the liquid doesn't burst out as fast as it can, it trys to force it's way though the tiny hole, then it starts to gush out. Now look at Fry's beer, it's foaming and dripping a little, showing that a little bit of it has leaked out. Makes sense?

Or perhaps the can had a tiny hole on the side, above the level of the liquid that disappeared after Fry took a drink. If you have a finger on that and then try to turn the container upside down, the pressure from your hand covering the hole makes it harder for liquid to come out. Or something.

I don't know, I never tried it with cans but I did it with my magic sets I had as a kid all the time...I could of course be completely wrong in this instance though.
