He travelled back in time hundreds of times, going to eras as far back as ancient Egypt. So he's more likely to 100000 years old at the very least.

Plus, humans have been producing beer since at least 5000 B.C. So it existed, but still I doubt he could have just gone out in public and acquired it with ease. Especially when he was in the Roswell desert for 1000 years as just a robot head.

If we're counting time in a time machine, Bender's more than twice the age of the universe.

Definitely not. Clearly time passes by in the time machine much slower.

DXC could give you a stern lecture about how computers and robots are not the same thing! (Though Bender has slept and referenced an on/off switch in I, Roommate...)

I just stepped out of my time machine... Also, I ran out of beer. big grin

Bender has lived since nearly The Big Bang since he time-traveled all those times using the time-sphere. I wouldn't count The Late Philip J. Fry since they never really stayed on Earth for all that time.

Frys like old too because he was froze for 1000 years and he still existed
in thoses 1000 years, So frys probably old too.

Other forums I've been on used to get angry about people double-posting. This one mentioned it in the rules page when I just signed up. Didn't you take a few minutes to read it?

Also, time spent in stasis (cryogenic or time-machine or temporal) doesn't count for age. Chronology, perhaps, but not age, which is a measure of the individual's experience of the passage of time.

All excellent points, Vile. And I suspect Fry-Azel hasn't read the rules or has read them and chooses to disregard them, based on the number of its posts I've deleted in the past few days. Think I'll get rid of that double post of his now, actually.

I think no double-posting is the essential rule to PEEL.

Don't forget that his head is another 1055 years older than the rest of his body. In "Roswell That Ends Well" Bender's head gets left behind in 1947 and is recovered in 3002.

Edit- in my lack of coffee and Christmas present wrapping daze it wasn't until I posted that I noticed this was pointed out earlier.  sleep

Since all of his body parts were created at the same time, they are the same age. The fact that he traveled back in time doesn't make him any older, because he was still created at the same time.

No, but the fact that Bender's head "lived" through those 1055 years while his body traveled instantly forward in time skipping those years makes the difference.

As far as his memories and experiences go, yes, but if we're just discussing his age, I think that's irrelevant.

If you think it as difference between current time and birth, yes, but aging really is the changes happening over time (depends on the "path"). His body as well as others go through that wormhole or whatever and from their perspective they age only seconds. According to Bender's head time passed thousand years, according to others time passed few seconds. It's relevant.

Alternatively:
Chronology, perhaps, but not age, which is a measure of the individual's experience of the passage of time.

Fair point. I was talking about chronology, then, not age. Sorry about that.
