Dude, if you stab a hole in an aerosol deodorant, it'll take your hand clean off and that has nothing to do with sparks. Pure pressure.

Also, oil doesn't ignite all that easily, it burns slowly, and won't be very likely to explode. That's why it's used for heating. If it was voloatile wnough to ignite and go off with a *whoomphgphrrr!!!11*, then it wouldn't really be all that efficient, would it.

Plus it's lubricant oil. Meaning it's a heavy oil, making it even harder to ignite, than crude oil and lighter products such as diesel. Afterall how many garage incident with exploding cans of WD-40 have you heard off? Liquid diesel wont ignite asily by sparks, you need open flames.

To further complicate matters, it's the combination of vapour and air that makes a specific oil-product flamable. Another reason why Fry didn't explode.

First point: what everyone else said.  And like Teral said, it's difficult to get even fuel oils to burn.  And to get diesel to explode, as in an engine, it requires a very high compression ratio (which in and of itself heats the diesel significantly).  It's unlikely you'll get any kind of lubricating oil to support combustion -- it would require a steady, hot flame to keep it burning. 

Second point: Fry ate the anchovies in mid season 1.  He thought he was a robot in late season 3.  Seeing how he long since digested the anchovies, it's unlikely their oil was on his mind.  Plus, he never knew that anchovies made great robot oil, so it wouldn't have mattered.

There would be no explosion.  The contents are not under pressure, along with what everyone else said about lubricants being not especially flammable in comparison to other petrochemicals.

Ok. Here's something else to ponder. Everyone knows that Fry's last name is Fry, so, natually, when they call him "Mr. Fry" it makes sense. However, Bender's last name isn't Bender, so, whenever they call him "Mr. Bender" it's out of context. Wouldn't it make more sense to call him "Mr. Rodriguez", especially in court (which is where they refer to him outside of work) when they obviously have his case file with his full name?

Are you sure that Bender's last name is really Rodriguez?  He said that it was, but that doesn't necessarily make it true.

In the Single Female Lawyer episode, they explain that omocron persei 8 is 1000 light years away, and that it takes 1000 years for the signal to get there despite the increased speed of light because it's 'old light'

However, why would the professor say that Omocron Persei 8 is 1000 light years away if the light year has changed?  Shouldnt it be fewer light years away, if the light year got longer?

Nah.  The speed of light was increased, but the length of a light year hasn't changed.  That's cartoon logic for you.

Also, the bit about changing the speed of light was from a later episode.  They hadn't come up with it yet at the time.  They don't actually plan that far ahead.

David X Cohen said in one of the commentaries that science is important in the show, but it shall not outweigh humour. In other words, the bit about the speed of light being changed is simply a joke, and that you shouldn't take any of it too seriously.

I dont know if this has been posted before, and seeing how its 6 am i really dont have time to read through the 9 pages and search the entire forums, so i'll just post it and hope it hasn't been posted before, in which case feel free to flame me.
in I, Roommate, when Fry is turning off the alarm clock and hits bender's antenna, it looks like half of the table or more has noone sitting at it (not quite sure how to put that, english being my secondary language), but when it zooms out we see the entire crew sitting around the table with only 1 chair not in use.
I realize that this is important to the surprise of seeing that they're having a meeting while he's sleeping on the table, but they could just have zoomed out less in the first scene or something.

edit: i just realized something else, in "A flight to remember" bender has a magnetic bow tie, while he says in "episode two: the series has landed" that magnets mess up his "inabition" (spelling :S) unit, which causes him to start singing folk songs. he also starts singing folk songs because of magnets in other episodes suck as "Bendin' in the wind", yet it seems to have no effect in "A flight to remember".

Well I'm the robotic prince of darkness and you're some sort of moron.

Only magnets on Bender's head wreck his inhibition unit, the bow tie is on his body.

well i dont remember him mentioning the head when he was explaining it in episode two, but that would explain the whole thing so i'll take your word for it =P

edit: noticed another goof in "The Honking". When they go to destroy Project Satan the sky and the moon can be seen in the scene that shows the abandoned Chrysler building, but wouldn't that building be underground in old new york since it's been there for a thousand years?

I was watching the "Farnsworth Parabox" the other day and I had a question about the Hippie Universe.    The Professor tells "Professor Freaksworth" that there is a whole universe in the box.  My question is how was this box created in the Hippie Universe, if Hippies don't do anything.

Was it in NNY, though? Other cities might have escaped demolition.

A common misconception.  Hippies do indeed do things (besides have sex, take drugs, and play rock & roll), but they aren't prompt on the follow-through.  Thus Prof. Freaksworth made the box, but hadn't investigated it, destroyed it, or created any more...yet.

He'd've gotten around to it eventually.  When he was back in the right headspace, man...

heres one that kinda bugs me, and im not sure if anyone has brought this up...
in roswell that ends well we learn that bender's head is buried in the sand for 1053 (ish) years, now, does that mean that the bender in space pilot doesnt know fry already? or should he have the memory because he knew fry in the past (before his birth) or are there just 2 instances of bender'
s head, where one knows fry and the other doesnt?

Well of course since time travel is impossible there is no correct theory as to exactly how it works and what the consequences would be, only many theories that may or may not be true (or maybe none of them are since time travel is impossible) and therefore that question can't really be answered.
But i would think that Bender in SP3K wouldn't already know fry, and just do everything like it did right up until it got ported to the past, and then they would in an instant go back to the past and come back to the future, and then go dig up Bender's head and put it on his body, that they brought back to the future with them.
There might be some errors about the episode as I lost that disc a few months ago and havent seen that episode in ages   cry

all i said was that there was no one correct theory for time travel since it was impossible so there is no standard to use when we deal with it, that doesn't mean we can't imagine and that's exaclty what i did when i answered him.

I don't get your question.  Space Pilot Bender's head would have no way of knowing that Roswell Bender's head is buried half a continent away...after all, he has no access to Roswell Bender's thoughts and memories. (Roswell Bender's head is presumably inactive, but even if it were switched on and running, Roswell Bender couldn't transmit far enough to communicate with his younger self. )

Why do you think the fact that the two heads exist in the same time frame means that they automatically share memories?  Bender's never shown any signs of being the robot version of a telepath....

Edit: And yes, Pikka Bird, what's the dealeo with dissing Professor Hawking?  You jealous because he gets all the babes?

@HellsCream: A scientist will NEVER say "this/that is impossible". Especially not something that we (as in "the human species as such) have only just begun to delve into, and so far know next to nothing about.

@I: Well, I dislike his stubborn refusal to acknowledge when he himself and his guru Einstein are proven wrong. His methods are the science equivalent of covering your ears and going "LALALALALALAAA I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!".

Besides, anyone who believes the current popular theory of wormholes are bound to be hollowskulls.

Well i have a few things to say,
Im not sure how experienced anyone here is, and i am most certainly NOT an authority on time travel physics, but i have discussed it with my physics teacher at great length. The truth of it is, according to einstein, time travel is possible, throough the use of worm holes, and black holes (although worm holes were invented after einstein died). The two ends of the worm holes are held by a person, one person will stay on earth, where the second person will hop into their spaceship, and take the other end of the wormhole around a close orbit of a black hole. time will be altered for the person around the black hole. when he returns to earth, his time is slowed down enough that the person that remained on earth will have taken time normally, and now have a wormhole that he can use to access the past. this is only a theory, and without the technology it is impossible as of yet. but theoretically sound. (for a great movie on the subject (string theory), watch the elegant universe found here for free http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/elegant/)

now i say that the two instances of bender will share memories because they are made out of completely identical parts. the true question is, will the parts that are made be a copy of the existing parts....as you can see this creates quite a debate.
