Also if the robot devils pitchfork was hot enough to melt the floor wouldn't it melt Bender's eyes out. It happened before when bender jumped into lava to save Fry's dog.   confused


Nope. Carpets are scorched at much lower temperaturs than lava, a few hundred C's would do it, while lava is around 800-1200 C. Bender's eyes can withstand 100-200 C, as witnessed in "Fry and the Slurm Factory"

In the episode where Fry, Leela, Amy, Zoidberg follow Beck in the Voltswagen hippy van a map is showed on the screen of the United States, but there is one state that is written in alien language does anyone know what it says.

From the episode guide at tv.com:

Alien code: While following the bus on its way to San Francisco, they past through several states with odd names. One of them is written in Alien Code #1. Instead of staying named Utah, Utah has been changed to: "Human Farm." If you look hard in both The Simpsons and in Futurama, the crew takes many shots (at least 2) at Utah every season in both shows.

Hope that helps.

I was watching "Jurassic Bark" and noticed that Robo Puppy's voice was very similar to Rudy's(George's Computer) from the "Jetsons". I was wondering if anyone else noticed that or is it just me.

I wouldn't be surprised if one of the voice actors was able to imitate the original voice (I'm pretty sure I know what you're talking about) and then they possibly put it through a filter to add the metallic(?) effect.

in frye and the slurm factory, bender zaps frye with the f ray to look inside his body.  Frye Yells 'Ow my sperm!' and then when bender does it again he says 'huh, it didnt hurt that time'.  Doesnt that mean frye is steril?  Then later in Insane in the Mainframe, frye is zapped with enough gamma rays to get his stomach boiling.  That would definately finish the job.  How then, does frye make himself his own grandfather?

In addition to what Venus said (I only get the regular Discovery Channel anyway), Parasites Lost aired between Fry and the Slurm Factory and Roswell That Ends Well.  The simple solution would be to assume the worms fixed Fry's groin while they were improving everything else about him. While Insane in the Mainframe aired after Parisites Lost, there is no proof he was completely sterilized on the conveyor belt.

The fist one I can think of is in "When Aliens Attack," Earth's TV takes 1000 years to reach Omicron Persei 8. However, when the Omicronians contact Earth, they hear their voices seconds later on their TV. Shouldn't they only see themselves in 1000 years?

 yeah but most of the ships in futurama can travel at more than light speed and still send messages so t must be possible to send a quick message  eek

Nope, none of the ships travel faster than the speed of light, and hence they can still use regular electromagnetic communications.

The speed of light, now that's an entirely different story all together.

i was watching bender gets made on [as] tonight and noticed something a bit odd.  bender volunteers to burn down the ship during the scene where the robot mafia hijacks the planet express ship.  Don bot gives bender the go-ahead, and then the mobsters all get in their spaceship and fly off, leaving bender stranded on a ship he's supposed to destroy.

This may have came up before, but, in Bendless Love, why doesn't the Beard magnet make Bender sing like a folk singa?

Oh, and by the way, nothing that carries matter (a ship for example) can (or ever will be able to) travel ANYWHERE NEAR the speed of light.

The Beard Magnet is not affixed to Bender's forehead, which is where his brain unit is located (containing the inhibition chip that is affected by magnets). It is affixed to the chin. Therefore neither this, nor the magnetic bow tie from A Flight To Remember would affect his fine singing voice.

not quite true Dan.  Theoretically you should be able to get infinitely close to the speed of light, it would just take unbelievable amounts of energy.  Matter flowing out of the poles of quasars gets up to .99c by stealing energy from the quasar's magnetic field.

In Roswell that ends well Leela wears sunglasses to hide her huge eye, but then later on she's standing outside Mildred's house with no disguise at all, and the paper boy rides by.  I guess people are too tired to detect cyclopes in the early morning.

there have also been theories from caltech where they have accelerated light particles through some inate gas mixture? and had it travel exponentially faster, i'm not really clear on this, but i'm sure someone here can further explain it

i havent really read this thread through yet, so if it is what it says it is, then i got a goof to post, and if not, my apoligiez

in A Flight To Remember, bender takes off his bow-tie and says it is magnetic, i was made to believe all magnets screwed w/ his mind to make him a folk singer and why wasnt he folk singing the entire time he was wearing it?

this mistake happens in many animated shows including bendin' in the wind (i think that is the name) and it is easy to understand but it still bothers me. whenever a '67 or earlier bus is drawn they always have the V shape on the nose but they show it as having one large bay window instead of the two smaller split windows. and they always show a sliding door instead of two swing out doors. i know a sliding door was optional on the early models but it is very rare.

i had the same idea with Bender's magnetic beard. it seems it only effects them if it is magneted to the forehead (where his brain is)

like offered by another poster, it seems it's implied that magnets only bother him when they're in the vicinity of his "head"

the bow tie and the goatee were both found under the chin...

here's a big goof that I dont think anyone's mentioned before.  In 'A tale of two santas', as Bender flies the sleigh around santa's death fortress right after the elf song, he flies in front of the moon.  The EARTH moon.  Oops!

In Bendin' in the Wind the speedometer only goes up to 80, and it probably went even slower than that because of all the smoke pouring out of it. So how do they keep up with Beck's tour bus? By the time they'd get there Beck and co. would probably already be two states over.

Yea, I was kind of wondering about that Beck-mobile followed by the VW van as well, but I think that Beck just loves his groupies so much that he travelled really slow and even through tunnels instead of flying there.

@Nerdbeard:

I hope you do realize that that quote of Kryten you posted is nearly 3 months old. I mean he still posts, and his point is still valid, but still it is really old information.  wink

Quite simple.

Freezers doesn't produce coldness, they simply remove the heat inside a closed area. Everytime you open a freezer, you let in heat which the engine then have to remove.

Anyway, if you took ocean water and froze it, all you would achieve was to transfer heat from one part of the planet (the ocean) to another part (the atmosphere). Once you dumped the ice into the oceans it would melt, cooling the water around it, The cold water would then absorb more heat from the atmosphere. The net result would be an increase of the Earths temperature. Although the circle of heat between the water, the freezer, the ice and the atmopshere would cancel eachother out, the electricity used to freeze the water would result in more greenhouse gases and excess heat at the powerplant.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!
