I only found this amusing with the things that are happening around the world.  But in "Luck of the Fryish" when they revisit Fry's home, Fry explains that his dad built a bomb shelter in case of a nuclear war.  Leela's response was "that's rediculous, there was never any nuclear war."  At times like this, I hope so badly that she's right.

The correct quote is:
Leela: "And yet, you guys never had a single nuclear war."
Bender: "What a vaste."

Implying that there has been nuclear wars, just not in the early 21st century. But live long enough, and they'll come.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

In X-mas story, Leela tells that nuclear winter cancelled out global warming.

Meh. We don't know what kind of stuff this is caused by. Maybe global warming was caused by something else.

Don't worry.  Everything's gonna be fine... probably.  *cough*  Anyway, Luck of the Fryrish was a *great* episode!  n___n  The ending made me cry!  :x

The whole "dad building a bomb shelter" thing reminded me a lot of that one movie "Blast from the Past" with Brandon Fraser and Alicia Silverstone.   big grin

But in "A Big Piece of Garbage," Mayor Poopenmeyer states that global warning was a myth, like second hand smoke.

And, is it really "Luck of the Fryrish"? I don't think so.

Lol, I stand corrected twice in one thread.  It makes sense as aslate says.  Fryrish, Irish.. However, I just find Fryish easier to roll off my tongue.  But you wouldn't find me saying "I-ish"  smile

I always thought it was Fryish, too. And typing both up on Google, "Fryish" returns 470 results while "Fryrish" returns 509 resutls. Crazy..

Yeah, but that was a long time ago.  Not even *I* know anything about my great, great, (many greats later) relatives, except that I'm related to two presidents, but that's pretty much it.  Besides they think that Yancey (sp?) changed his name so that it's Philip J. Fry... simple mistake.  *shrug*

Yeah, hence the "my nephew" in A Clone of My Own.

Futurama ALWAYS contradicts itself when it comes to the 20th century....  If you look through all the RE-CHECK threads, you'll notice it over and over!

Hmm, no. I don't think so.

Look at it this way: it happened almost 1000 years ago on a backwater, desolate planet who's value is just slightly above Utha's. In the year 3000 going to other planets is a rather common and mundane thing, so it's not looked at as something special, certainly not worthy of going into schoolbooks.

To compare: we all know who invented the printing press, but do anyone know who invented the stamp?

If ancient astronauts are mentioned in NNY schoolbooks at all, Yuri Gargarin (first man in space) and Neil Armstrong (first man on another celestial body) would be better candidates.

Amy is the only one who might have heard about this, as part of ancient history in Martian elementary schools. But then again, Amy can be rather ditzy and ignorant at times (stop hitting me Kryten!!).

Way to sink my theory in one shot Nix.

Okay, lets try and salvage this wreck. Uuhm, Hermes is a bureaucrat and as such it's part of his job to have a photographic memory and an interest for obscure facts everybody else have long since forgotten.

Well Teral, Hermes knows more than just one obscure fact.  For instance:

Just because I seem to like arbitrarily resurrecting dead and buried threads so I can change the subject instead of starting a new topic, did anyone ever translate the billboard from the racetrack in this episode?  I've never been able to find a good enough framegrab or picture, but this is the one I'm talking about:

 http://www.gotfuturama.com/cgi-bin/imageview.cgi?/Multimedia/FrameGrabs/3ACV04/Grabs/pic00065.jpg

Someone must have a translation, or at least a better framegrab so I can translate it.

A subject that should have gotten 1 reply, "Yes, i hope so to", gets more than 20 replys with many offtopics and it dosen't get closed? Mods? Are you discussing something or what? It's spamparadise...

Also every reply is offtopic because I'm uncertain if you can reply ontopic to this.

I also don't consider my post spam because I'm asking you a question.

First off - why didn't you bitch about this thread 4 months ago, when it was relevant?

Second off - Don't tell me how to do my job, which I've been doing since four months before you joined.

Third - It died less than a week after being opened.  I know!  Let's go and close ALL of the small, old, dead threads!  It'll be fun, and I certainly don't have a life/anything better to do.  ::Sarcasm meter explodes::  ::Heads off to work::

Fourth - the only SPAM I see is your post.  At least all the other ones have some relevancy to something, you're only bitching.

OK, if you mean the one right at the front, I think it says (and again, I may be wrong)

"NOT WITHOUT MY EGG C*UE - TONIGHT ON LIFETIME"

Where the asterix is - I can't make out that letter - as far as I can tell it could be a G, K, P or W.  But it might not be any of those. I'm afraid that's the best I can do!

Sorry to get off topic.

Fair enough - I couldn't really make it out.  There's another AL1 poster further up in another shot, but it's so far off and fuzzy, I don't have a hope in hell of figuring it out.

Yes, that would make it a reference to "Not Without My Daughter".
