i dont think that your heart has alot to do with the natural chemial reactions and the mitosis of the body cells..... i believe you would slowly lose weight while frozen.....

1: The stomach is designed to withstand the acid it produce, everything else would be stupid. If Fry's stomcah acid had in fact eaten some of his entrails, I doubt he would've survived the experience.

2: Whether his stomach digested something doesn't matter, you absorb nutrients in the intestines, and since the content of his intestines was frozen solid, bam, no absorbtion.

That's ofcourse overlooking the obvious answer, that even Fry's stomach acid was forzen.

No, not directly, but it have everything to do with getting nutrients and oxygen to the cells.

Ofcourse that's overlooking the simple fact that Fry's cells and blood was frozen solid too.

Bottom line: Fry weighs the same before and after being frozen.

Welcome, Trchri!

What you just did is called both bumping and spamming. Bumping is when you ressurect a very old thread. Spamming is when you post something very unimportant, such as "I agree"

Try not to do these things, and enjoy your stay at nerd-world! Please disregard anything TheLampIncedent says, he's a little... odd.

The hell? What does that have to do with anything? Seriously, Wooter, just 'cause you've made TheLampIncident's bad list, doesn't mean that you should go randomly warning new users about him. He rarely posts in the ontopic boards and didn't say anything in this particular thread, so it comes off as completely random and useless to poor Trchri.

At least in this post (which went on to be quoted and linked to death), N-o-r's similar statement had to do with the conversation at hand. There's no forkin' reason to use it as part of a general "Welcome to PEEL" message.

Speaking of... Welcome to PEEL, Trchri.

With all the gadgets his body has at anyone point, his weight could fluxuate a lot.

Wait a moment, I am suprized that you forgot to mention this:
From 30% Iron Chef:
"I'm 30 percent iron!"
Isin't iron heavier than metal?

Iron is a metal.

Metal is not a specific element, it's a collective designation of a vast number of elements, alloys and  chemical elements, that can conduct heat and electricity.

...I'm surprised nobody mentioned this, but in BSNBAOTV, Dwight carries Bender. (he crawls out of the safe marked "Bender's Loot", which Dwight was carrying) Therefore, either Dwight found some Dr. Flimflam Miracle Cream or Bender cannot weigh 525 lbs.

Gather 'round, children.

Remember our lesson from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?  Comic cartoon characters can do anything...as long as it's funny when they do it.

Bender's fluctuating weight, Leela's often super-human strength, Nibbler having less mass than the dark matter within him, even Homer's seemingly limitless capacity for beer and unsaturated fats -- they all rely on this basic principle of cartoonology.

So, as this is a cartoon, all these seeming illogicalities are perfectly acceptable.  Bender can simply weigh less at times, but only when it's funny.

could some one convert his weight to metric terms then and only then I'll know how he weighs.
For me lbs means nothing

525 pounds are about 238 kilograms.

Bender can't weigh that much! Dwight carred him when he was in the safe, and, while he was struggling, there's no way a 12-year-old can carry 525 pounds.

It was an anti-grav safe, that's why Dwight could carry it

Maybe Bender's weight varies because the metals he is made of vary over time?

For example, Bender could get upgraded every now and then and a bit of him could be replaced with a new partmade of a different metal that could weigh more or less than the old one. I forget which episode it is, but in one episode it is revealed Bender has sets of spare legs - maybe his legs at the time were made of iron, and the new ones were made out of Zinc for example. Apart from his CPU chip and personality, there could be very little of the original Bender that was made in that Mexican factory left.

This could also explain the 150/220% of metals that make up Bender.  smile

I do like the theory that his weight varies according to how many things he has stolen recently.  smile

Darn, this Re-check section is full of ancient bumped threads. Maybe I should look in here more often- it seems there are a lot of points I'd like to make in these threads.

On with it!

The whole "being frozen" thing really provides the answer by itself: You get frozen- the metabolism stops. The whole point of being frozen is that all of your tissue has to be frozen (and thawed) at once, so crystallization cannot occur. Crystallization of the water in the cells is what kills tissue, since it ruptures the membrane. Scientists can actually freeze a person with no crystallization (and therefore, no death), but the un-freezing presents the real problem.
Anyhow- when the matabolism stops, you don't absorb nutrients, as Teral said, and the stomach/intestine content is frozen as well.

I think not, because of reasons put forth in that "metal percentages" thread...

Wrong! They are two metric tons overweight, yes... That's the countess alone. You see, when the countess is sucked into the hole, they are not overweight anymore, meaning they would have to have lost at least those two metric tons (and maybe more), see?

Its suppose to be a joke. Who would have guessed that bender would pop out of the safe? Not all things should be read into, just accept them and laugh.
